Sparrow's Nightmares leave our cattery
earliest at the age of 14 to 16 weeks with a personal, up to
date health certificate showing their chip number. Each baby is
tested for Leukose and FIV - if desired we will also do
a FIP screening (laboratory blood test by Laboklin). All our
babies are completely inoculated, early spayed/early
neutered and micro-chipped - if desired also
tattooed. We will bring them personally to their new homes. They
will come with protection contracts and copies of their
parents´test certificates (HCM (echo & DNA), PKD
vaccinations for our cats and kittens are administered several times a
year exclusively in our home allowing our veterinarian, the animal
clinic Eimbeckhausen, full access into the habitat and surroundings as
well as offering an honest insight of the living and health conditions
of our cattery. The additional advantage of such home visits is a
relaxed initial vet introduction in a stress free environment
which usually carries over to any future vet visits.
Our kittens are strictly indoor cats.
If, however, you can provide them with a secure outdoor run, they will
surely appreciate the fresh air.
So far - from 1999 to 2013 -
we have given our babies exclusively into pet-loving homes.
In the future we are prepared to consider
selling selected kittens to responsible breeders.
However, we will always prefer giving our babies to pet homes.
only give kittens for breeding to breeders who
have their (chipped!) breeding cats tested regularly for (at
least) HCM and can give us appropriate references for a fair and
affectionate attitude towards their animals. They have to be
members of a cat club! We expect the new owner/s
to be prepared to keep in contact with us in the interest of
the cat entrusted to them, as well as the acceptance of special
contracts, which will permit only a limited number of
the cat´s offspring to go to other breeders.
We do not
give kittens to breeders who having "used" their
breeding cats, will sell them for "further
production" to other catteries!
