Welcome to Divine Design British Shorthairs. We are previous Boston residents and exhibitors in the North Atlantic Region, but have recently moved to the Gulf Shore Region. We are a small cattery located in Austin Texas. Our cattery is registered with both the Cat Fanciers Association (CFA) and The International Cat Association (TICA), but we show primarily in CFA. We bought our first British Shorthair in 1980 and have never owned any other breed. Great Danes have also been a part of the family since the early 1980’s.
The primary goal of our cattery is to breed British Shorthairs of exceptional type, temperament and health. Many cat show judges have commented on the quality of our cats’ lush, dense coats, rich eye color and sweet, open expressions. The lineages of our cats come primarily from Great Britain and New Zealand with a blend from select American catteries. We believe that the Divine Design line has a very distinctive and unique look.
All of our kittens are raised underfoot in our home as part of the family. They are constantly handled from their first day of life and are socialized in a loving and nurturing environment. As a result our kittens have secure, well adjusted and affectionate temperaments. Although we are actively involved in showing, our main concern is in finding good, loving homes for these little treasures. A British Shorthair that is kept indoors (one of our requirements), loved, and properly cared for can live for 15 + years. We are therefore seeking homes with owners who are serious about making such a commitment to one of God’s most beautiful and fascinating creatures. It is also our philosophy that when you purchase a Divine Design kitten to be part of your family, you are not just purchasing a cat, but are gaining access to our long term support for the life of your new companion. We are available for any questions that you may have and would be delighted to provide you with information and advice.
Thank you very much for visiting us at Divine Design Brits.
