Kitten Adoption Information

How to adopt one of our kittens:

Thank you for your interest in adopting on of my kittens. 

During this process it is my foremost desire to align the right kitten with the right owner. 

I am home with the kittens all day everyday from the time they are born till

they are 13 weeks of age. So, I can get a good feel for each one's purrsonality.

Please read through the following information on this page.

I value your time & hope that this may answer any preliminary questions you may have.

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. 

To qualify for a kitten reservation, you must first complete the adoption process.

Kitten ApplicationProcess

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

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

Successful relationships involve the happiness of both parties.

To start this process please fill out the following inquiry form, after you have read all the information 

on this page. This form is only for serious adopters, meaning those who are ready to place deposits after their interview.

Please do not fill out a form in order to contact me with questions. 

Please do not schedule an interview if you are breeder shopping.

The interviews are only intended for those who intend to adopt. It is how we get to know one another.

The interviews tend to take about 45 minutes to an hour and are best done on zoom but can also be done on the phone. 

Once I receive this form, I will contact you to complete the interview. 

Go to adoption form >

Reservations

If approved to adopt, you will then need to place a $500 deposit fee per kitten within

48 hours after the interview. If the deposit is not placed within that time frame then the

opportunity will be offered to someone else.

Please note that all deposits are non-refundable

After the deposit is received, a sales agreement will be emailed to you for signature. 

The agreement will detail the adoption process and what is expected from both
"buyer" and "seller". One deposit placed secures your interest in one kitten.

The $500 deposit will be applied to the total purchase price.

Deposits can be placed before a litter is born or once a litter is born.

Some adopters will request to place a deposit in advance of a breeding as well. 

The kitten inquiry form will have up to date information on depost taking status. 

Kittens will be evaluated for "show" or "pet quality" at 8-10 weeks. 

Owners will not pick their kitten!

It is not possible for me to give adopters the ability to pick their kitten based off looks.

UNLESS you wish to show your kitten, I will pick each kitten for each family based off 

of personality. This is very important. You Ragdoll cat will be with you for a very

long time, and it is imperative that the right kitten be placed into the right home.

It is also my responsibility as a breeder and the primary steward of these

cats and kittens to align them in a home where they will thrive.

Please be completely sure you are comfortable with this before you begin 

the adoption process because deposits are not refundable.

I volunteered as an adoption coordinator for a feline rescue for a few years. I truly feel from that

experience that placing the right kitten into the right home must be done this way.

If you have preferences such as "bicolor" or "seal" VS "blue" or "no lynx" than be sure to indicate

that on the kitten inquiry form as well as during our interview. My goal is to align the ideal kitten to your home 

situation while also honoring your preferences on gender, color, and pattern to the best of my ability. 

Those who have placed deposits will get to watch kittens as they grow.

I post daily updates of these tumble fluffs on my Instagram  stories!

I enjoying sharing kitten milestones there, funny antics, home-made cat food recipes,

and also information on feline health, behavior, and husbandry.

Once kittens reach the appropriate age, and after kitten quality has been ascertained, those 

who have placed deposits will be contacted. Owners will then be selected for individual kittens.

We will have another get together chat at that time to go over the next steps to prepare

for the arrival of your kitten! 

The remaining balance for your kitten(s) must be paid off in full by the time your

kitten reaches 11 weeks of age. At that time we will both sign an adoption contract.

deposits can be processed through either Venmo or Zelle. 

Awaiting Your Kitten

Congratulations to our adopting families!

The last few weeks before "gotcha day" is a very exciting time!

Remember that photos & updates of all of our kittens posted weekly on Instagram

After your kitten turns 11 weeks old, and contracts/fees are settled, I will

send you an informational PDF detailing the following so that you may prepare for

the arrival of your kitten:

  • A kitten supply list ( food, toys, litter, everything)

  • Kitten home proofing strategies

  • Stress-free transition techniques

  • A reminder to schedule your required veterinary exam

  • Kitten Care 101 PDF

I am currently working on a Supplies Page  to help you order supplies in advance of kitten's arrival.

I will also add recommended feline foods, products, and supplies for cats of all life stages.

If you do not yet have an established veterinarian, I recommend finding one well before your kitten 

comes home.  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.

I am available for questions, concerns, and support during the adoption process

and after!

 kittens will go home no younger than 13 weeks old.

All kittens will be spayed or neutered 

before leaving the cattery.

Transportation and Shipping

I will not ship kittens or cats.

I prefer to have kittens & cats picked up by their new owners.

This minimizes stress upon the kitten/cat & 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.

At this time I am giving preference to those who are able to come to my home for pick up.

If not driving: 

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.

I am a full time BSN student - so, you will need to pick up your kitten from the airport by my availability.
