"Miss A" is a tortoiseshell and white, long hair, rumpy, female Manx. As a kitten, Miss A strutted around like the world was her pearl and she was Miss America herself. As time went by the name stuck and she tries her best to live up to it. After a break from showing, she's once again gracing the show halls with her presence. At her first show out she placed in 3 out of the six rings. In 2011 she became a Grand Champion! Miss America was spayed February 2012 and hopes to add Grand Premier to her titles.

"Aslan" is a red tabby, long hair, rumpy, neutered male Manx. He got his name from The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Aslan has grown wonderfully in size and weight and is a solid, handsome young Manx man. He has a sweet temperament and his markings are tremendous. He's now retired living the kitty pet life.

"Cowboy" is a black and white (bi-color), long hair, rumpy riser, neutered, male Manx. His sire is GC, BW MinusDeTails Northern Exposure. His dam is Karello's Sam's Calleigh Duquesne. Cowboy achieved the title of Grand Premier at the Pawprints In The Sand cat show on February 2nd, 2008. Cowboy is a very special boy, he is very comunicative though various looks and expressions he displays. He comes when he is called and is very sweet and lays on his back to beg for wet food. Despite his markings on his face, his name came from the cute pair of little cowboy chaps he has on his behind.

"PJ" is a bi-color, black and white, long hair, rumpy, male Manx. His sire is GC, MinusDeTails Nacho Ordinaire, his dam is MinusDeTails X's and O's.

P.J. was registered with and shown in The Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA) by us. He was also registered with The International Cat Association (TICA). P.J. was shown in both organizations by Kay and Terry DeVilbiss. He achieved many titles in both associations. Show season 2006-2007 he was the best long hair Manx in the Nation and we added Regional Winner to his accomplishments in showing! P.J. like many others throughout the website, sadly are no longer with us. P.J. will never be forgotten here. His children, grand children and great grand children are still a part of Karello Cattery and his legacy.

During show season 2003-2004 Samson was CFA's 2nd Best Manx-Long Hair Division nationally, BEST Long Hair Manx and BEST Cream Tabby Manx in Great Lakes Region (4) Show season (2004-2005) Samson had another wonderful year of showing adding Regional Winner to his list of titles. ~ OUTSTANDING!! ~ WAY TO GO SAMSON!!!~

* Special "thank you" to CFA Allbreed Judges Loretta Baugh and JoAnn Miksa-Blackwell for finaling Samson, giving him the last needed points for him to grand in Championship and Premiership, seeing in Samson what was always there a "Grand" cat!

Samson made an appearence the end of show season (2006-2007). We were asked to see if he still enjoyed showing enough to participate in a Parade of Breeds at an upcoming show. Samson is retired now living with his owner Casey Joniello, his show days behind him. *Update..Sadly, we lost Samson in April of 2017. Casey and I are devastated at his loss but he lived a long, happy life til 15 1/2. He's at Rainbow Bridge with his half brother's Sam, Sammy, Tugger and Yoda.

"Sam" is a cream, classic tabby (circular lines) and white, short hair, dimple rumpy, male Manx. His sire is CH, Briar-Brae My Black Sambo, his dam is LaBearer Red Hot Tumalle of Karello. He is full brother, different litter to GC, RW Karello's Sam's I Am of Faerietail, CH, GP Karello's Sam's Bella Luna, GP Karello's Sam's Rum Tum Tugger and half brother to GC, GP, RW Karello's Sam's Son. Sam was a "One Show Grand" at 8 1/2 months old in four rings at the Buffalo, N.Y. show finishing with 314 points. A one show grand and regional win is really something that is rare for the Manx breed at this age. Manx don't usually mature completely until they're two to three years old. Sam did very well showing as a kitten, he finished Kitten Class with 2059.20 points which earned him a 9th Best Kitten Regional Award in my region. Sam was a darling Manx, we adored each other. My dreams of him being a sire were easily put aside when he was spending more time away from me (due to spraying) and less time by my side. So, I neutered him, and were much happier. (I lost Sam January 9th, 2011 to saddle thrombosis, he will always be deeply missed by me!)

