Catch the Dream Welcome To OhMyCats Cattery



Beginning November 18, 2013, I will be joining a very large number of breeders across the U.S. in no longer shipping pets. Due to a change in Department of Agriculture regulations for pet breeders that the USDA itself has interpreted in contradictory ways, it is impossible for most persons who sell pets to know whether it is legal to ship a pet that the buyer has not seen in person. Violations of this rule carry severe penalties. For our safety, ALL sales must take place face to face. This ruling is going to seriously curtail the choice of those wishing to buy the pet of their choice unless you are willing to travel to your breeder of choice regardless of distance. As written this will also affect service animals being made available to those in need. While we do understand the need to stop those who don't properly care for their animals, and who knowingly sell sick kittens and puppies, we already have existing state and federal laws for those issues. If you would like to help us fight this bad choice of regulation policy, please contact me or your breeder of choice to see what you can do to help. It is YOUR right to be able to buy a cat or kitten from whoever you choose and to pick it up personally or have your cat or kitten shipped to you or to meet your breeder at a mutually agreed upon place to save you travel and expense. However, you only have that right if it remains OUR right to offer those choices.

Stop P.U.P.S! Contact your Representative and Senator at this link. It is quick and simple...Do it today to save your right to breed and raise pets. Then go to SAOVA and join the growing list of names against P.U.P.S! Make Your Voice Be HEARD!


November 16, 2009 HSUS CEO, Wayne Pacelle, made the suggestion: ...every "responsible breeder" is a "puppy miller", every "family farmer" is a "factory farmer" and every "responsible hunter" is a "poacher". This is what HSUS really thinks about anyone involved with animals! Don't donate and don't believe them when HSUS says they protect animals.

Welcome to our home and feline family on the Internet. I am Pat Harbert and together with my husband, Jim Harbert, we have the perfect life with our kitties and other family members.

We have always loved animals, and felt our family was not complete without our pets. When our children grew up and moved away to start their own lives and family, (To date, Ten grandchildren and four and one half great grandchildren) we became more interested in increasing our feline family.

We acquired our first Bengal, when our beloved blue rescue male joined the Rainbow Bridge. We had never seen or heard of a Bengal, and our meeting was pure chance. A neighbor or ours advertised her at age 3 months. She had been raising Manx and this baby came to her in a trade. It was love at first sight. We picked her for beauty and gentleness, not realizing we had just caught the circus ring! When we located a male for Civie Cat, we were introduced to TIBCS, and again by chance our education continued. Ocielot, a charcoal spotted male, from Anita Lawless and was our foundation male. Later we added Mon Cher . These two created our best friend, and loyal companion known as CH Abben Buddy Love. (Best Seal Mink Marble in the SC Region, 1998-99). He is the Peacekeeper with our cats, has worked as a Therapy Cat, and still shows in Alter Class once a year. In 2007 he received two finals at his annual outing. Buddy Love showed in Alter Class until he was 12 years old. In 2007 he received two finals at his annual outing. In 2008 he was 9th best Alter at the annual On Safari. Buddy Love set the goals we strive for at OhMy:


A short time after we acquired the Bengals, another breed, the Abyssinian came into our life. A friend who had purchased one of our kittens told us about some Abys that were being housed in a small chicken coup. They were neglected, undernourished, and in much need of love and attention. This began our life with the Abyssinians. Pywakit and Serendipity proved to have the excellent traits of their breed. It is apparent from their affectionate personalities and regal stance they know they are from Royalty. When they wrap their arms around your neck and kiss you on the neck or cheeks, give up and take it while you have the chance. If you try to have quality time on your terms, you may just get a haughty stare in return. Don?t try to hold one if it wants down, it can turn 360 degrees inside its skin before you can blink.

People have asked us why we have two breeds, and our reply is always that we love them both so much we couldn?t chose, so we just kept them both. The Bengal is always your best friend and confidant with no limits to their loyalty, while the Abyssinian, is always there to remind you that you're a mere human in the presence of royalty, a very humbling experience. Our Cattery is registered both CFA and TICA. Our Abyssinians include Regional Winning Supreme Grand Champions.

Which do I like the best? Bengals or Abys? Whoever I am holding at the moment!

Please take some time and visit our feline family. You will begin to understand what it is like to live with both loyalty and royalty. Catch the wonderful dream of our feline family!
