few words about me...
fell in love with the pixiebob breed around 8 years ago, after
seeing them in a local cat show. I later purchased a pet pixie
and after 6 mos. of owning him, I had to have more and decided
to take the plunge into breeding and showing them. My life has
always involved animals. I grew up on a small, gentleman’s
farm. We had a rabbitry and lots of farm animals. I have shown
cattle, horses in several disciplines and done 12 yrs of rescue
work with a local organization, Forgotten Felines. I had the
chance to work with many breeds of cat, but dealt mostly with
the taming and socializing of young feral kittens and cats to
get them ready for adoption. This was my area of specialty.
From this I learned a lot about cat psychology.
I work in the healthcare field. My animals are what keeps me
grounded and relieves the stresses of my work a day life. However,
my profession has taught me much about the human condition and
how animals can benefit us. It is the knowledge of science,
medicine, bone structure and body condition that I am fortunate
to bring to my breeding program. Temperament is the most important
factor in my program. Without a good temperament, the rest of
the cat is unimportant. Followed closely by health, correctness
of movement and body structure, beauty and type to the Pixie
Bob TICA standard.
My cattery is small and all the kittens are born and raised
in the house. They are given a series of vaccinations that include
FELV, wormed, on a flea control program and pets are spayed/neutered
before going to their adoptive home. In the time they are with
me I evaluate their temperament, socialize them to dogs and
other cats and start them on house manners training. Every effort
is made to match kitten~cat to the lifestyle the new adoptive
owner leads and the other existing members of that household,
be it human or animal. This means that I will not always have
the correct animal for you, as I will not place an animal in
a particular situation if I don’t see it as a good match
for both the animal and the human. All cats are health tested
for FELV, Feline aids and given an exam by my vet before entering
my breeding program.
I am active in the cat show world; this gives me a chance to
get a judge’s opinion on my kittens and cats. Show competition
also allows me to visualize the things I need improve on, to
better the breeding of my animals. It also serves me to see
what other breeders are bringing to the show ring. You have
a different perspective when viewing your cats, against other
Pixie Bob breeder’s animals.
I place most of my kittens locally or through showing,
but will ship within the United States.
my kittens page are some of my available kittens.
Feel free to contact me for any questions about the pixiebob
breed, my pixiebobs, my available kittens.
