Beautiful British Shorthair kittens, including unusual colours and patterns. My kittens leave me at about 12 weeks old, already desexed (unless not yet possible), microchipped, vaccinated appropriately, registered, treated for fleas and worms, litter-trained, socialised etc. Unusually there is also a written guarantee tht they are free of leukaemia and feline AIDS plus all the genetic diseases for which DNA tests are available (about 10).

My primary focus is on the kittens' health and temperament plus appearance.

Kittens are reasonably priced considering all the inclusions.

Many of my kittens go to families who already have 1 or more of my cats or to people recommended to me by them or their vets.

Please tell me something about the home and family you are offering to a kitten.

Breeder Questionnaire

Question. Do you health test in accordance with the current standards and recommended guidelines for your breed? This includes genetic testing, and having sensible, sustainable breeding strategies in place to promote the health of your cats and kittens.
Yes
For many years my cats have all been tested clear for feline leukaemia, feline deficiency virus and every genetic disease for which DNA tests are available here. My cats were actually part of the research for Ragdoll HCM and for PKD. I also started the feline blood bank at Murdoch University in WA. My breeding strategies are well-formulated for protection of the wellbeing of both my adults and my kittens. Too detailed to go into here.
Question. Do you ensure that your kittens are appropriately socialised.
Yes
My kittens get appropriate handling and interaction with me plus my helpers several times a day. For example every morning and evening we have times together which also trains them that 'dark time is quiet time' so they will not disturb their owners at 2 a.m. every night while they continue their merry nocturnal feline play times:-) Also grandkids help:-) Also, if I have a single-kitten litter, I foster that kitten to another litter from about 5 weeks old so they can get the necessary socialisation by siblings too e.g. through learning to keep their teeth and claws to themselves reasonably through mock-fighting.
Question. Do you have any of the following: conditions of sale, health guarantee or warranty, de-sexing agreement, a buyer questionnaire, verbal or personal interview?
Yes
Yes, all of the above except a written buyer questionnaire as I prefer to get to know them through a multiple of emails and phone calls and meeting if possible. In this State (WA) it is compulsory for every kitten/cat changing hands from 12 weeks old onwards MUST be microchipped and MUST be desexed before departure or a pre-paid desexing vet voucher be provided and that kitten MUST be desexed by 6 months old. Since I began breeding my kittens have all been desexed before departure. On the rare occasion one could not be (e.g. only 1 teste descended) we arrange appropriate pre-payment with the buyer's own vet and to send me a copy of that certificate, for which I send a reminder as time approaches that 6 months also afterwards if necessary. This is part of our WA law now, which is great! In fact we are even supposed to notify the buyer's local council of the client's kitten/catownership!
Question. Is ensuring that your kittens go to the right home a high priority? What measures do you take to ensure your cats and kittens are going to responsible, loving homes?
Yes
See above. Extremely important!! If I had not intervened with Nature then these kittens would not exist, so it is my responsibility to ensure as far as possible that they will have the best lives possible.
Question. Do you offer ongoing support?
Yes
Anything that helps, from the minute the kitten leaves till the end of its life if needed. I tell new buyers, especially those who have never been responsible for a young kitten before, to feel free to ring or email as often as they feel he need, that there is no dumb question, that there are never too many questions as 19 of 20 may have solved themselves but that 20th question may have been critical. I appreciate that I even get calls from some people when their adult cat may die, as they feel the need to talk with someone whom they know will understand, also who may be able to clarify some details for them, also perhaps may be able to make them feel less guilty.
Question. Do you assist the buyer with re-homing an animal that was purchased from you if they are unable to keep it?
Yes
I will help them to find a new owner e.g. go through my books to see if I have any suitable people available or help them in writing suitable ads or in how to vet someone who applies. But I do not normally take back the kitten/cat, as it could be a substantial threat to the health of my own cats and vulnerable kittens. If I do take one back I must quarantine it and do some (expensive) re-testing, all of which would be very upsetting and scary and lonely for the cat. So I warn the person of that so we can together look for a way that the kitten/cat can be re-homed from their own home. This almost always works, one way or the other.
Question. Do you offer pet insurance?
