FAQ

How much are your kittens? Cost for a kitten is $1250. This price includes spay/neuter, health guarantee, up to date health checks/immunizations/dewormer, micro-chipping, pedigree copy, registration, care package. and most importantly “A lifetime of support from us” (We will always be available to  answer any concerns or questions you have over your cats lifetime). We also offer a $250 discount on second cat if you buy two. Individuals that bought a kitten from us in past will always receive a $150 discount.
Why are your kittens priced for the above amount? I think it's safe to say that most of us are not rich, and we all appreciate a good deal. Why not? Blowing money unnecessarily is just a waste, and most of us enjoy finding a bargain even if we can afford to spend more. When shopping for cars, electronics, furniture or even a pet, frugal living is the way of the wise these days. So, why the big deal about shopping around when looking for a kitten? The price that you pay for a healthy well-bred kitten is minimal compared to the cost of raising, owning and veterinarian costs for the life of a cat that's ill-bred and sickly. Ever heard the saying, "You get what you pay for"? Yeah, well, the pet industry is one place you won't find a better example of the prudence of that advice. Quality in the breeding world can range anywhere from absolute crap to jaw-dropping fantastic - and everywhere in between. And although it may not always be this way, in most cases you're going to get exactly what you pay for. Quality has never been cheap and buying a quality kitten defiantly is not! You are going to have to expect to pay more than just a few hundred dollars to buy from a responsible breeder. There are several factors that go into the price of buying a kitten from a good breeder. The ever-increasing price of top notch veterinary care is one of the main reasons, many breeders spend thousands upon thousands each year at the vets. Not to mention the money that goes into a breeders breeding stock, high quality diets, pre-natal exams, pregnancy x-rays, supplements, emergency veterinary care, c-sections, assisted feeding when complications arise, vaccinations for adults and the kittens, health/genetic testing, routine blood-work, veterinary exams/health checks for each kitty. If you can imagine this is just the short list of costs, but it gives you an idea! So What is a breeder's time worth? Breeders spend MANY hours per month caring for their cats and kittens. These hours cannot be scheduled around other obligations; other obligations must be scheduled around your animals. Having a litter of kittens for any breeder pretty much takes a considerable chunk of time and independence from your life. A good breeder will carefully screen and interview all potential buyers to ensure that their kittens get placed in only the best homes. They will also offer support to the kittens new family to make sure that they are properly prepared to care for the kitten, and they will stay available to help out any purchasers in need, even if it means accepting the kitten back into their home if problems arise.   It has been said that exceptional quality is not expensive, It's PRICELESS! Exceptional Quality Is Not Expensive, It's Priceless! A TRUE BREEDER is not in it for financial gain, puts their WHOLE HEART into and risking it being hurt.... but at the same time...could not see their life without it all, the good, the bad, and the beautiful... IT IS WORTH EVERY MINUTE OF IT! A Breeder will be challenged...A TRUE BREEDER will overcome...
Do you use a contract? Yes, absolutely.. Our contract is available to view upon request.
Do you ship? We prefer that the kitten is picked up in person. Shipping is taken on a case by case basis. We will not ship during the winter months as it is too cold.
Will my kitten be spayed/neutered before placement? Yes, all kittens are fixed prior to placement. No exceptions.
Is there a deposit for my kitten? Yes. Deposits are $350. We do not except deposits on kittens until a minimum of 8 weeks old. We need the time to evaluate kittens to see development. Then we will decide if they will be placed into breeding/show programs or pet homes. By leaving a deposit you are signing a good faith contract of purchase for a specific kitten. We honor a deposit as a contract and once a deposit is made that kitten is not available for purchase to any other buyers. Our cattery's goal is to place our cats/kittens in loving homes in a timely manner, so they may bond with their new family. If a cat/kitten is held specifically for a buyer, a change of mind can quite often jeopardize the chance for that particular cat/kitten to be placed in a home while still at a desirable age.
When will your kitten be ready to go home? Kittens will not be sent home until 16 weeks of age. They need that time to bond with their mother and siblings to develop properly. Here is a good article with explanation: https://www.thespruce.com/when- can-kittens-leave-mothers-555163Kittens. Kittens can be spayed/neutered no sooner than 12 weeks and need time to recover. They also need to receive vaccinations at 8, 12, and 16 weeks old.
Can I come visit my kitten? Visitations are only for individuals, who were approved to reserve a kitten. When your kitten is 9 to 10 weeks old, you can schedule the visit (This is to ensure kitten has received its first set of vaccinations for protection). Our cattery is in our home, where we live with our cats. We work and have children, so visits must be planned ahead and often have to fit in around family obligations or new litters of kittens that keep us very busy. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. Unfortunately, we do not approve visits for people who did not reserve a kitten.
When it comes time visit my kitten, can I choose via Skype if I can't physically get to your cattery? Yes, of course!
Can cats go outside or be declawed? Cats are only allowed outside on a leash while accompanied. No roaming around freely. Our contract absolute forbids Declawing. It is an inhumane and unnecessary procedure. Please view the following informational website: http://www.pawproject.org/declaw-surgery/
What should I bring with me when I pick up my kitten? When picking up your new kitten, please bring a suitable carrier for the kitten to travel in safely. Also, we request that you bring any balance due (cash or money order only for payment of final balance, please) and a copy of our contract, signed by you. If paying by check, you must pay 14 days before scheduled pickup date. Your kitten will be washed, nails clipped, and smelling wonderful when you pick him/her up. All of our kittens are given a "kitty spa day" (bath, nail trim and ears cleaned) before they leave us for their forever home.
Do you offer a heath guarantee? We guarantee our kittens leave our home healthy. They are checked by a veterinarian before they leave to go home. In the event a fatal genetic defect is found in the cat/kitten within two years of purchase, the price paid for the kitten will apply towards a replacement kitten.
What kind of health testing do you do? We test for parasites and  ringworm. Blood Testing for FeLV (Feline Leukemia) and FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus). Vet check for Hip Dysplasia and Pateller Luxation.. Comprehensive Genetic Testing Panel
