While I realise that people will make their own decisions once they get their new kitten home, I try to place my Birman Kittens where I believe that they will have the best possible chance for long and healthy lives.
PRIOR to any inquiry, please make also sure you visit my Kittyhealth experience website about cat health, in particular the vaccinations page and think about it once again. Our Birman babies are naturally homeopathically vaccinated with a 7 way Nosode.
Due to many reports from breeders and new kitten owners about adverse reaction and death from feline vaccinations which show up in the day or two after the vaccine is administered, all our kittens are naturally vaccinated with the homeopathic Feline Combo Nosode which includes: Feline Leukemia, Panleukopenia, Feline Infectious Peritonitis, Feline Immuno Deficiency Virus, Chlamydia feline combo (calici, rhinotracheitis, distemper, chlamydia) a 7-way Nosode, plus FIP, FIV and Feline Leukemia.
Herpesvirus infection, also known as feline viral rhinotracheitis (FVR) is also included in this Nosode.
For more information about holistic cat treatments please browse through my website Kittyhealth Experience.
Visits are made by appointment to approved parties only, who are interested in one of the Birman kittens or Birman Cats listed as available on the Available Kitten or Retiree page.
No persons are allowed to browse our cattery unless they have a serious interest in one of our kittens.
The below points are firm, so if this does not suit you, please do not inquire.
I do not schedule casual, "just looking" visits. We are not a department store! I only have visits for people who are going to take one of the kittens or cats that I have available.
You need to let me know in which kitten you are interested in upon inquiry. I am usually able to take more photos and videos of a kitten to email upon request, to approved inquirers. And long chats on the phone about the kitten/cat are very welcome. I give as much information as you need.
You are able to spend as long as you want here with the kitten on pick-up day, and having a chat. And of course, if you do not like the kitten when you see him or her in person, then you are absolutely under no obligation at all. I do not have a waiting list and don't require a deposit. We reserve the right to refuse the sale of any kitten at any time to any person. Sales are 100% at our discretion!
It is highly important to me that both the kitten and the new owners are happy. If you are unhappy in any way, you may return the kitten within two weeks for a refund after consultation with us.
If you are considering a Birman from us, you will need to have a "FELINE" cat companion in your home. Birmans will become extremely lonely if they do not have a constant companion. THIS IS NOT NEGOTIABLE !
I don't ship kittens to unknown people or strangers !
You agree to keep the kitty indoor only.
DECLAWING is strictly PROHIBITED ! Declawing is a euphemism for the devastatingly painful surgery of paw tip amputation (amputation of the first joints) and that often paw amputation results in lifelong behavioral problems such as biting, hiding and urinating and defecating out-of-box because use of the paws to cover litter becomes forever associated with excruciating pain. No other country permits veterinarians to perform the excruciating paw tip amputation.
Our pet kittens are priced at $ 1,500, to be neutered.
Under normal circumstances our kittens leave our home spayed/neutered. $ 200.00 for boys and $400 for girls will be added to the sales price.
Microchipping on request, $ 45.00. Cases of wandering Chips have been reported. Therefore I am not recommending Microchipping.
Should you consider a kitten boy or a kitten girl? As a general rule of thumb, boys do tend on the whole to be more cuddly and affectionate than girls, although they are of course, all individuals, so it varies from cat to cat.
If you already have a female cat, it is safest to choose a male kitten/cat as sometimes a female will object to another female invading her territory, and this may cause ongoing dramas.
