Brows portrait

PracticalCats Doughtybrows, "Brows or Eyebrows"


born: July 18, 2016 ••• PRA N/N - COI 0.01%

When litter D was being born, there were two pointed girls and one kitten left to go, and Stephanie prayed immensely to the litter gods for a PRA clear, non-pointed girl to keep. Shortly afterwards, a strikingly marked ebony tortoiseshell girl was born, and the first comment that was made was ‘Look at her Eyebrows!’ Boy, did that name stick. Eyebrows is her mother’s daughter in so many ways, endlessly manipulative, utterly charming, and figured out about two minutes after she could walk how to wrap people around her little speckled paw. She screams for food, stares at you until you pick her up, and although she’s a bit smaller than her siblings, has absolutely no issue keeping up with the biggest of them or the adult cats. Just like her mother, one of her best friends is Growltiger, who is twenty` times bigger than her. As Flare’s breeder once said about her mother, Brows is larger than life.
Brows is an ebony tortoiseshell Oriental shorthair in all registries, and carries chocolate, dilute, and pointed/Siamese (and probably some genes for excessive personality).

Helle portrait

PracticalCats Hellebore, "Helle"


born: March 19, 2017 ••• PRA, PKD, and MPSVI-severe negative. COI 0.487%

Practicalcats Hellebore is a member of the Lavender Spring of 2017 -- four lavender kittens and three lilac points in two litters. She caught our eye very young, and has matured quite nicely into the promise that we originally saw. Sweet as pie, very people oriented, Hellebore has a beautiful earset, great coloration, and a nice long body.
Hellebore is a lavender/lilac solid in all registries, and carries pointed/Siamese.

Sync portrait

PracticalCats Idiosyncrasy, "Sync"


born: April 22, 2017 ••• PRA, PKD, and MPSVI-severe negative. COI 0.384%

Sync is our keeper girl from our I litter, and proof yet again that Deuce replicates himself in all of his kittens -- but Sync has an even better earset, along with her father's length, her mother's amazing profile, and wonderful green eyes. She's also sweet as pie, full of love and purring, and in love with people. She'll be showing a bit as a kitten and then as an adult -- come fall in love with her in person!
Sync is a chestnut silver ticked tabby Oriental shorthair in all registries. She is heterozygous agouti and carries pointed and cinnamon.

Taffy portrait

JustOriamese Killer Queen of PracticalCats, "Taffy"


born: May 6, 2017 ••• PRA, PKD, and MPSVI-severe negative. COI in progress

This ridiculous little girl caught our eye the minute her breeder posted pictures of her, and it should be immediately obvious why. She is beyond flashy with her two sided face. She's loud and demanding and full of affection, as we've come to expect from JustOriamese kittens. We're really excited to be able to add more red girls to our cattery, and we love her sturdy body and large size, which our cats tend to lack. Besides her stunning colour, she's got a lovely profile, a moderate ear set and lovely Oriental shaped eyes.
Taffy is a chestnut calico Oriental shorthair in all registries. She carries cinnamon (and maybe some other surprises).

Cayenne portrait

Permes Cayenne of PracticalCats


born: June 2, 2017 ••• PRA clear. COI 5.10%

Cinnamon is a colour that we absolutely love, and finding cinnamons that are unrelated to our cats, in good health, and with a good structure is so challenging! Thankfully, Permes Cattery in Seattle, WA, USA came to the rescue and sent us a lovely, large cinnamon solid girl to enrich our cinnamon program. Cayenne has a great earset, a lovely long body and tail, and a heart warming personality, playful, interactive, and a lot of fun.
Cayenne is a cinnamon solid Oriental shorthair in all registries, and carries pointed.

Sylph portrait

Practicalcats Kanata Sylph


born: July 1, 2017 ••• PRA, PKD, and MPSVI-severe negative. COI 1.76%

Our litter K, the sesquicentennial kittens, born on Canada day the 150 anniversary of the country, was absolute agony for us as breeders to watch grow up -- so many beautiful kittens, all with great temperaments, and we were hoping for the magical combination of a PRA clear girl who also carried cinnamon. As the kittens were growing up, our eye was drawn time and time again to the elegant, refined seal point girl with the darkest blue eyes... and she was the only PRA clear cinnamon carrying girl in the litter. She is also a leg climber, but often likes to sit a little back and regard the world before plunging in. I'm a little afraid she'll end up like her Great Aunt Hater in the end, much to all of our dismay.
Sylph is seal point Oriental Shorthair in CCA and CFA, and seal point Siamese in TICA, GCCF and FIFE. She carries cinnamon and dilute.
