Enough with the pretense...
If you're looking to spend thousands simply for a piece of paper that tracks your kitten, I'm probably not the breeder for you. I am in the craft for my adoration of ALL kittens, not dealing with those who treat a precious animal like some new Gucci Bag. If you're not breeding or exploiting your kitten in shows, there is absolutely no reason to pay twice as much, but I'll gladly take your money if you insist lol.
Nowhere on my license does it say I MUST HAVE PAPERS on my kittens, and that ONE thing does not equate to a person being labeled as a Backyard Breeder. I don't need to obtain breeding rights on my personal cats, especially when I'm one of few breeders with a legal business license that can be held liable. The only one of our parents who is not registered is Buttercup.
I pride myself in running a low volume operation, not some kitten motel; Therefore, I don't entertain the silly ethics of snobbery associated with this business, and legally, I'm not required to.
I deliver each kitten PERSONALLY, and check for any issues in their appearance or breathing. I remove all sacs and cut the cords if the mother is not able to care for those details under duress.
No baby is EVER outdoors or in a cage alone, unless they would be sick and require isolation in case of a contagion.
All kittens are free to roam in an indoor, air conditioned/ heated space when age appropriate ( Approx 700 sq ft) with someone there at least 10 hours a day to take care of them. During labor week and week one, my assistant and I take turns working the cattery 24/7 in case of emergency. I'm usually there ALONE over 70 hours a week.
I DO NOT BREED OUT OF MY HOME! Our cattery might not be the best area or condition outside, but inside, it's set up strictly for the kittens to roam freely and with all the essentials for comfort when myself or my assistant must spend long hours or overnight.
ALL kittens are wormed, flea treated, litter trained and on organic food. I am absolutely ANTIVAX for myself, my children and my pets, so I make my rates affordable to cover this if you choose that route, but I will not vaccinate for you except for a Rabies vaccine when shipping.
30 Day Guarantee
If your kitten has something wrong IN THE FIRST 30 DAYS such as ringworm, fleas, mites, etc. after the required treatment we give them, I WILL TAKE THE KITTEN BACK, treat and isolate them until healed at no cost to you, and return the kitten with a clean bill of health at my expense.
Three Year Health Guarantee
We offer a THREE year health guarantee against serious, life threatening illnesses such as FIV, FELV, PKD and Liver or Kidney failure. All parents are negative for the first three, and your cat should usually live 15 to 20 years before kidney or liver failure occurs traditionally.
Please ask for a copy of the contract before putting down a deposit, because that legally binds us both by the contract even without signing.
