OUR NAPOLEON PARENTS
To breed our second generation Napoleons we use a dwarf Napoleon Queen and a small Persian Sire or a little Persian Queen and a dwarf Napoleon Sire. We can have both, standard Napoleon (short leged kittens) or non-standard Napoleon (regular legs) in the same litter. To watch these two playing together is so much better than watching a movie...
When you look at Napoleon parents, you have to realize that our 2ndgeneration kittens may look a little differently than their 1st generation parents do. They may be smaller and their appearance will be closer to Persians. Their faces will be more like babies or dolls faces.
AIDA is our diluted CALICO NAPOLEON queen. She loves to eat and she hates to exercise. I have to put her on a diet. She has an excellent, long, silky and very dense coat, which she can manage by herself and she is a chocolate and a point carrier.
Our other CALICO NAPOLEON is CARMEN. She is also long-haired, but her coat is completely different. She is a tiny and very loving lap cat. CARMEN is mitted and she also carries genes for chocolate or lilac and point. She always behaves as a princess and our boys adore her.
(THE PICTURES OF OUR CHOCOLATE NAPOLEON BREEDERS ARE COMMING SOON.)
This boy is FIGARO and he is a Munchkin. His job is to produce some CAMEO NAPOLEONS with our SILVER PERSIAN girls . Figaro is really a "boyish boy".
"With the qualities of cleanliness, affection, patience, dignity, and courage that cats have, how many of us, I ask you, would be capable of becoming cats?
"Of all God's creatures, there is only one that cannot be made slave of the leash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve the man, but it would deteriorate the cat."
KAISER OPERA CATTERY
As you can see on AMADEUS' profile - his face is closer to "a doll face" than to a regular "cat face" but the nose is still a little longer than Persian nose, which means - no tear stains!
BOHEMIAN GIRL (with her short nose) is a Persian.

Here you can compare:
FIGARO - with a long nose - is a Munchkin.
BOHEMIAN GIRL- with a short nose - is a Persian.
AMADEUS' nose (Napoleon) and profile is just in between.
Kaiser Opera's SNOW WHITE is our new NAPOLEON GIRL, which we kept as a breeder. She is Shaded Silver, she is very, very small with tiny, short legs. We are hoping to have some very special Napoleon kittens from her this summer.
