Retirees

Occasionally we get some some cats that don’t work out for our program in the end. Prices will vary for these cats depending on age, quality, and health.

Just like our kittens, we will require an approved application for us to consider rehoming one of our retirees to you. Please specify in the application which retiree(s) your are applying for, on the last question about additional information. Or you can send us a message if you are already on the kitten waitlist and interested in a retiree. Thanks!

Summer is a gorgeous, incredibly sweet girl. She loves people and getting attention. She is very much a lap cat and likes to sit on our desks and purr while we work. She does not love other cats but doesn’t seem to mind dogs.

Update April 6th: After a few weeks of “introduction therapy”, Summer is getting along well with our other Queens. While we cannot guarantee what the length of time will be for her to get used to possible other pets in her forever home, this is very promising for Summer’s future furry friend social life.

Summer failed our program qualifications because she arrived much smaller than she looked in pictures we were sent, and had an inguinal hernia, which as you can imagine is not suitable for breeding both because of the genetic risk to kittens and because of the pressure pregnancy would put on her abdomen. The hernia has been repaired and Summer has gained weight since being with us. She is spayed and ready for a new home.

Artemis

Red Classic Tabby Girl Born February 28th 2023

*Artemis is now in her new home!*

  • Heart Echocardiogram: Passed

  • Respiratory PCR: Passed
  • CatScan Genetic Panel: Passed

You will not find a more outgoing and loving girl than Artemis. I would describe her as “aggressively loving”, not in the sense that she hurts us or is mean at all, but that she will force you to give her attention by head-butting you and stand on her back legs to be picked up. Artemis also gets along with our other cats. It’s impossible not to love her, and we are devastated to have had to make the decision to fail her from our program.

When Artemis was shipped in, the courier gave her large dog food kibble instead of cat food for her 4 day journey. She cracked her front left canine tooth on it. We are very upset about this of course, but not much to be done except fix it. The tooth has been pulled and Artemis is back to eating with no pain.

Artemis failed our program qualifications because she got an ear infection. Ear infections in cats are not normal, and as our vet has explained they can be genetic. I remember getting ear infections myself as a kid and most of my siblings ended up with them around the same age as well. We don’t want to create kittens that will also get ear infections. Artemis also got a goopy left eye (conjunctivitis) for a while, after a couple vet visits and resolution attempts we finally got it to go away with some antibiotic eye gel. Her eye (and ear) is all better now and shouldn’t require further care.
