Hello there, and welcome to our website.
Our names are Alison & Eddie Murray and we are located in central Scotland. Our main hobby for many years was breeding beautiful Somali cats for type and temperament.
We have however recently put this on hold to concentrate on our more recent venture, the creation of unique solid wood cat furniture. More about that below after some information about us and our cat family.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US.......
It was only when my family grew up that I found I had some time available ( ...and some money...) to set off on my new adventure of showing and breeding semi long haired cats. It was an expensive hobby and quite am emotional roller coaster with the joy of kittens but then having to let them go to their new homes. However, very rewarding in many other ways for a cat lover like myself to be surrounded by so many beautiful cats and kittens! I soon became known to friends, neighbours and work colleagues as the 'mad cat lady'! The one question everyone seemed to like to ask me was, 'so Alison, how many cats do you have now?'
Then in 2011, I met Eddie.......
Since meeting Alison I am now a cat lover and we have travelled to many cat shows around the country together. At first it was simply to show our cats and meet friends. Then one day, initially for our own cat's use, I decided to use my artistic skills and love of making things to start creating cat furniture suitable for the house and our outside cat runs as our cats kept wrecking the usual MDF and cardboard versions we all purchase in shops. Then our cat friends saw these solid wood trees and wanted one, then they persuaded us to take our creations to cat shows setting up a trade stall. It started off slow but has since turned into an enjoyable small business for us, a little niche in the market.
When we saw each other across the dance floor it was one of those 'sliding doors' moments and could so easily not have happened, as neither of us has planned to be there that night. But it was love at first sight....awww... and we are so glad we were each reluctantly dragged along by our friends/family to that party.
In June 2012 we decided to elope to Gretna Green and get married :)
About Our Cat Family
We are devoted human slaves to our cat family which is a mix of Birman, Somali & Coonali cats. While we find that 1 or 2 cats is just not enough, we try to keep our numbers in single figures and amazingly we are currently succeeding with that goal Out cat gang are all neutered and have the run of our house plus back garden, which is fully enclosed and cat proofed with fencing all round and pigeon netting across the top of the garden to keep them safe. We have added a cat gym to our kitchen and plenty of tunnels, cat trees and places to climb and hide in our garden. Our last litters of Somali kittens moved to their new forever homes in the summer of 2015
All our adult cats have now been neutered and these days we are enjoying the pleasure of our 14 cats running happily together instead of being kept in separate accommodation. For our ex stud boys and ex breeding queens, its pretty much a case of all living in harmony apart from the odd growl at meals time when we serve up their favourite freshly cooked chicken. Its just so much easier compared to when they were all entire, although we will miss the delights of kittens.
The transformation is particularly amazing for our 2 ex stud boys Taggert and Storm who used to want to kill each other! OMG, what a difference now that they are neutered, they love being able to be in the house... and even snuggle up side by side!
