● Kittens can go to their new homes at 12-14 wks of age.
● Kitten will be FIV/FELV negative (all our adults are)
● Parents are echocardiogram clear of HCM (starting at
1-2 yrs of age - meaning they are clear of HCM at the
time of the ultrasound - there is no guarantee that they
won't come down with HCM in the future)
● Our kittens are raised in our bedrooms and get run of
the house just before they go home.
● Here is the
vaccine protocol we use and recommend.
PET KITTEN INQUIRIES
● We do not ship pet kittens, NO exceptions.
If you see a kitten on the site you like and want us to hold it
for you we require a $200 deposit. (Reason: we
have held kittens in the past and people purchased kittens elsewhere
and in the meantime we have turned homes away for that kitten).
We do not offer cattery tours. This is our home and our hobby.
When serious buyers come to look at kittens at approximately 12 wks of age and older they will have a chance to
meet us and the cats at that time.
● We do not keep a
future litter waiting list.
● We do not allow our kittens to be declawed or
let outdoors. Check the links below to find out why:
NOTE: We have the option to keep a kitten who
already has a deposit on it if we feel the kitten is
needed in our show/breeding program. While this doesn't
happen often sometimes we have to do this to keep a
certain pedigree or top show cat. Your deposit will
either be refunded or put towards the next available
kitten of your choice.
PICKING UP YOUR CAT OR KITTEN
● You must bring a carrier to take your
kitten home in.
● Your kitten will come with food to get you started.
We are currently feeding California Natural Chicken &
Rice Dry and Life's Abundance (see order link below). You will want to mix this with
the food you are going to feed so the kittens digestion
can get used of what you are feeding without stomach
Toys - your kitten will get a few of our cats favorites!
