Welcome on the homepage of the cattery De l'Eperon ! We're breeding with passion, much love and care Norwegian forest cats in the South of France.

The Norwegian forest cat is a marvellous, unique feline, whose beauty and kindness can't be toped ! With their thick, gorgeous fur, their lynx eyes, their beautiful look, their affectionate and friendly way, the close relationship they create with their owner, they do really cast a spell upon you… It's a magic cat and we could never breed another one... If you wish to be ravished, just contact us : thanks to the TGV (high speed train), only three hours separate the cattery from Paris, one from Lyon and Marseille.

Our cats share our daily lives. Everyone has space, feline company and a lot of human contact. The cats share their lives between the house and a 60 square meters pen, for them to enjoy the outside without running any risks. We breed a few litters every year, carefuly chosen.

Our cats are GSD4 negative. They are screened for HCM and CIN (kidney disease) every 18 months. Their health is extremely important to us. We breed only with lines we have enough information on !

Our goal is to breed beautiful, healthy and well-tempered cats, with stunning, "wild" looks. We take our cats to FIFe shows regularly. We really try to act in a respectful way towards our cats, the interest of the breed and the future owners of our kittens. We are members of various cat clubs (AIDS, CCFN, IG NFO, the FIFe cat-club CCLDS), whose breeding rules we respect, and communities ( lenorvegien.eu , a great forum gathering breeders and owners of NFO in a spirit of tolerance and friendship). According to the French law, our cattery is being declared and inspected by the veterinary authorities.

All cats are, of course, vaccinated every year and protected against parasites. We love our cats and all the kittens who are born in our cattery, so that we try to chose the best families for them. Our kitten leave us at the age of 13 weeks, vaccinated two times against feline panleukopenia, cat flu and leucosis, and against rabbies if they go abroad, fitted with a microchip for identification, dewormed, used to living in a family, and of course, with a French LOOF pedigree (or a FIFe pedigree upon request, since we belong to a FIFe cat club) and a veterinary health certificate. The kittens who will live as pets are neutered.

Please understand that, since we breed them with much love, we don't want to see them disappear, get stolen or killed by a car, and therefore we don't want them to be "out-runners".

Some pictures...

Our house is in the sunny South of France, not far from Avignon.

These are the outside pens we built for our cats. The total surface is 70 square meters, most of the time we let them enjoy the whole surface ! In special situations (matings...), the pen can be divided in 3 parts.

The little house which stands in the outside pen :

It's a little fun jungle...



Our cats love the outside pen.

But in the house, it's nice too...

Dogs have a complicated life too...

The most important thing is that everyone gets the time, the space, the company, love and care for his physic and psychic needs which are necessary for them to be happy, balanced and loving cats. Mental and physic health are linked, we are certain of that...

We deeply love our cats, and our cats are much more than breeding cats for us.
