Sabrina and Glory December babies
We put Sabrina with Glory way back in September hoping to have babies in November, but we just never confirmed that they had bred. Since we never witnessed this mating, we don't have an expected due date for when Sabrina will have these babies, but from her size, we fully expect she will have her babies before the end of the month.
Sabrina is a silver patched girl. She's got a gorgeous coat and those nice big eyes that always compliments the American Curl's pretty face. Sabrina is a great mom. She always has been.
Sabrina had 3 kittens in her litter last year.... she's pretty big though. so we're expecting at least 4, maybe 5 babies this time.
To reserve a kitten from any of our winter litters, email me at PSALM0512@yahoo.com. I would love to hear from you.
Glory is a red and white boy. His dad was also a red and white bicolor. Being a 2nd generation red and white bicolor, we can expect that bicolor gene to dominate in any of his offspring.
Both Lovebug, his dad, and Glory come from Curlniques bloodlines. Shulamith, the first American Curl is a Curlniques cat. We have been working with Grace and Joe Ruga, the founders of the AC breed for many years. Lovebug was Grace's "pick of the litter" from a Curlniques/Curl Essence breeding a number of years ago. Lovebug was named by Grace. His full name is Curlniques In the Light of his Grace. In keeping with that name, we named Glory "In the Light of His Glory". We housed Lovebug for Grace and Joe until we retired him . We kept Glory for our breeding program because he was an improvement on his dad.
What we are expecting from this mating
This is the 2nd litter from this mating. Last year, Sabrina and Glory gave us 3 kittens that we named "Ginger", "Spice" and "Nicey" ( for Ginger, Spice and Everything Nice). We showed Nicey a lot in 2019-early 2020. He was so pretty, he blew every one of the judges away. Below are a couple of his photos. Sabrina gave us 2 red and white kittens, one a boy and one a girl, plus a silver patched girl. However, in past matings between a red and white boy and a silver girl, we've also gotten a couple of calico girls, so we are really excited to see what she gives us this time.
