Sadly, I am no longer breeding Abyssinians but I am keeping my web page going as a record of all my wonderful breeding cats and kittens.
From time to time, I will also advertise retired breeding Abyssinians that are looking for special pet homes or kittens from other breeders. Also do look at the Abyssinian Cat Club Welfare Page if you are interested in welfare homings.
Maddie is looking for a truly exceptional pet home (April update – currently reserved.)
She is a very special, and unusual, red retired queen who has been through quite a hard time so deserves the very best in life now. Although she seems very settled after returning home in October to me and my other cats, she really deserves her own forever home as a single cat. Maddie is just 7 years old, spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. She is really friendly and people orientated so needs plenty of one to one attention plus a fully cat proof garden where she can run and explore whilst being 100% safe.
Please use the contact form to get in touch if you are interested in hearing more about Maddie.
I do have another retired queen for homing who returned to me with Maddie. However, she is very different to Maddie and her rehabilitation is going to take time and much patience whilst she regains her trust in humans again as she is very scared – but now coming for regular strokes and head rubs as she is such a friendly girl underneath!
Update (April 21): my scared girl is well settled now and happily hunting worms in the garden. So well settled and growing in confidence every day – lovely affectionate girl and staying with me as not sure how she would cope with a change of owner after coming so far.

Shaybe’s Litter (born 4 January 2015)
Shaybe (usual) had 4 kittens on Monday 4th January 2015 by Shem (Palissy Ra Shem Tafari – red silver). She had 2 boys (usual and usual silver) and 2 girls (usual tortie and usual silver tortie).
They have all gone to their new homes.
Pansy’s Litter (born 21 July 2014)
All 3 kittens have gone to their new home – together, thank you so much S and G.
Update – Tad got great news on her final health check up as she is getting around so well that maybe she will keep her poorly leg and not need an amputation…
Highlight Pansy (sorrel tortie) and Palissy Ra Shem Tafari (red silver) had 4 kittens on 21 July – sadly a very beautiful red silver boy (Essence Theofeleios – meaning “Loved by God”) died at birth but we have 2 usual tortie girls and a usual silver boy remaining.
One of the girls (Essence Tadelech – Tad) had quite a low birth weight but after doing amazingly well putting on weight, as she grew it became clear that there is a major problem with one of her hind legs which was probably squashed in the womb as her lower limb is not growing as it should. The vet suggested putting her down but at 9 weeks Tad was dashing round and climbing just as fast as her 2 siblings and continuing to put on weight. She had quite a number of fans! She still might need her leg amputated at a later stage but for the moment she continues to be oblivious to any problems with her leg
Ziva’s litter (born 8 June 2014) All gone to new homes
Legend Ziva (chocolate) had her first litter on 8 June…Ra Shem Tafari (red silver) is the father (and got there first not Quizzy as planned!). See proud parents Ziva on Queens’ page and (very smug) Shem on Stud Boys’ page
The reserved kittens are: Essence Sisay Dante (usual boy), Essence Shanani Sky (usual tortie girl), Essence Semira Minnie (usual tortie girl ) and usual silver boy (Essence Senay Henry).
Cloud’s kittens (born 7 April 2014)
Homed – except for Persinnia who is staying! (see Queens’ Page.)
5 red silvers – 2 males and 3 very rare females ! First time red silver girls have been bred in UK as far as I know and first litter of 5 red kittens? The first none silver red girl was bred by Flamstone Abyssinians and I have the second (I think!) Essence Flame of Madiba (see Queens’ page).
2 red silver males (reserved) and 2 red silver females (reserved). I am keeping the 3rd red silver girl (Essence Persinna) to breed from.

Shaybe and Astarte’s (Star) litters (November 2011)
Star had 3 bonfire night kittens on 5 November (2 boys and a girl) from a mating with Flamstone Jaspurr. Shaybe had 4 kittens 3 days later – 2 girls (blue and usual tortie) and 2 boys (usual) from a mating with Flamstone Red Shah. These have now all gone to their new homes.
Two blue boys and a fawn silver girl were born end of May 2011 from Essence Derneku’s very first litter with Highlight Tobias (cream). The fawn girl sadly lost half her tail after a birth injury. All kittens from this litter are now reserved.
Below are images of the most recent litter from Highlight Habeba and Grand Champion Silversmoke Bill Davison (sorrel). This litter was a single cream silver boy (reserved).
