Our kittens are descended from International Winners (IW), National Winners (NW) and Regional Winners (RW).
We have a new International Winner and Lifetime Achievement Award Winner, LA IW RW SGC Fenix Basement Jaxx who is bred into our lines now, and our friends at Cedarwood Cattery will continue to have some of his kittens available as pets and selectively to breeders.
We show our Abyssinians because we want to keep up with the standard as the judges and other breeders interpret it. We also enjoy seeing friends that we only get to see during a show. And it lets us interact with the public and show everybody in person how beautiful and wonderful cats Abyssinians are.
We are breeding for show quality Abyssinians from show or breeder quality cats so most of our kittens are also show quality although none are guaranteed to be. We do not price our kittens according to show quality or pet quality, but rather by color and rarity, and will work with you on discounts and rebates if you are serious about showing one of our Abyssinians.
Our kittens are usually sold as soon as they are available and often well in advance of their birth (we will refund the deposit if you want it back and haven't been offered an Aksum kitten within six months). Our kittens are picked up and petted and played with several times a day from the first minute they are born, and when they are big enough and have had their first vaccinations, are integrated into the group of cats in our bedroom and sleep with us and are socialized to live with people in harmony with them.
Like most responsible breeders, we do require that you fill out a Buyer Questionnaire via email. The questionnaire and deposit are required to be put on the waiting list for the next available kitten (in the order the deposit is received).
Aksum kittens may go to their new homes starting at 12 weeks old. We insist on indoor-only homes and no declawing in our written contract. The kittens come with their first two vaccinations (the last vaccination as a kitten needs to be at 16-18 weeks old), registration papers, and a five-generation pedigree. They will be already pediatrically spayed or neutered at our risk and expense if they are sold as a pet.
Our written contract has a health guarantee. Our kittens are guaranteed free of FeLV, FIP, ringworm, T. foetus, and other major diseases for seven days (requires vet diagnosis and test results), and from genetic diseases (requires UC Davis DNA testing results & vet and lab diagnosis) and FIP (requires formal necropsy and no FIP vaccine) for one year.
Transport of your kitten to you is extra and is usually $350 (East coast) to $550 (West coast) within the continental U.S., depending on how close to Atlanta you are. We ask that you pay the kitten handler directly or pay us in advance if we are transporting for you. We will transport for the cost of the airplane ticket plus the pet fee the airline charges, or gas money if we are driving to meet you (actual cost only). We encourage you to come pick up your kitten here at our home and even visit your kitten before he/she is ready to go. Visitors are *always* welcome here after the Buyer Questionnaire is filled out. The kitten handler/transporter acts as our agent. As a result, you can refuse the kitten at the time of transfer from the transporter if you feel the kitten is sick or not what you paid for.
We are available for advice for the lifetime of the kitten and we take this commitment very seriously. We also will take the kitten back if the new owner is no longer able to care for them at any time during their life, no questions asked, no blame. We really do mean this, have done it, and will always do it!
We rescue Abyssinians too and have a Petfinder account to help place them. We also are a part of a large network to help re-home into just the right home for them. Let us help you and them!!
We have 3 people on the Priority Waiting List now for 4 kittens (all want ruddy male kittens).
This list does NOT include breeders (including us - we/they *always* get first pick before the kittens are available to pet owners, so the breed can continue). We announce the available kittens as soon as we can after they are born, and after breeders have had their pick, if any.
When the kittens are born and have been evaluated for breeders, I will let the people know who have put down a deposit and are therefore on the Priority Waiting List. Meanwhile, lots of kitten pictures will be posted on this website and on our Facebook Page.
Current waiting list notes (updated August 26, 2015 ):
Sunrise is being treated and evaluated to see whether she will be having kittens or if she will instead be retired. She is healthy and happy, but hasn't gotten pregnant the last couple of times she has been bred, so we are investigating. Updates will be posted here as soon as we know something.
Cover Girl is a beautiful ruddy with a sweet personality. She was bred to our new stud boy Ace and her two kittens were born August 24, 2015 and will be available to go to their new homes November 16, 2015.
Enamorarse (nicknamed Nena) has now been spayed and will go soon to a loving pet home.
Dancer has now been spayed and retired and stays with us as our pet. She helps us greet visitors at the door now. :)
