Wait list is open for Does but Closed for Bucks
Please note in order to be put on the wait list or get kittens from me you need to fill in an application form.
Current Estimated time scale
Does 4 months Bucks 6 months
Due to number of people on it. This is from the moment you go on it to the date you take your kittens home.
The reason for the wait list is that I often don’t have litters all the time. I normally breed 2 or 3 litters at a time and sometimes I have breaks from breeding over summer and Christmas.
From mating it is about 23 days for litter to be born then a further 7 weeks minimum till kittens can go to new home so you looking at nearly 3 months.
Please note this is a hobby not a business and I often can not answer emails straight away. If you do not hear from me after a week please email again.

Also read What happens once the litter is born.
Please note I don’t breed hairless. The kittens available for homing are likely to be Black in Self, Roan and Striped Roan, Siamese Roan, Russian Blue Agouti and Agouti. The only dumbos I breed are Black Roans and Black Self. I am working on a line of Black Rex and Black Roan Rex. I am also working on Russian Silver Agouti which should also produce various blues including Russian Blue and British Blue. If there is only 1 type of variety you want then you may have to be on the waiting list for longer.
There is also small chance of getting Siamese, Siamese Roan, Himalayan, Powder Blue Roan, Berkshire, and Silver Fawn.
