About Us and our American Shorthair Cats: 

My husband and I have a small cattery located between Milwaukee, WI and Chicago, IL. We are dedicated to raising, improving, and bringing awareness to our favorite breed, the American Shorthair Cat. We are focused on keeping the American Shorthair cat breed pure, and making healthy, hearty, loving cats that meet or exceed the breed standard. Our main objective is to produce show quality cats that illuminate the time honored traits this breed is treasured for. To reach this goal we work with other catteries throughout the World to enhance the quality of all American Shorthair Cats. As a result our cats are agile, loving, and superior hunters. They are loyal, intelligent, and still maintain their ancestral traits that brought them to America with the arrival of the first settlers. Read the breed history written by: Valerie A. Edwards at for more information on this wonderful cat. If you are looking for a new family member the American Shorthair is the perfect cat.

The American Shorthair Cat is a medium sized, hearty cat, with a water resistant coat. They are easy to care for and adapt quickly to new settings. We prefer to raise our cats lovingly underfoot which makes them able to adapt to dogs and children. Here at Murrznpurrz we spend a great deal of time with our cats to ensure that they are in the best form possible. They are a part of our family: which we wish to share with others.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have decided to take a hiatus from breeding. At this time, we do not have any cats or kittens available, nor will we have any for the foreseeable future. If you are interested in a cat or kitten, we can refer you to other breeders that we have worked with.

We would also like to thank everyone who has adopted from us, over the years. Please continue to send us updates on your cats, as we enjoy seeing how they are doing.
