Introducing Tundra...

No we haven't adopted another cat, Tundra is Snowgum Titan's stage name in his issue of "The Cat Collection" Magazine! You may remember that Titan did a photoshoot in November last year, well the magazine is now out and to my surprise, the whole issue is filled with photos of our boy! They have given him the name "Tundra the Siberian" (not a bad name actually, maybe I'll use that for one of his future kittens ;-) and changed his age to 3 years instead of the 1.5 years he was at the time of the shoot! But we are thrilled with the result. The best bit is the furry toy that they have created to look like him! It even has the Siberian signature furry ear brushes sticking out of its ears! So cute!

If you would like your very own Tundra soft toy, or would just like to see our handsome boy's pics in the magazine you can order his issue (47) from the publisher's website: Be sure to select your country from the home page to get the right currency. Enjoy!

Show success!

Last weekend we took Delta and her son Spirit to the Garden of England FIFe cat show in Worthing. We had a great time and both of them made us very proud!

Delta was awarded the final two CAC certificates she needed, so after I get all the paperwork done she will now be "Champion Delta Diva Siberia"! She was also nominated for the best in show final on Sunday! Well done Delta!

Spirit was very well recieved by the judges and by the visiting general public too. We were amazed that he showed no signs of nerves despite it being his first show! Spirit was awarded Ex1 both days, BIV on Sunday and was nominated both days for the best in show final! Unfortunately he lost out both days two votes to one to a beautiful silver and white Norwegian kitten. Still, he got some wonderful comments from the judges and we were very proud of the little man to make it that far. Way to go Spirit!

Here are some pics of them at the show:

A new family member

For those of you who don't yet know, the reason we are taking a break from breeding for a while is to welcome a new family member. Our first fur-free baby is due in December! I am definitely showing now and can often feel the baby kick inside. We are very excited and can't wait to meet the little one! Here is a pic taken at a scan a couple of weeks ago:
