Keturah was the prefix of my mother Alexandra Chesser who began in 1966 with the purchase of a brown Burmese female Kipling Keturah, she bred and showed with distinction until about 1990 when she retired due to ill health.
We took over the prefix in 1998 and moved into British Shorthairs, a breed I had admired many years previous at the Royal Melbourne Show, we were fortunate to obtain 2 Ke-Li females as our original breeding queens and with the help of Liz Parker - Angahar, we had our first litter, which gave us our first home bred females: Keturah Princess and Keturah Duchess.
My wife Yvonne and I come from a dairy farming background and although we left the farm in 2005 and now live in Mooroopna 5kms west of Shepparton, the one thing we have always maintained is that you must feed your animals as well as possible to achieve maximum performance, therefore, we are particular about all facets of feeding and breeding our British Shorthairs. We do prefer to breed solid coloured British Creams, Blues, Lilacs but then of course we get the Blue Creams too. Temperament is our most important feature, followed by type and conformation.
We are more than happy to assist anybody who is attempting to get started in this wonderful breed.
