    'Thank you for your enquiry and offer. I'm sorry, I don't accept offers on my kittens and this is not a matter for discussion.'
    Hope the tummy bug clears up soon :(

    Out of curiosity why do you look for indoor homes?

    I think you will find that the majority of pedigree breeders look for indoor homes. FOr a variety of reasons

    a) the cats are breed to be VERY sociable and will go off with anyone
    b) the risks of traffic, poisoning and bully boys is huge
    c) these cats, because of their breeding, often have zero road sense and end up under the wheels of a car
    d) they are a theft risk - often differently coloured and stolen to order
    etc

    So only Stephen Hawking could buy one, then? Bit harsh on the rest of us.

    If that's exactly as the enquiry was written then

    Dear X

    Thank you for your enquiry offering 100 for a kitten. I do however think we need to narrow the parameters ever so slightly. I would obviously accept 100 Ferraris, maybe even 100 Mercedes or BMWs (higher end models only of course). I would even consider 100 gold sovereigns if you gave me good reason for offering such a major discount.

    Anywhere from £350 to £1000 (sphynx!) depending on breed. You can get them cheaper BUT you won't get a guarantee they are what the 'breeder' says they are, they won't have had their jabs or been neutered, and will leave home far too early.

    Mine are between £375 and £425

    Some are - Spid has hers spayed/neutered before leaving. I have a contract which states that kittens must be neutered by 6 months but do point out that it can be done earlier than that.

    It's obvious they don't buy quality anyway. Their keyboard is missing a £ key, a bit like those people who buy expensive new cars without working indicators :)
