Proud mummy Aurora

10th January 2017

First than all Happy New Year everyone!!!

We didnt have an update since August,so many things happened since then although life in here is sometimes very hectic and then we need a looooong update.

Our "Bigotitos" (Tommen) made himself proud and us, of course and became Champion and then took a little break while he recovers his fabulous condition, being all ok as he qualifed during the year he will come with his daughter to the Winners Show.

Yes, you guessed, we couldnt resist to keep one of the daughters of Kira and Tommen and she will soon appear together with the rest of the girls.

In October we went to the World Show in Vienna, but as i was not feeling my best i decided not to take the cats this year, but we never come back from Vienna without a souvenir that flight from Spain with his breeder. We welcome from Spain (yes, another from Spain :)) Rockateur Nabatea*ES, our new kid in the block that give our breeding a touch of Boomer and us the satisfaction of sharing our lifes with Rocko.
I know we didnt need another boy, but we needed Rocko and sometimes you have to allow the heart win the head!!.
Rocko did us all proud in Vienna and got Ex1(5) and almost the BIV, it was so much emotion, but in the end went for the gorgeous female kitten. In December he came to his first UK show and he got the nomination.

After we came back Lady Sybil pass to be another happy neuter, as with the "bionic" leg she has develop a bit of arthritas and is not in her best interest a pregnancy, that was another reason her grandaughter Bournvita stayed here. I must admit it was a bit sad but always we try to do what is in the best interest of the cats.

All of our kittens left us by the time November arrived and this is always a mixed of feelings between sad as your little babies left the nest, but so happy as they all have fab new families and you enjoy watching the photos, videos of their antics at their new homes. Of course, this time we had Bournvita and Rocko to enjoy extended kittenhood life all for ourselfs LOL

In December we attend to the last show of the year and Charming got another BIV-Total (number 9) and another nom (number 8), and that surely is very nice for a cat that competes in the most complicated and populated group,he also became International Champion at 16 months old and got also 3 Best in Shows. This year he will come to the Winners Show with the dream of repeat last year achievement as he was Best in Show kitten :).
After this he will be concentrate in daddyhood and probably will take a break,as at the moment he has nothing else in mind so we are confident he will be good at this :)

The plan is his brother Robin will take kindly Charming space. Robin is being chipped so he is not (thank goodness) with girls in mind.

Hola also became since August Supreme Premier achieving the highest title for a neuter in Fife and she will come to some shows here and there as she is a joy to show and to try the difficult Distinguised Show Merit.

We have a lot of plans and projects this year, but we all know with cats we not always agree.
We are 99'9% sure we are expecting kittens for the very end of January beginning of Febrary, or that, or she ate something large and is still digesting :). We will put more info when we have confirmed the lovely news.
As always we are very exciting of welcoming a new litter.

We will also try to update a bit more the page and more frequently and of course the new additions will soon appear in here.

10th August 2016

Well... we have some very long awaited kittens :)

On the 24th of May Boo gave birth 3 lovely kittens of Amadeus, our Jungle Book litter.

On the 13th of July Kira had 5 lovely kittens with Tommen, the first litter of both that we have called "Nighty Night Litter" as during the pregnancy Kira had to have Horlicks every night to the point Sue used to give her own mug.

On the 30th of July we welcomed 3 kittens of Kylie and Dylan, the first litter of Dylan in our cattery. These are our "The Magicians Litter"

More info will be on the website soon. While this we enjoy seeing them growing and their fabulous antics.
On the June show GB*Nandinakatts Prince Charming became Champion at 11 months old, he also got his first CACIB on Sunday,BIV-Total and the nomination.
This weekend we will be attending Colchester Show so if you are around please come a say hello:).

