About  Us

We breed and raise Gun Dogs and the elegant Russian Blue Cat. Located in Swansea, Wales, UK. I have the prefix of ‘Cwmdarran’ registered with the GCCF and TICA and TYCWMDARRAN registered with the UK Kennel Club which means Darran Valley, which is where we lived before moving here about 10 years ago. Our kittens are all raised in our home as part of our family, with our children and our dogs. We are conveniently located only 5 minutes from J46 of the M4.

I have always had animals of one type or another including Meerkats, Yellow Mongoose, Banded Mongoose, Dwarf Mongoose, Agoutis, Mara, Woodchucks etc, I also worked at Pensycynor Wildlife Park in Neath before it closed in 1998 where I gained my City and Guilds Certificate in Zoo Animal Management.

Reserving & Appointments


Kittens/Puppies will have been wormed, flea treated and litter trained (Kittens) they will be registered with the appropriate Governing Body, they leave with 4 weeks free insurance which you should consider continuing, for at least the first year as kittens/puppies are like little monkeys and climb and run everywhere and get into all sorts of mischief.

Kittens/Puppies are on the non-active register, (not for breeding purposes) and sold to loving pet homes only. Only the breeder can change this registration to active from non-active, kittens/puppies for show/breeding are available from time to time. Please ask if this is what you are looking for.

Its is recommended to have your kitten neutered by the time they are 7-8 months old, this prevents the male and female from spraying and both from calling.  A copy of our kittens/puppies sale agreement is below at the bottom of this page.

If you are looking for that little bundle of fur then please tell us about yourself, our aim is to match the right kitten/puppy with the right family.

We are happy to take a non refundable deposit prior to seeing the kitten or puppy, but we do ask you to collect in person.

Payment on collection can be in cash or bank transfer.

Our kittens/puppies are available for viewing from 4 weeks of age. This will be in a basket however no handling will be allowed at this stage. We have had some ‘so called buyers’ who are just simply out on a cheap day trip with the children going from breeder to breeder. This is highly dangerous to young kittens/puppies due to various infections and diseases that can get passed from breeder to breeder and can wipe out entire litters. When enquiring about a kitten/puppy please tell us a little about yourself, work, pets etc as we like to know where our kittens/puppies go and what type of future life they will have. Updates and photographs are sent via email once a deposit is received.

Please do not visit other breeders on the same day, allow 48hrs. This reduces the chances of cross infection should there be any.

A kitten/puppy is not reserved without a deposit, deposits are taken in good faith and are non-refundable, ‘unless we are unable to supply the kitten/puppy’,  we also reserve the right to refuse a sale at anytime and refund the deposit in full.

We offer a lifetime support for our puppies and kittens and we are only a phone call away.

Compulsory Microchipping of Dogs


Your kitten or puppy will be microchipped before leaving here as I am also a ‘fully registered’ Microchip Implanter.

It is now mandatory throughout the UK that all dog owners must have their dogs microchipped and recorded with a government compliant microchip database such as Petlog.

Dog breeders, meanwhile, must ensure that puppies are microchipped and recorded by the time they are eight weeks old and before they are sold. Some breeders are still not doing this and recording the buyer as the first owner. You can only wonder why and what they are trying to avoid? Most likely HMRC.

When a dog is transferred, the new owner’s (keeper’s) details must be added to the database. Further, if an owner moves home or changes telephone number, these details should always be updated.

Failure to keep these details updated means that under the eyes of the law, the dog is no longer considered microchipped and a fine can apply of up to £500.

If your kitten/puppy becomes lost or stolen you will be contacted as soon as your pet is found. Every single day unidentified pets are sent to shelters throughout the country and a large number of these are eventually killed, many could have been reunited with their owners if identification had been possible.

ALSO NOTE!


There is a scam where the kittens/pups pedigree is not available when you collect, this can be done on-line and takes less than half an hour and an email to confirm registration is sent. The documents are then sent to the breeder who will forward them on to the buyer. If you see no confirmation of this or the pets GCCF or KENNEL CLUB certificate when buying the kitten/puppy then you will most likely never ever receive it.

A lot of kittens and puppies are currently being imported from Poland on ‘yellow’ SWKIPR certificates, these are useless and do not certify anything and are not recognised within the UK.
