Selkirk Rex Breeder - Cats - Toothdale, NSW : Perfect Pets Profile

Located on the Far South Coast of NSW, I am a small home based breeder. As a retired Veterinary nurse I place great emphasis on Healthy breeding and breeding for temperament, which is very easy with the Selkirks as they have such a lovely laidback nature.

I have been a registered breeder of Selkirk Rex for 15 years and my kittens leave home with vaccinations x 2, microchipped and desexed. I raise my kittens on Royal Canin and home prepared meals. They are introduced to children and dogs.
