Ragdolls - (All Breeding Stock and Parents tested clear of the HCM gene (Heart Problem)
Regret to inform everyone waiting patiently for the expected litter of Ragdoll kittens - The Queen gave birth yesterday but sad to say - the litter of three babies was born and all three died -
In 30 years of breeding this has never happened before - the poor Queen was most distressed but seems fine now - the Vet had no explanation - but the birth was overdue and this possibly contributed to the deaths. Whatever - she is a young Queen - I may have her spayed - I would not like this to be ever repeated = we shall see - this was her first litter.
Not a happy experience for anyone - unbelievable shock - great sadness all round.
Maine Coons - (All parents and Breeding Stock tested Clear of the HCM gene)
The Maine Coons have been very reluctant to breed recently - but I shall be mating a couple of Queens shortly ---= - hopefully - but I have nothing at the moment.
Note - I do NOT keep a Kitten list. Viewing of litters is booked by telephone or e-mail when the kitties are 4/5 weeks old, up, playing, eating well and able to be handled and showing colours, markings and personalities. You are free to come, look, handle and walk away - BUT if you choose a kitty then a £100 deposit is payable - non refundable unless of course I am unable to let the kitty go due to any cause such as the Vet finding a fault or defect, an accident to the baby, etc. not apparent at the time of viewing.
...... See the News Page for pic of my new Ragdoll Stud Boy - a sure fire replacement for my Billie, such a sad loss, but this boy is really something - and what is more his Line is Billie`s Line and his name "Another Billie" - temperament to die for - even for a Ragdoll - perfect coat and Size and Weight to rival the Maine Coons - and I have some Very Large Maine Coons!! - But with Queenie his Mother and Creme Crush his Dad expectations are High
KITTENS RECENTLY AVAILABLE: For interest and information only - All are now sold -
My Maine Coon Queen Tiger Lily had a litter of 3 kittens 2 girls, 1 boy - The Sire is Triple Grand Champion Applause Mr. Nice Guy - these kittens are looking good - should be large, beautiful and Silver Tabbies. Tiger Lily is a very protective Mother and dislikes any interference so they are not available for viewing until up and running around at about 5/6 weeks. - they look pretty good now and are quite large - Mr. Nice Guy of course is a Huge Silver Boy and his kittens are usually in demand. This picture shows the silver in the coat and the Tabby baby fluff. They will be having their first vaccs. in about two weeks time around 14th Nov. the second three weeks after, plus worming and flea treatment, Insurance and Registration, when they will be 12 weeks old and ready to go to their new homes.
Today the last female coonie was booked - 14/11/16 - next litters probably from end of March onwards and will be notified on this page. I do not keep a Kittens wanted list so if you are looking for a kitten around that time, then check this page and contact me to make an appointment to view.
Incidentally, this litter of Coonies were selected by Purina (Cat Food) for a Christmas Advert. They were pretty stunning! Well, I think so!
I also have just 2 Ragdoll babies - One Boy and a Seal mitted girl (possibly tortie ) now 6 weeks old both already booked. Next litters of Ragdolls not until late Spring - around end of March/April
Kittens sold as Pets are priced on the understanding that they are to be spayed or neutered at around 5 months old. They can be viewed at 5/6 weeks old and booked. A non-returnable deposit of £100 is requested when viewed, chosen and approved. All pet kittens are GCCF Registered, Vaccinated at 9 weeks and 12 weeks, de-flead and wormed, and come with 4-generation Pedigree, 4 weeks Pet Plan Insurance, Kitten Notes and Food Samples, Litter trained and socialised, having been reared with tender loving care and expecting the same from you. They are released to their new owners at 12/14 weeks old .
The GCCF Registration Card is retained by me until I receive the new owner`s Veterinary assurance that the kitten has been spayed or neutered. Spaying for the female and neutering for the male is a condition of sale for all kittens to be reared as Pets.
All my kittens are from parents tested Clear of the HCM Gene (Heart problem gene) by Langford` Univ. Vets Bristol. This Heart problem is prevelant - not only among Maine Coons - Do be sure that wherever you buy your kitten and who-ever from - that you have SEEN the clearance certificate for BOTH parents showing that they have been tested CLEAR of the HCM gene - this is the only way we can try to safeguard our cats from early death and also help to clear this dreadful gene from the breed.
News below of Previous litters: Please Note - the remainder of this viewing page is for your interest only - and to show you the quality and type of my kittens
At Last - Four Super Maine Coon Kittens - will be ready around third week of January - read on ..............
A new litter of Four kittens - 2 Whites (l-Boy and l-Girl) l Red Boy and l Silver Girl - all eating well, playing, looking Good and ready for viewing - by appointment. Picture below - the last one of the group. (The other 3 pics are of Polka`s litter - all gone) Sorry - The Maine Coon kittens are now booked - next litter not due until September onwards
Three more pics of the Coonies now just 9 weeks old - The White Boy is odd-eyed (one Blue one Gold) and is also the biggest!
2 Whites - Orange-eyed girl and Odd-eyed Boy - Just beautiful - from Queen Ikindaliker and Snowman my Blue-eyed Stud. (My Whites are Not Deaf - they do not carry the deaf gene - the White has a masking effect on all other colours and if mated they could produce Blacks, Blues, Reds, Creams, Silvers and Torties depending on the mating - i.e. Ikindaliker is a Silver Tabby - Snowman is a White - the litter is Red, Silver and White)
