Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How far out is your waitlist?
A. We have new inquiries every day! We have caught up a bit, but are a few months behind. Especially when we have families who want certain color and gender combinations that we don't seem to produce as often. We tend to produce more seal points and creams than blues and black. We also seem to produce more males than females!
Q. Where are you located?
A. We are located in Bowie, Maryland near Bowie High School. Go Bulldogs!
Q. I have filled out an inquiry on the Contact Us page, how do I proceed from here?
A. Thank you for filling out an inquiry from our Contact Us page. By submitting this inquiry, you HAVE placed yourself on our waitlist. Your next steps are to wait until Casey reaches out to you when we have reached your name and it is your time to pick out a kitten. She will only reach out to you when it is your turn on the waitlist and when we have a kitten that meets what gender and color you are looking for. If you have indicated that you don't have a preference in gender/color or n/a, you have a greater chance of being reached out to sooner than later, as we have a longer waitlist for females and black or blue kittens.
Q. How do I get on the Waitlist?
A. Please visit our Contact Us page to submit an inquiry indicating your name, phone number, email, color, and gender of kitten you are looking for, and press submit. By submitting this inquiry form, you have placed your name on the waitlist.
Q. Would I be able to come and meet the cats even before my name is reached on the Waitlist?
A. Absolutely! We encourage families to meet the breeders and cats for any cattery they want to adopt from. We take pride in our cattery and how we provide for our cats, and if a cattery does not want you to visit this may be a red flag for a scam. It is also a red flag for a cattery to want a deposit BEFORE meeting the kitten itself, or asking for a deposit in order to come and visit. Please be aware, visiting our cattery before we have reached your name on the waitlist does not mean you can pick out a kitten should one be available at this time. You can only pick out a kitten when we have reached your name on the waitlist to be fair to those who have waited for a kitten.
Q. I am allergic to hairless cats, can I come and meet the cats to see if this is the right breed for me?
A. Yes absolutely! We completely understand that while this is a hypoallergenic breed it still may cause an allergic reaction in some people. We encourage families to come by for kitten play time to see how they feel around this breed to ensure this is the best choice in a family member for them.
Q. Is the price for the kittens a set price?
A. Yes our kittens are $1900. An odd-eye kitten is $2100. Once you pick out your kitten, you can place a non-refundable deposit to hold your kitten which is $500. This deposit goes towards the overall price of the kitten, and the remaining balance is due upon kitten pick up when your baby is 8-9 weeks old, spayed and neutered, and ready to go to its forever home.
Q. What shots does the kitten come with?
A. The kittens will come with their first and second three-in-one Distemper shots. You will need to schedule their third three-in-one Distemper as well as their Rabies vaccine a few weeks after adoption as they will be too young at the age of 8-9 weeks to receive these vaccines.
Q. Can I purchase a cat not spayed or neutered?
A. Unfortunately, we do not sell our kittens not spayed or neutered.
Q. What dry and wet food does my kitten eat?
A. Our kittens eat Blue Buffalo dry food, and also Blue Buffalo or Fancy Feast kitten wet food. If you want to switch brands, you are supposed to slowly mix a little bit of the new brand with the old, and mix more and more of your brand as time goes on. After a week or so, it should be then mostly your new brand, and a little of ours, until eventually its fully just the new brand. Switching cat food brands cold turkey may result in an upset stomach, throwing up, and diarrhea. Please do so slowly and research switching brands!
Q. How do I bathe my kitten and what maintenance does it require?
A. We will use either Dawn or Johnson's Baby Shampoo to bathe our kittens whether it is in the sink or just a few inches of shallow water in the bathtub with warm water (drain the tub or sink immediately after bathing kitten). Please be careful not to get soap into the kittens eyes and ears. Use a washcloth to scrub the babies head and face using warm water. After bathing, we use q-tips to gently remove dirt and ear wax from the ear. Do not go too deep in the ear! Just remove what you can see gently with the q-tip or use your pinky finger and a baby wipe. Their nails grow pretty sharp too so we will clip the end of the nail (be careful of the quick, the red part of the nail) or you can use a nail filer to just remove the sharp tip. Check for eye boogies!
Q. Do you take deposits on future litters?
A. You may place a deposit at any time on a future litter, as this will always go towards your balance for a kitten from us in the future, but we recommend first meeting us and our cats, coming by to see our cattery, and waiting until you pick out your kitten before placing a deposit. Since the deposit is non-refundable, it may work out better to wait until we have a kitten you are looking for before placing the deposit. We know many things come up in life, and in case you change your mind, it might be best to just wait until you know for sure you are ready.
