Lumikki, or Misu as she is called in her new home, is the only kitten from the first litter of her mum Lumi so she simply had to go forward in breeding. In addition to her unique pedigree, she is a very pretty presentative of the Scandinavian type of Russian Blue with a beautiful expression, good-sized eyes, profile and short coat.

Misu lives near us in Tapanila, Helsinki.

Felv/FIV test: neg.
Microsporum canis: -

Roksana is currently our only breeding cat at home. She was born from the last litter of Aino with a very special boy that we imported from Russia and grew to love very much, Amulet. It was planned ever since the mating that we would keep a pretty girl from the combination. And we did. She's definitely pretty and lighter than her mum in coat but she also has a lovely and curious personality - she loves to make contact with us! She also has a very nice profile. Eye colour is still in development.

ASOLAN Blu Kristmas, Aino

kissataino Gender: female
DOB: 13.12.2012
Sire: NorthernBlue Jungle Boy
Dam: Starstruck's Greta Ekman
Breeder: Tommi Tanttu
Owner: Tommi Tanttu
Chataract/PRA test: neg.
Felv/FIV test: neg.
Blood group: A

The first Starstruck's kitten that was born in our house but never left the house. That should tell it all - how important she is for us.

Unlike her mother Greta, Aino is a very lovely in character too. She purrs constantly and lets our kids cuddle her, and is not afraid of many things.

Aino, a look-a-like of his dad Anders, is a Scandinavian Russian Blue who has her daddy's nicely placed, open ears. She also seems to be developing lovely green in her eyes that could be a bit bigger althought they're excellent almond-shaped. The overall impression is very Scandinavian, of which I am extremely grateful. It will be pleasure to follow her development here with us, every day.

We hope Aino to have many classic-looking litters in her breeding career. Here with us and her own mama Greta.

Starstruck's Greta Ekman

kissatgreta Gender: female
DOB: 27.11.2010
Sire: Koroleva Grigorij Blue Prince
Dam: Starstruck's Elektrina
Breeder: Katja Kurisjärvi
Owner: Katja Kurisjärvi
Chataract/PRA: neg.
Felv/FIV test: neg.
Blood group: A

Greta is the only daughter of my beautiful leasing cat Elektrina. And what a wonderful little cat she became! I can tell you that she's a little purring machine and loves people - and hates cat shows! Of our cats, she's especially attached to her daugher Aino but also to Boa and Inga. She's a special cat for me and Tommi as she has all our breeding cats behind her except for Fantazija. It is such a joy to have her with us!

To me, Greta looks very much like his dad Grigorij but she's not an identical twin of his father (except for the eye colour that leaves room for improvement). There's something of her mother Ellu in her - she definitely has more open ears than his father and the wedge reminds me that of Ellu and grandad Aku. Greta has a really nice profile with a straight nose, good chin and angle and a flat forehead. Greta has had 3 litters with 2 kittens in each.

Silverklon's Bluebell, Inga

kissatinga Gender: female
DOB: 5.2.2009
Sire: S* Alexej
Dam: Cortobelle's Lisa
Breeder: Victoria Anderssoni
Owner: Katja Kurisjärvi
Chataract/PRA: neg.

Inga, the girl with a healthy appetite, is the result of a extensive breeding plan, which started from the visit of my C litter's male Corto to Sweden. Corto is the grandad of Inga. I wanted back my own lines combined with beautiful Swedish cats and some rare Swedish lines. I really like what I got back ;) Not only Inga possesses a really brave and loving personality but she has the most dense, short and dark coat I've seen in a while. The head is also very balanced with open and nicely placed ears.

Unfortunately, soon after Inga's arrival I noticed a small umbilical hernia which was undetected in the vet examination in Sweden. We could not let her go even though she is no breeding material. She remains as a our beloved 'lap cat' and stays at home to entertain us and our other cats. She is really the perfect pet!

CH Wildtbergs Reca Wolga

kissatwolga Gender: female
DOB: 9.1.2006
Sire: CH Vatulands Yurij
Dam: IC Zilarrezko Lady Rowena
Breeder: Ywonne Wildtberg
Owner: Katja Kurisjärvi
CPC: non-carrier

Wolga, our first Swedish import from 2006, has a real talent in purring and playing - all kinds of mouses and whips are on the top of her "play list"! Like her mum Lady Rowena, I know she'll stay playful and active until the end of her days. In the days before her sterilization, Wolga was a real hormone female, and she clearly had her good and bad days from the latter of which other cats had to suffer. Nowadays she is quite withdrawn and definitely our shyest cat.

Wolga possess a strong rysslook complemented with a straight nose, good angle, green eyes and very dark but silvery coat. Her body is lean and long. The head could be wider, eyes bigger and ears more open. Wolga has had altogether 3 litters with 8 kittens, 3 of which girls and 5 boys.

Nowadays Wolga lives a city life with Linda and without children or other cats.

CH & GIP Jumillas Born to Run, Boa

kissatboa Gender: male
DOB: 28.8.2005
Sire: IC Dynamo Alaska
Dam: CH Luna of Brilliant Disguise
Breeder: Gudrun Dellwo
Owner: Katja Kurisjärvi
CPC: non-carrier

Boa is and always will be the only male member in our cat family. Boa is just as wonderful as his German breeder told he would be: cuddly, sweet and playful Russian Blue with a healthy appetite. He is very easy to fall in love with: he loves to give eskimo kisses to anyone and welcomes all guests, sitting content on their laps just like on ours. This wonderful boy also feels very much at home in cat shows. Rarely, when he's really irritated by something, he shows it by teasing our girls.

