Welcome to Voijer Birmans breeders and kittens page.
These are the cats we are currently breeding. In the kitten section we try to show a selection of colors and ages. These kittens are from past litters.
Are you interested in an adult, retired show cat or a kitten?
Please e-mail us to see if we have kittens or adults available for placement.
When Birman kittens are born, they are all white. Sometimes at two days old a little color can be seen on their ears; these are usually seal point or seal lynx point kittens. Sometimes it takes several weeks before we can tell what color they're going to be.
Because the kittens are white as little ones. I mark each cat (blue you see in picture #1) in a different spot so that I can identify individual kittens. I do this in order to record weights and other information about them. Once their points darken I can tell who is who from their markings.
We enjoy raising and loving the kittens as they grow. They stay with us until they are 16 weeks old. This gives the kittens time to be well socialized, develop strong immune systems and to be immunized.

Birman Breeders in the U.S. name their kittens by letters of the alphabet. We got our first Birman in 1995 and began showing in CFA. Our first litter was born March 1, 1997, the "V" year. The year 2013 was a "K" year. 2015 will be an "M" year. Bleustone’s Urth Angel of Voijer and Celtic’s Tahoe of Voijer were the start of our cattery and over the years, gave us beautiful, healthy kittens. Raising healthy, friendly babies has been a large part of our journey.
One of the most important parts of breeding is that we bring in kittens who are not related closely to our cats. Since I joined FaceBook, I was able to see many Birman kittens and cats from all over the world. I particularly liked the look of Ivana Roznerova's kittens and cats (Laty Mery is her cattery name) and wrote to her to see if she had a kitten who was available that I would like and want to become part of our breeding program.
She sent me pictures she had of one of her last litters of the year, 2014. I liked one of the boys and Ivana felt he was show/breeder quality and I decided this kitten was meant to come to live with us:) This kitten's name was (and is) Farmuthi.
Ivana is a member of FIFE in Europe and they name each litter starting with a different letter; Farmuthi's litter all began with the letter "F". Ivana lives in the Czech Republic and for us this means that Farmuthi is not related to any of the cats we have in our breeding program. It's a very long plane ride to get to the east coast of the United States but Farmuthi came to us and, when we picked him up and started talking to him, he began yelling to get out of his carrier! He had to wait until we got home and then he waltzed into our house, his room and our hearts! Whenever I bring in a new kitten, that kitten is kept in a room by himself (with lots of attention from us) for about a week and he's taken to our vet to be thoroughly checked out. Once that was done and all was fine, Farmuthi was (and is) allowed to have time in the house to run and play with our other cats.
He is a very out-going, confident kitten who has never growled or hissed at any of the cats in our home. My husband and I are members of the Cat Fanciers' Association, Inc and have been for many years. We show our cats in a number of shows each year. Farmuthi is being shown as a kitten now and, when he becomes 8 months old, he'll be shown in Championship.
Eventually, he'll become part of our breeding program.
This picture was taken within the first 2 days of Farmuthi’s arrival. I think this shows how confident he was and still is!
Farmuthi had been in our home for 2 - 3 weeks when this picture was taken.
I took Farmuthi and Lady Luck to VT with me for a lovely weekend of shows. Farmuthi was honored with a number of finals during that weekend! Here are Farmuthi and Lady Luck in the hotel in VT.
Farmuthi is a blue tabby (lynx) and Lady Luck is a chocolate tabby.

Here is Farmuthi at his first show weekend. He enjoyed being in the hotel and adapted to being shown easily. He even made a final in Judge Russell Webb’s AB Kitten Final!

Here are two kittens that I am showing this season (2016): Voijer's Night Angel, called Angel. She is a lilac lynx/tabby kitten born May 29, 2016. BirKist's Native Dancer of Voijer is a blue lynx/tabby kitten born March 23, 2016. They are fun to show! When they grow up and I stop showing them, they will become part of our breeding program.
