We bred Colourpoints (Himalayans) from 1995 until 1998, although
we no longer have kittens. At the moment we have twelve cats, including seven
Persians. However, we do sometimes have Persians for rehoming, through our
links with Feline, a cat-rescue organisation based in Luton.
Colourpoints have pale bodies and darker 'points' - ears, face,
legs and tail - like the Siamese. They have long hair, short, cobby legs and
blue eyes for life. They are incredibly laid back - some of our kittens would
play with the vacuum cleaner!
Tina has been rescuing cats and kittens in the Luton area for many
years, but has recently stopped, although she might still be tempted to rescue
the odd pedigree! We now live in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, in the UK.
