Hello, please let me introduce myself, I am an ethical breeder of Bluegolden, Blackgolden and Lilacgolden British Shorthaired Cats.  Occasionally, I will have Blue and Black tipped also.

I breed with integrity, and have a genuine love, affinity and empathy with animals.  I endeavour to breed to GCCF standards to improve and raise healthy happy kittens for you to love for your lifetime.

My prefix Moonhunter is registered and approved by the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF) and also registered with TICA, The International Cat Association. I am a member of The Shorthaired Cat Society and a former qualified Veterinary Nurse. I am currently awaiting approval to become a member of the Colourpointed British Shorthair Cat Club.

I aim to breed the desired ‘type’ of kittens and I have introduced the beautiful bluegolden, blackgolden and lilac BSH kittens with superb type to my lines. I have imported a wider genetic pool to the already existing UK lines. It is in my opinion good to introduce new bloodlines from strong healthy cats and kittens from abroad to enhance breeding here in the UK.  I choose the best characteristics from each of my pedigree cats to produced the desired ‘type’ of kitten. Strong, healthy pedigree kittens with charming personalities.  A huge thank you to my lovely friends both in the UK, Germany, Russia, Austria and Slovakia who have entrusted these stunning, very sensitive loving cats to my care. It has been a pleasure to take their advice, expertise and to learn from them all and I remain friends with them.  

In 2020 I will also be returning to my Black Silver Classic Tabby and Black Silver Spotted lines with Sargenta bloodlines. These kittens were my first love.  I have now come full circle and again have quality kittens here as my foundation breeding girls for next year.  

Our kittens and cats are fully vaccinated, microchipped, health checked, PKD free, homely and beautifully sociable. They actively seek out those that love them and have gentle engaging temperaments and are adoring companions.

Adult cats have free run of my cottage and gardens and venture in and out at will with complete safety.  They are able to use their natural hunting and playing instincts and lead the fullest most content of lives.

All Moonhunter kittens are born inside my cottage bedrooms, warm, relaxed and safe. I am with all my Queens as they deliver their kittens and support and reassure them all through their labour until I know all is well.  I sleep in the same rooms with Queens and new-borns for at least a week to support mum.  

Our home is a loving, nurturing family environment. We are a family with super contented pets where love and respect is in abundance.

​Our cats really are super special. If you can offer a super special home to match I will be delighted to have a relaxed chat with you.

    We recently became the owners of two of Vanessa’s beautiful kittens. Two brothers. A golden tipped and a black tipped. Both of them are healthy, confident and affectionate boys and have settled in to their new home with us very quickly. 

    From the point of initial contact with Vanessa she was very prompt in responding to any messages and enquiries and, throughout, was very helpful and accommodating. Vanessa clearly cares deeply about all of her “charges” and kept us up to date and informed both before and after we took ownership. 

    We are very happy with our new family members, and, we hope, them with us! We are looking forward to many years of joy and companionship with them.

    I’ve got my gorgeous little boy a few weeks ago from Moonhunter and couldn’t be happier. The process was seamless from the moment I chose him to the moment I picked him up and finally took him home. You can tell the kittens are brought up in a very loving, healthy and happy environment and Vanessa really cares for every single one of the kittens and wants to ensure a good and loving home is secured for the little ones – Vanessa won’t settle for a anything less!

    Vanessa answered all my kitten related questions even weeks after I brought the kitten home; it was very reassuring to know that there was someone at the other end of the phone that also knew my kitten so well.

    I found remarkable that the first thing the kitten did when I first brought him home was to go straight for the litter box. My kitten was already litter trained, even in a new environment. Pretty good, right?!

    If you are considering giving a loving home to a happy, healthy and gorgeous BSH I would highly recommend that you check out Moonhunter and give Vanessa a call or visit her cottage, you won’t be disappointed.

    My kitten was just 4.5 months old.

    Mrs. Vanessa Meier was helpful and obviously takes great care of her cats and kittens. Mrs. Meier provide good back up and comprehensive paperwork.

    My selected kitten is beautiful and has a personality which gets on well with my dog and already they often sleep in the same bed.

    I can recommend Mrs. Vanessa Meier as a cat breeder with a beautiful selection of kittens.
