Help Us Find Homes for Cats and Kittens
Updated: Wed, Oct 1, 2014
Brigattos Cattery and Feral Feline Project teamed up to save, spay/neuter a cat colony located in Niles IL. It came to our attention that one neighborhood resident had 3 of his cats un-neutered and let them breed for a couple of years uncontrolled. We have coordinated our efforts with Niles police department and Feral Feline Project and put our time and resources to have all the animals spayed/neutered and domesticated.
It's a long process that required a lot of time and patience. I believe that all of those kittens and cats that live outside can be domesticated if you have enough patience. We decided to create a page on our site to help save those smart and beautiful felines.
The cats we offer for adoption live inside the house. All are litter trained, socialized, and used to interacting with humans. All cats have been spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, and vaccinated according to state law.
Welcome to Brigattos Cattery
At Brigattos we are dedicated to breeding healthy and happy British Shorthair cats that make affectionate companions as well as exceptional competitors at a show ring. Our British Shorthair cats are not kept in cages or enclosures, but live as a part of the family. This insures the cats' calm demeanor towards people and loyalty to the family. The only separation we observe is between males and females, and females with young kittens. Our British Shorthair cats like to cuddle and purr non-stop for hours at a time. Since birth, British Shorthair kittens enjoy love and undivided attention from the whole household.
The pedigrees of our cats include the lines of prestige catteries from the western Europe including but not limited to Belgium, Holland, Germany, France, Luxemburg, and UK. Some of the titles of our cats' ancestors are World champions, grand international champions, grand European champions etc. You can see pictures of our famous ancestors in our photo gallery.
Brigattos Cattery has been established in 2001. Breeding British shorthair cats is our hobby. We would like to produce kittens for you, so you can enjoy their wonderful personalities and get healthy and lovely companions. Getting a kitten is a very serious decision you are about to make. A cat is not a toy, it will be living with you and for you for a long time.
We take our hobby breeding cats very seriously. We spent hours playing with them and teaching them good habits. Even our 5 year old son helps us in raising babies and helps them to become quite social. British cats are great with kids! I also learned (this is not a proven fact) that some people with allergies can get along with Brits very well. All cats came to us from reputable blood lines or bred by me. Therefore, all had been tested for PKD and FeLV negative.
We believe that our cats will bring a lot of joy to your family and reduce stress accumulated throughout the day. We do not be believe in using cages as a living space, but we have to separate males from females. We prefer not to have too many cats breeding at the same time in order to provide each kitten a lot of personal attention. Thus our kittens come well socialized and ready to take a part in a new family.
At this time we have one blue stud and three queens (lilac, blue and chocolate-point). Our former stud DG CH. Brigattos Cooper Blue Star earned his title of Grand Champion by participating in just one show. He gave us wonderful kittens and is retired now. At this time a beautiful stud from Laziblues Sammy of Brigattos is going to be our rocking superstar. We love him and are proud that he is a part of our cattery.
We breed British Shorthair cats to improve the breed in conformation, gene pool and personality. Our females will only have 1-2 litters per year. If we do not have kittens we will gladly refer you to a respectable British Shorthair breeder near you.

Julia, thanks so much for your call last evening to check on our new baby Magick Merlin. You were so right, he can get up to our bed & last night he slept with us. Of course, he couldn't resist jumping at our feet on top of our covers every time we moved them & we couldn't resist playing the game! We all fell asleep with the beautiful sound of his purring. It's only been 3 days & he has made our home his home. Uses his scratching post, litter & eating well. Love him to pieces! You, as I refer to you, are the "Cat Whisperer"! Thank you so much for all your advice & being there every time we needed you. Highly recommend you & your beautiful kitties to anyone wanting to add a new addition to their family. Merlin is magick!