14th May 2016

Bit by bit the website is finally getting some updates, thank you to our new webmaster Nuno ;)
Last weekend we were in Edenbrige show, we spend a lovely weekend with friends and the cats once again made us proud. I spend a busy weekend being steward for an Spanish judge, and I had the opportunity of learn a bit more.
GIP & GIC GB*Nandinakatts Mr Tiggy Winkle got her CAPs both days and BIV on the Saturday and lost both day nomination agains a lovely Maine Coon.
GB*Nandinakatts Prince Charming was 10 months on the Saturday and he became an "adult" and he managed two CAC and on the Sunday he got the BIV-Total of and incredible group IV and also the nomination!
Tommen Baratheon Tree House*ES was Ex1 both days in his second show, and the nomination on the Saturday of an incredible panel.
Thank you my fab friends of look after my cats while I couldn't.
It was fantastic see other cats from this cattery with their owners and the offspring of Amadeus with some of my friends which also did well, so happy happy granny ;)
Best part of shows is the company and all the cuddles.

Being all ok we are expecting the patter of tiny paws for the beginning of June, we will put more info when they all arrive as this year with one things and other, plans are going exactly wrong lol. We also will be updating our plans soon.

 

16th April 2016

Finally some news, I’ve being meaning to do this for ages, but you never find the time.
In the end of January we attended to the National Winner Show and we are so happy and proud that Prince Charming was Best in show kitten and overall best kitten, also Hola was nominated and both got the BIV.


Just after the Winners Show we welcomed our new Spanish boy Tommen Baratheon Tree House*ES which have a lot of cats in the pedigree we have lost in our breeding programme and we are so happy to recovered. A very sweet nature and happy boy who has integrated very well and hopefully soon will have his page. We could be more grateful to Lucia and Fabio for allow Tommen be part of our family.


  • On the beginning of February, we welcomed our first ever litter of a singleton, via C-section and we named him Han Solo. A very special and adorable kitten.
    Also we being doing some shows and the cats are made us proud and of course we enjoy the company of our beloved friends and the much needed laugh.
    We have some exciting plans, but it is a bit earlier to disclose if they are materializing yet, so hopefully I will be back later with that.

3rd November 2015

Well, where to start…..
I try to summarize….
It is being a hard summer as in the end of July Boomer left us after a short period of illness and losing weight. This was devastating to us and a month later we learn that what look like a Lymphoma was in fact dry FIP mimicking cancer in all his organs. His post-mortem was carried out at The Royal Veterinary College and revealed that his offspring is totally safe as this kind of illness is random and not genetic.
We miss our little bit of Spanish sunshine a lot, but he lives on in his daughters and sons.
In the beginning of July the last present of Boomer was born in our cattery, we didn’t know then how extra special these babies were going to be.
The proud mum is Queeny (GB*Nandinakatts Queen Elizabeth) and we name this litter Once Upon a Time as we love the series, but more important the name seemed to fit perfectly the occasion. Queeny gave birth to no identical twins and despite she retained the placenta for 6 days and almost had to have a C-section to get rid of it all she was fine and she is a fabulous mother as in her previous litter.
Time soon flies and two of the kittens have already started their new adventure in their new homes.
Captain Killian Hook and Belle are now part of two breeding programmes in the UK and we are happy to announce that Prince Charming and Princess Aurora will stay with us to continue the lines of their precious daddy.

During the summer we attended some shows and Hola did us proud with 5 Best in Shows in a row!!!

We have just come back from the Fife World Show that took part in Malmo (Sweden), and I was pleased to go back, three years later of my first visit.
We had a lovely time and despite that in the last minute Juliet was calling and we decided not to give her a long trip like that.
Nandinakatts Mrs Tiggy Winkle won her certificate in an amazing competition of group 4!!!
Nandinakatts Tiramisu, with her owner Liz, was the youngest in her beautiful class and was down to the last 2 with fab comments.
Both behave fab and did us very proud!!!

We didn’t come from Malmo with empty hands as we collected the handsome DK*Dan-Queen Bent (Denmark), who will be part of our breeding programmes and of course our families. We asked the breeder of Bent back in May as new lines give some variety and new genes to any programme, but after what is happened this is very good news.
Many thanks to Dorthe Ellgaard and her family for trust this handsome boy with us, he will be adored by all of us and give our breeding programme some wonderful things

All Ben and Jerry’s litter are now happily in their new homes, Clever Cookie is doing very well in GCCF and mum Shakira is now a happy neuter, she gave us fabulous litters and is time for her to retire of the breeding, of course she is still here (watching what I am typing). We are enjoying for a bit longer of the company of Cherry Garcia ;)

During the summer also nice things happened related with our cattery GB*Nandinakatts Lady Mary became International Champion and GB*Nandinakatts Lady Edith Grand Champion
GB* Nandinakatts Georgina and Jingle Belle become mums with unexpected dad GB*Nandinakatts Chocolate Fudge Cake ”Choco” that is as relaxed and happy as before of the big events :-).

