Quality, Healthy and Home Raised British Shorthair Kittens

Making Families Complete - One Kitten at a Time!
I bred CFA registered Persian cats in the 1980's. The photo below is Elizabeth as a kitten and when she was 20 years old. She passed in 2008
My daughter, Noelle, with Stephanie around 1989. Stephanie was a very weak kitten that I have to hand feed. I took her everywhere in my purse along with an eye dropper of kitten milk. I gave her a couple of drops of milk every 5 minutes or so until she grew stronger. She lived to be 13 years old.
Thank you for visiting our website. We are located in Central Florida, just outside of Orlando. We don’t think of ourselves as a “cattery”, but rather, a home filled with animals because of the love they share with us. My cats aren't caged and they have free run of my house. They are all well mannered and clean, including my male cat, Teddy. We don't have "accidents" and there is no spraying. People coming to my home for the first time are surprised to find that I have several cats as there is no cat odor.
The British Shorthair cat, when compared to most shorthair breeds, are relatively calm cats when they mature. They are easygoing in nature and talk infrequently. Their "talk" is more like a gentle purr. They are very affectionate and become quite attached to the people they own. British Shorthairs are easily trained and very adaptable. They seem to get along well with all human members of the household, regardless of age, but are usually not fond of being carried around or held in laps. Let them come to you and you'll find them following you from room to room and sharing your couch and bed and keeping you company as you go about your daily routine. They do value their alone time, too, making this a good breed for a family absent from the home during the day.
No breed specific, health related problems plague the British Shorthair. However, all of my cats have tested PKD, FeLV (Feline Leukemia), and FIV (AIDS) negative. In addition, my cats are all blood type A (AA, AB or Ab). Kittens will be ready for their new homes when they are at least 10 weeks old. They will have received age appropriate prophylactic wormers and vaccinations, have had a thorough exam by my long time veterinarian. They will come with a Florida Health Certificate and TICA registration papers. (Cashmere and Chanel are not registered. Please see their page.) While nearly all of my kittens over the years have been sold as pets, I do not have a blanket policy against selling quality kittens being allowed for breeding. You must either have proven experience or prove that you are serious and conscientious by thoroughly researching the breed and what is entailed to be an animal breeder. If you need a kitten shipped to you, please research NON STOP flights from Orlando (MCO) to your airport of choice.

4/9/2019 ALL CURRENT KITTENS HAVE BEEN RESERVED. We are hoping that Trisha and Stephanie (new almost totally white seal silver shaded point female) are pregnant but it's too soon to tell. Please check back at the end of April for more information.
This was my persian stud cat. He was 13 years when this photo was taken. He was born in Louisiana, moved to Saudi Arabia with us and then to Florida, where he passed in 2003.
