Nassau, Bahamas

My husband and I just received our kitten from Milla’s Kats, and we are already in love. David and Milla made the process so easy, and they are so knowledgeable, we do not have the words to express how much we would recommend getting a kitten through them. It is extremely clear that David and Milla truly care about their fur babies, and put so much love, time and attention into each and every one. They personally match kittens to their owners, and what a phenomenal job they do - it is a such a unique service, for such unique and majestic cats.

Our kitten is so loving and well behaved, he is an absolute dream. We are beyond grateful for our little boy, and for becoming a part of the Milla’s Kats family - we absolutely plan to get another kitten in the future, and would only get one through Milla’s Kats.

Carolyn and Pru Ekaterina

Encinitas, CA

I acquired my American Short Hair kitten through Milla’s Kats. I knew I wanted an American Short Hair because I had one before and I fell in love with the breed.

I strapped my little kitten in the car for our ride home. I could see her in my rear-view mirror. I prepared myself for the hour-and-a-half return trip, knowing that she’d probably cry the whole way. Cats usually do not like car rides. Pru settled in without a peep. Nestled in her soft baby blankets inside her carrier she drifted off to sleep. The ride home was silent as she slept peacefully the whole time.

From the moment I got her home, introduced her to her litter box, and let her slowly explore her new surroundings she has never had a single accident. I’ve had her for over a month.

Pru is confident, bright, interactive, playful, sweet-natured, and the absolute best kitten I’ve ever owned. She has her routines, which include mewing at me in the kitchen while I’m preparing her food; she prances alongside me, wagging her tail, and continues “talking” to me as I walk her food bowl to her eating area. David told me that in the beginning Pru would likely consume her food very fast because she was used to the competition of her litter-mates at feeding time. She has a lusty appetite, and enjoys her meals with gusto! Her purring is the sweetest sound. She ceremoniously bathes herself throughout the day. Pru loves to perch herself at various windows and observe the hummingbirds and butterflies. She loves to be pet, combed, and played with, and will play independently too. She is agile and strong, constantly discovering new surfaces to conquer.

Although there are those who are critical of getting a pet from a breeder, there are very good reasons to consider. Milla’s Kats cattery is completely dedicated to the holistic well-being of their cats and kittens. There is an application process which allows the owners to vet potential clients. They consider your lifestyle, the other occupants in the home, and after doing this for so long I imagine that there’s an intuition which guides their choices for who qualifies. Ownership of a Milla’s Kats kitten is a privilege, not a right. They take immaculate care of the cats they select for breeding, the environment they’re raised in, their nutrition and their “socialization”. This level of care is apparent in the disposition, robust health, confidence and playfulness of their babies. A new kitten is released at 16 weeks of life. In that time the kitten is learning toileting, self-grooming, and becoming social, confident and inquisitive; all direct effects of being in a completely nurturing environment in the presence of the mama cat and the littermates. This “learning” is vital to any kitten’s successful transition to a new home. When you consider that a healthy kitten, who continues to be similarly nurtured and protected in a safe and loving home, has the potential to live for perhaps another twenty years, well that’s a long relationship, and I feel that this level of quality is worth paying for. Milla’s Kats has new and repeat customers all across the United States. That’s impressive.

My family and friends are astounded by Pru’s “personality” and her markings. I am astounded at my good fortune to have found Milla’s Kats, and to have received the blessing of having this very special kitten join our family.

My deep thanks goes to David and Ludmilla Macias for falling in love with this breed long ago, and for dedicating their lives to producing exquisite American Short Hair kittens. I’m forever grateful.

