Our goal is to bring into your family, another member. That is why we work extra hard at socializing all our British Shorthair 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. British Shorthair 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 British Shorthair 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 kittens run 1500.00 for females and 2000.00 for the males. All are micro chipped, neutered/spayed, wormed and started on their basic kitten vaccinations. The deposit to hold one is 750.00 and 1000.00 depending on female or male. The balance and shipping fee 450.00 via American is due before they join the family. (At this time 2021 American is the only airline allowing pets to fly alone. This might change as time goes on. You will have to pick the kitten up at the airport but I do all the travel arrangements. We have to be flexible and work around weather and limited flights. I can only do one connection so that can be a problem into some airports as it temperatures) I have added the papal 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). 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!
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)
Shipping in the Continental United States is done via American which is 450.00. (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. When shipping times comes please remember that we have to be patient and work around the weather.
2020 Note: Because of the COVID Restrictions at this time with travel and Limited Airline Flights
As of May 2020 the only cargo shipping that I can do is with American and One Connection Only: I fly out of Little Rock AR.
Other then that the other airlines have embargo's on them At this time.
I just bumped into an opportunity to have them hand carried from LIT to your airport. You would still
Have to meet Cristian at the airport so he can catch the next flight home. This is a option until normal airline flights and services resume. This will also be a choice moving forward even when flights are back.
Cristian’s Flight Nanny Service is Available: Cost is 1000.00. I will arrange the details with Cristian. We just have to work around his schedule.
