The cats of Featherland currently come in two varieties: a very small Persian breeding program specializing in chocolate and lilac varieties, and my blossoming Turkish Angora program. We are located in the Southern California area, in the beautiful rural community of Norco.

Our Turkish Angoras have been doing very well at the shows and we look forward to continued involvement with these rare and interesting cats. Visit our Turkish Angora web page for a list of kittens and available cats! Congratulations to GRP, RW Featherland's Fuzzy Slipper, our first Turkish Angora grand and home-grown Regional Winner!

This is a picture of one of our Selkirk Rex. We were one of the foundation breeders of these cats. For more information about the Selkirk Rex, see the Selkirk Rex FAQ.

We are also involved in Persian Rescue in the Southern California area. Please visit our rescue web site for information on adopting an older Persian in dire need of a new, loving home.

Featherland's chocolate and lilac Persian program made incredible progress over the 17 years we've been working with these rare colors. GRC Featherland's Weird Science is CFA's first and only chocolate or lilac grand champion in the Persian Tabby Division and was the Southwest Region's Second Best Tabby Persian. Pictured is GRC Cactusway's Chocolate Memories of Featherland, CFA's third self chocolate Persian grand champion, shown in memory of her late breeder (and my mentor) Toni Renzacci.


This is GRC RW, GRP RW Castrovalva's Sir Fred of Featherland, a red Somali neuter. Fred was Fifth Best Cat in the Southwest Region of CFA for the 1998-1999 show season. Please read Michael's heartfelt tribute to his Fred

Michael is excited about his new show kitten and feline best friend, Fig Kollibri of Featherland, a Norwegian Forest Cat. Kollibri's beautiful type and wonderful, playful temperament has been well-received by the judges so far and we look forward to an exciting show season.
