Best Blue Tortie Point
Sire:(CH) Nippondo Homany
Dam: Mypumpkins My-Ling
(CH) Mypumpkins Jewel of Shocho - Siamese Blue Cream (Tortie) Point
Although Jewel was spayed, she was still as spunky as a kitten, and liked to assist the young mothers with the training of their litters. (Sometimes thought they were hers by being a surrogate mom.)
Sire: Shadowstar Hershy Kisses
Dam: Tetris Sassafras
Miss Moonlit Crystal Angel - Blue-eyed White Oriental
Angel came to me when she was 3 years old and was the most affectionate female I have ever owned. I never had the opportunity to have any kittens from Angel despite my Veterinarian telling me she was healthy as there were no signs of poor health. She would conceive, then half way through the pregnancies, re-absorb. She always talked and purred. She was still eating, drinking and walking around until the last 24 hours, then - she was silent. That's when I knew something was wrong. Her necropsy confirmed she died of kidney cancer. Crystal Angel will never be forgotten!
Sire: Lin Su's Samoset of Shocho
Dam: (CH) Wintu Quintessa of Shocho
Born: Nov 27, 1998
Died: Oct 13, 2004
Call name: "Dreamer" - my quiet Siamese
Shocho's Dream Seeker - Siamese Seal Point
In Sept 2003, Dreamer had surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in her mammory glands. Unfortunately, we didn't get it all - it returned and grew more furiously than ever before. It became too far advanced not even surgery would save her. It was with a very heavy heart, she was laid to rest today. She will never be forgotten but we can still carry on her lines through her sons' Shocho's Cavalier and Shocho's Hawkeye of Koblizek. (Note: Cavalier died April 19, 2013 and Hawkeye predeceased him a few years before.)
Sire: Shocho's Mio Mauve
Dam: Shocho's Angel
Born: Sep 15, 1998
Died: Feb 24, 2005
Call Name: "Missi Moo Moo"
Shocho's Mission-Of-Hope - Siamese Lilac Point
Mission had one of the most unique personalties anybody could expect from a cat. She was so friendly, trusting and greeting everybody that came through our doors. She has passed this trademark on to all her kittens. Despite her failing kidneys, she never showed any dispair with her fluid treatments. She had always favoured my husband and was his special cat. Now she can share Heaven with him forever.
Sire:(CH) Shocho's Titan
Dam: Shocho's Choclat Kisses
Born: Sep 24, 2000
Died: Feb 27, 2005
Call Name: "Bugsie"
(CH) Shocho's Miss Ladybug - Siamese Lilac Point
Ladybug died of surgical complications two days after being spayed. She was a very special Lady, and the only whole offspring carrying Choclat Kisses' lineage. Ladybug had no surviving offspring. Read her full story HERE!
Koblizek's Chocolateer of Shocho - Chocolate Point
Sire:(CH) Koblizek's Dakotah
Dam: Koblizek's Petite Bopeep
Born: Dec 10, 2001
Died: Feb 17, 2006
Call Name: "Chockie"
Another beautiful cat lost to this horrific disease called CANCER!
Chocolateer was far too young to die of lymphoma sarcoma (numerous cancer tumors causing his liver to completely shut down) without any early visible signs. Cats are fastidious at hiding their ailments until it is too late. I want to thank the Vets and staff at Glenn Mountain Animal Hospital (Visit Here!) for taking such great care of him during his final days. It was just as hard for Dr. Benipal as for me while I held Chocolateer in my arms for his journey to Rainbow Heaven.
He was a very gentle quiet stud that loved to eat and weighed in at 12 lbs (before putting him on maintenance food like my old Starduster). He was the greatest for novice queens! He never held them with his teeth - just did the job and immediately backed off. His method was very unique. Fortunately, there are females in the breeding program to carry on his lineage, but he'll still be terribly missed since he was the only male chocolate point. Koblizek bloodlines are so well known for that fabulous personality, especially in her males. So, again I say thank you Lois for my second best male, and some day, I'll be back to get another "Great" one from you.
~ Mar 3, 2007~
It has been just over two months since our home was totally destroyed by fire on Nov 28, 2006. We lost all but 2 of the cats and kittens in our breeding program. Osanh Canadian Sunshine, call name Chief, a 15 year old spayed chocolate point (Starduster's daughter) and 11 year old Shocho's Barvarien Cream, call name Pink and the only cream point male and grandson to Jewel, are the only survivors along with the dog Casper. Material things can be replaced, but these special babies cannot. Praise the Lord, we had moved a few cats to the cottage last year where we have high speed cable internet. So from these, we will rebuild our catteries in due time. Although most of these cats are ready for retirement, strange to say, they carry all the lines we lost. It is very difficult to talk about this loss, and thank everyone who has been very kind in giving us clothes etc. and sending us their prayers. It is a new year, the beginning of a new cycle where life goes on and can only get better. God bless our special friends!
~ March 28, 2007 - Poisoned Food ~
I have been using Iams cat/kitten food for nearly 20 years. I have never had any problems with their products until Feb 5th. (Note: All wet cat Food was tainted and spread all over the world.)This day was when my blue eyed white Oriental female kitten died with blood pouring out of her nose. Then on Feb 7th, the second kitten a chocolate point female died of blood pouring out of her mouth, and then on Feb 9th a third kitten died of renal failure - blood pouring out of its rectum. These kittens were fed Iams kitten pouches and canned food. The surviving litter sibling and mother, both blue eyed white Orientals never ate the canned food or pouches, and I didn't know why at that time. To this day, Crystal the mother refuses to eat any canned food. So, I gave this food to Brandi, (Crystal's mother and grandmother to these kittens) my chocolate point female who was going to have a litter of kittens in the next few days. Brandi never ate canned food, since she never liked to receive anything orally in her mouth (she has never been sick a day in her life) I wanted to give her vitamins and liquid calcium to help with her delivery. She ate this food for about a week. Then she started to vomit and her urine had increased to half a litter box full every 12 hours, so I discontinued this food. I had purchased these Iams treats for adults and kittens last November and the canned kitten food was purchased in December. I didn't start using them until the end of January when it was time for Crystal's (Brandi's daughter) kittens to be weaned onto wet food, then the dry. I had contacted my Vet about the 3 kittens that died, and decided not to do a necropsy, as I was now concerned with Brandi (Osanh queen). I had to keep her 6 kittens alive, but we lost 2 within 24 hours of their birth, then her 3rd kitten died on March 27th. This kitten's necropsy pointed to the poison food. Brandi's kidneys were failing her, but because she has always been strong and healthy, my Vet has managed to purge her kidneys and hopefully she will recover. But she will have to remain on kidney food the rest of her life. (Brandi lost her battle with kidney failure on Dec 11, 2007.)
Please monitor your pets for any changes in their health.
Siamese and Orientals do not always show any symptoms until it is almost too late!
Animal lovers are gentle, caring people - the kindness we share returns in countless little joys to warm our hearts with the birth of each new kitten.
Thank You for visiting!
