WHAT IS THE PRICE OF A PUREBRED KITTEN AND WHY IS THE PRICE RANGE SO WIDE?

A) Kittens are conditionally divided into 3 classes – “Pet”, “Breed” and “Show”.
The cheapest is a “Pet” class - pets. Such kittens can not be used in breeding, and they do not take part in shows. They are most often neutered. However, they must have documents like kittens of other classes.

“Breed” - kittens for a medium price. They can participate in shows and in breeding if they have the right to mating, pedigree and written agreement with the breeder. They may have minor defects that will not affect the offspring.

“Show” kittens are the most expensive kittens. They are designed for participation in shows and exhibitions. Champions and even World Champions grow from them. Show class kittens are rare and there is usually a line for them.
Attention! A class can not be assigned before a kitten reaches 4 months of age. Certified experts of various felinological systems or an evaluation committee at special shows do this. Such kittens are given certificates and diplomas. Without it, a kitten can not be recognized as a Show class, and therefore cost a lot of money.

B) Of course, the price of a kitten is influenced by the titles and awards of its parents. The most expensive kittens are from World Champions or Grand European Champions. If a breeder has invested a lot of money in the parents, traveled to shows in Russia, other countries and continents, received prizes and achieved the highest results, then the kittens will be expensive.

C) In addition, the cost of a kitten includes all the costs of its maintenance, feeding and veterinary services. After all, the baby was well fed up to 4 months of age, so that it had a decent appearance. It was well nourished, happy and healthy. Everything the kitten needed was being bought for it.

The list of things a kitten needs is presented in the article: "Tips for caring of a pet".

D) Breeders invest their efforts and soul in little kittens. They clean up after them, make sure the pets were safe, do everything to make them grow up cute, kind and smart... Such care for babies is of course included in the price.

E) All babies, regardless of class, need documents, registration in the club, vet. passport and vaccination, and this also costs money.

F) If you are not ready to give a considerable amount of money for a kitten, you’d rather take a kitten from a shelter, because a thoroughbred kitten from a cattery with a good reputation will not come cheap. In the case, when kittens from purebred parents - champions are offered for next to nothing, then, most likely, there is something wrong with them.

WHAT DOCUMENTS SHOULD A KITTEN HAVE WHEN BUYING A KITTEN?

A) A pedigree or metric. What exactly you get depends on the price and the class of a kitten. Metric is a document that contains a birth certificate, a confirmation of breed, color, date of birth, sex, and also evidence that the litter is registered in the club, as the metric is issued by the club. Of course, there must be all required seals and signatures.
Pedigree is a detailed information about the parents and 4 more generations of a cat's ancestors. It is issued in exchange for the metric, also in the club, but provided that the kitten is taken for breeding.

B) An international veterinary passport with notes on vaccinations, parasite treatment and deworming.

C) A contract of sale of the kitten between you and the breeder.

D) If you purchase a Show class kitten, you must be given all its certificates, diplomas and documents confirming the class.