Good morning, David! I just wanted to say hello and tell you how much joy our Chloe has brought to our family. She is the sweetest, smartest, most loving little thing. Every single day we find something new about her personality. We just couldn’t love her any more. We are so appreciative of you and the care you put into those sweet cats. She makes every day fun and an adventure. Thank you ❤️

Virginia B., M.D. with Carlo & Edoardo

Evanston, Illinois

To David and Milla – Thank you. You sent me two brothers from your cattery in California, and they have made my life complete. Carlo and Edoardo (sons of Sophia Loren) are the most affectionate, playful, and beautiful kittens. The experience of adopting from Milla’s Kats has been exceptional, from the first view of the website (and first glimpse of the elegant photography of David Macias) to actual contact with David and his extraordinarily breadth of knowledge about all cats,  particularly American Shorthairs, to being supported while waiting for the kittens to be born, to knowing that kittens had been selected for me, to preparing by reading all David’s recommendations and suggestions,  to meeting David at the airport as he transported the kittens to Chicago,  to taking them home. I worried about how to introduce my two boys to their new home; should I restrict them to one room of the house as they got used to me? David said: “You can. But also know that they will have emotional support from each other.” And he was so right! These kitties are bold adventurers. Reasonably cautious, they ventured into the house and almost immediately they were at home. Carlo is a “fetcher”: and every morning and evening he brings his toy mouse and drops it requesting to play. Edoardo joins in, and then the two of them go thundering through the house, nose to tail until they fall into wrestling each other.  They also join me in my workouts liking to sit on my stomach while I do abdominal crunches. But what is particularly exceptional, and I believe related to the loving socialization they receive from Milla, is how affectionate and people oriented they are. They prefer to be in the same room as I am, even if it is during their midmorning siesta. They definitely prefer to share my meals with me (although David has cautioned me about what people foods are hazards for kittens.)  These cats are also hunters. . . At this point they are still honing their hunting chops on spiders and flies, but mice beware! ` And they join me in whatever work or project I happen to be engaged with. They are the most wonderful kittens and I highly recommend Milla’s Kats as a cattery with a conscience. They are the best.

Matt, Alisha, Daughters with Cosimo & Bianca

Billings, MT

About a year and a half ago our 12-year-old decided that she needed to convince mom and dad that it was time to get some cats.  She spent hours and hours researching different breeds of cats and learned all about their histories, personalities, which ones were best with kids, etc.  She decided that American Shorthairs would be the best fit for us and began researching breeders.  We found Milla's Kats and decided that was our top choice.  So, both our girls decided that they were willing to work hard and help save money so they could each buy a kitten of their own.  For almost a full year both of our girls did everything they could to save their money and find ways to earn more.  Our (now) 13-year-old daughter did babysitting, made homemade loaves of bread, and sold it to neighbors, and did extra chores at home.  Our 9-year-old daughter did lots of chores, gave mom and dad extra back massages for money, and raked leaves for people.  Both girls held a garage sale together.  They cleaned out everything mom would let them and ran the garage sale and put the profits all towards the cat fund.  They both earned some extra money getting A's on their report cards and saved that for their kitties as well.  They even decided not to spend their birthday money from their Grandparents and saved it for their cats.  At the end of the year, they both happily handed over all their hard-earned money and helped contribute to purchasing 2 American Shorthair kittens.  We love our kitties so much.  And we are so proud of our girls staying focused on a goal and following through with it.

Erika C., DVM & Linus

Fort Mohave, AZ

I own a veterinary hospital in Arizona. We have always had a clinic cat here to love on between seeing patients and to help keep staff morale high. Our last clinic cat passed away in 2020 and it was very hard on all of us without him. We needed a very special cat not only to help fill the hole in our hearts, but one that would do well in an animal hospital setting. I have always wanted an American Shorthair and after much searching I decided to contact Milla's Kats. From the first interaction with David I knew this was the right cattery. He holds a very high standard for the care provided to his cats and you can tell how much they are all loved. David made sure to pick a cat with just the right personality for us. Our staff instantly fell in love with Linus! He's got the perfect personality for our hospital - playful, sweet, and enjoys just hanging out with the staff. We love him so much we decided to add another of Milla's Kat's to the hospital and are anxiously awaiting her arrival.

