These puppies were born sometime December 2012. Their mother is a Dachshun / Shih Zhu mix, and the puppies look mostly Chihuahua / Dachshun. They will be ready for forever homes when they reach 8-9 weeks old (Around 2/15/13) after they are spayed and neutered.

Tipsy was born with a neurological condition where she falls over. She hopped to get where she wanted to go as a kitten. She has learned to slide her head down the cupboard to hold her head still to drink and not get all wet. The owner who has had her 10-12 years felt she didn't have enough time for her. Tipsy has had to have all her teeth removed and is still having a lot of pain in her mouth. We are not sure what the problem is? She needs constant medical attention.

Notice of Policies
• All kittens adopted through Mat Valley Kitties must be spayed or neutered between 4 and 6 months of age. Proof of altering must be sent to Mat Valley Kitties. This is critical to reduce cat overpopulation.
• Mat Valley Kitties cannot guarantee the health of the animals it places. Most kittens and cats have been fostered for a period of observation and any known conditions or ailments would have been treated. We maintain shot records on animals that have been fostered. Prospective adoptive families will be advised of any known conditions.
• Some of the kittens are microchipped. It is the adoptive families' responsibility to submit the necessary paperwork.
• There is a fee to adopt each of the Mat Valley Kitties. The fee helps cover some of the cost of caring for kitties, some of which need veterinary care. Most need vaccinations, some need medicines and all need food and litter. The adoption fee you pay helps perpetuate this charitable work. Adoption fees are based on age of the feline, type of cat and special circumstances.
• If you are unhappy with a Mat Valley Kitties animal, you may return the kitten to Mat Valley Kitties within 10 days for credit toward another animal. No full cash refunds are offered. Those returning an adoptive cat for cash will receive half of the adoption fee.
• If for any reason at any time you cannot keep your Mat Valley kitty, you are obligated to contact Mat Valley Kitties. The cat is not to be taken to any publicly run animal control facility. Mat Valley Kitties must be advised before any change in placement.
• We reserve the right to refuse to adopt any feline to anyone. Our first concern is the health, safety and contentment of the feline.
