LATEST NEWS

26th May 2019
Champion Bellis Summertime had 6 kittens on 22nd May, 5 Orientals and 1 Siamese.
Champion Bellis Autumn had 4 kittens 4 days later, all Siamese. After a few days Autumn took her kittens into Summertime's box! So the two girls are raising all 10 kittens together.

19th January 2019
I apologise to anyone who has been trying to contact me, but I have been in the wars - again. I was just recovering from injuries sustained in a car crash before Christmas, when a couple of days ago I slipped on the garden path and broke my ankle. Really bad timing as Bellis Christine was due to have kittens. Thankfully though she had 6 babies without much assistance from me on Friday 18th January 2019. They are doing OK at the moment, but I can't keep such a close eye as I would like. I will have to trust Christie to look after them.

10th November 2018
Champion Bellis Summertime had 3 babies, all girls. Dad is Champion Bellis Willoughby.

14th July 2018
Bellis Christine had 6 kittens - 4 boys and 2 girls, blue points and seal points. Dad is Champion Druidsway Keops.

Bellis Gigha with her owner June went to their first show on 14th April 2018. Gigha had a wonderful day winning all her classes, Best of Breed and her first Premier Certificate. Congratulations Gigha and June!

17th November 2017
Champion Bellis Summertime gave birth to 4 kittens, 2 boys and 2 girls. She is Springtime's daughter, and I was expecting Springtime to 'show her the ropes', but that was not to be. However after her first initial surprise at what was happening Summertime has settled into being the same attentive mum that her own mum was so outstanding at.

29th October 2017
It is with huge amount of disbelief and sadness that I have to report that my dear girl, Champion Bellis Springtime, has died. She became ill very suddenly yesterday and despite rushing her to the vets, she died there overnight. I shall miss her tremendously. She was only 6 years old.

29th May 2017
Bellis Christine had her kittens early this morning. It is her first litter and after initially not having a clue what was happening, she soon settled into looking after her babies. She had 6 kittens with no problems, but there was a number 7 who was being presented in a very peculiar way, which meant it was impossible for Christie to give birth to him. So unfortunately she had to have a Caesarian to remove the kitten (which was dead). She recovered extremely well from the operation and the remaining 6 kittens, and Christie herself, are all doing very well.

12th February 2017
I apologise to everyone who has been trying to contact me. I broke an arm and a leg before Christmas and had to spend a few weeks in hospital and a rehabilitation home to recover. No internet access!

It was a very sad day today as I had to have my extra special girl Champion Bellis Dazzle put to sleep. She was suffering from cancerous tumours which were inoperable. She was 9 years old. I will miss her so much, she was precious to me.

10th April 2015
Bellis Tawny had 2 kittens, one male and one female. They are both seal points. Mum and babies doing well.

20th March 2015
Today Damona was put to sleep. She had been suffering from a digestive disorder for several months but was responding well to a change of diet. Sadly over the last few days she very quickly deteriorated. She was just short of her 9th birthday. Damona was an endearing and gentle character who blended in quietly with the other cats and her uncomplicated nature is already much missed.

7th February 2015
Hamish went to the Shropshire Cat Club Show today and won his 3rd CC, which means he is now a Champion! See his show page for more information and pictures.

13th January 2015
Springtime gave birth to her babies this evening - two boys, so boys only this time for both girls.

8th January 2015
Tawny gave birth to two kittens this evening. Sadly the first was still born, but the second, a boy, is large and healthy.

14th December 2014
Both Tawny and Springtime are confirmed in kitten to Hamish. They are due in early January, so fingers crossed that all goes well.

6th December 2014
Today Hamish went to his first show for nearly 3 years and won his second CC. He is now 4 years old, but due to issues with stud tail, he has only just grown enough hair on his tail to consider showing him again. But he was extremely well behaved and was very relaxed. Hopefully his tail will remain in good order and we can go to a few more shows. See his show page for a bit more information on his successful day.

1st July 2014
Bellis Tawny gave birth to 2 male kittens. She is looking after them well.

5th May 2014

11th March 2014

The two cats (see below) who were looking for a new home have found a lovely home with Malcolm. They are settling in well in their new surroundings. Thank you Malcolm for coming to their rescue!

11th January 2014
I have been contacted today by a lady who had two kittens from me 4 years ago. Sadly due to personal circumstances she can no longer keep them and has asked me if I can find them a permanent and loving home. They are neutered and don't have any health or behaviour issues, but are devoted to each other so must go together. If anyone can offer them a home, please contact me by phone on 01270 811078 or email: BellisSiamese@aol.com

Here they are as kittens, I don't have pictures of them as adults:

11th October 2013
It has been a very sad day today. Although this is not cat news, I am reporting it here as many of my friends know how important my horses are to me too. My wonderful mare Italian Secret was put down today, a heartbreaking decision to make, but to prevent her suffering from arthritis, she has now gone to greener pastures. She was a one in a million horse, a pleasure to own and gave me some memorable and special moments over the 26 years I had her. God Bless old girl.


This is the last picture taken of her, in June. She was 32.

11th September 2013

Bellis Sarah had the splint removed from her tail. It has healed exceptionally well and she has been left with a wonderfully straight tail. Here are a couple of photos taken just after the splint was removed:

Many, many thanks to Sarah Gait, the vet from Leonard Brothers Veterinary Centre, who set her tail and did such a great job. Sarah now has a new home with Cheryl and her other Siamese, Lula.

2nd August 2013
Bellis Peggy has been spayed and has recovered very well from her little operation. Here are some photos of Peggy for those of you who have been asking after her:

   

 

Bellis Sarah is also on the mend, her tail is healing extremely well and the splint should only be on for another week. It is healing straight, no kink now, but there is still a lump which may or may not go.

11th July 2013
Bellis Sarah has broken her tail. How it happened is a mystery. It is splinted with 2 cotton buds! Thanks to Sarah the vet at Leonard Brothers Veterinary Practice for her handywork. The dressing is still in place despite Sarah's (the kitten) attempt to remove it along with her brothers who think it's a new toy! So until her tail is fully recovered Sarah (the kitten!) will be staying here for the time being.

I would like to thank Leonard Brothers Veterinary Centre for their attentiveness to Amberleigh whilst she was in their care, in particular Tom Leonard who did all he could to aid her recovery.
