Pat has retired from breeding and relocated to California.
raise our kittens
breeders of Abyssinians and Somalis, we are concerned
about producing healthy kittens with the best possible
temperaments. Of course, we are also hoping for beautiful
kittens that will grow up to be as close as possible
to the show standards, but health and temperament are
always our primary concerns.
An evening watching TV with the kittens
are usually born in our bedroom and remain there until they
receive their first vaccinations at about six or seven weeks
of age. After their first vaccinations, the kittens are allowed
to join the rest of the household. There they get used to all
the usual household commotion, like vacuum cleaners, doorbells,
telephones, adult cats other than mother, and visiting humans
fussing over them. They spend lots of time in our laps and in
active play. After receiving their second vaccinations and their
immune systems are beginning to strengthen, no earlier than
weeks, most kittens are ready to go to their new homes.
We do not allow kittens to leave without their reaching a certain
level of socialization, so they are ready for a strong start
in a new home.
vary according to the color and the quality of kitten, but
in general, prices start around $1000.
We are somewhat
"picky" about finding the right home and match-up
for our older cats, since we know their personalities so well.
We have found that mostly they adjust to a new home very well and seem
to revel in more individual attention, although some take longer than others. They will make wonderful
loving pets! And remember, an Aby or Somali remains very playful
for almost all of its life.
Sheila does have a some retired breeding cats available for placement.
They vary in age and in personality, so if you have any interest in them, call or email to inquire. These cats are available for the cost of current shots and shipping/transportation if needed, and, if not currently spayed, the cost of spay.
Here are a list of the adults and retirees:
Roxie - Cinnamon Silver Aby female, spayed, born 07/29/2003,
so she is 11. Roxie is affectionate on her terms but shy, and is social with other cats.
Roxie is also slower than the average Aby to warm up to new people and other cats,
but given time will do so.
- Brownie – Ruddy Aby male, born Oct. 3, 2007, age 7, very shy and slow to
adjust to changes. Social with other cats. Never used for breeding.
contact Sheila for more details about these adults.
