Glendoveer Abyssinians, Toronto, Canada

by Deborah
(Toronto, Canada)

I have been breeding Abyssinians for almost 20 years and specialize in outstanding personality, high activity, Ruddy abys. I do have an occasional Red kitten available, but most of the abys bred by myself are homozygous for Ruddy. I am CFA registered but have shown in CCA (Canada) and have had National Winners in this association. Some of my cats are registered in ACFA & TICA and have done very well in show there also. I do not sell breeding cats and do not provide stud service, except occasionally a kitten may be placed in a well established breeding program. At present i have abys living with breeders in Nova Scotia, Europe and USA. If you are interested in one if my abys as a beloved pet, you may have to wait a bit as i do not have numerous litters available in a year, but i would be happy to discuss an upcoming litter.

BEWARE: Cannot Be Trusted NEW
by: Anonymous

If you are looking to get Abyssinians, avoid Deborah Feltham and Heather Garvie. I write this comment, not to be vindictive, but to hopefully help others avoid the heartbreak we experienced. Both Deborah and her friend Heather promised us two Abyssinian kittens, led us on for months, and then ghosted us -- no kittens/cats, and no explanation. Imagine getting your hopes up that you will be getting kittens, building trusting connections with the breeders over months, only to have your heart broken twice and no cats. Don't take the risk.

We first contacted Deborah in April 2018, and as she had no available kittens, she directed us to her friend and fellow breeder, Heather Garvie. Heather assured us she was expecting several litters and would have kittens available for us. We were thrilled!... Then she just stopped emailing us. We waited months, hoping she would stay true to her word, but she never returned any of our emails.

We returned to Deborah 4 months later, heartbroken, hoping she would have other leads. This time, *she* had available kittens. We were so relieved! She even sent us a picture of the beauties and assured us, if we wanted them, she would save us two. We fell in love, but tried not to get ahead of ourselves. Our interest in the breed was because of mild allergies, so we wanted to meet the cats first to make sure allergies wouldn't be a problem. She agreed to have us visit with her cats before we put a deposit down. We set at least 3 tentative meeting dates, each of which was cancelled by her with different reasons, but she still communicated her intention to reschedule.

Any reasonable person would start to feel suspicious at this point, but she repeatedly assured us she would sell us two kittens, so we trusted her. She told us we could take them at the beginning of December, when they reached 4 months of age. From August to December, we were planning for these kittens, but her story changed again. It wouldn't be the beginning of December now, but before Christmas. Fine with us, but we still wanted a meeting. The last contact we had was on the phone at the end of November; there were complications about timing and which kittens we would get and it was easier to communicate over the phone. Even after all this, I still trusted her when she, again, assured us we would have the kittens but wouldn't set a meeting date. Foolish of me, for sure. I have not heard from her since that November phone call, despite emailing her, despite our agreement that we would have received the cats by now... Beginning of December, to end of December, to??? Never, clearly.

Learn from my naivety. Do not trust this breeder. You may receive more compassionate treatment, but you may be deceived as we were. Take it from me, it's not worth the risk.

Desperate for a ruddy kitten of yours NEW
by: Trudy

Dear Debbie,
Have been trying to contact you lately.
You sent me this lovely ruddy girl in 2003.
We called her Runa and kept in touch with you over the years via e-mail and pictures.
She was everything, beautiful, so very happy, loving, healthy, and perfect in every way.
At the age of 15, we recently lost her to kidney failure.
A rather common fate for geriatric cats but her departure left a big empty space in the home and with the family, she loved so much and in turn loved beyond words by us.
I respect you so very much as a breeder, your integrity and care you invest to have not just beautiful but healthy cats.
Realizing it takes time to secure one of your lovely, ruddy kittens I would like to ask if you could possibly consider me for one.
Please be so kind and let me know.
Kind regards,
Vancouver, BC

Looking for a baby brother
by: Jasmin

Hi there I am very interested in getting a baby brother for my Bengal whose name is Wallace.

I am just educating myself about these beautiful creatures that you have but what I do know is that I certainly would like the type of a bee that resembles very much the old Egyptian gods of the cat that very much looks like an Abys.

Is that possible in the near future I am hoping to bring one home for September.

If you have any information that can help me my email address is

I am interested in a baby boy who will already have the name of Oscar!

Thanks so much

With heavy heart I need to inform you about Lightning
by: Avrl

You gave me lightning all those years ago and he became the center of our world. Even when my now husband has sever allergies we worked around it because I just couldn't let him go. He truly was the end of an era as we lost Fireball 4 years prior. He's personally shone and captivated anyone within sight of him even yesterday on his last day with us. He was still trying to do his job of comfort us when we knew how unwell he was. A fighter till the end with the biggest heart there ever was.

Thank you for the opportunity of loving them so much it truly was a blessing.

Dear Ms.,

We are interested in obtaining an Abyssinian and have seen your site.

Over the years we have had Siamese, Balinese and Orientals.

A year and a half ago our Balinese, Deezer, died at the age of 16. Within the last 6 months both our Orientals died at the age of 10. They were full brothers. Miki died of kidney failure and Dezi of a failure of his red blood cell counts. Our siamese, Djinn, died at sixteen a number of years ago.

All our cats have been indoor cats and have been well loved.

this is the first time in decades that we have not had a feline friend and are missing the companionship.

Could please get back to us with further information on the availabilty of either kittens or young adults.

Leena's Books


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 and

On my other website 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 and

The Nephilim Quest Series

The first book in an epic fantasy series based on human mythology. The search for the mythical Watchers, the angels who fathered the Nephilim, the half-angels. A story that moves on three levels - our times, ancient Greece and ancient Egypt. 

Preview Nephlim Quest 1: Shadowhunter online

Perfect. Just perfect. Waking up dead one morning to find you have been evicted from your body by a cursed soul from ancient Egypt. As a result, Nina finds herself in the afterlife, in the Halfway House of those souls who had kicked the bucket prematurely. She needs the help of two bored dead teenagers, an ancient angel and a repenting demon, to get back to the land of the living.
