Welcome to our brand new website! 

This site is still under construction and will be added to over the next few months and regularly updated.


Grumble (Champion Idlebeck Bossa Nova) came home from stud two days ago so, hopefully, we will have more babies arriving at the end of July.


Zippy (Idlebeck Zipadee Dooh Dah) gave birth to two gorgeous little babies, 1 boy and 1 girl, on the 18th  March. They are now growing fast and the boy will be going off to his new family in just over two weeks time whilst the little girl will be staying with us.

For further details visit our Nursery page.

Kittens at work!

Although the basic construction of our site is now complete,
regular maintenance and renovation work will be carried out,
helped of course by our apprentice construction workers:

Come on guys, lets help..

Come on guys, let's help . . . .

Does anyone knw how this thing works?

Does anyone know how this thing works?

Hold on a minute, I've forgotten my har hat!

Hold on a minute, I've forgotten
my hard hat!

After our little workers have finished their apprenticeship with us, we are very careful when they are embarking on careers with new employers. We want to be sure that they are being offered a life-time contract which includes a suitable pension scheme when they reach retirement age. We also try to ensure that there is no chance of any of our kittens ever being made 'redundant'. Before any workers leave here, we arrange for their full IHS ('Idlebeck Health Service') vaccinations and health checks to be carried out and recorded properly, with their identity papers and work permits all in order as required by the GCCF. We also provide each new employer with a 7 day a week 'technical support' service.

Potential 'employers' of construction workers (or demolition experts!) who would like to interview one of our kittens with a view to filling a vacancy should contact Idlebeck British Shorthairs using the details shown below.

We hope you enjoy exploring the rest of our site!
