21.6.2018 Plans for kittens after a break... Wish you a very nice summer!
22.4.2018 The third BEST IN SHOW Gayaneh: IC Gayaneh Juno Primas! And also PL*Ragissa Winnetou "Winski" was BIS :D
17.2.2018 ERY-SYD awarded the cats of the year 2017 in their show in Helsinki. Quite exciting to hear the word Gayaneh announced time after time in category 1 results: Gayaneh Helius Hilaris "Nipa" 2nd best adult, IC S*Gunbertus Twin Peaks for Gayaneh "Mortti" 3rd best adult and 1st breeding male, Gayaneh Mimulus macula "Mimo" 2nd best youngster, Gayaneh Nereis notabilis "Mauno" 3rd best youngster, SC Gayaneh Gaudeamus Igitur "Onni" 2nd best breeding male, Gayaneh Juno Primas "Juno" 1st breeding female. In addition, Gayaneh the best breeder in cat. 1. My warmest thanks to all those who have brought their Gayaneh cats to shows last year and made this possible! ♥ I could not have made this all by myself. The actual show was also exciting: Mauno best in variety, Livia (in the photo) nominated, Juno IC and, furthermore, Gayaneh the best breeder in category 1.
27-28.1.2018 A cat show in the home town Lahti. Have to be there! Was worth participating as we had such much fun during the two days and even got some success: the borthers G. Notholca noster "Pontus" and G. Nereis notabilis "Mauno" (in the photo) BIV, NOM.
PL*Ragissa Winnetou came from Poland! We had a short but nice trip to the beutiful city of Krakow. Already at the first sight this sweet boy made quite an impression: such an adorable doll. Thank you Izabela Kawecka for this darling Winski ♥
5.8.2017 We got this grazy idea of participating the "best cat litter" competition orgainsed by ERY-SYD in Helsinki - and guess what, we won! Thanks to Juno's and Mortti's beautiful babies Mimo, Mio and Merlin! Papa Mortti was also the best breeding male (being the only one :D) Furthermore, Mimo received the special prize by judge Kristiina Rautio, as she was THE KITTEN tha raised Kristiina's attention. No wonder ♥
Gayaneh cats received prizes in the ragdoll of the year 2016 competition organised by the Finnish Ragdoll Club. Among the three best (in the various categories...) were SC G. Helius Hilaris, SC G. Gaudeamus Igitur, SC G. Gratia Illa, IP G. Jaspis Aureus, CH G. Juno Primas, IC G. Littorella igitur ja IC G. Igitur Iris. Warm congratulations!
Gayaneh Helius Hilaris "Nipa" became Supreme Champion in Lahti (in the home city), which was a perfect reason for a party! The others also received their certificates and Lulu something extra: she was nominated (again) on Sunday.
8-9.10.2016 ja 15.10.2016
Gayaneh Littorella igitur "Lulu" was NOM in Hartola both in 8.10. and 9.10. A week later she graduated Champion in Helsinki, where S*Gunbertus Twin Peaks for Gayaneh "Mortti" had his very first show: EX 1 BIV NOM :)
Supreme Champion Gayaneh Gratia Illa "that joy" aka Prim graduated in Helsinki! Prim, the super sweet lady, is one of our most awarded ragdolls with over 10 nominations and many votes in panels (but never enough...) However, Prim's final steps in her career in the new I category turned out to be a challenge: one of the last CACS certificates, the one "from abroad" was being searched from Scandinavian Winner Show in Helsinki, but no: Michael Edström from Sweden concluded: "Very sorry but I can't give the certificate in this high class because of the head which needs more height and muzzle should be more rounded." The traditional ragdoll type represented by Prim is not so much appreciated by Swedish and Norwegian judges. Thus, Prim had to travel to Tallinn, where Anne Veland (from Middle Europe) without any hesitation gave CACS, saying Prim's head is "Ex broad with fine wedge and profile." Then again a Swedish judge 23.7. in Helsinki, where Prim was seeking for the very last CACS...! Nevertheless, Malin Sudnqvist gave the certificate despite of "...profile a bit straight. Muzzle a bit narrow." but overall "Sweet girl with a stunning body!" Prim is our beloved prima donna, a big girl with such a wonderful temperament ♥
GIC Gayaneh Helius Hilaris Best in Show male in category I! Nipa is the very first BIS tabby ragdoll in Finland!!!!
S*Gunbertus Twin Peaks for Gayaneh arrived from Sweden! Mortti is such a sweet purring promising kitten with silky coat and big paws. Ulla Johansson, tusen tack för den här härlig pojke ♥ Thank you so much for this lovely boy ♥
