I discovered the breed 'highlander' in 2010 whilst researching all different breeds on the internet. I was imediatley in love, but the thought of importing scared me as I had heard so many bad stories lol.
I decided to start working on a breed of my own here instead,which would resemble a canada snow lynx(my all time favourite Felidae). It got the better of me, and I decided to take the leap and bring in some highlanders from the USA.
I contacted a-lot of breeders, who put me onto other breeders, and this went on for quiet a while, until I found someone who was happy to hold the cats for me for 9-12 months, and who also reconmended other breeders for different lines.
Finally in early 2012 I had 3 highlanders safe and sound at home with me.
I had been breeding Maine Coons for the past several years, and I opened
my lines up here by crossing my own Maine Coons, as well as other domestic breeds into my breeding program.I have specifically chosen my kittens for breeding, aiming to produce very healthy, large 'snow lynx' looking pet cats, with good thick bone,masculine
broad heads,tall in the shoulders, strong bob tails and polydactyl feet( extra toes).
It has taken 7 years to produce my 'tundras', and in December 2017 my breed became a 'reconized breed' with the rare and exotic
feline registry, with which I was on the experimental register with.
Tundras come in both short and long haired.
The short coats are thick and soft and darker in winter,
and silky smooth in summer. The long haired tundras are easy to maintain with regular brushing.
This breed have a slight 'curl' in their ear making them unique.
very passionate about breeding these stunning cats and the most important thing I look for is their temperement!
ALL my breeding Tundras have OUTSTANDING temperements which they pass down to their offspring.
