Well a lot has happened since I last updated. On June 29, 2016 I flew to Canada to pick up Raya's Hot Stuff of Gaia, aka "Pepper". He will be the first stud that I will be allowed to use at my cattery. My mentor Sue Perkins got him from Yvette Hout's cattery Raya. He is a Red Mackerel Tabby with white.
I cannot wait until I am able to mate him with the female that I co-own with my mentor Sue Perkins. Her name is Gaia Indigo Moon of Kirleecoat, aka "Smurfette". She is a Blue Devon Rex. I have a feeling they are going to make beautiful kittens. I have already had inquires about when I will have kittens available. Of course that depends on many things. First I am waiting on Smurfette to be 18 months old (9/18/2016). That is the age that I have decided is appropriate to breed her. I also have to have her blood typed and checked for polycystic Kidney Disease and Congenital Myasthenic Syndrome, these are both genetic issues associated with the Devon Rex Breed. I then must wait on Pepper to reach sexual maturity. That is anywhere from 5 months to 10 months of age. He is currently 5 months old. Then I have to wait on mother nature to do her part.
I will update again at a later date.....Stay tuned : )
