Frequently Asked Questions
WHEN CAN I GET A KITTEN?
Our kittens are ready to join their new families around 14-15 weeks of age. At that age they will have been weaned, litter box trained, vaccinated, spayed/neutered, and fully healed from surgery. To ensure you can bring your new companion home in time for Easter or Christmas, we recommend joining the waitlist without delay. Additionally, rarely we may offer a fast pass option for those who wish to expedite the purchasing process (details below).
PRIORITY OF CHOICE
There is NO Waitlist for two kittens currently available! For future litters, there will be a waitlist. The priority to choose your desired kitten goes by a first come, first serve basis determined by when the $100 deposit is received. You should join the waitlist as soon as you decide you need one of our unique, hypoallergenic, purebred, Neva Masquerade, Blue Lynx Point, Siberian kitten with blue eyes and mostly white coloring.
HOW MUCH WILL A KITTEN COST?
These Siberian kittens are Tica.org registered with proof of being purebred to maintain the vital hypoallergenic qualities, breed standards, friendly personalities, and beauty which is why they are so very special.
The cost of each kitten may vary depending on many factors but can vary between $2,500-$4,500. Your total cost will be locked in when you return the signed "Kitten Purchase Agreement".
The total will include the following required early veterinarian care:
Veterinarian physical exams at each visit and any medical care for issues that arise while under our care
Raised as part of our family, with round the clock, in home care
FVRCP x 2-3 doses (needs another in 2 weeks or 1 year) - This depends on your kittens exact age at final vet appt. If the kitten is old enough, we will complete
Rabies Vaccine (needs another in 1 year)
Recovery care, post op medication, and close monitoring after surgery for ten days
or longer as needed.
Then your kitten is ready to go home with you and be part of your family!
Once your kitten is with their new family, the new owner needs to take the kitten to your chosen vet within one week of bringing your kitten home in order to obtain any booster vaccines needed, and to verify that the kitten is in good health. The next routine vaccines will be due in 1 year.
All cost estimates are subject to change and without notice prior to entering into a signed, written "Kitten Purchase Agreement" with Magic Siberians.
Our price points have been established based on numerous factors including the rarity of our cat breed, rare coloration, superior genetic make up, expenses to import breeding cats, increased costs for breeding rights, top notch daily food and personal care, pet health insurance, wellness care, routine and emergency veterinary care (for laboring mother and/or newborns), as well as the current market prices for all factors which currently is elevated due to the inflation. Our vet costs, food, litter, etc. have all gone up, and we don't even account for the numerous hours dedicated by our staff to raise these kittens for four months including daily feeding, litter box training (and the inevitable numerous accident clean ups), cleaning litter boxes, socialization, additional veterinary care, and time spent socializing, just comforting and playing with the kittens because we love them all.
You are able to space out the payments on a schedule or save up the funds.
Below are the minimum requirements on the kitten payment timetable.
$100 Initial Deposit with acceptance to the waitlist upon application.
This is non-refundable, and holds your place on the waitlist,
denying others the priority.
$1,000 Kitten Reservation Installment
If on the waitlist, after the kittens are born, around 8 weeks of age, the top waitlisted families will be sent photos and a personality description of each kitten.
This payment is due once you choose the kitten you would like to reserve or
at least 6 weeks prior to pick up if the process happens quickly as with a
rapid sale or fast pass.
$1,000 Third Installment is due at least 3 weeks prior to the agreed upon pick up date and is applied toward the required spay/neuter and early veterinarian care.
Remainder - Final payment is due when your kitten is 14 weeks old and is variable
depending on the total price. The remainder is due in full at least 48 hours prior to pick up, drop off, or other transport of the kitten from our cattery.
Please keep the following in mind while considering the financial aspects of your investment:
The only form of payment we accept is Zelle which often has low daily limits (depending on your bank and settings). Please send payments in advance. No kitten will be released without full payment at least 48 hours prior to the agreed upon pick up time.
Shipping (third party) would incur additional costs.
You may pick up in McKinney, Texas 75071 for free of course.
IS THERE A HEALTH GUARANTEE?
Yes, your kitten comes with a 1-year limited health guarantee in the rare event that a genetically related health problem arises. Both veterinarian documentation of the genetic disorder, verification of proper continued veterinarian care, and in the (very unlikely) case of death a necropsy/autopsy report will be required from a licensed veterinarian.
Thankfully, this has never happened, but if it did our resolution would be to offer a replacement kitten. No refunds will be granted.
