My name is Carolien Ossewaarde and I have a cattery near the coast of the Netherlands, close to the towns Leiden and The Hague. Since 2002 I am orientating on several subjects, all to do with setting up and managing a cattery.
My coons and I live in a townhouse with a large fenced garden.
I spend a lot of time studying how to manage a cattery responsible, by reading about pedigrees, genetics, behavior, health, etc.
I breed with passion and love, always trying to improve the quality in both type and character, I am very careful feeding of my cats using high-quality gain free food. With regard to the health all of my adults are tested against FelV, FIV. I perform ultrasound against HMC hypertrophic cardio myopathy and PKD polycystic kidney disease and genetic testing for HCM, Pl; patellar luxation.
My kittens grow up in domestic enviroment. They are well socialized.
A kitten before leaving me must have not less then four months, this is the period of time to weaning and vaccinations. My kittens are raised underfoot and have grandchildren play with them as kittens. Fully socialized in all ways .
If possible new owners apply, they will be well screened. The kittens will go to their new homes with a contract in which very important issues are stated that are meant to contribute to a wonderful life with their new owners.
