These three will be having their second set of vaccinations this weekend, then next weekend it is off to the vet for their neuter ops in readiness for their new homes.
Now two weeks old, Poppy’s kittens are looking fat and round! As always with kittens from this girl, they have grubby faces, but that will go in time as they mature.
We are pretty sure on colours, and here they are now.
We had a great day at the double show at Wood Green, Huntingdon, with the young girls.
Rosie (Alisika Pascali) our beautiful cream shaded and white kitten had 1st and Best of Breed in her kitten class in both shows.
Renee (Lucifern Lalique) was first in both shows, and gained two Championship Certificates in her first adult show at just a few days over the nine months. She was beaten to Best of Breed by her stablemate Lucifern Red Devil.
And wow… what a day for Denise Williams with Mabalakat Red Hot Chilipepper (Chili) who wasnt just 1st and Best of Breed in both shows, but went on to be Best Semi Longhair Kitten in the Eastern Counties show!
Still rather difficult to tell colour, but one high white silver tabby boy; one tabby boy with white who could be either silver or brown; One or possibly two, tortie tabby with white girls; 1 or 2 silver tortie tabby with white girls; 1 tortie smoke with white girl.
Pleased to say Poppy’s kittens are here with us. 6 in total, 4 girls and 2 boys. The girls are of course all tortie, but it is too early to say whether tortie tabby, silver tortie tabby, solid tortie, or tortie smoke….. if we are lucky, might have one of each! The two boys are both tabby. They could be either brown or silver, one is low white (bib and paws) the other is very high white. If either are silver they will not be available, as we have waited for four litters for a silver tabby male from this mating!
Photos will follow later.
Menemsha’s babies are now 6 weeks, and will shortly be moving into the kitten room, where we will hopefully get better pictures of them. The last of Izzy’s babies leaves us today for her new life, and Poppy will be shortly be moving into the bedroom to await her new arrivals (due around June 26th). Poppy and George always give us such stunning babies that we are awaiting the arrival with excitement (and keeping fingers crossed for a beautiful silver tabby boy this time – the one colour this mating has yet to give us).
Here are Menemsha’s babies (and mum). The two boys are optioned, the girl is still under assessment and may well stay.
Menemsha gave birth on May 2nd, and sadly one kitten didnt make it. But these three are rapidly turning into little barrels. Mum is VERY protective, so we had to quickly pop in and use the flash. They are 10 days old in the photos. The red tabby boy and the brown tabby boy are both reserved. The tortie girl is under assessment, and will possibly stay here with us.
