HCM Additions

We would like to thank Xena and Madison's owner. She took both girls to the Irvine CA HCM clinic in July - and both passed with clear scans.  Kender's Warrior Princess ( Draco x Flower) and Kender's Madison ( Ivan x Raysa) . 

We will continue to scan our breeding kitties, encourage other breeders to do the same, and hold those we work with to the same standard.

PKD

Well today was a good day for Kender. We had 4 cats scanned for PKD - all scanned clear/Negative ! Mother Bella (7yrs old) and son Draco (soon to be 3) , Mother B'Lana ( 7 years of age) and son Kotey (age 5) - all scanned clear! If you are an owner of an offspring from one of these cats , we are happy to share a copy of the results with you for your records.

This was the first clinic of its kind in the AZ /SW area to have PKD included and are extremely grateful to the organizer of this clinic and hope for its continuation.

And not to be forgotten - we are extremely grateful to Dr Russell Green DVM PhD , for his support of the fancy, in helping to  ensure we as breeders are indeed on the right tract in using only healthy sound animals in our breeding programs.  Dr Green and his staff were wonderful !

Pretty Awesome , wouldnt you say?   Now , how about taste? well I was fortunate enough to acquire a couple of their "sampling" cans - these are super cute tiny 1.7 ounce cans of their product - and let me tell you. My cats growled over it, fought over it, gobbled it down and even in 1 instance picked UP the empty can and ran away to guard it for later perusal!   This product got a big paws up in our house and we are sincerely hoping our local raw Blue Ridge Beef distributor will begin carrying this product so we can order it in locally.

Happy 14th Birthday

Just wanted to take the time to wish Happy 14th Birthday to one of our retirees - Kender's Just Clowning Around, known by his family as Boris.  Born July 1, 2000.

Here's what his mom, Carol has to say about him recently........... Boris is a very loving, spoiled rotten, demanding, beautiful, big, 14 pounder. Loves his screened patio and spends most of his time, awake or sleeping out there on his condo tower. Other places he likes to go is the top of cabinets in kitchen. All windows have smudge marks at Boris' nose level. Funny how things happen. Once in awhile, I'll catch him sleeping in the sink in the bathroom. Ivan taught him that trick.
