Merry Christmas!

I hope you are all enjoying the festive season! We have the Christmas tree up now and the cats are enjoying pulling off the decorations and stalking around under the tree as if they were in a forest somewhere- very cute!

Many of you will remember this pic from our website last year but Frostie looked so cute in her Xmas outfit that I couldn't resist posting it again this year. She is our "Santa Claws" ;-) And before you ask, yes she is actually wearing the coat and hat! I'm not that good with Photoshop!!!

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and all the best for the new year!

Indy settling in

Indy is settling in nicely here so I thought I'd post some pics of her chilling out around the house. She is a real sweetheart who loves to come and wake me up in the morning with a meow and a purr!

Indiana arrives!

After a 10 month wait our new girl Indiana has finally arrived! We combined our holiday with her collection taking a 2.5 week road trip through Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland with the final destination of Venice Italy to collect her. The holiday was fantastic, we saw so many amazing places and stayed in some gorgeous Chateaux through France. There was a lot of driving but the gorgeous colours in the autumn leaves made it a spectacular drive. Apologies to those who emailed while we were away- we had very limited email access on the trip.

It seems the long wait was worth it- Indy is a gorgeous girl and very sweet natured. It was wonderful to meet Indy's breeder Melissa, her parents Darcy and Babylas as well as Melissa's other gorgeous Sibis.

The trip back was surprisingly easy with the PETS passport making the Channel Tunnel crossing very quick and hassle free. We have to say a big thank you to Melissa for organising all of Indy's paperwork and keeping her for us while she waited for her passport!

Here are some pics of our new princess enjoying the hotel in Calais:

Supreme Grand Champion Snowgum Titan!

Titan had a fantastic day at the TICA Bengal Cat Club show on Saturday and made us incredibly proud by winning Best Cat in Monika Dany's ring! This now makes him a Supreme Grand Champion!!!! A fantastic achievement for our young man from our very first litter! It was a very nerve wracking win as they kept me in suspense before announcing which of the last two of the 10 finalists was going to be awarded Best Cat! Titan has had a lot of second and third places lately so it's wonderful that he has now achieved first place as an adult. He really did brilliantly as a kitten winning Best Kitten 10 times in just a handful of shows, so it's fantastic to see he's still got it now he's more grown up :-) He doesn't even have much of a coat yet as it's been warm in London so maybe we'll take him out one more time when his winter coat comes in. But for now he's going to enjoy a well deserved rest from the show circuit :-) Well done Mr T! You are a very handsome guy and we're very proud of you!!!

Here are some pics of RW SGC Snowgum Titan at the show. I didn't get any of him actually winning 1st place as I was too overwhelmed to remember to take pictures!

Titan is a star!

If you saw Joanna Lumley's Catwoman show on ITV last Sunday night then you will have seen our boy Mr T! Joanna did some of the fliming for her show at one of the TICA shows earlier this year and Mr T was there strutting his stuff. Joanna spent some time sitting with us and patting Titan and then they took some footage of me brushing him prior to him being judged. We weren't sure if he'd make the final cut and we were very excited when we saw the footage on telly the other night! It's only a few seconds, blink and you'll miss it, but he's still there and he looked very handsome :-) If you missed the show you can still watch it on their website:

Indiana- look how she's grown!

We have just received some new photos of our gorgeous new girl Laguna Syberiana Indiana from her lovely breeder Melissa of Laguna Syberiana. Indy was born in Italy in January and is currently doing the long wait to get her PETS passport to come and join us in the UK. I have so many lovely photos of Indy, right from when she was 1 week old, so I thought I'd post them so that you can see how she has grown! Thank you Melissa for sending us so many photos of our gorgeous girl :-)
