|Siberian Kitten or
Cat Adoption Policy
|When you purchase something so important as a life-long
companion, there are expectations that you, the purchaser
have for us, the breeders. And we have expectations for
you, our customer, as well. The following are some of the
points you will note in our purchase contract with you:
|1. We will, by no means, sell one of our cats to someone who has plans to declaw
them. We spend countless hours with our kittens to make certain that they know what
a scratching post is so they leave your furniture alone. They are taught what 'no'
means, and their claws are clipped starting within the first few weeks of life, and
then weekly or every other week thereafter. They may not appreciate having the
procedure done, but they will tolerate it, especially if you give a treat afterwards,
and it becomes a routine event. You will find information in our kitten care section
explaining why declawing is looked upon as inhumane, and information on how to clip
your kittens claws.
|4. The cost of breeding and raising purebred animals is no minor expense. And we
give the VERY best to our cats and kittens, including our time for play and
socialization, top brand products and raw food for meals, and additives to assist in a
strong immune system. For all this, we still keep our customer adoption fees as low as
Pet quality Siberian 12 weeks old to 1 year - $850
Pet quality Siberian over 1 year - $700
Retired Breeders - this may vary according to their age, but anywhere from $500 -
$700 (this is pricing them extremely low since we also have these cats
spayed/neutered before going to their furever homes!)
We have price reductions for purchase of multiple kittens/cats
Show & Breeder quality kittens are $1500 - $1600. Contact us for further
information. [We sell breeder cats ONLY to people who may be referred by another
Breeder, or other reputable Breeders, and to people who are already Siberian
owners, who KNOW the breed and have only the Siberian Breed's best interest at
heart; for show cats, you MUST declare you intend to show the kitten/cat by the age
of 6 months - you are unable to show a cat unless you have their registration, and you
do not get their papers until their are spayed/neutered.
We will not be shipping kittens by air unless there are at least two kittens to be sent
together. To help with this change, we will continue to drive to meet people to deliver
their kitten/s - see below.
We are willing to drive to meet a customer 1/2 way from us
to make your drive easier. The cost for this is based on:
a) current gasoline/petrol prices
b) the distance that is driven - there is a $0.20 per mile surcharge
c) toll fees
Any and all policies are subject to change at anytime, so all final agreements
will be laid out in the written Kitten Contract that will be sent to you once you have
chosen your kitten, and what you must sign and send back.
The kittens are all registered by litter, and will have a number assigned
to them. Once you have presented documentation of spaying, we will then send the
TICA (The International Cat Association) papers to you to send in and register your
cat by name. The cost to you is currently $12 for non-members.

|One further item to note: Following initial contact, we will want to know some basic
information about you - your family, your home, other pets, past pet ownership,
anything you can tell us as to why you chose to purchase a Siberian kitten versus some
other breed of cat. We do not sell our kittens to just anyone who asks. We want to
make certain that those adopting our kittens are people that truly want a companion,
and not just to buy a cat because it is a 'trendy' thing to do. So if we seem nosey - it
is just in the best interest of our kittens. We, on the other hand, are trying to put as
much information about ourselves on our website so that you will know what sort of
individuals you are transacting with. We also welcome any and all questions about us,
and will answer them to the best of our ability and to your satisfaction.
Please also tell us how you found out about us!!!
