    Health testing

    What health, virus/ parasite ect testing should be done before a new cat is allowed to be removed from quarantine? We had issues in 2019 with a new boy bringing mycoplasma with him (which turned into an absolute nightmare). We will be welcoming a new girl in the near future and I would like to...

    pyometra in breeding cats

    Have any breeders had this happen to one of your girls? If you have, how did your she recover? Were there any additional complications? Was it opened or closed pyometra? One of my girls is currently at the emergency vet awaiting surgery for open pyometra. The surgery was supposed to be done...

    Newly agressive stud boy

    I am current on my way to the emergency vet. My normally docile and friendly stud boy, whom normally gets along with everyone, snapped and attacked not one but two of the other cats. I don't know what the hell is going on. I made an appointment last week to have him neutered on the 28th. A few...

Kitten to me looks like a solid (not tabby marking/striping on the face, which you usually see in lynx and flame points) blue point from the grainy picture that I saw on social media.

    Non-refundable deposits

    Breeders: Do you require people to give a non-refundable deposit to hold a kitten? Do you require a deposit once they have picked their kitten, or just to be put on your waitlist? How much and what are the stipulations surrounding the deposit? Do you find that taking a non refundable deposit...

I woke up yesterday morning to find one of seven, 5 day old kittens was lethargic, gums pale and had lost 9 grams over night. Previously the kitten was active and gaining...

    Thoughts?

    So a few months ago I brought home a new stud boy that ended up with conjunctivitis and tested positive for mycoplasma after doing a full respiratory PCR panel. Very very long story some what short, during his quarantine period he was accidentally exposed to one of my queens. She ended up with...

    My Nightmare

    I posted this in the health forum as well, but because I am a breeder I suppose I should ask here as well. I recently purchased a new kitten in the hope of retiring my current stud whom doesn't seem to be loving the stud life. Kitten was placed into quarantine as soon as we brought him home...

    Has any one had a cat test positive for herpes, chlamydia, calicivirus or any other URI that had no other symptoms other than conjunctivitis (one eye red/swollen with a slight discharge, no lesions or ulcers seen when dye was administered)? Cat had no other symptoms. No sneezing, mouth lesions...

    Newborn Kitten No Noise

    So my cat Tula gave birth to 3 kittens yesterday, two girls and a boy. Seriously odd question; but has any one ever had a newborn kitten that didn't make any noise? I am hoping that it just means that he is going to be a super laid back people oriented kind of cat, but it's freaking me out a...

    Microchipping Canada

    My mentor has her vet do the microchips (she said the cost is about $45 per kitten at her vet which is like 3 hours away). My vet charges me $70+ tax per kitten to microchip. Which is quite expensive (he offered to show me how to do it properly should I decide to chip them myself) I was...

    Kittening Pens

    Does any one use a kittening pen? One to contain the queen for birthing and then to contain the kittens once they get more mobile? I was setting up at least 5 different nests in my bedroom so my queens could choose which one they would like. Unfortunately my bed seems to be a popular spot for...

    Cheapest Place To Buy Tiki Cat Canada

    Hi! Does any one know the cheapest place either online or in store to buy Tiki cat in Canada (I am in Ontario)? Prefer the after dark collection because I find most of the others are very fish/ seafood heavy. I sometimes get it from Ren's pets, but they don't have much of a variety. I just...

    Fleas!!

    Long story short, my dog ended up with fleas (because I forgot to use the advantage that I purchased). I have a nursing mom and 6 kittens and up until today (I have been flea combing everyone every day) they had been clean. I found one flea on one kitten. None on mom (which I am not sure how...

    Mom Moving One Kitten

    I called my breeding mentor, but some times it takes a while for her to get back to me. So I thought I would ask here, because you lovely people are usually pretty quick to reply and I am freaking out a little. My queen just had her second litter on the 18th (all my cats are registered and...

    Adopters

    How do you screen your potential adopters? What questions do you ask? (I have a long list of questions that I ask people, just wondering if maybe there are questions that are important that I have missed) In the beginning my mentor warned me to be careful, that she and other breeders have had...

    Tip Of Tail Fell Off

    My cat gave birth 6 weeks ago, the day after they were born I noticed one of the kittens had what looked like a ring around almost the middle of his tail. It looked as though some one had tried a string really tight around it to the point that it cut in, and it went right around in a perfect...
