Unfortunately with every cattery there are moments of heart Ache and disspear when we lose some of our kids to health issues, age and unforseen issues.
Here are some of my speacial kids who passed away; gone but never forgotten! My Strength, my pride, my loyal friends; may you fly high and free but know you are forever loved and missed!
Thank you for your unconditional love; we love you!
Tr Gr Ch Flamboyant Shimala O'Mayo of Carmandale
Shimalo was the first quality boy I got from Mariaane Nel and the start of my journey in the Cat world in South Africa. This beautiful boy was with me in Zimbabwe and traveled with me on my move down to Durban and was my stability in a time of turmoil.
He was also my learning curve in the show ring and had to endure the days of my ignorance in maintaining my cats; spending hours been groomed in the most fustrating ways!
Thank you little one for always being there with me; the journey was filled with the most incredible memories and I will miss you dearly.
Its because of you; I strive and never give up!
Gr Ch ShakesPurrs Timandra of Carmandale
At the same time I was blessed with Shimala, Timandra came into my life, entrusted to me by Hannelie Roers of ShakesPURRS Persians.
This wonderful girl was a one man's cat and she certainly made sure you knew it!
She often brings tears to my eyes thinking of all the wondeful memories we shared.
Unfortunately she passed away in February 2010 and will miss her dearly.
Thank you Hannelie for this wonderful girl.
Milo was born in January of 2009 and the last baby I bred before taking abreak from the Cat Fancy due to financial issues.
This little man was such a delight and kept me going over that challenging time; thank you my little man as you were the silver lining in the storm!
Unfortunately he passed away shortly after this and will be forever missed.
Carmandale Jack Sparrow
Jack was born in July of 2012 and had everything going for him, character, charisma, looks and was set to wow the judges!
He was such a character and just loved him!
Unfortunately his Mom lay on his leg at birth which created complications as he grew and he sadly passed away shortly after this picture; you were a breath of fresh air my little man and so devastated that you gone!
We love and miss you tones; fly high and free and keep the angels smiling with your happy, carefree attitude! My little Jackiboy!
