Edelweiss de la Chacolaterie Homepage  

Edelweiss (pedigree) is a daughter of Une Pomponnette (fawn silver somali) and Arakis de Buffavand, chocolate somali.
She was born in september 2009.
Here she is, with mom "Pompon" and her litter brother Eclair :

Edelweiss grows with a lot of elegance and is a living reminder of her so-loved aunty Bouboule,
as much in the softness of her expression as in the volume of her fur.

Spring 2010 : "Follow my white plume!..."

Winter has come, and she discovers snow together with Brownie:

She is a tiny female, but well proportioned and very lively.
She was mated to Brownie in Spring 2011, and gave birth to 3 beautiful kittens on July 27, 2011 :
two black silver females and a ruddy boy. Go and see all their pictures on their page.

Since 2016, she had intestinal problems (probably lymphoma).

Though she still ate well (but very slowly), she became very skinny.
So she had her spots : the heater (when central heating was on) and a warming basket on my bed..
Her quality of life lessened during the last months, and she was put to sleep on April 4, 2023,
after a very long stay on my lap in the warm sun of this spring afternoon.
