Kittens will not leave before 11-12 weeks of age there are NO EXCEPTIONS
I Do Not Sell Breeders. All Kittens are Spayed/Neutered before they Leave the Cattery.
We will place our cats only with people who agree not to declaw Bareenough Sphynx & Lykoi kittens, and will only keep the cats indoors and never cage them.
SHIPPING- I do not ship cargo. I use a courier who will meet you at your closest major airport for $500.00 any where in the US. You pay the courier once she meets you with your kittens. Cargo shipping has become very expensive with all the airline requirements ect and it is not safe. There is no temerature regulations in cargo and it stresses the kittens out.
PICK-UP- You can fly into my nearest airport (Ontario, California) and I will meet you there with your kitten. Remember the airlines charge a fee for you to fly back with your kitten and you will need an airline approved carrier.
Care and Maintenance Sphynx maintenance is rather unlike other cats. Sphynx sweat, their skin secretes oils to nourish the non-existent coat, so they need occasional bathing, ear cleaning and you need to keep the area around their eyes clean. Bathing is not a problem-most Sphynx cats don't mind it and they dry quickly. As long as they are fed well and the air temperature is comfortable for you, Sphynx cats are not cold. But they like warmth and are smart enough to find it on your lap or under a blanket. My Sphynx have no problem letting me put on a sweater to keep them warm.
Lykoi do not require the bathing but do need the occasional ear cleaning. Special organics shampoos are sent home with Sphynx and Lykoi kittens unless otherwise indicated (I don't send the shampoos/sprays home with retired breeders or any discounted kittens/cats)
In this day and age, inviting people into your home can be quite dangerous. There are many anti-breeder and animal rights activists 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 Monday-Friday working lives. 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’re 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.
