Many of you know that one of our CFA icons has left us this passed weekend. Donna Davis was a pioneer of the Siamese breed as well as an All Breed CFA Judge for over 40 years. It is very rare to find a Siamese pedigree that does not contain at least one Thaibok ancestor. Donna’s contributions and influence on the Siamese cats of today are obvious to all Siamese enthusiasts familiar with their pedigrees. Even though she was not able to exhibit due to family and business obligations she still bred and shared her lines with many.
Donna leaves behind three grown children, Greg, Kate, and Teddy, two grandchildren and her ex-husband Ed Davis with whom she remained very close to.
The services will be held at the Austin F. Knowles, Inc. Funeral Home – Wednesday July 23, 2014 – 2 – 4 PM and 7 – 9 PM
128 Main Street
Port Washington, NY 11050
If anyone wants to make a contribution in Donna’s memory – please make it to the North Shore Animal League in Port Washington, NY.

Thank you all for your time!
There have been many requests for duplicate awards. All orders for duplicate awards are to be place with Jim & Teresa Land – firstname.lastname@example.org. Since we have no PayPal this year, you must send your payments to Russell Webb – 40 Totowa Road Wayne, NJ 07470 and please make checks out to: North Atlantic Region.
We have hit the 100 subscribers mark!! Well done everyone!
We have noticed a few problems with photo submissions. If you have or are using AOL please be sure to send your images as “attachments”, DO NOT EMBED the photo. If you have any question on whether or not it’s embedded, try sending it to yourself. If it is in the body of the email and not attached as a file, Marci will not be able to pull it from the email as a high resolution image.
Also, please make sure to identify the cat in the photos. Simply putting Fluffy, Kitten – will not suffice.
Looking to showcase your achievements this year with 200 of your closest friends? Look no further, we are now taking ads for the Regional Awards Booklet. Our prices are extremely reasonable and all profits go to the North Atlantic Region.
