Why kittens go home after twelve weeks? http://www.breedlist.com/faq/young.html
Kitails kittens go home at 12-13 weeks because they are altered at about 10 weeks and need time to heal
after altering is done.
* Once a kitten is altered it doesn't really matter if you choose a boy or girl. They no longer have the
gender related issues that an unaltered kitten/cat would have. They are basically all the same after
On-line Application click here A $30.00 non- refundable visiting fee is due on Kitten Care Class/testing day. Please do not worry if you don't hear anything for a week or more. It takes time to process applications.
Please do not call as this takes away from our family time when the phone rings all day.
Kitails does NOT SHIP kittens.
You must have: an approved application and be listed here, for a class, to attend a class or adopt from Kitails.
Each class can have up to 3-4 families attending. Please try to attend a class that is already being filled.
Next testing/class day is:
This class is Open:
Friday September 12, 2014 7-9pm Ashley W., Stefan S.
This class is Closed:
Saturday September 13, 2014 10:30- 12:30am
Class is: Learning about the care of your Siberian. The class is not just for those with allergies. This class is for everyone. It teaches such basic care as: nail clipping vs declawing, grooming, nutritional needs, growing patterns, litter box issues, in door vs outdoor cats, vaccinations schedules, parasite control, ect.
Testing is: spending time with the Siberians to see if you react to them. Siberians are not hypo-allergenic for everyone.
Waiting List: The choosing of kittens goes in the order that you sign up and attend a testing/class day. A kitten/cat will be marked as reserved when a family makes their choice. If it is your turn to choose, you have 3 days or until the next class day, to make your choice. If it is your turn and you don't make your choice in that time period I will allow the next family to begin making their choice. We need to be considerate of all on the list.
Breeders are on the wait list they get first pick because the best
kittens are needed in order to keep the Siberian breed at its best. I also reserve the right to put on hold a kitten that I am considering for my breeding program.
1 Breeder is now on the wait list.
I know it is very hard to wait because you can not see what the kittens are doing but, at the other end here, there is a lot of work going on to care for all of them. Please do not email with questions about litters and dates. Kitails will post information for all to read on the kitten page as information is available. This takes a lot of time to answer these types of questions. Most answers to questions can be found below under Steps to Adoption.
Kitten pics are usually posted at five weeks. Choosing of kittens is usually from the pics. Kittens at this age do not show enough personality to say much about them. We do not email individual pics to anyone.
Please do not ask to visit the kittens on any day other than the day of your appointment. This may sound harsh, but we are not a petting zoo.
Please be a responsible pet owner.
The life of a kitten is in your hands when you take one of these sweet bundles home. Many people start out with good intentions of caring for them all their life, but then along the way some feel that kittie isn't so important anymore. A cat can live for 25 yrs. or more. Being a kitten is a small part of this 25 years of life. Please take into consideration that along the way you will need to get regular vet check-ups and medical care. If you do not think you can afford to pay for this, consider getting pet insurance. It usually costs about $200.00 a year, which may be cheaper than one visit to the vet. Pet Insurance at Life's Abundance Although it is not a requirement you should seriously consider it. If you don't think you can afford pet insurance, then perhaps you should consider whether or not you will really be able to afford a cat/kitten because just like you they need to be seen by a doctor and need medical care.
Along the way you may run into problems with litter box usage, or furniture scratching, or moving, or injury, or sickness, or financial problems, and the golden years of old age, of your Siberian. Are you prepared to take care of this kitten in all situations? Please think it through and talk about it with family members. If the answer is no to any of these questions... please don't adopt this kitten. They are entirely dependent on their owners for food, shelter, and medical care. We have loved them from birth and don't want them to go to a home where someone has neglected, abused, or abandoned them to a shelter or just dumped them somewhere to fend for themselves. Adopting a Siberian should be for the ENTIRE LIFE of the kitten/cat.
*Raising animals is not cheap. You may think that the price of an animal is high but, the food, medical care, toys, ect., ect. costs a lot of money. In order to produce healthy animals it will cost more money. This is a living thing that requires care. The time to produce a kitten takes 5 months from conception to the time when the kitten will go to its new home. That is approx. 120 days of work, feeding, and medical care before your kitten can come home. At $1,050.00 that's less than $7.00 a day for 2-7 hrs of work per day. Most of this will be spent on supplies and medical care. That does not take into consideration that the mother and father need food and care all year long not, just for the 5 months it takes to get a kitten ready to go home.
