A Dog thinks: "He takes care of me, he guards me, he loves me,
it means, he is God!
A Cat thinks: "He takes care of me, he guards me, he loves me,
it means, I am God!


It is talked about an Abyssinian cat : «If you want to have a dog, but you have no time to take it for a walk, it would be better for you to have an Abyssinian». I can add that if you dream about a home pet which will be precious addition of interior, lying quietly in the corner which you can use from time to time, ABY is not for you!

Friendly, active, playful, sociable, intellectual...Every proprietor of an Abyssinian can complete this list of epithets infinitely.

My casual acquaintance with ABY happened on an exhibition, where I came for another cat. I had been interested in Persians before, ABY overthrew my opinion about cats fully and irreversibly. From this moment cattery D'Or PtitPrince*UA / PtiPrince began its existence.

The first, the most important and favourite my Aby, from whom all began, is Azur Neshamah Shelli - Azur. As it is known, males as a rule represent their breed more brightly than females, and Azur is its bright proof. He is beautiful and elegant. His expressive muzzle reminds a calm and confident profile of an Egyptian cat, which we can see only on old parchments or on glossy pages of books on history. Abyssinians are considered to be descendants of haughty Egyptian divine animals, and their resemblance can be seen with a naked eye.

Two pussy-cats appeared right after Azur. They were brought from France specially for him. Balenciaga de Shakiri and Blue Moon des Ombres Calines (at home Bali and Uma) are real Frenchwomen, elegant and graceful, tender and playful, careful and strict mothers

Having visited a lot of exhibitions, my opinion on ideal ABY has changed. Now the cattery is engaged in breeding of Abyssinians of modern type. Long hard searches have crowned success, - and I proudly represent you new studs and queens from leading catteries of the USA: Instinct, Cheetara, HighgaitPaws, Glenlea, Devande.

I am very glad that I managed to fly for the cats myself and to get acquainted with all breeders personally! And to visit all catteries, having learnt a lot of new and useful at the same time.

Now the cattery has replenished also with own children: Garfield D'Or PtitPrince, Donna Karan D'Or PtitPrince and Ioko Ono D'Or PtitPrince. But, I think, the cattery will extend further.

Our cattery registered in CFA and FIFe. We are breeding modern type of abyssinians in four main colours. Our cats - winners of the most prestigious international shows FIFe and CFA. All breeding cats are tested at UC DAVIS.

Our Large and friendly family lives in town Odessa, Ukraine. We live in a private house, that's why cats and their kittens have enough place for games. Complete freedom of movement is given to them. We do not use cages or enclosures. Cats give birth to their pussy-cats in my bedroom, where cats and their new-born kittens spend in quiet and rest their first weeks. In fact primary purpose of breeding is healthy and strong kittens. After the first two weeks these charming little balls of fur begin gradually studying to walk, run, jump, and very amusing to watch as from ridiculous child's first steps their motions turn into graceful and sure. Week by week their interest to games increases, kittens toys in teeth, just like dogs, asking us this way to play with them. They sit with children when they do lessons to show their extraordinary devotion and aspiration to become an inalienable part of the restless life of their owner.

I want to express enormous gratitude for my breeders, Biget Stephanie, Jean-Francois Maurisset ,Chris Giammarinaro, Susan Baker, Mindy Condon, Susan Vande Sande, Brad and Donna Jonson, for participation and support. Now, for more intimate knowledge, I invite all cat- fanciers to visit the site of the cattery. Abyssinian- fanciers especially! Write, call, visit our site, we are always opened for communicating with "cat owners"!


Thank you for attention!

Best regards, Sorochenko Jane

Thank you, Jane, for writing about your Abys!

What really touched my heart was the fact your cats are a part of your family, living freely with you. Your video shows this very well.

You obviously love your cats very much and it shows!

This book travels with the King Tut - Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh -exhibition on its world tour of ten cities from March 2018 onwards

Tutankhamun: In My Own Hieroglyphs tells the story, for older children, of the life and afterlife of the famous young pharaoh in his own words. Tutankhamun tells us about the trouble he got into as a child in Akhenaten's palace in the new city of Akhetaten, and how he became a boy pharaoh. As we learn, his life changed a lot when he died as a teenager, and long years of boredom started in his tomb with only his pet monkey Fingers and his treasure for company. He did meet some of the Egyptian gods, of course, and had fun scaring off tomb robbers, but it was mostly rather dull. Then one day, some new and strange people, including a Mr. Howard Carter, arrived and began to take all the treasures out of his royal tomb. Fortunately, through the eyes of his beautiful golden mask, Tutankhamun, could have fun again traveling around the world

Mr Mummific

An ancient friend of mine, Mr Mummific dictated a book about how he became a mummy - and I was his scribe and artist. The book is available at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk

On my other website www.ancientagypt101.com he continues his stories about life in ancient Egypt.

Another hilarious adventure for children with Mr Mummific, the mummy with attitude. He now tells the story of his mishaps, misunderstandings and misadventures as he leaves his tomb through the False Door to embark on the complicated and hazardous journey to the Afterlife aboard the magnificent Ship of Millions. 

Find the book at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk
