BROKERS SHOULD NOT INQUIRE ABOUT OUR KITTENS!!!!


Anyone interested in our kittens must fill out a questionnaire that you can download here or speak to us in person, where we will go over all the issues on the questionnaire. (You may call to talk about our kittens.) We insist on knowing where our kittens will end up and approve of their new homes before they leave us. The questionnaire is designed specifically for the prospective pet parent to evaluate their home life before bringing a cat home. You can find the details of getting a kitten from us here.

If you have any questions about our kittens, don’t hesitate to reach us the following ways. If you call and we don’t answer, please leave a short message that you are inquiring about our cats. We will call you back as quickly as we can.

Check back to see updates on our kittens and upcoming litters. We are especially proud of our cats and love to share pictures and stories about them.

August 31, 2020

Due to the events of last week (see below), we have decided to wait until our kittens are 6 weeks old before they are offered as available.  At 6 weeks, they have an extensive health exam and their first set of intranasal vaccinations. At this time, we will have a green light from a veterinarian that they are thriving.  I have vowed never again to tell a prospective pet parents that their kitten cannot go home with them. It is too traumatic to the new parent and myself to do so.  Too many tears are shed over what should be a happy occasion.

With that said, Sydney’s babies will not be offered as available until after October 1, 2020.

See kittens from previous litters to get an idea of what our current kittens will look like as they mature, in our Kitten Gallery.

It should be said that due to unfortunate encounters with people running a scam for brokers, we will be vetting any prospective pet parents very diligently. If you are interested in getting one of our kittens, be prepared to answer very specific questions to prove that you are not a broker.

WHAT IS A BROKER?

A broker is someone who buys a kitten to resell for profit. They are not willing to give the kitten a loving home themselves, but will often sell to pet stores and people who cannot get a kitten from a reputable breeder for one reason or another.

(Left) These are Sydney’s beautiful babies. From top to bottom, there is a nonstandard chocolate and white classic tabby girl, a chocolate point standard girl, a red point nonstandard boy, and a standard chocolate and white tabby girl. I’m so proud of this litter. Each baby impressed me by how stout and strong they arrived. So who is my favorite this time, as I usually connect with one?  Sydney’s first baby out, the nonstandard chocolate and white tabby girl. She took my breath away when I first saw her.

I must say that this litter has had much interest by our litter update list, so I doubt they will make it past the update list. Should you want to be on the litter update list, which is notifications of our breeding plans and progress of pregnancies, and first crack at picking, then email us at cmrudy337@gmail.com. We do not spam or share your email, and you can request to be removed at any time.

Anyone interested in a kitten must fill out our Questionnaire/Application, or otherwise speak to me over the phone; at which time, we’ll go over the points on the questionnaire. We make a point of finding the best homes for our kittens, so it is not a first come/first serve basis. We feel our kittens are an extension of our family, so we put a lot of time and effort into finding great pet parents.

Sadly, we lost Hugo when he was only six weeks old.  He was Ellie’s little torbie boy, a very special and rare color. It turned out that Hugo had a heart murmur and the vet suspected that it was because of an undeveloped heart valve.  Because of that, Hugo’s heart was not circulating blood as it should and he became increasingly weak. Unfortunately, it was unrealistic to correct the measure at his age, and being as small as he was, it was even more unlikely that he would survive a surgery. We allowed him to stay with his family until he passed away shortly after his diagnosis that very same day.  We are incredibly heartbroken over this, but not so much as his mother and brother. Hugo took a part of my heart with him when he left. His passing brought Katy’s end all to clearly back into focus.  It is my hope that the two are together in another life.

Right, Hugo’s brother, Deku, comforts Hugo the afternoon of his passing. Ellie was above him, watching over the both. My husband and I were with them for the tragic end. Farewell, Hugo, you were much loved in this family. I will never be able to look at your beautiful pictures again without crying.
