Silverstorm Bengals shares its beautiful home in Snowdonia National park with The Welsh Mountain zoo high above Conway Bay. The zoo is home to a very beautiful and important breeding pair of Snow Leopards. The zoo is currently holding a crowdfund raising campaign to raise £200,000 for a wonderful new enclosure for their snow leopards.
Silverstorm Bengals have pledged £100. Please think about donating or choose an reward by pledging an amount. All details can be found here: THE SILK ROAD PROJECT
“The Silk Road Project aims to build state of the art accommodation for one of the world’s most vulnerable big cat species, while also forging connections with the world’s most important growth economy – China. By helping to build our new snow leopard enclosure you can be part our most ambitious and important project to date. We want to prepare for the next 50 years. And with your help, we know we can do it.
The project will see completely new accommodation for our snow leopards, creating a representation of the mountainous regions in which this endangered species lives. The Silk Road will forge links with China and the Himalayan Mountains exploring the Chinese culture, language, environment and species that originate from there.
The new snow leopard home will be designed to offer visitors a nose to nose visual experience through glass, whilst an elevated walkway will journey around the site, offering panoramic views across the Zoo and to the Carneddau Mountains.
My home bred kitten Luna attended her 1st TICA show run by the London cat show, part of a family pet show, in Manchester last Saturday.
Its been some time since I last went to a show and it was lovely to see old friends and new!
I am thrilled with her results Luna winning 3 Best of breed, and 2 best of breeds and was Best kitten twice in finals and also 5th best kitten.. I would like to say a special thank you to judge Steven Meserve for awarding Luna her Best kitten finals, and recognizing how hard it is to produce such a clear untarnished coat in a silver. He commented on her crazy contrast, glitter and muscular structure.
Luna and Ravi were side by side with James Brown and a Street cat named Bob who also attended the pet show! Here they are together signing his books.
He has been attending quite afew shows in China lately with his owner Rongly Li, and has been doing really very well. What a handsome boy he is, just like his father Otto and grandfather Regional winner and Supreme Grand-champion Silverstorm The Maharajas Cat. His extremely laid back temperamant no doubt helps, as you can see sitting up to eat is just too much effort!
This little boy is one of my spring kittens. He is a silver F5, which means he is 5 generations away from an Asian Leopard Cat. The name of this particular Asian Leopard cat is ‘New Horizons Leopole’. I think he is absolutely beautiful, and of the palest silver colour which is just breathtaking. I don’t think i will be able to let him go. Watch this space for updates on him!
My new Christmas litter are opening their eyes to lots of sparkle!
I am so glad that i kept this beautiful daughter from Rajah. Taking after her father she has wondeful wild type and muscular structure, and those eyes! Those fiery tigers eyes just glow from out of her monotone silver shades. Simply stunning.
We are thrilled with Otto first babies, Himalaya is the proud mother.
Silver lining has beautiful big outlined clouded rosettes, and wild expression. He will hopefully be producing some stunning kittens for us in 2017. Silver lining comes to us from our good friend Gaynor at Queenanne cats.
We can’t wait to welcome our stunning new boy to Silverstorm. He has a pale silver background, perfect outlined and contrasted Snow Leopard rosettes. Combined with wild expression and type he will bring so much to our programme.
A big thank you to our good friend Gaynor at Queenanne cats.
Rajah loved this photo shoot with some of his many rosettes. I am sure he understands that he has won them. He is 17th Best short-hair cat in Western Europe, Best silver Bengal and 3rd Best silver Bengal in the world 2012-2013.
