My name is Catarina Börkén
Öhman, called Cattis. I am running Silverklippan's Chinchilla.
with my husband and five children in central Norrköping .
I have always taken a keen interest in animals
horse - girl
" and competed
in showjumping .
Dogs have nearly always been in the family and
several gerbils , hamsters , rabbits , stick insects , fish , lizards
and snakes .
Then I bought my first pair of chinchillas , and
I became obsessed...
The goal of
chinchilla breeding is to breed nice, cute and healthy
animals with good temperament and attractive exterior. Desirable
bodies with broad, high necks, round sweet heads.
should fit well as a pet, so as to further breeding and exhibition.
The breeding animals are
carefully selected to complement each other in all
to breed with pure standard in my mutation breeding.
The breeding focuses primarily in Beige, White, Pink White all in combination with Velvet, and also pure Grey. I also breed the new mutations Goldbar and Black Pearl.
Our chinchillas are living in big
and bright cages with solid bottom. All cages are decorated
with many shelves and a hammock or a hangingtunnel.
have a sand bath with them at all time, except for females that have recently given birth.
They have free access
water, pellets, minerals and
branches to chew on.
The animals live in our
apartment and are accustomed to sound and motion.
I handle all the animals often, kits daily so they are
accustomed to human contact and most appreciate the time in my lap and a scratch behind the ear.
check all animals health and weigh all of them at
least once a week.
