About the cattery
Under our cattery name Mahabodhi we are involved in the breeding and showing of our sacred Birmans since the autumn of 1999. Long before that we always had cats living with us but they were not pedigree cats. When we visited some cat shows we were caught by the charms of the Sacred Birman, their beautiful appearance, the silky coat, the enchanting eyes and not in the least the very social character.
The second cat we acquired (Katchanka’s Orlaya) was of show quality and from February 2000 we participated in many shows in Holland and abroad. Over the years, by careful selection of the combination of parents, we succeeded in achieving a recognizable “look” for our Birmans. A large number of Mahabodhi Birmans regularly have show successes, also abroad.
Many of the Mahabodhi Birmans obtained champion titles up to the highest level during traditional exhibitions in The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and France. These titles can be found on the pedigrees of our kittens. In 2009 we discovered TICA and since then we experience a lot of pleasure as a member of this international show community. Also in TICA our cats had a lot of success, including a number of Regional Winners and in 2010 Best Birman worldwide title for our Soraya.
Of course we are proud to breed Birmans who are successful in shows because the represent the best possible examples of the breed. But the excellent health and the very social character of our Birmans is much more important to us. The joyful and enthusiastic messages we receive from kitten buyers give great satisfaction every time.
All our cats are free to move around the house, all doors are always open. We breed two or three litters per year and spring 2015 we had the birth of our 50th litter. When we have kittens, they are raised in the living room. Our house is always open to welcome people who want to see our cats. Please do not hesitate to call or to send an e-mail.
