Our Litters

When ArtéKatz Siberian litters are born, they are generally already reserved for customers, as we normally a waiting list of 3-6 months during the breeding season, depending on litter sizes and if people drop off the waiting list.

At 6 weeks we ask for the deposit and the remaining balance prior to picking up or shipping the kitten. At the time of transfer, the kittens are around 12 weeks of age, have been  neutered/ spayed, micro chipped (registered on the Identipet database) and received their first 3-in-1 vaccination. For first time kitten owners a starter-kit can be ordered and a document is provided containing all of the information you require to make the transition for the kitten as easy and pleasant as possible.

We pride ourselves in doing the best possible job in socialising our kittens, making them brave, not afraid of noises or movement, eating various foods, getting used to cat carriers and be an all-round great pet. Above all, they have shown to adapt to their new environment and people exceptionally fast, immediately exploring their surroundings (no hiding under beds here) and settling in within a  day or two.

You are welcome to come and visit Our Cattery in Lonehill, near Fourways, north of Johannesburg, to see how we socialize our kittens as well as to test for an allergic reaction if you suffer from cat allergies. Come and see these wonderful cats in their home environment, we are always happy to meet any potential ‘parents’ of our kittens in person. You can Contact Us 7 days a week.

SCAMMER ALERT!

OVER A DOZEN OF OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE BEEN SCAMMED OUT OF SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF MONEY BEFORE, AND SOMETIMES AFTER, CONTACTING US FOR A SIBERIAN KITTEN.

There are only 3 registered breeders of Siberian cats in South Africa. 
ArteKatz Siberians was the first one, established in 2011, and then there is Uzuri Siberians and Cobaltorino Siberians. All three breeders are registered with one or more of the 3 official cat bodies in South Africa:

1. Southern African Cat Council – website
2. Cat Federation of Southern Africa – website
3. Cat Association of Southern Africa – website

Never trust a breeder that you do not find registered with one of these bodies for the breed you are looking for, or that sell more than 3 different breeds of cats.

EVERYONE ELSE SELLING A SIBERIAN KITTEN IS A SCAMMER!

REASONS PEOPLE GET SCAMMED

  • Time pressure to get a kitten
    You can be lucky if a kitten is available, but generally there is a waiting list of several months
  • Price too high – looking for a bargain
    There is no such thing as a Siberian kitten for under R10.000, if you find one, IT’S A SCAM
 
  • Not enough due diligence/ or street smarts
    Always TALK to the breeder, view their cattery physically or via live video (WhatsApp works fine) and NEVER agree to pick up a kitten other than from the breeder, the airport or from an established pet transporter
  •  
  • Always check Hellopeter.com if in doubt
  • Several of our customers that got scammed later found out the scammers were already listed with Hellopeter, search this link
