Our established garden and home provide an idyllic haven, we share with our animals and birds. Namely our pet Ragdoll cats, Carly, Livi, Finn, Valu and Akna, our pedigree, ex-breeding dogs and now our loved pet Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Flame, Flaire, Ember and Glow, our five pet birds, including Charlie our talking Cockatiel, two Red Factor Canaries and a pair of Dilute Turquoisines, plus our adored Ragdoll breeding cats. Our latest addition is a community aquarium of tropical fish; Tetras, Guppies, Barbs, Rasboras, Swordtails, Loaches, Corydoras and Danios.

Dr. Mike is a biologist and comes from an extensive background working with animals, specialising in wildlife
biology and ecology. He has had his own international wildlife consulting business and pest management services business in the USA before returning to live in New Zealand. He has a particular interest in genetics. Gill was a farm girl who grew up surrounded by animals and many pets. She has a background in teaching and tutoring as well as social work and business ownership and management. Our decision to work full time together at home and breed these Ragdoll kittens and cats was purely based on our love for them.

Both the character and personality of the Ragdoll kittens and cats means they are always a delight to spend time with, especially in their own Catio, and it is a blessing to share the household and property with them and to watch their interactions with the Cavaliers because both the Ragdoll kittens and cats and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniels consider the others are part of their extended family.

OUR WORLD TRAVELLERS

We have successfully sent many animals overseas from Rabies free New Zealand. We take great care in ensuring
that our animals' transportation is as safe and stress free as possible and our costs are reasonable. We have received very encouraging comments from their new owners about the quality of our animals and the condition they have been in upon arrival. They have also been amazed at how quickly they have settled into their new homes. We have sent our animals to  The Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, U.K. (England), France, The United Arab Emirates (Abu Dhabi), Italy, Taiwan, The United States of America, including Hawaii, Singapore, Malaysia, Republic
of China, Tahiti, Australia and New Caledonia.
