Frequently Asked Questions
What is the price of one of your kittens?
Prices vary depending on the breeding pair.
Females: $2000 - $2300
Males: $2300 - $2700
For Breeding Rights - please inquire by email.
All payments are made to PayPal.
Do you have a waitlist?
Kind of... I do not have a physical waitlist, but I will base who gets a kitten by when you originally reached out to our cattery combined with who stays in regular contact whether it be on fb, email, or instagram. ....in doing this, I will get a feel of who would be best fit to join our mitcha coontail family. This does not mean you have to write me weekly or like every post. It just means that I will not choose someone who is unfamiliar to me.
Not everyone will fit the bill, which means you may be skipped over, but our kittens mean the world to us, so I owe it to them to weed out the weird, completely insane, and/or families that make us drink twice as much just to be able to tolerate/deal with you.
Also note there is quite a list of people who have been following me for going on a year that will occupy this next litter(s). Expect a big wait if you are truly interested in one from us, but I don’t know a reputable cattery who doesn’t have a long wait. It also depends on how picky you are in regards to color and sex you want. Some may not have to wait long. Either way, one of our kittens are always worth it, imo :-)
Can we visit our kitten or your cattery?
We do not allow visitors. It is extremely stressful on my breeding cats to see strangers, and even if I had only 1 who gets stressed from strangers, she then brings that anxiety to my other cats. Also, the added foot traffic can potentially be very unhealthy for the kittens. My animals come first ....ALL the time. This is also our home where I have four active kids running around (usually doing something that gives me gray hairs), ....and not just a place of business. For their safety, I don't want to bring people over who may make their home feel awkward, unwelcoming, and/or creepy.
I will however give you regular videos and pics of your kitten.
What is your kitten process?
At 4-6 weeks, I will announce on our facebook page and on my homepage that if you are interested in a kitten ....to email me which one or ones you like in the order that you do. If it's just one, you can list just the one you'd consider. I have the right to hold 1 or some kittens back because they need to be further evaluated by me.
Then I will choose based on when someone ORIGINALLY wrote combined with who we think would be the best fit for that kitten. This is why staying in contact is important because it helps me understand what you may be looking for, and who I feel comfortable giving one of our very loved kittens to...
Then I will send you a contract for you to sign and send back to me within 48 hours ....as well as $1000 of the total cost of the kitten. $200 of that money will be a nonrefundable deposit to hold your kitten.
If paying by cash, the final payment of the remaining balance is due by/the day you pick up your new furbaby.
IF USING A COURIER/SHIPPING, that remaining balance will be due 14 days before the kitten leaves. I don't want to deal with the stress of the final payment as we prepare for their departure.
You will have 10 days from date I give you to pick up your kitten.
I reserve the right at any time to not sell you a kitten, no matter how far along you are in the process.
What about shipping?
I prefer people to pick up their kitten, but realize sometimes that doesn’t work out. I will help you find a courier. This usually costs ~ $350-700 (depending on your location). You will have 10 days to pick up your kitten from the date I give you or you will forfeit the kitten and your money (minus the non refundable fee) will be returned.
When do kittens go home?
A question everyone wants to know... "When can we get our kitten, so we can kiss them to pieces and never let them go?" I get it. Trust me...
They can go home at 12 weeks if they are gaining weight, eating well, and get the OK from our vet.
