At Pets Galore, we provide the opportunity for you to sit and interact with your potential new family members. The key is for us to personality match the kitten/cat with their potential life long family.
The kittens and cats are both purebred and designer combination, all the regular breeds and combinations are listed below. All kittens are booked in advance so you can request notification when particular breeds, personalities, colouring's, shapes and genetics are on their way.
You receive a written health guarantee and adoption papers when you adopt any of our kittens or cats. All our kittens are sterilised, micro-chipped (we register you details onto a national database with a unique numbered tag that links to your kittens micro-chip number), vaccinated, flea, intestinal and heart worm preventatives have been carried out and are all listed in the information and advice sheets that accompany each kitten.
Further guidance on foods, worming, fleas, ticks, arriving home and settling in, grooming and house training are all provided.
British Short Hair, Scottish Folds and Scottish Shorthair's
The British Shorthair is a medium-sized to large cat and she is a very powerful one. She is heavily muscled and has heavy boning. She has a rounded, thick appearance. As a powerful cat, all components of this breed should be well developed. The British Shorthair has a broad chest, muscular neck, strong jaws and a well developed muzzle. Amazing Amber eyes.
The legs are thick and strong. The breed looks like what she originally was, a cat that was to keep rodents out of the barn and the house. The coat of the British is thick and dense and can become much longer and thicker during the winter. The texture of our British Shorthair coats is relatively silky. When you pick up a British, you should always support her back end. British should not have their hind end drag down their abdomen, as this can make them uncomfortable and insecure.
The British Shorthair is a very pleasant cat to have as a companion. She is easy going and placid. The British is a fiercely loyal, loving cat and will attach herself to every one of her family members. While the British loves to play, she doesn't need hourly attention. If she is in the mood to play, she will find someone and bring a toy to that person. The British also plays well by herself, and thus is a good companion for single people.
The British Shorthair is a thick, muscular cat so her nutrition must be carefully controlled. Despite her heavy boning and musculature, you want to make certain she keeps a proper weight and does not get out of condition. She must get adequate exercise. Interactive play may be necessary to keep the breed in good shape. The British will play when she wants to play and will find a toy or create one out of anything she finds if a cat toy is not available.
A daily brushing is important, especially during seasonal changes when the coat is thickening or thinning. Even this short hair cat can get knots in her coat if she isn't brushed regularly. Remember to be careful with the type of grooming equipment used, do not use anything metal that will hit the skin and hurt. The British tolerates being left alone. She is affectionate but also spends time just sleeping in the sun. The British is an easy cat to care for and makes a wonderful, quiet companion.
The Burmese is a medium-sized cat but when you pick her up, she feels considerably heavier than she appears. She is a stocky cat and somewhat compact but is very muscular with heavy boning. The Burmese is a cat that is round all over.
The head is round, the tips of the ears are round, the eyes, chin and even the feet are round. This breed is solid both in looks and in feel and has great strength. The coat of the Burmese is short and glossy.
Darker shading on the points may be seen in kittens, but this shading disappears with age, producing richness in any of the accepted colours. While the accepted colours for Burmese have increased in the past few years, the vast majority of Burmese are still the traditional deep brown (sable).
Younger Burmese are active, curious cats, and adapt easily to changes. We do call these great cats the 'dog personality'. However as they get older, some Burmese can become more placid, preferring to watch rather to get involved in activities. At any age, they love to look at the world around them and their favourite place may often turn out to be a window where they can observe the world outside.
Our Burmese breeder has provided kittens to Pets Galore for over 30 years now, we have many extended families and groups of friends that have brought multiple Burmese and Tonkinese to join their families and that says it all.
Above all, our Burmese are extremely outgoing personalities and are very "dog like".
Our Burmese are very agile, muscular and flexible, so provide activity, keep their brains active, provide cat poles and trees and perches. They absolutely need close human interaction, in bed cuddles, walking on a harness and retrieving like a dog. They love being adored by their parent, and love having their stomach rubbed and being petted. A daily petting session is a must for any Burmese, and frankly demanded. Don't be surprised if they are not your buddy in life, especially under the covers in winter time.
The Ragdoll is a medium to large, long-bodied cat. She is heavily boned with a long tail and a plush coat. The Ragdoll appears even bigger than she is because of the full coat. The Ragdoll has a medium-sized head, but the fur makes her face appear larger. The ears are also medium sized and are set on the sides of the head to continue the look of the triangular face. The legs are medium to long and strong. The chin should be well developed, and the oval eyes are always blue.
The Ragdoll comes in many colours and patterns. A Ragdoll with a colour point pattern can have a light body colour with contrasting, darker colour on the extremities, mask, and ears. The Bicolour Ragdoll also exhibits dark points, but will show an inverted V on the face/forehead, all four legs and the ruff being white. The Mitted Ragdoll also shows points, but in this colour pattern, the feet are white, as is the chin.
The coat can vary in length from semi-long to long, also the coat is soft, plush and silky.
The Ragdoll is a placid cat, they can go limp when you hold her, but many are just very relaxed. She is even tempered and gets along well with all family members. Changes in routine generally do not upset her. She is an ideal companion for those in apartments or small spaces.
The Ragdoll needs interaction, exercise in addition to playing room in order to keep her healthy and happy. They will just be a typical cat, around and like loving and enjoy their comfortable spot to sleep in.
While impressive, the coat is easier to care for than it first appears, brushed daily will allow for the dead hair to come out within the brush and they love it as a massaging session. This should be all that is needed in order to keep knots and tangles out of the coat.
The Designer Kitten
We have worked with our main breeders for many years and have created many combination breeds. By doing this we have beautiful and unique colouring's and markings that are not acceptable in the purebred but appear when we combine breeds.
These combinations are:
The personality of each kitten or cat is very individual, especially when combining breeds. Each kitten can portray traits from a breed or both breeds. The key is talk with us to understand each animals personality and therefore to match there personality with your family and households.
Come and visit the store, sit and wait to see which personality comes and says "Hi, I'm interested in you". It's quite an amazing behaviour to witness. The kitten will pick up the pheromones of each individual and come over and say that they are interested in you. Take the hit and say "Hi" back and consider this kitten the perfect match for your family and household.
