they received them:
Mollycoddled Bojangles of Ahmischi
Blue Lynx Point Male
see a tribute to Bo on our memorial page.*
Our very first cat we granded on our own was this beautiful Blue Lynx
He was bred by Kevin & Kristi Pfister. Thank-you for this wonderful
opportunity & for my start with
lynx points! He made a tremendous impact on my breeding program. Those
tiny 'mouse ears', super sweet
expression, wonderful personality, & overall great type and head
passed these attributes on. He is sorely missed.
Not only was Bo our first Grand, but he also earned our first Regional
Atlantic Himalayan Club's 23rd Best Himalayan Nationally 1998-1999
Great Lakes Region 2nd Best of Color 1998-1999
Great Lakes Region 3rd Best of Breed 1999-2000
Good was our very first HOMEBRED Grand Champion!!!
She was born in September 1996 & should have granded much sooner, but
motherhood was calling
and she was having many heat cycles. She had obtained more than a
quarter of her grand points when we
decided to let her have some kittens. She came back out to the show
world in full force in 2000 when she
finished her grand! Also, at one show as s a kitten, Good took BEST
Kitten in every final & one 3rd Best
Kitten where she would become highest scoring kitten in show!!

He achieved many BEST Cats in the finals & was also Highest Scoring
Premier in show a couple times,
and once tied with another cat for Best In Show!! Yingy was a 3 show
Grand, and at his last show
earned 88 points, which would have made him a one show grand! So close!

Tonka was well on his way to a Regional Win, but unfortunately his show
career came to a halt due to
a tragic family event. He is named for his beautiful dad, Acka, and
because he is built like a Tonka truck,
just like his dad was! He had a great kitten career, competing along

Grands in 3 months!

We are so thrilled that Faith earned the GC title! We always knew this
girl was special!
She granded on August 16, 2009 in Brockport, NY! We really wanted to be
able to do this for her breeder, Sheri Phillips & her husband Dennis, as
she would be their first whole Grand Champion!!
We are so happy for them, and are so grateful to them for allowing Faith
to share our home & lives!
She was so fun to show, it's hard to believe it's over! Many, many
thanks to Sheri & Denny, and to
those who supported Faith during her show career!! We look forward to
what she will add to our lines!
GP DeMiara Cry Baby of Ahmischi
"Cry Baby" or "Cryers"
Tortie Point Female
What a sweet, wonderful cat this girl is.....loves to lick you & stand
on her hind legs to put her front paws
on your legs like a dog! She loves everybody and has such a cute, sad
look to her face! We can't thank
Debi Cotton of Co-Bridge cattery enough for sending Cry Baby to us! Our
original plans were to show this
girl in Championship, but circumstances led to her spay & she was too
nice not to show. So at 6 1/2 years
old she hit the shows for the very first time!! She took to it like a
pro! She was a fast grand, granding in
just 4 shows! She is a large girl with big boning, large expressive eyes
with lovely blue eye color, and
a great body with wonderful light coat! We are very honored to be able
to own a DeMiara cat. Cry Baby
makes Grand #77 for the DeMiara cattery, her breeder Barbara Norris-Eckerle
can be very proud!!!
We'd like to mention a few
kitties that have also earned Regional Awards & some that are close to Granding.
