I find it challenging seeing myself as a breeder, after all I am just a simple cat lover - first, foremost, and forever.

Tove is my name and I live outside Oslo (at Slemmestad) in Norway. I have had cats all my life - domestic and pedigree cats. My cats are literally my babies (since I have none on two legs) and they do of course move freely around in my flat and summer house. 

I got my first oriental in February 2009. (N)X-Cat's Espresso Love was bought as a pet and the connection was instant! This was the breed I had longed for. Since then I have never looked back and cannot imagine a life without these amazing creatures.

I enjoy the cat scene and going to shows as well as having kittens jumping around and "messing up" my life. My primary goal for any future litters will be to breed healthy, well socialiazed kittens of a good type.

Zamaradi means the emerald in Swahili, which I believe represents the perspective I will always have on my cats. Others may collect earthly goods. I prefer a cat to a diamond any day. Besides, my cats glitter in different colours just like the world of emeralds.

NO*Zamaradi is affiliated to NRR and FiFE through my membership of Grenlandspusen. I am a certified breeder by NRR and have finalized G1 and G2 levels at the PawAcademy.

I hope you will enjoy my cattery web-pages. 

Warm regards,
