Chalk Mountain's Queen Vera
Registered Name: Glitznspotz Chalk Mountain FF Vera
Our affectionate Miss Vera is sweet with a playful side.
As a kitten, Vera was the most affectionate of the bunch. She loved sitting in anyone's lap for a good snuggle. Don't mistake her love for a cuddle as a sign that she doesn't like to play... because you would be wrong. Vera could give her siblings a run for their money, especially if a piece of lego accidentally rolled across the floor. As an adult not much has changed, she is still quick to ask the kids to brush her and enjoys paying with feathery toys. Vera loves lounging on her shelves in the cattio and climbing up the trees in our yard.
Vera is a perfectly healthy girl, she is up to date on her yearly hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) screening and has always stayed certified clear of any heart conditions. Vera's most recent HCM echo was on June 2023. Let us know if you would like a copy.
Vera has also had a full Wisdom DNA Panel done. The Wisdom Panel is the world's most comprehensive cat DNA test and is developed by leading geneticists and veterinarians. Along with insuring that Vera is 100% bengal breed, it also screens for 45+ health tests, 25+ trait tests, and blood type. Vera tested negative for every single health test in the Wisdom Panel. Proof of testing can be provided to you if requested.
Vera comes from a long line of brown bengals with black rosettes. Based on the results of her genetic testing she is a pure Brown spotted bengal with only one other genetic color marker.
Vera has one copy of the A/Pb (Agouti gene) which means she is a carrier for the Charcoal color variety. She also has the coveted Glitter Coat. This is a gene that makes the hair a softer texture and has an iridescent sheen to it. In the shade they look super shiny, and in the sun their coat can look like it's been sprinkled with golden dust.
