Valinor Cattery

Somali Cats

Gr Ch Corros Crystal

Crystal was bred by Cordula, of Corros Cattery in Cape Town.  I swapped a kitten on mine (by Benjamin out of Galadriel) for Crystal in 2004.  We originally got her as a mate for Frodo Baggins, but we, unfortunately, lost him after siring just one litter.  She did produce another litter after that from Benjamin and Frodo (one each), from which we got Ivy.


She is a lovely affectionate cat, but a complete escape artist who has taken on the mantel as dominant cat since Benjamin left us.  She is a phenomenal hunter, who always brings “gifts” home with her and has even been seen fighting and killing a snake!


She make the most beautiful kittens, as you can see in Sandy (Sp Ch Valinor Palantiri) and Ivy, who by different sires.
