Important Information to read before you contact me
What you need to know and be able to promise me:
Before contacting me regarding the purchase of a kitten, please read the following, and be aware that I sell kittens subject to a kitten contract which has to be read and signed before I will accept a deposit.
Kittens are not for breeding except agreed otherwise. You will be given a neutering certificate which the vet carrying out the operation will be required to sign & stamp. This is proof to me that the kitten has been neutered or spayed. I do not agree with unethical or un-authorised breeding of any animal and believe that rescue centres in the UK are already packed with unwanted animals, many of which are put to sleep every week. Cats are also specially selected for breeding and not every kitten in a litter will be suitable. Leaving breeding to people who know how to do it properly will mean the breed remains strong, and the best animals are selected to carry on the breed. My kittens are also sold on the non active register, except agreed otherwise, meaning that kittens from them won’t be able to be registered.
Please do your research before considering buying a kitten. Read as many books and browse informational websites as much as you can. It’s useful to join a forum then you can ask whatever questions you may have. Everyone is friendly and more than willing to help ‘newbies’. I started there and am very glad I joined!
Be certain that you have the space, finances and knowledge before you decide to buy. Kittens live for many years. Can you look after them and provide for them for the duration of their lives, and cover any vet bills that come along?
I absolutely recommend having your kitten insured. A lifetime policy can protect you from any large bills that could crop up. It’s a small price to pay compared with a large vet bill if something goes wrong!
My kittens are all born indoors and have all they could ever want. They are pampered and as a result are very cuddly, loving babies. I expect any new owners to continue this high level of care. My kittens are all happy and confident when they leave my home.
I will not sell to someone I have not had a reasonable level of contact with. I will not sell a kitten to someone that I haven’t met in person (if for example they are too far away to visit beforehand), and I do not export kittens.
I allow prospective new owners to visit my kittens when I feel they are ready. They must be at least 4 weeks old, never before. I will provide alcohol gel to ensure all hands are clean before I will allow anyone to touch my precious kittens. Please do not come to my house after visiting another litter, there is a risk of disease spreading. Please do not bring young children along for the first viewing. I prefer a maximum of 2 people visiting at one time. Bear in mind that you are entering my home, not a petting zoo!
What you get from me:
Kittens are all GCCF registered (on the non – active register, except agreed otherwise) and come with a full 4 generation pedigree, 5 weeks Insurance and a Kitten pack to make settling in easy.
They will be fully vaccinated worm- and flea treated.
They will also be litter trained, fully weaned onto quality food and well socialised. They will be used to the usual household sounds, i.e. hoover, washing machine etc. Kittens are pretty much bulletproof!!
Kittens leave my home when they are 13 weeks of age, in line with the current GCCF guidelines.
