MORE ABOUT US:
My love for Persian cats began while I was volunteering at the local shelter in Torrance Ca. I was 13 years old. I became enamored with the Persians and their laidback personalities over the years and this began my journey. However, so many had serious breathing problems due to the breeding preference years ago. I felt there would be less Persians in shelters, if the problem was addressed with the breeding.(I was obviously not the only one as thankfully the open expression became popular.)
I became friends with one of the Persian rescuers and started helping her show with CFA for several years. My first kitten was a male cameo and sadly learned all about FIP. 2 years later, I bought a stunning white coppered eyed girl, from an International show in Los Angeles CA. Next I bought a stunning black smoke male and started my first cattery named Gemini Gems and my very first 2 kittens were named Opal and Annie. I showed my first to just championship but sadly my son was allergic and after only 2 liters, my hobby was set aside.
When that same son graduated from High School and was off to boot camp USMC,
I started rebuilding my cattery ... Buying a female show cat and knew it was the restart. Sadly my old cattery name was not available. So - I decided to use the names from my very first kitten from so many years earlier. 'OpalAnnies' of California.
When we relocated to Arizona 10 years ago
Then our daughter LaRey (and family including my 3 awesome grand daughters) decided to join the team so we now have 2 western Arizona locations.
Hence the name change to Opal Reys. Still working on switching everything over. My daughter is an amazing photographer and quickly added animals to her portfolio.
What's NEW..... 2020 We have decided to add a clothing, accessory line & toys!!
We got overwhelming response from our hats last year and bows this year, we're going to make them to sell. Be on the lookout for the new line this fall.
