Our Once Upon a Time litter are growing fast and wonderful, at the moment all the kittens are on hold waiting for their visist of their prospective new families, a bit late but due to an incredible busy time for us.
Last but not least Juliet is expecting her first litter of kittens around the middle of April, we are very excited about this.
We welcome our Once Upon a Time Revisited litter, Aurora and Tommen present us with 4 lovely kittens on the 31st of January. We decided named them after the series as their mum.
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.
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.
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 :).
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 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.

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 ;-)
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
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.
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 .
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 ;-).
All their results will be soon in their individual pages and some pictures as well.
By the way we finally found the two missing kittens and the mother if you can see her in the background. Only 30 minutes of swearing involved for this pic!!!

4th June 2014
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??

Al Fresco dining all together.
We had a lovely weekend in Swanley were:
GIP & IC GB*Nandinakatts Squirrel Nutkin got two CAPs
So proud of all of them :)
Now back home and all settled after a lovely show in Apeldoorn where
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.
Tempy being the cuddly mum that she is.

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:
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.
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.
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!
I can lick rings around you fishes!
