Price kitten

How much is a true British kitten ? Let's look first. Most people have a stereotype that it's just a cat, even though a thoroughbred , then it may not cost much, that's like a thoroughbred dog - is another matter. And for some reason does not bother anyone that the cost of such a pug or chihuahua, rottweiler or doberman . Very often you can hear on the phone : " Why so expensive ? Others are much cheaper." Well, let's lay out everything on the shelves , from which one gets the value of a purebred kitten .


All kittens are divided into three classes:
Pet- class - this is the lowest class of kittens. Kittens of this class are any deviations from the standard of the breed , birth defects and shortcomings. This does not mean that they are any people with disabilities, just BRIimeyutsya deviations that do not allow you to participate in exhibitions. For example hair is too long , or the quality is not up to standard, the wrong color eyes, too pointy tail , malocclusion , or a speck in the wrong place , and so on. These kittens are only for content as pets , they do not participate in shows and breeding . But they are the same British cat with the same temperament and character, and if you have the above does not matter , you can opt for a kitten in this class. Kittens pet- class have the lowest cost . In Russia the cost of a kitten pet- class is 500 - $ 700
Breed- class - the so -called middle class , they are animals that are minor deviations from the standard, allow them to engage in exhibitions. Such animals may be involved in breeding , and to be pets. The cost of a kitten breed- class is 700 - 1000 USD
Show- Class - animals of the highest exhibition class , and they must fully comply with all the standards of the breed , they should not be any deviation. They make the highest demands , but the price of kittens will start from $ 1000 or more. Please be aware that cats are only two classes - the pet and show class cats breed-class does not exist. This is due to the fact that the judge shows a very strict approach to the assessment of exactly cats manufacturers, and if there is at least some or deviation from the standard , the cat can not be assigned to show the class .

PRICE KITTEN depending on the manufacturer

Any reputable breeder and kennel owner seeks to have the cats in her cattery elite producers . Finding a good producer - quite a difficult task. And, as a rule , the price of such products will start from $ 1000 Sometimes the manufacturer has to look good in foreign nurseries , which account for kittens begins six months before they are born. It takes a lot of time, money on phone calls and delivery of animal emotions and spent nerves . As a result, the cost of a good manufacturer can reach 2 or $ 3000 But even if the kennel has its own cat - producer , in order of selection is necessary to resort to the services of third-party manufacturers. The cost of binding also defines an important component of the cost of a kitten. And the cost of mating with a good producer can range from 300 to 1000 units At present, unfortunately what is called " cheapening " the breed , many breeders do not care much about the search and acquisition of good purebred producers , and often are made with knitted manufacturers , whose pedigree is not quite thoroughbred . These manufacturers usually many times cheaper , like knitting with them. Hence, the relative cheapness of the kittens, in pedigrees which may be present such as Scottish straight . None of what purebreeding there is no longer out of the question . Kittens of course the passport will be British, but those were not really . It's like there is real Swiss watch, and there is a Chinese fake, like all the same , and did not immediately tell the difference , but there are not very accurate , and break down all the time. With kittens all exactly the same , like the British , but the wool is "a bit " is not the same head is not of that form , the ears are not so delivered. Maybe for someone it will not matter , since the decisive factor is the lower price of the kitten , but if you want to find yourself a really vysokoporodistoe animal , it's not your choice.


The cost of feeding and maintenance of a kitten up a very large , if not the bulk of the cost. To British kitten has evolved from a small lump into a healthy and beautiful adult cat , he was a very young child should receive a quality balanced diet in the form of feed super premium class. It is also very important to give the kitten dressing of vitamins. Feed the kittens start with 3 weeks of age. Up to 1.5 - 2 months kittens still suck their mother's milk , but they have to be fed 3-4 times a day. Quite cheap and unhealthy kittens and cats feed type and Whiskas Kiteket we not take into account . Jars feed super premium class " Hills " or " Proplan " weighing 70 g. , One 1.5 month old kitten for about one day, 2 - month-old kitten eats 4-5 times a day, and these jars it needs about 2 day. The cost of one jar of about 50-55 rubles. , Using simple mathematical calculations, we can easily calculate the cost of feeding. Add to that the cost of vitamins, fresh raw beef, mandatory in the diet , a variety of natural baits , cat grass , and more. Do not forget also that pregnant and breast-feeding a cat - a mother, too, is not the holy spirit is nourished, it needs to have at least 4-5 times a day. Such as raw beef should be one -third of its diet , the cost of which comes to 400 rubles. per kg .
Another expendable when the content of the nursery - it is certainly a filler for the toilet. If you live in the house 5 cats , the example of one package lumps of filler 10 liters cost 800 rubles. , Enough for about 10-12 days, and the appearance of kittens consumption doubles respectively . Also, kittens for full development and training needs various toys, scratching posts , houses . To care for the kittens also need to buy a variety of combs, brushes, kogterezki , and a lot more all the different things .


