Callista Sheer Brilliance of Crestwood

This girl reminds me more of a pure Asian Leopard Cat then an F1.  Born frosted, she wasn't the most exciting newborn to look at, but WOW how she has blown off that frosting to reveal a fur quality that will just blow you away!  She has a stunning clear, glittered (yes, I said glittered F1!), and colorful coat with intense black markings clear down to the skin everywhere for a very high contrast look.  And I simply cannot say enough about her wild head, structure, movement, and voice.  Pictures do not begin to convey the beauty and wild essence of this animal.  And as if her amazing looks weren't enough, she is exaggeratedly affectionate!  She jumps excitedly into my arms when I call her just so she can wrap her arms around my neck to hug me, and kiss my face.  I would like to thank my friend, Julie Calderon of Callista Bengals, for sending me this one of a kind girl back out of our homebred Patience.  You have really done an incredible job socializing Shimmer!
