Carefully Selected Blood Lines

Our Exotic Shorthair and Exotic Longhair kittens are from outstanding pedigrees that trace to kings and queens from Russia and Germany and only carefully chosen domestic bloodlines. And to us, personality is just as important as appearance.

All of our Mon Chéri king cats are sweet and loving that pass down their gentle nature to their kittens. Mon Chéri king cats give us exquisitely beautiful Exotic Shorthair and Exotic Longhair kittens that are also gentle and playful.

Should you buy from a Breeder or Cattery? 

We understand there are questionable breeders and scams out there. Whether you purchase from us or another cattery, we urge you to verify legitimacy on CFA which stands for The Cat Fanciers’ Association, Inc. and is currently the world’s largest registry of pedigreed cats and known as the most prestigious pedigreed cat registering association in North America. See our Mon Chéri Cattery on CFA. We would also be happy to provide a video conference call. 

A reputable Exotic Shorthair and Exotic Longhair cattery or breeder take a lot of time and effort to make sure your kitten is just right for you and the healthiest kitten possible. “Back yard” breeders will sell kittens too early, barely weaned without shots and don’t care if you don’t get your kitten spayed or neutered. They also don’t care if you declaw. “Back yard breeders” won’t be there to help you through the process of bringing the kitten home, getting it used to you, your home, your family and your other pets. If you should need help after the purchase, a reputable breeder will be there for you, for the life of your Exotic Shorthair or Exotic Longhair kitten. Buying from a cattery will also help protect your investment from the scams online, such as buying what you think is a “cheap Exotic Shorthair kitten for sale” and it turns out to be an older Exotic Shorthair cat with health issues, inbred or not really even a Exotic Shorthair kitten.
