When can I pick my kitten up to take him home? Kittens receive their 2nd core vaccination at 12 weeks. Generally, they can go to their new homes a few days after receiving this vaccination and their Florida Health Certificate.
What kind of vaccinations, tests, wormings and training will my kitten have before I pick him up? Your kitten will have had prophylactic wormings starting at 6 weeks; will have a negative fecal test, 2 kitten core vaccinations and 2 health exams by my long time veterinarian as well as a Florida Health Certificate. Your kitten will be litter box trained.
Do you ship kittens and what is the cost? UPDATE - United has temporarily suspended their PetSafe service due to Covid. We are currently using an in cabin pet nanny. She loves animals and gives your new kitten excellent care.
When should my kitten be neutered? Check with your veterinarian but generally it is recommended that kittens be neutered around 8 months or so. You will receive a copy of your kitten's registration papers when you pick up you kitten. You will receive the original certificate upon written proof of neutering.
Do you sell kittens with TICA breeding rights? Sometimes, to approved homes only. There is an extra charge for TICA breeding rights.
Why is there a difference in pricing based on kitten colors? It's a matter of supply and demand. We breed primarily silver /chinchilla shaded kittens with the occasional black or blue golden chinchilla/shaded kitten. However, there is a large demand for our few goldens and blues (NOT British blue).
Do male cats spray? All cats can spray - male, female, neutered, not neutered! However, early neutering (around 8 or 9 months) will almost guarantee that your cat won't spray. I believe that spraying is an inherited, personality trait. I have not heard of any of his kittens spraying or marking territory. It is very important to keep a clean house related to cats - litter boxed scooped at least once a day and litter and box changed frequently; any accidents should be treated with an enzyme cleaner to eliminate odor. I completely change moms, dads and kittens' boxes every 12 - 48 hours - new litter in a bleached litter pan.
