THE STORY STARTED IN 1982 WHEN WE ESTABLISHED ATZELHOF CATTERY AND DESCIDED TO BREED PERSIANS. AT THAT TIME THE PERSIAN HEADTYP IN GERMANY WAS JUST STARTING TO GET A LITTLE MORE FLAT AND THE NOSES SHORTER. SO IT IS NO SURPRISE THAT OUR FIRST PEDIGREED KITTEN; A COPPER EYED WHITE LOOKED AS A TODAYS PET. HER NAME WAS DESIRE VON PIRMASENS, WE TOTALLY FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS BREED AND THE STORY BEGAN. THIS LITTLE KITTY BECAME OUR VERY SPECIAL CAT FOR THE NEXT 19 YEARS.

 

 

 

 

SHE WAS FOLLOWD BY MANY MANY OTHERS. FOR A LONG PERIODE OF TIME WE WERE VERY BUSY AND SUCCESSFUL IN BREEDING PERSIANS. BRIGITTE IS ALWAYS THE ONE WHO CARES FOR THE CATS, SHE IS THE ONE WHO IS CLEANING, NURSING AND GROOMING. MICHAEL ALWAYS DOES THE STRATEGIC THINGS WITH PEDIGREES AND CORRESPONDENCE.

 

 

 

WE WERE SHOWING IN FIFE;INDEPENDENT CLUBS AND WCF:

IN 1988 MICHAEL STARTET HIS EDUCATION TO BECOME A CAT JUDGE: EVERYTHING WAS DONE IN A VERY TRADITIONAL WAY FIRST THE LONGHAIR-; THAN THE SIAMESE 6 ORIENTALS; THE SHORTHAIR GROUP AND FINALLY THE SEMI-LONGHAIR GROUP:  HE FINISHED IN THE MID OF THE 90's AND WAS A SO CALLED ALLBREED JUDGE:

 

AT THAT TIME A LOT OF CATS WERE IMPORTED FROM US TO EUROPE AND FINALLY CFA SWEPED OVER AND STARTED BECOMING ACTIV: WE REMEMBER VERY WELL THE FIRST SHOW IN VIENNA/AUSTIA: WE TOOK A / HOUR DRIVE TO GET THERE JUST TO SEE WHAT HAPPEND: WE WERE HIDDEN BY THE SPIRIT OF CFA AND STARTED SHOWING EXCLUSIVELY THERE:
