Frequently Asked Questions
Can you let me know when you have new kittens?
It’s not possible for me to reach out to all the people who ask me to. I don’t keep a waiting list. I ask that you please keep checking back often for future litters. I keep my website up to date, so new litters are posted on the Available Kittens page, or feel free to send me additional text messages anytime you want.
Are you on Facebook?
I’m not on Facebook.
Do you microchip your kittens/cats?
I don’t microchip. Please don’t let your cat outside.
How much are your kittens?
My kittens are $800-$1200, depending on color and quality. These prices are for pets with no breeding rights.
How do you feel about declawing?
I am very much against declawing. Trim your kitten’s claws once a week, and grown cat’s claws monthly. We just use human nail clippers. Provide at least one cat tree in your home with sisal rope for scratching. Train your new kitten to use it by spraying with catnip.
Do you have feeding times?
My cats/kittens have access to their dry food and water 24/7. Feeding times can cause upset stomach, as well as aggression between cats. Wash water bowls daily and dry food bowls weekly. Always give filtered water. Tap water may cause upset stomach due to chlorine.
Why don’t you allow buyers to your home?
I no longer allow buyers to my home, due to recent events. I meet buyers in public places for the safety of my family and pets.
Do you offer shipping?
I don’t offer shipping. Buyers can fly with their new kitten, as long as they are in the cabin and not cargo. I may also be able to personally deliver your new kitten for a fee, depending on the location and my schedule.
Do you offer discounts if I fly to Arkansas for my kitten?
Discounts are not offered.
Will you take less for the price of the kitten?
Prices are very firm, and never negotiable.
Will my kitten be eating solid food, drinking, and litter box trained?
Yes. Offer more than one litter box per cat. Make sure your new kitten is shown where his/her litter boxes are located. Provide food and clean water to your kitten 24/7. Remember to only give filtered water and not tap water.
At what age can I get my kitten?
Depends on who the parents are. My Himalayans can usually go home after 9 or 10 weeks, depends on the individual kitten. Most of my Persians will not leave until 10-12 weeks old, depending on maturity.
I have dogs. Will my new kitten be used to dogs?
My kittens/cats have never been around any dogs. (Please let me know if you have an aggressive dog BEFORE trying to buy a kitten from me.)
Where are you located?
Do you have Exotic Persians?
My Persian bloodlines are completely Exotic free.
I’m going on vacation. Can I postpone picking up my new kitten for a couple of weeks?
Failure to pick up your kitten on the scheduled pick up date results in loss of deposit. The kitten will then become available to a new buyer. If there is an unavoidable scheduling conflict, I’m sure we can make arrangements for me to hold your kitten for an additional 3 or 4 days, depending on the situation.
Should I get a boy or a girl?
You can’t go wrong with either one really. They both make great pets. I love the girls, but if I had to pick which would make the better lap cat, I’d have to say a boy. It would be a close call, though. However, it all depends on the individual kitten’s personality. It’s not a guarantee. The majority of males make the best pets, since they are especially more tolerant of children. Be sure you have him fixed at an early age to ensure no problems with marking his territory, when he grows up. Also, I can’t guarantee a kitten who is a lap cat for me will be a lap cat for you.
Should I get one kitten or two?
There is a real advantage to getting two litter mates. They will always have someone to play with and never be lonely. However, if you get only one kitten, it may become more attached to you. This is especially true if you are home a lot. If you make the decision to buy two kittens from the same litter, you will get a $50 discount from the combined total. We feel a kitten will be happier in the long run if it stays with one of its litter mates.
