All of WildflowerAbys breeding cats and kittens are CFA registered and come from Champion bloodlines. The cattery is also registered with CFA. All of our cats and kittens are born and raised in a small, in-home cattery. Our cattery is a "closed" cattery, meaning that no cats are taken out or brought in for breeding purposes. At any given time, there is only one resident sire, and no more than three breeding females. The adult cats are not maintained in cages and have full run of the house. When females are due to deliver a litter, they are they are confined to one full room in the house where they remain alone with their kittens to care for them for approximately ten weeks.
All cats and kittens, once old enough, have access to large, safe decks, where they are free to enjoy this forest environment and engage in bird watching, butterfly chasing and the like without being exposed to the hazards of life in the wild outdoors.
During the period when new kittens are alone with their mother, they receive frequent company and handling by people. By the time they are old enough for placement in new homes, the kittens are thoroughly socialized... "great bedfellows", comfortable with all people, including children, and being intelligent cats, as Abyssinians are, well able to learn and accommodate "house rules" in their new homes.
We periodically check with people who have adopted our Abyssinian Kittens. All people with who our kittens are placed are encouraged to maintain contact with us, and to call anytime with any questions or concerns they may have.
The kittens are born here, at home, without professional/surgical intervention. While we are always present at the time of birthing, we prefer to let the momma cats deliver without any more intervention on our part than is absolutely necessary, except as may be medically required.
