Gr.Int.Ch. Calle av Froskeland
|This is our pride and joy!
Calle was born November 5th 1998 in a litter of 5 boys. He has the
sweetest temper, he loves to sit with his humans for hours and he
"nibbles" our fingers and toes, just because he loves us so
much! This is quite extraordinary, because he came to live with us as he
was one and a half years old. We should have taken him in much earlier,
because now it is very hard to join him with the group of cats he should
be living with! Calle does not accept other adult tomcats, neutered or
otherwise, if he hasn't been living with them from childhood. Which is
normal and understandable, he's the big guy now!! Calle has fathered
several litters already: at the bottom of this page you will find the
links to his kittens.
In this picture he is about 6 months old.
|Only 14 months old, Calle got his second title (International Champion). He has looked down from the stage more than once!|
|Apart from his temper
Calle has some very special features: his nose line is as straight as can
be, he has the softest coat I ever felt with long silky hair and a
beautiful ruff in the winter. The red is deep and the white is brighter
than snow! He is blotched with clear markings. Now that he's an adult, his big ears
are almost too wide apart with great tuffs on top. As you can see in the
pictures down lower, his head is a perfect triangle. On top of all these
great characteristics his tail is long with thick bones, he has sturdy, muscular legs and a wide chest. He is quite heavy, but has no fat
at all! As he will continue to grow for some time, I'm sure he'll end up
being a big, heavy and very strong cat, that is only manageable because of
his lovable character.
In this picture Calle is a little over 9 months old.
|Calle in the age of 6
weeks, with his mom and brothers and all by himself....
Already he had some very promising features: good setting of the ears, long nose; recognize him on the far right? His brothers and he kept mama Edrikke quite busy, getting into trouble all the time!
He got his deep color from his mom, she has a lovely warm torbie.

|And this is Calle in the
winter! The picture was taken January 2000, just before he reached his
second title. By the end of April he moved in with us and started his
"new" life as a stud.

And neither has his profile...
