All kittens will have Transfer Certifications. IF you have reserved your kitten in advance, the transfer should be ready and available once they arrive here to us. It is possible that the transfers will not be ready at pick up time. If this is the case, the breeder will send a digital copy which I will forward to you through Facebook or email. Once I receive the original certificate, I will mail it out to you at the address you have provided. IF you purchase a kitten after they have arrived, we need to send the breeder your information to get the kittens papers in YOUR name. It will be the same process of waiting for the original documents and mailing them to you.
Kittens from overseas come with passports. They contain the vaccines that were given. You will need to give this to your vet so they can record and have the information. When your kitten arrives, you DO NOT NEED any vaccines or suggested vaccines. They have everything they need for a year. I ask that new owners have a vet appointment made within a few days after getting your kitten. The purpose of this visit is for a check-up only. Have them check gums, heart, ears, etc. I highly recommend a blood test to be sure organs are good.
Pedigrees can be ordered, but there are fees depending on how many generations you want to see. Some breeders will send them for free. If you would like a Pedigree Certificate it is an additional $30.00 for 3 generation and $50.00 for 5 generation. It is better for you to get this yourself so you can have your name and the kitten's name on it. All Registration Certificates and Pedigree Certificates will be the various Cat Organizations.
All kittens from Overseas will be Microchipped.
All kittens will be De-Wormed at least 2 times. (Please read BLOGS for interesting information)
All kittens from Overseas will receive all necessary shots which is the FVRCP (Feline Distemper Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus and Panleukopenia.) This particular vaccination is a combo in 1 shot. It is given 2-3 times before the kitten is 16 weeks old. I am personally asking my breeders to provide 3 of these Distemper vaccines to help protect kittens during transport. Overseas kittens will also receive their Rabies vaccine and their parents are tested for FIV and FeLV and FCov prior to travel. This does not protect kittens during travel. If kitten becomes infected with anything during transport, I will replace the kitten.
It is also important to keep new pets away from your current pets just in case there is a problem. Quarantine is very important. I am now keeping kittens a few days to monitor them. I recommend a week quarantine once you get them home.
I try to make sure kittens are spay/neutered before coming to the U.S. Since the war in Ukraine, some breeders do not have this available to them in their areas. It is 99.9 % likely that the kittens will be spay/neutered when they come to us. If they are not spay/neutered, it will be your responsibility to do it.
You will be responsible for spay/neuters with my litters of kittens. I recommend waiting until they are about 5-6 months old. Once you have spayed/neutered, please send me the proof from the vet. I will send your certificate once I have confirmed surgery .
I do not recommend clay powdery litter. This sticks to kitten’s paws and then they lick it off. It also puts out a lot of dust which they inhale and is not good for them or you. I am using pine pellets. It’s best to read up on different types so you can decide for yourself.
Update: After this information, I have switched to some clay based LOW dust litters. This is for my ADULT cats. I am actually sampling different ones that seem the best. I will update later on my findings. BUT, for kittens, I still suggest the pine pellets.
Ok, so I am now doing Pine Pellets only. LOL. I just think it's the better natural choice.
Another update- After many types of litters, I have switched to OKO clumping litter in pellets. This is really the best so far. Regular pine pellets disintegrate into saw dust and then become smelly. Very wasteful and costly to keep scooping out disintegrated litter. With the OKO clumping litter, you just scoop out the clumps. Link for Oko and Purina One for Kittens is on my BLOG section. New Update. We just started using World's Best Litter in RED bag. We like it.
