Our program is focused on producing the highest-quality domesticated minskin cats, achievable because of our unique combination of knowledge base, education pertinent to this field and years of experience deciphering what genetic combinations work best to set the standard. Our program has been built on a strong academic foundation in animal science, nutrition, genetics and research. With every new generation of matings, our program moves up in excellence. We are a forward-thinking, innovative, TICA registered cattery.
Our top priority is the well-being and health of our minskin kittens and cats. To support this, we have spared no expense in building a state-of-the art facility unique to any in the world. While some breeders like to portray a “warm and fuzzy” image by suggesting kittens are “raised under foot,” we strive to maintain a heightened standard of cleanliness and a healthy environment in a cattery designed specifically to facilitate these efforts and protocols. To balance our strict protocols, we have elicited the expertise of an animal behavior professional in socializing kittens on a daily basis. While our minskin kittens are exposed to other animals before leaving us, they are in the company of a range of people to ensure that no matter what kind of home environment they go to, they will be able to relate to all.
Based on our health guarantee, our kitten come with a health history is given at time of sale. The kitten are usually vaccinated against Feline Rhinotracheitis & Calci Virus, Pneumonitis and Rabies. Before sending our kittens to the buyer, it is is usually vet-checked and given its first series of the Distemper shots. Although It is up to the buyer to choose whether or not to vaccinate additionally with the FeLV vaccine after when a kitten is received, however this is not recommended except approved by a licensed vet technician. Our kitten is guaranteed FeLV & FIV free at the time of purchase. As a result of using these precautionary measures, there has never been any clinical evidence of common kitten diseases as certified by our exclusive veterinarian, Dr. Lincoln Peterson.
We require all our kittens to undergo an extensive health check before they come home to you. This health check is performed by our vet, who is required to fill out our Veterinary Health Report. This report, created for us by a licensed veterinarian, is designed to examine the condition of every kitten for: Cardiovascular, Skin, Coat, Eyes, Mouth, Teeth, Gums, Musculoskeletal, Respiratory, Ears, Urogenital and Gastrointestinal.
Don’t assume that the lack of hair means that Minskins don’t require much grooming. They are hypoallergenic and rarely shed, but their exposed skin means that they have to have regular baths using a gentle soap Most vets recommend bathing them once every two to three weeks and avoiding hair dryers, so you don’t hurt their sensitive skin. Keep in mind that too many baths could dry them out and cause dermatitis Keep up on other aspects of grooming with a Minskin, like clipping their toenails once every 10 to 14 days or as often as necessary. If you do want to brush their fur patches, use a soft-bristle brush to do so.
