"PJ" came to us courtesy of Kay, Terry and Harley DeVilbiss of MinusDeTails cattery in Texas. The nickname PJ was given to Northern Exposure as a kitten from Dorothy Seils and Kay and Terry since he closely resembled his grand father, Down Pat. PJ stands for "Pat Jr". PJ is a black and white, long hair, rumpy Manx. He was our only stud at the time, following the loss of our foundation male CH. Briar-Brae My Black Sambo in March 2006. PJ was featured on checks and pamphlets representing the Long Hair Manx and on the CFA website. We're so proud of PJ, his babies and their accomplishments!

PJ is registered with The Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA) and The International Cat Association (TICA) cat registries. He has achieved many titles in both associations. Both his parents have achieved the titles of International Winner and Supreme Grand Champion in TICA. PJ hasn't shown in a few years, but if taken out whole or altered we have no doubt he'll do great!

P.J. began siring litters for Karello Cattery in January of 2006. His kittens had his fantastic boning, size and darling personality. Those who have gone into new homes are cherished, beloved companions. P.J. produced three show cats his first year. One was "Cookie", who earned the titles of Grand Champion and 2nd Best of Breed, nationally. Another, Mr. Chaps aka "Cowboy" earned the title of Grand Premier February 2008.

Briar-Brae My Black Sambo
Champion CFA

Dam: Greathouse Emily of Briar-Brae
DOB: 04/20/95

Sambo (better known as "Bo Bo" by those who loved him most) was a rumpy hi-riser, black with white lockets Manx. Sambo was our foundation male (stud we first began breeding with. He sired many wonderful show cats and delightful, cherished pets over the years he shared his life with us. He had a sweet personality, was very affectionate, loving and had astoundingly sound bloodlines. The show cats he's sired are GP, Karello Rolley Pulley; CH, Premier Karello's Oliver Twist; GP, Karello's Jedi Master Yoda; GC, GP, RW Karello's Sam's Son; GC, RW, Karello's Sam's I Am of Briar-Brae (now of Faerietail Cattery); GC, GP, RW Karello's Play It Again Sam's; and GP Karello's Sam's Rum Tum Tugger; GP Karello's Sam's Bella Luna and GP Karello's Sam's Purrgus McKitty. Sadly, we lost "Bo Bo" in March of 2006, we've continued on with our breeding program and have added PJ as our stud. The contribution "Bo Bo" has added to our lines, cattery and the Manx breed can never be matched. He will always be a part of Karello Cattery and our wonderful cats.

"Tony" was our dock tail stud. Tony is a brown classic tabby, dock tail. Tony is from my foundation pair, their first litter. Tony is a very sweet, loving and affectionate boy, nothing like his name would indicate. After the loss of his father and with the addition of PJ to our breeding program, Tony moved into "retired" status and was placed. Tony has done a fine job producing beautiful kittens.

She has not had a lot of litters with us but in the litters she has had, she produces fantastic show cats and highly sought after pets. I love this cat, we share the same adoration for each other. She is so sweet and affectionate, it shows in her pictures. She passes her great personality onto her kittens along with that sweet expression and great confirmation. She is getting up in age, the time has come for her to move into retired status, she was spayed in February 2008 and placed shortly there after.

"Cindy" is a beautiful tortoiseshell, smoke and white, long hair, rumpy, female Manx. She was a ONE SHOW GRAND at her first Champion show earning the 200 points needed to add the title of Grand Champion to her name. Cindy was my second "Baby Grand" in the many years we've been breeding Manx. (GC, GP, RW Karello's Play It Again Sams, was my first "Baby Grand"!) Later in that same show season (2007-2008) Cindy easily added Breed Winner (BW) to her titles, before reaching the age of a year old. April 2008 she kept going into heat when shown, so she was bred to PJ. April 2009 she was spayed and retired from breeding. Cindy remains with me as my beloved pet.
