Birman Cat Can Be Yours Very Easily
Because of the rapidly increasing interest in Birman cats, we have figured out a more user-friendly way for potential owners to be aware of an opportunity to get a sweet Birman kitten.
What is that user-friendly way? It is a very easy two-step process. First, you send us a deposit of a 25 per cent of your future cat’s cost. Then, as soon as we get a Birman kitten just right for you, we will deduct the already paid sum of the overall price of the cat and finalise the payment when you arrive to take your new companion home.
Since our Birman cats are extremely dear to us, we take a good care of them and raise them with love.
- During the first three months of the Birman kittens’ life, we carefully make them a part of our daily routine to guarantee the kittens are used to an ordinary daily life.
- We only breed Birman cats for you to be able to appreciate these beautiful and lovely creatures and to make them a part of your family.
- From time to time we in fact keep several kittens for yourselves or fellow breeders that work on preserving specific gene pool.
- After the initial three months, the rest of the Birman kittens are for sale. However, priority is given to those customers who have submitted the aforementioned 25 per cent deposit. Therefore, the deposit is extremely important in guaranteeing yourself a lovely kitten.
When we say goodbye to our kittens, we do want you to take an extremely good care of them, just like we do, hence we would like to ask you to keep your kitten out of danger while indoors:
- ensure there are no vehicles close
- observe the house so that no other animals are with your kitten unwatched
- do not allow your cat get into wildlife
- regularly get your kitten checked for fleas and ticks
- make sure no-one steals your animal
Having all these points in mind, we are currently looking for owners who are fine with keeping their Birman cats indoors at all times. In case you find this challenging, please look for other breeders who would fit your needs better.
When the Selection Is Over
When you have selected your Birman kitten, you might not have the time to visit us often and see how your kitten is turning into a healthy cat. Nonetheless, we are more than happy to help you in this case. We are dedicated to send you as many photos and videos as you wish to track the happy days of your kitten. It is always nice to keep pictures of your pet from a very early age.
- For you to get enough time to obtain all the necessary things ready for your cat’s arrival, we will provide you with information on your kitten’s diet, litter box usage, and any other relevant products that would improve your pet’s life.
- It is extremely important for us to assure our kittens are being taken care of properly, so please explore our website to find all the useful tips and advice on how to provide everything for your Birman cat.
- Another aspect we consider carefully is the most suitable time for you to collect your Birman cat after the first twelve-week period of its life.
- At the time of the pickup, your cat will be completely de-sexed and will have a microchip implanted for your greatest convenience.
- We will provide your kitten with the first required vaccination 8 weeks after its birth. It will be periodically check for any dangerous conditions and properly wormed.
- The de-sexing procedure and the microchip implant surgery are performed at the 10th week or your cat’s life.
- Approximately at this time we will contact you to give you contact details for your future appointment.
- One week later we will confirm all the information related to the collection and, if needed, shipping details. Thus at the 11th week is when all payments are finalised and processed.
- Remember that the Birman kitten can be collected only when there is no debt on your part.
- The last vaccine is given to your kitten at the 12th week, before it is collected.
After You Receive Your Pet
When the kitten reaches you, it:
- knows how to use the litter box
- is used to eating a variety of balanced foods and is fully weaned
Nonetheless, you still have to get a yearly booster needle to make sure your pet is safe from other environment threats.
Before the pet reaches your house, the worming it receives will be continuous and fully updated. The brand we prefer is Ambex 2. In case you want us to keep flea control, we highly suggest Advantage for Cats. At the time of departure your Birman kitten will be nicely bathed and, naturally, with no bugs or other parasites. In addition, you will receive a package with all necessary kitten care as well as a couple of toys and a lovely blanket.
Officially Approved By QFA
At no point of your kitten collection process you should worry. We are officially registered with the Queensland Feline Association and operate according to their rules and regulations. All our cats come with an official pedigree since they are also registered with QFA. We always encourage our clients to pick a name for your new pet early so that we could put it on the official pedigree certificate.

A warning to potential buyers
We recommend that if you are purchasing a Birman from a pet shop be very cautious when you buy it because you may not be getting what you paid for. We have been notified on many occasions that unregistered breeders are selling off non-pure bred Birmans. Most of the time these kittens do not have any white on their paws, (white paws are a dominant gene of the Birman). A pet Birman sometimes does not have fully white paws or the whiteness may not extend as high up the ankle as with exhibition Birmans, however these kittens will always have some white on their paws. Also, the Birman cat always has blue eyes, they may be deep blue or a pale blue, but they are always blue.
