If we do not have kittens posted or you are looking for a different type of kitten (size, sex, or color specific Mom or Dad) you can go to our Waiting List To be on our Waiting List, we require a $250 deposit that will be applied towards the purchase price of a kitten. There are advantages and disadvantages to this option. Advantages: You receive priority. We work with you to identify the type of kitten you want. If you are considering both sexes (male & female), or you have several colors or sizes that you are interested in, one deposit, of $250, will put you on our Waiting List for all of your choices. · When a kitten is 4-6 weeks old , we will evaluate the kitten for size, temperament and price the kitten, and take pictures of the kitten. Please do not ask us to take pictures prior to the kitten being evaluated. After a kitten has been evaluated and we have determined that a kitten meets your specifications (size, sex, and color), we will notify you based on where you are on the Waiting List. Once you are notified that a kitten has been evaluated and matches your specifications, we will email you pictures of the kitten and the kitten’s evaluation. Since we cannot hold kittens for an unlimited amount of time, you will have 48 hours to make a final decision. If we do not receive your decision within 48 hours, the kitten will be offered to the next person on our Waiting List or posted on our website as an available kitten. If you decide that you want the kitten, you can choose to have the kitten held for you by making a second deposit of $250 which is applied towards the purchase price of the kitten, or wait for another kitten to be born. Final payment is not due until the kitten is either picked up or until arrangements have been made for shipping. If you are not able to make a final decision the kitten will be offered to the next family on our Waiting List, or posted on our website as an available kitten. You will not lose your spot on our Waiting List, but you will need to wait until the next kitten is born. Deposits are non-refundable. Deposits can only be applied towards the next available kitten.

  • Recommendations:
    https://www.fearfreehappyhomes.com/bringing-home-new-kitten/ https://www.fearfreehappyhomes.com/kit/cats-101/#video_link2 Note Stressful situations, such as a new home, may illicit temporary signs of illness in the Cat which may include sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, or diarrhea /constipation. To reduce stress, especially the first few days in his or her new adoptive home, feed the Cat the same food as the Breeder has been using and offer bottled water. Introduce family members and other pets slowly for short periods at one time over several days or even weeks. Remember that the Cat may be frightened and does not understand what is happening to him or her. Keeping the kitty in a quiet spot with a little nest for a few days will give the Cat time to assimilate to his or her new life. It is recommended that the Cat remain quarantined for 14 days without contact with other cats to allow any possible incubating illness to present. Do not use any plastic dishes for food or water as it may cause allergy.
