Izzy's babies now 9 weeks

These kittens have had their first health check (passed with flying colours) and vaccinations.  They are growing rapidly.Our ultra affectionate and friendly hand reared kitten (still with working name of “Shrimpy”) is available.  Parker is now reserved for Susie and Chris.  The female is still being run on with a view to staying here with us.  We havent thought of a

Pascali's babies are a week old (sneak preview!)

Still a few decisions to make on colour, but here are Pascali’s babies.  There are 3 boys that we know MUST be red (dad doesnt carry dilute) but could be red silver tabby/red silver shaded/red smoke…. time will undoubtedly tell, but for the moment, our three “Mr Pinks” are almost impossible to tell apart!

Shrimpy is now available.  He has, along with his brother and sister, been to the vet today (Wednesday) for his first health check and vaccinations.  He can now meet new people.  He will be ready to leave home, once full vaccinations are done, and his neuter op too, around 12th August.  If interested, then either call or email.

See details by scrolling down.  Zeta is in need of a new home.  She is spayed and vaccinated, and ready to go.  There will be a rehoming fee, but this will be a lot less than the cost of a kitten.  She is a stunning girl and needs a knowledgeable home.  More details are below, and Im happy for anyone interested to email or call me for a chat about her.

After keeping us waiting, Pascali finally delivered her kittens this morning.  She has four males, and two females.  The two girls are both torties of some kind, one certainly has high white, and looks to be calico colouration.  Too soon to know if solid, smoke or silver.  The boys are all red of some kind, but it will be a while before we know if we have solids, tabbies, red silver, shaded, or smoke!  All we can currently say is one has more white than the others!  Photos will follow in due course.

 

Updates on kittens (2)

Lalique’s two had visits from their new “parents” last weekend, and tomorrow (Friday) they go in to be neutered.  Not long now before they will be leaving us.

This week, it has all been about keeping everyone cool!  Izzy’s three are growing quickly now, and are now 8 weeks old.  The pics were taken last weekend.

We are looking for a VERY special home for Zeta.  She is a huge and very beautiful tortie tabby that we imported from Poland at the end of last year, for breeding and showing.  Unfortunately she has proved unsuitable for both and has now been spayed and is ready to be homed.  She is extremely friendly and loving, but does suffer from being rather over-enthusiastic in her play at times.  She needs an experienced owner, who can give her the time she needs to settle down and feel secure.  We feel that she would be better in a home with no children, no other pets at least initially, though a friend later on would be good for her, and owners who are there most of the time.  Safe outside access would be good for her, as well,  to help burn off some of her high-octane energy!  She is easy to groom (loves it!), and loves to snuggle on your lap, with her head curled up into your armpit.  But once or twice a day, she has bursts of madness, dashing around, coming back to play (but not always gently), when she needs reassurance, firmness, and distraction!  With time, as she feels more secure with you, this behaviour should quieten down (Liken it to an adopted child, who is “trying the boundaries”.)  I’m happy to discuss her needs more fully with anyone who is interested but the criteria I have mentioned (no children, no pets, lots of people contact and hopefully outside access) are non-negotiable I’m afraid.

Zeta is only just one year old, and although there will be a homing fee, this will be much less than purchasing a kitten or young cat, as finding the right home for her is essential.  It would be a shame if she has to stay in our breeding cattery rather than in the pet home that she deserves.  If you think this could be you, please do get in touch, either via email, or phone, to discuss further, and arrange a visit to meet her.

Kitten updates continued

Izzy’s babies from George are enjoying their large room.  What a difference a week and a few square meals can make!  The little chap (shrimpy) who was being hand fed is now tucking in with gusto and rapidly catching up his siblings – at this rate, he will soon overtake them!
