About Dolly: I am a RN, clinical informatics (nurse computer geek) at our local hospital.
A lifelong lover of cats, the
Devon Rex allowed me the opportunity to actually have a kitty of my own (Read my page about allergies for more info). Pic is of Noodles and me...our first rosette!
About Dennis: A former truck
driver and landscaper, Dennis has always been an animal person. Dennis had a
stroke in Sept of 08, and is now disabled and a stay-at-home kitty dad. Dennis
has two daughters and a granddaughter who live in New Mexico-and believe it or not, all of our children’s names
begin with the letter “D”.
Where we are: Dolly was raised in South Texas and couldn’t wait to move to the mountains! It took many
years to accomplish this, but we finally did. We happily live in the Rocky
Mountains of Colorado, near Salida.
background: We began showing
Easter, 2009 and currently attend every show we possibly can.
Breeding Background: Ms Blue Bonnet was our first attempt at breeding.
Our CurlyDolls name is registered with CFA as of 2010, and with TICA as of 2011. We are members of the Devon Rex Breed Club and Foot of the Rockies Cat Club. Dolly is a member of the CFA Devon Rex Breed Council, a Director at Large in both the Foot of the Rockies Cat Club and the Devon Rex Breed Club.
Our kitties: Have free run of our over 2,000 sf house-they are
raised uncaged and underfoot, except when there are reasons they must be separated
(like during breeding times or kittenings). My stud cat, Noodles is very well behaved and sleeps with us nightly. We only have our very spoiled,
loveable Devon Rex.
Kittens: we basically breed to support our habit, and
occasionally have kittens that must go to approved pet homes. Please see our
Available Kittens page for more information. We are a very small cattery with
limited kitten availability, so if you are interested, get on the waiting list
early! Kittens are welcome to fly in-cabin with you, but I do not ship.
Thanks also to my recently added virtual mentor, Pam Dowling of Madcaps in New Zealand. I had the pleasure of meeting Pam on my trip to NZ in March of 2010.Pam with Bella, one of her curlies-
And a kitty named after me! Dolly the Devon
I am also blessed to consider as friends Jade and Bobbi of Jobara, Jen of Megarex, Cindy Steadham of Steadham Cats, Darlen Easum of Blu-Paw, Wendy Garcia of Hostahaven and Mary Ann Gobat of Rainingrexes.
My friend, Sheryl Flake, WELCOME to the world of breeding and showing Devons, Sheryl! Her cattery is Devonology.
