Although the cat is not the pink one imagines it to be, it has a faint tinge of this colour in the fur. The cat is the first cameo Persian to be bred in New Zealand and the Southern Hemisphere and is seven and a half months old. Mr. Arthur has been breeding cats of a speicalised type for the past 10 to 12 years and he has 22 adult cats and about nine kittens. He was a judge in the cat show held in Palmerston North."
