Grand Champion Newton's Jay Tee - born 12-28-1941 pedigree

Breeder and Owner: Mrs. Virginia R. Cobb (Arthur 

Jay Tee was the first Siamese to earn CFA Grand Champion.

 From Billy Bancroft published October 1951
    Nice message came in today from Virginia Cobb, Newton, Mass. The one and only Virginia Cobb who sets the pace for Siamese breeders. It is always a nice day when you get a letter from her—she is that kind of a gal. I'm quoting her direct.
    "Grand Champion Newton's Jay Tee is scolding me. She hates the typewriter and starts to scold the minute I take the cover off. She looks fine in spite of her ten years—she is the kind of a cat that is always in show condition—with just a few days of combing and brushing she is ready for anything. You have seen the pix of her holding her nursing bottle (top of page)—I was amused a couple of months ago at a pix in Cats Magazine of a kitten doing the same thing. The caption story said that it took the owner several months to teach the kitten to do this. Jay Tee taught herself in one minute at the age of one month!!!! She just rolled over on her back—and up went her four feet and took over. She would 'show off' very willingly until she was six months old—then she would have no part of the bottle anymore. When the front door would open she would dash to the davenport, knowing that she would be placed between two pillows and have a 'swig'. NOW she dashes to a foot-stool where she is given a malted milk tablet when anyone comes in. She just sits there with her head cocked on one side waiting."
    Virginia Cobb calls my attention to the fact that few Siamese are exhibited after they are a couple of years old—there are exceptions of course — and Grand Champion Jay Tee is one of them.


Grand Champion Newton's Jay Tee 

    Published December, 1951

    All lovers of fine cats will share in the loss of Mrs. Arthur C. Cobb's Grand Champion Newton's Jay Tee who died as the result of an operation on October 8, 1951.
    Jay Tee was born Dec. 1, 1941. She was the first Seal Point Siamese to earn a Grand Championship, and had a tremendous show record. Unusual for a Siamese, she made, her most spectacular wins in her eighth year when at the Empire Show in New York, December 8 and 9, 1949, she was named by Sterling Webb, judge, Best Cat in the Siamese Specalty, and in the All-Breed was Best Samese, Best Female, and Best Champion.
    Jay Tee was breed by Mrs. Cobb from Oriental Naki Poo of Newton (Import) ex Ch. Wivenhoe Tarn of Newton (Import)
