My cattery name Red Ferne is from the movie "Where the Red Fern Grows" one of my favorite films. My Great-great Grandmother I am told was Cherokee and the legend of the Red Fern in the movie has always moved me a great deal and its from these 2 movies that I found inspiration for my cattery name and my breed. My goal is to improve the Abyssinian for the show ring and to strive for excellent health and temperament in our kittens/cats. All our breeding cats are screened for PK/PRA and blood typed and also screened for tritrichomonas foetus this is a parasite of the colon becoming more common in cats. We only have 2 or 3 litters a year so fill out inquiry form if interested in a future Red Ferne Kitten.
This is Red Ferne Judah Ben Hur aka Do Lou. He was the first kitten born on 2/27/03 to my Abyssinian breeding program and we thought we were going to lose him he was a miracle for me that work day. He was the only kitten in the litter. His Mom was on day 67 and had not gone into labor yet and being a inexperienced breeder I took her into my clinic since I was worried, this was also a work day for me. A xray showed what appeared to be one dead kitten. The Vet I was assisting that day told me to set up the incubator I questioned this but she insisted I think she wanted to give me hope. But after assisting the vet with the c-section out came a very alive and very weak kitten another vet was present to help and worked with him and took over with his vitals. It would be another 48 hours before he and his mother Ch Micoaby Blue Diamond and Rust of Red Ferne aka "Boo" (GA) would start to do well and the rest is as we say is history. This kitten had to be a keeper. Lil Judah did turn out to be show quality but hated showing so he fathered one litter and was then neutered to go on to be my beloved and cherished buddy. I lost my cherished boy on 11/14/17 till we meet again I miss him so....
