My passion for cats first started while living and studying in Italy, when I got my first kitten, a common domestic cat named Moustache, from a lady who had a fish shop in Rimini. I had never known any cats until then, but wanted to learn all about them. A year later I had other two domestic cats, Mandy and Pallina. All my domestic cats have passed away by now. Only over a decade after having my first domestic cat, had I the courage of having two pedigree cats: Kisulin Senja ( Miina ) and Kisulin Minttu ( Minttu), both European short-hair cats, who almost accidentally ended up being members of my family. It was through them that showing cats found my interest. Unfortunately Miina and Minttu didn’t like being shown, and so promised them never to take them to another show.
I always dreamed of was a Devon Rex cat. I had been dreaming of having
one for over a decade, but I quite didn’t know where to get one and for
having waited for one for such a long time my expectations had a very
high standard. I was willing to wait even longer just to have the
perfect kitten. And eventually I did. In 2005 a Devon Rex female caught
my eye in a show. It was exactly how I had imagined a Devon Rex should
be. I waited a couple of years for this beautiful female to have a
litter, and finally in April 2007 Tikrun Kis Cica, the most wonderful tortie pointed kitten moved to live with us. She has proved to
be much more than I had never dared to expect. She is beautiful, she
has a sweet and good temper and she immediately fit in our family. In
January 2008 Miffy - Infracat's Murphy's Red - made a welcomed addition
to our family. Where there is one Devon Rex there will be another one,
as we have seen it happen. Since then our family has grown of Cica's
kitten Avariel Briciola ( Lola ) who was born in June 2009 and in
December 2009 we had a the addition of Welsh female Rogus Tigerella
Temptress ( Lilli ), and two more Avariel kittens, Cica's granddaughter Latte, and Lilli's daughter Huli.
