What is a "micro" kitten?

The term ‘micro’ is used to describe the size of any kitten that will measure 8" to 10" at the shoulder and will weigh 4 to 7 lbs or less when fully grown.

 

I‘ve heard that micro kittens don’t actually exist. Is there any truth to this claim?

No there isn't, micro kittens do exist! Micro does NOT mean your kitten will fit in your hand forever. Teacup and micro are terms used to describe a breed of kittens that are much smaller than typical cats, which weigh approximately 8-10 lbs or more full grown. To assure the size of our kittens we've been selectively breeding fully matured cats between the ages of 2 and 4 years old that weigh 4 to 7 lbs or less.  Our teacup kittens stay around half the size of a typical house cat. 

Are micro kittens unhealthy?

 

Absolutely not. Due to how small these kittens are, they are more delicate than the larger breeds, and require special attention. Due to their miniature size, it is important to watch them carefully during the first few months of their lives to make sure they are eating well and staying warm. Our kittens are fully weaned around 10 to 12 weeks. By this time, their immunity is strong and they're ready for a forever home.

 

Do your kittens have all their shots?

 

All of our kittens vaccinations are up to date according to age and weight. Each kitten receives their first round of shots at approximately 6 to 8 weeks of age before finding their forever home. When the kittens reaches 8 to 10 weeks he/she will receive their second round of shots. After this, your kitten will need yearly booster shot. Also, all of our kittens are wormed every 4 to 6 weeks.

How old does he/she have to be to take home?

 

Our kittens vary in age, but they must be at least 10 to 12 weeks old before they can go home. Ideally, a kitten spends the first 10 to 12 weeks of life being nursed by its mother and is weened when its teeth have come in and he or she is able to eat solid food. It mainly depends on the delicateness of the kitten, whether he/she is ready to go home or not. We only sell kittens once they have shown they are healthy, strong, and ready to go home with a loving caretaker or family.

 

What is the average lifespan of micro kittens?

On average the lifespan of a micro kitten is around 13 to 17 years.

Can you house train your micro kitten?

Absolutely! Cats are one of the easiest animals to potty train. Kittens can be indoor or outdoor potty trained. For indoor training we recommend a small litter box. In fact, most of our kittens are already potty trained before they find their forever homes!

How much does each kitten cost?

All of our kittens are individually priced according to breed, size, gender, and desirable traits. Our micro sized kittens typically range from $750 to $950 or more. 

 

Do you offer reservations?

 

Yes, we do offer reservations for a $100 non-refundable deposit . If you are interested in a teacup kitten for sale you may contact us to set an appointment for a consultation to meet him or her.

Do you allow visits before purchasing a kitten?

 

 Of course, anyone is welcome to set an appointment to visit our facility and hand pick their kitty before any deposit is given, to assure you get the kitty of your dreams!

Do you ship your kittens?

Due to their tiny size all kittens must be picked up in person. However, we do offer hand delivery services.
