UpperValley Pippin, our retired sire


Pippin was born here at the UpperValley cattery in February, 2017. At first we planned to neuter him and offer him as a pet since the genes he carries are promulgated through siblings in the litter. Physically he appeared to possibly be sterile but on the day the appointment for neutering was made he presented himself as a whole male for the first time. One more reason to suspect that cats can not only understand us but can read our minds.

He has proven his capabilities with a dam half again as large as he is so we imported a very beautiful red with white Tennessee Rex gene carrier from British Colombia, Canada. He has also been successful with Angelique but we only had one kitten this litter. She may have had problems with the litter during the later stages. She has been terrified by snarling Pit Bull dogs kept by our nearest neighbor. Those doge will likely be kept inside by her breeding time next occurs.

Angelique waited until the new year before she became receptive again and she was right on time the first of January 2020. His next litter was born on 7 March, right on schedule, too!

We plan to neuter Pippin as soon as the CORONA 19 situation will permit this to be done safely. He will then be offered as a full Tennessee Rex adult pet.

At the end of January we brought a rescue female cat who was receptive and owned by a family in Walpole to meet Pippin at his "hang out" upstairs and let the two have an undisturbed tryst. It was successful and his next litter of four kittens was born on 8 April back at her venue in NH. We will receive one of her kittens to add diversity to the TR breed later on. One of the kittens is shown here on the right. Marylin will likely have two of the kittens available for new homes about the beginning of summer.

Pippin's first litter with Mamagoldencurls is posted
on the February 2019 kittens page.
His next litter with Angelique is
posted on August 2019 Kitten page.
His third litter was born on 7 March 2020 out of Satindelight Angelique.
We plan to keep her for future litters
.

Pippin has been kept as our resident Tennessee Rex Sire for three breedings, two with a domestic cats for genetic diversity and the third with a TR gene carrier.
One breeding is still pending.
His first litter was born 9 February 2019. The second on 9 August 2019. He also sired a litter that went home in utero with Mamagoldencurls to be born at her Tennessee home.
