Hi, my name’s Aliana!
My present Mum’s made it up, she says that “alien” means “from another planet”. Strictly speaking I know that I come from Tallinn, where my Mum Onika, my Mum Lena, my Dad Adolf and other cats live. (To tell the truth, Mum Lena isn’t a cat but she loves cats so much that to some extent she is also a cat, like my third Mum Tatiana.) Mum Lena runs a cattery, Perpetuum Mobile, where there are Don Sphynxes. My Mum Onika is a World Champion and my Dad Adolf is a European Champion. Aliana is my middle name, the whole name is Keisi Aliana Perpetuum Mobile. I was born on 1st January 2006. As a New Year present, as my Mum Tatiana says. She also says that when she saw my Mum Onika at the Cat Show in Lublin and then photos of me, she thought she couldn’t live without the cat that looks like a creature from another planet. She made an agreement with Mum Lena and asked her to bring me from Tallinn to Warsaw. And off we went… In Warsaw I met Mum Tatiana who I liked the minute I saw her. I was sleeping on her shoulder all the time while we were waiting for the coach to Jelenia Góra. I eavesdrop on what my Mum Tatiana says and I must admit I’m very happy when I hear she says she’s never met such an intelligent and clever cat. We just talk, she asks me question – if I feel like playing or eating, and if I want to say “yes”, I close my eye, if “no”, I shake my head. It’s a pity she never asks me if I want to have a bath or have my claws cut. She knows I’ll shake my head. I just don’t fancy that. But Mum thinks it’s a must. On the other hand I don’t mind morning washing my face and cleaning my eyes and ears and something else that is hidden under my tail… Strictly speaking I’m not very fond of the last thing but Mum says it’s necessary and Mum’s must be obeyed. And she says I’m very pleasant to touch , my body is very very warm and delicate. The same was said by the judges at the Cat Show. My skin feels like velour, warm, sometimes even hot. Now about my achievements. When I was 6 months old I got a medal and a nomination to BEST IN SHOW. When I was at my first “adult” exhibition I got two cups. One is a special award and the other is BEST OF THE OPPOSITE SEX. In February 2007 I got three medals in Lublin and became National Champion. And I’m going to take part in other Cat Shows, now it’s necessary to go abroad. Then I was at Cat Shows in Dortmund (Germany), Riga (Latvia) and Vilnius (Lithuania). And now I am an International Champion. We are going to enter other shows because we like it! In June 2007 my Mum and I went to visit my fiancé. He lives in Slovakia in the SDYRON cattery www.sdyron.sk with his Mum Marta. My Mum says he is really cute. And he is! Abrakadabra’s Universe is dark with blue eyes, like mine, and “white gloves and socks”. And on 1st September our daughter Astoria was born. You can see photos of her in the photo gallery. They are worth seeing! In Poland there are very few Don Sphynxes, I’ve heard there are a couple in Warsaw but we haven’t met so far. My breed comes from Russia. My great-great-great-grandma’s name’s Varvara, she was born in Rostov-on-the-Don in 1987. She was found on the street when she was a kitten and everybody thought she was ill as she was almost hairless. She was given different medicine but then it turned out it was a new breed similar to the one that had appeared in Canada. But nobody knows for sure where Sphynxes come from. Maybe – really from another planet or from the Parallel World, which is somewhere on the Earth but we can’t see it. Mum Tatiana read somewhere about it. Oh, I’d like to find out where I come from…
