Apollo is our very handsome Seal Point Mitted. He is very special to me being not only my first show cat, but also a cat I bred myself! I am so proud of all of his accomplishments and how wonderful he is at the cat shows and at hme. He loves to be hugged and cuddled, a trait he passes on to his kittens. He is my baby, and sleeps with me every night like a big teddy bear. I couldn’t imagine my life without him by my side. “Polly” is very loving, and easy going not only with people, but other cats as well. He is constantly purring and loves to give me big hugs! He is my favorite male (Shh!), and was born at our home, where he has lived his whole life. He has been very successful in the show halls, and has really held his own with outstanding competition. We thank Rene Knapp for giving Apollo his “BEST CAT” final in Montreal on November 24th, 2007, which means he is now a SUPREME GRAND CHAMPION!
Newsflash: Since CFA just accepted the mitted & colorpoint patterns this year (2008) we have been showing Apollo in CFA. He has been doing very well, and we’ve received some very honorable remarks from the judges that we are very happy about. I want to thank Walter Hutzler, Gary Veach, Kim Everett-Hirsch, Nancy Dodds and Lynn Search for finaling Apollo, and for their wonderful compliments about him! One judge even said that HE wanted to be the one that Granded Apollo! Many of these judges have said Apollo was the BEST example of a mitted they had seen THUS far. Thank you all so much for your constant love of Apollo!
THE LATEST NEWS: APOLLO HAS MADE CFA HISTORY FOR THE RAGDOLL BREED! APOLLO is now a CFA GRAND CHAMPION! This is an amazing accomplishment for a MITTED RAGDOLL! Mitteds were JUST accepted this year in CFA! Apollo is the FIRST SEAL POINT MITTED GRAND CHAMPION AND THE FIRST MITTED MALE GRAND CHAMPION! He is the SECOND MITTED GRAND CHAMPION IN CFA! Apollo achieved this honor at 3 years of age in March 2009. Apollo not only made history at WillowTreeRags by being our FIRST CFA Grand Champion, but also made CFA history! Apollo is also a home-bred kitten that we hand-selected, which makes this extra special!

*TICA SUPREME GRAND CHAMPION*
When I first saw Hushy, he was barely 5 weeks old. From his first photos I knew he’d be the one unrelated boy I MUST add to my cattery! From Tao, to Wally, to Swag… the only non-WillowTreeRags boys I’ve used in 15 years of breeding, Hushy is among the best and has so many qualities I think are absolutely a priority to keep in our breed, especially in my line. Hushy has fantastic type-proper ear set, shape and size, Hushy has big, deep ocean blue eyes… which for the judges has turned out to give him quite the edge over others with equal type. He has a dense, deep and proper Ragdoll chin, gentle change of direction, proper Ragdoll forehead, rounded muzzle, and nothing but a regally, breath-taking Ragdoll expression. His body…. WOW! He has tree trunk, thick legs, big rounded paws (perfectly adored with the longest most adorable toe tufts), a huge broad body, chest, hind quarters, and he is SOLID, HEAVY and MUSCLES, MUSCLES, MUSCLES! He has a soft coat, long in the correct places- mane & tail, non-matting, it always looks great. His markings are drawn-on perfect. No white spotting in his body color, no spots on his legs, a symmetrical “V”…. These photos of him were taken at only 11 months… we just can’t wait to see him mature more and more into a man! He had his first litter for us on August 19th, 2017.
Hushy attended his first show in Orlando, FL at the TICA SE Regional in July 2017. He was the Best Ragdoll in that show, against a large class of Ragdolls and some of the best Ragdolls of that time in the standings. He gained his Championship title at that show. Hushy attended his 2nd show in August 2017 in Largo, FL. He received 10 finals out of 12 rings with stiff competition, and achieved his Quadruple Grand Champion status here. He was also the 5th Best Allbreed Cat in the entire show… he put on his own special show for the judges and spectators also… playing with the judges, flopping on the judging table asking for belly rubs, and enjoying every minute of it. He loves to show… and we plan to go far with this boy this year… he is our new stud, and he will be a major part of our breeding program for many years to come.
Hushy has a fantastic pedigree with many lines we are familiar with, lines that I trust because of their genetic health. This boy just has it ALL! It’s a honor to have the chance of having Hushy as my own….
Thank you sooooo much my dear friend Ela for this outstanding boy!
Update: We are SO elated!! It has been SO easy showing Hushy, he is such a gentleman its no surprise the judges fall in love with him! It almost every show he has attended, he’s received BEST CATS.. and right in time, November 11th in Hartford, CT he receives a BEST CAT that would give him his SUPREME Grand Champion title by a judge who knows her Ragdolls, Theresa Kempton. Thank you so much, Theresa! We couldn’t be prouder… better yet? He attended a show a week later again in Largo, FL… and he was Elaine Hawksworth-Weitz’ Best AB Cat, too… But we certainly aren’t surprised! Hushy is phenomenal and everyone is noticing…. 🙂
