Artist's Description

My mother’s three month old kitten. This is a new breed, called a Snowshoe. They are still relatively rare and very expensive. As you can probably guess, they were bred by crossing seal point siamese with another breed.

My mom got Mick by accident. She had bought a seal point kitten and went to the breeder’s house to pick him up. The breeder was out of town and her daughter told my mom to pick out her kitten. When Snowshoe kittens are young, they look just like seal points. The markings don’t come out until they are a few months old. Both litters were together in the same room, and my mother picked up the male that she thought she had bought. By the time the breeder got back and realized what happened, Mick was already a part of the family. My mom ended up with a cat that was worth several hundred dollars more than she had paid.
