Breeder of amazing Ocicats and Abyssinians
with an emphasis on health and being family friendly

Natalie Sandbrook 

I have always had a passion for animals which led me to study and graduate with a Diploma in Veterinary Nursing from Massey University.  I travelled overseas to work in Australian vet clinics which was the best nursing experience I've ever had.

I returned to New Zealand in 2003 and worked in the area of livestock breeding which I thoroughly enjoyed. As well as my passion for animals, I also love speech & drama. I took a break from my animal career and started my private speech and drama studio, Creative Drama and Speech. 

I moved to Hawkes Bay in 2009 with my husband and five children, where I lectured Vet Nursing at the local polytechnic for a few years. I have since continued to teach speech and drama privately. 

I came across Ocicats and Abyssinians through Jody Robinson-Wildey from Abyrose Abyssinians and immediately fell in love with both of these breeds.  A big thank you to my mentor Jody from Abyrose Abyssinians for her patience, expertise knowledge, and kindness.

I feel honoured to be able to breed these beautiful cats in my family home and share my passion with others.  

Our First Stud Zeppelin

Our first stud arrived early 2017. He is a beautiful young man named Zeppelin. He is a tawny ocicat and we can't wait to see what beautiful litters he produces. 

Our First Queen

Our first queen arrived in March 2017. She is an elegant young girl named Cleopatra. She is a cinnamon ocicat and we can't wait to see what beautiful litters she produces with Zeppelin. Thank you Kelly Payne for our beautiful girl.  What a huge personality!!

Our First Litter

Cleo and Zepp have been enjoying each others company. Our first litter is expected 18th December.  We can't wait for the arrival of our first litter!!
