About Its Raining Mins Cattery

I got my first long-legged male Minuet for Christmas 2018 from my lifelong family friend and second mother. She was retiring and she gave me her last kitten. I had bred Ragdolls before Hurricane Katrina hit us and I missed the joy of having kittens around, so I decided to try this new and interesting breed. It has been challenging, learning about this breed and all the ups and downs, but I have absolutely fallen in love with these Minuets. They are adorable and so sweet and just the cutest little lovebugs ever.
