Welcome to Gizmo Cattery



The Jerry Miller Award was created out of respect for a man who dedicated much of his spare time to the advancement and promotion of the Canadian Cat Association during his lifetime.

This award is presented annually to a CCA member that demonstrates the type of devotion and passion for CCA and the cats that we love and celebrate this evening.

Claire Lamontagne became a member of the Club Félin de Montreal shortly after beginning her Burmese breeding program under the cattery name 'Gizmo'. Over the years, Claire has performed many duties for the club including hospitality and judges' coordinator. Claire takes her responsibilities seriously, and when faced with an obstacle she is able to overcome it with charm, diplomacy and a great sense of humour!

Claire actively promotes and increases awareness of CCA in Quebec as a member of the Club Félin de Montreal, and a CCA registered breeder. Over the years Claire has belonged to, or assisted other clubs in Quebec with the preparations for their shows. Her advice is often sought after by show committees and other members of the cat fancy.

Claire is a dedicated Burmese breeder who's first priority is the health and happiness of every cat she produces. Her diligent efforts have rewarded her in the show ring as well as in the hearts of her kitten's new owners.

Claire Lamontagne is not someone who searches for or needs the spotlight, but she is deserving of it as she exemplifies the spirit of CCA and the man the award is named after. BRAVO

Congratulations Bob and Elaine,

Claire & Carole Lamontagne


Many people have asked us when we started and how. Carole who is my partner and oldest daughter was first attracted to the Burmese in the late 80’s at the Place Bonaventure Show (Le Noel Des Chats), which is organized by Le Club Felin de Montreal (of which we are members).

Our Cattery opened its doors in the early 90’s after falling in love with the breed and soon after it was registered under the name of "Gizmo". Why Gizmo. Well we all loved the Movie Gremlins and the good guy was Gizmo. We are registered in the CCA (Canadian Cat Association), CFA (Cat Fanciers Association), and TICA (The International Cat Association). 

Our beginning as Breeders was not without bumps, however over the years we have made many friends in the fancy who have helped us by sharing their experience, time and knowledge to help make us better breeders. Our thanks go out to each and everyone involved. 

We have kept our cattery small, and we specialize in the four recognized North American Colors which are blue, platinum, champagne and zibeline.
