To better accomplish our above mentioned goals, we work together
with a few reputable breeders in The Netherlands as well as abroad.
- Beth Gardner, Haya-Ji Cattery -
Early 2001 I met Beth and we have become very good friends.
We got our 2 girls Leilani and Promise from her, and
a son of our Maestro went to live with her in sunny California, USA. Beth has
recently taken a break from breeding but our cooperation will not end nor will
our friendship! Who knows what the future will bring..
- Ingeborg Koster, Druidís Lodge Cattery -
Ingeborg, my friend who lives in Clinge, The Netherlands,
is an Oriental breeder who has taken on the challenge
of owning (or being owned by) Kirazamber's Jungle Joy. We do a lot of
linechasing together, as we are both very interested in genetics and ancestry.
- Kris Flossie, Cattery Markies de Carabbas -
Having met Kris at shows several times over the past years, it wasn't until January 2004 that we started
a conversation at a Belgian show which resulted in a close friendship.
Even though our cooperation is basically limited to the shorthairs, we feel we can be of significant
meaning to eachother, and not only in breeding cats..
Kris is located in Antwerp, Belgium.
- Marjan and Paul Kort, Cattery Release -
Marjan and Paul, living in Lelystad, The Netherlands, are the owners of Belle, one of our kittens
from a previous litter. With her they have taken their first step into the world of tabbies,
after having bred only solids for years.
- Sylvia van der Sman, Norbulingka Cattery -
Sylvia and I met when she was looking for a Balinese girl, hoping to infuse the Tibetans
with some new bloodlines. ("Tibe-what? Yes, it's a breed, although some beg to differ" :)
They are longhaired Tonkinese but only accepted in Dutch IDP catclubs.)
When she met Bonny though, a chocolate tortie ticked tabby Oriental Longhair girl,
it was love at first sight.. Sylvia hasn't entirely tossed the idea of breeding
Tibetans yet but embraced our entire breed group, the long and short of it :)
She is now owned and overwhelmed by Bonny, Susie and Faye, all Kirazamber girls
with matching personalities!
Sylvia lives in Zoetermeer, The Netherlands.
Together we hope to accomplish great results with these wonderful breeds.
