Our kittens are shipped using a Professional Animal Transporter, we do not offer crate shipping so don't ask or insist we crate one of our kittens. Once a kitten is reserved, we will send you a professional shipper’s contact info so that you can make arrangements for a date of delivery we will give you a date to provide the shipper for delivery. We ask all buyers that are having their new kitten shipped to make arrangements as soon as possible with the shipper as most professional transporters book all deliveries in advance and as a courtesy to the shipper it is good management to do so. Rates are very comparable to crate shipping which runs about $375.00 in the U.S. Shipping fees are the sole cost of the buyer. With our shipper your kitten will be on the plane with the shipper cared for the whole time, never below in crate with other animals in a cage and in air conditioning and scared. Our transporter generally meets you at your closest airport or ca deliver to your home for an aditional fee.
Our Persian kittens are priced according to quality, linage, sex, and personality. While we are well aware that we could sell our kittens for much more money we choose to make owning a high end Persian kitten affordable and reasonable to all buyers.
Monetary status does not always indicate that a buyer will be a responsible pet owner and we realize this.
We do give $100.00 discount to buyers purchasing two of more kittens. The price of our Persian kittens covers the cost of breeding which includes Food, Vitamins, Vet Bills, Toys, Care, Grooming, and Labor Etc.
Our prices start at $1,250.00 and go up.
In addition all buyers must fill out an application for purchase.
This is for our records ONLY and your information is never shared with anyone else.
Once a deposit is made we will email you the application which must be returned to us within 24 hrs.
*Health Guarantee and Required Care:
All our Persian kittens come with a 1 year health guarantee against any deadly hereditary congenital defect ONLY, which is also a pet purchase contract.
All kittens see a licensed Veterinarian before they leave us for an exam, fecal testing, health certificate and vaccines. Your new kitten will require additional vaccines as they get older and it is your responsibility to provide proper care for your new kitten.
*Setting an Appointment:
Appointments are for pick up only, we do not allow buyers in our home, no exceptions nor will we meet you somewhere because you're "thinking" of buying a kitten. We find that the kind of individual that purchases the Persians we specialize in breeding are knowledgeable of the breed, knows what they want and is comfortable choosing one based on photos/videos we supply.
In addition we understand that some buyers may not feel comfortable purchasing a kitten online and due to incidents where people have been ripped off, we certainly can't blame them and would advise anyone to proceed with caution toward anyone selling Persian kittens online.
Kismet Kittens will upon request supply any customer with two to three past buyer references and in addition we always watermark all photos of our available Persian kittens for sale thus making it harder for any person to steal photos of our kittens and post them as their own.
*Note: In the last few years we have been made aware of several places using our photos of past kittens and selling them as their own. We have reported these people to google who really doesn't care and have contacted these scam artist ourselves but they just ignore our requests and keep stealing our photos. Unfortunately these people operate outside of the U.S. and there's not much we can legally do except warm buyers.
Kismet Kittens is located in sunny Florida and offers shipping in the United States and to Canada. We also offer local pick up in the Tampa Bay Area by appointment only.
*Quality of Kittens:
We have worked very hard at becoming a successful, professional, respected breeder of high end deluxe Persian Doll Face Kittens and strive to make your experience with us an enjoyable one. The price of each kitten depends on the quality of the kitten and the time of year.
A brief description is listed with the photos.
Our kittens are CFA certified, high end, top quality, well cared for, well socialized, good with children and other animals and also very affectionate all this is reflected in our prices which range from $1,250.00 and can go up to $3500 or higher.
Whether your dream kitten is the majestic White Doll Face Kitten with Blue Eyes or the exotic look of the Golden Shaded Kitten or the stunningly beautiful Silver Chinchilla Shaded.
Or maybe you prefer the cuteness and playfulness of the Doll Face Bi-Colors or Tabby Kittens.
Kismet Kittens has the right kitten for you.
*Past Buyer References are given after deposit is made. We respect our past buyers and do not randomly go around giving out our buyers information because someone is thinking of purchasing a kitten from us.
*Deafness in White Kittens with Blue Eyes:
There is a myth that all blue eyed White kittens will most likely be deaf or hard of hearing. Here at Kismet Kittens we have a high percentage of White Blue Eyed Persians that have perfectly normal hearing due to the breeding process we use.
All cats born deaf adjust rather well to lack of sound and go on to have perfectly normal lives.
Deafness is caused by the dominate White gene carried in the breeding parents. Our Health Guarantee has a clause which excludes liability for deafness on any pf our Persian kittens.
There is a high demand for Blue Eyed White Persians and once you leave a deposit on one of ours you have made a commitment to purchase that kitten, we do not give a refund on deposits, because you changed your mind.
