Currently, due to a very large number of requests, the adoption procedure is arranged as follows:

You can subscribe now to the Newsletter by filling in the form (link to the newsletter). By this way, you will be informed about all the news concerning future litters, as well as the progress of our contemporary cat furniture line.

There is therefore no waiting list at the moment.

The reservation of a kitten

When the litters are born, you can contact me by email for the available kittens. I will call you to get acquainted and put the kitten in option until the reservation appointment. Normally, the reservation is made on site. It’s a friendly moment of exchange and information about your project. It is also the opportunity to show you the health tests of the breeders. It is concretized by the signature of a reservation contract. Nevertheless, arrangements may occur due to the pandemic caused by the COVID 19 virus.

After the birth of the kittens, the prices will be communicated to you and established taking into account a certain number of criteria: colors of the kittens, destination company or reproduction, adoption in France or abroad, price with or without transport. Each kitten is unique, each adoption project is also unique.

Kittens are essentially intended to be pets. A pet is intended to share your daily life, not to reproduce. Indeed, breeding is a profession. For a request for a kitten intended for reproduction, please contact me indicating the nature of your project as a professional breeder. I would be delighted to study your project.

The health of kittens

The health of our cats and kittens is a priority. Since the beginning, I have been working closely with the Elysée Clinic at La Celle Saint-Cloud (Yvelines, France).

The veterinarian Caroline De Ponnat and her team of veterinarians and veterinary assistants allow me to manage the different breeding subjects: consultations, surgery, health monitoring of cats and kittens, monitoring of gestations, vaccination and identification of kittens, ultrasound, radiological and blood tests, health visit of the cattery… She closely follows my cats, births and kittens until their departure.

The kittens leave the house between 2 and a half months (for France) and 3 and a half months (for abroad) with a current LOOF pedigree request.

They are identified by microchip at 8 weeks old during a first veterinary visit. The identification is made by means of last generation chips, the Thermoship, which allows to take the kitten’s temperature for a more precise health follow-up.

Kittens are dewormed between the 2 veterinary visits. The first vaccination injection (Typhus Coryza) is made at the second visit, with the delivery of a veterinary certificate detailing the kitten’s state of health.

I always discuss with the adoptive parents about the protocols to be put in place regarding deworming, flea and tick prevention, the vaccination recall and the additional vaccinations to be done according to the cat’s lifestyle in its new family.

I would like to remind you that vaccination is essential to protect your kitten against certain diseases. Unfortunately, it is not a risk-free act for young kittens. The protocol is therefore done in close collaboration with the veterinarian and the future adopter.

I also recommend that kittens be sterilized before their puberty, generally between the ages of 6 and 8 months depending on their sex and size. The adopter must therefore get closer to his veterinarian to organize this intervention at the ideal time.

On the day of the kitten’s departure, the adopters receive a set of documents:

  • the contract

  • the health record

  • the kitten’s identification card

  • the current pedigree application to the LOOF

  • instructions on the kitten’s needs

  • the copy of certain tests

  • the veterinary certificate

  • the breed notice and needs of cat

  • the feeding instructions for the kitten’s litter

  • advice on toxic products: plants, food…

This list is not exhaustive.

The first steps in your home

Between the reservation of your kitten and his arrival at your home, I will have communicated to you the precise composition of its trousseau.

It is composed of 2 things:

  • the food: a brand of first age croquettes and a first age food. Your kitten must have permanent and unlimited access to its dry food and water bowls.

  • the accessories necessary for your kitten’s well-being: carrier bag, toilet bag, litter box, scratching post, cat tree, toys, toilet utensils…

The arrival at your home is a difficult moment for him. He leaves his mother and his brothers and sisters, he does not know you and does not know your home. He needs landmarks and to be reassured. This is why he needs to find at home what he is used to eat as well as what is indispensable for his well-being.

He must also be in a room with you for the first few days because he does not know your house. He will discover it a few days after his installation when he is relaxed.

During these first days, I will be kept informed of his progress and will answer all your questions. I appreciate receiving regular news and pictures of your kittens.
