Note: We have retired from breeding, but I am leaving the following up for educational purposed. If you are looking for a reputable breeder, here are some I know and know of. If you see a breeder offering a kitten for less than $2,500 you can go ahead and assume they are a SCAM!
------------------------------------- See the FAQ page for many other details. In 2021 we unfortunately have to increase kitten prices, due to the high cost of breeding kittens in a quality, reputable way. Please know this an expensive hobby for us, and the biggest investment is the time and love we pour into each kitten! Kittens prices are based on color, and range from $2,500 to $3,000 (plus 6.75% Ohio sales tax), with a $250 reservation fee due to reserve your selection. This fee goes toward your final purchase price. Prices are subject to change! If you place join the premier reservation list, you lock in the pricing at that time. *We offer a $200 discount on a second kitten within six months, and $100 military discount. We do not sell kittens with breeding rights except to established catteries. Traditional colors are $2,500, and smoke and black/patch silver kittens are up to $3,000 (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 $1,000-2,000. 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.
