We post and email updates when kittens are about 2-3 weeks old, showing early photos, colors, male or female.

We take deposits $500 deposit to reserve the kitten of your choice until he or she is ready for a new home at the age of 12 weeks.


We usually have 2-3 litters a year and offer kittens starting from 12 weeks old. They are a big size, have good proportions, and are well-balanced kittens.

Kittens are registered at TICA, you can choose a name and we will update the records. Our kittens are vaccinated, litter box trained, and have a lot of interactions with people.

All kittens come with a requirement to alter. No breeding rights.* Ask us if you want to show the cat and have showing rights. We are always in touch and ready to advise on any issue related to the kittens.

About British shorthair breed

British Shorthair cats are balanced, affectionate, and calm. They are smart, and sociable animals with thick plush fur, bright expressive eyes, and a good-natured smile. They are constantly next to you but do not bother with their presence.  
  • The British Shorthairs get along well with children, patient and indulgent with children’s games. They will never scratch children, and they prefer to retreat rather than use their claws.
  • Both males and females make wonderful companions. The differences in personalities are mainly due to the fact that everyone has something unique. Males are about 1.5 times larger than females, but they are still excellent pets for apartments or houses, as they do not cause any harm.
Since the breed standard for both TICA and WCF was written for a male – males generally are more characteristic of the breed. Of course, size is not everything in this breed, and it is a combination of many different features that make a show cat. As breeders, we are constantly working on improving the breed. Breeding is a work in progress, and we are thrilled to call ourselves cat breeders.

Our Cats

All our cats live inside our home and are our beloved pets. They eat a well-balanced diet and have plenty of exercise, playtime, and attention.

We monitor the health of our pets and regularly conduct veterinary examinations, routine vaccinations, and tests for genetic and viral diseases.