Karello's Sam's Rum Tum Tugger

(I lost Tugger January22, 2018. I'm sorry...I'm still unable to update his part in the site..its so hard and upsetting. Tuggie was my FAVORITE cat in my life!)
"Tugger" is a red classic tabby and white, long hair, rumpy riser, neutered, Manx. His sire is CH, Briar-Brae My Black Sambo, his dam is LaBearer Red Hot Tumalle of Karello, DM. Tugger is full brother, same litter to Sam above, half brother to Samson above and full brother, different litter to Sammy below. He is a silly, sweet Manx fellow whom I made my lap kitty after he achieved his title of Grand Premier.

Emau's Amon-Re Star of Karello
Grand Premier



ONE SHOW GRAND!!!
Granded 09/06/03

"Re" (pronounced RA) is a silver, neutered, Egyptian Mau. Re's sire is GC, Emau's Kestrel and his dam is Emau's El Shahab, DM. Re came to us courtesy of the generosity of Melanie Morgan of Emau Cattery. Re was a "One Show Grand" at the National Capital show in September 2003. This is quite a feat to accomplish, especially at such a large, competitive show. Re has always been a fantastic ambassador for his breed. He is in his forever home as a much loved pet and companion. Mau's can decide one day they no longer want to show and that is it. This was never the case with Re!

* To learn more about these beautiful, regal, intelligent, Egyptian Mau's or inquire about availability, get in touch with Melanie Morgan. Melanie is one of the nicest people I know. Her love and dedication to her breed is uncompariable.

Tigerwings Landon of Karello
Premier

"Landon" was a brown, mackerel (straight lines) tabby, neutered, registered Devon Rex. His sire was GC, RW Dayclear Snickers of Northshore, his dam was GC, Karmacatz Sophie Kate of Tigerwings. Landon belonged to my son Ethan, he filled the void in Ethan's life when he lost his favortie Manx, Cami. Landon cames to be with us from Kathy Rutledge of Tigerwings Cattery whom Ethan loved to steward for and followed around for quite some time admiring her Devon's. Devon's are a very, very sweet, somewhat calm and a loving breed of cat. They are very people oriented, Landon thinks nothing of spending his whole day in my lap, of course he can't sit still that long. Most days, Landon could be found finding all sorts of mischief and acting in the true spirit of his breed, a Pixie. They're as naughty sometimes as they are sweet. (On July 10th, 2011 we lost Landon to lymphoma.)

* To learn more about the darling Devon Rex cat or inquire about availability, on the East coast get in touch with Kathy Rutledge or Linda Peterson. Kathy and Linda are wonderful people to work with. They have some of the most darling little Devon babies you ever saw.

Karello's Jedi Master Yoda
Grand Premier


Granded 08/09/03


"Yoda" is white with odd eyes, short hair, dimple rumpy, neuter Manx. His sire is CH, Briar-Brae My Black Sambo and his dam is Slieau's Snow White of Karello. Yoda enjoyed showing in his younger years, but found the breaks from showing were too difficult for him to get back into the swing of things. Yoda is a darling, sweet boy and is always by my side or on my lap. However, it is always on his terms, smart boy! With Sam gone, Yoda can be found on my lap or somewhere close by.

Karello Rolley Pulley
Grand Premier


Granded 11/23/99


"Rolley" is a brown classic tabby, short hair, dimple rumpy, neutered Manx. Rolley's sire is CH, Briar-Brae My Black Sambo and his dam is Briar-Brae Chi Chi of Karello. Sadly, Rolley is no longer with us but his memory lives on through his brother Tony. Each time a brown tabby kitten is born in our cattery we think of Rolley, Rolley was Karello Cattery's first Grand in CFA. Rolley was a good cat to make my first show cat, his coat length and color was easy to groom, he was patient, loving, enjoyed showing and the attention that came with it. However, he did have his one fault, he will be best remembered for, his nickname which was "Hannibal", he did not like having his hair blown dry..OUCH!

Karello's Oliver Twist
Champion, Premier

"Oliver" is a red classic tabby, dimple rumpy, neuter Manx. His sire is CH, Brair-Brae My Black Sambo and his dam is LaBearer's Lady In Red of Karello. Sadly, Oliver isn't with us anymore. Oliver never lived to become a Grand Premier but he was well on his way when I lost him. In his heart and mine, Oliver was already a Grand Premier, that's all that really matters. Oliver was a very unique cat, he was my favorite cat and best friend, he is still sadly missed.
