Description
—————————————————— *Beautiful black and white British Shorthair cross female with a distinctive beauty mark. Likely to have the typical golden BS eyes. Ready within the next couple of week onwards for her forever home! This litter of kittens are incredibly special - please see more information below. ‘S’ had her first lot of injections a few days ago as well as a comprehensive health check with our vet and is doing well! She is litter trained and used to regular cat litter as well as wooden pellets. Eating very well and enjoying James Wellbeloved wet kitten food and Yora kitten kibble. Incredibly playful and used to a busy household. ‘S’ likes to snuggle up with her siblings, cat uncle and dog uncle, and would be well suited to a forever home with other pets and children. —————————————————— Hello! Our beautiful blue and ginger girl has now had her one and only litter of stunning kittens. We have four beautiful kittens who are a British Shorthair X British Longhair (Mum is shorthair, dad is longhair); The kittens are already well handled by myself, husband and my children, and are being brought up with our other (male) cat and our dog. Mum is absolutely amazing with them, and has already taught them a lot. They are cleaning themselves and each other, playing together, and attempting to walk. Unfortunately it was a turbulent start as mum had to go in for an emergency C-Section, and I had to feed them until they were strong enough to suckle from mum. All kittens are absolutely thriving now, and full of personality. This will be my queen's one and only litter. I am not a breeder - she is our family cat and I am not here to make a profit on these kittens - my aim is to cover my vet bill and to find true and genuine forever homes for these truly very special kittens. All kittens (and mum) were checked (and monitored) when born, and then checked at 1 week. They will go back to our vets at around 8 weeks for their first vaccinations, and will be ready to go to their forever homes between 8 - 12 weeks old (TBC nearer the time); meaning they will be likely to be ready during the Easter holidays (beginning of April). Available to reserve. Once reserved, I will send you regular updates of your kitten and arrange viewings, etc. I have a criteria of what I hope the new homes to offer. This by no means is meant to be discriminating - however I have seen so many adverts on here of people re-homing their young kittens / cats because of a landlord, etc. I am looking for a FOREVER home for these special kittens, so hope you can appreciate why I will ask if you can meet my criteria. If any documents are sent as proof, please blank out details I do not need to see. Potential homes I am looking for - will be owned (no rented accommodation please, I would like to feel reassured that these kittens will not have to be re-homed in the future) - will not be by a busy or main road These kittens are already very loved by us, and we are looking for the best homes for them. Thank you.

Buyer's checklist for cats and kittens

Before contacting or visiting the seller please make sure you have printed and read this checklist fully. Do NOT buy a cat or kitten from the seller unless you are happy that they follow all the advice on the list.

How to avoid scams

Keep communication on Pets4Homes

Keep communication on Pets4Homes

Bad actors want to move you to WhatsApp or text message. Use our secure chat service, except for video calls, and report any suspicious activity to us.

Don’t risk your money

Don’t risk your money

For puppies and kittens, use our Pet Payments service so you will be covered by the Pets4Homes Guarantee. It protects you and your pet against bad breeders and fraud. It also creates a paper trail to deter puppy farmers!

For other pets - never send a deposit unless you have viewed the pet at the seller's premises and are confident that the seller is genuine. You should always pay the final amount when you collect the pet, never before.

Do not share your ID

Buyer's checklist for cats and kittens

Be responsible, do your research!

Be responsible, do your research!

Getting a new cat or kitten is a massive commitment, so make sure you have researched the breed fully and have the time and commitment necessary to care for the cat. Do you have the right living conditions to have a cat? Most healthy cats would prefer to be able to go outside, but some prefer to live indoors. If you are keeping your cat indoors, please make sure that you can provide the cat with the opportunity to exhibit normal hunting behaviour. You can read our detailed Information guide about cats for potential new cat owners. Also read our Cat breed information profile.

Kittens must be viewed with their mother in the seller's home!

Kittens must be viewed with their mother in the seller's home!

Always view the kitten at the seller’s home with the kittens' mother. Do not accept any excuses for sending money without a viewing having taken place, or if the advertiser attempts to meet you at any other location than their own home. Unscrupulous sellers will often suggest another location to avoid showing the kitten’s true living conditions. Pets4Homes do not allow the third party sale of kittens. All litters of kittens advertised, MUST have been bred by the seller. Make sure that the interaction between the kitten and its mother is natural to avoid the setting being staged.

Health check & paperwork

Health check & paperwork

The seller should be willing to let you take the pet to a vet of your choice for a health check and return the pet within 48 hours for a full refund if there are health issues. If the kitten has already been health checked, make sure you have this documented and phone their vet. The vet may not be able to disclose specific health information due to GDPR, however they should confirm the kittens have been checked. When you meet the kitten, they should be sociable and alert, with bright eyes and no visible health issues.

Kittens should receive 2 vaccinations, the first at around 8 weeks of age and the second, two to three weeks later. Kittens should not be allowed outside until 7 days after their second injection. Cats should also receive a yearly vaccination booster. Ask the breeder which vaccinations they have had and if not, why not. If the seller has not started the kittens vaccinations, it will be your responsibility to make sure you arrange both vaccinations 7 days before letting your kitten go outside.Kittens should really be wormed at around 2 weeks of age, and again at around 5 weeks of age, and finally just before they leave the seller/breeder at 8 to 12 weeks of age.

Pets4Homes always recommend that you microchip your cat/kitten, especially if you have an outdoor cat. This provides a safe way of identification if the cat were to be lost. In December 2021 the government announced that they are set to introduce new rules saying that all pet cats over 20 weeks need to be microchipped. No dates when this is coming into effect have yet been announced.

Is the cat/kitten registered with the GCCF, TICA or FIFe? If they are, then check to make sure you are given the correct documents BEFORE you decide to take the cat home. It may also be worth phoning the organisation to check if the information provided is correct.

Report, don’t support!

Report, don’t support!

If you believe a kitten may be subject to irresponsible breeding, do not “rescue” the kitten by rehoming it. Walk away and report the seller to us immediately. You should also report your concerns directly to the local council as they have the authority to inspect the premises if there are any welfare concerns, and can take further action if required. We work closely with several local councils, trading standards and police forces and we are able to provide any account or advert details if requested and if a data protection request is sent to us. Find contact details to your local council.

For serious welfare and / or cruelty issues, please contact the RSPCA (England & Wales) on 0300 1234 999, or SSPCA (Scotland) on 03000 999 999 immediately.

Contract & Payment

Contract & Payment

Never send money outside of Pets4Homes unless you have viewed the pet (in person or virtually) and are confident that the seller is genuine. We strongly recommend you pay through Pets4Homes’ own payment service as you’ll be covered by the Pets4Homes Guarantee.

If you do decide to pay offline, always know you can walk away at any time if something sounds suspicious. And report the seller to us.

Kittens must be at least 8 weeks when collected

Kittens must be at least 8 weeks when collected

Kittens must be at least 8 weeks old and fully weaned before they can leave their mothers. Please make sure to check the paperwork to ensure the kitten is old enough. Most responsible sellers will keep their kittens longer than this before they let them go to new homes. Read further information on the minimum age kittens should be before leaving their mothers.

Get your cat insured!

Get your cat insured!

It’s worth looking into pet insurance before your pet arrives. Millions of pet owners get peace of mind from having insurance that can cover the cost of unexpected vet bills to treat accidents and illness.

Premiums can be less expensive for younger pets, and getting pet insurance early in their lives means they’re covered for conditions before they develop. If your pet develops an illness before you have insurance, it’s likely to be excluded, and you’d never be able to claim for it.
