Frequently Asked Questions
How much are your kittens?
Each kitten is unique and price depends on a few factors like coat color, coat type, breed, age, etc. The more RARE the color, the higher the price; Black Silver shaded (ns11, 12, 25), Black Golden Shaded (ny11, 12, 25), Blue Golden shaded (ay11, 12, 25), etc.
What breed kittens are available at our cattery?
When are kittens available for pickup?
Our kittens usually go home around 13-15 weeks. Like children, each kitten is developing at their own pace. We do not release kittens earlier than 13 weeks at any time as the first 3 months are crucial to their development, forming habits, socialization, etc. Kittens that are separated too early can develop unhealthy habits, become socially awkward/scared or get sick easily as their immune system has not fully developed yet. First round of vaccinations is at 8-10 weeks. Second round is at 12-14 weeks. After that there must be at least a 2-week quarantine where we watch for allergic and inadvertent reactions to vaccinations.
How can I reserve a kitten?
All kittens will be listed online when they are ready to be reserved under the following categories:
-Available (available to purchase/be reserved)
-Not Availalbe (someone has placed a deposit and signed a contract for this kitten)
-Cattery Observation (we are observing this kitten to see if he/she will stay with us for our future breeding program, may become available at a later date)
In order to reserve a kitten, please fill out the kitten application located on the Homepage to tell us more about you, then we will send you a contract to sign for the kitten of your choice and the last step is to pay the 30% deposit.
***KITTENS ARE NOT CONSIDERED RESERVED, UNTIL THE DEPOSIT IS PAID AND CONTRACT IS SIGNED***
Can we deliver/ship?
Yes! Delivery is available to any US state via the following options:
Is there a deposit?
Yes, the deposit is 30% of the kitten price. Deposits are non-refundable with the only exception if the breeder refuses the sale. Deposit payments can be made via Zelle, PayPal, Wire, Venmo, CashApp and CC (+ cc fee).
What litter do we use/recommend?
We regularly use and recomment the Purina Tidy Cats LightWeight Free & Clean Unscented Dust Free Clumping Litter. It can be purchase at most major retailers like Petco, Walmart, Target & PetsMart.
What litter boxes do we use/recomment?
Our cats are accustomed to both open and top closed litter boxed. They do prefer enclosed boxes and by far the favorit is the: IRIS Top Entry Cat Litter Box available on amazon.
How often should you bathe a cat?
Cats are self-cleaning animals and unless they go outside, they will take care of their own grooming (with the exception of nail trim). We suggest a periodic bath, but no more then once a quarter. Nails should be trimmed about every 2-3 weeks.
Do you recommend that we spay/neuter our cat?
Absolutely. This is required by our contract and must be done before the kittens 7th birthday. Overpopulation is a problem and we expect our future kitten owners to take that seriously! Please download the attached brochure for more information and benefits.
Are your cats registered? Can we purchase "without paperwork"?
Of course all of our breeding cats are TICA (The International Cat Association) and/or WCF (World Cat Federation) registered as purebred British Shorthair and Scottish Fold/Straight. Pedigrees are kept on file and are available to be viewed upon request.
Where do your cats live?
All of our cats and kittens live indoors. They go out for vet vsits and grooming appointments in a carrier, but they prefer to live inside :)
What DRY food do we recommend?
We are constantly on the search for great, grain free dry food. We currently use Acana, Orajen, Open Farms and Farmina Cat food. Some foods are too concentrated, so we often use half half portions.
What CANNED food do we recommend?
What is the proper meal portion?
Please use all foods as instructed by the manual label. Each food contains a different proportion of nutrients and is best used when used as directed by the manufacturer for the weight/size/age of the pet.
Do you charge Sales Tax?
-If you come to pick up your kitten at our cattery, then YES! In compliance with state regulations, we must charge sales tax on all purchases.
