|Goodeburm was born a
short while ago and has the
pleasure of inviting you for a
visit around its new web site.
You will see the females who
produced my kittens as one of
them (a boy) became grand Premier
and another (a female) became
Champion. Of course, the mothers
arent always perfect but
the fathers are. This enabled me
to have 3 cats which have been
competing in shows including a
champagne female, now living in
France. Sometimes, the father has
a small flaw and its
possible to correct it with the
right female, or so we hope.
Isnt it the way to better
the breed? Taking the best
attributes of one added to the
best qualities of another hoping
to get the best cats possible in
a litter. It will be these
beautiful babies which will start
their career in the show ring as
long as they enjoy it, as some
dont really appreciate
parading for the two-legged being
and would much rather stay in the
comfort of their home with their
I would like to thank Isabelle
Marchand from Burmania cattery to
have given me the opportunity to
start Goodeburm cattery with two
of her breeding females. With
time, we bred my 2 girls with her
2 studs who started their career
I would also like to thank Mrs.
Donna Stewart from Brenwood
cattery in California for her
trust in giving me one of her
sable kitten named Cappuccino
which will become the father of
my future kittens.
Thanks to Isabelle Bellavance for
her precious advices and
conversations on genetics and for
the many shows which we shared
around the North Atlantic region.
What fun we have doubled with
talks and late night grooming!
Because of these three wonderful
ladies, I now can enrich my life
long passion for cats especially
for the Burmese.
One day Burmese, forever Burmese.
Thanks to Isabelle Beaulieu for
this beautiful web site which you
can now visit while enjoying
Chopins soft melody,
himself a cat lover.

It was around the 1930s
that Dr. Thompson imported from
Birmania a pair of Burmese cats
but unfortunately one died soon
after. Dr. Thompson had to breed
his female with what seemed to
him the closest : A seal point
Siamese while selecting the ones
which looked the most like the
It would be in 1936 that the CFA
(Cat Fanciers Association)
recognized the Burmese as a breed.
A lot of exchanges were made
between North America and Great
Britain and of course discords
would follow. This is the reason
why, today, there are differents
categories of Burmese:
Comtemporary or American Burmese
and the Europeen Burmese.
The Burmese is a very smart being,
active and vocal cat. Generally,
he likes to climb high on
furnitures. He loves to climb on
our back and snuggle in our neck
especially when its time to clean
his litter pan. What pleasure he
has when his master writes; he
has to catch the moving pen, then
bite it or play with the
masters hand. And when it
comes to reading, oh well, forget
it because this small fur ball,
young or old, innocently sits on
the page were reading or
just on the open book, question
of knowing whos really the
master of the place. He was born
to be an acrobat, likes the
company of other four-legged and
gets along well with children. He
is an active and happy cat but
when he has outrun everyone
throughout the house, he wants
nice hands to cuddle him and a
good lap to sleep on. Of course,
he will be in heaven if he can
sleep under the covers.
The Burmese cat likes to travel
by himself or with his kind. Even
though he can easily adapt, he is
a very loyal cat in his house.
day Burmese, forever Burmese
part, I became a Burmese breeder
because of my love for the breed
but also by chance. One day, I
received as inheritance a very
beautiful sable girl. Since she
had already won her CFA titles,
she was retired and sold in
Canada to a coworker. This
coworker was herself a breeder
but having asthma made it
impossible for her to keep yet
another cat in her house. So when
her parents passed away in a
short time apart, I inherited of
the beautiful Lady Ling.
Thats how the love story
between us started. When she was
18 years old, I started to search
for another Burmese before Lady
Ling departed this world.
Unfortunately, the lady breeder
who worked with my coworker was
not longer breeding and my cat
passed on before I could find
another Burmese breeder.
One day when I went to my vet, I
asked her if she knew of a
Burmese breeder and thats
when she handed me Isabelle
Marchands business card.
After talking, we realized we had
someone in commun; My coworker ex-breeder.
Her wonderful stud was bred to
one of Isabelles girl. I
had the chance of getting a sable
girl, Penelope, which was the
girl of Shadouxs girl, my
coworkers stud who himself
was Lady Lings nephew.
Thats how worderful things
My breeding program, by its
genetic diversity, enables me to
obtain kitten in the four colors
recognized by the Cat
Fanciers Association (CFA).
The four colors are: sable,
platinum, champagne and blue. All
my cats are registered CFA and
CCA (Canadian cat association)
If you would like to discover my
passion on pictures, Im
inviting you to take a look at
