Jean Mill and I were such very good friends and I tried to get to visit her as much as I could! We had so many wonderful visits. I had been taught a lot about genetics at a very young age from some truly brilliant Sheep breeders, that got me to where I am today. Jean was a well-known Genesis.
Jean had a wonderful dream she wanted to produce kittens and cats that looked like the wild Asian leopard cat; however, have the temperament of the domestic cat. She also wanted the cats and kittens to have the beautiful whited tummies that most wild cats had.
This was a very exciting adventure and I loved working on this very much. We worked on the big round nocturnal eyes lined with black, the large rosettes with a lovely flow, that if you held them up you could imagen the rosettes flowing off their backs.
I wanted good health, temperament, wonderful movement first then color coat and pattern. I was very strict with my program. Every year Had thrilling new achievements.
The whited tummy was a little trickier than some of the other developments of this breed. I can still see her smile when I brought here a whited cat, kitten or even a picture of one I had raised. She gave my so much encouragement! I loved her dearly. She is no longer with us however I can still however see in my mind her lovely smile!
At this time the majority of my cats all have beautiful whited tummies! She was so right having this really makes the cats special. Below you will see some of the first whited cats or cats from other catteries I perched, to build my lines. This page is my favorite as it shows some the history of the evolution of the breed. I hope you enjoy the pictures!
At the top you will see just how beautiful the later generation has become! Jean was so right the whited tummy really makes them pop especially on the darker cats!

Leopardstrail White gold at almost 7 years old
Majestic pride would like to proudly present Leopardstrail White Gold! I am so honoured that Kathy Ward would let me have this wonderful boy! His white is incredibly white as you can see from the pictures. He has a very nice rosetted pattern to go along with the gorgeous white trim. Now look at this cats head! It is to die for! Wonderful wild look with huge whisker pads, Strait long profile, deep chin, wonderful expression. The rich deep sunken eyes lined with black that give him the mysterious, exotic, wild look, we all adore. If all of this is not enough he is a purr muffin and all you have to do is touch him and the motor is just a purring. He loves everyone. Kathy did a wonderful job of bringing him up I could not be happier!

Majestic Pride Fancy Frosting
Fancy a homegrown girl is a really fun cat. Her and White Gold have many qualities with similarities and should make an amazing whited-to-whited breeding! I am excited! This cat although still too young to tell for sure has a brilliant white tummy. I love her striking big round eyes and huge whisker pads. I really love to watch is this little girl move, as she has that movement I am trying to keep strong in my cats. She has a lovely pattern to go with her Fancy Frosting. I particularly love the shoulder markings. It will be fun to see what comes out of this whited program in the next couple of years.
Majestic Pride Gold Mine
Gold Mine is my little home grown girl! There are many things I love about this girl! First is her almost magical looking white trim. It is so soft looking and white, to me it has a very elegant look to it. She, just like White gold has this wonderfully brilliant white tummy. This cat is so so soft to touch and is covered in the beautiful glitter. I cannot even imagine what White Gold and her will produce. She like White Gold has the Deep chin and strait strong profile. She is such a lovely cat to have around; I feel I am so fortunate to have her.
