Prepare for CUTE!
School is starting – again!
September / October 2014
Our cup runneth over.... with boys.
Lilac mink Darya had her babies on July 5. Three kittens from that litter are available: a chocolate mitted boy, a chocolate mink mitted boy, and a lilac lynx mitted boy.
Two weeks later, seal mitted Zhiva gave us a bit of a surprise: Our first “super” litter of seven. Six of those kittens are available: one seal colorpoint girl, one blue mitted boy, two seal colorpoint boys, and two seal mitted boys.
Sound like a lot of boys? That’s because it is. Our waiting list was composed almost entirely of girls and bicolors. So if gender or the paint job isn’t too important and you want a cuddle bunny kitten, come see us!
Our stud Misha is being retired next week. He’s an extremely affectionate boy who loves to be cuddled and is very gentle and loving with the babies, but we’re keeping his daughter by Circe and another by Zhiva, and keeping him from breeding with his daughters may prove extraordinarily difficult. It’s not a risk we want to take.
Darya is having a very hard time of it physically, so she’s going to be retired soon too. This ends my mink line. I’m going to miss them – minks are a lot of fun. However, she didn’t give us a breeding-worthy girl to continue her line, and there’s no way we’re going to try again. Darya is sweet and affectionate, and gets along with everybody.
Zhiva will also be retired. She’s a bit “stressy”, and is giving indications that she’d be much happier with less competition for attention. We will be interviewing for “Only cat” placements with her. She’s a very sweet lap cat, but is too easily intimidated by other cats.
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.
