Vonimp, New Zealand

Our cattery is located in beautiful New Zealand, in a very remote location. We are lucky to live on a large property where our cats have a lot of space. Our boys live in lovely log houses with large enclosures attached to them and they can go in and out as they please. Girls and babies live in the house with us.

Even though there were individual cats imported into New Zealand, there were no registered Turkish Angora breeding cats present.

I imported first five cats in early 2009. NZCF accepted the breed and first New Zealand registered Turkish Angora kittens were born end of 2009. I have since imported more lines, and I was very lucky I was allowed to buy a kitten from Ankara Zoo who is now part of my breeding program.

I am very grateful to all the breeders who have helped me bring these wonderful crazy creatures to New Zealand, as well as breeders I keep working with.

I can not imagine my life without the Turkish Angora and I am happy to see the addiction is spreading fast throughout New Zealand as people are learning about the breed.