Nicole, Dart & Family

North Pole, Alaska

We live in Alaska, and getting a kitten delivered to Alaska, in the winter, during a pandemic turned out to be a very challenging thing to do. Every time we ran into a snag David did his very best to take care of it or correct it as soon as he could to get our kitten to us. He kept me well informed of the process and kept me updated constantly. There was great communication the entire time, and it showed he cares for his kittens and the families they go to. He traveled on Thanksgiving to get us our kitten, and had to catch a return flight right away. Even though he did not get to spend as much time as he said he normally does with the families, he was kind and very informative. Since then our kitten has been introduced to our family of 6 with 5 kids ranging in ages from 5-14. The kids love him and he is such a sweet and playful kitten!

Hello all! If you are thinking about adding a fur baby to your family, I highly recommend an American Shorthair Tabby. My husband and I just took delivery of a little silver tabby girl from Milla’s Kats in So Cal. David picked the perfect kitty girl based on our bio, he was right on the money! This breed is so sweet and mellow besides being some of the most beautiful felines on earth. David cares about all his kittens and will work with you on every aspect of your experience.

We just bought our second Silver Tabby from Milla's Kats. The first is now 1 year old. The new one is 4 months old. We adore them. They have two completely different personalities, but both are stunningly beautiful, vigorously healthy and extremely sweet. They each reflect the loving care with which they were raised. I grew up around animals. My parents had a kennel and bred dogs. I know how much work and care are involved in running an operation like that. When I first went to Milla's Cattery, what jumped out at me what how spotless it is. It's clear that Mila and David are meticulous in maintaining the quality and health of their cats, raising them with a raw meat diet, and taking care to socialize them to be playful and sweet. If you are looking for a Silver Tabby, I couldn't recommend their cattery more highly.

From the first time we spoke to David, we knew Milla's Kats was the right fit for our family. The level of care, patience, knowledge and attentiveness David demonstrated and continues to have with our family is unprecedented. David took the time to understand our family to ensure he identified the right fit between our kitten and family. Alta could not be more perfect! She is the most affectionate, sweet and beautiful kitten than we could ever have imagined. From the moment we met her she was purring and nuzzling up with us. The boys absolutely adore her and enjoy snuggling and playing with her. We are so grateful to have found David and Milla and truly do feel we have become part of the Milla's Kats family!

We've had our kitten, Theo, with us for just over three weeks, but we already can't remember a time without him. We are absolutely in love. Thank you Milla and David for doing such a wonderful job caring for him. It shows in how comfortable he is with us and others, how friendly and playful he is (seriously, all the entertainment we need), and how sweet and affectionate and trusting. He always plays gently, even when he gets really wound up chasing a plush mouse, and he is obsessed with socks and anything paper—such a personality. He's a ball of energy but will gladly curl up against my side while I'm reading on the couch or taking a nap. He instantly became such an important member of our family--thank you David and Milla for raising such loving and happy kittens!

I could not have asked for a more perfect cat. He is an absolute joy. You guys have done such an amazing job. He is the sweetest. We are all over the moon with him. His personality is identical to Willow’s. They play perfectly together. He has brought so much happiness to her and calms her. Which is a big deal due to her autism spectrum disorder. So thank you for bringing him into our life. He sleeps with Trey and I every night right now while the cats are separated and the girls are very jealous.

After going through the heartbreak of losing our precious kitty, I began to see a ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ when I found Milla’s Kats website. Unlike other websites, they offer lots of helpful information on the breed, care & health, nutrition and, most of all, lots of real life photos & videos of their very own cats and baby kittens. Their website is updated regularly and so much fun to see and watch.After my initial phone call with David, any doubts I may have had disappeared and we decided to get our kitten from them without hesitation. David is so good at answering all our questions and concerns through every phase of the process – even after we brought our kitten home.Although David can deliver your kitten to you, we decided to visit Milla’s Kats and pick-up our ‘baby’ in person. It was a joy to see just how meticulously clean the cattery was and how beautiful and well-loved their cats are.We fell in love with our “Louie” at first sight. He has been a total joy since bringing him home – fully potty trained, great appetite, strong & healthy, full of playfulness and mischief. Boy do we enjoy his cuddles – especially in the evening when we are relaxing watching tv. He’ll climb up our chests and give kisses & rubs under our chins before he settles down on our chest or lap. Love him like crazy. Such a sweet baby boy.We are finally a complete ‘precious kitty’ family again – thanks to Milla’s Kats and David!

