Because of the problem of identity theft we have set the detailed recent family history sections for viewing by family members only.

There are two catteries included in this site, UpperValley and Allpurrs.

Allpurrs has been involved with Maine Coon and Siberian breeding. UpperValley is working with the advancement of a new cat breed now registered as Tennessee Rex. The REX indicates that the breed has curly/wavy fur.

UpperValley is a breeding project to continue the development of the Tennessee Rex breed and have the breed recognized by all the predominant cat organizations. This breed has now recognized as Preliminary New Breed in The International Cat Association and we have breeders in the US, Canada, Portugal and Poland.

There is just one Tennessee Rex older kitten available now. She is one that received the special TR gene from her dad but not from her mom. Mom also has just one of the TR genes. The special gene is what is called a recessive gene and for the cat to fully do it's thing the gene pair, one from each parent need to be the special TR gene. Many traits come with just one but not the satin or curls and waves.

If anyone is interested in joining the Tennessee Rex development project please get in touch with me or with Sandra Scarrow, our Breed Chairperson. I can furnish her email address or she can be found on our Facebook pages.
