Princess Pretty Face  Born 07/03/2017  AVAILABLE (Reserved for Matthew, Owner of Pretty's dad, Rupert) 


Delivered her first litter of kittens on 01/03/2019

Pretty's parents are Grace and Rupert (below) Both parents are championed.  Pretty is the sweetest girl who loves to have your attention, and look at you in the eyes.  She is not a clingy needy girl, but definitely wants to be near you and acknowledges you. She patiently waits for you to pet her and notice her.  She will be ready later this spring, once her babies are a bit bigger. She will need to be spayed before going home.  She is priced at cost of spay or nominal fee to go home with one of her babies. 

 

It was our intention to breed Pretty once or twice and hope for a show quality kitten. She has bred once. It often takes time to place an adult, so she is featured now in hopes to be placed around Spring 2019.

CH  DesignPurrs Chicken on Cotton Born: 07/03/2015  AVAILABLE  (At Home with Andrea and family as of 02/18/2019.) NOT AVAILABLE

Chick-Chick is a big sweet lump. He loves to lay around and be petted. He can not be picked up and cuddled due to his size. He  is a massive boy weighing in at 13lb. He is on a special diet to ensure his PH levels are appropriate. He will need to be on this food for life. He has a current prescription food since April of 2017. He is stable and happy.  He had an episode of urine crystals and was hospitalized in 2017. He was in the ER  and in and out of the hospital for about 10  days. He received top of the line care and immediate diet change. It was considered to neuter him, but was decided by this breeder and the veterinarians not to neuter because of his weight. Neuter often lets a male gain more weight, and it was decided since he was so large, to give  a diet food and leave him in tact. Therefore, Chicken is an unaltered male. He does not spray nor does he have any aggressive behavior or loud calling for females.  He is a very laid back. His personality and behavior was taken into consideration in making this decision. He was placed with an infertile female (Callalina) for the past 2 years and once in heat, (about 3-4 times a year) he would breed her but no kittens would produce, due to her infertility. He has sired Champions prior to his episode. 


The new owner will need to be a stable or mature or retired owner.  These cats are not for children or an active lifestyle home. These are adult household cats. Chicken will be provided a 6 month supply of food and all of his medical records. He has had 2 full years of stability on his prescription foods and we expect no relapses so long as a cheap food is not given other than intermittently. 


He does live with his grandson now (his replacement) and both are whole cats and do not fight. They do recognize the relationship. However, Chicken will likely fight another whole or neutered male.  Multi- cat households can be considered but one must keep in mind that Chicken will always require a special diet. It is safe for others to eat his food, but not safe for him to eat theirs, other than an occasional sneak and snack. 


At the time a potential match is made with this big boy, the breeder, vet and new owner can discuss potential surgery and placement as a de-sexed pet. In the event this option is elected, he could be a solo cat. 


CH Caleb-Cats Callalina of DesignPurrs.   AVAILABLE  Callalina has gone home with Natalie on 02/28/2019! NOT AVAILABLE.
Callalina is the sweetest and most loving cat you will ever meet. She is shy from new people and only interacts with her person(s.)  

Callalina is infertile and has never become pregnant. She will likely never become pregnant as she is now 8 years old. She has no need for spay as it is not a risk to her health, but we worry as she is very delicate- there is always a risk of (not waking up) from anesthesia, and therefore, based on her history and her age, it was decided between the veterinarian and this breeder not to spay Callalina. There is no benefit but there remained risk. Therefore, she will be placed as a whole cat. 

Callalina is a Pure Persian, meaning she comes from a very small gene pool of Persians who have not had cats mixed in the lines. This type o Persian is considered more rare, more expensive and a real privilege to own. 

Callalina has a personality like an infant. She wants to live in the bedroom, sleep on the pillow and be held, carried, rocked and swayed. She is like having a furry infant. She cries to be held, and before sleep at night, she cries to be secured in the bed (snuggled and safe) with her owner. Any change is very stressful for her and she would not adapt well to any kind of loud or fast lifestyle. She would be better with a retired person. 

 She would also do well with a young kitten. She has loved many young kittens but does not wish to be around other adult cats, unless they are her mate or  kitten she has raised as "her child."  Callalina is sensitive and loving and needs the kindest of owners. She needs to be your pillow mate. You have to be committed to sleep with her next to you and be patient as she transitions into her new home. She will prove worth it! 

