Champion Devon Joi's What's Brewing


DOB - March 1, 2001
Sire: Charming Sunkist Harmony
Dam: Devon Joi's Hakuna Matata

Brew is owned by Micheline and Bob Scott and lives in Winnipeg, MB.

Micheline writes - " Our devon, Brew, is one of the most fascinating cats I've ever had. A truly loving and affectionate disposition with that little wild streak. Whether he's racing into the room or around the house, because for him life is full of play, like hide and seek, fetch, chase and all sorts of other things. He carries things around the house, everything from twist ties to fuzzy mice, even his leash to the door so he can sit outside for a bit. He's forever amusing himself and has become the best fly swatter I've ever had! He loves to cuddle and find whatever jacket or blanket is around to cozy up in if my lap isn't available. If I could have a dozen of him I'd be ecstatic. "

Sire: Grand Champion Devon Joi's The Real McCoy
Dam: Grand Champion Devon Joi's Reflective Prism

Phantom and Frodo are owned by Norm, Mariette and their daughter Natasha and lives in Winnipeg, MB.

Mariette writes - "Phantom is a shy two-year-old Smokey Black Devon girl who adores her bigger brother Frodo. They live together with Norm and Mariette and their daughter Natasha in Winnipeg where they are spoiled and coddled. Phantom likes string type toys and will chase and jump as long as her human friends will play with her. She also enjoys playing fetch for hours at a time. She loves to sleep in any cozy warm spot she can find but mostly ON one of her adopted humans. Her favorite flavor is chicken and will remind everyone in the house when it is feeding time! If she is not served just the right food for her discriminating "craving of the day" she will try to bury it which has the family in stitches."

Champion Devon Joi's Frodo


DOB - February 10, 2002
Sire: Grand Champion Devon Joi's The Real McCoy
Dam: Grand Champion Devon Joi's Reflective Prism

Mariette writes - "Frodo is our two-year-old McTabby Devon boy, who adores playing hide'n seek with Natasha. Being big brother to Phantom, he loves to play the bullying role - especially when he wants to get into the basket they share for naps. If Phantom is napping, he will start to "not so gently" grooming her until a nip on her ears sends her scooting out of the coveted basked. She will then act the part of the insulted victim for only a few moments before going back to her brother and playing upon his basically sweet personality. She will then snuggle her way back into the basket for a nice little snooze. They can also play some wild games of tag running all over the sleeping humans in the middle of the night and finally sitting on them when it is time for their six a.m. feeding. They have them trained just right! And we wouldn't have it any other way! "

Grand Champion Devon Joi's Spit'N Image


DOB - January 9, 2003
Sire: Grand Champion Devon Joi's The Real McCoy
Dam: Grand Champion Devon Joi's Spit'N Fire

Our little Miss Eve L is now a Grand Champion and she did it in two shows with finals to spare! Congrats to Ary.

Arwyn is owned by Josh and Melissa Bachynski of London, ON. Arwyn has gotten Melissa hooked on cat shows, especially after winning "nearly best of the best" at our Victoria cat show in October.

Melissa writes - "Arwyn (aka Miss Eve L) is simply the single best little creature we've ever had share our life. We've had quite a few fur kids, but Arwyn is such a character. For years I put off getting a Devon, feeling I should be rescuing, but when Josh developed cat allergies we decided to look for a Devon. From the moment she came off the plane I regretted not getting a Devon sooner. She is a constant source of joy and an amazing companion. As a bonus, when we got Arwyn, I met two of the nicest people. I can't say enough about Kathy and Kayla. I've dealt with many breeders in my life and they (Kathy and Kayla) are the best! Not only as breeders, but simply as wonderful people and two amazing friends!"

DOB - August 3, 2003
Sire: Devon Joi's Captain Tornado
Dam: Grand Champion Devon Joi's Liberty Oh

Calvin and Hobbes live in Winnipeg, Manitoba with Mary and Peter and their three children, Aaron, Nick and Rachel.

"For a family with some allergy problems, they are a wish come true. Calvin, the cream tabby, and Hobbes, the red tabby, love to sleep under the covers with the kids every bedtime. Although, they have a tendency to sniff their faces in the middle of the night. Calvin absolutely loves showers. You can count on him to be on the tub edge for every household shower. Sometimes, he ventures in! Now Hobbes loves to play and attack. He really likes to go after the kids pencils as they do homework. When they are tired of attack and chase games, they love to snuggle in anyone's lap. They are a treasure to have. Thank you, Kathy and Kayla." - Mary
