Tilly (Kizzacoons Chantilly Creme)
DOB 2nd May 2013
Tilly is now retired and happy in her new forever home. She was such a friendly girl and was definitely the mother of the group and general groomer; when we brushed one of the other cats or kittens, Tilly was never far behind cleaning up after our 'mess'.
Sadly, we did not keep any of Tilly's babies, so we have been unable to run on any of her lineage.
Fergie (Jungle Man's One and Only)
DOB 9th July 2013
Fergie is a real diva in the nicest sense. If she were human, she would be someone famous with designer clobber, a top notch pad or six, a famous husband, a bottomless bank account and the coolest of friends. She is defintely in the 'too cool for school' league. Fergie has the most wonderful personality and is very charismatic; she gets whatever she wants, when she wants, effortlessly.
AKA The Princess is also a very, sweet and loving girl, who is now neutered and lives a leisurely life of retirement, together with her daughter Maisue Mae, with Mira and Rob
Sasha (FIFe Champion Elcontra Barcelona D'Jumbo)
DOB 18th July 2013
Sasha is a wonderful clear black silver classic tabby girl. At her first FIFe show she was nominated for best in show and she consistently did well on the show bench and quickly gained her Champion status.
Although Sasha was 4 years old by the time she retired, she remained the baby of the group and continued with her habit of testing all normal conventions; doing absolutely everything her own way. We often found her asleep in the weirdest places and strangest positions.
We also think she must have been a little Houdini as she got into and out of rooms/doors/spaces without us knowing how.
Thankfully this didn't included going outdoors, but it did mean an unplanned liaison between Sasha and Barney (we are not sure if Sasha or Barney, or both, were the culprit in that particular 'break out') but the liaison resulted in the most wonderful patter of little kitty feet, including Storm in A Teacup - owned by our friend Frankie. Storm occasionally graces the show bench and is a Premier (the neuter equivalent of Champion status).
Then in 2017, Sasha delivered babies sired by our Dexter. They were the most fantastic babies, and as we couldn't decide between 2 of the girls, so we kept both PawSecco Pizzazz and Belle of the Ball.
Sasha is now neutered and living with Hannah and Dan who are spoiling and pampering her to her hearts' content :)
Annie (Bhanacoyne Quixotic)
DOB 6th June 2014
Annie joined us in August 2014 and very quickly became a very good pal with Maddox. She's a very friendly girl with a huge purr and has a very sweet nature. She liked to where she fitted in the pecking order with our brood, and likewise, she liked everyone else to know their place.
However, during the evening 'mad half hour' time, Annie was always in the very middle of the crazy cat antics and literally bounced off the walls and springboards across our furniture. If human, Annie would surely be an esteemed athlete.
Annie has had the sweetest babies and was a very tolerant, patient mummy to them.
Annie has now retired and is very happy and pampered.
Maisie (FIFe Champion Janeissa Maisie Mae)
DOB 28th May 2014
Maisie Mae is the daughter of Fergie and Hugo, and is such a flashy, pretty, happy go lucky girl who is very easy going, unfazed and relaxed with everything. During her show career, she handled shows brilliantly, lapping up all the attention and taking in everything going on around her. Maisie has the most wonderful voice and makes an assortment of Meep Meep (inherited from her mum Fergie) and trilling noises.
Maisie became a mummy, to kittens sired by Barney, and we just couldn't resist keeping Lady Marmalade, who seems to carry a wonderful mix of Maisie and Barney temperament: wise yet crazy: mad, funny, flirty, chatty, and loves the judges at cat shows.
Maisie is now neutered and her daughter Lady Marmalade has taken over Maisie's mantle on the show-bench. Maisie lives with her mum Fergie, with her new human parents Mira and Rob.
Maddox (FIFe Champion Janeissa Maddox)
DOB 28th May 2014
Like her sister Maisie, Maddox also stole our hearts. She wasn't particularly the prettiest of kittens and she has a masculine head, which she has grown into. I think she is gorgeous and she has done well on the show circuit, and is now a Champion.
Maddox is a sensible, no-nonsense girl, and you can almost see her rolling her eyes and saying 'really?' when the others are being daft and silly. She has her mum's sense of efficiency.
Maddox is also very perceptive and is always on hand when any of us are feeling cross, upset or under the weather. She has a calming presence and would make a wonderful therapy cat ! She often just sits quietly next to me, softly purring and occasionally stretching a paw to remind me she's there for me.
Jo-Jo (Jungle Man's Navajo)
DOB 15th July 2014
Navajo joined us at the end of October 2014, after I flew over from Prague to Denmark as the World Show ended so that we could drive her back with us to the UK. Jo-Jo is the second kitten we have brought to the UK from Gitte and Orla Dahm, and as with Fergie, we are delighted with her - she is a real treasure.
She is a very stunning girl and has a wonderful temperament; very loving but also having a great fun side to her. She often launches at me for cuddles irrespective as to whether or not I have my hands free, and she has an endearing habit of holding her paws out to you as you get close; as if to give a high five and say, hello mummy, give me love and cuddles.
Jo-Jo also likes to hold hands with me when she settles for a cuddle, and she likes her paws held when she gives birth to her babies. She's a really sweet and quirky girl.
Jo Jo is the mother of Tres Noir (sired by Barney) and of Son of Clooney (Walter) - who lives with Josie Hughes of Lisieux Maine Coons.
Thank you Gitte and Orla for letting another beautiful Jungle Man's cat live with us. We are taking good care of her and she is very much loved.
Ava - Esmerelda Eve Drongo (Retired) and Eva -Escada Elfa Drongo (Deceased)
DOB 14th November 2014
Ava (on the left) and Eva joined us from a breeder in Estonia. We chanced across these 2 beauties whilst skiing in the alpes - well actually, the boys were skiing and Chelsea and I were relaxing in the hot tub, overlooking the slopes, drinking Prosecco and browsing the web. The outcome was that these beautiful sisters joined our family. They have since each had a litter of kittens, and we have kept Lily Frost from the Ava/Barney mating, and Jasabella Tinker Belle from the Eva/Statham mating.
Eva and Ava have since been neutered and are now retired.
