Carinya British Shorthair – At Carinya, we have a small breeding program that focusses on health and temperament first and foremost and of course on type. At Carinya British kittens are born and raised in our home and have lots of cuddles and attention. Babies are handled from birth to ensure an easy disposition.
As well as the usual veterinary work, we also DNA test our breeding cats for health concerns and also heart scan annually to ensure we are breeding with the healthiest cats possible. Our cattery is also FeLV and FIV free.
Vaccinations: Kittens will be vaccinated with F3 at 8 weeks and again at 12 weeks of age. They will also be wormed regularly.
At around 10 weeks of age, depending on size / weight, the kittens will go to our wonderful vets at the Garden City Veterinary Clinic to be desexed and microchipped.
Having bred cats for over 45 years, we have had lots of opportunity to investigate whether a totally indoor cat is as happy and well-adjusted as one that is allowed outside.
Personally, I feel the cats are just as happy and content if they have a loving and caring family who spends time with them. Cats are social beings and LOVE to be made a fuss of so keep your kittens / cats safe, save the wildlife and keep them indoors.
