Welcome to Purrs-of-Luv Cattery located in Southern Pennsylvaia, close to Maryland, Delaware,
Washington D.C., New York, New Jersey, & Ohio. My name is Michelle Sostar. We specialize in Himalayan Persians and
are commited to raising happy,
healthy & well socialized Himalayan Persian kittens for others to love.
Thank You goes out to ALL of the breeders of these beautiful cats that you have entrusted me with.
are creating the foundation of my cattery and breeding program. Your friendship and guidance has been a very
important part of the growth and development of my cattery. Many, many THANKS also to the many breeders that I
have met since starting in the cat fancy. I am forever grateful for your love, support, guidance and expertize
in teaching me the ropes of the cat fancy. If it wasn't for these experienced breeders, I would not be where I
am today persuing the dream I have had for cats since I was a young child. BIG HUGS to all of you, I LOVE YOU ALL!!!
An enormous THANK YOU also goes out to Livia, webdesigner of The Brush of Elegance for creating my
beautiful website for me, your dedication for giving me what I want has been exceptional and I would recommend
your service to anyone. THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!
Our goal is to bettering the himalayan breed by using the best pedigree lines in my breeding program.
Some of the lines I am currently working with are Careyata, Loralyn, Sandypaws, Almigry, Grovewood, Larix,
Oakheaven, Kittystone, Lil Luv Lyns, Jasea & Karabel to name a few.
I can offer most colors of Himalayans including lynx points. I do NOT work with Chocolate or Lilac
All my cats have been tested for FeLV (feline AIDS) and FIV (feline HIV). They have also
been PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) DNA tested by U C Davis at the University of California and all are
negative, which means, they do NOT possess the disease-causing PKD gene.
I strive to produce happy, healthy and well socialized babies to show and be pampered beloved pets for others
to love. Each cat/kitten is special in their own way, but all deserve to be treated as you would your human "child".
All of my cats & kittens are raised underfoot around children (in a Family Daycare setting) to ensure sweet
temperments & purrsonalities. All babies are handled and spoiled from birth until they leave my home/cattery
into your home.
In 8/2003, I started showing with the Cat Fanciers Association exclusively, where all my cats/kittens are
registered. I hope to show my show kitties to their highest potential and become successful in the cat fancy. I am
a member of the Atlantic Himalayan Club & The Himalayan Breed Council through CFA.
So whether you're looking for a "show-stopper" or a "pet
beauty", you've come to the right place. Feel free to contact me via email or phone with any questions you may have.
Please enjoy your visit at Purrs-of Luv Cattery.