We got some exciting new plans for the New Year and we will add more info soon.
Hopefully bit by bit we will be adding photos and news so the page is more up to date

A proud mummy.

15th October 2014

Last Saturday, a little bit earlier than we expected we had the pleasure of welcome to the world a litter between Boomer and Pudding, the first for both and I know we are biased, but a very beautiful one ;-)
They arrived after the sad day of Dave having to go back into hospital, so they were a little bit of good news for us.


Missisipi Mud Pie wanted to say hello ;-)
This litter has the first solid torties of this cattery.
More info coming soon.

29th September 2014

Where to start?.... Our Sybil broke her back leg on the 3rd of September and went to a very big operation with an specialist that correct a very nasty spiral fracture of the tibia. She spent a few days in hospital before coming home. She is being a little star as she has to be on cage rest for 5 weeks and is doing brilliant. Last week she was a few days back in hospital due to a skin infection that the cast made to her but is back with us at home
now :-).

Our little star recovering ;)
We are not out of the woods until the end of 5 weeks, when she will have an x-ray too be sure all is healed well,but she is doing great.

Dave was also back in hospital for a week as a result of an unecessary antibiotics he was given causing damage to his kidneys. This set him back a bit but he is also back home recovering well :-).

Everybody else of our furry friends are ok.
We attended to a cat show in Coventry on the 6th of September thanx to the help of Liz and Julie as without them I wouldn't be able to make it.The result were:
Pr & GIC GB*Nandinakatts Mrs Tiggy Winkle gain her first CAPIB and the Nom with a vote in the panel

GB*Nandinakatts Kira Nerys Ex 3
GB*Nandinakatts Worf Ex1, Nom...
GB*Nandinakatts Baby Love Ex1, Nom

And at last but not least we are expecting some new arrivals around 15th of October being all ok and I will try to put some photos when they are here and give you all the relevant information ;-)

22th August 2014

Due to Dave having had a stroke we are unable to update the website as much as we would like, however please feel free to contact us if you are interested in our plans ;-).

The majority opf our kittens are already enjoying life with their new families, we got a few that will move a bit late so we are enjoying their sweet company for a bit longer.

In the middle of July we had a lovely weekend in Moulton international cat show, were I took a few extra cats with me as I was asked to and we were only local. Also we tooks the lovely Bumble and Apple while my dear friend Kiri were attending to a weeding, and she joined us on Sunday .
A bit "mental" but enjoyable .

IC Nandinakatts Kylie got her first point towards Grand on Saturday and BIV-Total of a gorgeous group 4. On Sunday she stayed at home.

I will be doing some updates of what I am able to do and posting some pictures here and there in Facebook.

19th June 2014

All of our kittens are now reserved however there may be some good news towards August, further details to follow soon.

Last Saturday we were in Lutterworth International Cat Show where it was the first outgoing of Hola (GIC GB*Nandinakatts Mrs Tiggy Winkle) as a neuter gaining her first CAP. Lance and Olivia both got their CAPs and Boomer got his 3rd CAC becoming Champion at the tender age of 11 months ;-).

New pics of Boomer, Freddy and Seely Booth.

Due to the recent riots on the shed roof in the side garden we had to re-felt it this week. While we were at it we turned the shed round by 90 degrees allowing me to see whats going on from the bedroom window. I can now deploy robocat at a moments notice to break up any further attemps at a pussycat coup happening. Unfortunately in the process poor old Amadeus has lost his access to watch the birds on the front lawn for a few days. Needless to say he has been having protest pee's everywhere else in the meantime. Anyway I am having a few days in Holland so he will just have to put up with it ( maybe I will be bringing him back something to play with).

There's two missing somewhere??

