Tiny Lions Napoleons

Tiny Lions Napoleons has always been invested in the development of the Minuet (Napoleon) breed. We were there when Minuets were only allowed to show in Advanced New Breed class. We were there when they were accepted into championship in TICA, and have made it a point to continue to show our cats. We are now spearheading the effort to get the Minuet Talls accepted into Adult Championship.  Showing allows us to educate the public on what Minuets are and to let people handle these beautiful cats. We also enjoy competing in the cat world and getting Minuets acknowledged as stunning cats among all other cats.

We are personally proud to show our accomplishments in the form of Awards and Titles, as well as to congratulate those kittens we sent on to their new homes in their accomplishments if they showed. So, without further ado, here are our champion cats.

International Winner (IW)/Regional Winner (RW) and Supreme-Grand Champion (SGC) Clawed Lemiuex of Tiny Lions (Claude)

IW/RW BW Supreme Grand Champion Alter (SGCA) Catrice Purrgeron of Tiny Lions (Katy)

Katy was our special needs cat. Even with a heart problem, she was an extremely tough little girl who thrived on competition. She was altered because of her health issues, but we showed her because she was not frail. We will continue to show her for as long as possible.

RW Quad-Grand Champion (QGC) Judyscuties Gabrielle Landesclaw (Ellie)

We showed Ellie for a few shows before she retired to have a family. She had a few litters but then showed difficulty in conceiving.  I take her out every once in a while just for companionship at shows. Eventually, I will spay her and show her in Alter Class.

IW/BW Supreme Grand Champion (SGC) Blueskies Sydney Clawsby of Tiny Lions (Sydney)

Sydney is one of our pride and joys in showing. She is an astounding example of a Minuet and has proven it in the show ring. She is currently a supreme grand champion, the highest title a cat can receive. She is the #1 Minuet LH Internationally of 2020.  We bred her before the 2019-2020 show season ended, so her show career is being suspended for a time.

IW/RW SGM (Supreme Grand Master) Queen Josephine of Tiny Lions

Josie is a full-bred Minuet, but because one of her great grandparents is a domestic shorthair, she could not show in championship, although she could produce kittens that could show in championship class. However, when we spayed her, she was able to show in Household Pet Class in TICA. She is currently a Supreme Grand Master, the highest title a HHP cat can receive. She is cute as a button.

2020 Regional Winner, Fifth Best Household Pet of the Year (SC Region)

2020 International Winner, Fifteenth Best Household Pet of the Year

Tiny Lions Napoleons’ Accomplishments and Titles

Our Kittens’ Accomplishments and Titles

Currently, only one of the kittens we produced is showing. Most kittens have gone to pet homes, and while they can show, many have not been shown. I know of a few recent kittens that went to homes that want to show, but because of Covid, they are waiting for shows in Colorado to begin again.

IW SGM (Supreme Grand Master) Tiny Lions Duchess Noel

Duchess Noel (Duchess) is one of Claude and Bing’s babies and is a stunning cat. Because she is a Minuet Tall she cannot show in championship at this time and was forced to show in Household Pet. It took only a short while for her to reach her Supreme Grand Master title because she is absolutely and unbelievably gorgeous. Her human dad, William Feigt, proudly shows her and is going for the gold with her. No doubt, he has a good chance to make this beauty an international winner.

IW/BW RW Supreme Grand Champion (SGC) Pawcity Alexis Ovechkitten (Lexie)

Lexie is our newest show girl.  Like Sydney, she is perfection, with a to-die-for kitten-like expression. It was a sheer joy to show her the season of 2020-2021, and we are excited to say that she is the #1 Minuet LH Internationally of 2021. She received her Supreme Grand Champion title in her last show, at Mesquite, TX, getting not just one Best Cat, but three!  We have retired her to become a momma.

RW SGM (Supreme Grand Master) Lady Byng of Vimy

Bing is also a full-bred Minuet, but because one of her great grandparents is a domestic shorthair, she could not show in championship, although she could produce kittens that could show in championship class. Bing produced many amazing kittens for us, but we decided she had done her job and deserved retirement. We had her spayed so she could live out of the rest of her long life with us, and for fun, I show her in Household Pet Class in TICA. She is currently a Supreme Grand Master, the highest title a HHP cat can receive.
