We are a CFA and TICA registered cattery.
Ratatat Cattery is the merging of crazy cat lady besties into one cattery. Although we specialize in the hairless cat, one of us does breed the Devon Rex and Teddy Rex variety. So we occasionally have these breeds.
We started breeding our own cats after purchasing kittens from several other breeders that resulted in severe illnesses. After heartbreak and expensive veterinarian costs, we came to the realization that if you start with genetically sound breeders, you will produce healthy, happy cats and still maintain breed standards.
Our hairless cats are that and more!!!
The Sphynx as we know it today is originally a Canadian breed that derives from a spontaneous genetic mutation. In 1966, one of a litter of kittens born to an ordinary short-haired black and white domestic cat was born hairless. The hairless kitten was then bred back to its mother and another hairless cat was born.
The Sphynx's relative hairlessness is a result of a recessive genetic mutation Both parents need to carry the "hairlessness" gene in order to have all of the resulting kitten born hairless.
People eventually referred to them as Sphynx Cats, because of their resemblance to an ancient Egyptian cat sculpture. This is an intelligent, inquisitive, comical, extremely friendly breed that is people-oriented. They are demanding for human attention and will do anything for a laugh and attention. We call it annoyingly friendly.
Sphynx commonly greet their owners at the front door showing their happiness that you returned. Sphynx are known to be the lap cat of all lap cats. Due to their hairlessness they seek out warmth. This may be YOU!
Sphynx cats are a good choice for people who suffer from cat dander allergies.
Our breeders are raised in our home. They are loved and adored and are a part of our everyday life.
When you purchase from our cattery you will receive a healthy, lovable, annoyingly friendly and maybe a little mischievous member to add to your family.
Be fore warned. No one stops at just one.
Ratatat Cattery predominately breeds sphynx cats. We do occasionally have Bambino, Devon Rex and Teddy Rex.
Our breeders are selected for conforming to breed standard, health and temperament. Every measure is taken to assure your new kitten is healthy, happy ,and pre-spoiled.
