Hello and thank you for taking the time to learn more about us! We are a small home-based cattery specializing in Scottish Folds and British Shorthairs located in the San Francisco Bay Area of California.
we are a family with four children who all have a passion for spending time with animals. During the early years, we lived on acreage where we raised dairy goats and sheep. When we moved into “town” our children became involved with 4-H and the world of rabbits and ARBA. Because of our passion for animals, we became known as the family who fostered and rehomed the local strays and orphaned feral kittens. Through our rescue and placement work, we became very involved in the care of abandoned kittens. It was from this experience that led us into learning more about cats and where we discovered the amazing world of cats! We then joined CFA and TICA where we found a wealth of information and links to other cat fanciers.
We spent a few years learning about showing and breeding before we decided on which breed we would like to adopt. It was a very difficult choice because there are so many amazing breeds out there. However, we finally settled on the British Shorthair and the Scottish Fold. Two breeds which share a great deal of history and can be cross-bred to each other. Our reasons were that they are basically old world farm cats. They are very sturdy in build, solid in temperament and ‘kick back” in personality
Since 2009, we have been showing and occasionally breeding both the British Shorthair and the Scottish Fold. We are preservation breeders. This means that we only select the best candidates to breed based on their physical & complimentary qualities. This is to ensure that their offspring will grow into classic representatives of their breed in both physical characteristics as well as temperament. Showing cats is how you determine how true to form they are by having them rigorously and objectively compared to other top cats in their breed. This is assessment is made by a trained judge who is an expert in the official standards expected of the breed.
Since 1993, we have been involved in cat & kitten rescue and continue to this very day.. Not only rescuing British Shorthair and Scottish Fold, but also any unwanted/abandoned/orphaned cat or kitten brought to us.
