One from last year...

This is Martha, who was one of last year’s kittens from Izzy and George.  We have just repeated the mating but would caution by saying if there is another like this…. she will be staying here!

Thanks to Alix for the lovely photos.

Lalique’s litter to Walter is due around 9th -10th April.

Pascali’s litter to Walter is due around 21st April. (not confirmed).

We have started a small waiting list for these litters, but it is already fairly full, and of course, no idea how many kittens will be here.  Further litters are planned this year, (scroll down for plans and possible colour combinations).  Feel free to contact us if you would like to be considered for a kitten and are happy to wait until later this summer.

Kitten season is imminent!

Some photos of previous kittens we have bred

It is always lovely to receive photos from owners of their kittens as they grow up.  Here are a few we have received recently….with grateful thanks to their proud owners.

Show news 24th Feb

A nice local show this time, at Warwick Show ground so only around half an hour’s drive for the Coventry and Leicester Club show.  Pleased to say Menemsha won her third Imperial certificate (only two to go now!) and Best of Breed.  She was also up for Best in Show, but was beaten by the cat that won the Reserve Imperial – go figure!

Satchmo won his open too, and also Best of Breed, and as usual, charmed all the judges with his laid back personality.

Sadly our Polish lady, Zeta, really, really, hated it!  She curled up in a small ball under her blanket and refused to come out all day, so her wishes have been noted and we wont take her again.  A shame, as she is looking so lovely, but not all cats like being shown.  As we were taking Zeta, we left Jazz at home so her next outing will be as an adult, rather than a kitten.

Some photos here of the three kittens….

Next outing will be to TICA mid march, when we will take Izzy out to try to gain more points towards her Double Grand Champion certificate.
