First cat we have had at our house was 6 year old black tortoiseshell colored Exotic female Inka Ametistas. At the beginning we had no idea about participating at cat shows or breeding, but after check of her pedigree we decided to try her chances at shows. Successful beginning, when our cat was nominated, pushed us to collect information about activities of cat clubs and catteries, breeding features and, finally, to find our cattery named Padauza, what means Playcat. At the very first show we took our notice of British Shorthair cats. We were conjured of their elegance, calmness, excellent coat and constitution. Further, being more and more interested in this breed, we found much more fine qualities, and it finally made us to engage in breeding of British Shorthair cats.
