HOW DO I RESERVE A KITTEN?
A non-refundable deposit is required. Deposits vary by price of kitten. So, please contact to move forward on reserving your kitten. Usually between $250 & $500.
CAN WE COME VISIT THE KITTENS?
Yes! We love to have visitors to our cattery! Please contact to schedule! We only have visitors by appointment.
DO YOU HAVE A HEALTH GUARANTEE?
Yes! Our kittens are guaranteed to be in good health. We promote from birth to when the kitten leaves our cattery optimal conditions for healthy cats. After the kitten leaves our cattery we are not in control of environmental conditions that can affect your cats health. So, we are not able to cover any vet costs that are not associated with our care. If a kitten would end up having a vet certified genetic diagnosis within the first year of its life we are happy to provide a replacement kitten. Please if there is any issue with your kitten contact us and we are happy to assist you!
ARE THEY UP TO DATE ON VACCINATIONS AND DEWORMING?
Yes! They will leave the cattery with age appropriate vaccinations that are customary. The kittens are also dewormed regularly from 2-3 weeks till they join their new family. Kittens will come with paperwork with history of vaccinations and deworming schedule. Please note that this regimen needs to be continued throughout the kittens life. Connect with a vet to insure your kittens health is managed properly throughout its life.
WHAT MORE DO I NEED TO DO FOR MY KITTEN TO MAINTAIN PROPER HEALTHCARE?
Contact a veterinary and they will get you on target. Parasite control and vaccinations need to be continued throughout life to maintain a healthy happy kitten. Also, flea and tick prevention is very important!
WHAT DO YOU FEED?
We feed a variety! They have a choice from dry kibble (Nutri Source), canned food (very rarely now), raw chicken necks, hearts, livers and cooked chicken or beef gravy. Chicken quarters boiled with quick oats to make a gravy, then pick the meat off the bones and discard the bones) We try to stay away from any feed containing corn, wheat and soy. (We don't feed much canned food anymore, we found it caused diarrhea).
DO THEY USE THE LITTER BOX?
Yes! All kittens are started on litter training and familiar. This starts between 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 weeks old. When they start eating food other than mothers milk. It is best to contain your kitten in a smaller area during its transition so it becomes familiar with its new environment (Food, water & Litter box). Once that is established the kitten should be fine in a larger area. We use unscented litter. We buy ours at Tractor Supply. Paws and Claws scoopable litter in the 50 lb bags. We do not recommend scented litter. It is good to clean it one to two times a day depending on the amount of cats using it.
