ForestKatz is a small cattery
located along the upper Gulf Coast
Region of Texas. We breed Norwegian Forest Cats, but other fur
kids do share our home as well. We are small in numbers with
currently one male, and four breeding female Wegies as they are affectionately
called by most. Our breeding program from the ground up
has been developed with an emphasis on continuing and maintaining
the excellence in breed health, type, and temperament, as all are
just as important in the home, as they are in the show hall. We
strive for quality in our breeding program over quantity, which in
turn limits the number of litters we will have in any given year’s time.
Hi, I’m Donna, and along with my husband Jim
and our two sons, we are ForestKatz. I’ve had a love for animals since I was a
small child, having raised cats, dogs, birds and horses. Jim grew up
with mostly dogs as a child, so a furry fluffy four-legged kid
running around the house took him a little getting used to. But, he
has now seen the light and has joined me whole-heartedly in this
passion of ours! Our sons have grown up into fine young men who
have a love for animals, so we know we did at least something right!
They have attended many shows with us, doing things like stewarding,
clerking, and also showing our Wegies. We recently have been blessed
with a beautiful young Granddaughter Kristina who will one day be showing her
own little Wegie in the show halls along with us! It has definitely turned into
a family affair! A family passion!
ForestKatz is a registered cattery with
TICA, ACFA, and CFA. We
tend to show only in TICA, as we are members of three different
clubs in that association. Jim holds a board position on two of the clubs,
and I'm also a
board member of one of the clubs. See, he really has seen the light! Jim and I have now
our requirements and passed the "Test" to apply to enter
into the Judges Training of TICA. January, we go up before the TICA
Board of Directors for acceptance into the program so paws crossed!!
