Full Advert Details

Riley is a 5 month old Cream Smoke & White British Longhair Kitten that is currently looking for a loving, INDOOR only home. He was going to stay with us as a future breeder, but we have changed our mind, so he is now available to a superb home as a very special and loving pet.

Riley is a very huge, happy, playful, confident boy with a super sweet and loving temperament. He is a real purr machine and adores his cuddles. He gets on well with other cats and would be fine being homed with older children that have been taught to respect animals and / or with well behaved and cat friendly dogs. We do not home kittens to homes where people are out working full time, leaving them on their own all day - our cats are used to and enjoy human company immensely.

He comes from lines imported to UK (from Belgium and Russia) and has many top, quality show winning cats behind him. His maternal Grandmother was TICAs Best British Longhair Internationally 2 years ago. Maternal Grandfather is a TICA Triple Grand Champion, achieved in just one show. This boy oozes quality, is super healthy and has a wonderful temperament - he is such a character.

Riley is vaccinated, microchipped, wormed, precautioarily flea treated, neutered, health checked three times and 100% litter trained. He has no health issues and comes from parents that have had ECG's to check their hearts and both parents have totally normal and healthy hearts.

Riley is available now to his new home and family.

If you would like to be considered for Riley, please contact us by email and we will send you our kitten questionnaire. We will only allow him go to an excellent, loving, indoor only home that will have time to groom him regularly and bath him occasionally if required.

We are long term breeders who put the wants and needs of our kittens and cats first. Please visit the guestbook on our website to get an understanding of the love and care that we lavish on our cats and kittens. We have been veterinary inspected and deemed by TICA to be an "Outstanding Cattery" for our standards and care of our cats and kitten and will only place them in homes, similar to our own, where they are loved and cherished as part of the family. Unlike many UK breeders, we health test our breeding cats to ensure the highest standards and that we're only breeding from cats in the best of health and also take hygiene in our cat family very seriously. Unfortunately HCM is a serious genetic problem in the Brits and one we take very seriously, so our breeding cats are scanned by a feline cardiologist regularly to ensure heart health. All of our breeding cats have passed heart scans and any avcailble DNA tests relevant to the British Longhair breed.

Kitten/Cat Adoption Checklist

Before contacting or visiting the advertiser for this British Longhair. Please make sure you have printed and read this checklist fully. Do NOT buy a cat or kitten from the advertiser unless you are happy that they follow all the advice on the list.


  • Do your research first
    Getting a new cat or kitten is a massive commitment, so make sure you have researched the breed fully and have the time and commitment necessary to care for the cat. You can read our detailed Information guide about cats for potential new cat owners. Also read our British Longhair Cat breed information profile.
  • Confirm that the advertiser is genuine
    You should verify this by arranging to visit the cat or kitten at the advertisers home, if they make excuses or try to ask for money or a deposit without seeing the cat, or if the advertiser attempts to deliver the kittens or meet you at any other location than their own home, then please do not agree to this. NEVER pay for a cat or send money as a deposit without visiting and seeing the cat at its home beforehand. Please read our article on avoiding potential scams.
    If you are unsure that the advertiser is genuine, please report them to us.
  • Is the Kitten over 8 Weeks of age?
    Kittens must be at least 8 weeks old and fully weaned before they can leave their mothers. Most responsible sellers will keep their kittens longer than this before they let them go to new homes. Read further information on the minimum age kittens should be before leaving their mothers
  • Check the Health of the kitten or cat
    It can be difficult for the average person to check if a cat or kitten is healthy or not, so if you decide to adopt or buy the kitten, make sure that the seller agrees that you can return them within 48 hours for a full refund after taking the cat or kitten to a Vet of your choice for a health check. The seller should be willing to let you do this. If the kitten has already been health checked by their own vet, make sure you get evidence for this in the form of vet records and phone their vet to confirm this.
  • Can the kittens be viewed with their Mother?
    The advertiser should ALWAYS let you see the kittens with their mother, and in certain circumstances should let you see the kittens father. Not being able to see the kittens mother is a sign the kittens have not been bred by the advertiser. Pets4Homes do not allow the third party sale of kittens. All litters of kittens advertised, MUST have been bred by the advertiser.
  • Is the kitten or cat up to date with their vaccinations?
    kittens should receive 2 vaccinations, the first at around 8 weeks of age and the second, two to three weeks later. Kittens should not be allowed outside until 7 days after their second injection. Cats should also receive a yearly vaccination booster. Ask the breeder which vaccinations they have had and if not, why not. If the seller has not started the kittens vaccinations, it will be your responsibility to make sure you arrange both vaccinations 7 days before letting your kitten go outside. (More Info)
  • Have the kittens been treated for worms and fleas?
    Kittens should really be wormed at around 2 weeks of age, and again at around 5 weeks of age, and finally just before they leave the seller/breeder at 8 to 12 weeks of age.
  • Is the cat/kitten registered with the GCCF, TICA or FIFe?
    If they are, then check to make sure you are given the correct documents BEFORE you decide to take the cat home. It may also be worth phoning the organisation to check the information provided is correct.
