Sparkle Coon Cattery (Maine Coon breeders)
Welcome to Sparkle Coon Cattery, we are Stephan and Annelie van Vuuren. We are based in Pretoria East.
We started our cattery in 2007.
Our cattery is now medium in size. We began with only one male, Blue Diamond and one female, Georgie Girl. We obtained these two cats from Lenthall cattery back in 2004. They have both now retired. It was only seven years ago that we began thinking about expanding our cattery. We then added Roselyn and Daisy which we re-homed as well to make space for the new blood. We decided to keep Rex and Lily from one of the previous litters. Rex and Lily retired as well. Six years ago we added a Poli boy named Sir Barnaby from the new owner of Lenthall Cattery, we also added Iceland Paris Emperor (Dante) and Kamsky's Russian Zarress (Zoe) from Iceland and Kamsky Cattery. Zoe was also re-homed after she had to undergo a cesarean with her previous litter. We also added a Poli girl named Miss Patti Paige from Lenthall Cattery. We kept Zoe's last female kitten named Jasmine. The newest breeding queens we decided to keep is, Cally our first Calico. We also kept Mia, Ray and Cinderella. We are planning on getting new blood in via another breeder soon.
Our kittens are HIV Aids and Leukemia negative.
We also had the pleasure get the approval of the SPCA, after a surprise visit this year.
Our kittens consists of beautiful blue, brown, black, cream, silver tabbies and torties and on occasion some with white, they are raised with love, attention and a lot of space. Our kittens tend to be very playful and love attention, so be warned they will not be sitting on your lap the whole day. The kittens will only leave our home at 12 weeks and will be registered at SACC - Southern Africa Cat Council. When they leave they are de-wormed and inoculated.
We normally re-home our cats between the age of 7-8 years, when they normally aren't interested in breeding anymore.
Currently we breed with three studs: Sir Barnaby (Barnie), Paris Emperor (Dante), and Ray
Our Queens consists of: Miss Patty Paige, Jasmine, Luna and Cally.
