The flowers are springing up, the season of singing birds has come...
Song of Solomon 2:12
Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit our site.
My name is Lori McCorkle and I live in Brandon Florida along with my two wonderful parents. Owning and breeding gorgeous Persian cats has long been a dream of mine. This season in my life seemed like the right time to take on this exciting dream. I had been breeding dogs my entire adult life, initially training and showing German Shepherds and then, as I got older, I became smitten with the sweet little Chihuahuas. In 2014, since most of our female Chihuahuas were getting older and ready to retire from breeding, I had an epiphany! A Purr Epiphany! Persian Kittens.
I have owned and loved many cats throughout the years. Some were our family's and some were strays. Some were "barn cats" , some were a full box of abandoned kittens , then there is the occasional rescued tabby, the abandoned pregnant mama kitty and so on. However, I had always dreamed of owning a Persian. So dignified and elegant, soft, purring blankets of fluff, draped across the furniture like an additional ornamentation to the décor. And now, having this new kitty family and bonding with my four precious fur-babies has been such a blessing and a delight! I truly believe God has had His hand in this. I prayed about it and it wasn't long before everything just fell into place. After finding wonderful new homes for several of our Chihuahuas, I began my search for Persians. I found a woman who was downsizing her Persian group and I was able to acquire my cats from her. She shared information and pictures of the kittens that her cats have produced and they are just stunning. All the cats are well-bred, healthy, well mannered and clean (only use the litter box...even my boy!) They are all friendly and get along well with each other. We just couldn't be happier.
And now for a little bit about me. I come from a close loving family and have 2 grown children and two beautiful grandsons. My mother and father have been together for over 55 years and there are four of us kids. Raised in a loving Christian home, we were taught to have manners, deal honestly, work hard and show respect. All of us kids had pets of every kind growing up. Moving from south Florida to Brandon when I was 12 years old, we lived in a quiet neighborhood right behind a dairy farm. We spent our days riding horses and climbing trees. We had dogs, rabbits, cats, snakes, hamsters, gerbils, parakeets and finches, (just to name a few). Beginning with my first litter of bunnies when I was 12 years old I was bitten by the breeding bug and throughout the years I have experienced the love, beauty and excitement of welcoming many furry and feathered little babies into the world. With 40 plus years of breeding animals I have acquired a lot of useful experience. Family and friends call me when they have an animal related question. My neighbors call me to pet sit while they are out of town or need their dog's nails trimmed. I am always grateful and give God all the praise and glory for every wonderful thing He has given me. Thank you again for visiting today. You can read more about our baby's parents on the Moms and Dad page. Wishing you all the best, Lori
