Jeepurs Devon Rex and Siamese Cats
The Historic Jeepurs Cattery

Breeder: Mrs E M Tuijl
Thetford, Norfolk, England

These pages were setup by Mrs E M Tuijl's son to commemorate our wonderful cats.

Our household was prey to many kittens running about.
Many pedigree lines feature a Jeepurs cat.
The name came from the family cristian names: JustinElaineEdward (Me, Mum, Dad)

Potted History

We got our first Devon Rex in 1977, already having our Siamese from 1976, my Father saw a devon in a magazine and wanted one. This was in the days when they were quite rare. We went to a cat show and saw that Bolrose had kittens for sale. Barbara Hudson (now Hoole) said she would keep the best one for us, as we were at a cat show I suppose she thought we were going to show our new kitten. The kitten was Bolrose Miss Muffet. At the same time Rolf Harris (disgraced Australian celeb in England) was collecting Ratbag and Smudge from the same litter.

Jeepurs fame stems form the fact that Jeepurs Charlie's Angel and Jeepurs Instant Sunshine were bought from us by 'hardened' breeders, so though Muffet only produced around 3 litters, her children considerably added to the devon world. Charlie's Angel went to Mrs Lyon (Berilleon) always a one to make the most of her cats. Instant Sunshine went to Veidals in Sweden.

Muffet's first litter was born on 6 July 1978 (Charlie's Angel was the only mature adult survivor from this one). Muffet had only three litters (Sweep & Instant Sunshine in the second of seven kittens born 7 August 1979). Last litter born 23 April 1980 four of them, two of which Mrs Sinclair had and Angela Rushbrook (Scatti) had one - 2 blue 2 white. The stud we always used for Muffet was Brylou Charlie Boy owned by Lynda Ashmore (Kralahome).

Muffet was such a unique cat that I feel that I could never have another. Also I (and my Mother) have never recovered from the heartbreak of loosing them all, which I suppose is the way when living with an animal which is bound to leave you.

My Mother decided to have a photo shoot for them both:






The photo shoot had Tigger very excited and it was a job to convince him to stay on the podium at all.
My Mum had to stand in various places and attract his attention.
There were so many rejected photos from this shoot, many of him in mid leap!
Follow his gaze and you can see where my Mother must have been standing...
He was purring his head off the whole time!

My stereos - a history

My Stereo(s) (Hi-fi) The rise and fall and rise again. A History of my stereo endeavours.

Part 1 - from a radio to the Pioneer

Part 1 | Part 2 | My stereo in June 2015

This is no boast but I love my stereo. Having a good stereo is the centre of my life and my only essential possession for someone who is not really into possessions.

Early days

I started my stereo life with a radio my Grandad gave me. Then I got my Dad's old setup (record deck and Sinclair System 2000 compact amp) which I added another one of my Grandads radio's to.

My Dad's amp was like this only black:

The Pioneer compact hi-fi

When I got a proper job I was able to start saving for something better and I bought a Pioneer compact Hi-fi which after a time I really started to hate. The Pioneer quality was lacking from this unit and really a lot of it was for show, like the twin display spectrum analyser. I hated the way the cassette and cd decks clunked about. Many things frustrated me with it, like th…

Dell KB522 Wired Business Multimedia Keyboard

Now I have a 24" monitor on my laptop I find that the £5 keyboard is really not up to it. Hence the Dell KB522 Wired Business Multimedia Keyboard. Very nice. I have started my degree in Creative and Professional Wiring this year and think I have a lot of typing ahead, hence the keyboard. It was only once I got this I realised how hard I had to hit the keys on the old one, as first of all with this one it hurt I was hitting them so hard. Pretty much sorted on the computer front now. I bought Dell hoping for longevity from this item. I don't like to buy new stuff all the time from an environmental standpoint.
