My name is Elin Bråtveit, and I live in
the Southern part of Norway,
together with my husband
my daughter,, and my cats.
I also have two adult childrens, but they
have left home.
My very first Chinchilla came to me in
1997, it was a Shaded silver male.
After some time another Shades silver
moved in with us, this time a little
female, called Sharice.
At this point I felt I was ready to try to
get some kittens after them, but

In 2001 the first litter of
Chinchilla and Shades was born, and it was
exciting, three Exotic's and one Persian.
My first male had to wait over four years
before he finally became a father… !
The mother to this litter is an Chinchilla
Exotic, actually from the first Chinchilla
Exotic litter born in Norway !
At this time we also have some
silvertabbies and solids ( black ), and

There are just a few breeders of
Chinchilla and Shaded in Norway, and that
is sad, because I think the
Chinchilla/shaded are the most beautiful
cats I ever seen, for me they are the
"Rolls Royce" of the Persian cats.
I also love the Golden cats, with their
warm colors, and was very pleased when I
got my Golden male Ibrahim from Denmark.
The most important thing for me, in my
breeding program, is good health, good
temper, and of course all my cats are
tested for PKD.
My cattery is
reg. in NRR & FIFe, and is
a cageless cattery,
our cats are family members.
I hope you will enjoy my Web-Site, and
please put a paw print in my guestbook
before you leave !
Take care, best wishes, Elin
