How does it work? When searching for a kitten
to bring into your family you'll want to find the best match for your
lifestyle. Some breeds are more active and playful than others. Others
are great with kids and pets but some may not be. Living in an
apartment might require a less active cat that likes being inside most
of the time. It's best to research the breed using the browse
page where you can sort by traits such as activity and child
friendliness. You will want to thoroughly read profiles of breeds you
are interested in. After perusing the available kittens and you have
found your favorites, just contact the seller using the contact method
they have shown in the "Seller Info" section. From there, it's up to
you and the seller to make arrangements and purchase.
Breeders, rescues, shelters and cat owners looking to find a home for their cats or kittens may create a seller account
for free. Your seller info will be shown with your kitten listings so
make sure to be detailed with your account profile. In order to be
found, you must add a kitten profile. If you have a litter of kittens
it's best to make a profile for each kitten to portray their
personalities. If you would rather just list the entire litter in one
profile that is okay too. You may post any age of cat even if it's a
litter you are expecting soon.
Who can join?
All types of cat lovers may join if they are interested in buying, selling
or adoption. We accept shelters, rescues, breeders and owners looking

their kittens and cats very well and abide by their local regulations.
If we find that a seller isn't up to our standards or what buyers
expect, they will likely be removed and banned contingent on a detailed
Why do buyers need an account?
The biggest reason we can give you is our messaging center. Your messages are easily accessible and will be stored within your account. Though, your email address will be given to the seller so they may contact you directly. You account allows you to create a list of favorite kittens. Last but not least, you can follow your favorite breeds to receive email notifications of new kittens for sale.
What are the seller types? Catteries & Breeders breed and raise cats for show and sale and have extensive knowledge regarding the breed they specialize in. They are members of a cat registry (CFA, TICA, FIFe, WCF or ANFI) and abide by club rules for breeding and care. Their cats & kittens should come with registration papers, health guarantee, and a certificate of good health from a vet. Because of the high standards they follow their cats for sale are typically more expensive. We have "cattery" and "breeder" separate for those with a preference, but also because catteries can be confused with a boarding facility. It seems that UK catteries are just for boarding which means they'd prefer to be called breeders.
Rescues & Shelters accept homeless cats and post cats for adoption. They will likely charge you small fee which helps continue their efforts. Donations help too! Their cats are typically adults that are up-to-date on vaccinations, seen by a vet and have been spayed or neutered. They should happily give you proof of vaccinations and vet care. Cat Lovers are parents of a precious cat that, due to unfortunate circumstances, needs to be re-homed. Though most of these cats will be free or very inexpensive, some cats were originally purchased from a breeder and are pedigreed so they will cost a bit more. Ask for registration papers and proof of vet care for the pedigreed cats.
Beware of the infamous Backyard Breeder! These breeders don't belong to a club, don't have papers or medical records for their kittens and only care to make money. They don't follow the rules for quality breeding or care. If you spot one on our site please let us know so we can remove them.
Does it cost for sellers?
It's free to join and list kittens for sale or adoption. Free accounts will show basic information and may accept messages from interested buyers though the messages will be locked until you or the buyer upgrades. Upgraded memberships start at 9.99 per month. Upgraded listings are shown above free listings when possible, extra contact details are shown and descriptions are shown. Most importantly, all current messages are unlocked and any messages received during your upgrade will be unlocked for you to read and respond. We are dedicated to bringing you great cat loving buyers - if ever you are unsatisfied contact us and we'll make it right.
Why do some listings have ads?
In order to supplement the high cost of advertising and website maintenance we must have ads. Unfortunately, advertising doesn't bring in much income.
Where do you advertise?
Here is the important part for sellers. We handle the paid advertising and
social network marketing to find buyers so you don't have to. We have
paid advertising, free organic traffic and social networking traffic. We use
the location of available kittens and their breed type to bring in the
most targeted traffic. Our presence on social network sites (e.g.;
facebook, twitter) is growing as well. As of March 21st 2016 we have added an outgoing feed to oodle.com, locanto.com and will be feeding out to other classifieds as we find them. We are
continually seeking new advertising avenues so you can spend more time
doing what you do best; caring for your kittens and cats.
Does it cost for buyers?
You may come across sellers that have not upgraded to the premium membership. If a seller has a kitten or cat that you are
dying to meet, you may send a message and wait for them to upgrade their account or you may upgrade your account for $5.99 in order to
communicate with any seller for 30 days.
