Interplex: Uppervalley Breeders And The Tennessee Rex, Satindelight Angelique (formerly Breeding Resumes)

This page is changing to Satindelight Angelique's queen page Mamagoldencurls and Pippin have new pages.


Satindelight Angelique
Satindelight Angelique
Satindelight Angelique, a Tennessee Rex gene carrier from British Columbia, Canada.
Our second queen is here for breeding with Pippin. She is the pick of the litter, carries only one Tennessee Rex special gene and really shows her beauty and lovely long hair. Angelique is a red with white and has faint tabby markings. We may need to change her color to red tabby. She is about a year and a half old with four white toe socks to offset the red. A purrfect temperament, she will become a lap cat in due time. Right now she is always under foot.

It looks like Angelique may be coming into heat. Good news! We are watching -- and so is Pippin . . .

Satindelight Angelique was thought to be carrying kittens based upon her steady weight gain but then something went awry and her steady weight started ups and downs. We believe she may have lost her litter very early in the pregnancy. She was bred again and this time delivered just one kitten. We believe she was terrified by snarling Pit Bull dogs kept by our nearest neighbor. .

Angelique took the place of Mamagoldencurls in our bedroom kitten nursery. She had been gaining weight at the rate we would expect but had two setbacks for unknown reasons. In the past one minor dip has regularly happened about three days before delivery but nothing like this.

Angelique returned to her base weight of about 3700 grams (8 pounds). With only one kitten who is now very much on his own and has our whole home to explore we planned to wait to breed her again when she is ready. This occurred on the first of January 2020. The August kitten is a robust individual. So far he has not gotten himself in trouble that would require a call to MOM 911.


A dip in the weight of Angelique is likely due to the visit of another queen who was here to be bred. This can cause a disruption in the progress. Things are now back to normal and Angelique is once again progressing as expected.

UpperValley Radium is a dark red tabby male with long and rather unusual fur, a bit spongy looking like the TR carriers in Australia. The disappointing news is that after all that effort there is only one kitten who is a gene carrier and not a full rex with curly hair. A new web page is set up for him. We have changed his name to Radium at the request of his mom, because he does have a sparkle to his fur when the sun shines on him.

Both Angelique, Radium and Pippin as well as all the other kittens are included on our master cattery spreadsheet. I chose to include the weight of both parents on this single chart (above). Radium has his own chart now posted on his web page.

The previous litter remains on our web site at February 2019 kittens , Mamagoldencurls' kittens., as an archive.

UpperValley Radium's (Angelique's kitten) page is at August 2019 kitten, Angelica's Kitten Page, where his weight chart is posted.
9 January 2020, Radium is now six months old
