ABOUT THE CATTERY
are Nick and Cathy Tricarico and we have
recently relocated from Melbourne’s South
Eastern suburbs to a small township in
Gippsland in Victoria.
We attended a number of cat shows before
deciding on the British shorthair as our
breed of choice. We were attracted to the
medium to large size of the breed, their
chunkiness and rounded heads, their short,
dense coats, hardiness and equally important
their gentle but affectionate nature.
In 1994, we welcomed our first British
Shorthair, a desexed orange eyed white male
(Macalyn White Henry), and then a black
female (Obanya Black Matilda). We breed
mainly blues, but have occasional litters of
blacks and orange-eyed whites.
We thoroughly enjoy showing our cats and
kittens, and have bred a number of cats

ABOUT THE BRITISH
The British Shorthair is a particularly strong and robust breed. It
can grow to be one of the largest cat breeds
but its gentle and shy disposition has
caused it to be described as the “gentle
giant”. The British Shorthair
has a quiet voice and is easy to care for.
British Shorthair loves being close to
you, without being clingy.
British Shorthairs are very independent, yet extremely
affectionate, very alert and quizzical and
love to follow you around the house to make
sure you do things the right way.
The British Shorthair is the ideal cat for the working person or
couple as it is not demanding. Yet the
British Shorthair is highly adaptable
and loves company and children.