25th April

Now back home and all settled after a lovely show in Apeldoorn where
Boomer Nabatea*Es did his last show as a junior with two EX1
and GIP & IC GB*Nandinakatts Squirrel Nutkin got the CAPs both days, BIV on Sunday and was Nominated both days.
They behaved wonderfully as always and did us proud.
We missed Gary a lot as unfortunately the car broke down in the hotel car park and we were already inside of Eurotunnel but is just one of those things.
It was a lovely, huge show and we hope repeat the experience next year.

If anyone ever visits Apeldorn we can highly recommend the Van Der Valk Hotel. Only a tiny bit more expensive than the cheapest hotels in that area but well worth the extra. It was definately a 5 star experience in all respects.

We proudly present our litter 20 "The Fab Four" and "The Star Trek" Litter 21.

 

Tempy being the cuddly mum that she is.

Finally a few pics for our avid fans.

Lady Grantham (Downton Abbey Litter) courtesy of her owners. Simples Litter, Love Birds litter, Olivia, Lance and Pudding.

The Love Birds Litter are all happily settle into their new homes and we want to wish them the best in their new lives. Take on Me and Apple remain in co-ownership with us and there will be soon some photos in their new houses and we will sort out their new pages :-).

We are happy to announce we are expecting kittens mid April (being all ok) from Tempy and Sybil, keep you posted in due course. More info can be found in our planned litters.

Olivia (IC & GIP GB*Nandinakatts Squirrel Nutkin) became 2nd Best Female Neuter in Category II and also Best Norwegian Forest Cat Neuter 2013 in the Annual Points awards of the Show Year of Felis Britannica.

Well the weather has changed for the better so this means more work in the garden. Almost finished another pen so we have room to give the entire boys some fresh air during the summer months and then there's a few roof repairs to do when I can get at them ready for next winter's onslaught.

We went to a show in Belgium in Tienen (1st and 2nd of March) and did very well considering the competition:
IC Be*Gilgad’s Purple Haze was Ex4(5) on Saturday and Ex3(3) Sunday. I have to admit he has lost his lovely condition and I was pushing a bit with this show as perhaps a bit young to his high title but never less he enjoyed his little holidays and travel so well as always.
Boomer Nabatea*ES did his first show as a junior and did Ex1 and BIV-J both days and got a very difficult nom on Saturday where he got 3 votes in the panel! and the so very beautiful winning girl got 4
IP & IC GB*Nandinakatts Squirrel Nutkin got her certificate both days and the nomination having 4 votes on Saturday (losing by one) and a draw on Sunday where the deciding judge went for the other beautiful girl. She also became Grand International Premier on Saturday.
IP GB*Nandinakatts Lance Sweets got his certificate both days of 2 cats and became on Sunday Grand International Premier.
At last but not least CH GB*Nandinakatts Seeley Booth got both days his certificate and became International Champion. Needless to say we are very proud of them all.

Next show is in Wolverhampton this weekend I think then after that we are off to Appledorn in Holland in April. It will be nice to see all our European friends there again.

Ollie became GIP in Belgium Show.

Lance became GIP in Belgium show.

23rd February 2014

Hellooooo!! I want in on this pic too!

Well another week gone by, soon be spring.

Its been a busy week with visits to the vet every day for one thing after another. Three Love Birds reacted badly to the second vaccine but seem to be recovering now except the latest one which will take a few days. Today is a little better but we think another couple of days before we see significant improvement. Her new mummy is coming to see her today so that will speed the recovery hopefully.

I have been busy trying to complete ons side of the new pen while the weather has been kind. I thought I had done this yesterday but......... Well the story is Hola lost all her kittens as you may know and was neutered at the same time as having the C-Section. This confused her totally and therefore she was living in my bedroom to recover with the aid of 3 pairs of socks scented up from Queenies kittens. This was working ok until Hola decided she wanted out of the room so we let her choose. This wwas ok until she met the other kittens,queens and others etc. A few small fight ensued so she had to go back to the room. However she was determined to come out again and after 2 night without much sleep I deemed it necessary to send her to the new pen with birthing box and socks :)

This was late last night and then we all went to bed. The next thing I know is someone jumping on the bed and who was it? Yes you guessed it, Hola. In the space of a few minutes Houdini had escaped the pen and come back into the house. Well I left her roaming free and she behaved all night so things may be looking up. The story will continue next time.

