Forever Kittens Cattery has
decided to offer a wonderful new breed to our clients! As many of you
know, we have a great love for the curled eared variety of cat, this interest
attracted to us a lovely rare breed known as the Highlander cat.
Cats have Natural Short tails, Curled Ears and can be rather large sized.
They are slow to mature, continuing to grow for up to 3 years. So, keep in
mind that your sweet "little" baby will get to be a "BIG"
baby. About the Highlander Cat The
Highlander is currently a Preliminary New Breed with the International Cat
Association (TICA). If purchasing your Highlander from breeders
not listed on the Highlander Breeder's website, ask for proof of TICA
registration before you buy. If they cannot provide proof of TICA
registration it is NOT A HIGHLANDER! For MORE information on the Highlander Breed Please

What makes a Highlander a Highlander and not a Highland Lynx ~ as told to me by Holley Wise-Nicholson:
Highland Lynx was the original breed registered with REFR. Joe Childers, the breeder chose to call the straight
eared kittens Desert Lynx, Pure white kittens-Alpine Lynx, Curly coat kittens-Mohave Bob. Except for the one f
eature in each cat, they were the same breed.
When the Highlander Lynx was taken into TICA and made into a Highlander, it became a different cat really,
with different standards and different rules.
So if we register our cats as Highland Lynx with the REFR, all the kittens with straight ears are called Desert
Lynx, and those with curled ears are the Highland Lynx.
If we have Highlander cats and register with TICA, ALL kittens born of Highlanders are also Highlanders
(regardless of ear or tail manifestations) Much like a Manx born with a tail is still a Manx.
**In short the Highlanders are TICA Registered and though they got their bearings in the Highland Lynx with
The REFR registry, they are now their own cat. The Highland Lynx and the others mentioned above are
registered with REFR.
following information was acquired via internet research and via Highlander chat
lists. If the original author of the following will please contact
me, I will be more than happy to give you due credit. I am not the author
of the following ~ though believe it is quite accurate: The
Highlander catsí roots are somewhat of a mystery with legends of bobcat
hybrids, descendents of Hemingway cats, and spontaneous mutations in barn
kittens. The true beginnings of the breed may never truly be known, but we do
know that it is descended from the Highland Lynx, which is a cat created by
using a variety of breeds, including American Curl, American
Bobtail, Jungle Curl, Junglebob, as
well as a variety of other breeds.
The Highlander has
many unique features and in fact is a powerful looking animal, but in reality,
it has a fun loving, playful, and laid back personality, which makes it the
perfect cat for any household. The Highlander is usually a large cat, although
females tend to be smaller than males. Other unique features, which make this
breed stand apart, include the slightly curled back ears and the naturally short
tail. Highlander breeding
programs continue to selectively breed to protect and enhance this distinctive
look as well as to enhance the bloodlines to keep them genetically different and
pure from other breeds. Although their look is one of power and fierceness,
Highlanders are fun-loving, good-natured cats that constantly entertain their
humans with zany antics. They enjoy being the center of attention.
Although the Highland Lynx was created in 1994, the Highlander breed was not recognized by TICA until 2005. There are Highlander breeders throughout the United States and they are working to progress this unique and amazing breed through the New Breed program until they eventually achieve Championship status and are considered a true purebred cat.
This is a very adaptable and loving breed that is equally happy in a very active or a very quite home. They get along well with children and other pets. Here at Forever Kittens we will continue to strive to achieve the TICA breed standards for the Highlander and share these wonderful cats with the public!
