Wondering how many different breeds we have here, and by breed I do mean a cat purchased from a breeder.
My cats are all Ocicats, a few show neuters that got me started in the breed and the rest breeding cats.
Their colours are tawnys, chocolates, chocolate silvers, black silver and blue.
A couple of our girls have been mated and are pregnant.
Ashia, our chocolate spotted girl is 34 days along and has a lovely little belly forming. She is expecting chocolate spotted and chocolate spotted silver kittens.
Charlotte, our blue spotted girl is 25 days along and has just the...
I was with another breeder this morning picking up our meat orders, both our cats readily eat chicken and beef liver but we know another breeder who's cats won't eat liver at all and reject any meat with liver in no matter how small an amount (she feeds meat chunks a few times a week rather than...
With the very hot weather, several days over 105f Malika waited until after midnight to get things going.
We've got 4 lovely spotted babies, all good weights 110-120g (I think that's 3.8-4.2oz). Malika is kneading and purring up a storm
3 females and 1 male in black silver, chocolate and...
I was just emailing with another breeder how we seem to have some sort of time manipulation going on
21 days to pinking up crawls by, as do the remaining 44 days (or so).
Then the next 12 weeks we have the kittens flies by so very quickly
Ashia's babies are 11 days old now, all doing very well. Very active and growing up fast.
Love those baby blues

Just wondering if the governing bodies in the US (or Canada since I know Sohni is Canadian) have rules about the age kittens can be adopted out.
Both associations I belong to have 12 weeks in the code of ethics, other states it's 10 weeks. Breeders can be de-registered if found to be adopting...
Malika has just 1 week left of her pregnancy, she's very very round but it hasn't slowed her down, still very active only she waddles now
Enjoying some bird watching while the bubs play soccer in her belly
She's had an excellent show career so far with some very special comments, can't...
Ocicats is a word rarely said correctly by people looking at the breed, usually they say Aussie-Cat or Okky-Cat but last week I had a call from someone calling them Octi-cats.
I'm a little worried he'll be disappointed they only have 4 legs
A friend who breeds Aby's gets a lot of Abyss-nian...
Time is fast approaching for our girls to be mated
we are planning to send Malika to stud in january or when she calls next (both girls were taken off with accupressure mating) and Ashia in Feb or late Jan if she calls.
Malika is black spotted silver carrying chocolate, she will go to a UK...
