Emily's Story

Born in Badsworth, Pontefract, but soon moved to a new home as a kitten.  However after a short period with her new owners she returned to Esaya Birmans and became a very successful breeding queen.  Emily's had more kittens than she can care to remember, most of her litters being large ones.  She was an excellent mother and produced some lovely babies.  However at the age of nearly 6 she was ready to move on to a life of leisure.  Spyce at the time needed a friendly feline companion, he'd become rather possessive of me.  Being an experienced Queen and very much able to deal with attention seeking males, it was decided that Emily (his grand-daughter) would come and live with me.  However, as luck would have it, Emily fell pregnant once more.  This final time she only had one kitten ... Esaya Swansong (Butterball as she was nicknamed because she was a cute little round thing!).  As soon as Emily was sure Butterball could look after herself, she was neutered and came to live with myself and Spyce.  Butterball later went on to have one kitten (Esaya Sweetmelody) before being re-homed herself.

As Spyce was progressing in years, and not attending so many shows, I decided to show Emily.  It turned out that Emily surpassed her Grand-father's show career, culminating in achieving the position of Top Seal Point Birman for the Birman Cat Club (show year 2001-2002) and achieving her Grand title at the Chester & North Wales show in August 2002.  At the age of 12 and a half, Emily became the very first Female Neuter Birman to become an Imperial - quite an achievement don't you think  Emily is now approaching her 15th birthday (Jan 2009) and she's still as lively as ever.

What the judges said......

"A strong girl with classic head, well spaced ears, medium head leading to a firm tapering chin, lovely full cheeks, expressive almost round eyes of a lovely even deep blue tone, medium nose with slight profile dip and seal brown leather, her bite is level.  Excellent boning, tone and substance whose lovely type has stood the test of time.  Dense points, full ruff.  Silky coat with warm tonal shading.  Coat was full, sparkling and well prepared.  Shown to advantage and of a very pleasant disposition. I understand she became a "Grand" today.  Congratulations to her owner and breeder."
