In 1978, she, together with the geneticist W. Sentuyallom, proceeded to remove the Bengal breed – an exotic exotic cat with a homely temperament.
They all turned out – in 1985, cats were officially registered in TICA, and in 1985 they were shown at exhibitions. Spectators were fascinated by the unique breed.
