We do require a non-refundable deposit
We are not a pet store... we don't just sell our kittens to anyone without the funds to buy one and provide necessary essentials i.e food, veterinary care, immunizations and medications as needed – we require the buyer to provide information about the home the kitten/cat will be going to. Such as other pets, children, name of vet etc. We try to place them in homes which we feel are the best match for both the kitten AND the adoptive family.
By the time our kittens leave for their new homes, they have been fully vaccinated, de-wormed and either spayed or neutered by breeder or by buyer by six months of age if being purchased as a pet. Kittens are at least 13 - 16 weeks old before they are placed in a new home - if you'd like to know why we wait that long, and why you should avoid purchasing a very young kitten, please read this article. All of our kittens are also placed with a contract - if you'd like to review our contract we have provided it here, or you can email me.
Occasionally, we have cats that are retiring from our breeding program that will be available to a loving home. Our retired cats have been part of our family for several years when they leave, and we want only the best for their "retirement" home - a home where they can live the rest of their lives being loved and spoiled. Finding a new home for these cats doesn't mean we don't love them anymore, it just means we wish to be responsible breeders and keep the number of cats in our house at a level comfortable for both us, and the cats. As with the kittens, all retired adults placed will be current on all vaccinations, healthy, and already spayed or neutered.
