Welcome to the Dushenka website.

My name is Elisabeth Stark and I have shared my home with
Russian Blue cats since 1978.  My Dushenka prefix is registered with the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF) and I was proud to have been one of the first breeders accepted onto the GCCF's enhanced Breeder Scheme. 

I have been showing and breeding pedigree Russian Blues in Glasgow for over 40 years, and have recently bred my first-ever Russian Blacks. I have been fortunate enough to have bred 60 titled cats, as well as other prize-winning cats and kittens.  I am particularly proud to have bred the first-ever Grand-titled, Imperial-titled and UK-titled Russian Blues in Scotland - Grand Premier Dushenka Boris (born 1986); UK & Imperial Grand Premier Dushenka Xariabella (born 2008) and UK & Olympian Gold Imperial Grand Premier Dushenka Zerachiel (born 2010).  Zerachiel also had the honour of being the first-ever Olympian-titled Russian at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels.

Above that though, I have enjoyed the loving companionship of my beautiful and elegant cats, and seen my kittens bring similar joy to the families they have joined.  Very occasionally, I have Russian Blue and Russian Black kittens with affectionate natures and excellent pedigrees available to loving, permanent pet homes - you may have to wait a while, but they are worth waiting for!
