WELCOME TO YUKONCATZ AMERICAN SHORTHAIR SILVER TABBY CATS 484-719-8707
I actually hear that a lot from visitors passing through the show halls when they see my cats. With many years of controlled breeding, we have separated coat color and eye color. They have larger rounded heads with a shorter nose area called the muzzle or 'whisker pads'.
The American Short Hair breed originated from the cats that were brought here by European Settlers on the ships to North America. Their beauty and loving nature came to be valued as much as their rodent catching skills.
Whether as pets or for showing, these cats are not only beautiful, but are healthy, easy going, and affectionate. The males are generally larger than the females, averaging 11 to 15 pounds, while females may weigh 6 to 12 pounds. They generally require only an annual vaccinations during veterinary checkups. With a quality diet and plenty of tender loving care, they can live 15 years or longer.
This amazing kitten picture was taken by Sheri Wiznak. I was a breeder until 1996 when my career with IBM took off and I found that I couldn't spend the time with the kittens as I know they needed. I gave all of my females to Sherri but the 'Breed Winning' male, Rebel, went right back to his original mom Rene Copland in Calgary and thus producing these 8 little kittens you see posing on the chair.
I was a breeder of American Shorthair Silver Tabby's from 1986 to 1996. In the years following, my career took me away from Pennsylvania and eventually I moved back in 2009 to help take care of my parents.
I am now located in Central Florida since 2017.
I started breeding again in 2019.
My mom called Hope to see if she could care for me. She did and now I am a part of her family." Yes, Tinsel is a very special little girl, she still lays in my arms like a baby and pulls my hands towards her mouth and licks my fingers. I hope she never stops doing that, it's a reminder that for 2 weeks I was up 24/7 nursing and caring for her. I thank you Karen for entrusting me with the care of this beautiful little girl.

For more entertainment. There is a video near the bottom Kitten Vs Tigger.
When I say my kittens are raised under foot and in the bed at night believe me it is more fun than you can imagine.
First there was nice warm milk.
You might be bigger than me, you cannot sit on the end table period!!
