IMPORTED OR LOCAL?


Site Content

WE WANT YOU TO MAKE A RIGHT DECISION WHEN YOU GET YOUR KITTEN. HERE ARE OUR THOUGHTS AND SOME  INFORMATION.


1. YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT A LOCAL KITTEN CAN'T COST THE SAME AMOUNT AS AN IMPORTED ONE DUE TO COSTS OF LIVING IN USA AND OVERSEAS. IF YOUR BUDGET IS LIMITED YOU MIGHT WANT TO LOOK FOR THE IMPORTED KITTEN. VET BILLS, FOOD, LABOR , TAXES, PERMITS BRING THE LOCAL KITTEN'S PRICE UP. 

2. THE IMPORTED KITTENS MAY HAVE A BETTER QUALITY FOR LESS MONEY. FOR EXAMPLE, A GOLDEN BSH KITTEN BORN IN USA CAN EASILY COST $2500 WHEN A SIMILAR IMPORTED KITTEN WILL BE AROUND $1500 OR LESS.

3. CHOICE OF THE IMPORTED CATS MIGHT BE BETTER AS WELL. THE BREEDING PROCESS IN US IS  DIFFICULT WITH A LOT OF LICENSING AND PERMITS INVOLVED. THE AMOUNT OF BREEDERS IN USA IS LIMITED TOO. KITTENS IN SOME COLORS MIGHT NOT BE AVAILABLE IN USA AT ALL OR BE OFFERED FOR AN ADOPTION IN A VERY LIMITED AMOUNT.

4. IF YOU NEED YOUR KITTEN FAST THE IMPORTED CATS MIGHT THE EASIEST WAY. DELIVERY TAKES ABOUT 2-3 WEEKS AND NO WAITLIST INVOLVED. 

5. HEALTH.  IF YOU FIND A GOOD LOCAL BREEDER YOU MAY EXPECT YOUR KITTEN TO ARRIVE HEALTHY. IF YOU GOT CONNECTED TO A US BACKYARD BREEDER YOU MIGHT GET YOUR KITTEN SICK. GOOD RESEARCH ON THE BREEDERS IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. KITTENS  ARE KNOWN TO GET STRESSED DURING LONG TRANSPORTATION. IT MIGHT AFFECT THE KITTEN'S HEALTH. MOST OF THE KITTENS (ABOUT 95%) ARRIVE HEALTHY. AT THE SAME TIME  THE IMPORTED KITTENS ARE AT HIGHER RISK OF GETTING SICK. BASED ON OUR EXPERIENCE ABOUT 3-5% OF THE IMPORTED KITTENS  GET AFFECTED DURING A LONG CARGO FLIGHT. MOST COMMON HEALTH PROBLEM WE SEE IS URI. SOME IMPORTED KITTENS MIGHT ARRIVE WITH THE UPSET STOMACH.  ALL OTHER HEALTH CONDITIONS ARE PRETTY RARE.

WE DO ADOPT BOTH THE IMPORTED AND LOCALLY BORN KITTENS. WE ADVICE YOU TO EMAIL US IF YOU HAVE ANY PREFERENCES OR QUESTIONS ABOUT THE KITTENS OR THEIR ORIGIN. PLEASE EMAIL US PRIOR TO YOUR PURCHASE. OUR EMAIL IS PURELOVECATTERY@GMAIL.COM.
