The Donskoy has advanced to Champion Status in TICA January 23, 2016



The Don Sphynx cat is now recognized by the Cat Fanciers’ Federation (CFF) as a provisional new breed until May 2015 when it will move to Championship status! I would like to give special thanks to Marina Shekoldina for the tireless hours she spent helping write the breed standard. Lilya Kovalenko, without your incredible cats and mentorship over the past few years I would not have been inspired to pursue this endevour! Mary Goehring, you welcomed and ushered me into the world of cat shows and led me to Debbie Isidorio, who knew the Don Sphynx should be part of the CFF, and began the process that led to this remarkable achievement for the Don Sphynx breed in the USA. Thanks to all the members of CFF who worked with me to see this to fruition. And of course a special thanks to my daughter Elizabeth for asking me to look at the cute hairless cat which began this journey into the world of the wonderful Don Sphynx cat.
