elcome to the Web site of Desertstar Somalis! We are UK breeders of Somali cats and live in the Cheshire countryside. We raise our cats in a loving and protective atmosphere, and they all live indoors with us. Kittens are sometimes available to loving homes after the age of 13 weeks.

Somalis are moderate-sized cats with a semi-longhair coat and bushy tail. The fur is incredibly soft and each hair has bands of darker colours, called "ticking", which gives the coat the impression of having a shimmer. This ticking usually also results in a darker band of colour along the cat's back and down through its tail to the very tip, which makes Somalis look quite exotic. Due to their fox-like tails they have been given the nickname of "fox-cat". To learn more about Somalis, please visit our Breed History and Breed Standards pages, or why not get acquainted with our cats?
