Anyone who wants a new kitten - what to do, what NOT to do !
Anyone who needs help or advice on most problems with most animals - I've been there myself !
Anyone who is concerned about introducing a new kitten to a home where there are already cats present.......
I have a "DIVA" as well - she is jealous of any of my other cats - and regularly gives them a slap !but it's not such a big problem as you think
In my 69 + years I have learned much,including working as Veterinary Nurse etc. etc.
I am the International Council Representative for the Ragdoll BreedI am a fully qualified Kennel Club Dog Judge
I have bred and Judged everything from Mouse to Horse -
Arabians, Welsh, Palomino's, minitures, spotteds etc. etc.........
just too much information to put on here,
but believe me I have the knowledge & experience to help anyone !
I started breeding with MICE when I was 6 yrs old, by the time I was 11 yrs old I was seriously involved with genetics,
and had 147 Mice, all categorized according to to colour, temperament etc. etc.
I then moved on to Rabbits, then Guinea Pigs………. dogs,
Arabian horses, then Miniature Ponies…….. (under the Prefix of Ashuer)
then moved onto cats......... totally by accident!
My beautiful Tabitha was a Seal Tabby Point Siamese from the Beaumaris pedigree bloodlines,that I bought (more like rescued) from disgusting awful so called breeder premises back in 1971,she was in a dreadful state, my vet at the time told me she was pregnant and did not think she would make it,she was vicious and not humanised at all,
initially she had to live in the greenhouse
purely because she was impossible to handle and integrate with my cats,
however subsequently with much TLC from me she pulled through and had 6 babies .....
born behind my couch in the living room,
my first litter of siamese born the weekend of the royal wedding.
So totally by accident, this Seal Tabby Siamese here begins my cat breeding career............
I applied for a Prefix, which originally was SHARUE (Anagram of my surname at that time)
Then went on for the next 37 years went on to produce many champions and premiers in the UK and worldwide.
GRAND CHAMPION SHARUE SUN PRINCE is a legend, my man, so special to me,
it was heartbreaking to lose him because of a vet's cock up ......
Also of course the beginnings of the Shimileeta line,
via my GRAND CHAMPION PLATINUM PRINCE Oriental White, who got 14 Grand Challenge Certificates in 14 shows,
plus two other Male & Female GRAND CHAMPION SHARUE SNOW LEOPARD Oriental White,
PREMIER SHARUE WILLY WAGTAIL, Chocolate Point Siamese
AND GRAND CHAMPION SHARUE TAMARISK TOYA Seal Point Siamese that I gave to
Jenny Bauerfiend (Shimeleeta Cats) this lady came to me for a siamese pet, but I had Snowleopard - an Oriental White boy, she fell in love with him and also later the Chocolate Siamese boy, Willy Wagtail
this was thestart her breeding career and to date she is still a crazy cat lady like myself,
and she has bred many champions. still very involved in the cat world today.
I also exported many cat all over the world, as far as South Africa - and of course only sent the very best,
hence many more International Champions worldwide, to be honest to many to list here !
Also in the '80's I was on the committee of The Moulton Park Animal College in Kettering,
a position I held until I moved to London in 1997.
Apart from the obvious committee meetings I had groups of 10 Students come that were on courses
when I taught them how to run a Licensed Boarding (FAB Approved) Cattery, also a Breeding Cattery.
In 2007, I imported from a breeder in Germany, a beautiful Seychois boy,
the first International Champion of a new breed “Seychellois”
International Champion De Shiva's Lacota Warpaint,
sadly this poor boy was so ill when he arrived,
smuggled into the country and full of antibiotics
and died only two months later,
with me in my bed,
he was a lovely special boy exploited by breeders with a house full of sick cats,
it totally broke my heart, just how ruthless people can be for "red cards" and money.
This was shortly after losing previously losing "my man” Gr. Ch. Sharue Sun Prince,
the Number One Siamese in the UK at that time, and a legend in the Cat Fancy.
Sadly his death at aged 14 was due to a veterinary error with the wrong medication,
back in 2003,
then losing Lacota in 2007
plus the ongoing problems of illness in my cats from Lacota, it was too much to bear.
especially my beautiful stud boys; and I stopped breeding Siamese and Orientals,
as I refuse to breed with sick cats.
So on top of the already sadness and pain, this took me into the depths of depression.....
I also had a severe injury from an accident in 2007,
which left me immobile and almost impossible to care for my many cats.
With a broken heart I was forced to re-home my babies all to pet homes,
all free to the new owners, also had to relocate to be cared for during my immobility,
40 odd years of selective breeding gone forever
Then during the later part of my rehabilitation, able to walk somewhat again,
Feeling unable to breed cats again, I started breeding White Pomeranians (hence the Prefix "Snowpoms")
Being a person to only do things right, also strive to achieve the best;
I finally completed my Judging Examination Certificates with the Kennel Club,
and achieved Qualifications as a Full Kennel Club Judge in late 2014.
But - I soon realised I could not live without my cats so brought a couple of Ragdolls
and discovered what an amazing, underestimated breed for any age, any family,
such a laid back breed I felt was perfect for both OAP's and families with children.
Being totally smitten with what I feel is the perfect cat for any family,
My cat breeding career was kickstarted again, and sadly finding such a small gene pool in this country,
I knew I had to import outcross Traditional bloodlines and knew yet again I had to only produce THE BEST,
anything less should not be bred !
I spent lots of money bringing in new Champion traditional Pedigree Male Ragdolls from Germany,
to put fresh new blood into the very limited British bloodlines ultimately giving longer lives of course all tested HCM free
(and PKD, since we are told it is not relevant to the Ragdoll, but for Persians)
I know I produce the best Traditional type Ragdoll babies, nevertheless the cost of my kittens is still pet price
and considerably less than some "breeders" are charging !
although I know 99.9999% are top show quality.
I honestly feel that if we strive to breed any species it should be the best,
I feel that anything less is not worth the effort.......
ALSO - It does not cost any more to produce beautiful show quality babies,
than to breed something not worth the time and effort.
(unless of course you are a backyard breeder and/or scammer)
