Chartreux are calm, observant, intelligent, non-aggressive, affectionate and good with children and other animals, cats or dogs!
Thank you to the Humphries family for sending through this beautiful photo of Phoebe (dog) and Paddington (from Maddison’s litter last year)
In their words… “He is big, but so beautiful. He is always admired by visitors and Phoebe adores him. They play together so well and she’s so tolerant (even when he’s pouncing on her head from the sofa ?). A perfect match for us all. Thank you xx”
Nothing give me more pleasure than hearing a cat/kitten purr ….. it makes me feel extremely contented and exceptionally happy! ? … and look at the health benefits …. even more reason to buy a Chartreux, you only need to ask my new owners!
Our first lovely family came to visit the kittens today.
We meet the family back in May at the National Pet Show at the Excel in London where we were exhibiting the Chartreux as a breed and they feel in love with the Chartreux (not hard!) They had already made the decision before the birth that they would like to have two kittens, a boy and a girl. Luckily Maddison had one gorgeous boy (‘Napoleon’ Solo) and I’m not ashamed to say we have totally fell in love with him too!
But today they had the exceptionally hard decision to choose their girl kitten.
We are extremely happy to announce that they have choosen the girl with the ‘eyes’ collar – Napoleon and her get on so well ??
Just like human babies, all kittens are born with blue eyes. This is for the same reason as in humans − because the brown pigment melanin has not yet been deposited in the irises of the eye, or darkened by exposure to ultraviolet light. When it comes to other kitten facts about the body, it is a very different story. While kittens have similar eyes, their little noses are the equivalent of a human fingerprint, and no two noses are ever quite the same. Kittens also have a stronger and more dominant paw, just like we have a stronger hand. Interestingly, though, in kittens the difference is often gendered, and female kittens are usually right-pawed while their male siblings tend to be left-pawed.
