Fabulous looking, cute as can be and full of
attitude...but put him in a room with a girl and he
turns to Jell-O! He just can't seem to handle the
initial "meet and greet" that so often involves a bit of
hissing with the occasional (female) paw across the
chops, type of behavior. With that, he goes to a
corner, or hides in a cubby hole and will not come out
for anything! No matter how hard we try, we just
can't seem to get across to him that this is just her
way of saying "Hi there big boy... Why don't you come
over and see me sometime". :-)
Still...even with this
"problem", he is wonderful. Very outgoing, loves
to be cuddled and certainly has the Norwegian attitude.
With the boys, he will stand his own, though I suspect
he prefers to disarm any situations with humor, as he
really does not have the bulk to back up a paw (unlike
William). He has terrific markings, fabulously
proportional boning (though slightly on the small side)
and a ruler straight nose... Just have to get him with a
girl who'll let him take the lead. :-)

Red Tabby with White
is a strikingly handsome boy who is "ALL" boy.
Beyond the marking behavior, any time he is around a
girl in heat, he carries himself with "air" of knowing
exactly who he is and knowing he looks good... With the
"performance" to back up the claim. :-)
Initially, he was to be breed with Mina,
but after repeated tries, nothing seemed to work for
them. Recently (Dec. 08), he had the opportunity
to be with Olivia and things "may" have taken. If
so, we will be extremely excited about their kittens.
Though "ALL" boy, Gimli is one of the
most loving cats you could every come across. When
entering his area, which he shares with Klaus, he
immediately starts to chirp, purr and wants to be on
you. When you pick him up, he will push himself up
against you, burry his snoz under your neck, knead his
paws and PURR... Very Loudly!
Physically, he is excellent. A
fabulously straight nose, good ear set / angle, an
excellent body, with heavy boning and being a Red Tabby
with White, very striking. Had we had the
opportunity to show him, we would have, but his breeder
did not wish him to be shown, which we absolutely
His children though... Oh... do we
look forward to them!!! :-)

He demands "his" chair!!
CFA Grand Premier & Regional Winner Lothar Winston
Premier Lars Winston
Lars and Lothar are
(obviously) brothers. Though neutered, we include
them here as they are continuing on with being
exhibited at shows. They are both wonderful kids
who are about as lovable and cuddly as you could ever want.
Together, they are able to deal with most anything, but
if apart, they become uncomfortable, so we show them
In January, 2009
Lothar reached the CFA title of "Grand Premier" at the
Quad City Cat Club Show in Moline, IL (a good show to
attend if you are in the area!!). Though Lothar
reached his title before his brother, Lars helped a
great deal by being there with him throughout, offering
him support and companionship during the shows they
attended. With each there to support the
other, they have handled the shows quite well and
readily welcome all visitors.
Update - 4/10
Lars and Lothar have agreed
to separate a bit... Lars really does not like
going to shows, while Lothar seems to enjoy it.
So... For the time being, Lars will keep an eye on
things at home, while Lothar struts his stuff, on their
behalf, at shows for awhile.
Update - 4/11
The end of the 2010 show
season is here and the final numbers are in...
Lothar has earned his "Regional Winner" title!!
Our first one!!
