Happy Healthy Pets

At Gil-V Tales, we believe that happy, healthy animals produce the best pets. That’s why all of our breeding animals are also our beloved pets, living in our home and receiving the best care possible.

All of our currently breeding cats meet the approved standards for TICA and CFA. They have been evaluated and approved in the show rings. They have been DNA tested using Optimal selection’s wisdom profile and have been found to be free from genetic disorders. To learn more about our queens and toms, please visit those pages.
