Samberkat Maine Coons



  T r i b u t e  

I would like to pay tribute to a very special person - Pamela Loud (Hissinghurst Maine Coons). Hissinghurst Maine Coons is no longer breeding, but lives on through our Katie (CH Hissinghurst Katerina-Bit of Samberkat, DM).

Pam and Patti were kind enough to let us adopt our first Maine Coon, Sam. Pam took me to my first CFA cat show and began to share her knowledge and experiences with me. She taught me what I needed to know about traveling with a cat, grooming, and show hall etiquette. I could not begin to express my appreciation to Pam for her constant advice and mentorship. I believe every breeder needs a mentor - someone who will be honest with them, keep them grounded and on track, and admonish and praise them when appropriate. Pam has done all these things with me. It is with sincere gratitude and respect that I publicly thank her for all she has done for me.

In 2008, Katie obtained the honorable title of Distinguished Merit - CH Hissinghurst Katerina-Bit, DM. Katie is a wonderful mom and has produced 7 granded offspring in only 3 litters of kittens. We look forward to many more beautiful kittens from this sweet and gentle young lady.. Katie is the foundation of Samberkat and we are truly blessed to have the privilege of continuing the legacy of Hissinghurst and Pam Loud through Katie.

Pam, thank you for being my mentor and my friend. Your words ring true everyday. The memories that I have are so sweet: the fun, the travel, the cat show dinners and the tears. What a journey ...

I think about how many people come into our lives, and some leave such a huge part of themselves... it is a beautiful day and life goes on, but boy do I miss my dear friend... take today to reflect on those precious ones the LORD places and allows in your life and tell them how much you love and cherish them... I miss Pam!
