Welcome to our family cattery ! Homepage  



Here is Ultima Demisovna, the last-born of Demis'kittens,
peering through her mom's paws the day she was born.

See all the pics of the kitten's evolution on the 2023 litters' page.
They now all live in their new families.

Demis Silvaliya would have been 2 years in August. Due to the start of a bowel obstruction, he underwent a surgery but the vets discovered his belly was completely colonized by an hyper-agressive tumor, which was already calcified at some place and widely spread. His chances of survival were at most a few months with chemiotherapy. I decided that he be not waken up, to avoid him the pains of a (short) afterlife of poor quality. He is greatly missed, for he was such a sweet boy !

Pépite de la Chacolaterie and Demis Silvaliya had four ruddy babies, three males and one female.

Edelweiss (little downy flower) has always been a tiny yet courageous cat. Born in 2009, she survived a long time to what seems to be a lymphoma, but her qualiy of life lessened in the last year. She was put to sleep after a long hug on my knees in the sunshine.

our cats

Brownie did not wake up this morning, curlep up as usual by my side on the bed. No warnings, no cry, heart must have stopped during his sleep not long ago, his body was still warm... It's very hard for me, with Alaska they really were my closest and sweetest cats... But he had the death we all dream of, with an unaltered quality of life up to the very end.

Alaska has gone since Feb. 6th, she would have been 14 in March. She remained so beautiful, so kind, ever so present all her life...
She had undergone surgery in December 2017 for a mammary tumor. This surgery enabled her to have a one-year respite of good life quality, unfortunately the tumor came back much too soon in a fulgurant way.

Let me introduce myself: Marie-Bernadette Pautet, aka "Babette", telecom engineer, mother of 3 children and...
... foster mother of 6 somalis !

My path to happiness involves living and working among these beautiful creatures who constantly tell me, through their eyes and by their behaviour, the trust and love they grant to their human family. This represents for me the real truth of a family cattery, where I am able to live among my somalis 24 hours a day.

This is me with Tikky on my shoulders,
during a cat show in 2004
