I live in Largo, Florida which is on the west coast of Florida and to the west of Tampa Bay. Go, Tampa Bay Buccaneers!!!
I am an "In Home" cattery. My cats pretty much have the run of the house. I have added a sunroom just for the pleasure of my kitties...My kittens are born in a birthing box or closet or somewhere right in my home. Absolutely NO CAGES are used ... By handling them everyday from the day that they are born, they are a much more social and affectionate kitten when they are older.
I am licensed by the county that I live in and have an inspection twice a year I have always passed with flying colors.
My kittens see my vet at about 10 weeks of age. They get their first kitten shot and general checkup and get all the tests that are required by the State of Florida. This includes the test for Feline leukemia and Feline Aids. A fecal test is also done to assure of no internal parasites. All of these tests are noted on a Health Certificate which will come with every kitten. Your kitten is deemed healthy but I always give you the option of having your own vet check out your kitten within 3 days of receiving your kitten. Then you can be reassured by your own vet that you have a purrfectly healthy kitten.
I will ship your kitten using United Airlines .. They have an awesome "Pet Safe" program and handle the pets with great care...
I have been breeding for about 17 years now and have had a great deal of help from my mentor and friend Margie Gardner at Creators Cattery. I purchased most all of my cats from her and she has helped me tremendously through the years. I caution you to be very careful of buying over the internet when you can't see the actual cattery and how the cats are raised. Please visit my "Letters from Buyers" pages to read about others who have gotten kittens from my Cattery...
