About us


My name is Simone Mader, I live in Germany, in the south of Hamburg. My love to the persians began on a show in Freiberg, I was 10 years old. I saw a blue Persian and I had been overly enthusiastic about his big innocently looking eyes and his gorgeous coat. But some years had to pass by.
1984 my parents and I moved to Hamburg. The thought at a Persian grew. I bought many books and became aquainted with this breed and deepened my knowledges. In November 1986 my 1st persian cat moved in our house and became a member of our family, his name was Moritz v. Bodenteich. He was a silver-tabby with green eyes. He was a dear boy, and he neither liked exhibitions or driving with the car. In 1991 we moved in the municipality Seevetal-Maschen, 25 km from the city of Hamburg.

our house

At the age of 15 years and 10 months Moritz had deceased. The pain was very big! Some time passed by and a cream male persian got part of our lives, his name is
CFA PR/WPR By Sullivans Moses of Silverdance
. We noticed quickly, our Moses was bored, he needed a play-companion and so a dream came true. Finally a blue persian male and in addition also a smoke persian,
CFA CH/WCH My Fantasy´s Blue Ice Sensation of Silverdance, we call him BlueIce, was going to share his live with us. Our love to the persian cats became major, so my mother Inge and I adopted another black-tortie-smoke persian female,
CFA CH/GEC Estagel Candygirl of Silverdance, we call her Candy. With the mating of BlueIce and Candy we received our first smoke litter. For the further breed we kept
CFA CH/GEC Silverdance Alice, a very promising black smoke girl and from her our male
CFA CH/GEC Silverdance Charmer In The Night (black) and our black-smoke male
CFA GP/WPR Silverdance Cloud Dreamer
, after he was send back from the breeder out Canada. Dreamer was very successful by CFA, he is also our first CFA GRAND.

As next foundation female came to us
CFA CH & PR/GEC Pele Mele's Silver Sunshine On Ice of Silverdance

In December 2017 arrived TICA RW QGC/GIC Kranewitter Scarlett of Silverdance, a tortie persian female, to us at home. Scarlett was of 2 TICA shows very successfully. She was our first TICA Regionalwinner. Unfortuanely, in April 2018 she shown a breath problems, and she must go in vet hospital in the emergency room. She was in a oxygen tent. The breeder couldn't accept it, Scarlett should stay at home. The diagnose was shattering. Scarlett was very sick: Obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), SAM (systolic anterior motion), mitral regurgitation, aortic constriction, compensated trachycardia. Scarlett went back to the breeder, she paid me back the price for the cat, but not the transport costs and also not all for vet hospital. The bad story, video, documents of the vet hospital Lüneburg about Scarlett is to see online.

In August 2020 came to us our red female GIC Cleyniko's Fairy Tale of Silverdance. She is a sweety naughty lovely female, which takes new vortex to our cattery. Unfortunately I have not been able to exhibit her in 2020/2021 it so far because of Corona. Fairy doesn't like ring judging, so I will only show her conventionally, at all her shows she unanimously won Best in Show. I tried again with Fairy at the TICA Show in Znojmo/CZ in April 2023, she made it to the final and became TICA Champion.

Out her 1st litter with our male TICA RW SGC / GEC Silverdance Rendezvous For Night, born 08/2021, we will keep our red-smoke male Silverdance Ice Teddy Bear. Teddy was already very successful as a kitten at 2 TICA shows in Holzminden/Germany and Give/DK, a promising young male. At 8.5 months he became TICA Double Grand Champion at his 1st TICA show in the Championship / Asperen - Netherlands, and at 9.5 months he won at the conventional show of Felidae e.V. in Hamburg/Germany 3x Best of Best and BEST OVERALL.

The two younger brothers, born 08/31/2022,
Silverdance Unique Moments of BohemianAgape (red-smoke, lives in CZ) and
Silverdance Unforgettable Robin of D'Aslan (cream-smoke, lives in Arizona with the TICA Allbreed judge Sandi Lee Mattingly) are TICA Regionalwinner as kittens.

For Teddy I bought me a really cameo persian female, agouti status Aa,
IC Remilakat Tuppence of Silverdance. So I am looking forward of her offspring.

Our task stands for breeding beautiful, lovable and healthy Persians in smoke and solid. Our slogan always stands for: Quality before Quantity. To the breed do not only belong the mating, birth and upbringing, every breeder should get knowledges in genetics, too. On my website I show you information about the breedstandard of persians with coloured pictures, text and the genetic code.

An article about the smoke / shaded breeding and about the Pewter breeding was made available to me in 03/2021 by Ed Merchant, Cattery Remilakat in UK, which I translated into German and to find of the german website and may use with his permission. In this way, a big thank you to Ed.
Ed and I have discussed a lot about smoke and cameo-shaded/shell breeding, and we agree, as the GCCF, FIFé, TICA and CFA themselves discuss in their breeding guidelines that a shaded or shell is an agouti cat and a smoke is a non-agouti cat.
Since 2008 I have been trying to convey to smoke and cameo breeders which agouti status is necessary to breed "real" cameos. Many "cameo" breeders only go for the silver part, but if I mate smoke with smoke often enough and that over several generations, they will always have a higher silver part and then look like a phenotype, like a cameo, but genetically, called genotype, they are smoke cats. Cameo is the short form of cameo-shaded or also called red-silver-shaded at FIFe. So why should a red-silver-shaded cat be genetically different from a black-silver-shaded cat?

Our retired cats are staying forever with us at home. I could never give them up like many breeders do.

Silverdance Persians

All our cats can go free in the whole house, also our males. Our cats like the summertime most, they love it to have breakfast outside on our terrace.

Our cats are our children and they are very spoiled. Who can disagree these big asking eyes. Our cats tested negative for are FIV / FELV and PKD1 & pd-PRA DNA. All our cats are scanned HCM negative

I am member of CFA and TICA, and Felidae e.V. and all my cats are registered by CFA and by TICA. Until 31th August 2008 I had been also a member of the german cat club RVDE e.V. and until to End of 2019 a conveying member of Catfriends of Germany (both cats club are closed). Our cattery was distinguished on 10th February 2007 with the title of the RVDE Quality Seal.
