Kitten Adoption Information

How to adopt one of our kittens:

March 2021 update:

We are no longer using a waitlist. 

All of our kittens will be posted on Instagram. 

When kittens reach 8-10 weeks of age they will be evaluated as either "pet quality" or "show quality".

(please see below for details on "show" VS "pet quality" & pricing)

Once evaluated, the kittens will be ready for reservation. 

 You may then request to apply for a kitten.

 

 

Kitten Application

The application process is helpful to ensure the best possible home for our kittens

and to match the best possible kitten for you, the adopter.

Successful relationships involve the happiness of both parties.

I will evaluate each application immediately. 

When approved to adopt one of our kittens you will receive email confirmation,

with an invite to reserve a kitten (see reservations below).

Reservations

If approved for one of our kittens a $500 deposit will be required to make a reservation.

All deposits are non-refundable, and non- transferable to other kittens

After the deposit is received & reservation is made, an adoption contract will be emailed to you for signature. 

The contract includes the 2 year health guarantee as well as points of protection for the kitten, purchaser, and seller.

(During the application process the contract will be discussed in further detail.) 

The remaining balance of your kitten(s) will be due no later than 14 days before pick up,

unless you arrive to pick up kitten(s) in person and are bringing cash. 

 

Awaiting Your Kitten

Congratulations!!!

You are about to become the proud owner of an amazing MoonSeed kitten!!

This is a very exciting time for all of us. 

There will be photos & updates of your kitten(s) posted weekly on Instagram.

I look forward to sending you personal videos of your growing baby!

 

After the reservation for your kitten is made, I will send you information to help you prepare:

(Supply list, kitten proofing strategies, stress-free transition techniques, etc)

Each kitten's welcome package is tailored to the unique needs of each adopter:

multi-cat households, homes with children, other pets etc..

It is important that your home is prepared, and that you have all your supplies before your tumble of fluff arrives!

Check out our Supplies Page  to order supplies in advance of kitten's arrival. I have also added

recommended feline foods, products, and supplies for cats of all life stages.

If you do not yet have an established veterinarian,

now is the time to find one, and make your kitten's fist wellness exam. 

Now a days during the COVID Pandemic, the veterinary offices are booking weeks out in advance!

You have 72 hours upon receiving your kitten to have them examined by a licensed DVM (VMD in some states),

or else the health guarantee for your kitten will be void.

Your kitten will go home no younger than 13 weeks old.

All kittens will be spayed or neutered 

before leaving the cattery.

Transportation and Shipping

I prefer to have kittens picked up by their new owners -VS- shipping by airline.

This minimizes stress upon the kitten & maximizes their chance for a healthy transition.

Stress = dis-ease in felines, which can manifest in several unwanted ways.

Pick up can work a couple of ways:

If driving: 

You may drive to my home in Athens, Ohio for pick up.

This invitation is for kitten owners at pick up only.

I do not offer visiting hours to my cattery. This is due to 2 reasons:

1. COVID

2. risk to my cats/kittens. 

I appreciate your understanding on this matter,

and will maintain transparency about my cattery and our cats/kittens

by posting daily videos and photos on Instagram.

If not local: 

You may fly into Ohio to pick up your kitten or you may hire a flight nanny.

I can transport kittens to the following airports for pick up:

Columbus International Airport (CMH)

Rickenbacker International Airport (LCK)

This is a 3 hour drive for me round trip from Athens to Columbus & a transport fee will be applied. 

*Those are the only airports that I can travel to* 

Transportation via flight nanny will be arranged by owner & company.

Further details about flying home with your kitten will be discussed well in advance of pick up.
