GRYFFINDOR´S British Shorthair
When I was a girl of five years I
allready knew that I will get a veterinarian (James
Herriot, the TV-Vet in the British Highlands of Yorkshire
was my favorite hero and is it still today!).
Later when I was grown up to the age
of 10 my favorite animals of sure where cats (and they
are today, too). Like many little girls I have some
be loved barn cats, which had all possibility to go
out as they liked...and disappeared. My first race kitten
was a creme female persian which died at the age of
eleven years, followed by another smoke persian which
get at the age of 14 kidney disease. When I was a studen,t
the idea of a British Shorthair Cat becomes to grow
in my mind (I had to save the money about one year).
A big blue male cat it had to be - and it was blue for
sure but a female (I had to find out about four weeks....).
Later in live the cats of my dreams becomes Silvertabbies
(especially blotched) and yes the commercial campagne
of Whiskas has settled them in my brain!
With Gryffindors (sure - the name
is because of Harry Potter; that´s the house in
Hogwarts where the best magicians come from-the strong,
the good and the noble) I connect my job as a small
animal veterinarian wiht my hobby. The idea of BKH from
Gryffindors is good British Shorthair Type, an adequate
height, a good character and health of course.
I specialiced in black-silver Tabby
(mostly blotched, sometimes spotted) sometimes golden,
too. There are plans for Shadeds in golden (perhaps
blue-golden?) because Benissa`s G-litter
was very cute.....
My cats are all parts of family (incl.
the my stud Joffi and that`s sometimes not easy...)
they can range in the flat as they want (and yes, some
of them sleep in the bed) and have a small outdoor kennel
where they can hunt insects and do their other hobbies.
When they have honeymoon they have a separate "Catroom"
for their privacy.
The idea of Gryffindors includes beside
familiar kitten raising health care programm. All cats
are tested for bloodgroups and virusinfectious diseases.
The get routine deworming and treatmanet against ectoparasitism
(that`s one of the advantage of being a vet!). GIC Joffi
of Wahrberg as our stud is tested for the heart disease
HCM and cats (as Benissa) which have Exotic Shorthair
in their pedigree are tested for PKD, too. All cats
are vaccinated against CVR + T and leukosisand have
transponder for identification.
Kittens leave their home with 13 weeks
when they have two times vaccinated against Catflu,
Panleukopenia , Rabies and Leukosis. They get a deworming
protocoll of five treatments and the new owners gets
pedigree, copies of the health certifications of parents
and a Babypackage with their customary food.
