Tiny Lions Napoleons Gabrielle Landesclaw’s Kittens

Gabrielle Landesclaw, Ellie, had her first litter on September 6, 2018. She had three longhaired male short kittens, all looking very different from each other. Teddy, upper left, is a chocolate smoke and white bi-color kitten. S’more, lower left, is a chocolate silver shaded mackerel tabby and white, and is showing signs of looking like his mom. Vincent, next to S’more, is another chocolate silver shaded mackerel tabby and white. All of them have gone to their new homes.

Ellie’s first litter

Ellie’s second litter

Claude’s seventh litter was with Ellie (Gabrielle Landesclaw), which was their second litter together. There were two short boys. The one on the left is Pillow, a chocolate mackerel tabby and white.  To the right of Pillow is Neko, a silver shaded mackerel tabby and white, just like his mom. These little guys are doll babies. They grew up with Toby, May, and Smudge (above) and had an extended family.

Pillow went to a new breeder in California to breed Scottish Kilt kittens. At the time of this writing, Pillow has had two successful litters.

Ellie’s third litter

Ellie’s third litter was a unique situation. We didn’t use Claude, our stud. When Ellie couldn’t conceive with Claude after her c-section on the second litter, we took her to a reproductive specialist. Tests showed nothing physically wrong with her, so the vet suggested trying another stud. A friend in Montana, Lynn Brown, of 406Paws, graciously allowed us to use Fleurdelis Indiana Jones of 406Paws (Indy) to see if Ellie could conceive. The union was successful.

On the left is Hugo, a tall chocolate smoke torbie boy (yes, a torbie boy!). On the right is Deku, a chocolate smoke and white solid tall boy. Two beautiful kittens from a stud on loan from 406Paws.

Sadly, my very favorite kitten, Hugo (left) passed away at five weeks old.  I was devastated, since he was my favorite kitten in a very long while.  We will not use the pairing of Ellie and Indy again, as a precaution against losing any more kittens, although there is no proof that the pairing was the cause of Hugo’s passing. We always err on the side of caution.