CH Eloisa Magdeline of DesignPurrs. Born: 03/20/2011  AVAILABLE


"Habiba" is an old grouch- A SWEET OLD GROUCH THOUGH AND VERY LOVING!  She demands her small pieces of cheese, yogurt snacks, salads, chicken and fine dining. (Basically, she is a rich old gal looking for a luxurious lifestyle.)  She is a true fancy feast cat a shaded silver Persian, considered the "Rolls Royce" of the cat world.  She will love you dearly, but she is indeed of the richer people. Stuck up and looking for the finer things in life. She enjoys slow rides in the car-- looking out the window. She will go with you in a purse bag.  She views the bath as a spa treatment. Hotel traveling, boating. That is her thing.  She belongs with a retired person she can stay at home with and just look out the window all day and then go for an occasional vacation. Don't let her age fool you. This old gal has a good many years left on her but it is time for her to go enjoy her life in full retirement and the lap of luxury. She is not for a young active lifestyle with small children. She would be best suited for a mature adult who has the time to cut up little pieces of cheese for her.  For this girl, food is love. If you give her dry cat food and this is all you give her, she will repay you by stringing it all over the floor. You must give her snacks. Her whole mind-set revolves around food and love. She was spayed some years back and is up to date on her shots and is in perfect health. She enjoys bath time and views it as a day spa. She will male bath and grooming time easy. She complains when you clip her nails though but will not put up much fuss. She is a beautiful girl deserving of a wonderful life. She is a Shaded Silver Persian. She is considered the Rolls Royce of Persians in the cat fancy.

Sire: Kramkattens Eye'm an Odd Fellow! "Skippy" (to show in 2019 season- Import from Sweden) 


Taking inquiries as a pet or breeder. This is an odd eye carrier litter.  Dad is a visual Odd eye, and she has 2 odd eye siblings. 

We have a litter announcement on the Nursery page. The babies will be available around  mid October. There are 3 boys, 2 girls- All Short hair.  We will keep the one calico girl (lower left picture-- named DesignPurrs Lollypop)  but not sure on the other girl just yet. The one boy is very-very- VERY nice (pictured left.) He keeps getting better and better and could be sold to a Show and Breeder home who wants a "Pure Exotic" (meaning no CPC) and who is an odd eye carrier. (Dad is a visual odd eye with many generations of Odd eyes behind him. Mom is an odd eye carrier who has produced an Odd eye in 2 of her 3 litters. (This litter is all copper eyed.) All are carriers of the odd eye gene though. 


The (pictured left) baby's genes: He carries dilute, but does not carry CPC or Chocolate. His coat is plush short and thick for an exotic. His mom is Homozygous for short hair, but dad is Pure Persian, (long hair Persian) so this boys' coat is N/M4. Meaning he has short hair and carries one copy of the long hair mutation and can produce long or short hair depending on the genotype of the mate. He will never produce a CPC or Himalayan, as he does not carry the gene for Himalayan. 

He is from pure Persian and pure Exotic lines. His parents are "Skippy" and "Bonnet."


Lines include DesignPurrs, Kramkattens, Purfurvid, Bagira, Purrinlot, Budmar, Artemis, Day Oh, Ocalicos, Parti Wai, Jerba Nicol,  Psymis, et all. (NICE!)

Baby Born July 07, 2018  Please contact us on this boy as a breeder for your odd eye and exotic bi-color program. Other babies may be considered, but he is the very best of the 3 boys--- if there is a need for such a boy in someone's reputable show program.  

Pictures below are at 6 weeks. Babies are now 9 weeks. (Will upload new pictures soon)

The first girl (below left) is  DesignPurrs Lollypop and she will stay. The second girl right (with more color to her face) we are not sure yet about her-- if she will stay or be offered to another program. This breeder likes a high white face.   The two on the bottom are boys, and the one on the left is potentially a show quality as well as his brother above left. The boy on the lower right is a pet only as the other two are better in type. All are amazing!!! Their older sister is "Speedy" DesignPurrs Eye Love Her! -OE  and older half brother is DesignPurrs Eye'm over the moon "Moonie"

Moonie Has gone home- He is at home with Meg and Elizabeth!!!! Meg and I planned this placement over about 6 months. It took time with Meg's back surgery and Moonie's neuter to get everything settled to bring Moonie  home. 


Moonie is the older  1/2 brother to the above litter.  (Same mom) 


He is a Champion.  He is an Odd Eye Exotic Short hair. He is an absolutely gorgeous and sweet boy. He is just over a year old.  Born 09/27/2016 He is a big fat baby.


He is being replaced by his son who has larger eyes and carries the color chocolate. His son's name is Moonie Jr., and Moonie Jr's mom is Dot.  We dearly love big Moonie but we needed a change in DNA, color-wise. 


Surely we could probably sell him to another breeder for $xxxx plus, but we want him to be a happy and spoiled pet. Do not be shy on this lovely boy. If money was the motivator, we would just sell him to another breeder. Can you give him a loving home? He is a really- really nice and very unique exotic, due to his beautiful odd eyes..   and his FANTASTIC loving big lug/love bug personality! 


His mom is Bonnet. His dad is Chicken. His sister is Twila. 

There are a few babies in the nursery!
