About Us and our American Shorthair Cats:
My husband and I have a small cattery located between Milwaukee, WI and Chicago, IL. We are dedicated to raising, improving, and bringing awareness to our favorite breed, the American Shorthair Cat. We are focused on keeping the American Shorthair cat breed pure, and making healthy, hearty, loving cats that meet or exceed the breed standard. Our main objective is to produce show quality cats that illuminate the time honored traits that American Shorthair Cats are treasured for. To reach this goal we work with other catteries throughout the World to enhance the quality of all American Shorthair Cats. As a result our American Shorthair Cats are agile, loving, and superior hunters. They are loyal, intelligent, and still maintain their ancestral traits that brought them to America with the arrival of the first settlers. Read the breed history written by: Valerie A. Edwards at http://www.alken-murray.com/ASH-history.html for more information on this wonderful cat. If you are looking for a new family member the American Shorthair is the perfect cat.
The American Shorthair Cat is a medium sized, hearty cat, with a water resistant coat. They are easy to care for and adapt quickly to new settings. We prefer to raise our cats lovingly underfoot which makes them able to adapt to dogs and children. Here at Murrznpurrz we spend a great deal of time with our cats to ensure that they are in the best form possible. They are a part of our family: which we wish to share with others.
** We had our first litter of the season (2013) born 2/25, consisting of 1 kitten, a Silver Tabby & White, male. We are watching him to see how he turns out, he is a big boy. Our next litter is due the first weekend in April, Tabby & Tabby & White expected. Then we may possibly have a litter due toward the end of April expecting all Silver Tabbies.**
