Purr on This

We take pride in breeding the very best genetics together for the betterment of the Exotic Short hair breeding bloodlines.  We believe all people breeding have the responsibility of using proper breeding practices and breed to improve the breed.  Breeding is a huge responsibility and should never be taken lightly. We love our cats and kittens and they are part of our home and family.  PKD Negative 


My past in Livestock Genetics

Since a little kid growing up in Iowa I have been involved in the purebred livestock industry and for over 35 years in breeding genetically correct. I am a ISU graduate and have worked with Vets/geneticist throughout the world and in the reproduction industry all my life.    With good genetic practices you try to breed a male to a female that they can correct each others flaws.  Doesn't always work the way you hope but we will do our best to produce healthy well adjusted ESH  kittens with good genetic breeding practices.



Though out my career I have worked to improve genetics for the betterment of the breed and it takes top reproduction practices to achieve these goals.  Our goal is to breed the best to the best and develop a sound genetic foundation to enhance the beautiful breed of ESH. 

We sell purebred, quality, registered kittens that are healthy and DNA - PKD negative. 

No declawing is done in our home and all are raised under foot.

We strive to have the healthiest and best quality kittens available in the area.

Little things about the Exotic

His honor King Bradley deserve his royal title.  He is a CFA GCH with the grace of a King.  He is sweet, humble and has a gorgeous plush coat, cobby body, short legs, expressive eyes, round chubby face....the perfect ESH boy.  He is our only King and we can’t wait to see our babies out of this wonderful guy...His loving personality will breed into his kittens personalities.

Lil more about us

Exotics still have an intelligent curiosity that makes them a joy to be around and since they are so easy-going they get on well with children and other pets


Simple things amuse them whether it is chasing paper balls around the house or watching water drip out of a tap.


While seen but rarely heard, the Exotic has a soft voice and has a vocabulary of chirping sounds.  

We are both originally from Iowa and moved up to Minneapolis MN area to be closer to our grand kids. We have 6 children between us and eight grandchildren.  Three of our children are married and 3 are still single.   Jessica our daughter and Ben are part of our cattery and have Mischa under our Queens.  Jessica and Ben treat their animals like their kids. They both have been raised with animals and reproduction all their lives.  I think Mischa and their cocker Diesel run the household...

We really like the summers in MN with the lakes and gorgeous summer weather...winters can be beautiful with lots of winter outdoor activities but can get long.  We do travel to our get away home in NV in the winter from time to time.

My wife and I  love the companion animals and we look for families to place our kittens in understand this is a long term. Your new kitten is a life time commitment.
