We have just one "kitten" still here at our cattery. She was looking for a new home but is now part of our breeding program. She is long hair and carries one of the special Tennessee Rex genes and will be available now to another breeder in the Tennessee Rex development program or when the time comes be our second queen.  This could happen during the 2020-2021 winter 

We weigh the kittens daily until they are about six months old then at least weekly. Their weights are logged daily on the cattery spreadsheet until they are adults. This produces a weight chart. We will no longer update the web site chart daily but report her weight about once weekly.

Our kittens are given litter names for our reference. Each litter has kittens all with the same first letter followed by a vowel in ascending order. This litter is our "S" litter, our previous litter was our "R" litter and so on. It will be fun picking names when we get to "X."

Names are selected with help from a web site called "Behind the Name," checking where the the name originated as well as current use. That web site is very helpful in making these selections. I try to stay away from typical names and occasionally use a name that is significant to the cat fancy. In this litter we named one kitten Solveig, Dr. Pflueger's first name. She passed away before we had advanced to Preliminary New Breed. Dr. Pflueger was the head of the TICA Genetics committee. She was the one that really got this breed established and where the cats I resumed to work with came from in 2011.

The kittens were born between 0844 and 1430 EST in Athens, Vermont. We have video recorded the first three and the last births.


Pictures of the kittens were  taken on 24 March 2020 and on 25 April 2020. The third set was taken on 7 June


Savney is  our male tennessee Rex carrier kitten. He is nearly solid cream color long hair but as a carrier does not have the curls or satin.

Solveig is looking for another Tennessee Rex breeder to join and help with the advancement of the breed. If you would are or would like to become a TR breeder please call me at 802 869 3456 or email to ipxcat@aol.com

we have decided to add Solveig to our Tennessee Rex breeding program if it turns out that she is not spoken for. Ideally we would like to see her go to another breeder once she is "with kittens." Thia should be before mid winter 2021
