2023-2024 Show Season at Cacao
GC Cacao Scented Garden
Littermate to GC Cacao Summertime Blues and repeat of GC NW Cacao Intrusive Thoughts and GC Cacao Tisket, "Scentsy" might just be the prettiest girl we have had in years! From her stunning eye color and perfectly round eyes to her tiny little ears, she is quite the perfect package.
Scentsy granded 11/5/23!
GC Cacao Hasty
This amazing blue & white boy is a son of GC, NW Cacao Intrusive Thoughts. Hasty granded in just one show! He is a massive boy but has the sweetest silly personality like his dad. After granding, Hasty has gone to three very competitive shows with national level competition and made all but one final!
Hasty Granded on 2/4/24!
Hasty is available.
CH Cacao Capricious
Littermate to the amazing GC Cacao Hasty, Capri is a lovely blue silver mack tabby & white girl. She has done very well at the shows and is soooo close to finishing her Grand Champion title. This sweet girl has one of the best heads we have produced in a while, so she will be staying with us.
Cacao Glitter Dust and Cacao Bling-Bling
Two stunning silver tabby girls by GC NW Cacao Intrusive Thoughts x Cacao Coral Bells. We can't decide between them yet! We might just have to keep them both for now! Bling-Bling had a very successful kitten career, and Glitter Dust had to wait for her time to shine! They have two very pretty brothers that will be starting soon as well!
GC Cacao Against All Odds
While in recent years, we have become well known for our bicolors, Cacao was originally started (and has always loved) our Himalayans. We have found ourselves making choices over the years and slowly dwindled our Himalayan program, to the point we have often contemplated closing the Himalayan program altogether. The sire to this amazing flame point is a solid black male CPC, GC Cacao Rise Against. "Against" just didn't seem to want to breed, so we scheduled him to be neutered... three different times over the past 4 years. And we canceled each time at the last minute. At nearly 6 years of age, Rise Against finally did begin to sire - and Oddy is from his first litter! We still don't know what the future will be with our pointed program, but we have felt extremely fortunate to have been able to produce this stunning boy.
Oddy Granded 11/11/23!
GC Cacao Vanilla Swirl
While we have decided to close our American Shorthair program, we did have some very amazing kittens to show this year - Vanilla is one of those! She and her sister Cinnabon had fun in the kitten class, then Vanilla went on her own to championship and granded in 3 shows!
Vanilla Granded on 2/24/24!
Vanilla is available to a breeding program that will keep the breed future intact by sharing lines with other breeders.
CH, GP Cacao Impulsive Behaviors
"Imp" is the litter sister to GC, NW Cacao Intrusive Thoughts (Yeet). She was shown once in championship, and didn't really like it, so we tried her with motherhood - which she also didn't like. Since we have both her brother and full sister (GC Cacao Tisket) already in our program, it was an easy decision to spay Imp and let her enjoy early retirement. She put on so much coat and weight, we thought to try showing her again - and she loved it! She was a two-show grand and has continued to attend some shows this season for fun.
Imp Granded 11/11/23!
GC Cacao Star Knight of Storybrooke
One of three show quality babies in our "Star" litter, Knight made quite a good start at his first show, getting over halfway to his Grand title in an extremely competitive class of bicolors. Knight has an amazing home waiting for him after the completion of his show time with us here at Cacao.
Knight granded in his 2nd show! We had a lot of fun showing him as a Grand before he went to his new home with Storybrooke!
GC Cacao Comic Relief of Everpaw
Considering Comic's lineage, we should have realized he was going to take a while to come into his full potential, but we still seem to be lacking that patience at times! Like both his father, GC NW Cacao Intrusive Thoughts, and his grandfather, GC RW Cacao Scented Valentine, we really thought Comic was probably pet quality - just not quite good enough. He didn't even sell as a pet! So we just let him grow up and... boy, did he ever!
Comic is a ONE SHOW GRAND at 8 months of age! He is now in his new home with Everpaw Cattery.
