In the beginning…

Our first Silver, a special cat and where our prefix Sargenta came from

GrPr & Ch Cassiobury Silver Argent (30s) 19.03.1980 – 17.01.1998

Better known as “Sargent” he was the first silver that was given to me by his breeder Ronnie Brooks. He was the Love of my Life for so many years, that it has always been difficult without him. His wins on the show bench were legendary. Top British Neuter and Cat of the Year 1984
