Our Cattery

Bayouash Cattery is an American Shorthair Cat Boutique featuring only lovable, laidback “Cat-Fishin’” type cats, but, at the same time, they can chase a laser light with the “speed of a bullet”!! My cats are my joys! The breed is noted for once being a hard working American cat when they first appeared on the shores of the American, now mine live the life of ease. They can sip mint juleps or indulge in a pitcher of ice cold lemonade under shady Mimosa trees while waiting for an occasional mouse or so to scramble by! The hardest job my Southern Belles and Gentlemen have is winning at TICA/CFA Shows to make me proud, and they have! All my residents have acquired Championship-Supreme Grand Championship status in TICA.
