Why should I choose a registered/pedigree kitten?

This is a great question. Here is an article that I find helpful. (Click on 'article')

Why Devon Rex & Scottish cats?

We fell in love with the dog-like qualities (like playing fetch) of the Devons. We also love their do-everything-with-you character, and their monkey-like-sit-on-your-shoulder behaviour! Devons are unique and they are fun. They are also super cute with their pixie-like, elf ears. Many love to go outside on a leash.

Scottish cats and our stud, who is a British Longhair, are beautiful. Cuteness pervades with their partial snubbed nose. Their coats are magnificent to pet and I love Simba's ticked (multicoloured) fur. They are friendly and not as active as Devon Rex cats.

Check out the Instagram video of Elfie playing fetch, and the photos of Scottish Simba and Devon Elfie out for a walk in a harness.

How does the adoption process work?

First we chat about the breed or the kitten you're interested in. I make sure your home is a good fit for the breed and kitten you'd like to adopt. As an example, Devon Rex cats don't do well home alone day after day. They like company. Other pets and humans will do!

Once the kittens have had their first vaccines and vet check, around eight weeks of age, we'll meet online so you can choose and reserve your kitten. Many choose their kittens based on photos and videos. Sometimes those on the waitlist are eager to adopt, and I'll start the reservation process early.

Once you've chosen your kitten, a $500 CAD deposit is due to reserve him or her. This reserve fee goes towards the price of your kitten. The remaining amount is due when your kitten is picked up, delivered, or before the flight is arranged. Pick up or transport is discussed before kittens are reserved.

Please note that visits to our home are rarely offered due to the risk of viruses to our breeding cats including pregnant and nursing moms, and unvaccinated kittens who don't have a fully developed immune system. Having a closed cattery means that no one enters the kitten room except myself and my husband. The health of our cats and kittens is our top priority.

When the kittens are old enough, they spend time in the kitchen and living room, playing, hanging out, and napping on the couch with us, before they graduate to their new homes!

We strive to raise healthy, beautiful, well-socialized kittens.

Once our kittens graduate to their new homes, we love kitty updates!

What do the kittens come with?

Kittens go home altered (spayed/neutered) unless breeding rights are granted. (Registered breeders like ourselves pay thousands of dollars for breeding rights, genetic testing, cat association fees etc. To learn more about the differences between backyard and registered breeding, click on 'article' at the top of this page.)

The adoption fee also includes one or two sets of vaccines, vet check, microchipping, deworming, a two-year genetic health guarantee, one month of pet insurance, pedigree, TICA registration, and ongoing support for your new feline companion.
