Prepare for CUTE!
At this time, we are waiting for our new queen, Amethyst (“Mystie”), to go into heat. She will be bred with new stud Blue Topaz (“Jazz”). Mystie is a lilac colorpoint and Jazz is a chocolate-carrying blue mitted; as a result, they can produce only blues and lilacs, most likely in the mitted pattern, although colorpoint and bicolor are possible.
This will be our last breeding of 2016.
From start to finish, this is a 5-month process (9 week pregnancy then 12+ weeks until the kittens are ready to go home). If you’re looking for a kitten now, I am very comfortable sending you to Bev, Lena and Kristie, depending on where you live and who has available babies.
Zhiva is an affectionate but shy girl who needs a quieter, more relaxed household than we can provide (rambunctious kittens and hormonal adults stress her). Zhiva is a large girl and not much of a lap-kitty (she’s heavy and she knows it), but loves sitting next to us and cuddling.
Because of an issue with one of my queens (who we retired very early), Jazz will only have one girl to breed with – he’s related to almost every other queen in the area. Once he and Mystie have bred, Jazz will be retired. He’s a HUGE boy; at 7 months old he was fully 10 pounds. On top of it, he’s a total cuddle-bun!
If we can’t provide what you want in a cat or kitten, we are definitely happy to make recommendations with other quality breeders with sound practices and high ethics, who may be a better match. Just ask, or visit our Important Links page and look at Friends of Rhapsody.
If you’re looking for a Ragdoll or are simply interested in meeting our cats and kittens, feel free to contact us now, and we’ll either set you up for a visit with us, or give you the contact information for any of these great breeders (or both – embrace the power of AND!)!
Visits are always welcome as an opportunity to educate people about what to expect from the breed. Even if we don’t have the purrsonality you’re looking for, we are in contact with other ethical, quality breeders in our region and are very happy to make strong recommendations.
