Text Box: OWNING A SWAN FALLS   Burmese or Tonkinese kitten
All kittens leave here to an approved buyer with the health guarantee that they are healthy at the time of sale.

This breeder does NOT believe it is in the interest of your indoor only cat to be over vaccinated.
FIP and Leukemia vaccines are not given or recommended.

My kittens are vaccinated with a three way vaccine at 10 weeks.  It is up to you to read about vaccinating and make your own decision before talking with your vet what if any vaccinations you continue with.

Shipping is only an option with direct flights or neighboring states.  You can drive, hire a pet transport service or fly in and meet me at the airport for a kitten.  

I do have a simple contract as well that must be agreed to.

Please contact me personally if you would like more information on owning a Tonkinese or Burmese. 208-461-2003 or my email below. If you email me, let me know where you are located.

Text Box: Savannah (Tonkinese) kittens
Text Box: Experts have known about the adverse effects of over vaccination for years. Itís a practice that, according to a recent report from the American Animal Hospital Association Canine Vaccine Task Force, is completely unnecessary. Challenge studies are showing some vaccines protect animals for as many as seven years and possibly for life. But this information is nothing new. Recommendations for less frequent vaccination have been around since as early as 1978. In that year, states the AAHA report, ďan ideal vaccination program was recommended where dogs and cats would be vaccinated as puppies and kittens and then revaccinated at 1 year of age and every third year thereafter.

 ďIn 1998, the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) debated and subsequently endorsed this same recommendation for feline core vaccines; the AAFP recommendations were updated in 2000. Also in 1998, recommendations from a group of canine vaccine experts were published. They recommended revaccination with canine core vaccines no more than once very three years following initial booster revaccination at one year of age. This proposed vaccination program, and various iterations thereof, has been adopted to varying degrees by a growing part of the profession, but misunderstandings, misinformation, and the conservative nature of the profession have slowed adoption of these protocols advocating decreased frequency of revaccination.Ē And even though vaccine labels clearly indicate that vaccines should not be administered to animals with specific medical conditions, or those who have experienced adverse reactions in the past, this practice is still occurring in some cases.

Vaccinate but donít over vaccinate
We now know that annual vaccination of most vaccines after the initial series and one-year booster is at best unnecessary, and at worst, dangerous to your animalís health. So why are many animals still being vaccinated every year regardless of their health status? While the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) changed their vaccination protocols in 2002, itís not mandatory for veterinarians to follow these new protocols. Rather, the AVMA creates guidelines only and leaves decisions about how often your animal is vaccinated up to the individual veterinarian. That means itís up to you, as the main caregiver, to make sure your animal doesnít suffer the consequences of over vaccination.

Feline leukemia virus, or FeLV, is a virus that infects cats. It is related to FIV and HIV, the virus that causes human AIDS. There is no evidence that FeLV can infect humans.
Cats that are kept exclusively indoors in stable households have almost no chance of contracting FeLV. Maintaining cats in an indoor environment is the most effective way to prevent transmission of the virus. A vaccine against FeLV is available, but it may not be 100% effective. The FeLV vaccine has been linked to the development of tumors in some cats. The vaccine is recommended only for cats that have access to the outdoors
