Welcome to  SALONICAT web-page devoted to my lovely breeds British Shorthair and Abyssinians cats.

My cattery was named by the city of  Thessaloniki (Salonica),  and is registered in “Association Felina Greece” (AFG), member of the WCF (World Cat Federation) and member of TICA (The International Cat Association)

Our main goal is to breed the specific breeds with ethics and love. Our cats are equal members of the family, each cat is respect for the separate and unique personalities. Our cats doesn’t live in cages, they have their own space in the house, full of toys, cat trees and there is also a sheltered outdoor area where they can go. Much attention is paid to the health of our cats. Their diet consists of dry and fresh high quality food which offer them all what is necessary to be healthy.

Our cats have excellent veterinary care; vaccinations, the blood-group type has already been determined by DNA. Tested for cat virus illnesses FELV/FIV. They have also been genetically tested for PKD and also been tested for HCM & Abyssinian are genetically tested for PRA and PK DEF.
