We have so far welcomed 9 kittens into the cattery this year. These will be appearing on our website and facebook page over the coming weeks. Our kittens can be visited from 5 weeks, and go to their new homes at 14 weeks. We never accept reservations over the telephone - kittens must be viewed in person before we allow them to be reserved. Please look at our kitten page for more details.
We have found a lovely new stud cat to welcome into the Willowpaws cattery - hopefully he will be out and about at some shows toward the end of 2017. Our super girl, Riascatz Georgette, was awarded Best Adult Persian at two shows in November/December, along with a Best Persian in Show, I cannot wait to see some babies from this girl in 2017.
I decided at the last minute to enter Lottie (Falabella Tortie But Nice) into the East Sussex Cat Club Show - I am so pleased I did, as she not only won her class and was awarded Best of Breed, she also went on to be Best Persian Kitten, with super comments from the judges. I am so proud of this litter bundle of fluff, at just 15 weeks old, and it was lovely for her breeder to be there and see her win. Needless to say I am very excited about her future on the show bench.
I am very pleased and excited to announce that we have just welcome Falabella Tortie But Nice (Lottie) into the Willowpaws Family. Lottie was bred by Kate Howard (Falabella Persians) and is by her Odd-Eyed Bi Colour Gr Ch Falabella Beautiful South out of Carinos Morning Glory.
We are very excited to announce that we have a new litter born from our foundation queen, Woosy Amour Ami - Grand Champion Sachabreen Gino Ginelli is the sire to this litter. We had 5 beauitful kittens arrive in the early hours of the morning - 3 boys and 2 girls. They are all so striking it will be very hard deciding which ones to hold onto to show.
We are very excited to announce that we have two new litters born within hours of each other - Grand Champion Sachabreen Gino Ginelli is the sire to both litters. Berikatz Willow The Wisp had 5 beautiful kittens, whilst Berikatz Willows Cameo had 3 little bundles of joy. Pictures are now on our kitten page.
