Norwegian Forest Breeder - Cats - Victoria : Perfect Pets Profile

I established Killara Cattery in 1990 when I first started breeding Burmese cats for loving pets and show cats. I have also successfully bred and exhibited British Shorthairs, Selkirk Rex and Siamese over the past 30 years.

In 2018 I decided to take a "break" from breeding.

At the beginning of 2020 I was wooed by the beautiful Norwegian Forest Cat and have since started breeding (and showing) this magnificent breed of cat.

My kittens are bred from beautiful imported lines form many countries, ensuring genetic diversity and health. Kittens are sold as pets only, and are desexed prior to leaving home.
Kittens are raised and socialised in a loving home environment.

I have one or two litters a year, and welcome enquiries from Victoria and interstate. Initial contact should be an email outlining the type of home you can offer one of my precious babies.
