Moloko Forest Myths of RiKar Katts
There were 7 kittens born to Destiny. Of that 7 there are only two that have retained their fur as of this writing. For some reason the vet does not know, they have lost their fur, but it will grow back. Last year there were two that did the same thing. A family adopted those two, (Cypress & Ashley) cared for them, and today they have full blown, beautiful Wegie coats, and you would never know that anything had been wrong with them. The male weighs 16# and the female 9#. Below the pictures tell the story of their journey back to full glory. Please understand that it is a heart breaking situation for a breeder to have issues such as this, and I do take a definite risk in putting this on my website; but my whole philosophy of life is based on truth and being up front with people. I don't want anyone to say that I didn't tell them what was going on with any kitten they may want to adopt.
Born Feb. 18, 2015 with normal hair coat and good birth weight. Ashley, the girl, almost died.
This picture is taken one month after birth.
Picture taken June 12, 2015: Cypress on the left, Ashley on the right
Ashley (the girl) stayed a black; Cypress (the boy) went from the smoke color to eventually black/smoke. He was born black..
Cypress' fur is coming in blue/smoke.
There are three compromised kittens with this same hair loss and I fully expect them to "turn around" and begin fur growth again within a month, and then within four to five months, you will never know the difference. If you think you would want to take a chance with one of these babies please e mail me and I will send you pictures of what the kitten looks like now. I am not asking full price for these kittens, but there is no health guarantee with the contract except for a death guarantee.
- Red/White tabby boy - Hosea
- Black Mackerel Tabby girl - Deliliah
- Black Tortie/White girl - Rebecca
This is an e mail I got April 11, 2016 from Sally and Tony Kolodny who adopted Cypress and Ashley last year:
"We are sad to learn of your compromised five. We certainly experienced the same scenario with our two Wegies, who now have grown into gorgeous full coated totally healthy wonderfully dis positioned Wegies. We will be happy to send more pictures of our beautiful black tuxedo female and our now 19 pound black smoke tuxedo male. We stayed true to them when they were disadvantaged and we have been rewarded many times over. Sally and Tony"

Ashley - Girl
Just look at the picture at the very bottom. You would never believe they were the same cat. How beautiful she has become, and she isn't done yet.
Cypress - Boy Weighs 19# now. April 11, 2016
This is the pair of them: Ashley on the left, Cypress on the right. Cypress now weighs 19 pounds, quite a difference from his beginning.. I am so proud of how they have turned out, and so grateful to Sally and Tony for the wonderful care and love in opening their hearts.

See that "bull's eye" on Stormy's side? This is what makes him a "classic tabby" as opposed to the "mackerel tabby" which has the striping such as Fairchild .
