WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE:
We feed our kittens Royal Canin Baby Cat dry food and Wellness canned food. Our litter is Precious Cat. You will get samples of each in your babies "go home" goody bag. All these items can be found at pet stores & on-line.
Our Ragdoll cats and kittens are purebred and are TICA registered. Kittens usually become available at about 10-12 weeks of age, some are slower to mature and may need additional time. You will receive a TICA registration form after purchase. Buyers purchasing for pet/show will receive it when proof of altering is shown before the kitten is six months of age. Before a kitten leaves, there is a required spay/neuter legal contract agreement that must be signed. We do not practice early spay/neuter because there are more health risks when altering a kitten prior to four months of age by any method. All kittens are also sold with a written health and genetic guarantee. Buyers will receive a health record with age-appropriate vaccinations and dewormings. Above all, you will get your pre-spoiled bundle of joy who's ready for you to love!
PAYMENTS & DISCOUNTS :
We love to place our kittens in homes together, so we give discounts when purchasing more than one kitten from us. We reserve the right to refuse the sale of our cats or kittens at any time or to anyone we feel is not the right home for one of our cats. Full payment is due on/before your kitten leaves our home, and we only accept cash on the day your kitten leaves. You may pay in advance of arriving, via Pay Pal or check sent a minimum of 14 days in advance of picking up your kitten. Altering is required for kittens sold as pets. Kittens available as breeders come with full breeding rights. All kittens come with free showing rights.
RESERVING & WAIT LIST:
Kittens are reserved on a "first come, first serve" basis for clients with deposits. A kitten can be chosen by photos and videos (upon request). We will do our best to send out an email notification announcing when kittens will be posted to the website & Facebook page. Please send us an email if you wish to be contacted when kittens are posted.
While we know you may want to visit & choose a kitten, we are a closed cattery therefore we do not allow visitors. Visits are granted only to those picking up their kittens. This is for the health of our babies and mamas. Thank you for understanding.
Deposits are nonrefundable, but can be transferred to another available kitten or one of a future litter within 90 days of the deposit. So, if there is a situation that prevents you from completion of the purchase, a one time, new kitten selection will be allowed which must be made within 90 days after the deposit. There are No Cash or Credit Refunds - no exceptions. A deposit of $250 and $300 for breeders will reserve the kitten of your choice until he/she is ready to leave our home. Full payment is due on/before your kitten leaves our home, please note that we only accept cash on the day your kitten leaves. If you'd like to reserve one of our beautiful Ragdoll kittens, please feel free to email us !
A contract will be provided with each kitten purchased. The contract is intended to protect the seller, buyer, and most importantly, the kittens. Our contract states that if there is a fatality due to a genetic illness during the first year, the illness must be proven by a licensed veterinarian and a necropsy report. A replacement kitten will be offered when one is available. Each kitten has a 72 hour health guarantee. We must be contacted within 72 hours after leaving if there's a serious medical concern, diagnosed by a licensed vet ; returning the kitten and replacement will be offered. We will not be held responsible for any medical expenses.
We discourage declawing of our kittens, but understand there can be problem situations. We recommend Soft Paws. Most Ragdoll owners realize they are not aggressive cats and if given the proper scratching furniture, they will not damage your home, and rarely react aggressively with their claws.
If you give your kitten the Feline Leukemia and/or FIP vaccines, all guarantees will be void. It is in our best interest to not have any health issues and we do our best to ensure a safe, healthy purchase. All buyers will be required to sign our legal contract before kittens leave our home. Please read our contract before purchasing a kitten from us, you can do so by clicking on the following button: CONTRACT
All kittens are seen by our WONDERFUL vet : Paws & Claws Animal Hospital before they head home.
Please keep in mind when selecting and reserving kittens that all kittens need to be picked up within a week after the posted leaving date. If you cannot pick up your kitten within that week, please reserve a kitten leaving at a later time. All times and days must be confirmed within a week of the leaving date. If a scheduled time and day for pick-up is not confirmed within 2 weeks of the leaving date, the kitten shall be advertised as available and he/she will no longer be considered reserved and deposits will not be refunded. Leaving dates are determined by readiness of the kitten. We never try to "push" our kittens out the door, but we have kept kittens for up to a month (sometimes longer) after they were ready to leave. During those times, we're left unsure of whether the kitten is actually going to be picked up. We are not a kennel and cannot accommodate vacations or other events. We also do not want one kitten left all alone after the entire litter has moved on. This causes stress for the kitten, the mom, and all of us. The leaving date is based on age, ability, and required time for all preparation for leaving. If there is an unforeseen circumstance that arises which may cause a delay in picking your kitten up, please contact us, we're very easy to work with.
