About Kioko Kittens
Kioko kittens are registered with the Cat Federation of Southern Africa. They are raised on Hill’s Kitten and a combination raw diet and leave our home at 16 weeks of age (no exceptions), confident and playful, with a hamper full of goodies. We do not sell kittens for breeding purposes outside of our circle, but will consider export for exceptional babies.
Each kitten is given individual attention to ensure that their temperaments are sound and that the kitten is able to adjust with ease in his new home. With this in mind, introducing a new kitten to your household should be a delicate process, carried out with as much patience, love and encouragement as possible. We expect kittens to be treated with the same love and care that they have grown accustomed to in our home.
These breeds may take up to 8 weeks to settle into a household completely and adjust to their new environment and our Kitten Manual is comprehensive enough to answer most of your questions and give you valuable information to make the right choices for and care for your new baby. That being said, we are just a click away should you have any questions.
A holding fee is required to secure your kitten, which is included in your adoption fee. Extra mentorship is given to those who wish to show their kittens and a mentor may be appointed, if you are not in KwaZulu Natal, to assist you with your first few shows. We provide a comprehensive adoption agreement with a guarantee, and we recommend that new owners sign up to Medi Pet to cover the kitten for any accidents or illnesses.
If you intend to shop around, but have contacted us to be on our waiting list, please let us know so we can avoid double bookings with other breeders. It is important that we are aware if you have reserved kittens elsewhere, so we do not fill up your inbox you with further correspondence. We would be happy to refer you to our sister breeders should we not have kittens available. Please feel free to CONTACT US for a full breakdown of our adoption fees and info on how to make a booking and reserve your kitten.

Available Young Adults & Retirees
From time to time we have available teenagers or retired breeding cats that need loving homes. These cats are perfect for households that would prefer not to have a busy, hectic kitten and are looking for an Oriental, Peterbald or Siamese to love and care for into his/her old age. An adoption fee will apply to carry out a final vet checks, inoculation and sterilisation, and they will be sold with an Adoption Agreement. We are very careful about where these cats are homed as they are adults with particular needs. We do not want them to end up in welfare under any circumstances!
We feed and recommend Hill’s Ideal Balance & Hill’s Science Diet and are members of the Hill’s Breeder’s Association.

Happy Kioko Kitten Slaves
I just can’t explain the love I get from my cat – he is pure affection and joy. He is a part of our family, with a personality like no other! He has been super healthy since he was a baby and he blesses our lives every day. Plus, he is just gorgeous – our skinny supermodel Stig.Nicole Capper
Just want to let you know how much joy Wara brings us. He is an absolute darling, so sweet and gentle and shares so nicely between Jax, myself and her friend Kevin – the dog. He meets any newcomer without a problem. Sticks his arm on them and proceeds to love them. Such an easy going kitty.
I purchased a teenage Siamese from Kioko cattery in 2016. I was very impressed with the comprehensive and informative website. Contacting Nicole was met with quick responses, and it soon became clear that I was dealing with a professional and dedicated breeder. I was blessed with a lovely young cat, who is well adapted, healthy, balanced and happy. I was so satisfied with the experience, that I elected to buy another kitten from Nicole, and had an opportunity to meet her at a cat show in Pretoria in 2017. I am soon to be a mommy to a Peterbald, and simply cannot wait! I am happy to recommend Kioko Cattery to anyone who wishes to purchase a feline baby of their own.Jenny Pieters
I just want to say thank you so much for my beautiful for my beautiful boy Kitsune who I collected on 22 December 2016 at 18 weeks old. I was so very impressed with how Nicole looks after her mommies, daddies and babies. The Cattery was so clean and all the cats were so beautiful, I wanted to take them all home with me! I would recommend Nicole from Kioko Cattery to anyone who wants a beautiful healthy and confident kitten, the best decision I have ever made!Bracha Smith
I would just like to thank you Nicole for the professional way in which you dealt with me as a client of Kioko. When I chose my little Natsuo, you were so helpful in keeping me updated from week to week with beautiful photos and his progress. It was a long wait but very well worth it. My Nate has turned out to be a lovely natured cat and for that I thank you. All in all I will definitely be getting my next Oriental or Peterbald from you later this year. Please keep me updated and thank you so much for my beautiful fur child. You rock!Kathy Watson
