British Shorthair Breeder - Cats - Toowoomba, QLD : Perfect Pets Profile

Carinya British Shorthair - At Carinya, we have a small breeding program that focusses on health and temperament first and foremost and of course on type. At Carinya British kittens are born and raised in our home and have lots of cuddles and attention. Babies are handled from birth to ensure an easy disposition.

As well as the usual veterinary work, we also DNA test our breeding cats for health concerns and also heart scan annually to ensure we are breeding with the healthiest cats possible. Our cattery is also FeLV and FIV free.

Vaccinations: Kittens will be vaccinated with F3 at 8 weeks and again at 12 weeks of age. They will also be wormed regularly.

At around 10 weeks of age, depending on size / weight, the kittens will go to our wonderful vets at the Garden City Veterinary Clinic to be desexed and microchipped.

Having bred cats for over 45 years, we have had lots of opportunity to investigate whether a totally indoor cat is as happy and well-adjusted as one that is allowed outside.

Personally, I feel the cats are just as happy and content if they have a loving and caring family who spends time with them. Cats are social beings and LOVE to be made a fuss of so keep your kittens / cats safe, save the wildlife and keep them indoors.

Breeder Questionnaire

Question. Do you health test in accordance with the current standards and recommended guidelines for your breed? Can you demonstrate your knowledge of any required DNA or other health related test results concerning your breed (if applicable).
We adhere as closely as possible to our Council's requirements for breeding age. Most queens have one or two litters and are then desexed and rehomed. We breed no more than three litters per two year period maximum. Our kittens are desexed, microchipped and vaccinated X 2 before leaving home. They are born and raised in our home with lots of love and cuddles so generally have wonderful temperaments. All breeding cats have been tested clear of all heritable diseases as available via DNA testing, including FALPS for British S/H. Our cattery is also FeLV and FIV clear.
Question. Do you ensure that your kittens are appropriately socialised? Please provide details about how you raise your kittens to ensure that their environmental and social needs are met, that they are suitable as pets. And, do you ensure that the new family understands and is equipped to continue this socialisation?
All kittens are born and raised in our home and get lots of attention from their human slaves as well as visiting grandchildren and friend's families.
Question. What written information about the conditions of sale, warranty, and information concerning the care and maintenance of the breed do you provide?
I prefer to be able to have a face to face with potential purchasers. With apps like WeChat etc, we can achieve this even when they live away from us. We do have a questionnaire that we like prospective purchasers to answer, though this is sometimes done through a video chat as well. There is no need for a desexing agreement as they are already desexed prior to leaving. Naturally we offer a health guarantee with all of our babies.
Question. Is ensuring that your kittens go to the right home a high priority? How do you ensure that the kitten will be a good fit, and be well cared for in its new home? Do you have a verbal or personal interview?
This is why we like a face to face / video chat with prospective owners. We like to get a feel for how this person plans to keep the kitten/s, totally indoors or in a secure enclosure is a MUST. I will not sell to people that I don't feel will abide by these rules.
Question. Do you offer ongoing support? For example: Help with introducing a kitten to other animals; help with any health or behavioural problems that might occur.
We are always happy to assist our purchasers with any help they require. The last thing we say as they leave with their fur baby is " Now remember, let us know if you have any questions or concerns - we are always here to help!"
Question. In the long term, do you assist with re-homing a kitten or cat if for some reason the new family are unable to care for it?
ON the very rare occasion that a fur kid needs to be rehomed, we try to find a good match for the particular cat though this is not always something we achieve. We do try though to make it happen.
Question. Do you offer pet insurance?
