Why we do not change the prices of our kittens on request

Persian kittens are the most popular breed in the world, so there is a huge demand for them. Along with that, there are a lot of unethical breeders out there trying to make a quick buck. If you find a Persian for "cheap,"  you must ask yourself-  why are these kittens priced so much lower than all of the others?  Remember the old saying, "you get what you pay for?" We do not lower our prices to meet other breeders - please do not ask. Occasionally, we will have lower priced kittens once we decide who we want to keep and who we want to place in permanant homes. We have been asked quite a few times - "which are the "cheap" kittens? The answer has and will always be the same - we do not have "cheap" kittens.

You can easily tell a good breeder from a bad. It has nothing to do with cats in the show ring, an impressive family tree or Champion titles. Other than a cheaper price, here are some "red flags" to look for - are the cats poorly groomed (i.e. dirty eyes and unkept coat)? Is the advertising  filled with spelling errors and kittens listed as the wrong color? Are the photos quickly snapped on a dirty floor or in an old box? Do they offer testing and a state health certificate? What about vaccinations (shots) and deworming?  Do they have a lot of kittens to choose from? All of this probably means that they have purchased an inexpensive, poor quality male and female and just let them breed for quantity instead of for quality. They are chasing the almighty dollar.

Everyone who is a breeder with integrity knows that you do not make a lot of money if your doing it right. Of course, you make a little, but I put most of what I get right back into my cats. Food, vetting, beds, supplies, toys etc.  Our kittens are not "cheap" but they are not the most expensive either. You may get a great deal on the bargain baby, but it is more than likely that you will spend triple that amount on treating an ill kitten, if they make it at all, which breaks my heart. Remember, kittens are priced "cheaper" because the breeder has a lot of kittens to get rid of, or because they know the kittens are not up to standards. Some are not even full Persian. 

Our kittens are priced between $900 and $2,000. We require a $300 deposit to hold your kitten until I feel it is ready to go home with you, usually between 10 and 12 weeks. Deposits are non-refundable because a kitten may have missed out on a perfect home while we were holding it for you. We do allow you to transfer the deposit to the next litter we have available. Kitten must be paid in full at least one week before pick up and that time will be determined by us. For an additional fee of $350, we can ship via Delta or United airlines with their Pet Safe Program. We are within the guidlines of the Department of Agriculture and allowed to ship to you safely and legally. Included in the air fare is as follows: Ticket to nearest airport possible to you, delivery fees, kitten safe kennel, and a health cerificate from a licensed veterinarian prior to flying to ensure your babies health. 


How to spot a poor breeder

Prices and Shipping

We randomly choose several kittens per litter to spay or neuter to prevent undercover and unapproved breeders from using our cats.

CFA Registration papers will not be given until we are provided proof that you altered your kitten.

We may offer breeding rights to a very select few depending on if we have a kitten of that quality and determine you are a right fit.
