Our cattery is based in the Netherlands, in the town Purmerend near Amsterdam.
We got our first Persian cat in 1996, with which we bred our first litter. From then onwards the love for Persian and Exotic Shorthairs has grown into a beautiful hobby. Although we consider showing as very important to improve the quality (color and type) of our cats, we find keeping sweet, beautiful and loving personalities of our kittens more important.
In November 2016 we bought Tom from Russia a Blue Exotic male, a long-cherished wish came out. In February 2017 there came also a female our Novaa Persian Brown Patched Tabby White. (Exotic Longhair)
From 1996 to mid-2018 we bred the colors golden and silver in the variants black and bleu shaded.
On the day we finally stopped this color variety by castering our last silver male Charlie on August 21, 2018. There was born in our Cattery a litter of 4 kittens in the colors cream, blue cream and black tabby with white...
A new challenge started. The kittens of Tom and Nova...
The Persian is one of the best-known and most occurring cats of the world. The Persian is a beautiful appearance and has a funny personality. When the Persian is taken care of well, it has a beautiful coat. Persians have a very attached and balanced personality, they are good- natured, friendly and they let you coddle them. The Persian is not quickly impressed by, for example, a busy housekeeping. For people who like an affectionate cat to take care, the Persian is an ideal housemate.
The Exotic Shorthair
The Exotic Shorthair is the short-haired version of the Persian. Except for the fleeces of both types, the Persian and the Exotic are similar. The Exotic is a good choice when you like the personality of the Persian but do not want to take care of the coat intensively.
At our home
Most of the time it is very busy at our home. Our three children are grown up now, so we have more space for our cats and our Labradors.
Our cats are very special to us and they are a part of our family. The cats can play in the garden is fenced. Our dogs and cats are friends and they live together. It often happens that a cat is sleeping with a dog in a basket.
Kittens which are born at our place, grow up in a homelike feeling. All (grand) parents are PKD negative, they are tested by checking their DNA. The cats with which we breed are screened on HCM each year by echo.
The kittens can move to another home when they are 16 weeks old. They are vaccinated and dewormed. The kittens get a pedigree, owner affidavit and a health declaration.
