I have been breeding and showing Somalis for more than 18 years.

My cats are from World Champion and Grand Europian Champion lines.
I fell in love with Somalis, when I adopted my first ruddy Somali in 2001. With Som'sis Ciara from Germany- my dream in blue - I had five beautiful kittens (C-litter), of which I kept the promising sorrel colored Cleopatra vom Zankelstein. From Cleopatra`s G-litter the fawn colored Gina vom Zankelstein has remained and from my H-litter I kept the blue Hypnos from Zankelstein.

For the next years I adoptet two nice ruddy boys in cooperation with other breeders from Iceland and Swizerland. After neutering my stud Hypnos, I kept from Taifun vom Zankelstein, a nice ruddy boy with new lines from Swizerland and Sweden, his lovely blue daughter Xenia vom Zankelstein.

In 2017 I imported a wonderful ruddy stud from Brasilia with exclusive cats from USA from Mary Franz, cattery Tajhara.
Parents are Tajhara Straight Into The Sunrise & Tajhara Brazilian Ruby. This pedigree is unique in Germany.
From this line in combination with my ruddy Fridolin vom Zankelstein the sorrel Somali girl Zankelsteins Elsa von der Stoffelburg will increase my breeding program with nice lines from Russia and Sweden in the background too. She also continues the rare pedigree of Godheima`s Pan, my stud from Iceland

My Somalis have found homes not only in Germany, but also Sweden, Latvia, Austria, Switzerland, Belarus, Norway and the Ukraine.

My cats are examined by genetic testing for PRA and PK and the blood groups were determined to prevent blood group incompatibility! They were also tested for PL. Periodically, I also investigate on Giardia, Clostridium, Trichonomaden, Chlamydia and Herpes Virus. My kittens are born and raised in our home and introduced to the rest of our cat family.
We are a small in-home cattery located in Kainsbach, Bayern, Germany.
I strive to raise healthy, friendly and very sociable cats. I tell people that ask about the personality of the cats, that they are very smart, active, curious and love to be around people. If you are interested in a kitten, want to be placed on our waiting list or would like more information, you can contact us.
