Be sure to tell us what in particular you are looking for, and where you are located in your email.

PLEASE EMAIL instead of phoning if possible.
We get many many contacts a week.
It is much easier for us to "attempt" to keep them straight, if we can refer back to a written email!

We have kittens in all colors, except solid white. Prices are listed below.


Once kittens are posted we can then take reservations.
We do not keep a waiting list or contact when kittens are posted.
We go by when the person first emailed, if they emailed a month ago, and someone else emails today,
The person who emailed a month ago will get first chance at the kitten.
Although I would love to lay on the sofa and get on a laptop and talk kittens all day, I do not have the time.
I do not have time to carry on conversations about what is coming up in the near or distant future.
Also, I do not have a laptop, my computer is in my office.
My husband helps with heavy work in the cattery but it is I alone who does most of the cat work.

I help whelp babies, deal with new moms, care for young kittens, feed, water, clean, take photos, upload-name-file
and post to the website. I take kittens 50 mile round trip for vet check, give shots, wormings, register litters,
print out, file, fill out contracts,and health records, book flights ,bath kittens, spring clip adults,
get together kitten kits and crates, schedule kitten pick-ups and meet with the new owners.

I have all the cattery to keep clean, tend to adults and monitor breedings and health.
I am up all night sometimes with difficult births, or up at 3am to ship out a kitten.
I deal with the heartbreak of losing a kitten or even an adult.
Leaving me certainly in no mood for light conversation, even if I did have the time.

So please understand, I do have a life outside of cats, although they take up most of it.
So if you do not receive a reply to an email, it is probably because I am busy with all that is above.
I know email correspondence sometimes seems unfriendly and repugnant, but is the only way I can keep up with inquiries.
Hopefully we will meet one day and have a genuine interaction. : )

Thankyou for understanding,
Mitzi

"ODE TO A BAD HOME"
I wanted to share a correspondence I had over the last few days with a pet inquirer.
Her inquiry was for the adorable little smoke tortie female named "Glow Dust"
The lady seemed nice, and all looked fine as I read her initial email, until I got to the end.
She lives in Washington State and said the kitten would be outdoors, they have 16 acres,
large fenced in yard, and part of rodent control for the chicken coop.

I replied that I couldn't place a cat with her if it was to be outdoors, and to check at her local shelter.
She replied that she didn't believe in keeping animals in "a captive state".
I replied that I didn't believe in offering them up a sacrifices to coyotes, cougars, bears and raccoons.
Through the next correspondences she said she thought cats should be cats and allowed to hunt outdoors.

I tried to educate her on the dangers of letting a cat outdoors to no avail.
Then she says she will post our correspondence along with a bad review for all to see what a terrible person I am, so they will not get a cat from me.
She seems unable to differentiate an outdoor photo op with an outdoor life.
She has taken a photo from my website, that I asked permission from the owners of the cats to post,
and posted it on her "review" without my consent, or the consent of the producer/owner of the photo.


The reason I post this conversation is to let everyone know UP FRONT and from the get go:
MY KITTENS ARE NOT TO BE ALLOWED TO ROAM OUTDOORS, UNLESS IN SECURE CAT ENCLOSURE!

PLEASE NOTE!
If you believe as this lady does, that cats should be free to roam, then DO NOT CONTACT ME FOR ONE OF MY BABIES!

Could you subject this cutie to the dangers of outdoors?

NOTICE!
Kittens are sold as PET ONLY!
Price is determined by: Sex, Size, Color, Pattern, Ears (size-shape-lynx tips), Poly, and Overall Quality at time of posting.
We can only go by what is before us at the date of posting their photo.
Sometimes a lesser quality kitten blooms into the best of the litter by the time they leave.






















I'M MAD!.... Its No Laughing Matter!

HOW DO I GET ON THE WAITING LIST?.. I KEEP MISSING OUT!


We often hear this, please read the info below!

