Do y'all think I have a crystal ball or x-ray vision?
I don't know. I simply do not know until the kittens are born. You're asking me questions I can't answer. And although I can guesstimate about how many kittens a girl will have based on how big she is, and although I can tell you what colors could possibly come out of a certain combination, I know as much as you do until the kittens are actually born.
Yesterday I had someone ask me for a kitten with "defined stripes" It's a longhair, longhairs never have defined stripes because you barely see them. If you want a cat with defined stripes, get a Toyger, that is as defined as it gets. With an almost shaded mother and a spotted father I am not going to get kittens with a defined mackerel pattern. Often when they are super defined when they are babies, they completely fade out as adults.
Then I get a question from someone else "How many girls will you have in your next litter?" Uhm, I don't know, let me go ask the mother cat, maybe she knows what's hopping around in her belly. How do you suggest I find out about this information?
Then I had a lady emailing me saying:" I am hoping for a red boy from Annushka so I am not going to get one of your current litters but wait". So I emailed back and tell her there is no possible way Annushka will have any reds because her litter is with Volokh and he is a brown tabby as is she so all kittens will be brown tabbies. She emails me back that I never know the miracles that God performs and she is going to wait. Hmm, ok, True. I don't know about all the miracles that God performs but I do know genetics and I do know no red kittens will be born. But, if you want to wait for something that's not coming, that is fine.
Then I get people with an entire list of demands of what they want in a kitten. Do you realize that the kitten is only here for 12 weeks and that YOU have to raise it? I don't have ready to go kittens with custom made personalities, colors and patterns. I don't have a stockroom full of kittens where I can just pull whatever you wish for.
And I seriously get the dumbest requests... "Can you make me (I love the "make me" part!) a kitten that won't scratch my furniture?
Yes I can, let me go to Joanne's and get some cute fabric and I will make you one, otherwise go to Toys 'R Us, Isle 13 bin 25, you may find one there too.