Veterinary care - an important cost item self-respecting nursery. To the nursery were born healthy and strong kittens , which will continue to delight its future owners , a good breeder will be required annually to produce analyzes of all their animals . Various infections can accidentally get even in the indoor kennel , so regular inspection is a must. For successful treatment , it is important to detect the disease early on . Assays for animals did not cheaper tests for humans. For example carrying only a single analysis to a certain kind of infection in a cat costs about 1,000 rubles . As much as there are other tests . And if , God forbid detect the infection , then add here the cost of treatment, purchase of antibiotics, syringes , tablets, vet services and other stuff . Today the prices of medicines in pharmacies we all know , and that for people that for cats , drugs are the same. Vet is also not cheap, one time - consultation is an average of 500 rubles. Also needed are tests for inherited diseases that they are not passed on to future generations , the value of such analyzes in the area of ​​100-150 USD Routine vaccination of kittens is also free not to do, the cost of one vaccine Multifel -4 - 300 rubles. , Such as a kitten vaccinations need to do two , when he reaches 12 weeks of age and in exactly 21 days. The compatibility of manufacturers nursery for blood group , it is necessary to conduct analysis of the definition of blood, which leads to yet another additional cost.
Expenditure on advertising and participation in exhibitions
Advertisement - the motor trade ! Slightly paraphrasing that famous phrase , we can say that advertising - is the engine of the nursery . Of course then, when the nursery becomes known , it will not be particularly in need of advertising. After all, the glory of a good nursery is spread by word of mouth , on kittens from this nursery are recorded in six months or even a year in advance . Take for example the famous European nurseries . But if the nursery is good, but it is not so well known ? And this is where advertising can not do without it and site content , advertising , publications , professional photographer. Separately, it should be noted as a good means of advertising , participation in trade shows cats. To the glory of the animal kennel was thunder in the cat community can not do without the exhibitions . Assess the quality of breeding animals can only judge at the show, so participation in the exhibitions - one of the important components of life nursery. Well, as usual, respectively, participated in the exhibition is very costly affair. Participation in the exhibition of one cat and costs 2000 - 3000 rubles. , Add here involved in the show ring , the value of one of the ring 500 rubles. , The cost of veterinary inspection , purchase exhibitor booths and more. To close the titles to participate in exhibitions held in other cities and even countries. In this case, the usual trade fair costs are added costs of travel , accommodation , visas , veterinary certificates for crossing the border and transport allowances . In the end, everything is going in a very tidy sum .


In conclusion, I want to say that this article is not written for the purpose to show what a poor, wretched cat breeders . First of all, we have chosen this occupation , it is a passion and love for animals , it is if you want a disease , infected by that , it is impossible to recover . This article is primarily written to answer the question of why is it so expensive real purebred kitten from a British nursery. What do you think , considering all the costs , as described above , can the real British kitten from cattery be cheap ? We think that navryadli . If you are offered a kitten " for cheap " , think about what may or important item of expenditure was excluded from the content . Maybe it's poor quality feed , which may affect the future of animal health , or lack of proper veterinary care , and can save on manufacturers, and instead of a purebred kitten , you get a cat or a cat , " a la the British ." And what money can measure feelings , sleepless nights spent helping a cat in labor, the tragedy at the loss of a little kitten , in severe and prolonged labor. After all, things do not always go smoothly , it is only in the proverb says that only cats are born quickly . We hope that we will fully answer the question why so expensive?
