About Tijah Cattery
Tijah Cattery has been awarded the Most Consistent breeder - NSW Abyssinian Breeder Show 2004 and 2008.
Tijah Cattery is located in the pretty country town of Camden, about an hour southwest of Sydney Australia. Suzanne Hatcher has always had a love for animals and fell in love with the Abyssinian Cat, its Egyptian like appearance and beautiful personality. She established connections with many experienced Abyssinian Cat breeders from around the world and has always had a desire to improve the Abyssinian breed locally in Australia . Tijah Abyssinians high in demand blood lines can be found all around the world as far as Russia with fellow passionate Abyssinian breeders just like Suzanne.
In addition to Abyssinians, Tijah Cattery has also helped promote the Bengal breed by showcasing the Bengal Cat on national television through shows like Totally Wild, The Morning Show and Better Homes and Gardens. As well as promotional photo shoots for various cat products sold in stores.
The Abyssinian Cat
The origin of the Abyssinian cat is a bit of a mystery but the most common explanation begins in ancient Egypt. The modern Abyssinian does bear a remarkable resemblance to the sacred cat of the Egyptians as depicted in ancient murals and sculptures. The Abyssinian also bears a close resemblance to the African wildcat. We do know that an Abyssinian cat named "Zula" was imported from Abyssinia (now Ethiopia) to England at the end of the Abyssinian war in 1868. Unfortunately the heritage of Zula is unclear. It is also unclear just where Zula fits into the heritage of the modern Abyssinian.
The modern Abyssinian is one of the most popular and captivating breeds available today. The Aby is an active, inquisitive cat with a sleek coat, expressive eyes, lithe body and a delightful personality. Generally, the Aby is not as vocal as some breeds but the Aby does like company and will always be there wanting to help with any little task.
Occasionally there is a short waiting period for a special kitten, but normally, Tijah kittens are available throughout the year. Tijah offers descendants from top imported bloodlines from the USA.
LIVING WITH AN ABYSSINIAN
Abyssinian kittens have special purrsonalities that will make you laugh. They have a confident nature mixed with a dash of mischievousness, speed and agility. The Aby loves to play and will be in, on, under everything. Pedigree Abyssinians eat normal cat food and will use a litter box. We do however, recommend a high quality diet consisting of both wet and dry food.

The Bengal Cat
You have possibly read stories of famous people with exotic pets, such as, leopards or cheetahs. For years people have tried to domesticate the wild cat, to tame part of that wild spirit yet, retain the majestic appearance that sets them apart from the humble domestic moggy. Out of this desire came the Bengal breed, a descendant of the Asian Leopard Cat.
The Asian Leopard Cat
The Asian Leopard Cat is a shy, non-aggressive cat about the same size as a large domestic cat. Spotted Bengals have a distinctive wild appearance with beautiful background colours ranging from tawny to orange with brown to black spots, swirls and rosettes. All Bengal kittens must have spotted tummies and a black tail tip. Kittens are born exhibiting bright colour and markings, only to fade at 8 to 12 weeks, then return to splendid colour from five months to maturity.
THE BREEDERS GOALS
Our goal is to closely replicate the appearance of our wild ancestor to help take the pressure off the wild population. Great consideration has been given in the selection of hardy bloodlines to improve each generation in markings and temperament.
Occasionally there is a short waiting period for a special kitten, but normally, Tijah kittens are available throughout the year. Our speciality is the high contrasted, leopard-spotted markings with strong emphasis on wild appearance. Tijah offers descendants from top imported bloodlines from the USA and UK.
LIVING WITH A BENGAL
Bengals have special purrsonalities that will make you laugh. They have a confident nature mixed with a dash of mischievousness. Most Bengals love to play in water so don't be surprised if one joins you in the bath or shower. Bengals eat normal cat food and will use a litter box. We do however, recommend a high quality diet consisting of both wet and dry food.
