KittensRussian Blue kittens - brother and sister cuddling up

We like to give kittens our full attention and only plan for one litter at a time. They are all born in our bedroom (and occasionally on our bed…) and home-reared, so they are used to normal family life. All Dushenka kittens have excellent pedigrees and are registered with the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF) on the non-active register, as we usually only let kittens go to loving family homes and not for breeding. They are fully vaccinated, wormed, microchipped, neutered and vet-checked at least three times before they leave home, usually at about 4 - 5 months old.  We follow the GCCF Code of Ethics. They also come with 5 weeks insurance, a supply of their favourite food and cat litter, plus some toys, to smooth their transition into their new home.  We expect new owners to take as good care of our kittens as we have, and love them as much or more.  After the initial matching process prospective kitten owners are also expected to visit at least once to ensure a perfect fit between kitten and new family - no exceptions.

If you are interested in being considered for one of our kittens then please email and tell us about yourself and your family. If your initial contact suggests there may be a fit between you and one of our kittens you will be invited to visit once they are old enough. This preliminary visit is on a 'no-obligation' basis on both sides.

You can see photos and progress reports of some of our previous litters on the girls' pages.
You can also see photographs of more Dushenka kittens in the Gallery. Please contact us if you would like more information.




Cat brooch from St Michael's Monastery, Kiev

Hear our prayer, Lord, for all animals,
May they be well fed and well treated and happy.
Protect them from hunger and fear and suffering.
And, we pray, protect specially, dear Lord,
The little blue cat who is the companion of our home.
Keep her safe as she goes abroad
And bring her back to comfort us.

(Traditional Russian prayer)
