See the FAQ page for many other details. Most kittens are $1800 (plus 6.75% Ohio sales tax), with a $250 reservation fee due to reserve your selection. This fee goes toward your final purchase price. We do not sell kittens with breeding rights except to established catteries. Silver and smoke kittens are $2,000 (plus tax), due to the increased expense of importing high quality (aka healthy) and high-demand parents! We will only have a very few of these each year, as I work primarily with the traditional colors. We have a premier reservation list. You can pay the advance reservation fee to reserve your spot in line. This streamlines the process and makes things less hectic for us and for families! Contact me if you're interested in being on this premier wait list.
Retirees are few and far between, and the cost usually ranges from $600-1200. When possible, retirees go to therapy homes.
Reservation fee can be made via check, cash, or Venmo. Final payment must be cash or a money order/cashiers check. Breeder reserves the right to return the reservation fee for any reason. We will refund the deposit or offer choice of replacement kitten.
Working with us
A word about working with us: We are a real family raising these kittens, in our home, with small children. That means it is often busy and chaotic here, and I am notoriously slow to respond to emails. Care of children and cats will always take priority over emails or photos. Please keep in mind these kittens are very precious to us, and are not just a mass-produced item you buy at Walmart. We can only raise a very limited number of kittens each year, and each one requires an extraordinary amount of effort and expense to raise properly. If you're just wanting to buy a kitten quickly, without patience, respect, or a relationship, then I request you find another breeder to work with.
We pride ourselves on our healthy, friendly, beautiful cats. It is important with cats to socialize them early and thoroughly. Thankfully, our family - especially our two daughters - is very committed to this task! Kittens are ready to go to their new homes at 12 weeks of age. They will be CFA registered, have initial vaccinations, worming, may be spayed/neutered at our discretion, and have a licensed veterinarian's health certificate. See contract below for more information, including the health guarantee.
