|Cats and Kittens available
Cats and kittens available as pets are of the same
quality as our show kitties. They may not be "showable"
because they were born with a long tail or a stump, or
their eye or ear set may not be just right, but they are
still healthy, loving babies that we take pride in
If you are interested in receiving information about kittens, please
contact me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be glad to discuss
any questions you might have about my kittens, or Manx in general!
Currtail's Sgt. Pepper, a black
and white long haired boy.
Sarge is the lap baby of the
Romanxx Annabell Lee of Currtail is an odd eyed (one blue/one copper
eye) girl. She would do best as an only cat. She has retired from breeding
and is 5 years old.
Currtail's Hope Springs Eternal, a Tortie/White
short haired female. Hope has had a nice
show career and is ready to retire to a forever
home. She is three years old.
Part of being a responsible breeder
is caring for those who can't care for
themselves. Those cats who have
been abandoned, left at a shelter, or
surrendered by the owner for
whatever reason still need a place to
call home and a loving person to
care for them.
We feed several feral cats who make
our front porch their home (home is
where the food is!). When we are
able, we have these cats altered
(fixed) and make sure they have their
Our pets, Bob and Smokey, were
both obtained from rescue agencies.
Both had difficult beginnings but
have spent many years bringing joy
and comfort to our family. While both
have now crossed the Rainbow
bridge, they will always have a
special place in out hearts.
We Have fostered two lovely Manx
boys for the Prince William Co. (VA)

Bandit and JoJo have gone to their

The babies that we couldn't part with!
Scuttles will be living with our son, Chris.
Currtail's Punkin. Punkin was the runt of the litter. She
was very tiny and frail as a kitten. We nursed her into
the healthy girl she is today. She's my husband's
Feral cats are also known as strays.
While they can provide a great service
to communities by keeping down the
"varmint" population (moles, mice, rats,
etc), they can also be a nuisance.
Over a seven year period, a pair of
feral cats, at a rate of two litters per
year, will produce 420,000 offspring!
By trapping, altering, providing Rabies
shots, then releasing these cats, feral
cat colonies can be maintained without
the nuisance behavior that breeding
ferals are responsible for. This plan is
also more cost effective than rounding
up and "euthanizing" (killing) ferals.
Euthanizing programs can cost local
governments over $50,000 in tax
dollars every year. I have been
working toward establishing a
trap/alter/release program in my
county. Unfortunately, money is hard
to come by, the local animal control is
strapped financially and is already full
to overflowing with unwanted cats and
dogs. Ferals who show up on my porch
are given a chance to get to know us.
Then, we trap them, take them to the
vet for altering (spay/neuter) and
shots. While they are in surgery, a tiny
clip is made in the left ear. This is how
anyone can tell if the cat has been part
of a T/A/R program. The cat is allowed
to recover at our house before
returning to the wild (usually under my
proch!). After the surgery, these cats
are less aggressive and very content
to hang out where they know they will
be fed on a regular basis. Right now, I
have three ferals living at my house.
Miss Kitty has been here for 7 years!
We have a litter of four ferals in an
isolation cage in our basement cattery.
Once they are old enough, they will
receive their shots and surgery, then
return to the outside. Their health is
checked carefully and they are not
exposed to our breeding cats. If
anyone is interested in adopting a feral
kitten, they are available for the cost of
the surgery. This way, I can continue
with my T/A/R program without taking
money from animal control.
Booger is one of our feral kitties. He was nearly run over
by the lawn mower!
He was so congested that he could neither see nor
hear(thus, the name "Booger"!) . The vet gave him an
antibiotic shot and some Amoxi liquid. After he was altered
and given his shots, he was returned outside. He is a
happy, healthy boy. His mom has also been altered.

Walrus is a dock
