Helandy cats are raised with much invested time, love and affection and as such will have some conditions of sale in order to try to ensure the most suitable homes are found for our precious charges. Please read through the following information in order to be aware of our stipulations before entering into an agreement with us.
Selkirk Rex kittens/pedigree cats SHOULD be INDOOR cats. The reasons are many but generally for their own safety. This is because they do not have any sense of danger and would not move away from impending traffic/natural wildlife etc. The debate of indoor or restricted access/outdoor free roaming cats is a wide ranging and contentious issue which does have merits to both sides. My own personal point of view is to ensure the cat has a happy environment with a satisfying level of stimulation through toys and play but that the cat also has a very SAFE environment.
Kitten prices do vary according to breed (and sometimes colour/pattern/coat length) but listed below is a guide but all kittens will be clearly marked on my website:
Breeders seeking potential breeding queen/studs should make contact for price enquiries and contracts.
All prospective owners will be asked questions which include their family arrangements/work commitments etc. Please do not be offended by this as we merely seek to ensure the right type of cat is homed with you to ensure as smooth a transition as possible occurs.
Please note that our prices are very much in line with other breeders. Breeding is very much a hobby of ours and as such, when carried out properly and thoroughly comes with huge vet bills, food bills, and care requirements which has to be covered so that all monies received from the sale of any kittens/cats does in fact go straight back into the development and maintenance of our pet puddies. We have chosen a breed which is still progressing and have gone to huge lengths and great expense to import in order to support the progress of this breed. We appreciate 'showing' is just one aspect of breeding these beautiful cats however first and foremost is the balance between family life and our hobby. Due to the dynamics of our family, it is neither realistic or feasible to traipse a young child around a show hall for a full day whilst we talk to other breeders/cat lovers; we would much prefer to have more hands-on time at home with our puddies and support those who choose to do us the greatest of honours and represent our small elite collection on our behalf.
