Welcome to Winterfrost - a small Michigan Oriental Shorthair cattery, and occasionally Colorpoint Shorthairs and Siamese. We actively show our cats in the Cat Fanciers Association (CFA) shows and occasionally The International Cat Fanciers Association (TICA) primarily in the Great Lakes region but also throughout the United States. The humans here at Winterfrost are Valerie and Jim, and we share our lives with two elderly Quarter Horses, some elderly English Cocker Spaniels and a variety of Oriental Shorthairs, Colorpoint Shorthairs and the occasional Siamese.
The name Winterfrost is mostly in honor of Leggs Winter Wind of El-Dia DM. Winter was a very special bluepoint Oriental Shorthair that was the first AOV Oriental to achieve the title of Distinguished Merit. Winter had five grand champions and grand premiers in her first litter and had seven grands in all. Winter came to live with us when she retired from raising kittens. Winter was the mother of our first Oriental Shorthair - GP El-Dia LyuYienJin LaoShu, otherwise known as Mouse.
