Retired Breeding Cats
From time to time it becomes necessary to rehome retired breeding cats and these cats can make wonderful companions for people who understand that adopting a retired breeding cat takes time, commitment and patience. It is not known how a retired breeding cat might cope with such a huge change, but given the right person it can work out. Often these cats needs to be an only cat and much depends on the individual temperament as to what might be the best option. Some retired males for example might be very territorial and living with other cats is not an option.
If you think you have what it takes to adopt a retired breeding cat then please contact me for more information on retirees that might be available.
Play is really important for kittens and it is up to owners to ensure they are provided with toys, activities and play sessions to ensure environmental enrichment. Seeing kittens play together is a
joy and it plays an important socialisation function as play aggression is a
normal aspect of their development and when they have opportunities to play
with siblings, it socialises them and addresses the need for natural play
Adopting a Rextales kitten
Placing kittens is a big responsibility and as much care and
effort goes into our breeding we like to have contact with the owners on a
regular basis prior to making a decision. This contact can be via email or
phone until we can meet potential owners in person when the kittens are around
8-9 weeks old. Rextales does not take deposits until the kittens have been
viewed by potential owners and all parties are comfortable with the
arrangement. We believe placing a kitten is a two way agreement and it is
important that new owners are comfortable with the environment the kittens are
born and raised in.
After the kitten visit potential owners will be sent a
Kitten Agreement prior to committing. The agreement is written and provided in
good faith with the aim of promoting ethical practices in breeding, selling and
owning a Rextales kitten. Lots of hours, love and care go into producing our
kittens and if you receive an Agreement it means we believe that you will
provide our kittens with the quality care and love they deserve and recognise
the long term commitment involved.
Due to the Devon's interactive personality we prefer to
place two kittens together where kittens will be left alone for long periods as
from experience we have seen some kittens can become bored and lonely if left
to their own devices while people are out at work fulltime. It is also a fact that
siblings socialise each other when placed together reducing the chances of
Potential owners who are interested in taking two kittens
together receive priority providing they are a suitable
placement. We prefer not to place kittens into households where there are a
number of cats already. We will consider placing kittens in households with a single
mature age cat however will not place kittens in situations where owners are
purchasing kittens from another breeder at the same time or already have a
young cat. These are precautionary measures and based on an understanding of
potential health risks to all the cats concerned and principles of ethical
