Violet is retiring and available

Violet has retired from breeding and is available to a new home. She is almost three years old and recently spayed.

As a show cat she earned the title of Supreme Grand Champion. At home she is very much a lap cat and especially enjoys bedtime snuggles. If you want a cat pressed up against you at night, she’s your girl.

If you are interested in Violet, please email us at atlastcats@gmail.com and tell us a bit about your household and why you think she’d be a good match.

Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated!

Queen Sara Saturday gave birth two girls (Laverne & Shirley) on April 16th, 2024. Logan, the father, still refuses to take responsibility for them. He should be proud, though, because when these girls were eight weeks old and introduced to the rest of the cattery they adjusted faster than any kittens we have ever seen,

Usually kittens will be a little overwhelmed when introduced to a new environment. They may hide a little or stay on one side of room. But not these two girls! They were exploring everywhere, climbing the cat trees, and snuggling in our laps in no time.

Both of these kittens are reserved.

Some introductions are in order…

We’ve been remiss in introducing some of the new denizens of our household! Please welcome…

Hollywood

Hollywood (Holly, for short) comes to us from Purrcificoon in California (hence the name). Okay, she’s actually from San Diego, but from New Hampshire they seem pretty close to each other, right? Among her other talents, Holly loves to fetch rabbit-fur toys, making her request for play by dropping a toy in front of you. As a torbie she was strongly opposed to getting a bath before cat shows, so instead of going to shows she is going to hang out at home and wait for the right boy to woo her.

Mycroft

Mycroft comes to us from Rubicoons in the great state of Maine.  He’s a very playful kitten and extremely talkative. Right now his chirps are kind of high pitched so he almost sounds like a girl in heat, but we’re sure that as he matures his register will lower so he can sing to the girls like Barry White.

Charli

Charli is the son of Logan and Tiger Lily. He is a sweet boy and earned his Grand Champion title in his first cat show as an adult. However, he truly didn’t enjoy the process of showing (he was gentle with the judges, just obviously scared). We aren’t ones to force a cat into the show life if they aren’t suited for it, so despite his potential for greater things we’ve retired him from the show circuit so he can concentrate on romancing some ladies.

Just Ducky!

Pixel gave birth to three lovely kittens on December 1st, 2023. She was a few days late, but after a visit to the vet (no c-section, just some oxytocin, thankfully) they all came out fine.

They are eating solid food, using the litter box, and climbing anything that looks climbable. They’re a very personable bunch and run up to greet us when we enter their room. We think they like us and aren’t just expecting food. That’s the story we’re going with.

Okay, we helped Pixel for the first few weeks and supplemented their diet with formula, so they might have expectations, but they just like cuddles, too.

Logan, the father, knows the deal is and admitting nothing lest Pixel comes after him for kitten support.

We named them after Donald Duck’s nephews (or in the case of Louise, his niece) because we were looking for things that come in threes and we’re pretty sure that the Musketeers have been overdone.

All of these kittens are reserved.

Swiss misses and misters

Violet gave birth to five lovely kittens on August 1st, 2023. They are a couple of weeks younger than Tiger Lily’s kids, so they are still in the process of figuring out solid food and the litter box. They are growing like weeds and are VERY active.

Logan, the father, had no comment, possibly slowly realizing that he has multiple paternity suites coming his way. (He planned to blame it on Buster until we explained that he is no longer equipped to make babies).

All of these kittens are reserved.

The theme for this litter is places in Switzerland, because we spent a lovely two weeks there visiting Marie’s sister this summer. That’s one of the reasons we haven’t had many litters so far this year. We had to plan things so that kittens weren’t born or weaning while we were away, so we timed it so that no kittens would be born sooner than a week after our return.

The strong, silent types

Tiger Lily gave birth to four beautiful kittens on July 17th, 2023. Logan is a first-time father and is happy to confirm that he is, indeed, a fertile turtle. The kittens are doing amazingly. They are playing, climbing, eating solid food, and learned to use the litter box without a hitch.

This started out as very quiet litter, so we decided to name them after famous mimes.

All of these kittens are reserved.

Fezzik is available

UPDATE: We believe we have found a home for Fezzik. Thank you!

Fezzik is available! At three years old he has retired from breeding and is ready to be a pet in his forever home.

We love him to pieces and he is chill with our other cats, but we can only keep so many of our retired cats as pets without making it too crowded and making sure everyone gets the attention they deserve.

And Fezzik loves attention! If you go away for a few days he will shower you with love when you return. And we mean “shower” literally, because he will drool all over you out of excitement. (Don’t worry, if Fez gets regular attention and love, the day-to-day experience isn’t all that moist).

Fezzik is a big, strong boy, so you should be physically capable of handling him (or have a partner to assist) when you brush him or clip his claws.

If you are interested in Fezzik, please send an email to atlastcats@gmail.com to tell us a bit about yourself and why he might be a good fit for you, and we’ll send you the online application.

Logan is a Quadruple Grand Champion!

Out boy Logan has earned his TICA title as a Quadruple Grand Champion just in time for him to romance some of our girls. It could be that they were impressed by his title, but we think it was his good looks and charming personality.

Congratulations, Logan!

Love to see them

Starry Night gave birth to three beautiful kittens the evening of February 13th. That’s close enough to use a Valentine/Love theme for their temporary names.

They are curious, playful, and a little feisty. They are also very smart! (Of course, our opinion on how smart they are is strongly influenced by how quickly they master the litter box. People talk a lot about emotional intelligence, but don’t discount the importance of poop intelligence).

All of these kittens are reserved.

Generations

Do I know you?

Buster and his grandson, Smile, look like Dr. Evil and Mini-Me, except that Buster isn’t evil. Usually.
