Due to Covid restrictions, we are currently using an in cabin pet nanny.  As we move into winter, we will be able to ship some kittens via pet cargo, depending on outside temperatures.  If we use our excellent pet nanny, we deliver your kitten to Orlando airport and turn over to the pet nanny.  She will delivery to the closest major airport to you.  You will be provided a copy of her driver's license and a photo of her with your kitten in carrier at the airport.


If you would like to reserve a kitten, please contact me for a reservation form for your review.


​​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?  Yes, we will ship your kitten to any airport that has the United PetSafe program.  This program does not have any outside temperature restrictions as United Airlines provides immediately transports to and from the plane with no wait time in cargo or the tarmac.  The cost for shipping, including carrier, interstate health certificate, transport to the airport is $375.00  UPDATE - United has temporarily suspended this service due to Covid.  We are currently using an in cabin pet nanny and sometimes air cargo, temperatures allowing.


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.  Diamond and Zeus, my male (stud) cats do NOT spray and have free run of my house.  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.
