Solange safely made her way to co-owner Sarah Walker (Boucles Selkirk Rex) in the UK. She accompanied Pete and Kitti Ruttan via plane to Paris, then by train To Amsterdam and Germany. Sarah picked her up at a show in Germany and then on to the UK via car. Many thanks to Kitti for taking her for us. She will be shown at UK/EU shows and bred to one (or more) of Sarah’s wonderful SRL males. Sarah notes she has settled in well and is getting along with her other cats including the famous “Schmoo”. Shown here checking out the new view.
Showed Smitten’s tabby & white neuter, “Spats” and Beyonce’s lilac male, “Prince” in HHP class at the Santa Rosa CFA show Feb 8-9 2014. There were 22 HHP (mostly vetern showers) and both kittens won Best HHP in one ring. ” Spats” finaled in all six rings and “Prince” in 5/6 rings entered. “Prince found a home with Bruce from Fremont and will be shown as a BL in TICA starting at the up coming Monterey show Feb 22-23. All judges commented on their great condition and friendly personalities. “Spats” is still looking for his forever home. I will also be showing TeddyBear the golden BL at Monterey.
Both Beyonce and Rachel underwent their first HCM scans today with Lori Siemens, DVM, DACVM. Both are negative at this time. Rachels’s litter sister “Quinn” owned by Donna M. was cleared for breeding also.
Three of Smitten’s kittens went to Jazzy Cats on Jan 4-5 where the 2 remaining females found wonderful new homes. Diana Starr of StarrlightPhotography.com took these photos at the show. They handled the show hall activity well. The remaining brown tabby with white neuter could make a nice starter HHP show kitten, or just a very sweet companion for some lucky person.
Beyonce’s two longhaired males also went to the Jazzy Cats Show. Diana took these photos of them. Both handled the bustling activity and many admirers with ease. They were evaluated by several judges and other Brit breeders for show potential and it was felt at this stage both look promising. I will be showing them until they find the right homes. Both carry chocolate and would be nice additions to a chocolate or golden British or Selkirk Rex breeding program. Their sire “Little Bear” looks set to finish as a RW again this show year. “Little Bear” is also the sire of the past two season’s top winning SR in TICA, IW SGC Kitti Kat Balcones Fault. All the kittens have sweet affectionate personalities
We currently have two litters of kittens. Both are sired by RW SGC Mainefolds Little Bear (cream BS) See photo and pedigree on Stud page.
