Pet-quality kittens are $1500. Pet- quality means that kittens are not being purchased to breed or to show. The price includes a $200 non-refundable deposit to hold your kitten until pick-up time. It also includes your kitten's first two rounds of vaccinations, dewormings, vet checks, microchipping, and a one year health guarantee against genetic diseases. All kittens being sold as pet quality will go to their new homes on a spay/neuter contract. Our prices are non-negotiable.
Kittens who have the potential for show and or breeding will start out at $3,400 depending on type and color. A non-refundable deposit of $400 is required to hold a kitten for show and or breeding. Buyers with interest in showing/breeding will be given preference to kitten choice.
Breeding rights will only be offered to approved, well established catteries. Veterinarian references are required and you must be in good standing with TICA or your association.
We traditionally have a waitlist for our kittens however, we do not require a deposit to be added to the waitlist. When kittens are born, individuals on the waitlist will be notified and when kittens are between 3-4 weeks of age, kittens can be reserved by placing a non-refundable deposit of $200 on the kitten of their choice. Kittens can be placed on a 24 hour hold until the deposit is received. If 24 hours have passed and there has been no contact, or deposit made, we will assume the kitten is no longer wanted and we will offer that kitten to the next person on our waiting list. Deposits can be made via Venmo, CashApp or Zelle. The remaining balance is due in cash upon pick up. Deposits can be transferred to future litters but are not refundable. The order of choosing a kitten is determined by a customer's place on the waitlist. Videos and pictures are provided to those on the waitlist so kittens' personalities, traits and characteristics can be viewed thus making it easier to choose your kitten.
What happens after your kitten has been reserved?
A screenshot showing the deposit has been received will be sent to you via text message. Picture and/or video updates are sent every weekend starting after your kitten has been reserved until pick up day. If an update has not been sent by Saturday, then an update will be sent on Sunday. If extra time allows, updates will be sent during the week but as we are a very busy household, updates are not always possible during the week.
We understand that a family or individual may want to come "visit their kitten in person", however, we are considered a "closed cattery". We do not allow visitors until kittens are picked up. The less visitors we have, the more likely it is that kittens go home healthy. It is our priority to protect all of our cats and kittens from unwanted diseases or sicknesses.
The safety and privacy of my family is also a concern. Because we raise all of our kittens in our home, it is not always feasible to have guests visit the kittens. While we would love to be able to say "yes" to home visits, we ask that you please remember this is our home and an open door policy isn't in the best interest for my family or our cats and kittens.
The purpose of the updates is so that new families can watch their kitten grow and progress through videos and pictures until pick up day. We greatly appreciate your understanding as we know this is an extremely exciting event for you!
Your kitten will go home with:
What should you do to prepare for your kittens arrival?
1. Make a vet appointment for your kitten within 72 hours of the pick up date. Your kitten will just need a basic veterinary exam (no vaccines or deworming); but rather just a "check" by your veterinarian confirming you did receive a healthy kitten.
2. Prepare a small room (bathroom, laundry room) specifically for your kitten to stay in for a few days until you have it checked out by your veterinarian. This is especially necessary if you have other animals in the house. It is also a good idea to use a room like this to help your kitten acclimate to your home the first few days.
3. The room should have fresh food, water a litter box, toys, etc.
- Leave the kitten in this room at night and for several intermittent hours during the day. This will help litter train the kitten for your home.
4 .Purchase Iam's Proactive Health Healthy Kitten Food. It is hard food in a purple bag. Your kittens should have this food left out 24/7. You may also give soft food of the same brand 1 to 2 times per day. If the kitten has loose stools, reduce the amount of wet food.
5. Your new kitten will need scratch pads, possibly a cat tree, toys, treats, and anything else you'd like to get to spoil your new baby! See below for suggestions on things to buy!
We use Iam's Proactive Health Healthy Kitten food. Leave dry kibble out for your kitten 24/7. We suggest feeding this food until your kitten is at least one year old.
You can supplement their moisture intake by offering wet kitten food in small portions up to three times per day. Too much moisture can cause diarrhea. If this happens, give less wet food.
We use Tidy Cat Clumping Cat Litter. The clumping litter keeps the dust to a minimum. All. of our kittens go home litter box trained with this litter. If you want to swtich, we recommend phasing it out slowly.
Kittens enjoy lots of different types of toys and what your kitten may enjoy may be different from the next kitten. We do recommend little springs, cat toys with feathers on the end and little balls they can chase. These items always seem to be a hit with kittens!
Keeping several scratch pads available for your kitten to use is very important! Scratch pads help to sharpen and trim nails, relieve stress and is a natural behavior for cats and kittens. Keep scratch pads by high scratch areas like sofas and chairs. This will help keep your kitten from scratching your furniture.
It's a natural instinct for kittens to want to climb and be up high. Cat trees are fun for kittens! We suggest cat trees that have scratch poles and small cubby holes for kittens to sleep in.
Cat are naturally very good at keeping themselves clean, so we do not recommend bathing often unless necessary. We do suggest daily or weekly brushing, though. This can help with shedding. They DO shed, contrary to what some people may say. Any normal cat brush will work as long as it is combing the fur and not cutting it.
