one of your magnificent kittens has been a dream come true. Humphrey has
filled our lives with happiness and laughter since the first moment we
held him in our arms. We love him so much! You have been gifted with
the knowledge on how to breed the best Persian qualities into your
precious babies.They are Beautiful , healthy, gentle, loving,
intelligent, confident and perfectly trained when you place them in
their forever homes. Jordan has also to be complimented on his part by
spending lots of his time playing with them which helps to socialize
them. It really makes a difference in their personalities being born and
raised for the first three months of their lives in a loving family
environment. We really appreciate all the effort, help, pictures &
videos, literature, etc. that you provided from the start to include us
in the entire journey of Humphrey's life. I would highly recommend you
to any dedicated Persian cat lover who wishes to adopt any of your new
kittens or adults. It is a heavenly experience!

beautiful Bella (Himalayan) from Karen as a friend for our existing Persian
Beemer. He loves having her around and they often play together. She has
settled in very well to her new home and we all love her very much. Karen
provided a lot of useful information on looking after our baby and always
responded to any questions. We had a great experience and I would highly
recommend one of Karen's babies if you are looking for a himalayan. Thanks

Our little Persian cat is an absolute delight .
Everything we hoped for and more. Congratulations to you for breeding
something so small at the moment but growing quickly that brings so much
joy to Nicole and myself. It was well schooled in everything ,toilet,
playing and cuddles. Nicole would buy more if she could but I would
strongly recommend to anyone your cattery. The way Sophie was presented
to us was very professional and we loved the updates prior to pickup.

Our beautiful kitten
“Tom” came to us from Karen fully house trained and pleasure to handle in every
aspect, because he has been raised in a family environment he fitted straight
into our lives with out any fuss. He is so much fun for our daughter who
absolutely loves him, as soon as she gets home from school Tom sits up beside
her to help with homework, she also puts him on a lead and walks him outside
(like a dog) takes him down to the stables, nothing ever bothers Tom he is up
for anything. Karen is a excellent reputable breeder to purchase a kitten from,
I studied the Himalayan breed for sometime now and once I had seen the
wonderful cats that Karen has bred I placed my order immediately. Thank you
and Grace. 0401 711721
We wanted to
let you know how happy we are with our beautiful blue point kitten Gypsy.
Purchasing him from you is the best decision our family has ever made, we all
love him to bits. He is so curious about everything going on around him and so
smart that I tell my teenage daughters to keep their phones and ipads away
because he will probably start using them! Initially we were a bit apprehensive
about introducing the cat to our older dog, but needn't have worried, Gypsy soon
showed who was boss and entertains us all with his antics. The dog is now quite
happy to share her space with him. Gypsy is both playful and loving and loves
being groomed and greeting us with loud purrs when we wake in the morning.
Thanks again for providing such a loveable little creature and for all your
guidance in settling him in to our home,

I would like to
say thanks to Karen Thomson for my beautiful 'Skyler Blu' Persian Himalayan
tabby colourpoint feline. Blu arrived in Cairns from Melbourne on 27th Jan 2015
& there he was a marvellous healthy ball of fluffy blue eyes joy. I have
followed the whole trajectory since his birth on the 17th Nov.and it was a
marvellous journey as Karen is a devoted breeder sending photos and clips of his
developments and I couldn't be more happy to find her facebook timeline with all
events of her passion for Persian cats and for life! Blu was sent to me with all
info possible how to care for my new baby and Karen had even the special
attention of sending toys Blu was familiar to play with when at Catmandu
Cattery. I can't say enough thank you to Karen. It was a wonderful and trustful
experience. Whenever I have some questions 'how to' of raising my beautiful
Skyler Blu Karen is there with answers and support. I am impressed about
Catmandu Cattery standards and care and passionate about all Karen's felines. In
my concept Karen Thomson is The Master Breeder of all Breeders in Australia.

* "Little did we know that we had actually
been waiting for the new owners of the house to show. First came Beau, and
with a regal air about him he surveyed his accommodation, found all was in
order and settled in quickly into his routine, establishing his special
spots to rest his royal butt - his daily grooming often met with a purr of
satisfaction expressing approval that all was good in his domain. But then
came Max and he took little time to decide that every 'spot' that Beau did
previously lay claim to was now his own and if there was a large white cat
there well he would either have to move or be prepared to have his leg
chewed for a while...so Beau would move rather than challenge this annoying
ball of fluff - but not always and if not - well then begun 30 minutes of
'chase around the house'. Our boys are special and we love having them
around, we have willingly changed our house and routine to accommodate
them...thank-you Karen for your dedication, patience and professionalism as
a breeder, it shows when one gets such great animals as these two - who are
of course the best looking cats you have ever breed.

