About us

 

My name is Ann-Mari Egsæter. I am married to Freddy, I am a housewife and enjoy it.
Our first Birman was bought in 1983, Simha av Rambo - sealpoint female.
Six months later we bought yet another sealpoint female, Trollehöjds Senita.


Our pre-fix (N)Cat Baloo's originates from the movie starring Jane Fonda.

From our first litter, born in June 1985, we kept a sealpoint female, Baby Jane.
She later went on to acheive both a European Champion and a European Premier title.
You can see more pictures of "Gismo" and other (N)Cat Baloo's kittens in the gallery.


We live out in the coutryside by the sea in Hallangen, Frogn.
The cats are allowed to go in and out as they please, under our supervision of course.


If you are interested in a kitten, or just want to know more about the breed,

After having seen pictures of red-, cream- and tortiepoint Birmans,
we fell in love, and just had to have such a cat.
We bought Trollehöjds Palette in 1986. She might not have been a "beauty" as a baby,
but had an incredible temperament.

Trollehöjds Palette


Palette's mum was an import from Hilkens in Great Britain, a cattery run by Hillary and Ken Clark, well known for their effort in the development of the red-series.

The reds, creams and torties were not recognized at that time, and we had to work hard to produce enough quality babies to be able to show them in order to get them accepted. (FIFé demanded 20 cats at a show to get recognizion, and they had to be judged by not less than 4 FIFé judges.)

In 1990 FIFé recgonized the red-series, and the interest in these varieties started growing.

In 1998, at the age of 12, Trollehöjds Palette became Scandinavian Winner.

We had the honour of breeding the first redpoint born in Norway, (N)Cat Baloo's Red Delicious. He was kept for further breeding and gave us many nice offspring, among others GIC (N)Cat Baloo's Peppermint Patti who stayed with us.

In addition to the cats we have five ducks who produce lovely big eggs.
We are also very found of flowers, both on threes and in flowerbeds.