Communicable viruses, diseases, other illnesses, injuries, or any problems from a lack of veterinarian care do not apply after the kitten leaves our cattery since those are out of our control. For these reasons we strongly recommend a wellness plan for at-least the first year and maintaining pet health insurance like Trupanion, Lemonade, or Fetch to begin on the day the kitten is in your possession or that of your courier.
WHERE IS MY KITTEN LOCATED?
We are located about 45 min north of Dallas, Texas. If you live or can meet in the Dallas area, we offer free delivery up to 15 miles from McKinney, Texas, zip code 75071 (including a local airport with valid flight documentation) which can save you between $500-$700 in courier services. You would also have the option to drive to the area to pick up your kitten.
HOW CAN I TELL IF I'M ALLERGIC TO SIBERIAN CATS?
Do you or a family member have cat allergies or asthma? If so, it is recommended to first order an Allergy Test which consist of a fur sample and detailed instructions to test your allergies at home. The Allergy Test is $50 (payable through Zelle using our phone number (469)584-1894 as the recipient).
Refunds or returns cannot be granted if allergies are discovered after purchasing a kitten. Please do your due diligence to figure this out before hand. The fur sample may take 1-2 weeks to arrive because sometimes our cats shed a lot, and other seasons they shed much less. Once your order is placed we start working on building it to get it mailed asap.
HOW CAN I START THE PROCESS?
Email us to request the application .pdf form. The application is nothing scary. It will just help us know your needs and preferences. When you've completed the application, return it and pay the $500 non-refundable deposit and signed "Kitten Purchase Agreement". Your name will be placed on the waitlist for the next litter with available slots. If you are interested in getting your kitten/s asap please ask if there are any fast pass slots available. Sometimes they come up if someone on the waitlist drops off for some reason, like being suddenly deployed overseas or a family emergency.
HOW CAN I SUBMIT PAYMENTS?
In order to actually get on the waitlist, please return the application with the initial deposit of $500 (payable through Zelle using our phone number (469)584-1894 as the recipient). After your application is approved, confirmation of your deposit, and your signed "Kitten Purchase Agreement" are all received, your name will be placed on the waitlist in the order of the date all three above requirements are completed and will be based on a first come, first serve basis or fast pass plan purchased.
CAN I PICK WHICH KITTEN I WANT?
Yes! Since there is no waitlist at the moment you can reserve whichever available kittens you want. Upon reserving a specific kitten there is a $1000 (per kitten) non-refundable installment payment due. After these last two, currently available kittens are gone, the waitlist will resume and "pick of the litter" will proceed on a first come first serve basis as outlined above.
ARE THEIR OTHER THINGS I SHOULD KNOW ABOUT?
When the waitlist returns: Please note a litter of kittens can have 1-8 babies and being on the waitlist doesn’t guarantee you will get a kitten at the next “available” litter. If you are number 5 on the waitlist but the litter only has 4 kittens, you will be first in line for the following litter. You may also pass for up to two litters and choose a kitten from the following litter. We do not guarantee our best estimates of when you will get a kitten since there are so many natural factors beyond our control such as female heat cycles, survival rate of the babies born, how many litters the queen has had in a given 12 month period, and health/death of the breeding queens or studs. Our queens are our pride and joy! We must give them breaks in breeding to replenish their bodies, mind, and spirits to be ready to care for another litter. We do this because we are passionate about bringing hypoallergenic cats to people that otherwise can't have a pet, and we love the breed, babies, and adult cats. Please be patient in waiting on the waitlist.
Waiting until 14-15 weeks is what responsible breeders do. Releasing a kitten prior to 14 weeks is too early and risks behavioral problems (peeing/marking repeatedly outside the litter box, scratching, biting, improper play, anxiety, excessive stress responses, and other developmental delays) down the line due to improper socialization with their mother, litter mates, and humans in their home of origin at such an early, impressionable age. Also, responsible breeders do not allow kittens to leave the cattery without being spay/ neutered. This is required to preserve the purity of the breed and not contribute to the over population of cats endemic in the US.
If you or a loved one are not allergic to cats we encourage you to explore all adoption options in your area before buying a purebred kitten. We specifically breed these kittens to provide an option for allergic/asthmatic people to finally be able to have a pet in their lives.
If you are so fortunate to not be afflicted, please consider adopting from your local shelter. Of course we will work with any family wanting a Siberian, but it's best to try adopting first if you don't have allergies since there are many lovely cats and kittens in the shelters.
