This page is dedicated to our dear departed who will remain in our hearts forever 






DOB - 17th August 2009 - 25th August 2009 


Hope was the girl I always wanted being a blue tortie, when we planned our first litter the children and I done a wish list of colours and tried to guess how many kittens and what sex they would be, we never thought we would have a big litter of 7!! When Hope appeared I was so excited to have a blue tortie, she was so beautiful.

As the days passed Hope lost interest in suckling and we try so hard to latch her on and tried to feed her with a bottle and syringe but she didn't want to take it. The vet  couldn't find any problem with her but she became weak and she passed away at 8 days old........she will always hold special memories to us.












DOB - 2nd August 2010 - 23rd December 2011


 We are so upset, nature can be so cruel but this is how nature works, sadly.  Now we have to experience the hard part of breeding, not all living creatures are made to stay in this world.


We noticed a problem with Magic at 12 weeks old, his heart seemed to beat very hard and very quickly, previously he was a normal gorgeous boy. We took him to the vets for a check and found that his heart was not good, the x-ray showed his heart was enlarged and was told to enjoy the time we had left with him as there was nothing that could be done. The vet explained that this is the age that kittens show signs of heart failure as their bodies develop quickly and grow rapidly, the problem was there from birth but as he grew his body wasn't capable of pump the oxygen around his body when he ran and jumped about playing.

On December 22nd we noticed Magic became very lethargic and didn't want his food, he always loved his ocean fish biscuits and through the night we hoped things would improve but they didn't, he had gone into the last stages of heart failure, the vet said it was time to let him go, we so badly wanted him to live but we couldn't see him suffer, so it was time to let him go peacefully.


 The HCM test was sent to Bristol University and showed the heart failure  is not genetically transferred – it is something that can happen to everyone if something goes just a little bit wrong with the early stages of development.

What has happened to us is not something we want to hide , this is a part of  breeding and a part of life,  something all you breeders should be prepared for. We have learned that breeding is not only fun and happiness – it will make you cry from laughter and cry with sadness.



 Here is a pretty rockery I done today  02/05/11 where Magic Star is buried so he can be with his friends by the cat pen ....



DYLAN January 1995 - 27th October 2011


Dylan my faithful friend who left us quickly due to kidney failure. The picture opposite is one of the very last ones taken a few days before we lost our wonderful boy!!

No words will ever describe how incredible Dylan was and how much joy he brought to me and the children.




They say memories are treasured,
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I wanted you,
a million tears I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one else could fill that Magic space.

If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.
