How our Journey began in 2013

In 2012 I purchased my 1st Highland Lynx females, Rajah & Asjah
I fell in love with the breed
By 2017 my cats would be registered through The International Cat Association
I breed Non-standard, poly paws, naturally short tail, curled ears, long hair

On occasion get a standard, straight paws, naturally short tail

I am mainly breeding for Pets as I would much rather have my kittens in someone's loving lap

I also work with the Novel tail variant (unknown)

We have participated in the Highlander Genome Project-tail gene variant

Sire: Empirestatelynx Gunner  Dam: Graceland of Empirestatelynx 

All our cats are DNA tested through Optimal Selection

I breed for the health of the kittens, I stand behind what you purchase


At Empire State Lynx, we are focused on providing  cattery services with the highest levels of customer satisfaction – we will do everything we can to meet your expectations


All our cats get plenty of human interaction and socialization. This allows you to own a healthy, friendly kitten that will not be timid or afraid


With a variety of offerings to choose from, we’re sure you’ll be happy working with us. Look around our website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us


We hope to see you again! Check back later for new updates to our website. There’s much more to come!

        Kitten Nursery

We have a spare room that was converted into a Nursery where the kittens stay in 7'  dens with their mom till they start coming out of there nest.  


Once potty trained they are set free to climb condos, bridges and shelf's and run on the kitten wheel.


It is constantly kept clean and well maintained on a daily basis.


The kittens stay in this designated room until they go to their 

forever home.


This is where a lot of human contact and socialization occurs so that 

you will receive a friendly, healthy kitten from us, and not a timid.


At 10-11 weeks they get their 1st vaccines and of course are wormed several times before joining their new families.


All kittens come Vet checked, NY state health certificate, clean fecal.


No kitten will leave until 12 weeks of age or till we feel they are ready to go.

Our Nursery has been completely redone


Our Nursery has been updated, new paint & vinyl floor planks


Our birthing pens where mom & babies stay.  Mom is allowed to roam free in the room
