Ascent Larry AKA Kimber
I have to admit, when I received Kimber's documentation, I was a bit nervous.... haha! Her registered name was "Larry" but I also found comfort.
You see, I lost my dad a few years ago and always discussed big decisions with him and really missed that in this decision to start a cattery. But, when I saw her name, I had to laugh, because Larry was my dad's name and I knew everything would be alright and that he was with us every step of the way.
Kimber is retired but was our founding Queen and blessed us with some very beautiful kittens. MacLan's My Girl carries on her line in our cattery.
Kimber retired in 2020 at two years old but remains in our home as our personal pet.
Kimber has clear genetic testing and echocardiogram. Copies provided to approved applicants upon request.
Ascent Quana AKA Blakely
Blakely was the second Queen we added to our cattery. We loved working with her breeder so much when we imported our founding king and queen that there was no hesitation to return to her.
Blakely is our personal favorite color and has beautiful type to her. The white patch on her chest is not acceptable breed standard which we learned along the way. Blakely retired in 2020 at two years old but her line is carried on by Maclan's Yechiel AKA Ya-Ya.
Blakely is now retired and remains in our home as our personal pet.
Blakely has clear genetic testing as well as echocardiogram. Copies provided upon request of approved applicants.
Ascent Vanessa AKA Aspen
Aspen, meaning fear is not to be feared, but rather recognized as the opportunity to embrace our shadow selves and grow, like the Aspen trees. Aspen gives us protection to master our fears, to truly know yourself and your capabilities. It teaches us how far we can bend without breaking.
Aspen was our third Queen and helped us with our goal of producing pale silver. Aspen had a beautiful, loyal personality to her.
She is now retired and living her best life with our new friend, Kim. Aspen was not going to be happy staying in a multi-cat home so we felt it was best for her to allow her a home where she can be the spoiled princess she is. Thank you Kim for loving her so good!
Aspen has clear genetic testing and echocardiogram. Copies provided to approved applicants upon request.
MacLan's Yechiel AKA Ya-Ya
Yechiel, meaning "God Lives" is one of our home-grown girls. Ya-Ya was our very FIRST "keeper girl" from our cattery.
Ya-Ya was born in January 2020, from a beautiful pairing between King Pierce and Blakely.
Ya-Ya is a wonderful representation of the breed, boasting that fun loving character we all love, nice size, lush coat and beautiful lines.
Ya-Ya is genetically clear, echocardiogram and hip screening. Copies provided upon request of approved applicants.
Agape, meaning "unconditional love of God". This girl definitely made me search for just the right name!
Before her eyes ever opened, I would sit in the floor to watch the babies and she would smell my scent and crawl out every single time! Agape is my absolute best girl and favorite cat I have worked with.
She was born April 2020 and will retire soon. She is the mother of the most beautiful kittens! She will likely be a fixture here at MacLan's because we would miss all her daily love.
Agape is genetically clear, second generation under our roof of clear echocardiogram and hip screening. Copies provided upon request to approved applicants.
MacLan's My Girl AKA Mygi
My Girl is the daughter of Kimber and Shaw. I am so blessed to have her! I had chosen a kitten in Kimber's previous litter to keep for our breeding program and she tragically died. Fast forward to Kimber's final litter in June 2020, and she gifts me this precious little poly girl.... so we named her "My Girl" because Kimber finally gave me, my girl.
My Girl is our absolute best mother and loves her children with a fierce passion, making them such confident kittens. She is one of our larger girls and has the plushest coat!
My Girl will retire in the near future and I look forward to raising one of her daughters to carry on her legacy.
Ascent Laura's Hosanna
Who doesn't love a classic look?
We wanted to bring back some of that classic Maine Coon look and hope to do that with Hosanna! She is black/brown in color and very well balanced in her features. She is an absolute snuggle bug and anytime we sit down, she is in the lap!
I hope to work with her more in early 2023.
Hosanna is genetically clear, and has passed her echocardiogram. She will have hip screening completed soon.
MacLan's Ambient AKA Ambi
Ambi is the daughter of my favorite Queen, Agape. I can't express my excitement the night she and her sister, Lumi were born. I had worked on producing pale silvers of their kind for a couple of years and my work had finally come to fruition. Color and pattern are really not important factors, last when compared to health, standard and temperament but this was still very exciting!
Ambi was born in 2021 and will hopefully have her first litter of kittens late 2022.
Ambi is genetically cleared (by parentage), echocardiograms and preliminary hip screening. Copies provided to approved applicants by request.
MacLan's Illuminate AKA Lumi
Lumi is the daughter of my favorite Queen, Agape. I can't express my excitement the night she and her sister, Ambi were born. I had worked on producing pale silvers of their kind for a couple of years and my work had finally come to fruition.
