Testimonials

exotic kittens“We adopted Oakleigh from Stellarosa Exotics and she has been such a wonderful addition to our family. She is a beautiful kitten and has the sweetest, most laid back personality I have ever seen in a cat. This is our first cat with a flat face and Kathi was incredibly helpful, answering all of my questions as well as providing tips and resources for us to ensure we could give her the best care possible. She provided us with weekly videos and/or pictures and she was very responsive to all of my inquiries. Kathi also does an amazing job of caring for the kittens. Oakleigh is the picture of health and we can tell that she was socialized with other cats and people. We have an 18 year old male cat and Oakleigh has been amazing with him. She is so gentle, sweet and beautiful and we feel incredibly fortunate to have her as part of our family. It was such a pleasure working with Kathi during the adoption process, she is so helpful and she raises healthy, gorgeous kitties with wonderful temperaments! If/when we decide to add another feline to our family, Kathi will be the first person I contact!”

exotic shorthair kitten with kids“We had such an amazing experience with Stellarosa Exotics! A little over three years ago, I contacted Kathi through her website inquiring about kittens for my two daughters…she contacted me quickly with very exciting news about upcoming litters. Once we found out we were receiving 2 kittens the communication with Kathi about our boys was so great!! She emailed videos and pictures of the kittens each week! My girls were so excited to hear about the kittens and loved being involved in the process. Pick up was a smooth & easy process and Oh, so exciting!! We couldn’t be happier with our two exotic shorthairs!! They are beautiful, healthy, sweet-tempered boys. Would definitely recommend adopting your fur babies from Stellarosa!”

exotic shorthair kittens“Having purchased two kittens from Stellarosa Exotics and observing the cattery first hand over a fairly long period of time I can easily attest to the high standard of quality of the end product and the compassionate care that is so important in any breeding operation and so woefully absent in many. Kathi’s kittens are just what anyone would want in a companion animal – wonderful temperament, excellent health, and adherence to
the breed standard. As a life-long owner of silver Persian cats I became accustomed to the grooming issues and health concerns inherent in silvers but the exotic is a very different story. The exotic short plushy coat does not mat, and their good bone and substance is a big plus in the health department. If you are interested in an exotic you cannot go wrong with Stellarosa. Kathi’s attention to the very important details of raising kittens in a healthful, immaculate and loving environment is second to none.”

exotic shorthair kitten “My experience with Stellarosa Exotics has been far beyond 5 star. I would give Kathi a million stars if that were possible but I guess I’ll go with 5 =). I could tell from the start, with her knowledge and patience with questions, that Kathi truly cared about her kittens. This seemed to me as though it was her life and that is exactly what I was looking for from a breeder. I wanted them to be doing something they put their whole heart into and it was very clear to me that this was the case and apparently I have good instincts because I was definitely right. The process was very easy. I gave an upfront deposit, received some papers to sign and instructions I needed and then arranged for pickup. She drove to the airport to meet me with my new kitten, Gabriella and we sat and talked about everything and I then I jumped on a flight back home. Gabriella has been a dream. She is basically my daughter now and I had made it very clear I wanted a very loving kitten with a certain type of temperament and Kathi did not disappoint. You can easily tell how well trained she was from the start. The adjustment period was astonishingly low and there have been little to no issues whatsoever which is just amazing in itself. I send Kathi updated pictures and videos, probably too often but I want her to be able to see Gabriella grow up and to see how much of a positive impact she has on our family. Anytime I am stressed or down, she is always there to get me laughing or smiling. She is a dream and it is very much thanks to Kathi at Stellarosa!”

exotic shorthair“Stellarosa Exotics is the best cattery, I am a repeat customer so you know I am very satisfied. Originally I had two kittens from them and I am so pleased with how they’ve grown that I recently came back for another one. Kathi raises beautiful, healthy kittens that have good temperaments and sweet dispositions. In fact, my veterinarian

Stellarosa kittens are fluffy bundles of joy and have brought so much love into our family. I only have the highest praise for Kathi and her kittens. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.”

exotic shorthair kittens“Kathi is a trustworthy and reputable breeder. We got two kittens from Kathi, and they are happy, healthy, and fun! They are now 1.5 years old and are still as sweet as when we first got them. They have great personalities – affectionate, funny, and gentle. We just love them so much! When we first got them, Kathi informed us of a minor health issue (loose stool) the kittens had. She provided us with their medical records and medication, and continually worked with us until their health issue was resolved. She is very responsive and truly cares about her cats. Kathi even offered to take back a kitten for a full refund. We decided to keep the kitten, and she offered a partial discount. If I were looking to get another exotic shorthair, I would definitely go to Stellarosa Exotics again. The cats brighten our lives every day, and we are so thankful for them!”

exotic shorthair kittens“I purchased our kitty, Joy, from Stellarosa Exotics in January of 2020. Joy was raised to the age of approximately three months by Kathi, the owner of Stellarosa. She was obviously held frequently from birth to my ownership. Although I have had several cats in the past, none have met Joy’s standard of sociability, health and calmness. Joy’s character and loving disposition are clearly attributable to Stellarosa’s owner and very quality breeder, Kathi! I highly recommend Stellarosa Exotics!!”
