We are a small in-home cattery in northern California that raises our kittens underfoot. We guarantee the health of our kittens and cats in a written contract. We strive for excellence in the European Burmese breed, and you are more than welcome to make a visit by appointment. We are also happy to provide references upon request.  

This many people have visited our website:
"Pura Vida" is a common expression used in Costa Rica - our favorite vacation destination.  It means "Pure Life." 

Our goal is to produce friendly, healthy kittens using top-winning lines of European Burmese.  Our cats are genetically tested not only for color alleles, but also GM2 Gangliosidosis, craniofacial defect gene, and hypokalemia, so we can ensure that you have your new family member for a long time.
PuraVida is owned by Jeff and Heather Roberts in northern California.  Jeff is a manager for a national food company and Heather is an educational administrator at a local college.  We both have our PhDs in Biological Sciences from Texas Tech University.  We are also both TICA Allbreed cat show judges, love birding, and enjoy traveling together.
