In this day and age , inviting people into your home can be quite dangerous. There are many anti breeder animal rights activists and thieves out there and we do not want to risk the safety of our family or pets. We limit visits as much as possible for several reasons . Breeding is not our job but rather a getaway from our primary business. Therefore , as you can imagine our time is limited and precious to us.
We do not provide allergy visits, as each cat/kitten has their own level of dander and you may be allergic to one cat over another. Nor do we allow visits to come pick out a kitten or just to come look at the cats. When you are asking to visit our " cattery " you are asking to visit our home, where we live with our family and children. Visitors are pretty invasive in our daily life and strangers in the house can be extremely stressful for the kittens when they hear and smell things unknown to them, and their mothers who are very protective of their youngsters especially with strangers. Young kittens are extremely vulnerable to airborne diseases and their mother's stress.
Therefore we limit visitors to people who come pick their kitten up. That doesn't mean we have anything to hide, it means we take the utmost precautions for our own and our cats and kitten's sake. We are always happy to meet you at a show. We sometimes go to shows and bring several of our cats and kittens with us. We also can have video live conferences where you can where the cats are living and what parents look like. We also have many references available from people who have been at our house and from friends and fellow breeders that you can ask questions if you have any doubts.
