    I think @colliemerles has a cinnamon and a fawn unless the pic is misleading.

    sorry the colours don't look very good, I took them quickly as I didn't want to upset mum, and I took them with my camera phone, the brown one is chocolate, the other one is lilac, also have blue and two tabbies that I thought black but may be brown, that look like twins. Last year I had my first 3 litters, but had complications, with a C-section, then peritonitis and a ruptured mastitis. I did feel like quitting, but after talking to some of my breeder friends decided to carry on this year. so I am glad this years first litter have all arrived safely and all is well so far.

    thank you lymorelynn , as you know yourself when you loose your babies its so upsetting, and you really feel like giving up. But when I had emails and letters of thank yous from the kitten owners from last year, and lots of pictures to say how well they were doing, some even saying they may come back for a second kitten, it then makes you feel proud and gives you the strength to carry on .

    Oh My! Black Tabby BLHs! I spent a happy hour googling those a bit back to see if they existed as I thought they would be gorgeous and look forward to their growing up pictures :)
    Congratulations.

    They are lovely, and the photo of the chocolate shows the pink paw pad beautifully.

    Aaawwwwwwwww! They are absolutely gorgeous! Such sweet little faces! And so bonny looking :)

    I had BSH Silver Spotted and Silver Tabby in the past (RIP), and they were fabulous cats. But am a total pushover for the longhaired variant British.!

    I am in love with your kitties! :)
