The International Cat Association, Inc.

Voluntary Code of Ethics

I am a member in good standing of The International Cat Association, Inc. (TICA) and have a TICA-registered cattery.

I will breed discriminately, and only if I can find appropriate homes for my kittens.

I will place kittens only in homes that I believe will provide a life-long commitment of love, appreciation, and responsible care.

Any kitten or cat sold as a pet/companion will be sold under the following conditions:

  1. I will guarantee that the kitten/cat is in good health at the time of sale.

  2. I will urge the purchaser to have the kitten/cat examined by the purchaser's own veterinarian within a few days of purchase to confirm its good health.

  3. I will explain to the purchaser the dangers of an outdoor environment.

  4. I will provide a written sales agreement that describes all the terms of the sale. I will abide by my own sales agreement.

  5. I will make every effort to spay/neuter every kitten/cat prior to leaving Breeder. If this should not be possible, I will require that the kitten be spayed or neutered no later than 12 months of age and not be allowed to produce any offspring. I will provide the TICA registration certificate and/or pedigree for the kitten/cat only after I have received written evidence from a licensed veterinarian that the kitten/cat has been altered.

  6. I will not release a kitten until it has been inoculated at least twice against the following: Panleukopenia, Feline Rhinotracheitis, and Calicivirus. I also may choose to give other vaccinations.

Savannah Heightz is a small in-home cattery based out of Snohomish County; that specializes in producing unique F3-F4 Savannah kittens with a wild look. Our cats are bred to maintain and further develop the Savannah breed standard with a direct emphasis on large ears, long legs and a Majestic spotted pattern. All of our cats are raised inside our home as a family with our two daughters and dog. Savannah Heightz cats have the luxury of a large indoor-outdoor enclosure to move freely as they indulge with many toy options to amuse their natural curiosity and wild side. From their enclosures or harness they get to experience a farm life on our Property with our other animals and horses. Our feline companions also enjoy accompanying us on various outdoor travels (parks, mountains, ocean or a simple errand) as they are fully socialized.

Our cats have been hand-picked from some of the most experienced breeders and bloodlines, “Wyldthingz of Northern California” and “Kessavannah of Northwest Illinois” with blood lines of “Wyldthingz, WESA, African Image, Bodicats and Kessavannah. Our cattery is a Felv ( Feline leukemia virus), PKD (Erythrocyte Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency) N/N and PRA (progressive retinal atrophy) N/N cattery assuring the priority of producing healthy kittens. Savannah Heightz cats and kittens receive routine veterinary care from our local licensed veterinarian.
