PLEASE READ THIS PAGE CAREFULLY BEFORE CONTACTING ME
My name is Hilary Tait. I have been breeding since 1999 and my boutique cattery is in Carterton, New Zealand.
I have two prefixes Ellanvannin and Doublestar. I use Doublestar mostly for my tabby cats and Ellanvannin is my original prefix.
My breeding cats are my PETS. When the queens have kittens I take the pick for showing purposes and any others not required for showing can be purchased as pets only. I do NOT BREED to public requirements and over-stock my premises with cats.
Some of my breeding cats have been exported to Australia as some have been imported also. Some pets have been exported to Asia. I will only export breeding cats to registered breeders who preferably have some experience behind them. No tabbies can be exported.
My animals can use a secluded backyard purposely built for their safety and enjoyment of life. My studs will have access to this outdoor space on alternating evenings to patrol and supervise their queens. In the gallery of this website are cats I have bred or owned and that also may be owned by previous customers. Please enjoy these photos.
The website will notify of future upcoming litters on the “Kittens Available” page.Please contact me ONLY when kittens are expected or if I am offering a pet for homing that was formerly used for breeding.
Kittens may be booked with a deposit WHEN they ARE EXPECTED or BORN. A visitation to view for 2 adults is allowed at 8 weeks of age. Please DO NOT arrive with an entourage and expect to view as this frightens kittens and queens who are only used to me and my voice and radio. No handling is permitted.
NO DEPOSIT is refundable. Be aware I have the discretion to refuse to allow a kitten to be homed if I feel they are going to be placed in an unkind, dangerous or ill-informed home and the deposit will then be refunded in such circumstance.