From the outer appearance Boa has inherited the looks of his American father Shrimp: the coat is short, dense and silvery and the nose absolutely straight. Despite of his nearly perfect Russian Blue look, it is his loving and caring character what charms every living thing, humans and cats included. Boa has fathered 3 litters with 6 boys and 3 girls.

CH Kuunkajon Candelifera

kissatlaiffi Gender: female
DOB: 15.5.2004
Sire: IC Antey
Dam: Kuunkajon Blueberry
Breeder: Monica Kyyhkynen
Owner: Katja Kurisjärvi
CPC: non-carrier

Laiffi is our first cat who holds a special place in our hearts. She is a gentle girl who likes nothing better than to sit on her mama’s or papa’s lap – or preferably on their backs. Being a daddy's girl, she wakes up Tommi every morning and says him 'hi' when he's leaving to work. She's also a little policewoman who stops all cat fights in household.

From the outer appearance, our long-legged and used-to-be elegant miss bears a great resemblance to her Russian relatives with her high-set ears and middle-blue coat. Laiffi’s eyes are beautiful light green but with a narrow yellow ring in the corner of her eye. The best thing about Laiffi is her soft and dense coat with fantastic tipping. Laiffi has had 3 litters with a total of 7 kittens: 5 boys and 2 girls.

SE* Skuggpanterns Anna Petrovna, Lumi

kissatAnna Gender: female
DOB: 21.2.2015
Sire: SE*Grrr Orchis Neotinea Ustulata
Dam: SE*Kärrmarks Amalija
Breeder: Kajsa Berggren
Owner: Katja Kurisjärvi
Chataract/PRA test: -
Felv/FIV test: neg.
Microsporum canis: neg.

My dream came true when I found Lumi! I was on the lookout for a rare Swedish pedigree with a Scandinavian focus...and here she is. She is from the last litter of Kajsa Berggren's only breeding female Tesla, whose kittens are largely not in the breeding. So she is very special. Her daddy, a loving and talkative Rufus from Grrr catter, made huge impression on me because of his super character and green eyes.

Lumi has very Scandinavian looks with lovely wedge and open big hears, as well as a promising profile. Her medium blue coat is short, silky and dense. Eyes are still developing but I so hope they'll turn green in the end. Lumi had two litters, altogether 3 kittens.

Lumi lives with Starstruck's Inkerin kuura and Anu in Kotka.

Amulet Suomipoika Trozayar

Amulet Gender: male
DOB: 31.3.2016
Sire: CH Erofey Habarov Viora Trozayar
Dam: Yoorana Loving Layar Trozayar
Breeder: Svetlana Razumnaya
Owner: Katja Kurisjärvi
Chataract/PRA: neg.
Colorpoint: neg.
Long hair: neg.
Felv/FIV test: neg.
Microsporum canis: neg.

It was the last August weekend in 2016 when I flew to Moscow to fetch Amulet to his new homeland. He was just like in the pictures I received from Svetlana. The first thing you notice about him are his adorable rabbit ears, and his beautiful, beautiful short and dense coat that has more tipping than any of our other cats so far. His profile is also to my liking but is the character that is out of the extraordinary - he's simply a purring machine!

Amulet lived with us for the first two Finnish months but now he has a forever home at Mia's in Järvenpää 20 kilometers from us. He, however, sometimes visits us and we're so happy about that!

In his breeding program, Amu got 9 kittens with 3 females - 5 girls and 4 boys.

Sini-ihmeen Mikko Mania, Maksim

kissatMaksim Gender: male
DOB: 5.12.2014
Sire: Marco of Happy Song
Dam: Mudhoneys Minni
Breeder: Katja Impivaara-Ursin
Owner: Nina Lehto
HCM test: neg.
Chataract/PRA: neg.
Felv/FIV test: neg.
Blood group: A

The great Maksim comes from my namesake Katja Impivaara-Ursin, and lives with Nina and Pasi in Pori, Western Finland. He is meant not only to charm his human parents but also a few girls here in Finland. He has a good pedigree with non-Finnish parents: sire is my import Marco of Happy Song from Latvia and dam a Swedish import Mudhoneys Minni. However, from his looks, he is more of the Scandinavian type.

Maksim has a fantastic ear set and eye shape, broad head, short nose and promising profile. His eyes are turning green. On top, he is a very relaxed and peace-loving fellow. I hope Nina and Pasi take him to a show or two, as he seems to possess an excellent show character.

Maksim had altogether 2 litters and 5 kittens.

Marco of Happy Song

kissatmarco Gender: male
DOB: 10.6.2013
Sire: CH Takao Niebieska Perla*PL
Dam: Milla Jovovich of Happy Song
Breeder: Marija Valtere
Owner: Virpi Inkilä
Chataract/PRA:neg.
Felv/FIV test: neg.
Blood group: A

Marco was my stud from Latvia, Marija Valtere's Happy Song cattery. This originally WFC-registered male had multiple litters to widen the Finnish gene pool, and he had one litter of four healthy kittens with our own offspring, Aino. Marco lives in Kouvola with his pet brother Mirco and devoted cat parents Virpi and Seppo.

Marco has lovely green eye colour, ex chin and nicely placed vertical ears. I also very much valuate his very short, silvery coat. I decided to go for this little guy also because I had searched for a stud with low inbreeding and new lines for some time: he has a lot to offer in this respect, too.

Marco had altogether 5 litters in Finland and his lines continue nicely here in Finland.
