We have two young males
– we have hopes and plans …
Aegon is the son of Olenna, from the A-litter, and we will keep him in the cattery for breeding. He lives in a foster home in Oslo, with a neuter companion. His heart and hips are perfect (May 2016), and he is planned for a couple of matings.
- HCM-scanned with normal heart 10 months old
- HD X-rayed with normal hips
- DNA: Negative for HCM1-A31P, PK, SMA and blood type B
- Has a CAC and thus Champion quality
He is unrelated to our Suki, and he might be considered for a few matings in other outcross catteries.
Fleming is still just a kitten, but will hopefully develop well and pass all health testing (HD and HCM echo) at the end of 2016. If so, he will become our cattery stud next year some time. He is unrelated to all our other cats and can be used for all the females in the cattery.
Keeping entire males can sometimes be quite demanding. Smell and spraying must be taken into consideration, and behaviour and stress when living in a home with breeding queens. A males kept with us, we try to have him fully integrated with the other cats as far as possible.
