MAYSTAR MEWS 2019
Ikon has done it again!
Huge thanks must go out to Diana Saunderson from Watchout Birmans and Sarah Walker from Boucles Selkirk Rex for 'running' Ikon at his first TICA show ever. He was loved by all who met him, judge offered to take him home and then on the Sunday, in the last ring, he gained 4th best cat out of a terrific line up. DEC 2019
Seven kittens were born to Tyga and Bonja, however, due to size and other factors, we lost four of them within a short time. Now, we have two strapping boys and a girl to show for it and three is a much more manageable number, especially when we are having to hand feed them all. Tyga is an excellent mum and I am so proud at how she has handled herself. She has trusted me implicitly. DEC 2019
Best of the Best for the 5th Time!!!
Ikon had an unusual day at the CRAOV show this month. He was in for a Grand but had it with held due to having no stop or cheek width. He was described earlier in the day by another judge as 'average looking'. I have always said he is an unoffensive looking boy with a nature second to none who gives cuddles and purrs to anyone. However, another Judge awarded him the Best of Breed and a further judge put him down for Best of Variety Section 4 Adult so in the end he had rather a good day especially with the competition on the bench at such a lovely well run show.

Viktori and Ikon went all 'Supreme'
What a delight these two were at the 2019 SUPREME CAT SHOW 2019.
Viktori was on exhibition only and wowed her small crowds of families that gathered around to watch her perform Hi-Fives and special waves for the cameras. Children and adults alike asked her to 'HI-FIVE' and she obeyed for a small freeze dried snack.
Ikon was a dream to handle in his main event and came home proudly holding aloft his SUPREME rosette and his first GRAND certificate. He was such a good boy all day.
Pearlings Arrive Safely
Early hours of 1st October two baby minicats were born, then two days later Pearl had to go to the vets for a Csection because her enlarged uterus wasn't contracting enough to get the further few out. After many false starts with milk drying up, hand feeding for the allotted 20hrs due to missmatched Blood Groups and further hand feeding until Pearl felt well enough and the milk returned. The little family are now doing well and we have 4 beautiful babies. 3 girls and one boy. The social media network went crazy sending happy milky thoughts to Pearl which must have worked because it came back with a vengeance! OCT 2019
Champion Gold Card Status for Tyga & Ikon
So very pleased with Tyga and Ikon at the Wyvern Cat CLub show this month. It will be their last show for a little while as we are expecting kittens from Pearl which will be a busy time.
Both babies did really well and are now, subject to GCCF approval, Champion status and can now have the title in front of their names. They achieved this is three straight shows, although, there was not much competition in their area and the best of breeds have gone to much more mature adults.
Mostly, we are just proud how they both handle at shows, especially Ikon, who is everyone's pal. SEPT 2019
Maystar Achieves GCCF Breeder Accreditation Status
Maystar are proud to announce that we have joined the breeders accreditation scheme designed by the GCCF (Governing Council of the Cat Fancy). We have to adhere to strict code of ethics as well as provide a commitment to our breed through responsible breeding.
Kitten owners will have the opportunity to tell the GCCF what they think about Maystar first hand and these are kept on file and all sales are then monitored by the Governing Council. SEP 2019
Tyga & Ikon share the Challenge
Tyga - MAYSTAREX QUEEN-OF-PRUSSIA and Ikon - Icon of Gold Blue Sun *PL were out at the Chester Show supporting Little Lord Darnley. They were showing under George Godfrey for the first time as adults and George liked Ikon, which is good as he had said on showing him a photograph in March that he was of decent type and good luck.
Now both Tyga and Ikon are on their 2nd Challenge Certificates and came home with the all important GOLD CARDS! AUG 2019