Our heavy kitten season begins around April. In Winter and early Spring we have very few kittens to choose from.
Later we should have two or three litters at one time, and of course, more variety of babies.

We do NOT keep a "Waiting List"

Once you see a kitten posted that you are interested in, Email Us!
We do not RESERVE kittens until they have been VET CHECKED!
Therefore we do not entertain inquiries on newborn babies.
If three people inquire on the same kitten, we will check back on emails to see who contacted us first.
Also playing into who gets the kitten is "Picking Up" or "Shipped".
If temperatures are a factor, shipping may not be available.
We Ship out of Huntsville Alabama with Delta Airlines, to any major airport Delta services.

People often email and then unfortunately miss out because they are uncertain if the kitten is the one for them.
We DO want our kittens to go into the "Perfect" home, but please be aware, that if you are wavering on reserving one,
someone else may be emailing me at the same time with an adamant "I WANT THAT KITTEN!"











~~~ABOUT PRICE~~~

Pet Kittens ~ Females $800-$1200 ~ Males $900-$1600
We do NOT sell kittens with breeding rights.
We do NOT sell kittens overseas, we will occasionally trade with an overseas breeder for outcross lines.

Kittens are sold as PETS ONLY, not to be shown or bred.
Kittens may be show quality, show potential, or may have a small fault which would disqualify them from showing.
If you are wanting to Show a kitten, then we would help you pick out a kitten that may do well at a show.
Things that may make a kitten not suitable for show could be, pattern not bright and clear, color not rich enough,
earset or profile off, short tail, tail kink (which can show up as late as 5 months old),
those awesome pouty pronounced whisker pads (not desired for show),or potential underbite etc.
Although these things would not be good for show, they have no bearing on a Super Pet!

Many people prefer the darker tabbys, as they look a bit wilder. They may prefer a higher set ear,
or a smoke that isn't clearly breaking, although not good for show they have that AWESOME FERAL look!
A show kitten would be more moderate in type than we prefer at CongoCoons!
Although we prefer a wilder more feral type, we are currently breeding some fantastic show quality browns.
Sporting rich red and gold with brilliant clear patterns.
"Missing Link", "Primeval" and "Iron Maiden" are giving us some fantastic warm and boldly patterned offspring!


We have recently retired a number of adults, and are trying to not mix and dilute our colors.
We are working towards a strong Blue Silver, and a Warm Brown breeding program!
Trying to keep our browns separate from the silvers, and also working with solids in both programs.


Although we have had many Champion Cats, it has been years since we competed.
We have imported some Extreme Type cats recently, and will update our webpage shortly with their photos.
It is a constant work in progress to breed that SUPER CONGOCOON!

Below is an update on the projects we have been undertaking through this winter.
With new enclosures, a pheasant-peacock pen, pergolas added, along with extras, things look a bit different!
I want to give a huge hug and thankyou to my husband David for all his hard work in building everything.
Not to mention placing all those stepping stones...jeesh, and mostly putting up with my input!
And another hug and thankyou to our dear friend Terry Owens for his help in the construction, and also putting up with my input!

OUR BABY KITTENS ARE BORN IN THE NURSERY IN OUR HOME

Kittens are using a litter box by five weeks of age, and have playpens in the Kitten Room adjacent to our den once they begin to toddle around.
When you come to get your kitten, he will be freshly groomed, and taken to the Cub Cabin for pick up.
Kittens are not housed in the Cub Cabin, it is for pick-up only.

Once you have RESERVED a kitten, you can rest assured no strangers will be handling your baby!

Kittens are wormed at 3 and 5 weeks of age, and are given their first innoculation at 6 weeks of age. Kittens are vet checked at around 7 weeks of age.
We give a 1 year health guarantee (death due to congenital defect) and an 8 week FIP guarantee.
You receive CFA Pet Registration Papers upon pick-up. Pedigrees are not given with kittens, but you can purchase one from CFA.

There are usually a number of adult cats available for viewing in the cattey garden, so you can see what your kitten may develop into!
