 Welcome to Ancroft Cattery; home of the aristocrat British Shorthairs and elegant Cornish Rex.

My name is Anne and I am a Registered Breeder/Exhibitor with the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy Victoria. PER Source Number RB101470. Together with my partner we take pride in our passionate commitment to breed British Shorthairs of sound Temperament, Health and Type.

Over the years I've had the privilege and joy of loving and rearing many different types of animals, from Rescued Moggies, Burmese cats, Australian Mists, Australian Silky Terriers, German Shorthair Pointers, various breeds of Finches, Guinea pigs, Freshwater fish and the list goes on.

I have also been a Master Pet Groomer for 27 years and have had other various roles within the Domestic Pet Care Industry. My passion for animals started from my early childhood and I have always devoted myself to all my furry family members. Ensuring they have everything from a high quality diet to required Veterinary attention, as well as providing excellent behavioral and environmental   enrichment. 

Utilizing my many years and wealth of experience together with my partner, we pride ourselves in the extra special love and care we provide for all our cats and kittens. Our sole intention is dedicated to passing on our knowledge and support to new and past British Shorthair parents/families, with the assurance we have raised well socialized and well balanced healthy kittens from CHAMPION AUSTRALIAN and IMPORTED BLOODLINES.
