About Snow-Island cattery (English ver.)

Snow-Island cattery breeds Russian Blues only and is located in Sagamihara-shi Kanagawa, Japan.
Our cattery registered The Cat Fanciers Association(CFA).
Snow-Island is the only cattery who bred CFA National Winner and CFA Breed Winner in Asia.
My goal is to produce Russian Blues who have the CFA breed standard with beauty, good health and sweet personality.
I hope that the eager general fans of Russian Blue increase. So I want to breed attractive looks Russian Blues. I most of all wish to produce Russian Blues with sweet personality.

Snow-Island is a member of the CFA Russian Breed Council and a regular member of the Russian Blue Fanciers.
My breeding is not business. My cattery is small, I only have 2 to 5 litters in a year. So I can’t have kittens for sale always.

It was in 1993 that I first purchased a Russian Blue, and I started breeding in 1994.I was in the 6th grade when I first knew about a cat called Russian Blue. I was reading a book about cats at the library and the book showed Russian Blue with a caption “Winter Fairy.” It was just a drawing. But I was very intrigued, and hoped that I would have this cat in the future. My dream realized when I was university student.

I never sell kittens to pet mart or the breeder who sell to pet mart. In Japan, We can see too young kittens in pet mart always. And “to sell 2 month old kittens” is generally known. However, I will not allow it. Our kittens can leave at least after 14 weeks with finished vaccine 2 times or after they neutered/spayed.
I do not ship our cats to far cities/other countries. Because I need to meet new owners directly.

Russian Blue is wonderful cat. I am taking pleasure in living with Russian Blues!
