Flamenco litter 2008                                              Stays with us!


Señor Matador               Black smoke                   TUA ns                           Pedigree


Señor Matador came first, all black. No white or anything - just black. He was in a hurry and arrived after just one hours labour. He ist the biggest kitten and the strongest. When he is hungry the other kittens are just pushed aside from the nipples. I am hungry he says.


But after a few days he started to show that he is a black smoke, ie black silver. White at the base of the hair. It will be exiting to see how light in colour he will get. His half-sister Black Magic in the Colour litter was much darker than Matador while being a kitten. Now she is a beautiful black smoke. See pictures of her under Colour Litter 2007.


Matador was given his name Señor Matador because it rimes. Also bullfighting and flamenco has a long common history. The matador often inspires the flamenco dancer to new moves.


Matador will stay with us. We have gotten attached to each other.


Matador is available for stud service. Please contact me if you are interested.








We have spent a wonderful summer in our summer house close to Hörby. All the cats have been able to roam around outside having a great time.


Zorro even managed to get a mouse even if he was on a leach.


Now we are waiting to see if anyone is interesting to us him as stud. That would be very nice.



Matador, aka Zorro, celebrating midsummer 2009 in our garden. He is very good with the leach and loves taking long walks with our daugther.




Matador is now called Zorro by us.

He is 5 months old and almost as big

as his mother Bizzy.
