All my cats are GCCF and/or TICA Registered Active and I am very proud to say they are all PKD (Polycystic kidney disease) normal/clear, and ALPS (British Shorthair Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome) normal/clear (lab tested).
All my babies are a part of the family, and live indoors roaming where they wish. They are not kept in cages, nor are they left to defend for themselves outside. This is the case for my Bear too. I am very lucky that my boy does not spray, and therefore he can be kept indoor with the family.
Anyone looking to give a home to any of their offspring I expect nothing less. Only the best will do for my fur babies.
Bear by name, Bear by nature. He is my very handsome boy whom I'm very proud to own. His father is a German import and his mother was imported from Ukraine, both of which have stunning pedigrees with many Champions, Grand, European, and International Champions.
When he came to us he was already named and registered as 'Charliee', but we gave him 'Bear' as his pet name. Bear is definitely my boy; wherever I am he's there by my side. He is a real chunky charmer and has produced stunning kittens! I couldn't wish for a better stud.
When he took part in his first show (July 2018) he was the Best in Breed Class Winner! He also gained his first CC, so was well on his way to becoming a Champion himself! However he soon bored of the show bench and it didn't seem fair carrying on when he clearly wasn't enjoying it.
Update: Bear is now retired but will remain with me and continue being the king of his castle.
KITTY MINAJ (ELORA)
Elora is actually auntie to Bella and was not planned either, but she caught my eye when I were visiting a breeder friend.
She has a lovely light blue coat and even though she's still a kitten herself I can see she has potentially good mothering skills as she has taken our newest addition, Aviva, under her wing and babies her.
She is very playful and funnily cheeky. She also loves to curl up close next to you for a nap.
Elora gets on well with all other cats and kittens, new and old, and has been a delightful new addition.
This beauty is our newest addition all the way from Northern Ireland, and what a delight she is.
I chose the name Aviva, which means springtime, seen as she was born in the spring.
I took her to her first show at the weekend (27th August 22) and given she is not quite 15 weeks old she took on the kitten class and won Breed Class First, and Best of Breed. She was an absolute delight and loved every minute of the attention. Looking forward to taking her to more shows as she develops into an adult.
Aviva is very confident and affectionate, and loves to curl up on your lap.
Anoushka (meaning the chosen one), and Nemesis (meaning a rival) is my home bred girl I decided to keep from Bella and Bear's last mating.
She is a little cutie with a proper girly face.
I will update as she develops.
Nevaeh (Heaven spelt backwards) is a lilac British Shorthair with lovely round eyes. She is registered with both TICA and GCCF.
Nevaeh is the more petite of my girls and has a lovely personality with just the right amount of sass. She is also proving herself to be a great mum and has become a valued member of the house.
She has recently become a first time mother to Bear's last ever litter so it's a bittersweet moment.
She is doing a fantastic job and their kittens are beauties.
DUSTY BLUEBIRD (BELLA)
At the time I was not planning on any more girls joining us, but a friend of mine showed me Bella and I fell in love. I just had to have her.
She's extremley affectionate, to the point I'm tempted to nickname her boomerang :-)
Bella is Grand Champion sired and joined us at eight months old therefore she was already named. With her laid back personality it didn't take long for her to be introduced and settled in with my clowder. She's an all round gorgeous chunky girl that lets you do anything you like and gets on well with the whole 2 and 4 legged family.