Thre are new pics of Lady Mary and Lord Grantham courtesy of their owners. Alexandr, Maiya and Sergei (simples litter), Take on me, Baby Love, Birdy and Apple (Love Birds Litter).

14th February 2014

Sometimes breeding is so sad, our beloved Hola (GIC GB*Nandinakatts Mrs Tiggy Winkle) was expecting kittens for the end of February, we realized she was not putting much weight at all and of course our vets checked that and confirmed that it was not good news, in the beginning she was having the operation in a couple of days but then she deteriorated very fast and she had an emergency c sec the following morning and she was also spayed as of course her health is our priority.
She is coming around now (a huge thank you to all the staff at Northlands Veterinary Hospital especially to Catherine Corden-Parry who did the op) The sad part is there were 5 little angels that didn't make it but mummy is doing well.

Finally I have made some progress in the new pen. Insulation is now complete and the internal pen construction is coming along nicely. Its now so warm in there with just a small heater I may move in myself!!

Life in Nandinakatts continues as normal now.

Michelin Star Catering? Judgement is still out!

Also several other friends arrived to see what all the fuss was about and thanks to Kiri for coming down from the wastes of Derbyshire to do the vetting in.

A nice surprise too was the appearance of future Norwegian lover "Joseph" the new arrival to our local vet's household:)

We had a bit of surprise on Sunday as Missy decided that the kittens were being “toasted” enough and have them at day 60 (just as well we didn’t go to the show in Holland).
After what it seemed the longest birth ever between kittens we proudly present our "Litter Simples" with 3 lovely, healthy kittens that if were left more in the "oven" would be enormous :-).
It is always a privilege be part of the birth of our girls.

Our Love Birds Litter is doing fab, so sweets babies and we are very happy with their development ;-).

Boomer is very settle and happy and soon we'll be putting some new pictures.

Kittens are now 4 weeks old and totally adorable, they purr and pedal with just looking at them :)

Thanks for all your interest in this litter but the kittens are all on hold waiting for their prospective new owners to visit.

Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone that visits our site.

We are having a well deserved rest from shows until the winners show in January.

Even then it will be like a little holiday for us as its being held in our home town of Corby.

I suspect there will be more pics to look at in the next few days so keep your eyes peeled.

12th December 2013

Well, what an eventful weekend we have had in France. We were in Perigueaux at a cat/animal show.

See a short video here.

Well we were greeted by Cats, Dogs, Pidgeons, All sorts of birds, Rabbits, Pigs, Snakes and Fish plus numerous other animals in an outside tent just like a circus.

Not sure this was a good idea in light of spreading diseases!!!

Queenie's kittens are all putting on weight and are deveoping nicely. Clara will do pics as and when time and light conditions are in abundance.

Also we brought back our new boy "Boomer" from the show. He was being shown by our friends and his breeders, Carolina and Saul from Spain (Nabatea Cattery). We thank them very much for allowing us to have this stunning boy to add to our breeding programme.

20th November 2013

Well, our regular viewers must think we have emigrated to Mars. Apologies for taking so long to update but it has been a busy month with one thing or another what with preparations for and going to the World Show in Denmark.

The cats behaved very well and we are very proud of them.

BTW Before anyone comments, they are both with a harness on until I Photoshopped them!!

We also got to meet the first baby Sumatran Tiger born in Denmark in Aalborg Zoo.

The little fellows first venture outside @ 5 weeks old.

Sadly we missed the Polar Bears who went on their own vacation the day before we arrived:(

More pics and possibly a short video coming soon.

We are also happy to announce that if everything is alright at the end of the month we shall welcome a litter between Queeny and Freddie.

Lady Mary was in a show in Malaga, Spain and was Ex1, BIV 3-10 and NOM on Saturday and Ex1, NOM on Sunday. Thank you Carol and Saul for taking care of her so well.

Between now and Christmas we shall be busy with the Swanley show and also one in France we are attending in December.

All of our kittens except for Cupcake, who will move to Porugal at the end of the month are happily settled in their new homes.

Thank you all the owners that sent pics and we shall update their pages soon.

Sadly yesterday we got the news that Zak Addy was involved in an accident and passed away. RIP sweet boy.

