Daniel

Daniel Tornado (named after his parents) has stormed our house with personality! We are all very much in love with his bold, brave, curious, and affectionate personality. His energy is uncontainable and infectious and he is always amusing us. He has his own toy box and chooses his toys and even plays fetch with us. In the picture below is Daniel’a position in front of my computer letting me know I’m ignoring him so he’s not going to let me work until I give him attention.

 

We were excited about the process but had never worked with a breeder before and didn’t know what to expect. Regina is extremely thorough and on top of things. She is very particular about the details and follows the breed standard. You really are getting a beautiful and well tempered kitty. I was impressed when I went to pick up Daniel. These kittens are so well cared for! I echo the other reviews I read about the advice on the wet food. I went in prepared to have my vet suggest dry food only to find out that she wishes all her cat owners had their kitties were on wet food predominantly due to urinary tract issues. It was a big eye opener for me and I also adjusted and added additional water bowls through the house.

 

Thank you Regina and Southpaw for our newest furbaby and for the great experience!

Rena

I would like to say that my experience with Regina was great. She is very knowledgeable about these Toygers in every way and sent us home with suggestions on how to introduce our new baby into her new surroundings. The set up at the cattery is very spacious for the Toygers to roam around in with plenty of toys and entertainment for the cats. Regina keeps in touch with us and really cares about these cats. Our Rena girl is everything and more that a Toyger should be!

Harley Quinn

We are so happy to welcome Harley Quinn to our family.

 

Regina at the South Paw Cattery was a pleasure to work with. She was informative through every step of the process and kept us up to date with details and pictures on a regular basis.

 

Harley is a beautiful cat with all of the distinct colors and markings that we were looking for in a Toyger Cat.

 

When we arrived for the pickup and met Regina in person it was evident that she is a caring and professional breeder. We would highly recommend Regina and the South Paw Cattery to anyone looking to add a Toyger Cat to their family.

Lou Lou is our second Toyger from Regina and he is just as sweet as the first. When we got him home there was some hissing and growling going on with the other cats. In less than two weeks he charmed everyone and now they are all playing harmoniously. Toyger's are a wonderful breed. They love to be with people and are very vocal in the nicest way. Regina’s cattery is a beautiful home environment, and she cares deeply for each kitten. I know the good start these kittens have result in calm sweet personalities. This shows in both my Toygers' and Regina is the only breeder I would choose.

Choupette 

 

Toygers are a wonderful breed of cat and Regina gives them a perfect setting to spend the first 10 weeks of life. Seeing the nursery and meeting the other cats at Southpaw was a pleasure and I knew my kitten was coming from a loving home. Choupette ( “sweetie” in French) is smart, friendly and beautiful. Regina gave us some great information about acclimating him into our home with the other cats and for his care. He is getting very settled now and is so playful!, Regina is a great find for anyone wanting a Toyger!”

Update 1/2020:  "I don't think I have ever met a cat with his type of personality - he is really wonderful!"

Griffin 

Griffin is doing great, has acclimated extremely well, the interaction between him and Beanie (our older cat) has been wonderful. Could not have asked for a better kitten, his character is very unique, love his demeanor, the way he has bonded to us is very special. He is growing fast, is developing some nice muscles, his leaping ability is amazing.

Jeff Clapper

 

We are so in love with little Griffin!  He is turning out to be a gorgeous cat with his own special personality!  He is growing right before our eyes – seems a little bigger every day.  He LOVES to play.  He gets along well with Beanie, and sometimes Meowy, but no fights yet between them.  Jeff bought him one of those cat towers with places to sleep and climb and he just loves it – is always running and jumping on it – keeps us entertained!  We are grateful to you for our beautiful kitten – we are very happy with him!

George

 

George is a great fit with us and we love him! He is absolutely gorgeous and his personality is hilarious.

 

You were a joy to work with and made the process of adding a member to our family go smoothly. I loved the weekly pictures and seeing all the kittens grow and having you answer all our questions. I was worried about the air travel and kitten pick up but you made that very easy also. You have a family approach that gives the kittens such a great start and they have wonderful personalities as a result.

Hemsworth

First and foremost, to catch everyone's attention, my veterinarian who's been voted#1 in Asheville a couple of times now, said the ratio between wet and dry foods is spot on... especially where males are concerned to avoid any possible urinary tract issues down the road. He's more concerned about that than tarter on the teeth when using dry as the primary source (vs. wet as the primary source). He is very impressed with Regina! 

 

My sincere high praise and recommendations to Regina and SouthPaw Toygers Cattery.

Hemsworth is so very affectionate, kissing and purring all the time and wants to keep me in sight at all times. Enjoys snuggling in for the night. He is actually my Australian Shepherd's (Roxy) Christmas gift who's been lonely since our Persian passed away from natural causes. They are already best of friends! 

Trust me when I say the Toyger is everything they say they are and so much more!

Nacho​

"Nacho is doing great, adjusted to the kids and dogs so well! 

 

Nacho is our first family cat and boy is he darling! Regina was extremely committed to proving the best service from taking care of him to keeping us updated throughout the whole process. Her love for these animals is infectious and we are so glad to have worked with her. 

 

Nacho is settled here in Charlotte, NC and loves to play with our two dogs and is so gentle around our 4 and 2 year old children. He enjoys to be snuggled up to us right after a big meal and we love the cuddles. 

 

I highly recommend Regina, her Cattery and thus breed of cat to everyone!"

