She has beautiful eyes that are an iridescent teal around the pupil surrounded by a copper. her personality is to die for. Cutie is certainly a fitting name.

BENGALLILY INVERSE ENIGMA
"KYTHERA"2.10.2021-5.25.2022

Kythera joined Elysian Bengals on May 5, 2021, and is out of our Elysian Dark Genesis and Silverstorm Maharani. This pairing was long sought after. Rani is out of Silverstorm and JustWild lines which we have been eying up for a while and with the more unexpected retirement of Silverstorm Crown Jewels aka Cortana we were seeking to add more Silverstorm to our lines. 

She is from a litter of two and is out first brown charcoal ever produced. She continues the legacy of incorporating Apb into our lines as well as our third cat that does not carry color point! 

 

Kythera is a Brown (Black) Charcoal Spotted Tabby. She is very loving, affectionate, playful, and just a tad crazy so she will definitely make a perfect companion for Roka. 

 

Kythera's call and show names are derived from the Warhammer Universe. She is named after a Harlequin troupe called Masque of the Veiled Path which is an inverse enigma. We thought this was perfect since Kythera was originally thought to be a silver charcoal and surprised us all. Her call name Antikythera (or Kythera for shor)t is named after an ancient artifact (typically called enigmas) thought be possibly be an ancient greek, hand-powered analogue computers. 
 

PROS: Silky soft pelt, dark dense markings, round eyes, medium length tail, dense body, puffy whisker pads, back skull, forward tilted ears.

Sadly Kythera passed away 5.25.2022 after suffering an unexpected saddle thrombosis while also 7 weeks pregnant. While there was no good options for treatment and the veterinarian informed us we were doing everything right, we of course are deeply saddened by her passing and she will be dearly missed.

Thank you Kylee Baquero of BengalLily Cattery for participating in this dual pairing and raising Kythera.
