Dear future kitten parents,
Bonjour! Hope you're staying well! Welcome to FIKASNOW™ Cattery! We are a registered cattery recognized by renowned cat associations TICA, CFA and WCF. We are situated in Vancouver on the beautiful west coast of British Columbia, Canada. We specialize in British Shorthair/Longhair and Scottish shorthair cats, with colors of silver, golden and blue golden shaded.
We are proud that we follow the Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct of TICA, CFA and WCF, and breed cats in an ethical and scientific way. All our breeding cats are direct descendants of Grand International champions, World Champions, Grand European Champions and International Champions! Each has gone through a full set of DNA and genetic tests (50+ tests) and has annual health exams. We are constantly learning feline genetics, nutrition, behaviors and development because we care for the health and happiness of each kitten. All cats are cage-free. We aim to breed cats that are of a socialized personality, outstanding appearance, and above all, healthy and happy!
Our cats are part of our family and we take care of them with a lot of love and passion. We genuinely wish their future families treat them the same as well. We will interview each of our future kitten families because we want the best for our kittens and want them to grow up in a loving, responsible and permanent home. Due to the current pandemic situation, in-person visits are not possible; alternatively, we are open to video calls to assess future families and ensure they’re capable of providing loving and permanent homes.
Typically, kittens go home after recovering from spaying/neutering surgeries at the Cattery around the age of 4.5-5 months old; at the moment, the process of reserving Scottish and British kittens is slightly different. We provide a contract and offer a comprehensive package, such as vaccinations, deworming, health exams, health reports, Microchip, TICA/CFA/WCF registration, health insurance, LIFE-LONG genetic health guarantee (BSH/BLH), food, litter and customized items specially for your kittens. Apart from providing consultation in the long term, we offer each family a Kitten Parent Handbook - we have spent a lot of hours writing our experience and useful resources in order to help new families get fully prepared for kitten's arrival. We'll generously share everything we know about cats with future kitten families! Pedigrees and breeding rights are possible to be offered to other professional breeders/catteries that share a similar mindset.
We prioritize families that are located in Canada (preferably in the Great Vancouver Area); if you are located in other places, please feel free let us know and we'll discuss a safest way of delivering the kitten, whether to pick up in person, to travel with a flight nanny or other possible options.