Hi Karen, Biggles is doing fantastic he settled in straightaway, no dramas at
all. The kids just love him so much, he drives my eldest son crazy
sometimes because Biggles likes to walk all over his keyboard while
he is on the computer.He is also fascinated with our big TV and
often sits on the cabinet and waves his paw at the TV hahaha. We
have no Christmas decorations left on the bottom of our tree as
Biggles has taken them off lol. He just loves a cuddle with me at
night when I'm laying on the couch watching TV, and his purring is
so loud hahaha. So yep he is doing great, he is very funny but very
loving as well....im so pleased I got him :)I will keep in touch
I think you sold me the best dam one ! She has settled in like she was meant to
be here. She sleeps on my bed,
she is boss of the big old boy cat, she is purring like crazy and smooching
every one. We all belong to her now. She used her litter and ate plenty the
night she got here. Thankyou so much. She is divine ! More than we hoped
Melinda and Cleo xxxx
is extremely friendly and very professional. My persian is
absolutely beautiful!!! Well worth it.
* Karen is a breeder of high integrity
& quality of Persians. She has beautiful Show cats & kittens
that have outstanding personalities & boning & have done very
well on the Show Bench. I would highly recommend her as a
breeder that is very caring & treats her Cat family as part of
bought 2 beautiful Himalayan Persian Kittens from Karen at
Catmandu Cattery during January 2010. They are little treasures
and are such different personalities that we learn from them
every day. We would be lost without them. We highly recommend
Karen as a breeder because she encourages people to keep in
contact for advice or just to let her know how everything is
going and she is only an email for phone call away. Thank you
for allowing Bella and Max into our lives.
*Thank you so much for all your guidance and support Karen.
Rufus and Alfie are the most gorgeous cats with wonderful
personalities. They have settled in well with my other Persian
and are now a very happy family!! The whole experience was very
smooth and I really appreciated all the information, time and
care you provided. I wish you the best of luck in the future and
will definitely recommend Catmandu to friends!
*To say we are happy with our kitten and dealing with you is a
severe understatement. Oscar is the most loving, playful and
affectionate cat on the planet. He has settled in so well
and loves our other 9 year old Persian. He is so playful and
healthy and Kerry-Ann and I are just rapt. Thank you so
much with your help on hand-over day your experience and
expertise is second to none and if we have any more babies
(Persians) we will only come to you!! I have never found a cat
more loving and affectionate in my life.
Your Persians are beautiful and your guidance, care and
assistance is invaluable.
Karen we are so, so thrilled with Oscar, he is simply the best.

*Thanks so much for allowing us to have one of your precious babies! Alfie is such a special little guy who is sooo sweet, he loves his snuggles and he is always doing things that make us laugh. He has brought alot of joy to our lives and we love him to bits!! And so does Phoenix!!!

* "Our tabby Persian is 4 months old now, and we love her to bits. She is great company, very affectionate, and easy to look after. Karen has been fantastic in getting us ready for our kitten, and following up afterwards. It gives us peace of mind knowing that our kitten has come from an experienced breeder who really does care."
* Thank you for allowing us to share our lives with two of your beautiful kittens. In the short time since we brought them home, Bella and Mischief have become very precious to us and it seems that after having fully evaluated us and scrutinised our daily activities both girls seem to approve of their new home and their new humans.
Both girls get on incredibly well and have lovely natures - we feel very fortunate.
Thank you for being so approachable in the lead up to us bringing our kittens home, and spending time with us to show us how to groom and what to feed etc and thank you for your advise and support since. It helps to know that you are only an email away!

*I cant recommend Catmandu Cattery highly enough! Karen has been fantastic and extremely helpful through the whole process of purchasing my baby girl Mollie! And her cats are absolutely divine! Would recommend to anyone, you won't be disappointed at all!!! :)

*I highly recommend Karen and can't thank her enough for my new little friend, Bella! She was extremely professional and kept me updated throughout the whole process - giving me lots of useful information and lots of photo and video updates of little Bella before she arrived. Bella has settled in fantastically to her new home and I couldn't be happier. Karen's kittens are obviously reared in a loving and healthy environment and I have been really impressed with her after care showing how much Karen Really cares that her kittens go to loving homes. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase her gorgeous cats.
