Melodygarden American Shorthairs

CFA Cattery of Distinction

Prince -

Prince is a handsome 2-yo silver mackerel tabby neutered American Shorthair with green eyes.

He was a show cat but decided that it was not for him and that he would rather be home managing his staff. He is sweet and affectionate and prefers to sit next to you rather than on a lap. He loves to play with wand toys or toys on a string. He gets along well with other cats and could be a great companion for another cat. He is not used to dogs and may not adapt quickly. His ideal home is with a single woman or couple who he can bond with and make his servants. Prince is up to date on vaccinations and eats dry cat food.

Rocky -

Rocky is a gorgeous 6 year old neutered male shaded silver champion American Shorthair cat. He is CFA registered, but decided that the shows just weren’t for him.

Rocky can be a little timid initially so ideally he is looking for a quiet new home where he won’t need to share his humans with other pets. Rocky has not had experience with small children but might do well with a quiet older child.

Rocky is food-motivated and easily trained. He is currently eating a moderately priced special dry-food diet available at pet stores without a prescription.

He is up to date on vaccinations.

coming home to an empty house
to coming home."

than to be welcomed by a cat."

Here are some of the kittens we have recently placed with owners.

Nutmeg and Eggnog

Nutmeg and Eggnog are shaded cameo boys (born 9/11/2021) who have found a forever home.  Nutmeg is a little darker than Eggnog.  Both guys are confident and rambunctious (they are boys after all!) but love to cuddle in the evenings.   They are now enjoying an active family with children and dogs.



Shaded Cameo and White Male, Shaded Cameo Females

Shaded Cameo and White male ("Camo")

Shaded Cameo Female ("Ginger")

Shaded Cameo Female ("Elberta")


Bess is an outgoing spayed silver ticked tabby (born 5/10/2015) who has found a home that she can preside over. 


Dahlia and Sage

Dahlia, the kitten on the left, was born August 6, 2016. She is a silver ticked tabby and white female kitten. She likes to stay out of trouble and is a sweet quiet pet in her new home.

Sage, her brother, on the right, is a mischevious little scamp who pokes his nose into absolutely everything. He is now enjoying life in a new home as well.


Rose is a spayed 4 year old retired champion show cat. She has found a new home where she will be a Queen with her own family. She loves playing and people. She is well mannered using litterboxes and scratching posts reliably and gets along with other cats.


She is a lovely and very rare shaded silver tortoiseshell color (fewer than 10 currently registered).

if we happen to be chosen to be owned by a cat."
