Our catteryname, how did it came about 

WHO ARE WE, AND WHY DID WE CHOOSE to be come BREEDERS OF THIS WONDERFUL BREED

Lets start from the begining. We are a large family with five beautiful children,  mixed boys and girls. Three of our children are still living at home and two in their own nests with their boyfriends. We are located just north of Uppsala in the countryside., just 45 min from Arlanda Airport. The whole family is involved in the cats and everything that concerns them, which feels very fortunet, and we feel grateful for that. Mum of  the family is a licensed veterinary nurse and works at The University hospital for animal  during the day. It helps a lot  in our breeding with the experience and backgroundknowledge behind it all, especially when it comes to deliverys  but also the importance of hygiene and other crusial things. She also helped her mum  bred hourses  from a young age.  To tell you the truth  it is not completely different from cat breeding except for the fact they are a tad bit smaller  (with that said not easier)
The philosophy  is still the same in any case, to always breed healthy individuals  both physically and also mentally is the  most inportant thing . To allways see to it that healthy stable cats are born into the world. Mum and Dad of the family keep track of the big things  concerning just that, but the  children are true animal friends and  help out with all the other  important thins as cuddle and play and  prepare the little ones for the big world.

Our cattery name Aros Af Ryssgärdet came about, due to the fact  that the place where we live is an old Viking site that was  called Ryssgärdet and Aros springs  from  the way Uppsala formerly was called (Östra) Aros. We try to name our little ones by old Viking  names as you may have noticed. Bjarne, Alve, Brisa, Atle, Blenda & Assar for example . Hope  you found this background history  interessting
