My love of the British Shorthair breed began in 1990 when I went to my very first cat show in Canberra. I met Irene Chandler, who at that time bred beautiful British Shorthairs under “Barcoo”. My dear Mum purchased Barcoo Tarlina who was shown for many years. My parents actually purchased 4 Barcoo British Shorthair gems and all were shown. In 1994 I fell in love with a little black boy of Irene’s who I could not resist, so I purchased him. My love affair with Brits commenced. Barcoo Black Bob was shown for some years but he really did not like it, so I kept the beautiful boy as a wonderful pet. I must say he was the best cat I have ever owned. I even taught him to roll over!!
In 2006 I commenced my British Shorthair breeding program with a beautiful Barcoo girl named Sinead. Unfortunately, I had to stop due to ill health. I am now resurrecting my breeding program again with my little Kalame Black girl – Miss Ebony.
All Queens and Sires are pre tested for genetic anomalies such as FeLv, HCM and PKD as they relate to the British Shorthair breed. They are also screened for all known transmittable diseases, therefore the parents are genetically clear and disease free cats.
