Pascali and Menemsha will be looking for their new permanent homes in January

As we continue our move to retirement from breeding, two more girls were spayed before Christmas.  These will be ready for new homes in January onwards.  Im looking for homes where they will be the only cat.

Pascali is a cream smoke with white.  She is an affectionate girl, but on her own terms.  She can be quite dominant and likes to hang on to hands a bit longer than maybe you would like, so it is best to play with “distance” toys, such as fishing rod type or wand type toys.  She is intelligent, and friendly but would suit a home without children who I doubt she would tolerate.

Aged 3 years, she is vaccinated to date, neutered, healthy, and clear of all known genetic illnesses.  Unfortunately, she made it quite clear from kittenhood that she would not tolerate the stress of a show hall, so although a wonderful example of her colour and type, she cannot be shown.

Menemsha is a solid tortie and white.  She is aged five.  A hugely friendly and happy girl, she needs a loving home that could possibly include older children.  She will tolerate any amount of handling and is a very easy girl to groom.  When in full coat she needs daily combing, otherwise she can easily matt, but there is no problem with this – she adores being groomed!  Healthy, with none of the genetic illnesses affecting maine coons.  She can be rather bossy with other cats, and also quite greedy, so needs to be monitored with her food intake.  Menemsha showed very well, and is one certificate short of being an Imperial Grand Champion.  So could possibly be shown as a neuter, but I would warn that she isnt a good traveller.

If you are interested in homing either of these girls, then do get in touch.  I would far rather that they were in loving homes than in a cattery for the rest of their lives.  There is a fee for each of £250.  Unfortunately, they cannot go together as they really dont get on!


Pascali is now available for rehoming

As part of our move towards retiring from breeding, we have now had Pascali spayed.  It will be Menemsha’s turn next week.

Pascali is a simply beautiful cream smoke with white girl.  She is aged three years old, and is vaccinated to date.  She is friendly, but does sometimes play a little rough, so would not be suitable for homes with children.  She can be very dominant with other cats, so ideally would be better in a home without other pets.  She needs a confident owner, who is willing to spend time with her, as she loves being on your lap and fussed or combed, but who recognises when she is becoming over excited and to use distraction play at such times.

There will be a charge for Pascali, but we are more interested to find her the right home for her.  She is recovering well from her spay, and I am looking to home her after Christmas, if possible, to avoid her joining a new home at a busy time.  If you think you might be the right person then please do get in touch.

show updates

We have now done our final shows for the year.  After her success at the Supreme, Jazz went out to try in Olympians at the Yorkshire double show, and was placed as Reserve, with a wonderful write up from her judge.  She also gained BOB in one show.  Our new baby, Eclipse, was out for the first time, and gained 1st and BOB in one show, and 2nd in the other, but was placed high in all her side classes.  She is showing great promise, and we are pleased with her, she dealt with the travel and handling really well, considering she is only just 15 weeks old.

At the National double show in December, Jazz was awarded her first Olympian certificate, and both Best of Breeds.  She also did really well in side classes.  Satchmo didnt achieve a certificate, only gaining a third place in the Oly class, but did get both Best of Breeds, and also had some excellent side class results.  He still hates travelling, and has shed quite a bit of his ruff so we are not entering him for a while, to give him a break.  Eclipse again did us proud, with both 1st and BOBs and excellent side classes too.  I have high hopes for this little girl.
