GSD4: n/n by parentage

Zippo - 2 years + 6,5 months old

Finally, we have our red male! I had been searching for a red male for such a long time - I wanted him to be classic and preferably also with silver and now, we got such a male in our own litter   So the decision to keep him was already made when he was just born...

Zippo is a very big and strongly built boy with a very beautiful triangular head, a ruler straight profile, strong chin, perfectly placed ears with small lynx tips and very stunning green eyes. He has strong legs and big paws and a long tail. In short, Zippo is very close to being perfect in our eyes   In addition to his outer qualities, he has an absolutely adorable temperament and purrs when we just look at him. He loves having his belly rubbed and is just soooo adorable!

Zippo ended his show carreer with the highest possible title. His show results are really very amazing!

We are more than happy that our dream of a red boy finally became reality. To us, he is perfect inside and outside.

On 27.02.2019, Zippo was neutered and will now enjoy his retirement with us.

Zippo is the father of our following litters: B3-Litter, G3-Litter, F3-Litter, Q3-Litter, A3-Litter

Zippo is the father of the "G2-Litter of Dandy Blue".

BE*Peppone des Sorcières  * 09.07.2019 /  red-silver-classic-tabby

GSD4: n/n by parentage

PK Def. (Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency): n/n by parentage

Peppone - 3 years + 6 months old

Peppone is the grandson of our beloved boy Zippo and our Mia and we hope that with him, we will manage to restart our breeding program after having had quite a lot of bad luck with our males in the past. Already a few days after Peppone was born, it was clear that he would be living with us and we are more than happy about our decision.

Peppone has everything we would wish for - a straight profile, strong chin and perfectly placed, big ears as well as being strongly built. But the most important thing about him is his wonderful and friendly temperament - after only a few days, he made friends with our other cats and with us and now, he purrs, when we just look at him. He is a real sunbeam and we honestly hope that he will be the breeding male that we have longed for for so many months...

Thank you so much to Claudine for him - we promise that we will take excellent care of him.

Peppone is father of our H3-Litter and of our O3-Litter.

Much to our regret, we had to have Peppone neutered in July 2022 because he started to spray all over our house. Peppone will now enjoy his retirement as beloved neuter with us.

SI*Forest Paws Ash  * 04.03.2021 /  black-classic-tabby

GSD4: n/n by parentage

PK Def. (Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency): n/n by parentage

Ash  - 1 year + almost 5 months old

Of course, we had to search for a new male for the two daughters that we kept of our male Peppone and with our Ash, we have another adorable sunbeam at home

Ash is a strongly built young boy with a lovely triangular head with a straight profile, a good chin and perfectly placed big ears with XXL lynx tips. He has a very beautiful clear classic tabby pattern (according to his pedigree, he should be silver, but we are convinced that he isn't silver after all, but a very handsome boy in black-classic-tabby). Ash has big paws and a very strong and long body.

The most wonderful thing about him is his adorable temperament: he purrs whenever we look at him and puts his whole head and body into our hands whenever he gets the chance to do so. He is absolutely adorable and we are more than in love with him!

Thank you so much, dear Tadeja, for letting us share our lives with this adorable sunbeam - we will take good care of him, that's a promise

Update 19th August 2022: unfortunately, we had to have our Ash neutered today because he turned out to be epileptic and therefore, could not be a part of our breeding programm anymore. The risk that he could pass on the epilepsy to his kittens is too high so we decided with a heavy heart to have him neutered.

HR*Midola's Oline  * 16.06.2021 /  black-silver-classic-tabby

GSD4: n/n by parentage

PK Def. (Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency): n/n by parentage

Oline - 1 year + 5,5 months old

No - we didn't really need another silver girl, BUT we just couldn't resist this fantastic silver  - right when we saw the newborn photos of this litter. So it was decided very spontaneously that Oline would come over to live with us.

Oline is a big young girl, high on her legs with a lovely triangular head, a good chin and perfectly placed big ears. We are still absolutely fascinated with her clear classic-tabby markings and her strong silver contrast!

Oline settled in with us and our other cats within only a few days and is now enjoying life playing with the other youngsters inside our house and in our secured yard. She is a very friendly and uncomplicated girl who purrs when we touch her

Once again, our deep heartfelt thanks to our dear friend Trpimir for entusting us with this little silver treasure - we will take good care of her!

Update August 2022: Unfortunately, our Oline has FIP (wet form) and is treated against it with success. But of course, we cannot use her in breeding anymore. When the treatment will be finished, we will have her neutered. We are very sad to lose such a wonderful female for our breeding program - but at the same time very thankful, that FIP can be treated successfully nowadays.
