Taikapeikon cattery

 FI*Taikapeikon is a small cattery in southern Finland, ca. one hour drive from the capital city Helsinki. I got my breeding name FI*Taikapeikon ("Magic troll's") in the beginning of 2007 from FIFe, but my first litter was born 2011, so I'm not the fastest of human beings.


European shorthair is The Cat for me, it is cosy and familiar yet mysteriously beautiful. It has nothing too big, nothing too small, but everything is in its place, beautifully balanced. It's quite healthy cat, some problems with kidneys have been reported, but usually an European cat lives long after it's 10 years birthday.


The breed standard of the European cat



At the moment my "pack" includes two dogs and three cats. Taika (SBI n) is my oldest cat, the second oldest is Erika (EUR f 23), and she is the grandmother of my youngest cat Asa (EUR d 24). The oldest dog is Helmi, Central Asian Ovcharka, pepper and whipped cream and the youngest packmember is Iita, German Shepherd, the sweetest and kindest of the dogs ever lived.

I also have Finnish landrace chikens
