The term “Pet Quality” does not imply that the cat is "inferior". Since we have worked years on defining how we breed. Most of the kittens produced are excellent representatives of the breed. But usually only one in a litter is chosen to be the next show kitten. 
The siblings simply do not either meet the breed's standard along with show temperment, have a minor fault or is a cat that I cannot use in my breeding program. These faults are often very small that only a trained eye would detect them. It does not mean that they are sickly or cats that are "cast off" cats. 

A pet is a cat that usually carries all traits (some not as predominate as we would like in a show cat) that you want in a Russian Blue but has been deemed by us as a non-reproducing cat hence a pet (all pets are neuters or spays) will offer lots of love and warmth to its new owner. 


We usually have a waiting period from several months to a year for kittens. We do maintain a waiting list of people that we have interviewed and discussed the ownership of a Russian Blue.

From time to time we have older cats to place in loving forever homes. These cats can be either retired show cats or retired breeders. For these older guys we are looking for homes and individuals that have extra time, love and patience to work with an older guy that needs that extra time to adjust to the changes that life has to offer. 

Kittens are not sold until they are at least 4 months of age. This provides enough time for them to be completely socialized and have all of their shots.

We feel that this is the perfect age for them to be introduced to a new home where they will bond with their new owners. Beware of anyone who would sell you a kitten at a very young age as this does jeopardize both its health and socialibility. 

By Florida Law, your kitten/cat will be examined by a State Certified Vet and issued a Florida State Health Certificate. The kitten/cat will have the necessary shots as required by law. This consists of 2 - FVRCP vaccinations, Rabies Shot, Tested negative for FeLV and FIV and stool sample free of any parasites. The kitten/cat will be altered prior to going to it’s new home.


Drop us an email at kdboyce@bellsouth.net  tell us a bit about yourself, your household, and your experience with cats, and why you have chosen a Russian Blue to be your next companion. This will start a dialog with us and will probably generate more questions. We eventually like to have an actual conversation with all potential buyers so that both parties can be ensured that they are happy with each other. 

We recognize the people's lives change and that often impacts whether they can take a kitten when we have one available. When we have kittens available, the first person on the list has the first pick of pet kittens. Sometimes that time is not always right for them to bring a kitten into their household (due to unexpected financial constraints, moving, a temporary change in lifestyle) or the sex available is not what they would prefer. We have had people wait as long as a year before we had a kitten of any type available, and we have placed kittens with families who did not expect to have a kitten for 4 months or more. 


We do not sell cats as gifts. We must talk to the final owner of the cat to ensure that it is going into a good home and that they understand the responsibility of owning a cat.
