Every cattery had to start at some point and we were very honoured to have started our cattery with some amazing bloodlines from some incredible well known reputable cattery's who we are eternally grateful to and were our mentor-ship began.
A big thank you to Mariaane Nel of Flamboyant Persians & Hannelie Rorhs of ShakesPurrs who sold us our first babies. Christelle Horne of Balouchi Persians who assisted me with Whiskers Up Dynamite who was my foundation boy and who stood by me when times were tough; you were a light in the dark and will never forget what you did for us: thank you! Sharon and Helene Kelly of Helshar Persians who gave us such amazing support, friendship and incredible lines; you are both legends!
Cathroy; for all your support and love and for being there when we most desperately needed you! Thank you my friends.
And to all the amazing friendships, support and love of the KZN Cat Fancy, a huge thank you! Times have changed and we have grown so much since then but our memories live on and we are forever grateful to each and every one of you.
Here are our cats from the past that build Carmandale Persians and the foundation to great years ahead.
