1. What breed are the kittens you have?
They are Chinchilla Persian breed. It is a cat breed with a sweet disposition and friendlier than other feline breeds. They are usually cats that look for contact with their owners and enjoy their company. That is why they are one of the most popular type of breed.
There’s some who describe this type of behaviour specific to this breed with a very peculiar expression “the sofa tiger”. This label gives us some idea of the character of this quiet and sleepy cat.
The Chinchilla Persian is the product of a genetic mutation circa 1800 which gave origin to the male Chinchilla. However, the current Chinchilla is a variety which resulted after many generations of work by different International breeders.
The kittens are born dark and tabby, it Chinchilla fur grows after a few weeks of being born. The turquoise green of their eyes shows up later on, they are usually born with blue eyes and that is where we get our name from Indigo, the colour of the first gaze of the little ones when they are born.
Technically in Indigo we breed the Chinchilla Persian variety (NS12) and the Silver Shaded (NS11).
2. How can I get a Kitten?
The process of acquiring one of our kittens boils down to three very simple steps, which are as follows:
Choose your kitten in our Museum and book it!
Look at all of our pictures of available kittens and book yours. You will find a tab in the kitten’s picture where you’ll have to complete with all the required data in order to make the booking, handover and change of owner’s name which in this case it will be you.
Send a proof of booking and sing the contract with us.
Send a proof of payment of the booking made to our account number
The amount per purchase will be 300€ for kittens in Spain and 600€ for kittens to be sent abroad.
When we receive the booking we will proceed to send you via e-mail the booking and acquisition document of your kitten, the conditions, the certifications and the warrant of the little one.
All of our kittens wish to have a home with a minimum amount of attention covered such as being brushed (at least once a week).
This breed’s tolerance to solitude is worse than that of other cat breeds. Its sweet disposition means that is a type of cat that is affected by long periods of loneliness.
Its beautiful eyes require special attention. It is recommendable to clean them carefully on a daily basis to avoid the accumulation of rheum and possible further infections and eye diseases.
It majestic and soft fur needs to be brushed frequently and they need a nutrition rich in Omega 3 and 6 in order to strengthen hair and skin.
Activity: as it is a particularly quiet cat, it could be exposed to problems related to the lack of activity and overweight and obesity. Especially if it lives in an apartment without access to an exterior space.
Playing with toys or with other cats will avoid this fluffy friend to get “too big”.
We like to know about our little ones and that is why we appreciate a picture of video of them every once in a while to keep us posted.

5. Can I breed with my kitten?
If the animal, owner or breed are going to be at any time in Spain then the answer is NO.
Our breeding line is the product of great genetics and the evolution of these past 10 years and we do not give animals for breed within Spain.
For other countries it has to be consulted due to the fact that we also have a limited amount of cats.
The exclusivity and maximum quality is our best value bet in reference to other breeder.
6. Does the kitten come with its vaccinations and its chip?
Yes, always and in all the cases.
7. What is the use of a pedigree really?
A Pedigree is a document which analyses the genealogic relations of a living creature in context to determine how a feature or phenotype is inherited or manifests. The study of the pedigree is a concept used since ancient times as a selection method and guarantee of the purity of the breed in the breeding of certain domestic breeds. However, since the beginning of the XX century the term is also applied to any organism whose genealogy can be studied.
Therefore, a pedigree has not much use if what we want is just a life partner or a family member for our kitten.
Nonetheless, when breeding it is completely necessary and a pedigree starts to have value when you have the data of at least 4 previous generations which are well placed and analysed, certified by an organism Internationally renowned if possible and you fit within a good genealogic tree.
8. How can I differentiate the Chinchilla?
Chinchilla and Silver Shaded are sometimes confused due to the fact that they’re practically the same in all regards except one: the dark hair in their paws will tell us whether they belong to one breed or the other. The hair on their paws has to be black or blue. The hair on the paw not on the pillows of the paws.