GP, RW Cacao Foxglove
Two years ago, we did two breedings with the intention of creating CPCs to cross a second generation to (hopefully) produce some pointed kittens. While so far we haven't quite gotten there, we did get some amazing 2nd generation CPCs! Both Foxglove and his brother Hellebore are in the premiership (neuter) class and will be available after their time in the show rings.
Foxglove also was shown as a kitten and achieved a Regional Win!
Foxglove granded in his 2nd show! And he made a couple of Best Cats too! He is now is his forever home with Beverly and family.
GC Cacao Fire Bomb of Friskykits
This big red tabby & white boy is out of GC RW Scandalcats Maui Jim, DM x GC Cacao Flower Bomb. He has a beautiful look to him, but what is most notable is his size and boning! At 8 months he is just an oz shy of 10 pounds! He is such a sweet, silly goofball.
Fire Bomb granded in his third show at just 8 months of age. This boy just keeps getting better! Fire Bomb is now in his new home on the west coast with Friskykits Persians.
2022-2023 Show Season at Cacao
GC, NW Cacao Feckless
This beautiful boy made his show debut at the prestigious Cotton States Cat Club show as an open - and left the show as a one-show Grand! He is littermate to the lovely GC, RW Cacao Fickle. We continued to show him as a grand and he exceeded all our expectations!
With the show season at an end, we can announce - Feckless is a National Winner! We never expected he would do so well, we were just hoping for a nice Regional Win, but he kept wowing us every weekend.
Feckless finished as 13th Best Cat National, Regions 1-9!
GC, RW Cacao Caribbean Breeze
"Breezy" was mostly shown as a kitten in the 2021-2022 season, but, as a split season kitten, she had to wait until the end of the 2023 season to official claim her title of Regional Winner! She made many finals as a kitten and went on to become a ONE SHOW Grand Champion against the amazing competition of her sisters (who also made finals with her!)
Breezy was 7th Best Kitten in the Gulf Shore Region!
GC, RW Cacao Fickle
This exciting brown tabby & white female is out of GC, RW Augustjoy Reckless Abandon of Cacao x CH RW Cacao Poseidon. She is absolutely adorable and already has been doing exceptionally well at the shows!
Fickle's kitten career was quite amazing - she went to 40 rings, and she made 40 finals!
Fickle made her adult show debut against her brother (who granded in one show!) She still managed to get just over halfway to her Grand title competing against him! Fickle granded on 11/26/22!
Fickle is a Regional Winner! Fickle was 5th Best Kitten in the Gulf Shore Region!
GC, RW Cacao Storm Dancer
It's been a while since we had an American Shorthair female to show, and this girl has been worth the wait! Easily one of the best American Shorthairs we have produced, she had a fantastic kitten career!
Dancer granded 8/14/22!
Storm Dancer is a Regional Winner! Dancer was 14th Best Kitten in the Gulf Shore Region!
GC, RW Cacao Jubilee of NeshamaSheli
One of four amazing show quality kittens from a litter of 7, Jubilee is owned and shown beautiful by Charyl & Chad of NeshamaSheli. She is an absolute joy to watch in the ring as she is always up to something. GC Cacao Root Beer also lives with them!
Jubilee granded 8/13/22!
Jubilee is a Regional Winner! Jubilee was 17th Best Cat in Championship in the Midwest Region!
GC Cacao Kanak Attack
Another from the amazing 4 show kittens from one litter, this is the only boy we kept back to show. Kanak granded quickly, even against his sisters! He also made quite a few top 10 placements!
Kanak Granded 8/13/22!
Kanak (call name now "Joey") has made his home in the northeast and had an awesome first show with his new mom, Andie, making 7/8 finals (BEST 5 times!!!) We are so excited he found such a perfect home!
GC Cacao Instigator
"Insta" is a beautiful silver patched tabby & white that steals hearts pretty much everywhere she goes - including ours. Originally, we weren't going to keep her, but then we just.. couldn't let her go! She has a face too cute to resist, and her balance won over the judges. She wasn't the fastest cat to grand, but she kept her condition through the late winter and spring and finished in April!
