"Mr. Whiskers" is a Cat Fanciers Association (CFA) registered cattery name. We are a small, hobby cattery located in Salem, Oregon (Region 2), that specializes in tabby & white and bi-color Exotic kittens. We are heading into year three of Mr. Whiskers, and beginning to work with Odd-Eyed (OE) & Blue-Eyed (BE) Bi-color Persians & Exotics. This is a dream come true!
We focus on quality kittens that meet & exceed the Exotic breed standard, have large round eyes, sweet expressions, & are healthy and happy. Our cats and kittens are raised as part of our family, & are loved as our pets. We keep 4 or fewer breeding females, & therefore are in compliance with the new USDA/APHIS regulations. We are able to ship kittens "sight unseen", though if at all possible, we would like to meet the buyers of our kittens first. We are a FIV/FeLV & PKD negative cattery, & we do extensive testing & screenings to have the healthiest cats. We now scan our adult cats for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) & encourage other breeders to do the same. Our kittens are loved & squeezed on by myself & my kids from the time they are born. Kittens are well socialized & make excellent companions. See our Happy Homes page for references.
My cats come from beautiful lines both local & imported, such as: Ashlin Zots, PL*Jantar, Steadham, Purrinlot, Ark Star, Chastelle, Day Oh, Parti Wai, San-Fe, Kuorii, Desmin, Calivan, and the like.
I'd like to thank my mentor & breeding partner, Linda Donley of Ashlin Zots, for all her kindness and assistance! I'd also like to thank Gloria Busselman of Parti Wai Persians, Leslie Swope of Mt. Baker Exotics, & Piotr Pardo of PL*Jantar, for entrusting me with your pedigree lines. To the other breeders who have shared their advice, knowledge & time with me, thank you!
Most of all, I give thanks to God for his wonderful creatures & his blessings in
my hobby. These animals are such a joy!
In 2015, we begin working with Odd-Eye & Blue-Eyed
Bi-Color genetics in our Exotic Shorthair Lines!