If you are not sure, speak to us, as you can always count on registered breeders. If you are replying to an advertisement and the price seems very cheap it’s most likely that what you’re getting is a cross-bred cat, or it does not come from a registered breeder.
What to know about cat furniture and the cat tree
Cats are incredible animals and pets that can make lifelong friends and companions. They do have some less then exciting qualities sometimes however, particularly when it comes to their claws and it can be a very frustrating thing to come home and find drapes, furniture or other items torn to pieces because they dug their claws into them and scratched them up.
A great solution to this is to purchase for them a cat tree or other feline furniture, which is designed to help give them something that they can continue this activity on that also will not be destroying something important. There is a lot of these types of products out there in the market and it can be a little bit overwhelming sometimes when you are trying to decide which is the right one for your cat. There are a few things that are a good idea to keep in mind when you are considering one of these items, and once you understand these it can be an easy decision.
To begin with the important thing to keep in mind is that this is a place for your cat to have a safe and relaxing play to play, scratch and climb. You will want to make sure that it is secure and appropriately designed. This includes having poles that are covered in good high quality sisal, which is a specially created rope that actually expands further the more dry it gets. This is perfect for giving your cat something effective to dig his or her claws into.
With this in mind it is surprising that there is still one of the craziest ideas that still floating around in the market place for cat furniture. When you are buying something like a cat tree because your cat is ripping up your carpet, why would you want to have it covered in carpet? How do you expect the cat to distinguish where it is that it should be doing this activity? There are also others that will feature upholstery, which again is just confusing for the cat.
Although there is certainly no guarantee that using a cat tree or any other type of cat furniture will keep it from clawing up your other household items, there is certainly a better chance if you don’t make it more confusing.
In regards to the right and appropriate kind of material to use on these items there is a high quality fabric called faux that is very durable and washable so it will also last. The items that are covered in faux can last for years withstanding loads of abuse, whereas the items covered in carpet can be torn to shreds in a matter of months.
Litter Training, Claw Training & More
While your new kitten will be litter box-trained when it arrives, you need to establish good habits in the new environment. Upon arrival, confine the kitten to the space where the litter box is to be kept (or the bathroom, if that’s not possible).
When the kitten is more settled, gradually open out the rest of the house so your kitten gets used to the larger space and is not caught out when it comes time to use the litter box. This reduces the chances of fear of strange places unsettling good litter box habits.
Put the cat tree in the small space where the kitten is initially housed, in order to keep up good scratching habits. As your kitten gets more of the run of the house, place the tree in the room where you spend most of your time.
The cat wants your company, so placing the tree where you most often spend your time encourages maintenance of good scratching habits and spares the furniture, floors and curtains.
If the kitten does pick up some bad habits, change the room around a bit, to make it less inviting, use double sided tape as a deterrent, by making the surfaces sticky, or use one of the available sprays to make the smell of the spot unpleasant for the errant kitten (humans can’t smell it!).
Make surfaces unappealing by spreading out vinyl place mats covered in double-sided tape. Even clever kittens who try to walk between strips can still be deterred by using enough of this tape.
Don’t use your fingers as toys or playthings for the kitten and it will not scratch or bite them. Wiggle small toys in front of the kitten instead, so it learns that fingers aren’t toys. You’ll both enjoy it more and when the kitten tires of playing, you can bond through petting.
Time out – when the kitten is naughty and persistently won’t behave, immediately place it in a small room like the bathroom with a firm “No!”.
Leave it there for about fifteen minutes or until it quietens down. They kitten wants to be around the action so it will quickly learn to behave if it wants your company. It’s also a good way to teach it to play more gently.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have about the care of your kitten. We’re here to help.
Pet quality kittens come with the spay/neuter clause in the agreement.
Our hope is that our kittens, whether pet or breeder, will be loved: they won’t be left to wander around outdoors, won’t be declawed unless absolutely necessary, won’t be dumped in a shelter or passed on before the breeder has looked for an alternative home.

The history of the Birman cat
The legend of the Birman cat is a remarkable story but explains little of the true origins of this beautiful breed. The cat was in existence in France during the 1920’s but unfortunately the breeding history was lost during World War II. Though there is knowledge that two Birman’s survived the war in France.
The continuation of the Birman after such a massive setback shows how dedicated this particular cat lover is. It wasn’t until 1955 that the Birman breed was recognised again and returned to full registration.
In 1956 Birman cats were imported to America for the first time then sent to England in 1960. The first Birman did not set its paws onto Australian soil until 1967. A Sydneysider, Mrs Judith Starky, introduced the Birman love affair to Australia.
Since their struggle from near extinction the Birman cat has developed a devoted following of dedicated breeders who have come under the spell of this most beautiful feline.
