There is a fast-spreading pedigree kitten scam doing the rounds. Scamsters are using the name and cattery name of registered breeders, creating credible-looking email addresses and are marketing kittens at exorbitant prices and even more exorbitant shipping fees. Of course the kittens do not exist and once payment has been received, the ‘breeder’ vanishes and the number no longer works. Some complainants have mentioned "West Africa/French accents" when they did, in early phases of the buying process, spoken to these fraudulent "breeders".
We urge you to please do due diligence and confirm email addresses and telephone numbers of breeders with the 3 South African cat registration bodies before responding to any adverts. If what is seen in an advert or email differs from what the registration bodies’ supply, BE AWARE! All reputable breeders would have to be registered with at least one of these bodies.

British Short Hair Breeders

British short hairare an easy-going breed of cat. They have a stable character and enjoy attention. 


They take well to being kept as indoor only cats, making them ideal for urban living. They are not verydemanding of attention, although they will let you know if they feel like playing.They are not "busy"cats, preferring to sit next to you or near you rather than on you. They will tend to supervise household activities either watching from a comfy perch or laying on the floor nearby.

This breed iswonderfulfor people who work, as they are very happy just to laze around the house while you are out. They don't get destructive or need other animals for company, though they do enjoy havinga cat with similar temperament around.

They like attention and enjoy being petted. They are not a very vocal breed but will meow to communicate with their owners.They tend to scratch doors to signal they want it to be opened rather than meowing like most cats. They have a tendency to follow people around, curious to know what isis going on. Some do not mind being cuddled, but most prefer to keep four paws on the ground and have you pat them rather than pick them up.
