In Memory of

BZ DB GD CH and US CH Pewterpaws Yindee Sumatra (Imp USA)

DOB: 25th May 2000
Died: 27th September 2016


 
The handsome 'Mr Yindee'

Yindee came to us in 2002 from Professor Bill Gustafson, Nebraska, USA, as part of a line exchange to introduce new blood lines into our Korat gene pool. He was a regal and charming boy with a gentle disposition. He has sired some beautiful kittens, including Doklao Chintina Blu Rose, Doklao Kobalt Quinn, a stud and show Korat, who travelled to Europe in 2012 and now resides with Josiane Massart, a Korat breeder in France http://www.korats-de-senguinet.fr. Also Doklao Blu Ma Phra Toranee, known as ‘Ranee, owned by Joy Marshall of BluMaew Korats and most recently Doklao Blu Emiko, his last kitten born in 2015.

Yindee passed peacefully over the rainbow bridge after a short illness from age related problems. We hope that he is meeting up with old friends and chasing butterflies. We have many good memories of Yindee’s time with us and his spirit will continue to live on in his many offspring. Goodbye old boy, it’s been a privilege knowing you.



In Memory of

Doklao Manee (Sirikit)

DOB:  10th April 1999 

DIED: 6th March 2016








Sirikit was a feline Tardis : her diminutive frame contained a huge personality, intelligence, heart and voice.  As a singer I envied the strength of her vocal cords! When she was young she was a terrific fetcher, flying down carpeted stairs to catch coiled pipe cleaners which she would then deposit on our feet.

She adapted perfectly to our many moves, though objected to all car trips.  She always hated the vacuum cleaner and the ironing board and storms, and would come to tell me if there was a fly on her meat.  She had many friends and admirers, and will always be missed.



In Memory of

Doklao Tybalt


DOB:  23rd April 2015 

DIED: 7th May 2015


This sweet little boy was only with us for a very short period of time. We did everything we could to give him the best chance, but sadly, it wasn't enough to keep a hold of him. He fought hard to stay at first, but it all became too much and sometimes we just have to accept that mother nature isn't fair.  It is the most heartbraking aspect of being a breeder. Farewell and rest in peace, little one.



In Memory of

Sawadas Micky Finn (Micky)

DOB:  12th May 1996 

DIED: 3rd March 2014

   

Micky was a wonderful and gentle boy who had a way with the girls. He had been with us since 2002 and was an important part of our breeding program. In the last 6 months of his life Micky developed diabetes and had to have injections of insulin twice a day.  He was very good about it and never complained. Sadly at nearly 18 years of age it all became too much for him and we gave him peace.


In Memory of

GLD DB GD CH Doklao Blueberry Ash (Ash)

DOB:  26th March 2009

DIED: 2nd February 2012

Ash was our first Doklao stud boy. He had grown into a well built, strong and muscular male Korat. Ash was 'larger than life',  loved by everyone and was an amazingly sweet tempered boy. He was very friendly and engaging and curious about everything and everyone. The girls, especially Suri and Yoyo, adored him and loved to spend time with him. Those (both cat and human alike) who met him and came to know him, will remember him and all his special charms. On the show bench Ash was awarded quite a few top five placings and became well known for his vocal chords!
Ash was taken from us far too soon and under very tragic circumstances. He is survived by 35 beautiful offspring who we hope will go on to live long and happy lives. Ash will always have a special place in our hearts and we miss him terribly...

 

In Memory of

GLD DB GD CH Doklao Bella Blu (Bella)

DOB: 7th March 1997

DIED: 19th February 2009

Bella was our first Doklao queen and she retired from showing and breeding in 2005. She was an excellent and caring mother having eight litters of kittens between 1998 - 2005. In her ‘spay’ years she remained the clan matriarch and a bit of a warrior princess. Bella had an opinion about everything and everyone and loved to be the centre of attention. She was a striking and beautiful cat with prominent green eyes and beautiful Korat expression. Bella won many awards at cat shows including Best Group Three Female (Ring 3) at the CCCA National Show 2001. She has been featured on TV and in magazines. Bella’s life was tragically cut short by cancer. She now lies in our garden and we will miss her always.

In Memory of

DOB: 4th September 1992

DIED: 1st November 2004

Zoe was our foundation queen and in the years 1994 - 2002 she had eight litters of kittens and gave us our beautiful queen Gd DB GD CH Doklao Bella Blu. Zoe's kittens introduced many people to the wonderful world of Korat companionship and we have made many friends in the process. Some of Zoe's offspring have also won awards and titles at cat shows and for this she was awarded a Certificate of Distinguished Merit by the NSW Cat Fanciers Association. We continue to miss Zoe’s calm presence in our lives but we know that her legacy lives on through her offspring both in Australia and abroad.
