About me


My  name is Anne Marit Jerpstad, and I'm a breeder of abyssinian cats. I'm living in Steinkjer, a small town in the middle of Norway.

In 2004 I decided to fulfil a dream I have had for years; and that was breeding cats. In May that year, I bought two Abyssinians: GIC (N)Rødknappen's Dolly and IC (N)Rødknappen's Emil, and in the end of June, GIC (N)Oracle's Priestess Pythia arrived. Later that year, I got my breeder name accepted by NRR and FIFé.

Ororina has been my nick since 1995, so finding a name for my cattery was easy. It’s a fantasy name influenced by a cartoon heroine named Ororéa from the stories about Spirou. She is a beautiful, brave and self-willed princess.




My goals are to breed Abyssinian cats according to the standard of FIFé, and of course embodying all the most exquisite of Abyssinian traits.

All of my cats are treated like family members. Even though we live at the rural part of Steinkjer, we have build a huge, fenced cat run for the cats as I do not want to risk cross bred cats.



If you have any questions about the abyssinian or are interested in a kitten from me, you are welcome to contact me :-)
