Octavius, a lilac bi-colour. He is just 9 months old in this picture and is going to be a fantastic addition to developing the chocolate and lilac lines. He has been shown twice and achieved three 1st's at both shows, one at the Kentish Cat Show and the other at The British Ragdoll Cat Show. He received his first CC at the Maidstone and Medway show in December. He has now received his second CC at the Southern Counties Cat Club Show and his third at the Croydon Cat Club show and has therefore, received his Championship status at just 11 months old. An absolutely magnificient achievement. A big thank you to Julie for allowing me to have such a gorgeous boy. Octavius is now a Grand Champion and retired from the show scene to stay at home and help look after his offspring.
(Thundercats Sonic Knight x Gladtidings Full of Promise)
Fly is the newest member of the Gladtidings cattery and what an absolute stunner he is turning into. Fully Traditional, home-bred, blue colourpoint boy with a pedigree that traces all the way back to Josephine herself, with no outcrossing whatsoever, he is an important addition to preserving these diminishing, precious lines. An imposing, muscular boy with silky, flowing, snowy white coat, fantastic profile and deep blue eyes . A real purr machine who absolutely loves attention and nuzzles you to continue making a fuss of him. A truly beautiful, soppy boy who is only 6 months old in this photo. Fly has started off his show career with a bang. Achieving first in the breed class, first in the Best of Breed and two firsts in the side classes. To top the day even further, he achieved Best Semi Long Haired Kitten in Show at the East Sussex Cat Club Show at Maidstone. Well done Fly! Fly has received his first Challenge Certificate at the Three Counties Show in Southampton, the first time shown as an adult. Fly has subsequently been shown at the Bucks, Oxon and Beds Show and The Colourpoint Show at Rivermead, Berkshire and achieved a Challenge Certificate at each show. He is now a Champion at the tender age of 11 months. Dragonfly has now achieved Grand Champion status having acquired the titles in 4 straight shows. This was at the Maidstone and Medway Cat Club Show, Eastern Loghair and Semi Longhair Cat Club and the Capital Long Hair Cat Association shows where he beat all other semi and long haired breeds in his class. A fantastic achievement for a 15 month old boy. He will now continue to the Imperial Classes.
