Welcome to our website and I hope you enjoy your journey through our wonderful cats.

To give you some background; I have always been owned by a cat or two when growing up and it was a natural step
to obtain a couple of furry friends when I finally bought a home of my own. These furry guys were Bilbo, Baloo &
Timon. When I met up with Norman a couple of years later I soon realised that he too was very much into the cats
and enjoyed having a multi cat household. After moving house twice to a much larger detached property in 1999 I
decided it was time to take the cats seriously and see if I could go in to breeding and showing my own kittens. That's
when the cats went from minority to majority!!
We found a wonderful breeder and now a good friend Anne Edney of Rocadanne who entrusted to us our first Maiden
girls. Starting with just the British Shorthair and then over the last fifteen years we have acquired several wonderful
Selkirk Rex cats that have complimented my British breeding programme with our first Selkirk kittens having been
born in 2005.

My love of the Selkirk Rex has overtaken my British Breeding programme and the Amazolou Cattery became one of
the founding members of the Selkirk Rex Cat Club in 2006 to aid in the progression of the breed and it's
championship status within the GCCF.

We have exported cats in the last 15 years and will consider the sale of kittens to overseas buyers.
Please note that we do not make any profit from kitten sales. Everything goes back into the pot towards the several
thousands of pounds it costs to keep these wonderful animals and support my hobby of showing.
Please feel free to browse our site and see our wonderful boys and girls.

The Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF) is a long established body acting for the best
interests of cats.

The breeders who have signed up to the GCCF Breeder Scheme have shown their commitment
to the standards required by the scheme's code of ethics. Please note that the scheme is new
and not all the GCCF breeders will have signed up to using the scheme. This does not mean
that they are not excellent or reputable breeders.

The code requires breeders to meet various criteria, as listed below:
• They must show commitment to their breed by being a member of a GCCF affiliated cat club
for the breed.

• They must be familiar with what the breed should look and behave like and endeavour to
breed cats of this type.

• They must ensure that their own cats are well cared for.

• They must take steps to make sure the kittens they breed have the best chance of a happy,
healthy life and leave them fit and well. - Kittens, must have completed the full course of
vaccines, been examined by a vet at least twice and be GCCF registered and Insured.

• They must try to make sure kittens they breed go to loving homes and that their new owners
are given the support and help they may need to look after them.
