Greygables Diane DuBois
Beautiful DeeDee arrived with us in September. She is a promising little silver girl, and the plan is to add her to our breeding program and mate her to our own boys when they are all ready.
DeeDee er vår vakre lille sølvjente. Hun har utviklet seg fint og og planen er å bruke henne på våre egne gutter. Hun har lovende benstamme, nydelig sølv og som liten med slående vakre ravfargede øyne. Kanskje utvikler øyenfargen seg til mer grønn når hun blir eldre. Hun har vært gjennom sin første hjertescan med normalt hjerte, og HD-resultater viser at hun er godkjent for avl.

DeeDee is from Greygables Maine Coon cattery, where Sibylle is now retired from breeding. DeeDee is one of the very the last breeding cats from the Greygables cattery. Sibylle and Greygables have been essential for our breeding program from our first and oldest breeding female Olenna, and we are forever grateful to be able to continue working with the Greygables lines.
DeeDee’s sire Nathan also has lines back to Manitou’s early lines from my breeder friend Mia Söderberg, who helped me start my breeding programme with stud service and lots of advice. DeeDee’s dam is from Nayomi Franken’s Tabula Rasa lines based on US show lines with good type, size and health screening.
Diane is a French variant of Diana, the Greek goddess for hunting. DuBois means “from the forest” in French, and DeeDees name points to a hunter; we will see if she lives up to her name.
