Your new kitten will go home with some of his/her current food. You should bring a carrier. Kittens make better pets when they have had more time with their mother to learn how to behave with people and other animals. Kittens are usually 14-16 weeks when they are ready for placement. Please prepare an inside area for your kitten. Egyptian Maus can run 35 miles an hour, so allowing them outside may mean that you lose your pet -- not to mention that outside cats can be endangered by motor vehicles, diseases/fights with other cats, and predators. Furthermore, our contract will include a clause against declawing. The kitten will be altered before leaving our cattery.
Our cattery is located in Southeast TN. By texting ahead --(423)716-7678 -- you may plan a visit. If you do not choose one of our babies, I strongly encourage you to visit any cattery you are considering before paying a deposit. Delivery costs are not included in the cost for the kitten. I do not ship. Some families choose to fly someone out (CHA is the Chattanooga Airport a bit over 1 hr. away) and bring the kitten back as a carry on. We can meet you at the Chattanooga airport if you do not wish to inspect our home where we raise our Maus. Car travel is better for kittens if possible. I do not deliver kittens, and I cannot drive more than an hour from my home to meet you - my apologies.
Answers to Common Questions
Can I have a kitten that is whole (not spayed or neutered)?
As I suspect your family vet will tell you, spayed or neutered cats make much better pets as their personalities will be more family-oriented. Unaltered males will likely spray, have foul-smelling urine, and be anxious to travel to "find love." Unaltered females are at risk for deadly infections if left in heat too long. We alter before placing kittens.
What precautions are you taking for the Corona Virus?
We ask that visitors mask in our home as a precaution. We will also mask for your safety. We do not have a separate business area; you'll just be visiting our home, but if one of us were to be exposed to the virus, we would quarantine and let you know. We are very careful about avoiding large crowds, but I'm a teachers with about 75 students. I have been vaccinated.
After hearing from several prospective pet parents who wish to know with certainty that they can receive a kitten from us without fighting the "kittens have been born" rush, we have decided to take deposits on future litters. Those with deposits paid will be contacted in the order that they paid their deposits for kitten choice. I cannot guarantee that a specific color/gender/set of matched siblings will be born in a specific litter. I cannot guarantee that a planned breeding will result in a viable pregnancy (although it usually does). Feel free to contact God for any such guarantees ;)
Keep in mind, we are not a kitten mill, and we breed selectively to produce well-socialized, healthy kittens without the inbreeding issues that are so prevalent. We usually have 1-2 litters a year.
To reserve a future kitten, you may pay a deposit of $300 for a smoke or $500 for a silver. The deposit is not refundable, but if a litter is born at a time that is inconvenient for you or does not have the sex or color combination you desire, you may wait until a kitten is born that does meet your qualifications.
You may visit, and I will do my absolute best to send appropriate photos and describe the personality accurately. We accept Paypal and cash. If you wish to pay by check, a certified check must be received 10 days before pick up and clear before we will release the kitten.
We love to play!

Deposits are nonrefundable unless the kitten has a non-disclosed, serious health defect. If there is a health problem, the deposit will be refunded in full. If you pay a deposit, but find that the kitten's personality isn't quite what you wanted, you may apply your deposit to any future kitten. Kittens must be altered/spayed unless another arrangement has been made. Once purchased, the new owner has two weeks to have the kitten screened by his or her own vet. If a change of circumstance causes the new owner to re-home his or her cat, Pippskittens will house and attempt to find a new forever home; however, no funds will be returned. Shipping/delivery costs vary and are not included in the cost of the kitten. A $100 discount will be given to the total cost if two kittens are purchased at one time. A $50 referral fee will be paid to owners whose excellent experience with one of our kittens leads another approved pet home to purchase and keep a kitten from Pippskittens.
