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 send money online for any cat. 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.
  • 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.

Breeders Profile


Pets4Homes member since May 2012

We are TICA registered, experienced hobby Ragdoll & British Longhair breeders that truly care about our cats and kittens. At Cwtchycats, we always try to go that step further - from us you will get healthy, well socialised kittens that are true to both breeds type and size - we stand by that with a health guarantee on every kitten. Please check out the guestbook on our website, which will give you an understanding of the quality of our kittens and the love that goes into them in their formative weeks. We import some top quality lines into the UK to ensure our lines are as diverse as possible and that our inbreeding co-efficient is as low as we can get it. We also test ALL of our breeding cats and we're very proud that all of them are clear of the known defective HCM & PKD genes that sadly can affect the Ragdoll & British Longhair breeds. We're happy to supply evidence to this effect. We also go that step further and scan all of our breeding cats' hearts with a feline cardiologist, to ensure they are healthy inside too! Many of our breeding cats have done well on the show bench and are titled. All of our kittens are born in our bedroom and raised underfoot. They are brought up with as much interactivity, love and devotion as they need to thrive and get the best start in life. We use the best quality foods and litters to ensure kittens grow to their full potential and backing us in this goal is the very best in veterinary care, using our cat specialist vet with decades of experience. We are looking for the very best INDOOR only homes for them, where they will continue to receive the love, stimulation and care that they have received at Cwtchycat Towers. We won't consider homing a kitten as an only kitten to homes where the owners are at work all day, as the kitten would be sad and lonely. We would consider two kittens going together in this instance and offer a discount for multiple kittens. Our kittens leave us at around 14 weeks old, having received at least two veterinary check ups, the full set of vaccinations and all pets will be early neutered. Our vet has been neutering early for many years, and it is MUCH easier on a kitten, than a fully grown adult cat. We never have problems, and the kittens bounce back so quickly from it. Every Cwtchycat kitten will come with a TICA Registration document, a 4 generation pedigree, 28 days Petplan Pet Insurance, a contract including our comprehensive Health Guarantee, and a comprehensive Kitten pack including Wet & Dry Food (and treats) they are used to, Litter they use here, numerous toys, a comprehensive care sheet, relevant information sheets and their very own Cwtch bed. We are able to offer as an extra, microchipping and personally delivery of your kitten. We also offer support for the lifetime of our cats (and beyond), 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If for any reason in the future, you are unable to care for a cat from us, we will take it back and find the right home for it. In return all we ask us that you please keep in touch with us, letting us know occasionally how your cat is, with some photos if possible. Many past Cwtchycat owners are now personal friends, and this is wonderful for us. If you are interested in more information about us, our cats or kittens, in the first instance, please email us, telling us about yourself and why you would like a kitten from us, we will then forward our kitten questionnaire to you. We look forward to hearing from you and our cats and kittens look forward to welcoming you into our home.