Tiger 

"Our little Tiger has brought us so much joy since we brought her to her new home in Montana a few weeks ago! She is so sweet and playful…and she absolutely loves her one-year-old big sister/cat, Nellie. They play together constantly until they get completely exhausted and then they curl up together for frequent cat naps!! Regina and Guy were delightful to work with; they kept us updated weekly with information and photos. It was so nice to finally meet them and see the cattery, which is spacious and spotless. It was so heartwarming to see how much they love what they do and how attached they get to the kittens. Regina had such a hard time saying goodbye to Tiger and checked on her frequently the first few days to make sure she was adjusting well. The experience with them could not have gone more smoothly and we are so happy with our newest family member."

Savanna

"Savanna has been such a wonderful addition to our Valdosta, GA home.  She arrived just a month ago, on July 16, 2021.  Regina was nothing but wonderful to deal with during our search for a new kitten.  We were unfamiliar with Toygers, but were very interested in this unique breed, based upon our research.  We had many questions over several months and Regina took the time to entertain all my phone and email inquiries.  Savanna is everything and more than we could have expected.  She is strikingly beautiful as you can see, with perfect markings and coat!  Her personality is inquisitive, loving, and of course she has boundless energy.  She is a great companion to our nine-month-old Abyssinian, Sebastian."

Tsunami

"I saw on social media the Toyger breed and immediately started asking questions. Fell in love with the breed started researching legitimate breeders because a lot of folks were getting scammed sending monies and never getting a kitten. 

 

Researched Tica.org and found a registered breeder in NC April 2021 while vacationing in SC. Was skeptical at first but sent my deposit to be put on a waiting list, immediately received a receipt from Regina. Figuring I would have to wait till 2022, surprisingly received a call in May 2021 asking if I was still interested in receiving one or going back on list.

 

Jumped on my opportunity and since that day I received weekly pictures and updates. 

On July 24th was able to travel 10 hrs. to pick up my kitten. Regina’s Cattery is very clean and well kept.

Her adult cats are well cared for and happy. Named our girl "Tsunami"

She is well socialized, litter trained, and eating well thanks to Regina. We have not had any difficulty at all with Tsunami.  Would recommend this fantastic breeder to anyone who wants a beautiful healthy registered kitten. She and her kittens are amazing."

Rajah 

"I have had Rajah 2 weeks now and he has acclimated extremely well and all I can attribute that to is Regina doing an excellent job Socializing him. Regina was wonderful to work with and you can tell she loves her cats and Kittens. She kept me updated every week. Her Cattery was very clean and spacious. This kitten (Rajah) is so playful and very loving. He loves to cuddle and play with his toys! Last and by far not least he and my older cat were playing together and sleeping on the cat tree together within 4 days!! This has been the easiest transition ever! I highly recommend Regina and her Cattery!"

"We absolutely love our Luciana. From the first time I messaged with Regina, we knew we were going to receive a beautiful, friendly kitten who was born and raised in a loving home. She sent pictures each week so we could watch our new baby grow until she could come to her forever home. We had the best experience with Regina and would definitely call her if we were to add another one of her babies to our home or refer her to someone wanting a beautiful, friendly Toyger. Thank you so much! "

Thank You So Very Much for Your Amazing Hard Work with Growing Our Kitties.

 

Everyday after We Received the Kittens; when I am Feeding them, Touching them, Playing with them, I am Constantly Thinking about You and Guy for Your Wonderful Care.

 

I Understand How Hard It Was for You to Bring these Beautiful Creatures to Life Giving Them the Best Care than Make the Sacrifice to Let Them Go.

 

I am so grateful to Guy for His Willingness to Place these Little Souls In Our Hands.

 

We are Very Happy with Your Cattery and Will Recommend to All Whom Ask.

Monty  

“I absolutely adore Monty- he's playful, smart, cuddly, curious, and such a looker!  Best of all, I had no trouble integrating him with my 3 other cats.  With his sweet personality, he gets along with everyone!  Regina is a dream to work with and made the entire process so easy for me.  After visiting her extremely clean and well set up Cattery, I had no doubt that she loves every kitten, takes amazing care of them, and works hard to place them in good homes.  She sent me regular updates, pictures, and videos of my kitten right up until I could pick him up.  I could not be happier with Regina, Southpaw Cattery, and my Monty!"

Stormy

"I discovered the Toyger breed of cats fairly recently, when I purchased a Time magazine on cats.  I was instantly enthralled with them, and when I googled breeders I was shocked to find one near me in North Carolina!!!  So my husband and I made arrangements to go and visit the cattery.  

Regina was very receptive and professional in sharing information on the cats and the breed.  My husband and I left a deposit for a kitten on our first visit to the cattery.  We now have that kitten, and he is just wonderful!!!  Regina was very professional in all of our dealings with her, and was concerned about the kitten’s well being after he left the cattery with us as well!  We couldn’t be happier with our Toyger, and with Regina and Southpaw Toygers as well!"

Communication has been wonderful throughout this adventure and was given lots of information and tips on how to care for our Mahli and make the transition easier.

When meeting Regina and her fur-family in person, I was super impressed about the cleanliness, love and care that goes into housing her fur-family and making sure they are happy and comfortable.

All of the cats are absolutely gorgeous, sweet, gentle with loving personalities.

Mahli loves cuddling and being held, is so sweet and loving but she's also feisty and full of spunk.

I know we will be very happy together."

"When I began to research Toygers and I found SouthPaw Toygers I fell in love with Thunder. He is the most beautiful cat I have ever seen and I am so proud to have one of his kittens. AnnaKat has a great personality. She is stubborn, feisty, playful, interested in everything, and very loving. She has brought much joy to our home."
