About her

At the end of September 1984, when I lived in Pretoria, I lost my feline soulmate, Grand Champion Andenika of Phitsamai. Andenika was a Brown Burmese. Twenty seven years later, at the first ABCC show of 2011, I saw a kitten that reminded me so much of my Andenika that I just had no option: I wanted her! Her breeders, Lallie and Elmien de Wet said she was not for sale, as they were keeping her. However, they invited that I could have a kitten from the next litter of the same parents. They agreed to name her Andenika in honour of my first Andenika.

From day one this cat was adored and loved by everybody that came in contact with. Her antics caused many a  laughter, her soft purr eased my mother's pain during her last days of fighting against cancer. Her agility will leave many athletes astounded. And her soft warn-off growling when annoyed is typical Burmese

More photos of Andenika
On SAASA show - 24 March 2012

Andenika is 2 months older than the Burmilla kittens that 
were sired by her own father.
Once they started to play around, they were inseparable.
We got many compliments on the super nature of the Burmillas. 
I believe sister Andenika played a key role in their upbringing.
