Cathole Cattery is a small boutique cattery with only a few Dames & Sires that were carefully selected for their good health, intelligence, beauty and wonderful playful personalities.
Our cattery has a distinct reputation for breeding kittens for quality rather than quantity.We set very high standards in our cattery in cleaniness to ensure the happiness and well-being of our kittens and cats.
Our kittens are also examined by a certified vet before leaving our care. With this assurance, you will know that you are getting a healthy kitten. We also provide a health guarantee, which guarantees the health of your kitten purchased, from our cattery, for one full year from congenital abnormalities.
Our kittens are hand-raised and surrounded by love from birth because we strongly believe that it dramatically improves the health and well-being of the kittens. Finally, since we consider all of our cats, first and foremost are our pets, they are never caged and enjoy roaming freely around our home and spoiled by my three children (ages range from toddler to teen-ager). This type of environment provides the perfect foundation for an extremely social and outgoing kitten.
After purchase, our customers write back with the highest compliments as to how they are amazed at how friendly and adaptable our kittens are. - I love to see the cute pictures of how our kittens are bringing joy to their new families.All photographs have been taken and edited by the owner of Cathole Cattery, Christine Stirt
((Different variations of the Minskin

The Minskin is a relatively new breed of the dwarf cat. They were developed by crossing the Munchkin (Min = minature legs) with the Sphynx (Skin = Sparse hairless coat with fur points on extremities).The Minskin is a relatively new breed of the dwarf cat.

If you are searching for a cat that is unique and loves to be held and sit on your lap your search is over.
Due to their coats being so sparse, they shed minimally and only require grooming once every couple of weeks. However, like most hairless cats, they should be bathed weekly with a mild tear-free cat shampoo. Since their coats have minimal shedding people with allergies tend to be less affected than other cats.
Minskins are very affectionate cats that love just about everyone they meet. Minskins seem to enjoy spending time with their entire family and will make a point of visiting each one throughout the day.
They are definitely lap cats and love to be doted on and pampered. However, they are usually not as demanding as many of the other breeds and are generally quiet cats.The Minskin is a very adaptable breed that fits well into almost any home.
They are an excellent choice for families with children, seniors, apartment dwellers, multi-pet homes (cats & dogs) and single owners. Thy are best suited for homes where they will be kept exclusively inside as they are sensitive to both hot and cold temperatures, and due to their rarity and unusual looks are a target for thieves. They are excellent mousers so should not be trusted around pet mice, hamsters and gerbils. Minskins are also unusual because their bodies are warm to the touch, (like a portable heating pad), which is especially desirable for: people with cold hands or arthritis or anyone that wants to cuddle with a warm furry friend.