Our little guy is purrfect...happy, playful, charming, intelligent, a true companion. Bacio is gorgeous. You will get the best kitten from this cattery. Thank you David and Milla for all you do!

I came across Milla’s Kats when researching the American Shorthair breed. I was mourning the loss of our family cat and wanted to adopt a kitten of a breed that is perfect for a family like mine. I quickly learned there are not many American Shorthair breeders. When I called Milla’s Kats, Dave answered immediately. I was new to pedigree adoption and didn’t know where to start. I had a lot of questions and Dave was very informative, transparent and generous with his time. He also asked as many questions of me about my family and what we were looking for in our next kitten. Fast forward to now, two months post adoption. We have the most beautiful brown tabby kitten named Maggie. Her personality is the perfect match for our family and we love her to pieces. Dave continues to check in and give advice when needed, and Milla and I keep in touch on Instagram and Facebook with photos of our beloved cats.

Having already owned an American Shorthair and needing a companion for my dog, I borrowed my Granddaughter to help me check out " Millaskats." We found beautiful cats and kittens and one really took a liking to the dog in the crate we brought in with us.Since the kitten to be purchased was to be a companion to my dog, we kind of let the circumstances and the friendliest kitten be our choice. We have not been disappointed. David and Milla were very gracious and we picked a brown tabby American Shorthair with gold eyes!David has also photographed my Fur Family!

Santa Fe, NM

If, like us, you believe that the day God created the first cat was one of God’s best days...you’ll agree too, upon meeting a kitten from Milla’s cattery, that these American Short Hair kittens were precisely what God had in mind when he created cats: confident, charming, playful, healthy, gorgeous, and robust. And loving.Add to the above qualities the fact that these kittens are living works of art (so beautiful that it takes one’s breath away) and you have glimpsed the magic (and reality) of a kitten from Milla’s cattery.I got my first kitten when I was six years old and, it was love at first sight. He endured being dressed in my doll’s clothes, paraded around in my doll’s carriage. And I’ve had cats ever since then: Percy, Chester, Papillon, Elliot, and Mrs. Roosevelt. And they were wonderful cats. But the fact is, I’ve never before seen a kitten like our Theo (from Milla’s). I’ve never observed a kitten of such great health and vitality, personality, intelligence, and companionability.I had difficulty imagining buying a cat from California—when we live in Santa Fe, New Mexico. But David made each step of the way not only manageable: but easy. He’s a great companion as you make this decision: guiding you, and directing you each step of the way. Including coaching you once the kitten is in your home and making the transition from cattery-life to home-life with you.We cannot recommend Milla’s cattery highly enough. I’d write more but Theo is rubbing my ankles asking for more fun, cuddles, and purring. So away I go...

He is gentle and playful with our grandchildren and already has the run of the house. His adjustment to his new home is a credit to the way you socialize and care for your kittens. Your devotion to your kittens was evident every step of the way. We are so happy to have him in our home!

From the moment I was warmly welcomed into the spotlessly clean, organized, and cat-loving home of David and Milla Macias, I knew I had found the perfect couple who would help me make my long-time dream com true to have an American Shorthair silver tabby kitten of my own. After the initial interview and several months of waiting, I am now the proud owner of a beautiful, cuddly, smart, playful, healthy, forever friend.Ok, wait, who am I kidding: SHE owns ME, SHE tells ME when to play, when it's time to eat, when she wants cuddles, and, yes, when it's time for a massage. She is absolutely into everything that is none of her business, teases me like crazy, and I am absolutely ga-ga over her.I highly recommend David and Milla if you are considering an American Shorthair. I have witnessed on more than one occasion the love, unfailing devotion, training, and time dedicated to this breed, and they are always available to me if I should need them. I truly thank them for giving me my new bundle of joy.…..talk about the cat's M-E-O-W!

After losing our two Silver Tabby cats last year, we began to look for two new kittens.

