Many people ask about how pricing works, so I wanted to add this explanation to give a general idea. The below order of pricing would be accurate when comparing kittens/cats who are identical in every other way, other than the colors discussed, or the patterns discussed below. But in real life, there are never 2 cats/kittens who are identical in every other way, so there will be variations on actual pricing which differ from the chart below. The variations will be based on TICA Show Standards (other than color/pattern) which involve the quality of eyes, ears, nose, whisker pads, face, tail, legs, overall size/shape/proportions, contrast, horizontal flow, and personality. An example of a variation could be a stunning Silver Marble kitten (similar to my Silver Marble queen Sophia) being priced higher than a plain brown rosetted kitten with poor rosettes. Another note about pricing is that when I set prices, the kittens are usually quite young, around 4-5 weeks. I set the prices based on what I predict the kitten will be like at 12 weeks old and into adulthood, based on my experience. But, if a kitten goes on to develop a flaw, such as a tail kink or a poor personality, during the following few weeks before the kitten goes home, I WILL REDUCE the price of the kitten accordingly, whether the kitten is reserved or not (and I have done so in the past). If that kitten is already reserved, the buyer will have the option to not get that kitten. Alternatively, I will never INCREASE the price of a kitten who already has a deposit placed on him/her.... but I do reserve the right to increase the price of any kitten who is NOT already reserved, if I see that the kitten is looking even better than expected or for any other reason. These color/pattern combinations are listed in order from the (generally) most popular/expensive at the top to the (generally) least popular/expensive at the bottom for PET kittens from my cattery. (I very rarely offer a kitten with breeding rights, but in that case, the price would be higher.)
Snow Rosetted - Most Expensive (Generally $1,800 - $4,000 range) Silver Rosetted Brown Rosetted Snow Marble Silver Marble Brown Marble - Least Expensive (Generally $800 - $1,200 range)
Melanistic & Charcoal versions of above colors are much more rare, and as such, are more expensive.
