The Miradoll Cat ​

The Miradoll Cat is one of the most lovable companion cats you will find. They are quite a sensation, attracting much attention in NZ and further afield.  We are heading into our eighth year of working with these amazing cats.  Each breeding season we produce the most beautiful kittens in both looks and smooch factor and we constantly strive to improve and perfect our beautiful breed.  

What is a Miradoll?

A gorgeous, massive breed with large, expressive eyes, the Miradoll is sweet and loving, often described as being like a teddy bear. This feline thrives on attention and is a wonderful family pet that gets along well with other cats and dogs, thriving in multi-pet households. The Miradoll has an easygoing, calm temperament and can be trained to walk on a leash and play fetch. This healthy breed reaches adulthood at 4 years old.
