Why Hidden Paw?


A reputable breeder will

  • Guarantee the health of a kitten whether or not a law requires it
  • Always recommend and usually require the neutering or spaying of all pet quality kittens
  • Register the cats with a national registry, such as ACFA
  • Be familiar with current show standards for the breed so as not to misrepresent the quality of the cats
  • Be available to answer questions and give advice for as long as you have your cat.

A kitten bought from a reputable breeder will almost always cost less than a kitten of equal quality bought at a pet shop.
