Sweetie’s new kittens

Early Monday morning (9/6/10), Sweetie gave birth to two little kittens.   The first was a tortoiseshell female who was breech, and needed to be pulled out.  The second was a black male kitten.

Both seem to be doing well, gaining weight, and hopefully will be ready for new homes sometime in November.

We’ll try to post photos soon.

Dreamy’s Orphan Boys

Dreamy’s boys are 7 weeks old today.  We’ve transitioned them from bottle feeding to eating from bowls, though they still are eating softened kitten chow.

Last night I took their first ever photos, though I wish I’d used a royal blue blanket behind them instead of the navy blue.  I need to find my royal blue blanket, because the black kittens show up so nicely against royal blue.

These two are still not ready to go to new homes, but we wanted to post their photos.

We’ll update as they continue to grow, and approach sale readiness.  I need to mail in their CFA registration paperwork today.

ElCloud Cattery is Under Construction!!

Yes, you’ve come to the right website, but we are working on some changes to make it more user-friendly!  We are adding page tabs to the top of the website, to help you find information more easily.  We have a few pages left to develop, with photos of our adults and previous kittens.  Have patience with us!

No kittens currently available

Yesterday Mistletoe went home to a new cattery.  So we no longer have any kittens for sale.  Frankincense is now the lone kitten from last Fall.

We do have two orphan boys of Dreamy’s that we’re hand-feeding, but they aren’t available for sale at this time.

None of our females are currently pregnant, but we will update when we are expecting new litters, or when we are ready to sell Dreamy’s boys.

Welcome To ElCloud Cattery

We’re glad you stopped by our website!  We are a small family cattery in rural Kansas, raising extreme flat-faced CFA registered Persians.  ElCloud Cattery is cageless (except for times when it is needed for health reasons), and our kittens are raised underfoot.  Our cats are our pets, living in our home as part of our family.  Our kittens are well-socialized when they leave our home:   with adults, children of all ages, other cats, and a medium sized dog.

I’ve been told that this website is confusing for some people to navigate, so I wanted to explain some things.  This website is actually a blog.  A blog (web log)  is an online journal.  New posts are at the top, and older posts are at the bottom, and on previous pages.   But every single post has a category, so they can be found more easily.

The categories can be found in the left sidebar, under the photo of 2 kittens.  If you click  on Available Kittens, for instance, you’ll see posts related to any kittens we are currently selling.  Previous kittens will show you posts and pictures of kittens we’ve sold in the past.   ElCloud Queens and Studs will show you pictures and posts about the adult cats we breed.   In each of these categories, the newest posts are at the top, and the older posts are at the bottom.

If you’re in a category, and want to return to the main page, just click on the Home tab at the top.  It will take you back to the front, with all blog posts showing again.

We have also added page tabs to the top of our website, with pertinent information on cats we have for sale, how to contact us, etc.

I hope that helps you understand how to find what you’re looking for in our website.  I do use it as a journal, and sometimes I just post a chatty update on our cats and the cattery.  So if you are here and the top posts are just chattiness, that is why.

Thanks for taking the time to better understand how to find your way around our website.

Kittens are almost all gone

This past weekend, Sweetie’s Holly went home with her new family.   Tomorrow Joy’s Soot and Coal are going home to their new family.  That will only leave Sweetie’s Mistletoe for sale, since Frankincense is staying here with us.

Melody settled into her new home well, and she is staying where she is.  She’s enjoying her new, quieter home.  It’s time for us to decide whether to retire Sweetie now, or later.  We’ll post more about that once we have a decision.

Today was bath day for the cats and kittens again.  They’re not real happy with me right now, but they’re clean!  Once they all dry, the brushing will begin.  They might forgive me then, unless I find too many tangles.

We had the windows open this weekend, and the cats enjoyed the fresh air as much as we did.  Soon they’ll all be laying around on window sills, enjoying the fresh breezes and watching the birds outside.

You know you’re a cageless cattery when …

You know you’re a cageless cattery when you hear this on a daily basis …

“Yeeeee-ooooww!! ”

“Oh, I’m so sorry, baby.  I didn’t mean to step on you.  Are you okay?”

Sunday morning, I stepped on Holly’s foot wearing my dress shoes.  Poor kitten!  She’s fine, but I felt bad.

This morning, I stepped on Mistletoe’s foot, but at least I was barefoot.

Gives a whole new meaning to the term “raised underfoot”.    These kittens are definitely raised underfoot.
