Spanish Birman cat bloodline, Bonbón in the Saba/Sábacat Birman kennel

Bonbón Has Arrived To Our Kennel!

Beethoven Johnnataria E (Bonbón) has arrived to our kennel! Bonbón is a Chocolate point birman male kitten.

We’ve been actively searching for 5 months before Bonbón has arrived. It is a huge responsibility in a breeder’s life to choose the kitten that she would dare to trust the entire future of her blood line.

At the end of the day, it is the stud that is so important in a kennel. He is the one that impregnates the queens. He’s the one whose bloodline will be mixed with all the other bloodlines in the kennel. 

 It is an extremely difficult choice in the case of our successful kennel, which has produced Birman kittens that are healthy, very friendly, and have a well-balanced nervous system. 

 

Our Challenges of Choosing Our New Birman Breeder Stud

It doesn’t help when it’s the case of a very rare kind of cat breed, that is bred by few people in the World, and you need to pay special attention to the family relationships, as well. You have to base your decision on photos, videos, and your personal relationships with the other Birman breeders.

With us, all of these facts are overwritten by this “inner voice”, which we base our final decisions on. At the end, my daughter and I together chose Bonbón from Spain in complete agreement.

After making the choice, the execution posed the next challenge. Arranging to bring home a cat from Barcelona to Budapest during COVID was about as complicated as circumnavigating the World twice!!!

At the end, our SPECIAL BOY has arrived! 

 

What Is Bonbón Like?

His blood line includes Spanish and Swedish ancestors. 

His an extremely big and strong kitten, with excellent fur quality. When we first met him in the hotel, he was calm and well-balanced. During our flight (remember, layover and COVID), he was pleasant and embraced the situation. We’ve been looking for him every single day for 5 months to replace Azurro, with my daughter, Anna. At the end, we chose Bonbón, because based on the videos we received from the breeder, we suspected, that he would be this big Teddy bear, waiting to be loved, just like Azurro is. When Birman Bonbón arrived, we were all very happy.

Well…

3 days have passed, and I feel like Bonbón was born here, like I was the one helping him be born, just like the girls that are going to be his mates. This was an unbelievably good feeling. I was surprised, as he was already 6 months old when he arrived. He has such an open, pleasant personality, even among Birman kittens. In this second, he’s sitting next to me on the chair and he’s purring. 

It is as if he’s always been my kitten. 

Our only disagreement is when I’m playing the piano, he’s trying to hunt down my fingers…🙂

The Future Stud- Husband

He’ll be the future partner of the “3 Youngest Queens”.

It’s a lucky situation that Bonbón is the same age as our girls  (Saba Kamil, Saba Lana, Saba Nadine). They’re almost the exact ages and they love playing together, play catch, or chase the “mouse”. 

Bonbón has become an important and integral part of our family. 

He will be able to start his exhibition and breeding career in the Spring of 2022. I hope he will charm the judges with his beauty and kindness. We can’t wait to see his shining personality in his future kittens.🙂

World Champion Azurro Looking for Loving Family

Unfortunately, time has come that I would be looking for a new home for my beautiful,  World Champion Birman stud. 

I still remember well when he arrived. He was almost 6 months old, even that youg age he was much bigger than average. Fearlessly, he crouched in the corner of the hotel bathroom, not daring to come out to eat. It was hard to let go of his trust, harder to befriend me than other Birman kittens. Yet I felt that once he falls in love  with me, he will loves me very much. I waited patiently for the moment and tried to please her. I even asked for advice from one of my cat judge friends who suggested I should speak Spanish to him. The Hungarian language may be too strong for him after Italian, but the Spanish sound is very similar to Italian. Well, that’s how I tried. And it worked! Azzurro calmed down and day by day unfolded his wonderful inner world, his personality, who he really was.

I guessed it, Azzurro has a very big heart. He can love me extremely subtly, not only me, but He was always kind to the girls. It’s very hard to let him go. I want to find the best home, family for him. What I can imagine for his, is either a single woman or a family with older children. A family that is not too loud, not in a hurry, living such a clean, serene life. Azzurro is also an extremely calm, lovely cat. He would never scratch or blow on anyone. It can only be an indoor cat, not to wander freely outside in the garden, I certainly won’t let him out the street. On the other hand, if someone had the opportunity to build a safe catwalk enclosed in the garden, he would most certainly be happy.

But the most important thing is not the big square and the catwalk, but the love you give. The Birman breed is basically an extremely loving breed, but some of them are even more so. Azzurro is just like that.

I am waiting for the application of an owner who recognized him for Her cat based on the description. Who cam and wants to give Azzurro the edge quality I mean here for the Royal Canin food, vitamins – what He deserves and what he used to get from me. After neutering, He can move into His new home in excellent health and condition.

It is also important for him does not have to adapt to another animal, as he is already 6 years old, I will not give him to an owner with another dog or cat. I wish for him a home where he can be the only pet where He will be the CAT. 

A few sentences about why I have to make this difficult decision again and  again. Unfortunately, like in everything,  in breeding has many downsides too. Perhaps this is one of the hardest times to let go of the cats I’ve spent so much time with, so many shared experiences with. Especially a boy with whom we traveled the world with us. But unfortunately, I can’t keep all the kittens  which were born inmmy home, nor can I keep the adults who are no longer actively involved in breeding. Azzurro is neutered for a very practical reason.

With one exception, he is the father or grandfather of all my females.

Because I only want to work with my own bloodline cats, nor do I want to inbreed them. The only way for the girls to stay and occasionally get a new male into the bloodline. That’s why He came to me at that time. Many may wonder why I don’t keep my cats neutered? Anyone who has ever visited me knows I have a huge interior and exterior for the comfort of ourselves and our animals. Nevertheless, cats require time spent with them separately and many of them are tense with each other so they live in separate rooms. With each cat, the tension between them grows and the time spent loving, caring for and playing with one cat runs out. In addition, it is now a proven fact that like all living things, cats are extremely poor at tolerating stress. For the cats, the presence of each other can be a significant stress factor. By this I do not mean the two pet cats in a family, but us, the breeders, the kennels.

The health risk also increases exponentially with the number of cats.

Yes, I kept a neutered kitten for myself, which I won’t let go, but unfortunately I can’t keep them as much as I want.

By now, I have plenty of experience feedback from owners who have taken a neutered adult kitten from me to be able to integrate beautifully and live a truly full happy life in their new home.
