Interplex: Uppervalley Breeders And The Tennessee Rex, FEBRUARY 2019 TENNESSEE REX KITTENS

Our kittens are now six months old. New portraits are in the works.

The kittens have just about taken over the house They are ready to go to permanent homes. Mom and her second kitten, a male, have returned to Tennessee. I plan to keep the other cream as a queen in training. Our other kittens are looking for family homes and are ready to leave now.

To aid in the health care of our kittens we weigh them daily and enter the weight on our cattery spreadsheet. If there is something that doesn't look right in their gain it raises a flag to watch for trouble. To make this data easier to visualize (a change in the day to day weight gain really stands out) the spreadsheet automatically makes a chart of their weights.

The kittens weights are color coded and match the text in their information below. HOWEVER, now that the kittens are over four months old we are discontinuing their daily weight chart updates. We continue to check their weight regularly until they have moved to new homes. The torties and the blue are available to good homes. Contact me at EMAIL for details

The kitten pictures gallery below
is our most recent photographs taken in mid May, 2019

New pictures are planned to be added by mid July.

A word about our temporary kitten names: We assign a sequential first letter to each litter. The last litter names all started with P. This litter is a duzy! They all have to begin with Qu. The third letter is a vowel in sequence. It got tricky with the fifth kitten, Quu... and #6 is made up. The first three kitten names are taken from Native American names.

There's a large gap below.
We have not figured it out yet. Just scroll

UpperValley Quanah
Cream mackerel tabby Short Hair Female

I'm calling her short hair but she may actually be closer to long hair like her dad.

This TR gene carrier kitten will be staying at UpperValley


UpperValley Big Red (formerly Quetzalli)
Cream mackerel tabby Short hair Male

He's the big guy of this litter even though he was the "runt" during the first few days. Guess he just had to get things rolling.

This gene carrier kitten is now at his new home in Murfresboro, Tennessee. This move has nothing to do with being a Tennessee Rex carrier kitten, it's just that the breeder lives there. We will really miss his antics!

His mom, Mamagoldencurls, has delivered six brothers and sisters now that she is back home. They are all doing well and the breeder is also looking for other breeders to join in the Tennessee Rex development program.

UpperValley Quispe
Blue Short Hair Male

My favorite -- Looks a bit like a Russian Blue but is a far cry from that breed. . This guy is now available as a special household pet. He has very faint tabby markings. He carries the TR gene but the curly hair is not expressed unless that gene is received from both parents.

He is available now as a household pet and is very people oriented. Contact me at EMAIL.

UpperValley Quova
Black Torbie Short Hair Female

This black tortoise shell tabby has lost the dilute in the black gene and is closely colored to our Enigma, a TR from our 2007 breeding. The kittens now have access to the whole house during the day.

She is available now as a household pet that is very people oriented. Contact me at EMAIL.



UpperValley Quuppa
Black Tortie Short Hair Female

A quiet but very active little girl Frequently she prefers to be by herself but will join in when the others are romping and chasing each other. A very gentle kitten but extremely playful.

She is also available now as a household pet that is very people oriented. Contact me at EMAIL.


Uppervalley Quyzer
Black Short Hair Male


He comes in second as being shy. His coat is just like Thunder Cloud's, our five year old solid black. He is a beauty in his own right and will make a great companion.

Quyzer has now moved to his permanent home.
