Shortly after I got my first Carthusian cat as a present in 1997, I decided to visit a cat show. After the visit the Carthusian virus had finally caught me. I decided, after reading many cat books, to get myself a tomcat and a kennel name. But it did not remain. Further exhibitions followed, but now as an exhibitor. Cats came also still in addition. You can get to know them on the following pages. In the course of the years we could already achieve great successes with exhibitions. The best thing, however, is when the own offspring are more successful than the parents. This happens too often in the meantime :-). But what the hell, great parents, super babies.
At the moment I have two breeding cats and Otto (Ch.Opal of Diamond Castle ) as breeding male. Alfonso, his predecessor, also stayed with us as a neuter, he can't live without our daughter. Wuschel (Giny Pünktchen of cool Ara), my daughter's cat, completes the zoo. My dear "first cats" Corado v.d. Ravensbergen and Orchidee vom Bernsteinlicht have meanwhile crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
Where does the kennel name come from:
In our immediate vicinity there is a place called 'Platz am wilden Eber'. Since other kennel names failed because of their length, we have chosen this name. (The kennel name should have reference to our home.) This place is located in the beautiful Schmargendorf, a sub-district of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf in Berlin. The 'Platz am wilden Eber' has been shown on television every year during the broadcast of the Berlin Marathon. Special buildings are the village church from the 14th century and the town hall Schmargendorf, which was built from 1900-1902. There is also the "Schlange", a residential complex through which a motorway runs and the Wilmersdorf combined heat and power station.
