In 1996 the L'Exquisite cattery was born in a town called
Pretoria which is in South Africa. Although the "bug" bit in
1989, it was only in 1995 that I bought my first Persian - a
beautiful kitten called "Shura". Since then I have been involved
in all facets of the cat world: shows, stewarding, show manager
and I am a qualified All Breeds judge.
Very early on I fell in love with smokes
and whites, and these are two of my great “passions”
today still and thanks to a very
special lady who is no longer breeding, I have fallen hard for
the tabbies. Type is extremely important to me for show
purposes, but just as important are the health and temperament
of my cats and are what I carefully consider before I select to
breed. All my cats have been tested for PKD.
It is important to me that my cats are given plenty of room,
fresh air and sunlight and as much love as they can handle. My
boys each have their own "house" with an outside veranda in my
garden and the girls live with me in my house. My kittens are
raised in the house, underfoot and more often than not sleep on
my bed with me! All my kittens and adult cats are sold to
loving homes only and with contracts i.e.: breeder or
To those breeders who have helped me start off - THANK YOU for
the privilege of owning one of your cats. They have all
enriched my life.
I hope you enjoy visiting my site and do hope that you will call
back again. I will be adding onto this site from time to time...
