About our American Bobtail kittens
Our American Bobtails come from championship lines, many of which are imported directly from the USA into Canada. Our cats are fully registered with TICA, and some, registered with CFA. All our cats are rigorously health tested and screened prior to acceptance in our home and breeding program. This includes blood tests, screening for FeLV and FIV, and Dna swab screening for a multitude of hereditary and genetic diseases (including, but not limited to PKD, and the two known/recognized genetic causes of HCM). We work with all colours of the American Bobtail in medium and long length coats. American Bobtail kittens can be born with all different tail lengths, from full length, to no tail at all. Tails can be knotted, kinked, curved, straight, and may have a fat pad at the tip. Each tail is unique!
Our kittens are raised underfoot, in our home. As they grow up with us, we ensure they are well socialized with other people, dogs, cats, and other pets. We feed a high quality and high protein diet to all our cats which includes raw, kibble, and canned foods. We firmly believe a natural and well-balanced diet is a crucial and imperative factor in health, development, and longevity.
We often travel by car with our cats and kittens, which helps them become comfortable with car rides by the age they are ready to leave to their new homes, as well as entering new home environments that are new to them. We do our best to teach them basic manners, such as to stay off the counters and not to beg for your food while they are in our care. Our cats come from champion blood lines, and are fully registered. We often will have pet, and occasionally show alters available. Breeding cats will only be available to those who have a registered cattery and have some experience with showing a purebred pedigree cat.
The adoption fees of our American Bobtail kittens are based on individual kitten quality and conformation to the breed standard. Adoptions fees of our Bobtail kittens range from 1,250 – 1,500.
We require a non-refundable deposit of $300 to reserve bobtail kittens which is applied entirely to the adoption fee.

They come from an extremely clean environment, and use the litter box extremely well. They do well in the car & are weaned onto a high quality, hard, kitten food. We often have all different tail lengths, coat colors, and hair lengths. Our kittens can leave to their new homes at 10 to 12 weeks of age.
