Welcome to the board, sharonbee! You'll soon find out that pictures are a necessity (we bug you unmercifully till we get some ) so I hope you're picking out your faves to share.

Hi Sharon, welcome to the forum. Can't wait to see photo's of your cats. Pardon the mental block, but what does the NFC stand for?

Nice kitties. All from breeders? I just have a few run of the mill babies.

Never mind. I saw your other thread where you explained where they came from.

Those are some good lookin' cats. (Why do Persians always look so pissed)? Hope everything works out well with Dave.

Thanks everyone for the lovely welcome, glad you all like my cats too. They have all come to us for different reasons... Max is 14 now and came to us at 5 years old when his owners lost their home and business, he came with his chinchilla brother Tico but sadly we lost Tico to kidney failure at 12 years old.

Chloe came with her brothers Pablo and Olli (now in kitty heaven) when her owner died, the devastated husband couldn't cope and let all the persians out when we got them they were flea ridden and severely matted.

Paris was a retired breeding queen and came to us for her retirement.

Dave was from a breeder who saw our story in a magazine of how we give homes to unwanted pedigrees and got in touch.

Isak was returned to his breeder at 5 months old when his previous owner had a breakdown and fed him on the wrong food and gave him lots of milk making him ill with diarrhoea problems, he then went to stay with another lady before joining us for his forever home.

Freya was also returned to breeder when the owners children terrorised her, she was so scared she started to soil on the childrens toys.

They are all very happy with us.
