A waiting is a list of prospective persons / families that are committed to adopting a uniquely beautiful and amazing Sphynx kitten as soon as one becomes available.
How does the waiting list work?
There is a small non-refundable deposit required to be placed on our cattery's waiting list. The deposit for our waiting list is $100. Your placement on the waiting list ensures pick of litter before the kittens are placed for adoption to those who are not on the waiting list. This $100 will be applied to the total cost of the kitten you have selected.
An extensive amount of time goes into communicating with potential adoptive persons / families. This deposit ensures you have access to choosing a kitten before they are offered for adoption to the general public. It also ensures, that at a minimum, I am compensated for the time I’ve invested in communicating with you, creating and updating contracts and invoices, sending photos, etc.
Should you choose to be on the waiting list, once we have received your deposit, a contract will be sent to you via email. This contract will reflect receipt of your waiting list deposit along with your ranking on our waiting list. This contract must be filled out, signed and returned before your placement is made.
If we have names already on our waiting list, those persons will always be offered 1st pick of any new litter that arrives. They will be offered in the order the deposits were received. Kittens will only be made available to everyone else after the names on our waiting list have decided. Once your name is added to our waiting list, it remains there until you have selected your kitten. Your name can stay on the list as long as you wish and you have the option to change genders and colors of the breed you are waiting for at any time.
We will contact you once the litter is born. Selection of your kitten will be done when kittens are 4 weeks of age. Once you choose your kitten, the remaining amount of the total deposit required ($400), is due. Your total deposit of $400 will be applied to the total cost of your kitten. At this point, a revised contract and updated invoice will then be sent to you via email.
Our waiting list deposit can be placed via:
Paypal payments can be sent using firstname.lastname@example.org. (a 3% convenience fee needs to be included). - Send $103.10
Zelle is a fee-free payment option that can be used by sending to 904.624.2440.
Venmo is another fee-free payment option that can be sent using @Teri-Lawrence (Teri Scott).
What if I no longer want to be on the waiting list or if I do not like the kittens that become available?
The waiting list deposit isapplicable to the next available litter, should you not find the kitten you are searching for within the current available litter. Your name will remain on the list and your ranking will shift up as others choose their kittens.
In fairness to others, you can only pass on 4 litters before your deposit is forfeited and your name is removed from the waiting list. This ensures that someone can not hold the #1 position for an undetermined amount of time. Passing on a litter includes your non-response to the offer.
