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).
Yes
Snowshoes are not known to have any heritable genetic defects, but careful selection and mating of breeding cats is required to avoid inbreeding, due to being few in numbers. Careful selection of new foundation queens and studs, including genetic testing, is undertaken in order to keep the breed viable.
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?
Yes
Kittens are loved, handled and raised as part of the family.
Question. What written information about the conditions of sale, warranty, and information concerning the care and maintenance of the breed do you provide?
Yes
Pets are only sold de-sexed, to approved homes and come with a limited health warranty. Prospective families must be indoor homes that do not allow free-ranging of pets, and must undergo a verbal interview.
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?
Yes
Please see above. Also, preference is given to families with references from existing Snowshoe families, and who take part in the online Australian Snowshoe group for support.
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.
Yes
Families may contact us at any time for any concerns and we encourage regular updates as we want to see how our babies are faring through life! If at any time a family can no longer care for their cat, we are willing and able to take the cat back and/or assist in rehoming.
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?
Yes
See above.
Question. Do you offer pet insurance?
Yes
Six weeks free cover with Petcover.
