No, our home and cattery is closed to the public. This is for our safety and privacy. There are no exceptions.
No, we do not ship our kittens by cargo. You would have to meet us in person for the exchange. We can deliver to the Detroit airport for a small fee just to cover gas and parking.
We reserve the right to alter our prices due to many circumstances. You can expect to pay at least $1,200 and up to as much as $2,500 or more for a Balinese or Tibetan kitten. Retired adult queens are offered to the right homes for a small fraction of the costs for a kitten.
No, all our kittens and cats are spayed and neutered before leaving us to go to their new homes. There may be rare exceptions...
The vast majority of the people who get our kittens are allergic to cats and so far we have not had anyone who wasn't able to tolerate our low-allergen cats. No cat is proven hypoallergenic or non-allergen. However, Balinese are often listed as such and most allergy sufferers are quite able to tolerate these cats with little to no allergic reaction. You are expected to be prepared for some initial adjustment, but no we are not going to guarantee you will never sneeze around our kittens. No sensible breeder will guarantee that.
We are in Waterford, Michigan.
No, we do not keep waiting lists. You would just need to check back with us when we have kittens available and send your application specifying which kittens you wanted to reserve.
In order to reserve a kitten, you would have to be given our consent first. Then you would be asked to place a nonrefundable deposit via PayPal in the amount of $500 per kitten. Use our email firstname.lastname@example.org for this transaction.
Absolutely, it's good for one year against congenital defects that may cause death or serious health concerns.
Preference is given to people who send inquiries by email. I want to know who I am speaking with before I start a conversation. If you send an application and I am willing to proceed, I will be calling you. We stopped listing our phone number to the public because it was taking up so much of our time talking with people who are not serious about working with us to acquire a cat or kitten. Many people were just calling to be rude or at very inappropriate times asking ridiculous questions! Anyone who leaves their phone number open to the public is at risk of this type of harassment.
No, those costs are additional. They are at much reduced fees that we have negotiated with our veterinarian. You will be given a copy of the receipt and we expect you to reimburse us for the full amount at the time of the meeting and exchange.
We have been using pine pellets from Tractor Supply Company since 2014 and we highly recommend it! Here is a link 🔗 https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/tractor-supply-pine-pellet-stall-bedding-40-lb
Firstly, you will probably need more than one eventually and it depends on how big of a home you have. I do not recommend ones with lids or robotic for clumping litter. Scoopable clumping cat litter is deadly and toxic to all kittens! Here is a link to a litterbox that's going to work well 🔗 https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/petmate-basic-litter-pan-large-22183
Most all of them are made with plastic. Only use stainless steel for water and food dishes. Water bowls should be cleaned daily! Ask yourself how difficult it would be to clean that water fountain on a daily basis. Are you up for a time consuming challenge?! Or do you have better things to do with your time?
This is one I highly recommend from Wayfair! 🔗
If you are flying in and meeting us at the airport, I highly recommend you get this carrier: 🔗
If you are driving in from a short distance that's less than two hours away, you can purchase a good one where we meet up for the exchange.
If you have a long drive, you can purchase a pop-up kennel from us that's 36" x 22". It's $25, but you will need a pet bed and litterbox to go inside.
