THE PROCESS

Getting your kitten ready for its new adventure...


Please don't be alarmed if we ask you questions about yourselves and the home you can provide because we only want 5* homes for all our kittens. They come with a neutering contract which has to be adhered to, as all our kittens are sold to pet homes only. Neutering is a standard practice at 6 months old and a copy of the surgery notes can be emailed to us, to complete the records our end.


I am happy to discuss Pedigree papers on Active to the right person but this is a long process of evaluation to ensure my standards are kept up going forward onto future kittens. 

Each kitten is seen by a veterinary practitioner (click here to see our vet!) when 5 days old with the mother to check everything is how it should be. Further heath checks are at 5 weeks and then again at 7 weeks.
They will have a regular worming medication called Panacur administered at 2, 4 and 6 weeks of age. A Stronghold medication for all worming with Flea, tick and earmite prevention with be given at 8 weeks and then soon after this the kitten is ready for their new home!


None of my kittens will go without this and wont leave their mother until after 8 weeks old, if I see they are ready for their new adventure.  Some kittens need a bit more time with their Mum and I evaluate each kittens individual needs as they grow and develop.

The kitten can go with or without vaccinations.  They can go after 8 weeks old should they be well socialised and fully weaned, this is individually accessed as mentioned above. Otherwise, I can keep with the mother and have a vaccination at 9 and then 12 weeks old and go to their new home shortly after this. Either is fine and it's a personal preference to what you want but I strongly recommend if you take your kitten at 8 weeks old you vaccinate yourself as is a crucial part of the kittens wellbeing.

I have 20 years of veterinary experience for which I can help to prevent and cure illnesses should the need arise.  There are many home remedies that I have tried and tested that can be done before going to the vets and I can advise with the help of my vet throughout your cats life with which route to go down. 

Before going to it's new home each kitten will be:

  • Fully litter trained

  • Scratch post trained

  • Eating wet & dry food

  • Worm & Flea free
