    The entire indoor gang are here. From the left, Tia, Dennis, Sadie, and then the kittens. The bicolour is a girl and staying - she's called Dora.

    Got one of the Havana kittens on his or her own this morning. I've no idea which! The eye colour is better in life than in the photo.

    Many thanks for responding to my request. I hope you don't think I am too demanding but a pic of the other one as well would be brilliant. They are lovely kittens. The Siamese looks sweet too but I don't think I have seen a pic of him/her looking at the camera.

    The Siamese is very sweet, a great personality, but not great type though fantastic eye colour.

    I will see what I can do, camera battery is charging at present...

    When I was looking for a kitten 8 years ago a friend sent me photos of gorgeous Siamese looking black and white cats. I lost the photos and could never find them again. What I saw was a Dora

    Oriental Bicolours. Dora is chocolate & white. My friend Pina breeds lovely black & whites, that's where Sadie came from.

    Thank you. I like 'not great type.' Have you seen pics of Roland and Oz the two generations between Gam and Basil? It is a bit hard to see where Basil comes from. It is quite an old pedigree without what are now called typy Siamese.

    No, not see photos of those cats. Better ask Mary about Roland, she adored him so might have some photos. For my own preference Dennis is fantastic. No dropping of the ears, not super-low set, eyes not too deep, all in all I love his type. Dora's head has a nice equilateral triangle.

    Anyway the camera's batter had charged so...

    I love to see pics of kittens. I have a pic of Roland somewhere but he was messing about in Mary's kitchen when we went to see him so not a good pic. I will send you a pic of Oz. I don't expect you want a pic on this thread.

    They are doing the same to Norwegians as Siamese / Orientals with ears falling off the sides of their heads which messes with the eye set.


    Norwegians should have an equilateral triangle head with large open high set ears. Unfortunately the new typey Norwegians have an equilateral triangle with an ear placement lower than your cats. I wouldn’t exactly call that high set.
