Eclipse is a second generation home-grown Bengal within our cattery along with her sister Dark Magik and represents our continued efforts in breeding only the best looking Bengals! Chirpy and friendly, this Superior Silver is going to be continuing our efforts in breeding a more pure silver line with the striking doughnut rosettes and stark contrast that everyone raves about! These bold large doughnut rosettes have consistently been past down for generations from Ebony Spice and then her mother whom showcased them before her velvety sheen black took over. We have high hopes for her as we plan to pair her up with yet another stunning silver stud, Sub Zero, whom also displays the bold doughnut rosettes himself!
Eclipse features a dark charcoal look herself. This Dark look has, in fact, genetically been programmed into this lineage from the non-agouti gene that is passed on. This gene is from the Panther family, hence why Shadow Walker is a Mini Panther herself.
Her mother, Shadow Walker, was born and raised within our Cattery. She came directly from one of our most sought after breeders, Ebony Spice, whom was very desired for her dark brown appeal and her large doughnut rosettes. While young, it was clear that Shadow Walker carried on the tradition of the large doughnut rosettes she inherited from her mother and so an obvious choice in our Breeder program. Shadow Walker has gone on to produce our next two stars, brown beauty Dark Magik and the next Silver Stunner Eclipse here!
Due to her unique genetics of being a carrier of one of the genes needed to produce Charcoals, she specializes in producing 50% charcoal litters when paired with our stunning stud Sub Zero, whom is also a double carrier of the other needed gene to create those creative Charcoals. This lineage produces the best Charcoals around due to those awesomely ginormous doughnut rosettes. In almost every litter one is certain to be picked as a top Breeder for the next generation or a Show cat.
Eclipse Produces: Brown & Silver & Charcoals in both colors (pure for Rosettes)
Why is Pedigree Important?
The major advantage of buying a pedigree cat is that you know what you are getting! This is extremely important when considering the initial cost of a kitten, ongoing investment, the cats personality with respect to the breed and the Bengals long-term health.
