WE DO NOT CURRENTLY HAVE ANY KITTENS AVAILABLE BUT LOOK FORWARD TO A LITTER FROM THE LOVELY LUNA LOVEGOOD AND SIRED BY THE BEAUTIFUL BATMAN LATER IN 2015 (Updated August 2015)
Pics below of an earlier litter from Gunnhildr (aka Sonja) and Galileo born on December 12th 2013. This is Sonja's first litter and although she took a while to work out what to do she has done a good job of raising these babies who, at eight weeks old, are looking very promising.

What do you get when you get a Jaymlynkatz Kitten?
All Jaymlynkatz Kittens: Have been bred from carefully selected bloodlines and their parents, and the generations before them, have been screened for *Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy(see below) and found not to be affected by this inherited disease. Are reared in our home where they get lots of love and attention and are used to all the usual household noises so are well socialised and confident. Are registered with the New Zealand Cat Fancy as Pedigree Cats and you will receive documentation to confirm this. Are consistently and reliably using a litter tray by the time they leave for their new homes. Will have been routinely treated for the prevention of internal and external parasites. Have been vaccinated twice for the common feline diseases. Will have been neutered or spayed at 11 or 12 weeks (unless purchased for breeding). Will have been vet checked and found to be healthy a couple of days before leaving for their new home - a vet certificate can be provided. Jaymlynkatz kittens leave for their new homes with: A folder containing information about the breed and how to care for your new family member. A four generation pedigree. Vaccination Certificate and Health record. Diet sheet and generous samples of the foods the kitten is used to. A couple of its favourite toys. A cuddly rug. A month's free Health Insurance.
Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a hereditary disease which affects the heart muscle and may cause premature death of animals affected by it. It is found in many pedigree breeds of cats as well as moggies and, while it has been known in some lines of Norwegian Forest Cats, it does not seem to be nearly as big a problem in this breed as it is in some other cat breeds. Within the international Norwegian Forest Cat community, ethical and reputable breeders have been screening their cats for this disease for several years so that affected cats are not bred from. To date, all my breeding cats have been screened for HCM and none have been found to be affected.
