Vervain Breeding Queens
NB click on any of the pictures to start a slide show.
I currently have 2 Burmese queens. Cherry (Vervain Cherryplum) is a pretty lilac girl, born March 2008. She did very well at shows as a kitten and was Best of Variety Burmese Kitten at the GCCF Supreme Show in 2008. Inbreeding 4.2% (8 generations) / 22.4% (16 generations).

Lola (Vervain Laurelin), a chocolate tortie, was born in September 2009. She is Cherry’s half-sister. Tragically, their mother Nina died when Lola was just over 5 weeks old. Lola hasn’t had a litter as yet but hopefully she will in 2012. Inbreeding 4.2% (8 generations) / 26.9% (16 generations).

I don’t currently have a Burmilla queen as I’m waiting for a suitable silver girl from another breeder. I do however have Sophie (Vervain Sophie-Elisabeth) who is a brown silver Asian ticked tabby and my last remaining longhair carrier. I am hoping to mate her to an unrelated silver longhair carrier boy to produce both Burmillas and Tiffanies. Inbreeding 2.3% (8 generations) / 18.2% (16 generations).

Ocicat & Ocicat Classic
At the moment I have Alice (Vervain Aerlinn), a tawny spotted girl, and her daughter Zelda (Vervain Sielun Veljet) a tawny classic. Ocicat Classics are now recognised by GCCF and can be interbred with (spotted) Ocicats. Personally I love the classic pattern and enjoy having litters of spotted and classic patterned kittens.
Alice’s is a well marked tawny with dark brown spots, good contrast and a warm bronze undercoat. Her father was Teemu (Lumo Tezcatlipoca, lilac Finnish import) so she carries both blue and chocolate. Inbreeding 1.4% (8 generations) and 20.5% (16 generations).

Zelda is a very strikingly patterned girl with intense black markings and a rich warm bronze ground colour. I’ve often heard it said that silvers produce poor colour in their non-silver offspring, (Zelda’s dad was chocolate silver) but I’ve proved this wrong many times with my Ocicats. Inbreeding 2.9% (8 generations) and 23.4% (16 generations).
