Delphinium is a registered Prefix with The Governing Council of the Cat Fancy.
I was born in England to Polish parents and have always had a passion for animals,
nature, gardens and plants, especially blue flowers hence my prefix name. My prefix
'Delphinium' has been registered with the GCCF since 2008.
We acquired our first British Shorthair, Joeleblu Stardust from Ray Joel and immediately
fell in love with the breed.
'Angel' as we named her, had kittens the following year and we kept Kim, as a pet neuter,
from her first litter. See Boys page.
Show successes began in 2007 with her kittens Oliver and Izabella and Oliver was our
first bred Champion. Following this, we began to focus on establishing our own lines
and bred our first blue boy Mighty Atom, 'Button', who achieved Grand Champion status!
Yoella was our first silver tabby from Sargenta cattery and has done very well on the show
bench. Thank you to Ursula Graves for such a beautiful cat!
Her daughter, Alice is our first home bred silver (black spotted) and we have achieved well
with Imp Gr Pr and Ch Delphinium Sweetheart. She has now finished her breeding life and
will continue with her show career as a neuter. Her son, Gr Ch Delphinium Galahad has
also done well on the show bench achieving Best of Variety British in his first show. And of
course, we also have a brown tabby line now, starting with Gr Ch Brynbuboo's two
offspring from his last ever litter, Sweet William, Sweet Pea and Vindy's Cherub (owned by
Elaine Lucas). They have done incredibly well in the show bench and are producing excellent
I breed British Blue and self colours,
Tabbies: including Black Silver Tabby, Blue and Brown Tabbies, both spotted and classic.
My hobby is showing and also breeding kittens that are healthy and well socialised.
I try to breed from cats with top pedigrees, looking for the old 'lines' to maintain the true
I aim to improve the quality/standard of the kittens that I breed.
Silver breeding is kept separate to my self and blue/brown tabby lines.
Excellent temperaments are paramount.
My children Emily and Sophie love the cats and are a great help in socialising
the kittens! They are wonderful helpers and partners!
We are based in South Birmingham, within easy reach of the motorway links for the
M42 and M6.
I am very grateful to good breeders and friends for all their advice and support.
