In the summer of 2002 there was a big cat show in Helsinki. So we decided to take a few days trip to Finland.

In that show we met a fantastic NFO male DK*Havheksen Hannibal. It was huge and just touch him he purred.
There was also a very promising young turtle, May Gangee Audax Felix.
A few months later, in October 2002, we returned to Helsinki to attend the FIFe World Show, this time with our male DK*Admiral v. Schnneider Felis Jubatus.
There we met again with Hannibal and his breeder. And with the same tortie girl now as an adult and she was more than promising ......

It was clear .. We wanted a daughter of these two wonderful cats.

Sari, the breeder of Hopeahännnän, wrote us in January of next year. Our Helen was born.¡¡

For the third time, in April 2003 we returned to Finland time to pick her up at an exhibition in Turku which she attended with his brothers. Already in his first judgment Raymond Saetre, the judge, loved her and was nominated.

I remember the first night of hotel. Helen had, for the first time, left his home, had traveled many kilometers and she was with a person she did not know. But she had a safe place to sleep, the head of Joaquin ....

Helen is a very large female, with an outstanding head and a quiet character and very balanced. She is a splendid show cat and her results along years has been very good.

It was the best cat of semi long hair in Spain in 2004 and was number 11 in Europe that year. In September 2008 the European Championship ended after gaining 9 Best in Show, 18 nominations and 13 Best in Variety

For now, just give us a few wonderful kittens from litters K, S and T
