Welcome to Winterfrost – a small Michigan Oriental Shorthair cattery, and very occasionally Colorpoint Shorthairs and Siamese. We actively show our cats in the Cat Fanciers Association (CFA) and occasionally The International Cat 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 horses, an elderly Irish Setter, and a variety of Oriental Shorthairs.
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 grand offspring in all. Winter came to live with us when she retired from raising kittens. Winter was also the mother of our first Oriental Shorthair – GP El-Dia LyuYienJinLaoShu, otherwise known as Mouse.
