About him

One of the key things that Animal Stars are looking for is a cat that carries his tail up.  When Marianne Myburgh saw his as kitten, she said: "I want him! He has the Magic Tail!". She named him Magic Maker. He did his first solo commercial photo shoot as kitten. In 2011 he played, true to his name, the walking and tail parts for both the Neslte Purina Gourmet Europe and UK TV commercials. 

He has a lovely, sweet, easy-going nature. 

As he matured, he also became a stunning show cat and obtained SA Tripple Grand Premier with CASA just before he left permanently to the USA to become part of a movie cast.

He loved the baby Burmese kitten Burlamien Andenika!
