WHO ARE DA BRUDDAHS?
first show cat was GP
Davisiam Big Money ("Bucky"). After only one show, I was immediately
hooked on showing and gladly accepted the challenge of granding
his littermate brother CH, GP, RW Davisiam Barrymore ("Barry").
Barry and Bucky, the first
following year I got GP,
RW Davisiam Dude, who
earned a Regional Win (RW) as well as receiving my first ever
"Best Cat" rosette (which would certainly not be the
Dude, the third "bruddah"
this time I had figured that if I wanted to keep up this fascinating
hobby I needed to consider "growing my own." While
I was considering this, GP, NW Davisiam Rhett Butler showed up in my life. Rhett's whole
mission in life was to grand so that his mother could become
a DM (Distinguished Merit). Rhett had other plans and ended his
show year with a National
as well as being the Short
Haired Premier of the Year (SPOTY). He came in 2nd.
The elegant Mr. Butler (Rhett),
the fourth "bruddah"
came up with my cattery name of Da Bruddahs to honor these four boys, as they're
all brothers (they have different fathers, but CH Chimcheree
Chloe of Davisiam DM is mother to all), and without them and
Ed Davis, who mentored me, I wouldn't be here. It's also a nod
to life in Hawaii, a place that is dear to my husband's and my
another brother, GP,
RW Davisiam Chace of Da Bruddahs entered my life, and from there it has
been onward and upward!
Chace, who has extravagant
became the fifth "bruddah"
