Welcome to  Atakad website. I do hope you enjoy the new

format and layout. 

My   first   introduction   to   the   Birman   Breed   was   when   I   moved   to   Lincolnshire   in   1975.   Through   my   business   I met   one   of   the   ladies   who   imported   one   of   the   very   first   Birmans   into   this   country.   She   told   me   many   wonderful stories   about   these   gorgeous   cats.   I   decided   that   I   had   to   have   one   of   my   own. At   the   time   I   owned   two   ginger moggies   who   were   brothers   but   decided   that   it   would   not   be   fair   on   them   to   introduce   a   new   cat   into   the household so I waited until they went to the “Rainbow Bridge”, they both lived until they were 22 years of age!! I   then   went   on   the   hunt   for   my   first   Birman,   after   six   months   I   eventually   found   a   Blue   Point   male,   Oakside Blue   Dominick.   I   called   him   “Herman   the   Birman”.   As   I   was   very   active   in   the   dog   show   scene   with   my Dalmatians   I   decided   that   it   might   be   fun   to   also   try   my   hand   at   exhibiting   Birmans   so   I   then   looked for   a   show   quality   kitten   which   I   eventally   found   from   Pauline   of   Elmridge   Birmans,   a   blue   point girl   Elmridge   Blue   Jewell   (Lilley).   This   was   the   start   of   my   showing   and   breeding   of   Birman Cats. I applied for “Dakata” for my GCCF affix which is my Kennel Club affix for my Dalmatians and Toy Poodles but the GCCF would not accept it so I tried for “Atakad” (Dakata reversed) which they finally accepted. .
