I have been breeding and showing Somalis for 12 years. My cats are from World Champion and Grand Europian Champion lines. I fell in love with Somalis, when I adopted my first ruddy Somali in 2001. With Som'sis Ciara (PKM + PRA-free) - my dream in blue - I had five beautiful kittens (C-litter), of which I kept the promising sorrel colored Cleopatra vom Zankelstein. From Cleopatra`s G-litter the fawn colored Gina vom Zankelstein has remained and from my H-litter I kept the blue Hypnos from Zankelstein. After neutering my stud Hypnos, I kept from Taifun vom Zankelstein, my nice ruddy boy, his lovely daughters Xenia and Yara vom Zankelstein. To continue the rare line from Iceland, I kept Amelie from Zankelstein, a little ruddy girl from Xenia vom Zankelstein and Makeda's Maserati. My Somalis have found homes not only in Germany, but also Sweden, Latvia, Austria, Switzerland, Belarus, Norway and the Ukraine.

My cats are examined by genetic testing for PRA and PK and the blood groups were determined to prevent blood group incompatibility! They were also tested for PL. Periodically, I also investigate on Giardia, Clostridium, Trichonomaden, Chlamydia and Herpes Virus. My kittens are born and raised in our home and introduced to the rest of our cat family.
We are a small in-home cattery located in Kainsbach, Bayern, Germany.
I strive to raise healthy, friendly and very sociable cats. I tell people that ask about the personality of the cats, that they are very smart, active, curious and love to be around people. If you are interested in a kitten, want to be placed on our waiting list or would like more information, you can contact us.
