Available Kittens
    Our waiting list is maintained by e-mail and it is incumbent on the interested buyer to maintain contact on a regular basis; we're happy to answer email inquiries with an update on litter due dates.

We require all potential "cat parents" to review and sign a detailed sales contract. The contract is fairly detailed and states in part that the cat must not be declawed or allowed outdoors.

All kittens leave fully vaccinated for FVRCP, and have been examined by a licensed veterinarian and with a health and genetic health guarantee. Our catteries are FeLV and FIV negative. All of our cats are registered with CFA and sold with registration papers.

Our first priority for our breeding program IS our breeding program. Determining which cats, if any, have breeding and/or show potential can take time. Because of this, those cats deemed to be show quality or breeder quality take priority over general pet waiting list. Therefore, we reserve the right to not sell any cat until the time of sale. The determination as to whether a kitten will be available will be made no later than 14 weeks of age. Finding perfect homes for these babies is a major responsibility and one of the most difficult things we do. We screen thoroughly until we are sure that our precious ones are in homes where they will be cherished and pampered. We know our babies and their needs better than anyone and as such, we reserve the right to refuse sale to anyone at any time.

At Friemoth Family Cats, we take great pride in raising our kittens in our home with our family, providing premium nutrition, and preventative veterinary care, ensuring that you will get a well adjusted, healthy, and loving pet that will have a life expectancy of 13-20 years. We do not allow our kittens to leave our home until they are 16 weeks of age, and all kittens and retired adults will have been completely vaccinated, spayed or neutered, as well as having a written health guarantee. We prefer to sell our kittens as pets or into show alter homes, but occasionally consider allowing them go with breeding rights to select homes. If you are interested in a kitten as a breeder, please email credentials as well as personal, professional, and veterinarian references for consideration. Below you will find pictures of the kittens and retired adults we have available in all breeds.

Retired Adults

CFA GC NuDawnz At First Sight


"Kylie" is a blue cream lynx point & white bicolor Ragdoll female who was born 11/2/2020 who we will be seeking a forever home for this summer. She hasn't produced a litter and we've decided to close this chapter of her life. She is very sweet and gets along with non-dominant cats. She will be spayed and have a dental cleaning, as well as up to date on vaccinations prior to leaving. She is Optimal Selection DNA tested and clear for all inheritable diseases. For more information, please email


Murrznpurrz Heart of NuDawnz


"Heart" is a brown patched classic tabby American Shorthair female who was born 2/2/2019. She has had two litters of kittens and is now retired. She is a wonderful girl and gets along well with others. She has been spayed and is up to date on her vaccines. For more information about Heart, please email


RW QGC NuDawnz Up to No Good


"Goodie" was born December 14, 2021, and had a very successful show career in TICA, but unsuccessful career as a mother, which we have decided to retire her from. She is a stunning seal tortie point Siamese and loves everyone she meets, two or four legged. She is extremely outgoing and would be a good candidate to continue showing as an alter, or with someone with an active home. She loves our children especially.  She is looking for her forever lap to love. Email for more information.


NuDawnz Natsukashii


"Natsukashii" is a beautiful mi-ke Japanese Bobtail longhair (well, more medium hair) female who was born 8/21/21. We haven't been successful in getting a litter out of her and think it's best to move on from this chapter of her life. Please email us for more information.
