I have been breeding British Shorthair cats now for the last ten years and I have to say it has certainly been fulfilling watching a new life develop into such a wonderful individual character that cats are. My cats are my 'human babies' along side my beloved Great DanesNo two cats are ever the same. It has also been heartbreaking and for those of you taking away one of my babies, I thank you for giving him/her such wonderful homes that I know that they have gone to, i couldn't do this without you

I also breed Scottish Fold, these cats have such easy going temperaments and I am hoping to introduce the Fawn gene and I will be working with Rafal of Brifold Cats in Scotland, who has graciously allowed me to have his only folded female kitten in this one litter. I can't thank him enough for allowing me to have this precious girl.

We live in Hardwick, Cambridge. I would like to thank Jane at http://www.cozypetshotel.co.uk for all her help in I would recommend this cattery, it is like a second home for the cats and I didn't have any qualms about leaving them there.

Poem

This Sums us up nicely.

There's a danger you know.
You can't own just one, for the craving will grow.
There's no doubt they're addictive, wherein lies the danger
While living with lots, you'll grow poorer and stranger.


One cat is not trouble, and two are so funny,
The third one is easy, the fourth one's a honey
The fifth is delightful, the sixth ones a breeze.
You find you can live with a house full, with ease.

So how 'bout another? Would you really dare?
They're really quite easy, but Oh Lord, the hair!
With cats on the sofa and cats on the bed,
And crates in the kitchen, its no bother, you said

They're really no trouble, their manners are great.
What's just one more cat and one more little crate?
The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty.
The floor is all footprints, the furniture's dusty.

The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care?
Who minds a few nose prints and a little more hair?
So let's keep a kitten, you can always find room.
And a little more time for the dust cloth and broom.

There's hardly a limit to the cats you can add
the thought of a cutback, sure makes you feel sad.
Each one is special, so useful, so funny,
The food bill grows larger, you owe the vet money.

Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay,
Except other cat folks, who live the same way.
Your lawn has now died and your shrubs are dead, too.
Your weekends are busy, you're off with your crew.

There's cat food and vitamins, grooming and shots
And entries and travel and motels, which cost lots.
Is it worth it you wonder? Are you caught in a trap?
Then that favourite comes up and climbs in your lap.

His look says you're special and you know that you will
Keep all of the kittens in spite of the bill.
Some just for showing and some just to breed
And some just for loving, they all fill a need.

Late evening is awful, you scream and you shout
At the cats on the sofa, who refuse to get up.
The cats and the cat shows, the travel, the thrills
The work and the worry, the pressure, the bills.

The Whole thing seems worth it, the cats are your life.
They're charming and funny and offset the strife.
Your lifestyle has changed, things just won't be the same.
Yes, those cats are addictive and so is the cat game!
