We will never re home a animal the same day we meet you!

 We only send cats/kittens to homes after we have built a relationship with the new family.



This is important information for any hairless cat owner!  My goal is to educate owners not scare  them. It is not common to have these viruses but it is possible and I like  to educated people so they can understand why it is so important to care for Peterbalds properly and keep them healthy. 


Peterbalds are higher risk for 

"Immune Deficency Disease"
This may be inherited or caused by viral infection. It lowers the body's defences against infection, and impairs the function of the immune system. 
They are at risk for 
"Feline Herpies virus  (FJV-1)"
This can happen from stress, change in environment, and sickness. Herpies can mutate into FIP in Peterbalds. It needs to be taken seriously! some times Fish and the Rabies vaccination can make some Peterbalds very sick. Although there is no medical facts to support this a lot of breeders feel there is a link between the rabies vaccination and Herpies  with hairless cats. The coat type does effect health. The less hair the lower the immune system can be. Even if vaccinated Peterbalds can suffer from 
*"Feline Pneumonitis (Chlamydophila psittaci)"
*"Feline Calicivirous (FCV)
*"Feline infections peritonitis virus" 
*"Reovirouses"
*"Mycoplasma infection"
*Allergic Asthma"
*Dry eye (Keratoconjunctivitic sicca)"
This can be associated with Herpies virus. 
*Disorders involving Cytotoxic antibodies can be triggered by a Drug, VACCINATION or Infection. Peterbalds respond very well to a combination of 4 medications when used at the same time. 
*Gentamicin eye and nose drops
*Clavamox 
*Teramicine eye drops 
*Doxycycline
Peterbalds often do not respond well to just one of these antibiotics, and often need a combination of all 4. 
Peterbalds do better with a immune system builder daily. A vitamin with a pine bark and Lysine in it is best. I recommend NuVet To my clients as it is a vitamin I know use and trust. some Peterbalds can hand Peterbalds have a harder  time processing fish as the liver and kidney process fish oil through them and out the hair follicles. This is why hairless animals can have a hard time processing fish.  in some cases Fish can build up in the liver and kidneys and cause health problems, this does not always happen It is my opinion that Peterbalds do very poorly with pine cleaners, scented soap or fabric softener a, scentsy  products, and some perfume. Some Symptoms of a Peterbald reaction to a product may be sneezing, coughing, sinus problems, breathing changes, and eye irritation. There are many plants Cats can be allergic to. Plants can cause serious health issues and even cause death. Symptoms can range from vision problems, upset stomach,  headache, convulsions, respiratory problems, and even death.

*It can be a little confusing when trying to find the right products for your Peterbald a few things to know. to much
fish is not good for some Peterbalds. products with oyster shells are fine and will help digestion.
Vitamin B12 may or may not be fish oil, some vitamin B12 is made from organics. 
Some times this may be confusing but once you find products you like that work it is easy to stick to them. 
We recommend NuVet to our clients  it is Safe for Peterbalds it is a product we know and love.

As a breeder not a vet  I give this information it is based on my resurch and  knowledge accumulated from other breeders, I encourage you to talk to your vet about these if you are concerned. This information should never be used for self diagnosis. But it can be a good source of information when consulting with a vet. 

to our first time owners I have 2 options for product packages. Option #1 is the starter package, it has almost every thing you need to care for a peterbald. Option #2 is the Sample package it has samples of the basic products you need to care for a peterbald.

First time owners it is a good idea to choose one of these packages.

kittens in our cattery Learn a few basic things 

* counters and tables are off limits if they go on them the owner needs to clap at the cat. If they still don't get off the table or counter then clap again and say there name loudly. repeat if needed.

*cats have a large amount of bacteria on there feet. If they are allowed to walk on your table your family can get sick.

*Our cats are never allowed to use teeth or claws to play. we stop this by never allowing this bad behaviour. if they do playo rough a gentle tap on the nose and a firm No works well.

* A animal allowed to play to rough can have problems later in life from it. They can harm a person by there bite and scratches.

*All cats and kittens get weekly baths. They will test there new owners to see what they can get away with when it comes to baths.

* All our kittens start learning potty training (toilet Training) We give the kittens the starting concept of the toilet training but the new owner has to follow through or it will not work. Our reason for doing this is the our older cats do not use the  potty system. So this allows us to have more control over our cats corona counts as well as expose the kittens to less corona from older cats. Kittens only share bath room area with kittens born in there litter. All people and animals have a corona count. keeping a kittens corona count low helps keep them healthy.
