Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

How much do British shorthair kittens cost?

Pet: $1800
Breeding rights: $2800+
The purchase price includes the first two sets of immunizations and contract that includes a health guarantee.

Ask us about the specific kitten you’d like. Occasionally we will have available retired adults who we are no longer using in our program. Their price will vary and is a great way to get an amazing pet at a reasonable price!

Can I get on a waiting list?

Yes you can.  We have two different lists.

  • The first is a casual list.  You can fill out our form on our contact page to be added to our waiting list and we’ll let you know when we have available kittens.
  • The second list is for people that want to reserve their place in line by placing a deposit.  Just let us know which one works best for you.
Can I reserve a kitten?

You can place a $200 deposit to hold a kitten. The deposit will go toward your final purchase price and is NOT refundable. We accept cash, check and credit cards.  There is a processing fee for credit cards. We will reserve your place in line for a kitten AFTER we’ve received your deposit.

There is a button on this page that says, “RESERVING A KITTEN IS EASY!”  Go here to place your reservation.

 

 

How does the kitten selection process work?
Once people have placed a deposit to reserve a kitten, we put them on our official waiting list and make a note of any particulars that they are looking for, ie. gender/color.

When we have kittens available, we first let everyone on the official list know what kittens are available.  Selections are made by people that put their deposit in first.  Sometimes people fall in love with a kitten that is a different gender or color than they initially thought they wanted.  If this is the case, they can change their mind!

If the kittens that are available don’t fulfill the particulars that  people on the official waiting list are waiting for, we let people on our casual waiting list know about the kittens.

Placing your deposit reserves your place in line and give you priority.
We often have a few people who have placed their deposit and are waiting for kittens, but we can’t necessarily predict how long the wait may be.
What is a pet kitten/cat?
Sold as a pet means your kitten will be sold without breeding rights. Once we receive your veterinarian’s verification of spay/neuter, we will provide you with TICA (The International Cat Association) purebred registration papers.
What age do you sell your kittens?
Your new kitten can come to your home between 10-15 weeks of age.
What is color pattern?
Color pattern is what their coloring looks like. The kittens born in our cattery can be solid blue, black, or silver tabbies. We occasionally can also have colorpoint and shaded kittens.
What vaccinations do you give?
We give the first two set of immunizations, which includes Panleukopenia, Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus and Chlamydia at 6 and 9 weeks. We do not give the Feline Leukemia or FIP vaccinations. Please consult with your veterinarian about their recommendations on these immunizations. The adult cats in our Beauty Tracks Cattery have tested negative for Feline Leukemia , Feline Immunodeficiency Virus antibody (AIDS) and Heartworm.
Can I see a sample contract for a British short hair?
How will I get my kitten or cat?
Beginning November 18, 2013, I joined a very large number of breeders across the U.S. in no longer shipping pets. Due to a change in Department of Agriculture regulations for pet breeders that the USDA itself has interpreted in contradictory ways, it is impossible for most persons who sell pets to know whether it is legal to ship a pet that the buyer has not seen in person. Violations of this rule carry severe penalties. For our safety, ALL sales must take place face to face.
This ruling is going to seriously curtail the choice of those wishing to buy the pet of their choice unless you are willing to travel to your breeder of choice regardless of distance. As written this will also affect service animals being made available to those in need.
While we do understand the need to stop those who don’t properly care for their animals, and who knowingly sell sick kittens and puppies, we already have existing state and federal laws for those issues.
If you would like to help us fight this bad choice of regulation policy, here is a good page here for more information courtesy of the National Animal Information Alliance, including a place where you can write to the USDA to make your own voice heard.http://www.naiaonline.org/naia-library/articles/the-usda-proposed-rule-and-you/
It is YOUR right to be able to buy a cat or kitten from whoever you choose and to pick it up personally or have your cat or kitten shipped to you or to meet your breeder at a mutually agreed upon place to save you travel and expense. However, you only have that right if it remains OUR right to offer those choices.
What do I need to know about using Paypal?
Paypal will accept credit cards. You can use Paypal with your credit card even if you don’t have a Paypal account.

What a fabulous kitten…and purrfect! Her personality is so loving yet confident and playful. I am so thankful that we connected with Diana and Cynthia and that I have my little traveler in her new home in Michigan! My third British Shorthair…but wow, she is something! Couldn’t have a more wonderful and beautiful companion!
