Greygables William Wordsworth
Wonderful William arrived in Norway late May 2017, and we love his mild friendly personality and good looks! He is a promising creme mackerel tabby white bicolour. He has passed all health screenings and has sired three litters in our cattery.
William will be neutered autumn 2019 after a few stud services to breeder colleagues.
William blir kastrert sensommer/høst 2019, etter noe få paringer for oppdretterkolleger. Han vil da omplasseres til en rolig familie på østlandet, og vi ser etter hans perfekte varige hjem som pensjonert avlskatt, antagelig sammen med Betzy. Les om voksen omplassering her.

William seems to be homozygous mackerel (spotted) tabby, and he can also give highwhite.
He is from a litter of 8 kittens, and he is the only one intended for breeding. Enormous thanks to breeder Sibylle at Greygables Maine Coon for once again trusting us with a precious baby from valuable lines. His sire Indigo is a second generation Maine Coon from Dutch cattery Daddy Longtail. Paternal granddam Mother of Blues is a new Foundation cat (F1) born in the Niagara Falls area in the northwest USA. William has inherited type from his maternal grandsire CascadeMtn Sam McLeod, whose parents are highly prized CFA and TICA show champions. Maternal granddam Strictly Coons Harriet is a large and well typed female, as his mother Reena.
Our cream dream boy is named after the famous English poet William Wordsworth (1770-1850) who initiated the Romantic period in English literature. The name William is also very popular in Norway, perhaps influenced by the groundbreaking TV-series SKAM. The meaning of the name is “will, desire” and “helmet, protection“.
Show Results and Plans
William is under evaluation for breeding and will be shown occasionally to follow his development. He is a sweet boy, but could have better typed forehead and box/chin. William will never be a show star, but he has given beautiful offspring.
