Jerry's story

Jerry was bred by my dear friend Maartje Schoenmaker of Alyona Russian Blues, over in the Netherlands.  I hadn't been intending to get another boy so soon - then saw Jerry's photo, and fell in love!  Just to prove it was meant to be, Maartje had been over visiting me and completely fallen for Ziva's son Bertie, who I had been telling myself very firmly could not stay, hard though it was to make that decision.  A fair exchange to make - one adorable purr-bomb for another adorable purr-bomb, which also made it so much easier to part with Bertie as well.

As well as his stellar-quality purr, Jerry also has the most fantastic coat and a very healthy appetite: a combination that makes him infinitely cuddly and squishy - he is a joy.  Jerry is a very sociable boy, settling in with my cats as if he had been born here.  He now lives with my other boys, and is as happy playing with them as he was with the girls when he was a kitten. He also likes to ride on my shoulders when I am playing with the boys as well as frolicking around with his pal Dukey.

Jerry has a very interesting pedigree, combining old classic UK lines through his dad, Gr Ch Kerwil Scryabin Krivak, including Stari, Sashova and Zhivago - plus, some lovely Australian lines through his mum, International Champion Alyona Bella Barinya.  Bella might have come to live with us if she hadn't bonded so completely with her breeder, so it was wonderful to get one of her kittens.  Jerry produced an amazing seven mini-Squidges in his first-ever litter with Jingle and their babies are as delightful as their parents! All our mini-Squidges are so sweet, silly, sociable and just so much fun to have around. Although his 'official' pet name is Jerry I have to be honest and admit that he more often gets called Squidge, and I am incredibly proud of all his mini-Squidges, children and grandchildren.  We are hoping for equally adorable great-grandchildren in 2018 - fingers crossed!

Thank you again to Maartje for this special boy, who can always make me smile :-)
