The 2014-2015 Show Season


The 2014-2015 Show Season started out on a high note and finished really well. GP, RW Katsmith One Track Mind (Solo) granded in 1 show at the Southern Regional show in June; this was the 15th grand for GC Katsmith Dream On, DM (Marco) and the final grand needed for Marco to accomplish the title of Distinguished Merit. I’d like to thank everyone who granded cats out of Marco; Michele Lukic, Mary Kolencik, Cathy Kennedy & Linda Haslow, Pauline Bratt and Virginia Wheeldon.
With the help of Mary Kolencik GC, RW Katsmith All-of-Me (Ollie) granded in August and went on to end the season as CFA’s 2nd Best Colorpoint Shorthair, CFA’s Best lynx point Colorpoint Shorthair, the Southern Region’s 25th Best Cat and the Southern Region’s Best Colorpoint.
In September Solo went to live with Venus DeVoe and the cats of Dynamicat. Venus continued to show Solo who ended the season CFA’s 3rd Best Siamese in Premiership and the Southern Region’s 12th Best Cat in Premiership.

The 2013-2014 Show Season


Still working on Marco’s DM; but we are close. GC Katsmith Kamora of Thaifong granded in May, GC Katsmith Boys Round Here (Hero) granded in October and went to live with the beautiful cats of Thaifong and GC Katsmith Spellbound (Sara) granded in March; all 3 cats were sired by GC Katsmith Dream On (Marco) which brings the DM countdown to 14. Sara went on to end the season as 3rd Best Colorpoint Shorthair in the Southern Region and 6th Best Nationally.
Both Lola and Jessy had kittens in the summer and kitten from both girls will be shown in the new season.
In 2013 CFA implemented a new award "The Cat Fanciers’ Association, Inc. Cattery of Distinction"; with 22 Katsmith grands I was awarded with a Tier I title.


The 2012-2013 Show Season


2013 was supposed to be all about Ava. GC, RW Katsmith Electric Avenue (Ava) granded at the Southern Regional show in June and we hit the road; unfortunately we only made it to 11 shows before she decided she’d rather have babies. Her last show was December 1, 2012 and I just hoped she had enough points to achieve a Regional Win. When the season ended Ava was the Southern Region’s 22nd Best Cat and CFA’s 2nd highest scoring Colorpoint Shorthair.
GC Katsmith What Ever Lola Wants (Lola) granded in November and GC Katsmith Bubba of SaShai (Bubba) granded in March; both cats were sired by GC Katsmith Dream On (Marco) which brings his DM countdown to 11.
I added CH Wi-Wyn Avalon of Katsmith to my bevy of beauties; thank you Sherri for her.
Jessy and Kiki all produced beautiful Siamese kittens; and there are now Katsmith Siamese living in Sweden, Canada & Massachusetts. Ava’s kittens were born in February and I’m looking forward to showing them in the 2013-2014 season.

GP Penelane Will I Am, Penelane "Pinky" Pinkerton, Penelane Johnny Rocket & Penelane Sookie Stackhouse were all shown during the 2010-2011 season. Thanks to Melanie, Michelle, Mary and Cathy & Linda!

The 2009-2010 Show Season


We didn’t show much this season but cat’s from Roxy’s first litter GC Katsmith Marathon (Marina) & GS Katsmith Dream On (Marco) granded over the summer and 2 kittens from Roxy’s second litter GC, RW Katsmith Glitter in the Air (Ari) and CH Katsmith Milargo (Milo) were 1st & 2nd highest scoring Siamese kittens at the CIS. Roxy was there as well and was 2nd best Siamese in Championship.

GC, RW Katsmith Glitter in the Air, shown by Debi Stevenson was CFA 2nd highest scoring Siamese Kitten and the Southern Region’s 17th Best Kitten, I am proud to say that this is the first “home-grown” Katsmith Regional Winner. Ari granded quickly at the end of the season and is living with Debbi and the cats of Shimasu.

Ari’s littermates CH Katsmith Milargo (Milo) and CH Katsmith Mamma Mia (Mia) attained the title of Champion.

In addition to Roxy’s litter, Emmy & Marco had a litter of kittens and Katsmith Wake Me Up Before You Gogo, a chocolate lynx Colorpoint Shorthair will be shown and will eventually take his dad’s (Rambo) place in my breeding program.



The 2008-2009 Show Season


Roxy did it again! After having a litter of kittens in May 2008 GC, RW Mezetique Roxy of Katsmith returned to the show ring in September. She ended the 2008 – 2009 season as CFA’s 3rd Best Siamese (National Breed Win) and the Southern Region’s 9th Best Cat (Regional Win). She was able to accomplish all this in only 16 shows/101 rings. She was also Best Siamese at the CFA International Cat Show (CIS) in November 2008 making all 6 finals. This is Roxy’s 2nd Regional Win; she was 7th best kitten in the North Atlantic Region in the 2007 - 2008 Season and CFA's 2nd best Siamese Kitten.
This breed win is very special win because Roxy shares the spotlight with her cousin GC, RW, BW Shimasu's En Vogue of Haute-Ming (Joi) who ended the season as Best of Breed Siamese. Joi’s mother CH Katsmith Amara of Shimasu and Roxy’s father GC Katsmith El Morocco of Elorac are litter mates.

Roxy’s kittens CH Katsmith Marathon (Marina) & CH Katsmith Dream On (Marco) were 2nd & 3rd highest scoring Siamese kittens at the CIS.

I acquired CH Naobie Sweet Emotion of Katsmith, a lilac lynx point Colorpoint Shorthair female. Emmy is the granddaughter of GC Elorac Across the Stars of Katsmith and I’m very proud to have her in my breeding program. CH Sutton-Meows Allison of Katsmith went to live in NJ with Carole and the cats of Elorac. I spayed and retired CH Katsmith Bicycle Built for Two. Roxy’s offspring CH Katsmith Dream On (Marco) & CH Katsmith Marathon (Marina) as well as CH SuttonMeows Allison of Katsmith and CH Naobie Sweet Emotion of Katsmith attained the title of Champion

My thanks to Céline Ménard (Naobie) for the lovely Emmy.

The 2007-2008 Show Season


This past season was a very exciting one for me because GC, RW Mezetique Roxy of Katsmith is my first Regional Win for a kitten. Roxy ended the season as the 7th best kitten in the North Atlantic Region and CFA’s 2nd highest scoring kitten for the 2007-2008 season. She was also the second best chocolate point Siamese in Championship in the NAR.

Roxy is a chocolate point female out of GC Katsmith El Morocco of Elorac and GC, RW MVAble Takira of Mezetique. Roxy was born in Mezetique’s first litter and follows her mother as a RW in Region 1. Roxy finished up her kitten career and granded quickly just before I moved to Florida. She is now retired from the ring and will present me with her first litter in May.

I acquired CH SuttonMeows Allison of Katsmith, a blue point Siamese female, and Shimasu Sedona of Katsmith went back to live at Shimasu. I spayed and retired Katsmith Touch-of-Gray, my last Oriental Shorthair, from now on I plan on concentrating on Siamese and Colorpoints.

GC, RW Mezetique Roxy of Katsmith earned the title of Grand Champion & Regional Winner, while CH SuttonMeows Allison of Katsmith attained the title of Champion.

Thanks to Melissa Horn (Mezetique) for trusting me with Roxy. And Deb Fagerstrom (SuttonMeows) for the sweet Allison.