After having 4 wonderful litters and being an excellent mother to all of them, Erin IC GB*Nandinakatts Sugababe is now a happy neuter. She will remain part of our family like all of our cats and perhaps will visit the show bench again when she is recovered.

6th October 2013

Yesterday Candy Crush left us and today has been the turn of Purple and Sweetie who are going together.

We went to the Coventry Show yesterday and despite a certain amount of confusion with one judge leading to a longer than expected day, all in all we all had a good time meeting a few old friends along the way.

At the show venue there were also two wedding parties and an abundance of extremely bright orange dresses adorning what we think must have been a dance troupe. It didn't matter if the sun was in or out when they turned up :)

Coventry Show Results: IC & Premier GB*Nandinakatts Squirrel Nutkin- CAPIB, Nom, BIS Female Neuter & BIS Neuter and became International Premier
Gildad's Purple Haze- CACIB

New pics of Candy Crush and Candy Crush 2 litters, Lance Sweets and Miss Tarty Pants and Gizmo.

We had our last visit for this year to Dr Fuentes and the lovely Lois and these are the results:

CH BE*Gilgad's Purple Haze- HCM Normal

GIC GB*Nandinakatts Mrs Tiggy Winkle-HCM Normal

CH GB*Nandinakatts Queen Elizabeth- HCM Normal

We are extremely happy as all of our current breeding cats and some of the neuters that have been used for breeding have normal heart scans and blood tests. This routine will be repeated next year except with the oldest ones that have been given the all clear now :)

Charlie the remaining pensioner has realised his soul mate isnt there anymore and is wandering round the garden looking everywhere for Maisy. On top of all that we had to give him a good combing this week as he is too old to be bothered with washing his coat anymore. Needless to say Clara and I are now the bad people who make the pain!! I think he feels better for it though.

We are happy to have been in the first Fife show in Scotland. The cats travelled very well although we had trouble with the hotel which has been reported to Booking.com in no uncertain terms. On the plus side the cats seemed to enjoy the show and gave us no trouble as usual either at the venue of in the hotel.

Pr & IC GB*Nandinakatts Squirrel Nutkin - 2 x Ex1, CAPIB, 1 Nom

Gilgad's Purple Haze - Saturday Ex1, CAC becoming Champion, Sunday took his first CACIB

GB*Nandinakatts Lance Sweets - Saturday Ex1, CAP becoming Premier, Sunday CAPIB

GIC GB*Nandinakatts Mrs Tiggy Winkle -2 x Ex1, CACs, 1 x NOM

The show was well organised and we are so happy we came back with two champions (but are they Scottish or English?) :)

 

15th August 2013

It's with a sad heart we report that Maisy, one of our "pensioners" was diagnosed with lumps on the lungs yesterday. Although there was treatment available we felt that due to her age we could not put her through all that traumer when there was no guarantee she would survive.

R.I.P. Maisy

Yesterday we scan more of ours

13th August 2013

13th March 2013

Arrived back safely from Tienen Belgium despite all the snow, more on that later.

New pics of the Downton Litter 5 weeks old.

They are growing so well and are such a friendly bunch of babies :)

Well, the weather in Tienen was a bit grim to say the least.

We had rain and fog on the way on Friday, Saturday was more of the same but the temerature was 14 degrees at least. This didnt help us much as the walk from the car park to the hall was rather longer than expected :)

However, the show was a success on Saturday in the UK camp!

Sunday was even better despite the start of the cold and snow.

Saturday 09 March
BE*Gilgad's Purple Haze Ex2
IP GB*Nandinakatts Mr Bombastic Ex1, CAGPIB
GB*Nandinakatts Queen Elizabeth EX1
GB*Nandinakatts Seeley Booth Ex1, NOM

Sunday 10 March (Norwegian Forest Cat Special)
BE*Gilgad's Purple Haze Ex1(5),BIV,NOM
GB*Nandinakatts Queen Elizabeth EX1, BIV3-10, NOM
GB*Nandinakatts Seeley Booth Ex1, BIV 3-10, NOM

Unfortunately on Sunday Mr Bombastic wasn't feeling up to scratch and we decided removed him from the competition. We want to thank everyone for a lovely weekend :)

 

On Monday we started back with light snow and then as we got to Calais it was increasingly worse.

