Our goal is to bring into your family, another member. That is why we work extra hard at socializing all our Scottish Fold cats and kittens. I think most people do not really understand the critical importance of the window of socialization that lasts only from 2 weeks to 7 weeks of age. This quote is from Robert Tabor's Cat Behavior: A complete guide to understanding how your cat works: "Eileen Karsh established that the window of the sensitive period for habituating kittens to people is from two weeks to seven weeks. Cats handled regularly during this time were prepared, when older, to stay on someone's lap longer and approach people more readily. Cats that were handled after this period, that is from weaning on wards, behaved no differently from cats that had not been handled at all. ...All too often, as young kittens they will not have been handled regularly. Brought into new homes where they are the focus of attention they receive lots of handling, yet it seems this will not socialize them as well as the little time spent each day before weaning." We believe this is true, so from the day they are born they are handled and it has paid off. Scottish Fold kittens that are a joy the minute they get adjusted to your home. I am not a pressure salesperson for I believe choosing a member of the family is a huge decision and a Scottish Fold kitten will not just be a "cat" but a true member of the family. Please remember that you are not the only person inquiring about a particular kitten. A Deposit is what will hold a kitten for you until he/she is ready to leave and that with the deposit agree to my contract. Deposits are nonrefundable. This has been added for over the years I have people falling in love with a particular kitten and he/she is sold before they have committed to he/she, thus being severely disappointed.
My folded kittens are 1750.00 and Perk Eared Kittens run 750.00. This does not include shipping. All are microchipped, neutered/spayed, wormed and started on their basic kitten vaccinations. I have added the paypal link to the site for your security (you don't have to be a member it will take your credit card and you can check out as a guest). It is at the bottom of the opening page. Once a kitten is selected I do try and get you updated pictures every two weeks so you can see how much they change during this time but please remind me!
A deposit of 875.00 for a folded kitten and 375.00 for a perk eared kitten is required to hold your kitten. The deposit is nonrefundable. The remaining balance and shipping fees (400.00 via Delta/American/United) are due one week prior to the kitten leaving. Please remember that multiple people are looking at any given kitten at any time. I do not like to pressure you into committing to a certain kitten but cannot guarantee the kitten will be available without a deposit.
Once you decide to make a deposit for a kitten I will need:
• Submit completed contract (located on the website)
• Full name
• Mailing address
• Phone numbers
• Preferred airport (if shipping is needed)
• Your paypal contact information (if different than above)
Then please remind me every 2 weeks and I will get updated pictures! I generally find they go home between 9-11 weeks of age. Great time to bond with the family and you get to enjoy the young kitten phase also!
Shipping in the Continental United States is done via Delta, American or United which is 400.00. (this includes the health papers, crate, bed, flight and trip to the airport) I do all the arrangements you just have to pick him/her up at the airport. Two kittens can travel in the same crate for an extra 50.00 to cover larger crate and extra airline cost. The other options are to drive and pick your kitten up. If you need a crate set up for the trip home with litter pan etc, the cost runs 75.00 and i will have everything ready. When shipping times comes please remember that we have to be patient and work around the weather.
I try and keep the website up to date and kittens pictures updated every 2 weeks. If i have fallen behind please just contact me and i will get the updated pictures taken! 2019 Has Gorgeous New Kittens Arriving for the Spring! First Pictures are taken around 3 to 4 weeks after they are born. What a great time of the year!
