Snowgum The Earl [of] Essex

Snowgum The Earl of Essex (or Earl at home!) is from our first Aussie-born litter from Meadow x certified foundation stud Innokentii.  Earl is developing well and is now 7 months old.  He has a wonderful coat texture and beautiful strong markings.  As it's summer here in Sydney he doesn't have a full coat yet but we can't wait to see what it will be like when winter comes as he had such a beautiful full coat as a kitten.  Earl brings a brand new bloodline to the breed on his Dad's side which will add to the diversity of our breeding program.  Many thanks again to Maria Bunina for allowing the mating which has resulted in the very handsome Earl.

Here are some pics of him taken at 5 months of age.

Astra and Karina's kittens

Astra and Karina both recently had litters just a week apart. They have decided to raise their kittens together to share the mothering effort, something we have never had before. So cute seeing them care for each other and feed their babies interchangably!

Karina's babies are now 5 weeks and Astra's 6 weeks. All are reserved with the exception of two who may stay here for breeding (they have homes lined up should we decide not to keep them). Here are some pics:
