Pictured here is an absolutely gorgeous representation of a female seal mitted. At one year old, Athena has the requisite white chin and full belly stripe every breeder needs to attain if they want to produce high quality Ragdoll cats. Athena is the full sister of Zeus, pictured above. I see Athena’s grandmother, Angelique in the eyes, and her mother, Josette, in the ear shape. That great fur and sound structure is all from her father, Aristede.

Athena, now called Bella, lives in Santa Barbara with her family, The Murphys. Patty tells me Bella is her love. That makes my heart sing.
