Our breeding plans for 2019 are dependent on the queens coming off contraception. We have a pregnant queen (early stages) and will update in due course.
Current queens are Josephine, Leona, Nahia and Damaspia.
We have 2 young princes waiting to take over stud duties. a Blue silver and a Fawn Silver. Photos in due course. Zachary and Apollo will eventually realise they are studs. I am certain Zac and Nahia will start their own family shortly as they are great friends are seemingly joined at the hip.

A deposit is required to reserve a kitten. Balance on collection by (cash/transfer/ paypal). It’s a hobby and I don’t take cards or cheques (unless by prior arrangement and cheques need to be cleared into account).

Final litter of 2016

are proud to announce the arrival of their 2 daughters and 1 son,

The older kitten Sorafel Ophelia is a full sibling from the same parents. She will be going to Japan in May.
3 sorrel silver kittens born 24/9/2016 to Sorafel Raya Leona (sorrel silver) and Sable Klan Rurik of Sorafel (fawn)
All 3 have gone to their new homes. The male Sorafel Talisman has gone to his new home in Norway and I will update his photos in his new home shortly.
They are vaccinated, wormed, treated with Stronghold, GCCF registered, and will come with pedigree certificate, vaccination certificate, 4 weeks petplan or Agria insurance and GCCF paperwork.
They are weaned, eating a mix of wet and dry, litter trained (when not to busy to look for it) and a bundle of joy.
All Sorafel Cats are PKDef and PRA clear (tested or ancestry clear).
Both parents are tested FIV/Felv clear.
Next planned litters
A) Lexie and Ruslan (sorrel silver and fawn)
B) Josephine and Ruslan (usual silver/fawn) (Mating has taken place so watch this space)
C) Ivory and either Dorian or Ruslan, probably her last litter. (Mating has taken place, watch this space)
Ivory is our oldest queen and will be rested for a while before she is mated again. Hopefully Spring 2017. I have a breeder restriction on first generation kittens so her daughters Josephine and Leona will take over from her in due course.
I am expecting new litters before Easter as the felines have been active.
Sales Policy: We require a deposit to reserve a kitten which is non-refundable in the event of the new owner changing their minds. The deposit is refunded if the change is from our side for any reason (kitten sustaining an injury/showing a dislike of children if it’s going to a home with children, developing a show fault etc) or general concern about the well-being of the kitten. The potential owner could be offered an alternative kitten if one is available but is under no obligation to take it. We reserve the right to refuse to sell a kitten without giving a reason.

3 usual silver boys reserved, 1 usual silver girl reserved. They will be joining their new families the first week of March and April.
Mother and babies are doing fine
Older sister Jossy was so fascinated with the whole process she decided she’s next.. (see planned matings further down the page) – but some of the others seem to have beaten her to it!
12 hours old, and doing well.

Kitten Plans 2016
Exciting times ahead with Ruslan now grown up and Ready willing and able to stand alongside Dorian as the second Sorafel stud. He is (like all Sorafel breeding cats) PKDef and PRA clear, and has tested clear for FIV/Felv. He is the first solid in many years and it is hoped he will bring back the fawn silver into the cattery in the future.
Ruslan (Sable Klan Rurik of Sorafel) and Jossy (Sorafel Josephine) had a successful mating and will have their first litter in March.
As a first litter, I’m guessing they’ll all be usual and possibly sorrel, and probably all silvers.
