Photo by Helmi FlickRejinald Cattery is a small home based hobby cattery, which has existed for over 29 years. It originally started in Moscow, Russia back in 1988. Our motto that we breed for quality, never for quantity. Our cats are part of the family, they live in the house with us and a small dog. We are located in Colorado Springs, CO (USA).
The owner of Rejinald cattery graduated with Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Chemistry, in November 2010 completed her Masters in Holistic Nutrition at Clayton College of Natural Health in Birmingham, AL. She is a professional high school Science teacher and an owner of a healthy pet food supply store.
The owner has 28 years of experience and knowledge in owning and breeding healthy cats. She chooses to own and breed only European imported cats. Excellent, healthy lines is the key to the classic look of plush, cheeky, stocky cats with the sweet "facial" expression.
Lilac color is the cattery's specialty. It is a beautiful light taupe color, very rare in both British and Folded cats. The kittens are placed as pets, and rarely for breeding to selected small home based catteries.
As it has been mentioned, Rejinald cattery started in Moscow, Russia, back in 1988. In 2000 a blue male and a lilac female were brought to the US.
Our lilac male was born in the cattery. He is a heavy built, plush as a teddy bear, beautiful boy, also has amazingly deep copper eyes and gives this color to his offspring. He is a Regional Winner, Supreme Grand Champion Rejinald Lilac Prince, a winner of many awards, including Best of Breed British Shorthair Cat of the Year 2007-2008 (international win, TICA), 5th Best Shorthair Cat f the Year 2007-2008, 10th Best Cat Cat of the Year 2007-2008, and Best Lilac British Shorthair of the Year 2007-2008 (international awards, TICA), He is one of the finest examples of the breed.
The queens (British Shorthair and Scottish Fold) are also of European origin and have ancestors from Holland, Belgium, Germany, France and Russia.
There are NO CAGES. All cats are strictly indoor. The kittens are raised in the house with other cats and a small dog. They are well socialized and friendly.
We are against declawing, unnecessary vaccinations, and early neutering. We primarily feed raw and promote raw feeding for carnivorous animals like cats and dogs. We try to keep our pets as natural as they can be. If you feel the same way about your future pet, and are looking for a kitten to be a part of the family, to spoil and love your cat, e-mail us (use Contact Us form on the left)!
