Savney and Solveig headed to the Manchester, NH, Airport on Thursday, 25 June, and have gone to West Virginia to prepare for a late August cat show and then move to new breeders, maybe in Canada if the borders are open by then.

We have just one kitten still available now for a new home here in New England. They are long hair and carry one of the special Tennessee Rex genes. Savney will be heading out on a new adventure this week.

The one kitten is waiting for a new home.  I am asking $225 for each carrier kitten and this includes the registration form should you wish to register the kitten as a Tennessee Rex in the  International Cat Association. The kittens are long hair.  Solveig is a red tabby female.

Vermont, the state where our cattery is located, is relaxing some restrictions for commerce and venturing out of the "lock down." This cattery will remain as before with no visitors and me remaining within the cattery to care for the kittens and cats like it has been since 7 March. This is a Vets Administration specification due to my age of 88 years and some compromise of the immune system from the cancer that's been nibbling at me for over 15 years. The kitten and cats that are available to those looking for a pet can be picked up now. Arrangements will be made to pick up or deliver to NH a cat/kitten via email and with the transaction maintaining the "social distancing" requirement. This can be worked out on electronic media. The kittens will be $225 to help cover the cost of breeding and upbringing, including the vaccinations but not the cost of neutering or spaying. This can be done at a local clinic usually set up about once a month.

The kittens that carry only one of the (recessive) curly hair genes and do not manifest the curls and satin glisten are available to good homes now.  They have taken to eating adult cat food which is OK but I would rather see them stay with the kitten formula.

Their weights are logged daily on the cattery spreadsheet. This produces a weight chart. The kitten is five months old.  We will no longer update the web site chart daily but report her weight about weekly.

Our kittens are given litter names for our reference. Each litter has kittens all with the same first letter followed by a vowel in ascending order. This litter is our "S" litter, our previous litter was our "R" litter and so on. It will be fun picking names when we get to "X."

Names are selected with help from a web site called "Behind the Name," checking where the the name originated as well as current use. That web site is very helpful in making these selections. I try to stay away from typical names and occasionally use a name that is significant to the cat fancy. In this litter we named one kitten Solveig, Dr. Pflueger's first name. She passed away before we had advanced to Preliminary New Breed. Dr. Pflueger was the head of the TICA Genetics committee. She was the one that really got this breed established and where the cats I resumed work with came from in 2011.

The kittens were born between 0844 and 1430 EST here in Athens, Vermont. We have video recorded the first three and the last births.


Pictures of the kittens were  taken on 24 March 2020 and on 25 April 2020. The third set was taken on 7 June

NOTE The text colors for each kitten below
are the same as the colors on their weight chart.
