My name is Laura Benko and I welcome you to the Loveknot cattery website.

I first began showing Himalayans and Persians in the mid 1980's. When I married and started a family, a had to give up my beloved cats... but my love for them and desire to show and breed pedigreed cats remained with me throughout the years.

When my youngest child became a senior in high school, I began my cattery again — this time with colorpoint and solid Exotics.

Show News 2020:
Loveknot's First National Breed Win!

Everyone at Loveknot are very excited about our latest star in the show ring, GC, BWR, RW Loveknot Sports Coat & Levis.

Levi made the 2019/2020 season an unforgettable one and a pure pleasure.  In a short kitten career of only two months, Levi earned the title of 7th Best Kitten in CFA's Midwest Region 6.  At the age of 8 months, he then earned his Grand Championship in two shows.  Levi relished the attention he received adopting the persona of a seasoned competitor very early in his Championship career, ending the season as 5th Best Cat In Championship In the Midwest Region and CFA's Best Exotic Longhair National Breed Win in Regions 1-9!  Levi's Breed win is the first National recognition for Loveknot Cattery and we are so proud of this handsome boy pictured below!
