Important Notice

It has come to the attention of the Birman Cat Club Committee that there is a huge increase in demand for kittens. This has resulted in some unethical selling practices by backyard breeders, as well as adverts intending to scam potential new kitten owners and indeed our breeders themselves. We advise anyone looking for a new kitten please to read the guidance on the GCCF site which has been posted recently due to the high number of complaints received by the GCCF. This guide will help you to understand what to expect when buying a pedigree kitten and the importance of correct paperwork when buying your pet.

There is also a link posted by Cats Protection to help all domestic cat & kitten owners.

Please note that some of the adverts state pedigree crosses. These are not full pedigree and are basically moggies and as such should not obtain the high prices asked for. The complete absence of registration would imply that either the kitten might not be a full pedigree, or that the breeder has used a cat for breeding without getting the necessary permissions from the original owner. A registration that doesn't show the breeder as the owner, or where the prefix doesn't belong to the breeder, could well imply that the kitten has already been sold on and the person purporting to be the breeder may well just be looking to profit from buying and selling kittens.

Kittens can range in price from £750 to £1000. Show quality and breed quality are an additional cost and subject to negotiation with the breeder.

The Birman Cat Club holds the following list of kittens looking for homes.
Please contact the Breeder indicated for more details should you be interested in one of these kittens.

Information for Prospective Kitten Owners

Members of the Birman Cat Club are permitted to advertise their litters on this list upon payment of a fee which is paid to the Birman Cat Club Welfare and Rescue charity.

It should be noted that The Birman Cat Club has not assessed, inspected or checked the breeders, their premises or the kittens on this list. The Birman Cat Club will not take any responsibility for the general health of the kittens. The purchaser is strongly advised to carefully check any kittens that they are proposing to purchase and to read the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy Code of Ethics for Breeders and Owners.

Kittens can be registered by a breeder under different registration organisations. If you are buying a kitten you intend to show or breed from under either the GCCF, TICA or FiFE rules, please ensure that the breeder is registering the kitten with the most appropriate authority for you. If not you may have to re-register the kitten yourself after purchase. This may be both time consuming and costly.

Prospective kitten owners wishing to purchase pedigree kittens are reminded that they should not purchase kittens from or go to stud with any breeder currently suspended by the GCCF. Any kittens purchased from, or resulting from such a mating, will not be registered by the GCCF. Please refer to the GCCF Suspension List for a list of breeders currently suspended.