We visited David and Milla and were very impressed with their cats, their care and their approach to breeding superior cats. Fast forward, we acquired our two new adorable kittens – ‘Mojo’ and ‘Moxie,’ and we could not be more delighted! They are great cats and we love having them to share our home for years to come!

The owners of Milla’s Kats truly love and care their cats. I visited their cattery before I decided to get a kitten from them. It was a great experience and I immediately fell in love with their American shorthair. I had to wait almost four months for my adorable fur baby , but he is well worth the waiting. He is very affectionate and also well behaved- a rare trait in kittens I suppose. He is everything I ever wanted from a kitten. I know David and Milla have spent a lot of time socializing the kittens for their new forever home. They really did an amazing job. I can’t thank them enough for making my dream come true!

I enjoyed the photos and videos that he would send me while we were waiting for the delivery day. He personally delivered my new kitten to me in San Antonio, TX. I would highly recommend Milla’s Kats to anyone interested in an American Shorthair and I would definitely get another kitten from this breeder first.

Our story is one of loving the American short hair breed. We have had two American short hair silver tabbies and we recently lost our last one at 17 years old. He was truly a part of our family and the most loving animal.We searched for another breeder that could help us heal our hearts. This breeder needed to be special as they needed to understand that our new kitten would come into a family with three kids, two boxers, a farm cat and a very busy household. We knew the first time that we visited Milla’s Kats that they were the breeder for us.They were warm and welcoming and provide such a loving and clean environment for all of their cats. Their love for not only the breed, but cats in general is proven by the strays that they have rescued.We were overwhelmed with excitement when we got the call that they had a male silver tabby for us. It felt like we were adopting another child into our family as we were nervous and excited! We adopted Romeo at 16 weeks old and he is such a love. He purrs at the sight of us and fits right in with the other animals. He and Milla’s Kats have exceeded our expectations. They continue contact with us to check in and help when we reach out with questions.Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us Romeo! We believe there is no better breed!

From a family of 4 with 2 younger children, a 7 and a 2 year old. We were worried about a new kitten fitting in and not having them run for the hills. Well, I can tell you that we are very happy with our new family member who has taken to the family like a pro. Our new kitten, Olive, came in and was affectionate from the get-go and has bonded with everyone. She is very friendly and wants to be involved with the family. She is even okay with have the 2 year old picking her up, even when it is an awkward handling at best. Olive just goes with the flow. The process of getting Olive was very easy. Not being familiar with the process of Milla's Cattery of picking the best cat for you and your family was foreign. But we could not be happier with Olive and how great she is with us. It is also reassuring to know that Milla's Cattery will be available with advice and answers to all of our questions.

Last year we decided to adopt a kitten for our little girls. We’ve done a lot of research to find the best bread for us in terms of friendliness and playfulness, life longitivtiy, health and hair shedding issues. We settled on getting an American short hair because they had everything we wanted!We found Millakats when we searched online for breeders. We went through their page and found they had the most beautiful Americans shorthair cats ever! We knew that this is what we want to adopt; pretty, friendly, and a playful kitten!When we called David for the first time, he made sure to answer all our questions and let us know about every little detail of the process from finding the right kitten for us to adopting her. He knew his kittens’ personalities and which would work for us. When it was time for us to bring our little kitten home, David provided us with the list of supplies we need before we bring her home. He made it easy! Everything was on Amazon and he has selected the best items in terms of quality and price! That saved us time and effort to find the best for our kitten!When we brought Baza home, so many things have changed. She was the missing thing in our family! The kids stopped arguing and decided to spend more time together playing with Baza. Every morning I only need to open their bedroom door for Baza to wake them up, and they will be ready for school in no time. They started to learn some responsibility. They think about Baza all the time and they make sure she had her breakfast and dinner on time, the front door is closed at all times so Baza doesn’t run away, and always make sure she sleeps in a warm place every night! There is this beautiful connection between them. I couldn’t imagine how having Baza will change a lot in our life.Whenever we have questions, we will ask David and he will respond to us in no time. We are so happy about the beautiful new member in our family and the wonderful service David have given us. We truly feel that we are family. Thank you so much for everything, David and Mila!
