Because we love our Highland Lynx as much as you will!
I am a small in-home breeder in Southern New Hampshire, who has been breeding Highland Lynx cats for about 7 years. In 2012, I became very sick and I used that time to research the breed and cats in general. I chose this breed for their intelligence, temperament and extremely loving character. I just love my Highland Lynx cats who have brought a lot of joy into my life. So sometimes, good things come from bad things.
I work from my home, so I am with them all day. My cats have the run of my home and also have access to roam in a safe outside enclosure They are my pets, an extension of my family with no crates or cages!!!
You are welcome to come and see my cats anytime. I am 8 miles from the Mass border in Milford, New Hampshire.
I have been blessed to have these cats in my life!
What to expect when you get your RockStar cat.
Highland Lynx ears are always curled. The curled ears are caused by a dominant gene that curls
their ears and somewhat narrows the ear canal that requires regular cleaning of brown ear wax. Every cat is
different and if you look in their ears you will see what needs to be gently cleaned. In general, cats that shake
their heads may be a sign that their ears need to be cleaned. It is good practice to check their ears on a weekly
basis and clean if necessary.
RockStar Cattery recommends the use of MalAcetic ULTRA Otic cleanser. The majority of our cats are able to clean their ears on their own and do not need to be treated with a cleanser. For those that do need help in maintain good ear heath we have found that MalAcetic ULTRA Otic cleanser has been instrumental in preventing ear infections and fluid buildup. A couple of drops on a cotton pad and squeezed into the ear is all it takes. MalAcetic ULTRA Otic cleanser is available on Ebay, Amazon, Chewy.com and other suppliers.
Kittens should have their nails trimmed on a regular basis. The pink part of a cats nail is called the quick and is where the nerves and blood vessels are. Do NOT cut this sensitive area. Snip only the white part of the cats nails. It's better to be cautious and cut less of the nail rather than risk cutting into the quick. If you do accidentally cut the quick, any bleeding can be stopped with a styptic powder or stick. By clipping your cats nails when they are young and often in a calm atmosphere, they will get used to it. Here at RockStar Cattery we can help you with any questions you may have with your cats nail care.
Your new kitten should be eating a good quality canned grain free diet specifically formulated for kittens until age one. Cats are the ultimate carnivore, a meat eater by nature, they crave a diet rich in meat, poultry or fish protein. Providing a well balanced grain free wet food diet and plenty of water is key to providing proper nutrition to grow properly and keeping cats of all ages healthy. Kittens have very small teeth and can't chew dry food very well so grain free kibble should be limited to treats and behavioral training. At age one you can switch your kitten to an adult grain free canned cat food. At RockStar Cattery we feed our cats a raw diet. If you want any information about raw diets or have any further questions regarding your kitten's diet, please feel free to contact us.
Every cat is different, but here is what you can get.
The very first Highland Lynx litter was born on July 1, 1995 at Timberline cattery in N.C. The Highland Lynx is the only cat breed specifically developed from two existing breeds. The Timberline Cattery pioneered the development of the Highland Lynx by crossing Desert Lynx cats with the Jungle Curl cats.
The polydactyl gene (which produces extra toes) is a dominant gene which is considered a desirable trait in these cats. They have the same life expectancy as any domestic cat. Many people say they are more doglike in their personalities and highly intelligent. Many people have easily taught their cats to fetch, walk on a leash and more. They get along very well with other cats and household pets. They require the same inoculations and veterinarian care as any domestic cat. They are often larger weighing between 13 and 23 lbs. Highland Lynx reach full maturity at 3 years of age unlike a domestic cat which is 1 year.
Our cats can have Long Tail (LT), Hock or Rumpy; Natural Short Tail (NST) and each cat in the litter can be different.
Polydactyl (Poly) cats may have as many as seven digits on front and/or hind paws, and various combinations of anywhere from four to seven are common.
The curled ears (CE) is a dominant gene so litters will often contain a mix of curl-eared and straight eared kittens.
We absolutely love our Luna Girl, she is our 6 year old sons best friend. I have never seen a cat with such a personality and beautiful markings.
Leo and Fin are GROWING so big! They are so much fun and the kids cannot get enough of them. They seem to have a thing for bananas which is hilarious. We have to hide them or they sneak them off the counter and hide them throughout the house. Between that and Leo's love for climbing all things, I call them my little monkeys. We are so happy to have them as part of our family and for them to have each other. We had to put our dog Sable down in November which was tough. Even the cats had taken a liking and would sleep with her and play with her tail. Now the cats fetch ice cubes just like Sable did.
