This is Tallahassee, who we have decided to find a pet home for. She is a beautiful blue tortie smoke and white who we had high hopes for both in showing and breeding. Although she was made up to Champion, she really wasn’t happy being shown, so we retired her from the show bench as we would never show a cat that hated it. Since then, we have put her with both our boys several times, but she has not become pregnant – so it looks like she doesn’t want to have babies either!
Rather than keep her in a breeding group, we feel she would be happier in a home situation as a family pet. She is a delightful girl who loves attention, and is easy to groom. She is not used to children, so would suit a home without them best. She can be a little grumpy with other cats, so would be better being the only diva in the house. She can be a little shy until she knows you, but loves treats and is a healthy girl. All her vaccination boosters were done this month, as was her worming/flea treatments, and she will, of course, be spayed prior to being homed (due in next week or so). She could be ready to leave us from mid September. ~She is negative for the HCM gene by parentage (both parents negative).
If you think you might be interested in offering Tally a home, then please do drop us an email initially . There will be a homing fee for this young girl.
Glori had her litter on Thursday. As expected, only two kittens, but sadly, one didnt make it. The remaining kitten is doing well and is a beautifully marked Black smoke with white male. He has white bib, paws and a lovely white muzzle and blaze. Mum and singleton are both doing well. Photos will follow later.
Izzy (GR CH Mabalakat Northern Lights) achieved her 3rd Imperial certificate at the 3 counties show at the weekend. She also got BOB and was a close runner up for BIS SLH adult, lost out due to her summer coat. Lalique came second to a much more mature girl, which is fine, she is only just an adult herself but Pascali made it quite clear that she really doesnt like showing, so will be retired from the show bench, and will just have to look beautiful here, and have lovely babies. A shame when this happens, particularly as her cream shaded pattern is one of the best we have ever seen, but I wouldnt ever show a cat that hates it so much as it wouldnt be fair.
After a scan at the vet’s we can announce that Walter’s first ever kittens are on their way! It would appear that Glori (CH Mabalakat Gloriana) is due around 23rd August with what looks to be 2 kittens.
We can never be sure of colours at this point (and sometimes for some time after birth!) but possibles are (all most likely with white):
Brown tabby, Silver tabby, Black, Black smoke, (both sexes)
We will update as soon as we have details. Last time, she had two, that were born 3 days apart…… so we may be a while before we can post what she has, but as these are Walter’s first babies, we are excited to see what they are like.
Photos of Poppy’s babies hopefully tomorrow now they are 6 weeks.
Probably the messiest litter Ive had in a long while… they seem to enjoy swimming in their food, rather than eating it, but we are getting there! Please excuse messy faces, this is the best they have looked in 2 weeks (hence no photos for a while!) We are still assessing this litter, but some of these kittens will be made available later, so if interested, please do let us know.
