HAS RETIRED SINCE 2015.
to Gizmo Cattery
OUR WEBSITE IS DEDICATED TO ALL THE BEAUTIFUL
BURMESE KITTENS THAT WE WERE ABLE TO PRODUCE
OVER OUR MANY YEARS AS BREEDERS.
Jerry Miller Award was created out of
respect for a man who dedicated much of
his spare time to the advancement and
promotion of the Canadian Cat Association
during his lifetime.
This award is presented annually to a CCA
member that demonstrates the type of
devotion and passion for CCA and the cats
that we love and celebrate this evening.
Claire Lamontagne became a member of the
Club Félin de Montreal shortly after
beginning her Burmese breeding program
under the cattery name 'Gizmo'. Over the years, Claire has performed many duties
for the club including hospitality and judges'
coordinator. Claire takes her
responsibilities seriously, and when
faced with an obstacle she is able to
overcome it with charm, diplomacy and a
great sense of humour!
Claire actively promotes and increases
awareness of CCA in Quebec as a member of
the Club Félin de Montreal, and a CCA
registered breeder. Over the years Claire
has belonged to, or assisted other clubs
in Quebec with the preparations for their
shows. Her advice is often sought after
by show committees and other members of
the cat fancy.
Claire is a dedicated Burmese breeder who's
first priority is the health and
happiness of every cat she produces. Her
diligent efforts have rewarded her in the
show ring as well as in the hearts of her
kitten's new owners.
Claire Lamontagne is not someone who
searches for or needs the spotlight, but
she is deserving of it as she exemplifies
the spirit of CCA and the man the award
is named after. BRAVO
Congratulations Bob and Elaine, (June 2007)

Claire & Carole
WHO WE ARE:
have asked us when we started and how.
Carole who is my partner and oldest
daughter was first attracted to the
Burmese in the late 80s at the
Place Bonaventure Show (Le Noel Des Chats),
which is organized by Le Club Felin de
Montreal (of which we are members).
Our Cattery opened its doors in the early
90s after falling in love with the
breed and soon after it was registered
under the name of "Gizmo". Why
Gizmo. Well we all loved the Movie
Gremlins and the good guy was Gizmo. We
are registered in the CCA (Canadian Cat
Association), CFA (Cat Fanciers
Association), and TICA (The International
Our beginning as Breeders was not without
bumps, however over the years we have
made many friends in the fancy who have
helped us by sharing their experience,
time and knowledge to help make us better
breeders. Our thanks go out to each and
We have kept our cattery small, and we
specialize in the four recognized North
American Colors which are blue, platinum,
champagne and zibeline.
