I will not deny that. Many, many people have called me stating that they were able to find an Elf as low as $800, with a breeder willing to let it go home as early as 8 weeks. These people
call me in distress, as the mounting vet bills had cost them much more than my adoption fees. They watched as their kittens suffered with life long, or worse, terminal diseases.
Breeders who mass produce kittens and bargain discount the adoption fees are breeding the wrong reasons, do not properly scan, immunize, socially nurture the babies.
As a result, these kittens with under-developed immune systems go home to families that face mounting vet bills and lots of heartache.
I've seen the same excuses time and time again. A breeder will bargain price babies saying, "I'm getting out of breeding. This is my last litter." Or, "I don't ship so I only sell locally and charge less." My first concern is to raise
healthy cats whom are well socialized, raised in my hands, sleep next to me at night, are carefully scanned with proper preventative health care. Proper vet care doesn't come free, and the expenses are passed down to the
adoptive family. As the old adage goes, "You get what you pay for." Unfortunately, this impacts lives, and can be heartbreaking at the same time.
I do not let my kittens go home early, as they need time to mature their immune systems. I have a program that helps the new family bond with their baby before it heads home, even if they're long distance! I stand behind
my cats. You're not adopting a pet, you're adopting a new family member. Adoption is just the first step, as I offer continued care and advice. I welcome questions, pictures, stories and concerns. I have many references and
encourage you to check references on whomever you choose to adopt from. Make sure the breeder is in good standing with TICA (TICA.org) and demand that you see the parents. Each cat or kitten on this website was
hand-delivered during birth, and no matter how old or where they go, they'll always have a piece of my heart and will be my baby.
As with many new breeds, the risk of inbreeding not only can happen, but some breeder partake of this practice (called In-line breeding). At Vanyar and our associated breeders, we do not inbreed under any circumstances. To
keep the lines healthy, strong and true to the original vision, we diversify our lines using appropriate outcrosses. If you choose to go with a breeder that charges less and your cat dies or faces a life of illness and high vet
expenses, please do not call me to vent about it. I am truly tired of saying, "I told you so." Buyer beware.
