I fell in love with Birmans in
1997 when my first blue point Guinevere entered my home.
I then started looking for a lilac
point female (this colour was not so common in Italy) and I wanted her to
match my ideal Birman in temperament and stardard. It was an hard search...
In december 2003
Guiny was desexed and in 2004 I decided
to keep a daughter from Edjem (Isotta) and a daughter
from Morgana (Idril) and.... a son
fo Tinuviel (Kubla, neutered in 2006):
Not only is Idril
a very charismatic girl, but I planned the marriage of her mother Morgana to a
red boy in order to obtain a Faerie Kiss red girl. Morgana is seal tabby so I
could get no red girls directly from her but Idril (choc torbie) may give a
little red to me :-) I am enjoying playing a little while with colours.
The peds of these
cats brought new blood line in my cattery and in Italy.
During the year 2006, the blue I was longing for did not arrive... but Tinuviel had once again a very special litter, so I fell in love with Maharanee, seal tabby. Thanks to her perfect gloves and heart shaped head, as the judges write, she got in a few shows the FIFe Junior Winner title (second birman in Italy, the first is Lailoken!).
But also a beautiful blue from
Norway arrived... a male not a female!!
There are new purring beauties among queens and sires but this page has not been updated, yet.
I wish to thank my
friends, breeders I cooperate with, for our friendship that goes behind our love
for cats, and for having helped me to achieve Faerie Kiss kittens I am happy of.
Last but not least they gave me the possibily to bring, along with Tinuviel, Undomiel, Voltaire, Torrecerredo, Valentino
and Catch, new
interesting blood lines not only into my cattery but in Italy as well.
Since 2001 my cattery if FIFe
approved with the name "Ferie Kiss". In Italy, to get a name for your
cattery, you need to own at least two queens (one since 2004)
who already gave birth to healthy
kittens and one male (no male is necessary since 2008). This is the reason why I could not ask for it before and
my "old" kittens cannot have their surname "Faerie Kiss".
Why Faerie Kiss?
Birmans are very playful cats and in the meantime they are sooo sweet. They love people, children and other animals, too.
The standard of this breed is very difficult to be achieved. Most of the kittens are pet quality and this is the reason why the most important thing, in my opinion, is to breed looking for a purrrfect temperament and for healthy cats, not only for standard.
My queens usually have one litter per year. Colours we usually obtain are seal, chocolate, blue, lilac also in tabby (occasionally also red, cream, tortie and torbie). They leave their mothers when they are at least three months old and I will not allow them to travel alone to their new houses.
I suggest to everyone who decides to adopt a pedigreed cat who will be a companion for life, to personally visit the cattery the kitten comes from before making such an important choice.
