Greygables William Wordsworth
Wonderful William arrived in Norway late May, and we love his mild friendly personality and good looks! He is a promising creme mackerel tabby white bicolour. Hopefully he will pass all health screenings and become a breeding male in our cattery. He is unrelated to all our other cats.

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 show champions. Maternal granddam Strictly Coons Harriet is a large and well typed female, as his mother Reena. All in all we are very excited to follow this boy’s development.
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“.
More and better photos will come; I promise! The old camera does not work anymore, and mobile phone snapshots do not do William justice. He is really a pretty boy. :-)

William is under evaluation for breeding and will be shown occasionally to follow his development.
