Great to meet you!
We purchased our first American Shorthair in 2004, not long after our youngest daughter was born. It didn’t take long until we were head over heels smitten for our sweet little brown tabby kitten. We were blown away by her unbelievably soft coat, affectionate spirit and confident nature. We were hooked and knew American Shorthairs were the cats for us.
Not long afterward, we received our first male American Shorthair, a beautiful silver tabby kitten, from Kerry & Marian Schorsch of Silvershorthairs.com. And that was the beginning of our incredible experience breeding and raising classic silver tabbies.
Since 2004 we have operated Talariah cattery in a sweet little agricultural community of southeastern Washington in the midst of Washington wine country. Talariah is the name of our farm, and is an acronym based on the names of each of our 4 daughters.
Fast forward 13 years time, we reconnected with Kerry and Marian once again, seeking to add another female to our breeding program. However, as it turned out Kerry & Marian were instead looking to retire from their cattery. Together we decided to combine our programs, to continue the Silvershorthairs.com cattery and bloodlines here at Talariah
In the midst of the worst winter we have seen in decades, Kerry boldly trekked from his home in North Dakota, to our farm in Walla Walla, to meet us in person and deliver his beautiful sire, Mr. Silver Shadow to our cattery and our family.
We look forward to meeting and working with each of you as we continue the incredible bloodlines that Kerry & Marian have begun with SilverShorthairs.com.
