Hi Susan: Just wanted to give you a quick update on Tyler. Arthur has found a new outlet for spending money - toys for Tyler. My kitchen and Great Room now look like war zones - there are toys everywhere. Years ago, when we first got our beloved Sneakers who has now passed over, I bought a play house for him with stairs and an opening at the top for him to crawl out of to look out the window and it also acted as a scratcher. He rarely, if ever, used it and I have had it sitting in the garage all these years. I brought it out when we got Tyler and I can't tell you how much pleasure he gets out of it. He is soooo strong. He jumps up and hangs on with one paw and then pulls himself up - he is in and out of it - sleeps in it, and stores all his toys in there. When he races across the rooms from kitchen to Great Room, it sound like a thundering herd of horses. And I still can't get over the fact that he absolutely has to be where we are. If I am in the utility room and sewing, he sits on the table and watches me or stares out the window. If I am not home and Arthur is in the den, he curls up in the chair just to be near him. And Arthur says that he is amazed at the bond that Tyler has with me. When he hears the car pull into the garage, he runs for the door and sits there and cries until I come in. I can't go two feet without him wrapping his legs around mine and begs to be picked up. I would have expected this as a kitten, but he is almost 7 months old (still kitten, I guess) and he is still doing this. Well, that's it for now. Hope all is well with you. Are you expecting any new litters? Would love to see some pictures. We have several favorite photos, but this one seemed to show him best. I forgot to mention that when Tyler wants to play (his decision not ours), he carries his feathered wand in his teeth and drops it at our feet as if to say, "let's go mom. I want to play." I have never known a cat who will spend at least 20 minutes in a throw and fetch mode. He seems tireless. Of course, after 20 minutes of running back and forth, he is ready to crash. Sleeping in the sun at the base of his play house, other than on our laps, seems to be his favorite. Love Gloria and Arthur P.S. At the moment he is asleep at my feet on the rug in the den. He is never more than a few feet from either one of us at any point in time.Read More Testimonials

7) Many people are not interested in kittens: We have Scottish Folds of many different ages, to fit into anyone's home or life style. The older cats are are beloved and appreciated companions, that thrive and appreciate just knowing they are the center of your world. Scottish Folds have a long life span, if cared for. The older cats can fill many voids: Seniors, who need a warm body therapy cat to keep them from the loneliness of an empty house. Empty nest families, due to children moving out and on to school to pursue their professions with new families OR beloved pet passing. Living with depression, a warm feline companion to touch, to care for, to listen when you talk to them, give affection, company, depend on you and make life happier. (ask your physician for a prescription, if they feel an animal will help you with your needs, even if you live where they don't allow animals, sometimes they will.) Everyone knows it is healthy to have human or animal contact, allowing us humans to nurture, carry on a conversation, have a warm body near, a therapeutic, companion to spend time with and happily greet you when you come home. Students, missing home, life style and daily family support. Students who are attending college, holding down a job and studying, need a laid back study buddy to greet them after they arrive home from a busy day and a bed buddy at night.
8) Shipping Day:
1) They have been through a routine Veterinarian Appointment for: Shots; Health Certificate.
2) Additional Charges requested by the Adoptee or Puchaser: These services provided by our staff OR our Veterinarian will be added to the Total Price Quote, if requested at the time of purchase. If these services are not requested at the time of purchase, this amount will need to be paid in full, prior to shipping. If your additional requests of service put us past the agreed shipping date, it may be better to get those things done after they arrive, all requests must be cleared and agreed to by Quietime Cattery Staff - things to consider prior to TOTAL PRICE QUOTE, if you would like them done here.
b) Spayed or Neutered, if old enough.

I do have some nice wireless warm bedding, where their own body heat keeps them warm, washable, nice looking and can use once they get home.

G) Shipping: EX: If necessary, when a connection takes longer than 6 hours lay over, on the ground, to make the connection with their next flight. It will REQUIRE additional KENNELING CHARGES, which don't happen often. I will contact the Kennel Facility and speak with them, making the arrangements, to have their staff pick up your Scottish Fold at the given time/date/airlines and have them back to the airport, checked in, in time for their connection flight. This time allows your Scottish Fold to get out of the carrier, drink, exercise. This can happen during the daytime OR overnight. *** I have never had to use these facilities unless I was shipping out of the USA.
H) Quarantine: EX: I do quarantines for Hawaii, a Total Price Quote = approximate total, because prices may need to be adjusted, with that much time inbetween. Additional charges must be paid in full two weeks prior to shipping.
1) It takes approximately 9 months to quarantine a new kitten = they must be 3 months old to begin x 2 Rabies Shots, with time inbetween each of them.
2) If it is a kitten or cat already past the 3 months age, the quarantine takes approximately 6 months.
3) Quarantines done at Quietime Cattery, allows the cat or kitten to be in a familiar less stressful environment with: food, schedule, an people they are comfortable with. Those lucky Scottish Folds going to paradise!
