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.
TORTIE SMOKE AND WHITE GIRL (under assessment, may be available later)
TORTIE TABBY AND WHITE GIRL NO. 1 (under assessment, may be available later)
TORTIE TABBY AND WHITE GIRL NO. 2 (under assessment, may be available later)
SILVER TORTIE TABBY AND WHITE GIRL (under assessment, may be available later)
SILVER TABBY AND HIGH WHITE BOY (Available)
SILVER TABBY AND WHITE BOY (under observation as possible show neuter)
We had a great day at the double show at Wood Green, Huntingdon, with the young girls.
Rosie (Alisika Pascali) our beautiful cream shaded and white kitten had 1st and Best of Breed in her kitten class in both shows.
Renee (Lucifern Lalique) was first in both shows, and gained two Championship Certificates in her first adult show at just a few days over the nine months. She was beaten to Best of Breed by her stablemate Lucifern Red Devil.
And wow… what a day for Denise Williams with Mabalakat Red Hot Chilipepper (Chili) who wasnt just 1st and Best of Breed in both shows, but went on to be Best Semi Longhair Kitten in the Eastern Counties show!
Still rather difficult to tell colour, but one high white silver tabby boy; one tabby boy with white who could be either silver or brown; One or possibly two, tortie tabby with white girls; 1 or 2 silver tortie tabby with white girls; 1 tortie smoke with white girl.
Pleased to say Poppy’s kittens are here with us. 6 in total, 4 girls and 2 boys. The girls are of course all tortie, but it is too early to say whether tortie tabby, silver tortie tabby, solid tortie, or tortie smoke….. if we are lucky, might have one of each! The two boys are both tabby. They could be either brown or silver, one is low white (bib and paws) the other is very high white. If either are silver they will not be available, as we have waited for four litters for a silver tabby male from this mating!
