Bizans Turkish Angoras - Dams

Our Girls

We have several girls ready for breeding.

Unfortunately, we cannot breed at the moment, so they are all waiting.

Bizans' Clair Tessera


Born April 5, 2011

Tessa is one of 5 kittens in her litter.  The theme for that litter was Byzantine art, so her brown tabby sister was named Mosaic.  Clair means clear, and a tessera is a single piece of glass or whatever, that goes into a mosaic.

Tessa has bright, beautiful green eyes.  She is a joy, and I love her to pieces.

Von Imp Mahpeyker of Bizans


born November 30, 2011

Here I get to tell you about what a miracle May is to my life.  As I said elsewhere I had wanted a Turkish Angora since 1973, when I saw them in Ankara.  I have always wanted a "Turk from Turkey," and I have come extremely close to that in little May.  Her mother is Selena, who was a 3-week-old when Aleksandra Turjak, a Turkish Angora breeder in

Crystal showed quite well as a kitten, and we are looking forward to taking her out again for her championship.  Her photo was used in advertisements for 4 TA breeders in the 2011 Kittens USA magazine, and the 2011 Cats USA magazine.

Azima's Kiri

Born 4/19/2008

Kiri is my heart cat, the living love of my life after my Ayshe died.  I named her for the New Zealand opera singer Kiri Te Kanawa for various reasons, along the lines of the six degrees of Kevin Bacon.

In 2008 she gave birth to Kaby (short for Kiri's Baby).  Kaby was sent to Rome, Italy, as stud for Angelicats' girls, owned by Giovanni d'Amore.    Kaby has learned Italian and is producing some top-winning, gorgeous kittens and cats in European and Russian cat shows.  I'm so proud.

We're putting Kiri back with her "first husband," Azima's Sterling Splendor (Silverado) for a repeat breeding.  The world can certainly do with some more Kabys!

Azima's Az-Miras of Bizans

(Az-Miras means little legacy in Turkish.)

Born 9/05/08

Our Mira girl, with her brother Little Legacy (in English), were the last litter Barb Azan bred, and they were born in our home 3 weeks after Barb passed away.  That adorable red stripe down her nose is particularly appealing to cat show judges and "regular people" alike.  So cute! 

And what an insistently affectionate cat!  Holy cow!  She has to be pet fairly vigorously before she settles down for some "normal, just plain" petting.  We have our hands full with this one, but she's all love.

Mira was bred to Walker and presented us with FIVE beautiful kittens you can see on the Kittens page.  She's SUCH a good momcat, like her mom, Azima's Abra.  

Azima's Flash Dancer of Bizans

Born 5/25/08

Flash, one of our adorable tortie smokes, is one of the last cats we have who was filmed at Barb Azan's house and appears on Animal Planet's Cats 101.  I named her for that flash of color by her right eye. She's another sweetly affectionate Azima girl, and she passed on this trait on 9/1/10 to her two gorgeous boys, Cosmic Latte and Red Star Dancer, whom you can see on the Kittens page.
