My name is Jean Papo. Welcome to my Abytopia
Abyssinians website, created to
showcase my journey towards
becoming an Abyssinian breeder of top quality show
including photos of my Queens, Ladies-in-Waiting, Studs,
and Kittens. I have been involved with a love affair of Abyssinian
cats ever since I fell in love with my first ruddy Abyssinian
kitten almost eighteen years ago... my beloved T-Rex. Sadly,
he passed away this past summer...until then he cuddled up
with me every night, paws around my neck, and gave me big
slobbery kisses with a mischievious twinkle in his eyes.
From that moment on, I was hooked.
When a friend of mine took me to my first Abyssinian Cat
show in 2003 or so, I saw the
most beautiful aby's in
the world, and then I think a little of that magical show
fell on me, and it
became my goal to
someday own, breed and show the results of my own version
of aby heaven materialized here on earth.
I saw that breeding, raising and showing Abyssinians, affectionately
known as Aby's,
is not only great fun, but it involves a lot of help from
friends, good luck, and hard work. Things don't always turn
out the way we hope, and misfortune can be the flip side
passion....However, I've had plenty of advice and some handholding
perilous moments, and all in all, there is more joy than heartache
in the endless quest
to succeed in breeding the perfect Abyssinian Cat. Thanks
go to all my friends and fellow Abyssinian breeders who have
me along this fascinating journey.
In 2005, my Foundation Queen, CH Fin Bheara Cote d'Azure
of Abytopia, aka Zoozoo,
bred with GC NW Gulfco's Sweet
Talkin' Guy of Alexy,
DM, produced two beautiful fawn Abyssinian Kittens.
The experience is all that I had hoped it would be and
more. These Abyssinian Kittens are, in my biased opinion,
little angels, only now they are big grown up angels!
Time will tell if I succeed with my goal,
you will be the judges, but, in the meantime, this journey
has blessed me with hours of happiness,
joy and positive feelings about the future that lies ahead
of my Abyssinian Cats and me!
