Welcome to our Australian British Shorthair website. Our names are Daryl and Julie Styles. We are proud to specialize in the breeding and showing of the magnificent British Shorthairs. We are a small cattery breeding for quality, not quantity. Our kittens are of the highest quality, are affectionate and loving as well as being as genetically sound as possible and disease free.

Our breeding cats are tested for the following:

Feline immunodeficiency virus infection (FIV)

Feline leukemia virus (FeLV)

Polycystic kidney disease [genetic]

We pride ourselves on being ethical, responsible and genuine breeders.

Our breeding philosophy is to raise healthy kittens with wonderful temperaments.

As a semi-retired couple we can direct our full attention to raising your kitten. Our cats are a part of our family, so temperament is of utmost importance. All HiStyle kittens are born, reared and socialized in our home so they develop into friendly well adjusted pets, ready for their new forever homes. We ask a non-refundable deposit of $150 to be paid when you have chosen your kitten. Updated photos of your kitten can be supplied upon request. When you receive your kitten he/she will have at least one vaccination, will be micro-chipped, vet health check and desexed and come with all relevant paper work. You will also receive a kitten pack, 6 weeks pet insurance, pet pedigree, kitten care book, Advance DVD, and dry food.

Our kittens are sold with the undertaking that they are to be indoor companions only and are not to be exposed to the dangers of the outside environment unless in an enclosed area. Many people are not aware of the dangers to the kitten/cat when they are able to stray outside unsupervised, exposing them to traffic, poisons, other animals and diseases carried by stray cats, and perhaps even stolen.

An important point for you is to ensure that you are dealing with reputable people who are registered breeders. We suggest you do your research and ask the right questions. If a breeder takes offence, or does not answer your question then you can usually suspect a problem. To us breeding is about quality of temperament and health, since our cats are to be a part of YOUR family. Our kittens are raised so they will fit into your daily life with ease. Your new kitten should be relaxed and comfortable soon after arriving and within a few days will be ready to shower you with love and affection. You can help the transition process by providing a quiet, safe and secure place for them to get to know you in. i.e. the bathroom.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an e-mail.

If we are unable to provide you with a kitten we may know of other breeders who can.

Regards
