|For many years I had street cats that I rescued and loved, including a domestic blue who became the joy and delight of my heart. After her death I promised one day I would get another blue cat in her memory.
Twelve years later, I saw my first Russian Blue girl at my local vet in 2000. It was love at first sight. I visited a nearby breeder and acquired a little girl with breeding rights. A year later I got another little girl from her. They are from top WCF cats from the Ukraine and Russia.
By this time I had registered my Bright Light cattery with the World Cat Federation (WCF) and had started showing.
I was now faced with the task of finding a top quality boy. The Salzbachtal cattery in Germany was where I went for my foundation tom. Erazmus vom Salzbachtal, the father of my foundation tom, Gabriel, was the top Russian Blue and 8th best Champion cat in 1DEKZV, the FIFe club in Germany, in 2002. His pedigree has cats from top German, Austrian and Czechoslovakian lines.
His son, CH Bright Light's Bravissimo Ben Tzion, blending the best of Western and Eastern Europe, has followed in his father's illustrious footsteps, achieving BEST OF BEST in March 2005.
The Brightlight Cattery is now registered with TICA................and
In February, 2005, I acquired a CFA registered boy from top CFA lines. Mewsblu Sergei Simha of Brightlight is from top North American lines. Three of his ancestors have been the Best RB with CFA. The combination of the top FIFe, WCF and CFA lines should produce superb kittens. The first fruits of this blending of lines is expected in May, 2005.
My cats are not caged and kittens are raised "underfoot". They are bred for beauty and raised for temperament. Everyone who has a Bright Light kitten is thrilled with their "fur baby". See the Cat Tales page for testimonies and tales of Bright Light kittens in their new homes.
Bright Light kittens have travelled as far afield as Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, New York, and Seattle in the USA; Vancouver, Edmonton, and Toronto in Canada; Johannesburg and Cape Town in South Africa; Berlin, Germany and Amsterdam, Holland.
Most of my kittens go to pet homes but I do consider allowing females to go to suitable breeding homes.
Prices for a pet kitten start at US$500.
