Welcome to Kimara Russian Blues and Silver Abyssinians, a small cattery
located in Perth, Western Australia. We hope you enjoy this website, where
we will showcase the outstanding beauty of the Russian breed, the elegant
playful nature of the Abyssinian and provide some information on these
Our Kimara cattery was first registered in 1997 with the Cat Owners
Association of Western Australia. The cats we share our life with are part of our family, so our breeding
ethos will always be to raise healthy quality kittens with exceptional
temperaments. Our very careful breeding program necessitates limiting our
breeding to small numbers. Our Kimara kittens are born, raised and
socialised in our home to allow them to develop carefree, friendly
personalities ready for a family environment.
An integral part of any breeding endeavour is the willingness to exhibit our
cats and kittens for the enjoyment of other breeders and enthusiasts, as
well as the general public. Over many years of showing at championships cat
shows, Kimara has been awarded many accolades, including numerous Best in
Show Awards, here in Perth as well as Darwin, Brisbane and Sydney.
The highlight of our show year in 2009 was our female Russian Blue cat
Kimara Sil Va Leerah winning Supreme in her class at the Co-ordinating Cat
Council of Australia National show held in Perth.
This delight was repeated in June 2010 at the Australian Cat Federation
National Show, also held in Perth, with Leerah taking out Supreme honours
awarded by an International judge.
The Perth Royal show has also held a Championship show each year. We are
extremely proud to have achieved Supreme Exhibit at the Perth Royal Show, in
both 2006 and 2007. We have also been particularly honoured to receive the
Lorna Thomas Perpetual Trophy for the 'Most Successful Exhibitor' in both
2008 and 2009. Lorna was one of Western Australia's finest judges and we
along with many others remember her fondly as a wonderful friend and mentor.

We believe our success has been the result of careful and selective breeding
and also the condition, health and nature of all our cats and kittens. We
adhere to the highest standards of nutrition for our animals. Our adult cats
and kittens are housed in a clean environment, and as social animals, we
ensure their happiness by grouping together compatible individuals. All our
animals undergo regular veterinary checks to provide peace of mind in terms
of optimal care and preventative health. We pride ourselves on being
responsible, genuine and ethical breeders.
