Health

We are proud that our cattery has tested
negative for the following diseases and parasites:
1. HCM (heart)
2. FiV / FeLV (Immunodeficiency / Leukemia)
3. PK-Deficiency (anemia)
4. PRA-b (progressive retinal atrophy of the eyes)
5. Trichomonas (intestinal parasites)
6. Giardia (intestinal parasites)
7. Coccidiosis (intestinal parasites)

Purrfectpaws Munchkin Cattery is a “Health-Focused Program” (HFP). We have tested and are a FIP/FeLV free (negative) cattery, including PK-Deficiency, PRA tested, and feel it is important as a responsible breeder to regularly screen for HCM from a “Board Certified Feline Cardiologist” (BCFC) for “Ultrasound Heart Screens” (UHS). No line is safe or clear from this HCM feline disease. We at Purrfectpaws Munchkin Cattery feel screening lessens the odds of our breeding kittens/cats to help ensure the best and healthiest possible offspring. We take every precaution with our breeding practices to greatly reduce the risk of future health issues … Our mission is to go above and beyond in our Program at the front end to make sure the placement to you is successful. We are confident you would agree that our philosophy is worth it.

OUR GUARANTEE

Munchkin kittens are ready to leave for their new homes at 12 to 16 weeks of age (most at 12 weeks). All Munchkin kittens are sold as pets (whether pet or show quality) and will be spayed or neutered before going to their new homes (this is an additional fee-as if you were doing the altering later, but this way, it is done and out of the way, at vet cost and very reasonable, no upcharge of a $670 value). With Purrfectpaws Munchkin Cattery taking care of this process reduces your responsibility and reduces the risk of hormone changing early. It is already done to leave you time to bond with your new family addition. All of our Munchkin kittens adopted are vet examined, have their age-appropriate core vaccinations, vaccination record, generation pedigree, TICA registration papers, a written contract with a health guarantee, microchipping has been injected during surgery. We do not up-charge as we try to make your new addition a pleasant transaction and affordable.
