Kittens in their new homes

Natalija and Helen are owned by 3 wonderful babies from Minerva’s  1st litter. They are such fantastic owners and such caring people. These cats literally have everything they could ever want and are spoilt rotten. I am very lucky too, to be able to hear about the babies so regularly is a dream and I feel so happy! As you can see I receive many regular photos and updates, a breeders dream!

We must also say a well done to all 3 of these Tonks who did extremely well at the Tonkinese Breed show and brought home many firsts! They also all received their merit certificates!

These two lucky girls now named Saba & Suki are already extremely well settled. They are already ruling the roost and being spoilt rotten! Apparently they love riding around in a dolls pram, pinching everyone’s breakfasts and generally being little monkeys… but what Tonks aren't?!  They are wonderful companions for the entire family! Such lucky girls!

Ella loves helping dry her mum after a shower and has a purr like a motorbike!

Two of Sphinx’s kittens are very lucky to have gone to a wonderful home in the black country and even more special, a relation of the owners of Fezziwig & Jellicle! So this means that feline Aunty and Uncle get to see their neices! Here they are enjoying Christmas altogether. They are absolutely adored and totally spoilt by their Dad!

The next two of Sphinx’s kittens made a VERY special one off journey with their new family…..

Raina and Erika came all the way from Norway  to meet our Tonkinini’s. Raina and I met through our love of Tonkinese several years ago and since the death of her beloved Kaja wanted 2 more tonks but there are none in Norway.

So after a huge amount of planning they came to the UK to collect their babies. They spent 2 nights with us so that the kittens could get really used to them. As you will see from the photos below they were a huge hit, especially Erika.

On the 3rd day we packed the babies bags and I drove them all to Heathrow. We made sure that everything was as perfect as possible, the babies were given Zyclene for several days before and a calmer on the day. We had a litter tray stop at Heathrow (compliant babies obliged)  Raina had also made sure they had the best airline carrier possible, thanks also to other kind Tonkinese friends.

The babies then flew in the cabin with Raina and Erika to Norway, a long journey, over 13hrs in total consisting of 3 different flights but they were absolutely good as gold and exceeded all our expectations. It was the HUGEST relief to know they had landed safely as I had worried about this day since they were born but all went without a hitch. Special thanks to our wonderful vet, Kat who prepared them so well.

Anyway… a very happy ending, the two tonks are now in Norway and just loving every minute of their perfect new life. They are spoiled completely rotten already and loved to the moon and back! It was worth it all to send them to such a perfect home where they will want for nothing.
