Azima's Flash Dancer
At the time of Barb's death, there were seven kittens remaining in her home - and fortunately, each one was a different combination of color, eye color, sex, and pattern! Here they are in a list:
As you can imagine, it was not hard to tell these kittens apart! But we went one step further and checked Barb's sales contracts, breeding log, and customer list to make sure she had not sold another kitten of the same color and sex before our arrival on the scene. In the case of Azima Flash Dancer, photographic evidence was particularly easy to follow, due to the red "lightning bolt" over her right eye.

Again, once we had access to Barb's computer, we found a pedigree for "three Azima girls" born on May 26. We also found the corresponding entry in Barb's breeding log, showing Patsy Katz as the sire of two classic tabby girls (see Purrfect Wonder and Camille's pages) and a tortie smoke. Photographic evidence was in Barb's computer for Flash was rampant, as mentioned above.

To put the finishing touch on this information, we found that Barb had registered with CFA a litter born 5/26/08, processed on 8/27/08.
