Kittens go home with...
What Will Come with Your Kitten
All kittens will have Registration Transfer Certifications. IF you have reserved your kitten in advance, the transfer should be ready and available once they arrive here to us. 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.
Pedigrees can be ordered, but there are fees depending on how many generations you want to see. 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 of MY kittens will be registered with TICA as pets in a litter. This way you can choose your kitten’s name once you complete the registration. Otherwise, kittens name will need to be chosen by me to complete the registration. *
All kittens from Overseas will be Microchipped. My own litters will not be microchipped since they will only be 3 months old when you take them home.
All kittens will be De-Wormed at least 2 times. (Please read BLOGS for interesting information)
All kittens will receive check- ups. I will provide you with my Veterinarian’s Phone number and location in case you have further questions.
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 be 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. I recommend a week. 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.
If you are purchasing a kitten from my OWN litter, they will have 2 Distempers if you take them home at 3 months, and 3 Distempers if you take them at 4 months. You will need to provide the Rabies vaccine after the kitten is 4 months old. They will also be dewormed with the same schedule as the Distempers. All of my parent cats have been tested for FIV and FeLV and are Negative.
You will be responsible for spay/neuters with my kittens. I recommend waiting until they are about 5-6 months old.
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.
