You see a kitten you would like to purchase but you don't know how to proceed from here? This is
what you do.
1. Decide if you are close enough to come see the kitten. Keep in mind that you will NOT be
able to tell the personality of a kitten until it is at least 7wks old. Prior to that, they all act very similar.
Between 7-10wks you will notice differences in each kitten.
YES- Email me to set up a time to meet the kittens as long as they are 6wks old.
NO- That is ok too. I can email you pictures of the kitten as it grows. Keep in
mind that if there are any health or temperament concerns I will notify you and you may have your money back if you choose.
2. If you know which kitten you like and are ready to send a deposit on the kitten, just send me an email
and tell me "I would like the female kitten #1, or the one with the green collar, etc..... when my kittens look very similar
I put colored collars on them. If the kitten is posted on my site as "AVAILABLE" then it is still available. If
it is posted as "PENDING DEPOSIT" that means I have a request for the kitten and have been told the deposit is in the mail.
I give families 7 days for the deposit to arrive.
3. When I receive your email telling me you want the kitten, I will then email you a "purchase agreement."
You must read this. It has my expectations of you as the new owner and spells out my obligations to you as well. This
purchase agreement must be printed and returned to me with the deposit. While I am waiting for it to arrive I will NOT sell
the kitten to another family. The kitten will be posted as "pending deposit." It is very important that you return it to me
within 7 days or I will assume you no longer want the kitten.
4. When I receive your deposit the kitten will be marked as SOLD so you know I received it. Final
payment for the kitten is due when you come to pick up your kitten.
5. FLYING YOUR KITTEN HOME? This is very simple to do. To fly a kitten home I will need:
-The full name of the person picking up the kitten at
the airport because they check ID.
- Your airport name and code (Example mine is GRR)
-Your cell number or contact number for the airport incase there is a problem
Then I have to bring the kitten to my vet for a Health Certificate which
is required by the airlines. The Health Certificate is good
for 10 days so once I have the Health Certificate I must fly the kitten to you during that time period or another one will
have to be obtained.
Kittens cannot fly if it is hotter than 80
degrees or less than 10 degrees on either end. The last thing I do is Book
the flight. This is not done way ahead of time. The flight is usually booked two days before the kitten flies
home. Why? Because the airline looks at the high and low temps at each stop to make sure they are above 10 degrees.
They also look at availablility in the temperature controlled cargo area. Sometimes a flight
will come in early or be delayed.
PRICE FOR FLYING A KITTEN IN THE US IS $350 TOTAL.
