Countdown begins....

We have this week started to reduce our numbers in order to retire early next year from breeding.  This week, Poppy and Lalique have been spayed.  We will give them both time to recover and they will be ready for rehoming towards the end of September.  Poppy is a large black smoke and white girl, aged 7 and Lalique is a tortie tabby aged 2 and a half.  Both are gentle, affectionate girls who would benefit from being the only cat in quiet homes.  Lalique is slightly nervous until she knows you, but would soon settle down, Poppy is a real in-your-face lap cat, but does have minor health issues, which Im happy to discuss with anyone interested in offering her a home.  Both cats are sporting short coats after having kittens earlier this year, but these will grow back in during the next few months.  There will be a charge for Lalique, but we would like a donation to the MCBS rescue and rehoming fund for Poppy.  These are much loved cats and we will be wanting just the right home for each of them.  Please email initially if interested.

Such an overcast day, I tried to set up a white blanket to get better photos, but they preferred the safety of their nest!  All doing really well, and some very good weights.  Menemsha is such a good mother.  She is thankfully, happier for me to touch and hold them now.

Photos below.  None of the kittens is currently available.

Show news.

Long drive to Southampton yesterday for 3 counties show.  Nothing for Satchmo in a massive Olympian class of 17 stunning male neuters, though he did get Best of Breed, and two 2nds in side classes.  But Izzy (Northern Lights) did us proud, with her second Olympian certificate, Best of Breed, and a red card day (firsts in all side classes).  We are very proud of this young lady.  Hopefully, we will again be showing Jazz soon, as she has now regained a decent coat after kittening at the beginning of the year (showing breeding cats is a “long game” as they tend to dramatically lose condition after kittening!).  She will be going for her remaining Imperial certificates.  As you can see, Satchmo was very laid back, but we couldnt open pen to take pics of izzy as she just wants to come out and cuddle!
