ABOUT OUR KITTENS:
Each kitten is vaccinated for
Rhinotracheitis, Calici, Panleukopenia virus (FVRCP).
All kittens are vaccinated for FVRCP at 8 and 12
weeks. Rabies is recommended after 4 months,
according to your state laws. We do not
recommend the Feline Leukemia or FIP vaccines,
since neither is necessary for indoor-only cats.
Kittens must be spayed or neutered by 6 months
of age, kept indoors, and NO declawing.
We are proud that we have our own dedicated
cardiologist who practices at Med Vet Ohio. Our
breeding cats are screened annually for HCM
(Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and checked via x
ray for Hip Dysplasia. Screening via
echocardiogram for HCM is currently the ONLY
recommended method to screen against this
disease. Our cats are also DNA negative for the
one known DNA marker identified for HCM. We
cannot guarantee that a cat will never have this
condition, but we are dedicated to making every
effort to ensure we have healthy kittens. Please
be aware of breeders who say that they DNA
test only. This is not proper screening
for this disease. ECHOCARDIOGRAM is the only
method of detection.
If you are interested in adopting a kitten from Highlander Maine Coons, please feel free call/text (614)266-3502 or e mail firstname.lastname@example.org. When you contact us, we let you know the dates of upcoming litters, give you information about the sire and dam, and tell you how to reserve a space on our waiting list if you are serious about securing a kitten from a specific breeding.
Pet kittens are $1200. NOTE: **If you want a top show quality kitten, or first litter pick the price is $1500.
This is a hobby for us as we do work outside of the home. When we are home, all my time is devoted to the care of my cats, raising the kittens, and attending or judging cat shows on the weekends. I do not keep a waiting list but I will take pre-reservations with a $50.00 check that is held, not cashed for future litters. If you would like to place a hold deposit, please contact us.
A $300.00 deposit is required to hold your selection once the kittens arrive. Our kittens are not considered adopted until we receive your reservation deposit and the signed deposit agreement is returned.
DEPOSITS ARE NON REFUNDABLE
Our contract requires that our cats be kept indoors, not be declawed and be spayed/neutered within a specific time frame.
Our kittens come with a 1 year genetic health guarantee, two initial immunizations, worming, a 30 day free health care plan, and a health record at the time of adoption.
Our kittens are ready to go to their new homes at twelve weeks of age. We do not ship pet kittens. You must pick your kitten up at our home so we can meet you in person and you can see your new baby. We also can arrange a meeting spot if necessary but we prefer you visit our home to pick up your kitten. We do have hand carry transport services that we use that may be an option for you.
ODE TO A
I love my little kitty, she makes
my house a home.
She always is my best friend, I
never feel alone.
She makes me smile, she makes me
She fills my heart with love ...
Did some breeder breed her, or did
she fall down from above?
I've never been a breeder, seen
life through their eyes,
I hold my little kitty and just
sit and criticize.
I've never known their anguish,
I've never felt their pain,
The caring of their charges,
through snow or wind and rain.
I've never sat the whole night
through, waiting for babies to be
The stress and trepidation when
they're still not there by dawn.
I've never felt the heartache, of
a little life in my hands,
This darling little baby, who
weighs but 60 grams.
Should you do that instead of this
....or this instead of that,
Alone you fight, and hope one day,
he'll grow to be a cat,
and bring joy to another being,
and make a house a home,
You know it's all just up to you,
you'll fight this fight alone.
Formula, bottles, heating pads,
you've got to get this right,
Two hourly feeds for this tiny
guy, throughout the day and night.
In your heart you know, you're
almost sure to lose the fight,
to save this little baby, but God
willing ... you just MIGHT.
Day one he's in there fighting,
you say a silent prayer,
Day two & three, he's doing well,
with lots of love and care.
Day four & five ... he's still
alive, your hopes soar to the
Day six he slips away again, dies
in your hands day seven.
You take this little angel, and
bury him alone,
With aching heart and burning
tears, and an exhausted groan,
You ask yourself "Why do this? ...
why suffer all this pain?"
But see the joy your kittens
bring... it really self explains.
So, when you think of breeders and
label them with "greed",
Think about what they endure to
fill another's need.
When you buy a kitten and with
your precious dollars part,
You only pay with money ... we pay
with our heart.
