November Updates

Nothing much to report; cats are tucked in warm and cozy for the winter.

Will post kitten plans next month, we have some tentative ideas, but it will depend on cats!

Once plans are posted we will open our waiting list again. We will only be taking a few names as we do not breed excessively, preferring quality rather than quantity. If all goes well we should have our first 2018 kittens in the spring.

I will have some adults retiring next year as we reduce the size of our cattery. We will have a separate wait list for adults. However if you are thinking of a kitten and would consider an adult at the same time, let us know and we can offer you possible combinations.

For now, enjoy the rest of November and check back soon.

October update

Winter is coming.....

So, no kittens this year as Laska did not take :(
We will put our 2018 plans up early in the new year.

We have some British Shorthair adults available . Please contact us if you are looking for an older cat.

Also a young Siberian female has come available. Lagetha and her brother Floki went to live with Abida and  family. Her brother settled but she has not, so is looking for a home without young children. For more details contact me and I will forward your details.



Our Neva masquerade site will be upgraded soon. Check out www.nevamasqueradecat.com next month.

August updates

Say "Hello" to Calista! 
Our thanks to Claudia for another golden Neva Masquerade Siberian (golden tabby point).

We are hoping for a litter of colourpoints next year from this cutie and our 'HugeWolfie' - Witchfyre Lunar Wolf - golden lynx point Neva Masquerade Siberian (golden tabby point) early 2018. Watch this space.

Witchfyre Sergei (Blue Golden classic Siberian) and CH Witchfyre SilvaLaska (Silver tortie shaded Siberian) have been introduced and we are waiting to see if Laska is pregnant. Sergei is new at this game and they only had a couple of days together due to the wedding so will keep our fingers crossed and update as soon as we have some news....

It's July...just! New Cat Enclosure

Busy, busy busy! 
As promised; some photos of our new outside cat-proof garden. It measures 50ft by 50ft! At the moment we have only grass (and a few weeds) but over the next twelve months we will be planting cat safe flora and fauna....
With thanks to my ever resourceful hubby, Fine Mesh Metals , Derek Fox Timber and Protectapet mesh we now have a great place for our cats to hang out.

So far tested with British Shorthair neuters, Siberian neuters and Siberian females...no escapes to date.

View of our existing stud pen with mesh top fence attached.

 View from the shelter inside the enclosure...oh and a cat!

 View of detail of overhang netting and homemade brackets

 View of shelter complete with ivy!

 Temporary climbing frame made from old coffee table, planks, blocks and dead tree.

 View from opposite corner towards shelter.

If you are interested in how we made the enclosure, drop us an email. The total cost for land clear with digger, grass, poles, netting, brackets and shelter came to around £3000 for 2500 square feet of space (approx £1.20 square foot).

May Update

The sun is out! It does make you feel good....It also shows the cobwebs; time for a spring clean!

After a pretty hectic year, things around here are changing. Time is now a factor in everything I do and with a election looming, I just hope we get a government who represents the many and not the few.

Our cattery is undergoing a revamp. Whilst we are not having kittens we are currently working on a huge cat proofed garden 50 feet x 50 feet (thank you hubby). I will post some pictures soon.

In addition we will be decorating our kitten room over the summer holidays.

I still cannot decide on who to re-home; I love all my cats. It's a very difficult decision, but I promise to make some adults available soon. Thank you all those who have made inquires.

We will be updating our website with more cat and kitty pictures soon. You will then be able to see our focus and join Witchfyre & Witchstorm TNG (the next generation!).

If the work goes well on developing our facilities we are hoping for one litter later in the year. Watch this space.

We will also have news about a couple of new recruits joining us in the summer.

Take care
Shirley
