Empire State Lynx  Est 2013            

Welcome

My prices reflect the soaring prices of Vet visits, food expenses, vaccines, wormer's, litter etc. 


Our Vet just did a 30% increase. $89 to just walk in the door. 09/2022 once again an increase, from $86 to $91.00


I am now requiring clients to pay for their own health certificates, I apologize in advance. $75.00 to $100.00 depending if said kitten needs extra vaccines.


Canadian Vetting runs higher as more is involved


Needing transportation:


I will no longer be making arrangements for ground shipping.


You can also do your research & find Pet Transporters flight Nannys on Facebook.


Kat's Pet Transport Service -- You can find her on Facebook, fast, reliable, friendly service with a 5 star rating 


www.uship.com is another place to set up transport.


Many times I need my Nursery for upcoming litters. 


Please make arrangements in advance, I will only hold kittens for 12 weeks anything beyond that there will be a $30 a week boarding fee, can food alone costs me $14.00 per week per kitten plus their kibble, litter,  maintenance.  


Have any questions please email me at Empirestatelynx@gmail.com  Cell # 607-381-0259 ask for Carol


If you want to purchase one of our Kittens please fill out the adoption application, this provides us with the information that is needed to place the right kitten to it's new home.


Pet only prices go on a spay neuter contract, they are to be altered by 6 months of age, we send out reminder emails one month in advance.


Breeders will also have their own contracts. 


Please read carefully: 

I have had many who seem to think they can back out on their Kitten just before they are ready to depart for their new homes.  I will no longer be transferring over deposits to another kitten at a later date, you take said kitten off my page & arrangements are made for transport it makes for a lot of stress on me trying to find an older kitten the right home.  You ask why, I say how do I know you won't do this with the next kitten, back out at the last minute.  All deposits are Non-Refundable. Remember you signed our contract. I will only make exceptions if you have a legit reason. If your not happy with color, ears, size, sex etc. or anything petty, no buyer's remorse!


Rare Colors:

Chocolate

Cinnamon

Lilac

Fawn

  • Cats with B/B genotype will be full-colored and will not display chocolate or cinnamon coloration. They cannot produce chocolate or cinnamon offspring and cannot transmit these chocolate or cinnamon variants to any of their offspring.
  • Cats with B/b genotype will be full-colored and are carriers of chocolate. They will transmit this chocolate variant to 50% of their offspring. Matings between two carriers of chocolate are predicted to produce 25% chocolate kittens.
  • Cats with B/bl genotype will be full-colored and are carriers of cinnamon. They will transmit this cinnamon variant to 50% of their offspring. Matings between two carriers of cinnamon are predicted to produce 25% cinnamon kittens.
  • Cats with b/b genotype will be chocolate and will transmit this chocolate variant to all of their offspring.
  • Cats with b/bl genotype will be chocolate and are carriers of cinnamon. They will transmit this cinnamon variant to 50% of their offspring. Matings between two carriers of cinnamon are predicted to produce 25% cinnamon kittens.
  • Cats with bl/bl genotype will be cinnamon and will transmit this cinnamon variant to all of their offspring.


Breeder's:

Please fill out my adoption application

Kittens will be placed only under my approval

I sell kittens within the US 

However I will Consider Canada at extra expenses for Vetting

I'm no longer adding breeding prices, you can inquire

If your interested in rights contact me at    Empirestatelynx@gmail.com or call 607-381-0259 Ask for Carol

Some of my programs I have been working on for six years, hence why prices maybe higher, rare colors & tail mutation

I only breed cats with the Novel tail variant which is still unknown, on DNA testing it will say "most likely to have a long tail" rest assure it is not

When I sell a breeder said cat goes on a strict contract, NO sub-leasing period, I sell this cat to you, not for the public to use and benefit off my hard work, remember you signed our contract.

I have been working with a tail variant that is still unknown "Novel tail variant" since 2016 with NO spinal issues, incontinence, deformities or spinal bifida. Empire State Lynx is a part of the Highlander genome project.  The cats that participated are named as follows:   NY City Slicker  (Grace & Gunner off spring),  Empirestatelynx Gunner,  Graceland of Empirestatelynx, Fabio.

Health implications: (This is why I do NOT use this tail variant)


Cats with this variant may also display “Manx Syndrome,” which is a term used to describe a range of disorders that affect the development of the spine and spinal cord. The various forms of this syndrome can prevent normal behaviors, induce incontinence, cause partial paralysis, and lead to painful infections. As all tested cats with this variant are seen to carry only one copy, it is presumed if two copies of the Short tail Manx mutation are inherited that it will cause early fetal death and resorption. Two cats mated together which have the Short tail Manx variant will have smaller litter sizes and some normal tailed cats may be produced.

Glossary 
  • Rumpy:  Cats that have no tail at all, though a tuft of hair where the tail would have grown is not uncommon.
 
  • Riser / Rumpy Riser:  Cats that have a bump of cartilage under the fur.  When the cat is happy or their rumps are 
petted, this bump will often rise. 


  • Stumpy:  Cats that are born with a partial tail of vestigial, fused vertebrae, usually around an inch in length.

  • Stubby: Shorty, or Short-tailed: A Manx type with a short tail of non fused bones, up to about half an average cat tail.  Aside from their length, these tails operate and move exactly like a regular tail.

  • Longie or Tailie: Manx type with a half to normal length tail.
