In 2010 Riverlight Cattery obtained our first LaPerm kitten from Karen Owen of Banshee cattery in New South Wales. His name was Banshee Firestorm: a red and white male. We successfully showed "Fiery" throughout 2010 where he was very successful, particularly considering many judges were unfamiliar with the breed.
In 2011 we commenced showing our first kittens from Fiery. We were very pleased with their type and temperaments and they have performed very well.
In 2013 we produced our second Riverlight Generation and these were shown as adults in 2014.
In 2013 at the ACF National Show, Riverlight LaPerms did very well.
It was particularly pleasing that Riverlight Arnou placed 14th in Group 3 entires (ring 2) out of 91 entries in that class.
