American Shorthair Cats

Murrznpurrz Cattery

About Us

We breed & show American Shorthairs to primarily the CFA (Cat Fanciers Association) and the TICA (The International Cat Association) breed standard although we do show occasionally in ACFA (American Cat Fanciers Association).

We love to work with some of the rarer colors & patterns (except shaded) yet we still will have the traditional Silver and Brown Tabbies. (Note: We are taking non-refundable deposits for 2016 kittens to avoid confusion over a certain kitten/color. A deposit is $100.)

Karen went to school to learn Veterinary Technician skills and worked in a couple Vet clinics and in different veterinary settings.

Darren has various certifications in the Internet Technology field.

A majority of kittens are sold with a spay/neuter agreement where you agree to have the kitten spayed/neutered by the age of 8 months (no breeding rights obviously). There is also a written health guarantee/contract for the kitten. The kittens will be TICA and/or CFA registered. The kittens are able to leave around 3 to 4 months. We will occasionaly place kittens in a breeder home but will be very picky where they go and what lines they will end up being used with.

You can reach us by phone at 262-492-1804 (between 10 am to 10 pm Central Time) or by email at [email protected]

Beginning November 18, 2013, I will be joining a very large number of breeders across the U.S. in no longer shipping pets. Due to a change in Department of Agriculture regulations for pet breeders that the USDA itself has interpreted in contradictory ways, it is impossible for most persons who sell pets to know whether it is legal to ship a pet that the buyer has not seen in person. Violations of this rule carry severe penalties. For our safety, ALL sales must take place face to face.

This ruling is going to seriously curtail the choice of those wishing to buy the pet of their choice unless you are willing to travel to your breeder of choice regardless of distance. As written this will also affect service animals being made available to those in need.

While we do understand the need to stop those who don't properly care for their animals, and who knowingly sell sick kittens and puppies, we already have existing state and federal laws for those issues.

If you would like to help us fight this bad choice of regulation policy, please contact me or your breeder of choice to see what you can do to help. It is YOUR right to be able to buy a cat or kitten from whoever you choose and to pick it up personally or have your cat or kitten shipped to you or to meet your breeder at a mutually agreed upon place to save you travel and expense. However, you only have that right if it remains OUR right to offer those choices.
