A-KERR'S VANNA RUSA

TICA- RW SGC / CFA- GC NW AG

AW BENGAMUR Alina of A-KERR'S X CH A-KERR'S Ima Lookin' Even Better

DOB 3. 28. 17

 

Vanna is such a personality! She is gregarious, outgoing and confident. Most likely to ambush me coming around the corner and just a sweet, purring sensation. I love her light gold coloring and bright rosettes. Her coat texture is like velvet and sprinkled in glitter, the iridescent attribute that comes from air encircling the hair shaft. For now, she does have some whited expression on her underside but I expect it will cream over with time. She has the over the top playfulness that her sire, Stephen (CH A-Kerr's Ima Lookin' Even Better), did as a kitten.

Vanna is following in her mother's footsteps, winning 6th place in agility at the prestigious CFA International show in Portland, Oregon November 18-19th, 2017. She has gone to rank 5th in the Great Lakes region in agility right under her mom at 4th. She ended the 2018-2019 season as the first Bengal Agility Grand and only Agility National Winner (AGN) with a career score over 8900!

Vanna’s amazing achievements :

National Winner in CFA, placed 20th of all cats in regions 1-9, 2018-2019

National Winner in CFA agility, placed 9th overall with a career score over 8900, 2018-2019

Regional Winner in the CFA Great Lakes region, 4th Best Cat, Best Bengal, 2018-2019

Supreme Grand Champion TICA, 2018-2019

Regional Winner in the TICA Great Lakes region, 18th Best Cat, 6th Best Shorthair Cat, Quad Grand Champion, Best Bengal, 2017-2018.

We are so proud of this little girl! The Bengal standard tends to be written to favor the males of the breed. We call for heavy muscling, and substantial boning which can be hard to get on the smaller females of the breed. However, Vanna managed to stay in condition, healthy and happy throughout her second show season. She is truly a show cat, she relished in every bit of attention she got, and was a complete lovebug with everyone who helped me in showing her, the judges, the spectators, and every member of her fan club in this incredible journey.

Vanna, doing her agility thing below! Bengals are a high energy breed and excel at activities like this! Plus what else would you do at a cat show during the down time?

Vanna:

  • Colorful, short coat. I like her pattern flow and the c shaped rosettes. Highly glittered.

  • Lovely profile and head shape. Her chin is strong as well, making her what I need in my program!

  • Huge luminous eyes, puffy nose leather. Her expression matches her persona.

  • Personality is simply hilarious. She is easy to handle, amazing to play with. Agility super star and fun!

  • White underside. Her mother comes from whited lines, I hope she keeps it!
