Faran lives since Okotber 2018 at Suzanne Versluis.




Faran was bought in co-ownership with cattery Of Kymaya's Place, cattery Adia's and our cattery. Faran will only be used within this collaboration.

After all the setbacks with our previous males, we had no room (emotional) within our family for a new male. So what to do now. Then the idea arose of a joint tomcat, a male in co-ownership :-) Together with Suzanne Versluis of cattery Of Kymaya's Place and Diana IJpelaar of cattery Adia's, we started looking for a male that fits all our 3 catteries. That quest was ultimately successful with Faran.

Faran is a black silver blotched (just like our Ice was), has a nice head and was a promises for the future (for which we will have to wait calmly and patiently ;-)).
In terms of pedigree a nice addition to our cats. Before his arrival in the Netherlands he was tested on blood group (A), PKDef (N/N), collor point (C/C) and Agouti (A/A, A/a was what we hoped for, but not a deal breaker). The other tests will follow when he is old enough. We hope Faran will shine some sunlight on our male ownerships again!

Faran is a lovely hugger, a clown and super athlete. Jumps from sitting just 1.5 meters into the air. He is doing well in the group at Suzanne.
We will follow his developments closely full of expectation.

In January 2020 Faran's first kittens (together with Lemon) were born. 4 beautiful kittens who are developing well. They are only 5.5 weeks now, so we enjoy them and watch how they develop further!
The combination with Selima and Blue also produced 4 beautiful kittens per litter. At our co-owners catteries Faran has also managed to "produce" 4 kittens per litter. Almost all litters 3 males 1 female, with 1 exception haha.

His daughters Berka's Bubbels (from Berka's Blue Aurora) and Berka's Harley Quinn (from Selima or Kymaya's Place) have stayed with us.
