Serena Queen of the Jungle
Queenie was our first bengal and her dad was the bengal that stole my
heart and inspired me to start breeding these beautiful cats. Queenie is now
retired and remains my constanst friend and companion. Queenie is mother to
Glimmermere's Nuri Khan and Glimmermere's Anum Khan. Queenie has beautiful
bright green eyes, a lovely soft pelt, lots of glitter, nice small ears, a
very light tummy, paw print rosettes and lots of rufousing. She is a very
lovable and talkative cat. She is also my little guard dog and will growl
and call me if she feels there is any danger to me. Queenie is mother to our
Glimmermere's Nuri Khan and Glimmermere's Anum Khan. Sadly we will be saying farewell to our dear friend soon. Queenie has recently been diagnosed with cancer and has a short time left with us.
Glimmermere's Foothill Felines Sheera Khan
Sheera was our first import and will always be my most missed companion.
Many thanks to Holly, in the USA, for sending us this very sweet, beautiful
girl. Sadly Sheera is no longer with us but she continues to live on in her
lovely daughters Tamara Khan and Cenedra Khan and all her wonderful
grandchildren. Sheera was the most lovable amazing cat I have ever owned. I
will never forget the day Sheera arrived in SA. Holly had sent me constant
updates and pictures on Sheera before she arrived. Holly had told me I would
be very happy with her very outgoing nature but nothing could prepare me for
the amazing friend that was about to arrive. After 3 days of travelling
Sheera finally arrived in SA. I expected her to be very nervous after all
the travelling. Imagine my surprise when I opened the carrier and she walked
up to me and gave me a "hello" head but. That night Sheera fell asleep in my
arms all four paws in the air, with her head nuzzling my neck and purring
loudly. We were soon to discover that Sheera just loved to meet new people.
She could be anywhere in the house but the moment she heard a new voice she
would come running and lay on her back in front of her potential new friend.
She would then roll and cry until she finally got her tummy tickle. The
tummy tickle seems to be a tradition that most of her grandchildren tend to
do. Sheera loved to talk and would follow me around everywhere. She loved to
be cuddled and insisted on sleeping under the blankets in my arms at night.
Sheera had wonderful black arrow head rossetes. Her grandchildren continue
to display these wonderful black markings either in marble or spotted form.
Holly has continued to be a wonderful friend and support to me over the
Glimmermere's Cenedra Khan
Cenedra is daughter to our late Sheera Khan. Cenedra is now retired and
was Sheera's first kitten. Cenedra is a lynx point snow spotted bengal. As
she is a lynx point she has lovely blue eyes. Cenedra is just like her mom
Sheera. She walks and talks exactly the same as mom. Like mom Cenedra just
loves people. Visitors will always hear Cenedra before they see her. She
loves attention and will like nothing more than to be picked up and cuddled.
She is a total tom boy and much prefers playing with the boys then the
girls. She is a constant companion to Glimmermere's Nuri Khan and lets him
know very clearly who is the boss. Cenedra continues to be my special friend
In Memory of the Late Tamara Khan
It was with much sadness that our darling girl Tamara Khan died on 6 November 2007. Tamara was a wonderful sweet
girl. Tamara loved to have a big conversation with me and enjoyed sitting on
my lap. Tamara was a very big part of our breeding program and just loved
being a mommy. She just loved having kittens and wouldl play with them for
hours. Tamara's parents were our first imports Foothill Felines Sheera Khan
and Aluren Tenaka Khan. Tamara had a very unusual coat for a brown marble as
instead of the traditional brown marbling she has black swirls with a very
gold background colour. In addition she had lots of gold glitter and a very
light tummy which made her very striking with the black swirls. Tamara
gave us many stunning brown marble kittens with this lovely black pattern. Tamara will always be very special to us and is missed terribly. Her daughters Bahira, Tasleem and Anisa remain in our program to continue their mom's legacy.