At the Euro tunnel we missed the train as the workers were trying to clean the snow from every vehicle before entering. They stopped doing this about 6 cars in front of us and then they sent us to wait in the car park as our train had already left :(

Anyway we got on the next train and just as well as soon after they stopped all trains running from what we gather. Having reached Terra Ferma in the uk we battled through several storms until we reached the M11 and from there we were in more reasonable weather until we arrived home.

Lets hope Worcestershire next weekend will not be such a trial.

Yesterday in the Awards Gala Dinner of Felis Britannica we became 4th overall Best Breeders 2012 and 3rd Best Norwegian Forest Cats Breeder.

There is a lot of interest in this litter but no decisions will be made until they are 5-6 weeks old.

They are developing very nicely and they are very good weights as Shakira, as always is being an excellent mum:)

Mary refuses to get out of bed for photo shoot no matter what the price.

3rd Feb 2013

Welcome babies!!
Yesterday we had the pleasure of welcome our Downton Abbey Litter :)
We were not expecting so many as Shakira only gained 1020 grames on Wednesday so it is a mistery where she "toasted" all five of them. This is the 3rd time we repeat this combination as we love the outcome of that mating and always give us strong and very soppy kittens :)


More information and photos coming soon

to participate in the fun. Lance seems to be in a permanent state of frozen fur and unfortunately

refuses to use the catflap and is making life difficult for the resident doorman.

Lance still needs to find his forever home, he is a very sweet boy making honour to his name.

There are some new pictures in his page.
All the individual reults will be soon in their pages.

23rd October 2012

Well you will have to bear with me I am afraid. Clara is prone on the sofa with a bad back.

As some of you will know she was suffering at the Bourne show on Saturday and only made

it to deliver the cats to the pens on Sunday. After that things went downhill fast.

Details about all the achievements will be forthcoming shortly but suffice to say

GB*Nandinakatts Seeley Booth gained best in show overall on saturday and 2nd place on sunday.

Many thanks to Gary and others for helping show the cats throughout the 2 days.

The weekend of the 15th we attended the Alcester show where we got the chance to see again

the gorgeous Armani (now Bayley) and Firework (now Enzo). Thank you Lisa and Chris for taking them

to the show and for showing them in amazing condition.

Munchkin and Teddi's daughter, Zivannaz Pooh Bear, was best in show 6-10.

We are obviously very happy about that.

We took some of our kittens and they enjoyed the weekend with loads of cuddles.

In a few days Mia (GB*Nandinakatts Hips don't Lie) and Fi Fi (GB*Nandinakatts Hanky Panky) will be returned to us due to a new member of their family suffering a terrible allergy to them. Both girls are absolutely adored and it has been a very difficult decision, but as they only want the best for this two lovely girls we are looking for a lovely indoor home for both of them. They love each other and it will be a shame separate them.
They will be re-introduced to our cat family until they find a nice family.
Of course both girls are neutered and they are lovely pets.

Olivia has given us two wonderful litters but in the last pregnancy, with the twins located on the sciatic nerve she had a difficult time.

18th October 2011

Where to start?

There are some updates, we are catching up.

Unfortunately we have very sad news as our beloved Lady Gaga suddenly died at home. We are devastated as she was going to be part of this cattery.

We have done all the postmortems and we know she died of an acute kidney failure. It was so sudden and extremely hard as she was an extraordinary little cheeky character. All the results will be soon in our memory page as statistically this kind of thing only will happen to 0.2% of cats and sadly she was in that number.....

R.I.P Little Lady Gaga.

She was the spitten image of her father as you can see.

Munch and Amadeus love each other

On a more happy note life must go on and the rest of her sisters are growing lovely and happy and there are some new pictures in the kitten page.

GB*Nandinakatts Love Machine "Gizmo" was, last Saturday, in a GCCF show and he became Best of the Breed and Best in Show semi-long hair kitten!!!!

Our Ooops! litter was born on Thursday evening :)

This is our first litter sired by Amadeus (CH Old Possum's Tummel, JW) and it was not planned until later in the year but unfortunately Shakira escaped and Amadeus managed to do a quick mate.

In any case we are delighted with the outcome.

More information coming soon.
