Modern mixed with Moderate
Every Cat considered for breeding must be mentally and physically sound. We try and focus on Modern Style cats, however, not all of our cats are of "extreme" type. We put health above all, then temperament, then lastly, type. While most of our cats can and do show, we are not a cattery that solely focuses on making show winners. We breed for what we think is best, which is razor sharp profiles, balanced earset, green eyes and happy, healthy cats.
what you can expect with our kittens
Core Vaccines, Parasite control and Microchipping
Each kitten is given age appropriate, core vaccines,(FHV1/FCV/FPV/Rabies).They get topical parasite control and a microchip implant. We DO NOT give: FeLV, FIP, or Bordetella vaccines. we no longer recommend these and suggest you research them and discuss with your vet before giving them.
We practice ESN
We do ESN (early spay/neuter) with all our kittens. All pet kittens are altered prior to placement NO EXCEPTIONS. We have wonderful vets who performs these surgeries for us and the kittens do very well.
we are a "no-Declaw" cattery
We love our kittens. That is why we are a NO DECLAWING cattery. Onychectomy, even if done by laser, is a risky and non-beneficial practice. It has a large risk for behavioral problems such as biting and urine marking, along with increase risks in very painful arthritis. The short term pain may be minimal, but long term can be crippling. In he UK his practice is considered very cruel and is not done. until we here in the USA improve our stance, we will have it in our contract that you may not have Onychectomy/Tendonectomy performed on our kittens.
ABOUT THE ORIENTAL LONGHAIR
So you think you want a slinky?
Oriental Longhairs are a cousin breed of the Oriental Shorthair, Siamese and Balinese cats. They are often called "slinkies" for obvious reason. They are long, lean cats, many with stunning green eyes and large, flared out ears. Many are said to be highly intelligent, playful, and demanding. Orientals range from extremely outgoing with strangers to reserved. However to befriend an Oriental is to have a loyal cat for life. Orientals have been known to be great cats to clicker and leash train.
Orientals are not a good pet for everyone. Busy owners will find that having an oriental can be tough, as these are active, social cats who value cuddling. In colder climates, you may want to provide your thin coated Oriental with a heated bed, since they do get cold easy. Some are destructive like tiny gremlins and have been known to steal objects and hide them. An Oriental must have plenty to do. Some owners have to "baby proof" the home in order to stop a stubborn slinky from stealing the bread.
Orientals/Siamese are mouthy. They will often meow or cry to express emotion, even when its 2am, and you need sleep! Some even have very raspy, downright unplesant voices that only a mother could love!
This is a cat who is extremely sensitive to anger, change and worry. You can never force an Oriental to do anything they do not want to. Or you may be sorry! Many Orientals do better with another Oriental as a buddy, but it can vary from cat to cat.
If you still feel that you would be a good home for one of our slinkies, you are in for an adventure. While they do take more work than a "normal" cat, the reward of sharing your life with these little guys is wonderful. They are almost otherworldly in their ability to understand humans. Once you have shared your life with one, you will never want to be without.
