First, let me introduce myself. Mij name is Hele(e)n Imthorn. My husband and I live at the beautiful coast of the Netherlands, in Katwijk aan zee. We have a small cattery and I bred my first litter in 1988, which was only for fun. But that litter gave me so much joy, that until today I cannot stop breeding cats. I started out with persians, but now I also like exotic shorthairs a lot. My favourites are tabbies, in all colours.
My first priority, when it comes down to breeding cats, is, that my cats are healthy and have a sweet character. My secound is, that I want to breed cats with a great expression and a sweet, short, open look. With big eyes, small ears and a cobby body. I successfully combine: PaJean, Ghattas, Marhei, Harwood, Spellbound, Anz, Equinox, Belamy, Yuppiecat, Paquita, Bocasana, Candirand, RubyRose, Mchy, Becton, Yquem, Latin Lover, Argentovivo, Blueskyeyes, Kuorii, Vannjty, Artemis, Revillion, Parti Wai, Couronne, Wattkatz, Budmar, Polcann, Validian, Tombrocks, South Paw, Mashhad, Ezluvin, San-fe, Desmin, Heida, Zoticats, Ydem, Profecii, Jovan, Johnarah, Scrimshaw, Boberan, Agonistes, Cattrax, Bolo, Soft Magic, Bagira, Kramkatten

All our breeding cats are PKD DNA tested.
