We love the Scottish Shorthair and Longhair Cats

We started breeding these magnificent cats in 2013 with some of our first lines were imported from New Zealand. We have many titles and awards for our cats and just adore their personalities. That is why we have kept breeding them, we have fabulous strong healthy lines and beautiful mums and dads.

Michael has a family background from Scotland (Michael Auld) and Lynda does too, with her father being a ‘Kerr’, so it is fitting we love this breed!

You would not be disappointed in a beautiful baby from Kitsinkilts Scottish Shorthairs and Longhairs.

The Scottish Shorthairs and Longhairs Breed

The first Scottish Shorthair was born to a litter on a Scottish farm in 1961. The breed has developed to be a breed of medium-sized cats with knowing, big round eyes and its ears straight. In fact in its early years, this striking cat was frequently confused with the British Shorthair despite it having a longer tail, longer legs and a different coat texture! In actual fact, the Scottish Shorthair is more closely related to its litter mate – the Scottish Fold. These two ‘highland’ cats share many of the same characteristics – the Shorthair’s straighter ears being the main point of difference.

Our Scottish Shorthairs and Longhairs are an intriguing cat with a beautiful affectionate nature. Our Scottish are well known for their very friendly natures, sometimes over the top loving personalities and they really love being around their humans. We often say to people before they adopt their kitty, ‘you won’t believe me until you own him/her’ See our comments on our Facebook page. These darlings enjoy their independence and are also a sweet-natured animal that just loves human companionship and will gladly supervise all of the household activities with you.

A regular grooming will keep the Scottish Longhair in great condition. However, we find as they are only a semi-longhaired cat that their coat actually required minimal grooming and it is not a coat that matts or tangles easily. We do promote foods that assist with keeping the coats healthy and glossy, such as Royal Canin. The Scottish Shorthair however would not be opposed wonderful brush. The shorthairs have a double coat and yet we also don’t notice a lot of hair loss either. These cats are great for people who have time to play with the often, or they can be left alone, or with another feline friend happily as well. ALL our cats and kittens have grown up with felines friends, so they will adapt quite well to a home with other cats or dogs.

The Scottish Shorthairs and Longhairs will often live to 12-15 years or more and with wonderful care and nutrition can live longer.

This is a small cat with the females normally weighing about 2.2kg and the males weighing up to 4.5kg. Our Scottish also come in a vast array of colours as well.

The Scottish Shorthair is a highly adaptable cat that is equally at home in the city or the country.

If you have decided that the Scottish Shorthair or Longhair is the cat for you and can provide all the attention it needs, then please contact us.

Here is the ACF (Australian Cat Federation Inc) breed standard for this wonderful breed.

Our Kittens

Congratulations on your new beautiful Kitsinkilts Scottish kitten. You will love this baby.

Our kittens leave for their forever home from 12 weeks of age.

The price of your kitten includes having all vaccinations given, microchipping, flea treatment and worming up to date. Your kitten will be desexed and have pedigree papers.

You will receive a Royal Canin kitten care pack as well that has fabulous and helpful kitten tips.

Vaccination (F3) is against feline enteritis (severe gastroenteritis) and two forms of the cat flu (respiratory disease). Standard vaccination is given at 8 and 12 weeks of age. Two or three vaccinations may be required for complete protection depending on age.

Worming with an “all-wormer” (Milbemax, Drontal) is recommended every 2 weeks apart from 6 – 12 weeks old, then monthly until 6 months old, then every 3 months.

Feeding with small meals 3 – 4 times a day is advised. Please do not overfeed for the first few days. Milk is very over-rated and can cause diarrhea. Kitten food (dry and wet) is very strong and can cause diarrhea so we suggest feeding your kitten a mixture of kitten and adult food . Frequent small meals of beef or chicken meat or mince mixed with a small added amount of commercial adult cat food is good for the first few days. Dry food should be available. Small kittens must have tasty wet food.

We recommend that your kitten be kept indoors for life or allowed outside in an enclosure or on a harness.

Our Guarantee We guarantee you will receive a beautiful healthy kitten. If your kitten is unwell, please contact us firstly to discuss. We have been breeding for a long time and may have some helpful tips. As Michael is a vet, free veterinary advice can be given and we are contactable 24/7.

Although this is a pedigreed kitten/cat, we take no responsibility for veterinary expenses undertaken without our express permission.

Kitty Litter: Our preferred kitty litter is either a wood based pellet such as Kitter or OZ-Pet, or a paper based one, Breeder’s Choice. Please do not use crystals or clumping litter for your kitten.

Tips to settle your kitten: When you bring kitty home for the first time, please keep him/her in a small room with all his toys, litter, food and water, scratching post and bedding. This may be for a few days or more, until he/she is reassured that they are safe and they get to know their new family. It is a big change for this little one to move from our world to yours, with all new smells and places to explore. Please be patient with him/her and remember lots of cuddles help!
