Rehoming Kaliyani…



With a heavy heart I have decided to rehome my beautiful Caramel Oriental, Kaliyani.  She does not get on with any of my other cats and one of them has attacked her and she is now terrified of it.

She is already neutered and up-to-date with vaccines, and needs a quiet safe indoor home with no other pets, small children or noisy teenagers.

She will probably become a wonderful, loving cat with some peace and quiet away from the gang here.

If you think you can offer her a suitable home, please contact me.

Kaliyani pregnant


Kaliyani (Ch Kyomi Kaliyani) visited Tom’s beautiful Havana boy JJ (Imp Gr Ch Fiordiliso Infidelity), and her kittens are due on the 20th January 2012, give or take a day or two. She has a rapidly expanding waistline, and also a personality transplant – all of a sudden she is cuddling up to Barbara and she let me stroke her!  Her coat is really fine, short and soft, such a delight to touch.

Show Results Updated

I have added the show results for the last three shows – the Merseyside (Kali and Saffi), and the Humberside and Lincolnshire (Kali).

Kali got the first CC awarded to a Caramel Oriental at the Merseyside (thanks to Mr Hansson), and two more and the Humberside and Linolnshire shows (thanks to Dr Bennett and Mrs Harper) to become the first titled Oriental Female and hence also the first Oriental Female Champion.  She is now known as CH Kyomi Kaliyani and we are all so proud of her.

She didn’t quite make being the very first titled Caramel Oriental – that went to PR Moustaches Caramelle Twist, who is also one of the cats that helped the breed attain it’s championship status.

Loads of thanks are due to her breeder, Sue of Kyomi.

Kali is now the first titled female Oriental Caramel!

She went to the joint Humberside and Lincolnshire shows at the Doncaster Dome, and got her 2nd and 3rd CCs to become the first titled Oriental Caramel female.  Her breeder is absolutely thrilled, and we are absolultely thrilled.  Thanks to Sue for letting us have her, and to Mr Hanssen, Dr Bennett and Mrs Harper for the CCs.

Kyomi Siamese and Orientals

Congratulations are also due to Pr Moustaches Caramelle Twist who became the very first titled Oriental Caramel the previous week, to Champion Dedannan Treasure-Me who was in the adjacent pen to Kali and became the first male Champion.

She said I am “a bit round in the tummy department”!!!



That nice lady who cuddled and cooed at me the other week has been telling horrible lies – she says I am plump!  No, I’m perfectly cuddlitious, adorably cuddlesome, the cutest thing going (drat that kitten) and in training to become another Minx.  So there!

PS here’s me again, just in case you were forgetting how delicious I am.  🙂

Minnie says:  That nice lady was very nice about you!  “Quality kitten”, “Pretty little Person”.  and yet you moan!  Your adoring public can read it on the GCCF web site, about 3/4 of the way down.

My Big Day Out!



Kali writes:  I had a big day out!  It was wicked!  Lots of people in white coats made a bit fuss of me and told me how clever I was and what a nice girl I am and how lovely I am and how well I behaved.  Then both of my staff (had an extra one for some reason) made another big fuss so I purred to reward them.  But I made sure they didn’t forget about me in the car – I talked to them all the way there and back.  🙂  My staff tell my I won my Open Class (whatever that is) and got a Best of Breed as well.   There was a lady taking photos as well and she took me!  I was extra special good to her, I kept trying to give her purrs and kisses.  Everyone loved me!  Was very tired when I got back home though.  Thought I was going to meet Micha but he wasn’t there.  He would have fallen at my feet.  Also, something horrible happened after I got home.  Someone let a kitten in!  It is cuter than me!  That CANNOT be allowed.

Minnie comments: She was a right pain all the way there and back.  Yeowl, yeowl, yeowl and she clawed my staff as well.  I am such a good girl in comparison – I only talk a bit for an hour or so!  BTW she went to the Trans Penine Oriental and Siamese Cat Club (TPOSCC) show in Stockport.  She won her Open Class (Caramel kitten), and got two seconds and a third in large side classes.

Announcing Kyomi Kalyani

Kyomi Kalyani

Kyomi Kalyani is a Caramel Oriental and hopefully will be my new breeding queen. 

Kalyani is an Indian name meaning …. beautiful, blissful, blessed, fortunate, auspiscious, also the name of a goddess!! Lets hope she can live up to this name!!!

Lots of thanks to Sue for her.  She is still with Sue at present and will be joining me in early November when she is 13 weeks old.  She doesn’t have a pet name yet, that will come once she is settling in here.

Her dad is CJ, Sue’s Havana stud, and her mum is Lulu, a beautiful seal-point Siamese.  Here she is with her litter mate, a seal-point Siamese.
