INFORMATION

KITTEN RESERVATION

Please tell us about yourself, your family and your current pets.  It's important for us to know that our babies will be going to loving homes.  Also please let us know if you have a color, pattern and gender preference or have questions to make that decision. You can do this by clicking on the application button at the top right of this page or by clicking here.

 

We are a small cattery with a limited number of babies available each year. If you are seriously interested in adopting one of our babies or a retired adult, please complete the kitty application. Once approved and we have a kitten to offer to you, at that time a deposit will be accepted to reserve that baby or retired adult. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable and are deducted from the balance due at time of pick up. Please keep in mind assessment periods can be up to 4 months of age. On average though, it is about 9 to 10 weeks. After the assessment period, we offer first to those waiting for show/breeders and second to those waiting for show alters. Pet quality kittens may be offered at any time during the assessment period depending on when the quality is determined.

VISITS

 

At this time we do not allow visits due to having young unvaccinated kittens and expecting moms.  Kitten pics and videos  are posted on social media.  Pics will also be posted on the Nursery page and an update with pictures of your kitten will be sent via email upon request.

 

GO HOME DAY

 

Kittens leave us at approximately 12-13 weeks of age.  The time they leave usually always depends on how they are recovering after alter surgery.  Since altering is done prior to kittens leaving, it may affect the time they were scheduled to go home.

 

Scheduled pickup is usually made on the weekend, but we are flexible whenever possible.  We can and have met families within one hour from our home at no additional cost.  Just ask as we would like to make the transition for the family and the kitten as simple as possible.

 

If you have vacation plans, please be sure to time it when the kitten has been home for a couple months if at all possible.  It's better to bring the kitten home when you can devote time to him or her to get them accustomed to their new environment before long trips. Otherwise waiting for another litter is highly advisable when the timing is more suitable.

 

Lastly, please don't forget to bring a carrier and the balance in cash on go home day unless other arrangements have been agreed upon in advance. We do not accept any other form of payment on day of go home.  If you would rather pay via check or money order, payment must be received by the time your kitten is 10 weeks old.

Pet Quality: A kitten application is required as a first step of our adoption process. The Application button can be found at the top right of this page or by clicking here.  Price varies plus sales tax.  Kittens are priced individually. The price does include the cost of spay or neuter surgery done by my vet before they leave for their new homes. Pet quality means that they may have a mismark or other flaw that would penalize or disqualify them in the show ring. A non-refundable deposit of $500 is required to reserve an available pet quality kitten.
 

Show Quality Alter:  A kitten application is required as a first step of our adoption process. The Application button can be found at the top right of this page or by clicking here. Priced depending on quality plus sales tax.  The price does include the cost of spay or neuter done by my vet before they leave our home.  Show quality means that they will also have show rights and be as close to the Ragdoll Standard as possible with near or perfect markings and no disqualifying faults.  A $500 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve an available show quality alter kitten.

 

If you decide on a show alter and need assistance, I do encourage showing.  I have found showing to be fun, exciting and rewarding.  It is a quick way to make new friends in the cat fancy that have similar interests.  If this interests you, visit TICA and CFA for cat show information.


Show/Breeder:  We place very few kittens with breeding rights.  Kittens are priced based on quality and only offered to approved small ethical catteries in good standing. Must be TICA and/or CFA registered.   A non-refundable deposit is required to reserve a chosen show/breeder kitten.

 

Retired Adults:  An application is required as a first step of our adoption process. The Application button can be found at the top right of this page or by clicking here. Priced based on quality and age plus sales tax.  They will be up to date on shots and spayed or neutered before leaving us.  A non-refundable deposit will be accepted to hold an adult until he/she is altered and ready to go home.  Once adults are altered for their new home, deposits are not transferable to another adult or kitten.

 

Transportation:  It is required that you drive or fly to bring your kitten home.  We do not use transporters for pet quality and show alter quality kittens or adults.  We can meet within reason. Only under special circumstances, we may deliver the kitten directly to your home.  We use a transporter for kittens with breeding rights if you are unable to fly here. Our airport code is CVG.  We will not ship cargo. All transportation expenses are the responsibility of the new owner.

 

We reserve the right to refuse sale for any reason and at any time.

All kittens are altered prior to placement and a signed contract required to not declaw and keep indoors only. 

Kittens are available until a deposit has been received and requested to hold that particular kitten.

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS

 

We use pine pellet type litter for our babies. We may gradually change litters to Fresh Step scoop if we feel the kittens are mature enough. A large high-sided litter box and a low-sided one are suggested. And if you end up buying one with a top, take the top off for the first couple weeks. Having one litter box per kitty plus one is the rule. Our kittens are accustomed to jingle balls, teaser wands and scratch posts with sisal rope. When purchasing a carrier, purchase an intermediate size big enough for the kitten as an adult. Kittens love the large condos/climbers with many perches, but buy a 4 foot or smaller one and save the taller ones for when kittens are older. Other items to purchase are nail clippers, grooming comb or slicker brush and stainless steel or porcelain bowls. Never use plastic dishes as they have been known to cause chin acne. All these items can be found at any of the pet store chains.
