ADOPTION TERMS & CONDITIONS
Please read everything carefully prior to inquiring about our kittens.
RIGHT OF REFUSAL:
We reserve the right to refuse a sale to any person, for any reason, without explanation.
Please understand that Altyn Cattery are NOT your typical online breeder that will sell to anyone with the financial ability to buy a kitten. We do not grant adoption privilege to just anyone. We do require a thorough interview to make sure you can provide a suitable home for our little ones and reserve the right to refuse sale of any kitten pictured on our website if we feel your home is not suitable. Our main goal and responsibility is to find a loving, safe and caring home for every kitten we place for adoption and as such reserve the right to be selective in that search.
If we feel there will be a lack of proper care with the new potential owner, we have the right to refuse the adoption at any given time during the adoption process. Any and all deposits or adoption fees will be return in full if we refuse the adoption.
We only place our kittens into the hands of the best pre-approved homes.
A non-refundable deposit of 30% of the cost of kitten is required to reserve a kitten prior to placement.
Deposit Disclosure: We are aware that circumstances change and it is not always possible to take possession of a cat or kitten as originally planned. Deposits will be considered payment for boarding, grooming and lost opportunities for placement if the buyer changes their mind for any reason. So please be sure before sending deposit.
If a deposit has been sent by mail while another adopter is able to pay immediately using any immediate-payment methods (such as PayPal) for the same cat or kitten, we will accept payment from the adopter who's entire payment reaches us first, and we will refund the deposit upon receiving it.
They say "photos are worth a thousand words" but there is no substitute for seeing our beautiful and playful kittens "live" in their home environment! So we encourage anyone who can make the trip to come see the kitten and meet it's parents and let "It" choose you! That said, since we maintain a very sanitary and clean environment to protect all our cats, we do not allow anyone to come to "just look around". We should know that you are a serious adopter for one of our kittens and that your intentions are to buy/reserve (leave a deposit) for a kitten when you come to our home.
Go to our Contact Us page for an idea of where we are located.
Kittens are normally placed at 9-12 weeks of age and are fully inoculated (shots record provided along with health guaranty and de-worming record). On occasion we will place a kitten in a new home earlier than 12-weeks if we feel the kitten is advanced in his development and there is a really good reason why the new home can't wait the full 12 weeks for placement. 12 weeks is the veterinarian recommended time a kitten needs to be with it's mother and nursed in order to develop a strong enough immune system before leaving to a new home environment. This is for the kitten's safety and well being which is our ONLY concern as to when we let them go.
We ask that everyone prior to contacting us about adopting a kitten, read our page "About FIP" and educate yourself prior to adopting any pure breed animal.
We are a “Closed” cattery meaning we do not allow or introduce any new cats into our controlled environment until they have been thoroughly tested (by us) and found to be Negative for; feline leukemia (FIV), FeLV & PKD.
100% HEALTH GUARANTEE:
All Kittens are delivered with a Health Guarantee: It is the Responsibility of my “ALTYN “cattery to deliver a clean, healthy, socialized kitten free of; disease, Life-threatening defects, and internal or external parasites upon delivery.
Guaranteed Against Genetic Disease: If kitten has a life threatening illness due to genetics, up to ONE YEAR, we will replace the kitten with one of equal value as soon as one is available or refund 100% the adoption fee. Our vet must confirm the diagnosis.
Shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer.
Breeding Rights are available on a very limited and select basis. We retain the right to refuse breeding rights to anyone, for any reason, without explanation.
A kitten purchased as a family pet will be entered as such individual records, and with CFA as well. ALL kittens purchased as pet have to be neutered/spayed within time period specified in Kitten contact.
While we prefer not to ship our little ones via the airlines we will make exceptions on a case by case basis if there is no other means. Shipping costs is an additional flat fee of$350.00 through Delta Airlines PetSafe. Terminal Pick-up Fees (for Internationalshipping) and Kennel Service (if required) are additional costs.
Adult Cats and Kittens over 3 months of age shipping = $400.00
All the airlines and Pet Cargo services have restrictions on shipping "Snub-Nosed" animals (Exotics & Persians) such as: maximum temperature of no more than 85 degrees F during the entire travel time as well as - specific travel cage size and construction, a clean Health Certificate by a Licensed Vet, no sedatives administered prior to flying, and providing proper food and water. Although these are the Pet Cargo services restrictions on travel for Snub-Nosed animals, our OWN self-imposed restrictions are even more stringent. We will not ship a kitten during certain months of the year and we will not ship a kitten if the TOTAL travel time exceeds 10-hours. This pretty much eliminates international shipping. We also try to schedule the departing flight at the earliest time possible in the AM when temperatures are at their lowest in the summer time. We also won't ship if there is not a direct flight without connections. You can't imagine the stress a little kitten goes through in a cage sitting inside a plane especially since all he's known his entire life to that point is the nice., warm, comfortable environment of our home and it's mother! Major shock and stress.
ABOUT ALTYN CATTERY:
We are a small, "Cage less" cattery which means our kittens and cats live with us and are part of our family. We hand raise them from the day they are born and shower them with enormous amounts of love and attention. My kittens are known for their sweet personalities and playful nature and are very sociable kittens.
We are a "Closed" cattery meaning all our cats have tested NEGATIVE for FIV, FeLV & PKD. We do not introduce a new cat into our cattery until it has been tested and found negative for the above deceases.
