About us


My name is Simone Mader, I live in Germany, in the south of Hamburg. My love to Persians began on a show in Freiberg. That time I was 10 years old. I saw a blue Persian and I had been overly enthusiastic about his big innocently looking eyes and his gorgeous coat. But some years had to pass by.
1984 my parents and I moved to Hamburg. The thought at a Persian grew. I bought many books and became aquainted with this breed and deepened my knowledges. In November 1986 my 1st persian cat moved in our house and became a member of our family, his name was Moritz v. Bodenteich. He was a silver-tabby with green eyes. He was a dear boy, and he neither liked exhibitions or driving with the car. In 1991 we moved in the municipality Seevetal-Maschen, 25 km from the city of Hamburg.

At the age of 15 years and 10 months Moritz had deceased. The pain was very big! Some time passed by and a cream male persian got part of our lives, his name is By Sullivans Moses of Silverdance. We noticed quickly, our Moses was bored, he needed a play-companion and so a dream came true. Finally a blue persian male and in addition also a smoke persian, My Fantasy´s Blue Ice Sensation of Silverdance, we call him BlueIce, was going to share his live with us. Our love to the persian cats became major, so my mother Inge and I adopted another black-tortie-smoke persian female, Estagel Candygirl of Silverdance, we call her Candy. With the mating of BlueIce and Candy we received our first smoke litter. For the further breed we kept Silverdance Alice, a very promising black smoke girl and from her our male Silverdance Charmer In The Night (black) and our black-smoke male Silverdance Cloud Dreamer. Dreamer was very successful by CFA, he is also our first CFA GRAND.

As next foundation female came to us Pele Mele's Silver Sunshine On Ice of Silverdance, is calling Sunny, she should enrich our shaded-cameo breeding, but after a genetic blood test of LABOKLIN, we found out, that the breeder of the cattery "Pele Mele" me aware have sold a red-smoke female. The certificate of LABOKLIN you can viewed here. Unfortunately, we had to take Sunny from the breeding, she had a lot of uterine inflammation. Only good, we kept for our breeding program her only one Kitten Silverdance Sweet Ice Princess - tortie-smoke. 
Kikiland Folie B of Silverdance a blue-cream female came to us in 2010, a very promissing female, she she fulfilled our dream in blue-cream-smoke with Silverdance Jewel. Jewel was 3rd Best smoke/shaded Persian for the show season 2013-2014 / CFA Region Europe.

Our task stands for breeding beautiful lovely persians in smoke and solid. Our slogan always stands for: Quality before Quantity. To the breed do not only belong the mating, birth and upbringing, every breeder should get some knowledges in genetics, too. On my website I show you information about the breedstandard of persians with coloured pictures, text and the genetic code.

All our cats can go free in the whole house, also our males. Our cats like the summertime most, they love it to have breakfast outside on our terrace.

Our cats are our children and they are very spoiled. Who can disagree these big asking eyes. Our cats are FeLV / FIV and PKD1 DNA negative tested.
We give them a regular (periodical) deworming and inoculation to prevent Panleukopenia, Feline rhinotracheitis Herpesvirus, Feline Calicivirosis (RCP),
Rabies and Feline Leukemia (FeLV).

I am member of CFA, Catfriends of Germany e.V. & Felidae e.V. and all my cats are registered by CFA. Until 31.08.2008 I had been also a member of the german cat club RVDE e.V. Our cattery was distinguished on 10 February 2007 with the title of the RVDE Quality Seal.
We go in the show season constantly to shows, across Europe and show our persians by the CFA and of conventional shows.