In rare circumstances we may allow a buyer to switch kittens only if the kitten they want to switch is of equal value. We do not switch a kitten once a buyer takes ownership and kitten leaves our care.
Weight Estimates for the Breeds we sell are as Follows:
White Doll Face & Himalayan Kittens: 6lbs. to 12lbs.
Silver-Chinchilla & Golden Shaded: 5lbs. to 8.5lbs.
Tabby & Bi Color: 5lbs. to 10lbs.
We do our best to determine eye color on our kittens by the time they are between 5-8 weeks of age, as general rule these are eye colors of breeds we sell:
White Doll Face-Blue-Odd-Green-Gold
Silver-Chinchilla-Golden Shaded- Green
Because a cat's eyes can be blue for 4 months and change to green we do not guarantee eye color will not change or not lighten up. We do our best to be honest about all factors of the breeding business and once a kitten is posted for sale on our Available Kittens page we are generally 95% sure of eye color.
*Teacup and Toy Kittens:
Because the word Teacup is not an actual breed of Persian.
The CFA does not recognize nor does it allow buyers to register any Persian kitten as Teacup or Toy.
The term Teacup is used to describe a weight range Breeders expect a kitten to weigh once fully grown. We do not guarantee weight/size as we have no control over diet/lifestyle once a buyer takes ownership of one of our Teacup/Toy Persian Kitten. We give our buyers a weight range we expect our Persian kittens to weigh once fully grown based on the breed and the weight of the parents and what is normal for that breed.
Keep in mind there are exceptions to that rule.
As stated above we cannot possibly give a weight/size guarantee and no legitimate breeder would.
Buyers with unrealistic expectations based on what they have read on the Internet regarding Teacup and Toy kittens will only be disappointed once the kitten becomes an adult and doesn't weigh 3 to 4 lbs. There is no such thing as a 3 to 4 lb. adult cat and if there was there would be something seriously wrong. Breeders that breed for smallness are unethical.
*Things to Consider:
There are many things to consider before you purchase your newest family member. Persians require care like regular brushing and periodic professional grooming as well as Veterinarian visits for exams and vaccinations.
They also require attention, so make sure that you have the time for a pet before you decide to purchase one. Our kitten contract requires you to Spay/Neuter and keep your Persian indoors.
There are many dangers of letting a kitten roam outside, for one they could catch a deadly disease from a stray animal, get lost/stolen or worse killed. Our Spay/Neuter contract prevents unwanted pregnancies and protects our line of Persians from being bred without a breeding contract.
Also buyers must ONLY use a vet that gasses the kitten for altering as this runs no risk of death that anesthesia does.
*Our Health Guarantee Responsibility:
Once a kitten leaves our cattery our responsibility to you is a 1 year health guarantee from any deadly hereditary or congenial defects. If a kitten is found to have a deadly genetic disease within the first year of life, we will offer you another kitten of equal value upon proof from a Licensed Veterinarian stating the exact cause of death along with a necropsy. If a kitten of equal value is not available within (8) eight months, we will refund purchase price of kitten.
Our health guarantee does not include minor basic health issues or standard yearly vaccines from feline diseases that is treatable by your local Veterinarian. Basic care for your new kitten may include treatment for fleas, ear mites, regular brushing and professional grooming, as well as standard vaccines as needed. Once you take ownership this becomes your responsibility and is required in our Pet contract that you take proper measure to care for your new Persian kitten. Our persians are given vitamins and are on a grain free dry food only, they are litter trained and well socialized before leaving and kittens do not leave our care until they're 2 lbs. no exceptions.
*Your Health Guarantee Responsibility:
We require that you take your new kitten to a Veterinarian within 72 hrs. after final purchase.
Failure to do so will render the Health Guarantee null and void. A copy of the Veterinarian Exam must be mailed to us within 7 days after purchase.
We will retain a copy of the health exam and purchase contract in our records for one (1) year.
Every kitten is susceptible to many deadly and disabling infectious diseases if not treated to prevent and protect them, even indoor kittens.
As a concerned and responsible pet owner it is important to have your kitten regularly vaccinated at the appropriate times and is your responsibility once you take ownership of one our kittens to do so.
*Blue Slip Papers:
Our kittens are CFA Certified. At time of purchase we require you to sign a Spay/Neuter Agreement as outlined in our Purchase Contract, which requires your Veterinarian's signature at the time of altering.
Once your kitten has been Spayed or Neutered, you are required to mail the form back to us and only then will we mail you the CFA registration papers. Our kittens are to be altered using the gassing technique only and not anesthesia, no exceptions.
We are very selective with whom we sell breeding rights to. We do not sell Breeding Rights in Florida.
Breeding rights are an additional $1000 per kitten to approved buyers.
