Frequently Asked Questions


We receive a lot of emails when we run an advertisement. We try to answer most of them, but we can't get to them all and tend to skip over ones asking question we feel could be answered by visiting the website. However, not everything can be explained in depth without boring everyone who may be stopping by just to take a peek at photos of our little fluff balls. With that said - Welcome to the boring page where I'll try to answer all the questions we get asked most often.

Do you have any kittens?

If we have a litter of kittens it should be posted clearly somewhere on the website. There is a status banner at the top with the most updated information. In most cases we will have a countdown posted on the home page and kitten page either counting down to a birth, or up since a birth.

Are any of your kittens still available?

We don't start taking deposits until the kittens reach four weeks old. If we have a young litter, then yes, they are all still available. Once the kittens are over four weeks old, then they will be listed individually for purchase on the kitten page. The images of the kittens are paypal buttons. Once you click the image you will be notified if the kitten is no longer available or will be allowed to place a deposit.

Do you have any males/females, or particular colors?

Once the kittens are available for purchase their genders and color points will be listed on the kitten page. Kitten genders can be very difficult to distinguish while they are young. Their color points won't become apparent for several weeks after birth and will continue to develop over their first year. We wait to make the determinations until we can do it confidently.

Do you expect any males/females, or particular colors?

Your guess is as good as ours. Feel free to take a look at our kitten page to see what they've had in the past. The only color/gender combination that we are incapable of producing is female Cream or Flames. We can and have produced males, we are just unable to produce females in those color points.

When do you expect your next litter?

If we are planning another litter, or are waiting for the birth of one, it should be posted on our website. Our general rule for minimum recuperation is 3 months for the litter plus 1 month for each kitten in the litter. Meaning: If Karma has 5 kittens, she will have at least 8 months to recuperate. However, we commonly use other factors as well. Just because we can breed, doesn't mean we will.

How much do they cost?

All our kittens are $500 regardless of gender or color. If eligible, we offer a wait list discount of $100 leaving the final kitten price at $400.

Can I place a smaller deposit, or do I have to put down $200?

The $200 deposit not only lets us know that you are serious, but it also ensures that we will have limited additional expenses if you back out last minute. Once a kitten has sold, we notify all other interested parties of this. Some will put their names on the wait list, while most will immediately look for a kitten elsewhere. If you are unable to pay or decide not to purchase the kitten we then have to start over with our advertising and search for a suitable home. We will continue to vet the kitten while in our care, so our investment goes up the longer the kitten remains with us and the older the kitten becomes the less desirable it is to potential buyers.

Do you offer any deals if I buy more than one?

We don't generally recommend people getting multiples from the same litter. They are more likely to bond to one another then their owner when they are brought home together. Most people believe this will be best if they will be out of the home a lot. It takes a much higher level of commitment to bring home two together, and being away often just exacerbates the situation. If you want your kitty to have a companion it's best to add one later after the two of you have already bonded. We don't disallow the purchase of multiples it's just not anything we'd want to encourage with a discount. Anyone returning to purchase an additional kitten after receiving one from a previous litter would be automatically entitled to the wait list discount regardless of when or if their name was added to the list.

Are they registered?

All our kittens are CFA Registered pets. We offer full registration with breeding rights to approved homes only.

How much without papers?

They have papers whether or not you intend to register them. We don't sell our kittens discounted without papers. If you find "clearance kitties" elsewhere, they probably were never registered to begin with.

Are they litter trained?

All kittens are naturally litter trained. We are aware others advertise they've trained their kittens already, but we think it's silly. Ours are trained by years of evolution and instinct. We can't really take the credit.

Are your cats non-allergenic?

The short answer: Hahahahaha! No. The long answer: There is no cat breed that is legitimately non-allergenic. There are however breeds that are hypoallergenic (less-allergenic) than others. There is a really long answer involving the production of the protein Fel d 1, but the explanation still ends with the same result. Persians and Himalayans are not for allergy sufferers.

Can I have the kitten shipped?

We do not allow our kittens to travel unaccompanied on an airplane. All animals sent this way are put in the cargo hold. This can be very dangerous. You are welcome to fly with your pet, but you need to be sure you understand the airlines carry-on pet policy. Bangor International Airport is serviced by the following airlines: Allegiant, Delta, United, and US Airways. Delta does not allow any "snub-nosed" breeds to ride in the cabin. Allegiant, United, and US Airways have policies with fees ranging from $100-$125 for each leg of the journey. Each airline not only has their own policy, but they have additional restrictions for each and every flight. You need to be sure every part of your trip will allow for you to carry-on your kitten. Be sure to pay attention to age restrictions when booking your flight. Animals must be up to date on all shots when traveling. If we need to hold your kitten until it reaches a certain age it will likely be due for additional shots. Any additional fees we incur after the kitten is 8 weeks old will be at your expense. If flying with your pet is not an option there are many animal transport services available. You would be responsible for all payments and arrangements with the courier and any additional cost we incur in the process of readying your kitten for the journey. If we will not be meeting with you in person we may require additional information from you prior to approving your purchase of the kitten. We do not have any experience or recommendations with any transport services. Any transport method you choose is at your own risk.

What's better a male or female?

Neutered males absolutely make for the best pets. Not only are their personalities more suited to everyone, but they are less expensive to care for. It's a lot more expensive to have a female spayed then have a male neutered. Females also make for wonderful pets, but they are more likely to choose one or two people to interact with and the rest of the household will be treated like the staff.

Can you add my name to the wait list?

I can, but you should know that I do this by following the same procedure you would. I navigate to our website and copy and paste your information into the wait list form. If I miss this request during our communication, then your name may remain absent from the list.

I'd like some info...

I'm sorry, but I have no idea what information you are seeking. Please be more specific. We provide a wealth of information on our website and it can be tiresome to reiterate it all via email in hopes of providing you with what you're looking for.
