Our 2013 kitten plans

I’m so excited to announce that we should have kittens quite shortly!


We are planning Meeko’s (and Ailuring’s) first litter  for mid-2013. I will update our Kitten Plans page when we have a more definite due date.

We have an extremely handsome, show-stopping classic Oriental stud in mind (again, more details to follow, once we are sure that Meeko is pregnant).


We are hoping for classic (blotched) tabby kittens. Classic tabbies are a beautiful pattern: they look like they have a bullseye painted on each of their flanks. Spotted tabbies (like their mum) are also likely (probably around half of the kittens will have spots instead of a bullseye).

Meeko is homozygous for agouti (which means she has two-out-of-two genes for tabby markings), so all the kittens will have tabby patterns. There will be no solid (or smoke) or Siamese kittens in any of Meeko’s litters.


The kittens in this litter should be a real mix of colours, some with silver and some without. We are expecting mainly black and chocolate kittens, but we may be lucky enough to have some blue or lilac babies too.


If you would like to make an enquiry about this (or any other) litter, please feel free to get in touch with us.

Can a spotty cat be spotless?

I don’t know, but Meeko’s certainly trying!

Spring has sprung

It’s still a bit nippy outside, but the cats are taking full advantage of our first warmish day this year and have spent the afternoon sunning themselves out on the balcony.

It looks very relaxing, but it’s not warm enough for me to join them yet.

Think, think think!

Contemplative cat

I caught this lovely shot of Moosh sitting still this morning. He seemed to be very deep in thought, and even me on the floor with my camera didn’t seem to snap him out of his reverie.

I see this serious expression on his face quite often, but can’t usually get in on camera. He usually approaches me straight away for a game when I sit on the floor, so I was very pleased that I managed to snap this picture before he ‘woke up’ and came over purring. 🙂

Isn’t she beautiful?

All mine!

Mushu and Meeko love sleeping in a hug. It’s the cutest thing!
