5. How can I reserve a kitten?

Check the available kittens page first, if the kitten is marked as:

Available: Kittens are ready to go in a week. We require $300 non-refundable deposit to secure the kitten and pick up within a week.

Available For Reservation: Kittens were already born and will be ready to go in a few weeks. We require $300 non-refundable deposit to secure a kitten of your choice. Please confirm the timing of pick-up and talk to your family, landlord, flatmates beforehand.

If there's no kitten available (for reservation), you can consider going on our paid waiting list to secure next available one.

Do not make enquries on kittens that are marked as:

Sold: the kitten has gone to new home already

Reserved: the kitten is spoken for and deposit received

Waiting for confirmation: there is plenty people on waiting list and we are waiting for confirmation

Under Observation: we need more time to decide if we will keep the kitten with us or not

6. How can I go on a waiting list?

If there is no kittens available but there is a planned litter that suits your timing and meets your preferences of colours, you can tell us what you are looking for (colour, gender, which litter, timing, personality etc) and we can put you on our paid waiting list with $300 non-refundable deposit received.

We will estimate the number of kittens (and colours) in a litter and the list will be closed once we feel it reaches the limit. By doing so, we try to avoid endless waiting time for a kitten.

Please understand we can calculate the odds but the reality sometimes gives us surprises. So when you tell us your preferences, please let us know if you are open to gender or colour etc as there will be more choices and it will shorten the waiting time. Introduce yourself and the family so we can give suggestions and try our best to meet your family needs.

First come first serve applies: For each litter, the owners on our paid waiting list will be able to pick their kitten via photos, videos or video chat when they are 6-10 weeks old. Most of kittens can go to new homes 13-16 weeks old.

If you are not satisfied with the litter, or there is any change in plan, please notify us immediately when we reach out to you, so we have plenty of time to find a new home for the kitten. You can of course wait for the next litter available. A paid deposit will help to lock your price for 3 times, after that price will be fluctuate as normal.


7. Can I visit your cattery?

Due to privacy issues and health concerns, we no longer open our homes to random visitors.

Sophie works full time and Emily is a first time mum. We both have our own busy life - raising cats and kittens are just our hobbies and we wanted to retain some privacy. Our cats' health and happiness are our first priority and we will not expose them to any unknown risks.

For buyers, we can provide photos/videos of parents and kittens or arrange a live video chat to help you decide.

For owners, we will update you with videos of your kitten weekly or fortnightly until they are ready to go home.

We show some of our cats regularly. If you'd like to meet our cats or kittens or talk to us in person, please check with us which show we are going and we are happy to meet you there.


8. Do you sell for breeding/registered breeders?
Yes, but only to knowledgable, ethical and registered breeders that share same values with us.

For golden shaded colours, we are happy to swap bloodlines with breeders specialised in such colours.
