Kyatwo Birmans is a small, CFA registered cattery, located in West Minneapolis, MN.
I fell in love with a Birman on a show in Cape Town, South Africa. I got my very first Birman, “Angel Baby”, from Nora Anderson in Johannesburg. And as the saying goes, the rest is history.
I can never imagine my life without a Birman, they are our children and spoilt in every aspect.
Our cats and kittens are much loved members of our family. They are raised in our home, not in cages, with lots of love and attention, living a very pampered life. Being very attached to all of our fur-babies, we are very selective as to who we let our kittens go home with.
When buying a kitten from us, we have a contract that both parties sign.
Our kittens will be available to go to their new homes when they are around 14-16 weeks of age.
This allows the kitten enough time to finish socializing and be weaned from mom. Also gives us time to make sure the series of vaccinations are complete.
You have 48 hours to have the kitten checked by your Vet and if any problems are found and you want to return the kitten, I will refund the purchase price of the kitten when it is returned within the 48 hours.
If a fatal genetic defect is found, the kitten will be replaced by another kitten when a necropsy has been performed (at the purchasers expense) and the records are supplied.
We require that the kitten be an indoor cat only and can NOT be declawed.
No FIP or FELV vaccination is allowed or my health guarantee will be voided. These vaccinations are very controversial and risk the health of the animal.
We require the name and phone number of your Veterinarian before picking up the kitten.
If you would like to reserve a kitten, a $150 non-refundable deposit will get you on our waiting list and hold a kitten for you until the kitten is ready to go to his/her new home.
We spare no expense when it comes to our fur babies. They are fed Holistic cat food; human grade freeze dried chicken, human grade raw sirloin beef and premium dry cat food.
The Birman gene pool is very small, so we have cats from imported (Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France and South Africa) and domestic bloodlines to help with genetic diversity and healthier kittens.
Birman babies are born all white. After a few days you can see the color starting to appear on their nose and the backs of their ears..with some of the colors it is very hard to determine what their gloving and laces will look like, thus it can take a while for a breeder to know who will be a show prospect and who will be someone's beloved pet.
