Swift Soda Pop was Supreme All Breeds Exhibit in Show at the Christmas in July 2013 Show.

Soda Pop is a tawny Abyssinian from Merindalee Sam I Am and Swift Poppy. She carries the cinnamon coat colour gene and the dilute gene for coat colour. She has lovely golden eyes, a short resilient coat and a very affectionate personality.

Her first litter of trouble was to Highgaitpaws Van Morrison (Imp USA) on the 31st January 2014. We would like to thank Helen from Jodaerin Abyssinians in Perth for allowing Soda Pop to have kittens with Morrie. She had two cinnamon kittens and one tawny boy all with fizzy pop names!

Soda Pop's second litter was to Johari Zambezi. Just two boys, one born on the 22nd October 2014 and one born the next day, both blue in colour named after waterways in Africa.

In January 2015 Soda retired from breeding and showing.
