Russian Siberian Cats of Texas  
Conditions for Sale Documenet

Updat Jan, 2020

General information and Conditions for the Sale
of a Munchranch kitten or cat.

I have a couple of conditions for sale but they are reasonable and you do not have to sign your life away to own one of these Siberian kittens.

My first condition is that you get it altered before 6 months old for males and 8 months old for females.
You can do that at your vet or I can do that at my vet.
I can get a female spayed for $250 extra.
A male neuter is $150 extra.
Microchipping is $65 extra.
To alter the males will need to be heavy enough and have dropped to do the easy surgery.  They can even leave the next day.
A female takes a few days to be able to leave. She has to be a min. of 4 pounds. Sometimes, that is around 16 weeks instead of 12 depending on her size.
The boys can be done between 12-14 weeks depending on their weight as well.

The second request is that you keep the kitten on the same food for a minimum of 12 months after delivery.
This food must be ordered from the link at the bottom all of my emails, or the link at the bottom of this document, or from the link on my website salepage.
This high quality food is from Life’s Abundance, a nutrition food company in Florida. They manufacture cat and dog food, as well as health products for humans. I think you will be impressed with the quality and lack of hype. It is NOT sold in stores, so you get direct pricing from the company. It is an online order only.
By agreeing to do this and setting up the autoship, you qualify for a $50 discount.
The health guarantee is for a year, but if you choose to keep the kitten on the same food from Life's Abundance for the next 5 years, that guarantee can be extended to up to 5 years.  That is for death due to most anything other than kidney failure or neglect and accidents.

That is pretty cheap insurance considering they have to eat anyway and this food is a holistic, healthy food made in Florida, not overseas.
The food is delivered to your door on an autoship bases and you will need to create an autoship account with Life’s Abundance. They also give a discount for having an autoship account.  The food will need to be there before kitty arrives, or have been ordered.
This is unless you are picking it up here and have not really had time for that to happen. In that case I will give you enough dry food and a few cans of canned food to last a few says.
         If you pick up the kitten on a visit, you will have to set up the account with Lifes Abundance as soon as you get home so it will be there in 3 days. Not ordering the food and creating the autoship account will void the warranty and forfeit the $50 discount. (Which you probably have already been given credit for, if you agreed that you would do that.)
My suggestion it to start with the 'Starter Pack'.
They make grain free or normal.  I have used both and the Grain Free is popular.
That's about $65 before tax and shipping, and should last about a month.
 Set up your account as an autoship account and make it every 4 weeks. Then, as the need changes, you can get larger quantities, or extend or shorten the time between deliveries.
You can discontinue the starter pack and just order the canned and dry food, eliminating the extras that come in the starter pack.
 But in order to get your $50 discount, you will need to agree to set up the autoship account, realizing that you can edit it at any time and change the frequency of deliveries as well as the amount or size of the order.
If you choose to stop getting the starter pack and all the other goodies that come with that package, it is important to keep getting the canned food as well as the dry food.
Or you can choose to order only the canned food and still be ok with  your warranty. Just ordering dry food will void your health guarantee.
Research has shown that cats which have died sooner than the average, have often died of kidney problems.  This is often due to them being fed only dry for their entire life. They are obligate carnivores and need meat in the diet in order to have the best health.
Again, you have the option of getting only canned food, but not only dry food.
Even though dry food is made as nutritious as it can be made, dry food is made for human convenience. The cats need meat in the diet in order to be in their best health. 
Kidney failure is not covered in your warranty, so you want to be sure to keep it as healthy as possible and give it the right variety of foods. There are just too many factors beyond my control which may cause kidney failure, so it is not a covered illness. My adults have all been DNA tested for PKD-1, a kidney disease, and they are all negative. So none of the kittens will get that type of genetic kidney disease.
 If you are interested in giving them supplements for the first 12 months, you can get another $50 discount for agreeing to order at least 4 containers in the next 12 months from NuVet.
That link is also below this document as well as in my emails and on the website.
I put the Nu Vet powdered supplements on every meat meal.
For me, that is twice a day.
The first 12 months of their life is the most important as far as growth, nutrition, development and socialization.
My advice is to give them the best you can and it will pay off in the long run.
One container of the supplements will last 3 months, and the cost is usually less than the cost of just 1 office visit from your vet.

If you are good with these two conditions of sale, we can proceed and you can come visit to test for allergies, or you can have the kitten shipped, or deliver by me. Or we can meet somewhere in-between. 
Even without the personal allergy test, you will still get a 7 day money back guarantee should you or a family member not be able to tolerate that particular kitten or cat. I want your family as well as the kitten to be happy.

Those fees and places that I have already established as meeting places are on my sale page near the end. Of course you can come here for free.

Let me know if you have any more questions and if you are agreeable to my two conditions. I keep all our emails, so  I will have copies of our correspondence. It is not necessary to sign anything to get a kitten from me, other than the USDA form showing that you are the new owner and have read this document.

To help make a kitten’s adjustment time be shorter I have a few suggestions for those who have never had a kitten before.

 I would suggest that you keep it in a bathroom or utility room (with the litter box and food/water) for a day or so , or as long as it takes to not be trying to hide every time someone comes in. Once the kitten comes to you and wants attention, then you can take it out and put it in a room for the next step of adjustment. A bedroom is great but be aware of all the hiding places it will find if it has not become adjusted and feel safe.
Go into the temporary kitty room several times a day and pet the kitten.  Pick him/her up and hold and pet it. The more interaction with different people, the faster it will figure out that you are good and wonderful and not something to be afraid of.
Do not hold it upside down like a baby doll. They do not like that until they are fully comfortable with you and they will do it on their own once that time comes.
 Often people, especially kids want to hold it like a doll. That is a very scary position for a kitten.
 It’s unnatural and it feels like they are something’s prey, so they do not like that.
By going into the room that the kitten is staying and doing it often,  and giving it affection and attention is the fastest way for it to know you are his new family and not a threat.
 It may cry the first night and be annoying, but it’s not as bad as a puppy.  It may not eat or poop the first day, so don’t be alarmed.  I have never had one die from self-starvation.
Doing this adjustment phase correctly will last a lifetime.
Doing it incorrectly will also last a lifetime.
A traumatized kitten will have a sad life and the family who owns it will miss a wonderful opportunity for a loving and therapeutic pet.

Also, you have a week to take it to the vet for a kitty check. Take a stool sample as well. They need to be checked for parasites.
As far as I know, they are clear of that, but if the vet finds any, I will pay for the meds, but not the visit.

 You do not need to do any testing for things such as Leukemia because all my adults have already been tested and I have a leukemia free cattery. That is an unnecessary expense that’s not necessary unless you want to do it.
Besides, if your kitten were to die of that, you get another one, or refund anyway.
I have never had to replace a kitten that died of Leukemia.  
But people have been scared when they went ahead and did the test that I told them not to do, and they did anyway, and they were very concerned when it came back positive. 
But it was a false positive and after several months of waiting and retesting, they found out that it actually never had leukemia.  
Those test sometimes have false positives and that just unnecessarily scares the owners.  But that is up to you if you want that or not.
A positive test may not necessarily indicate a sick kitten, so your kitten will not be replaced until it has been confirmed that it actually has Leukemia, or has died. That may take up to 6 months.

The kitten will have had at least  1 or 2 sets of kitten shots and you will need to give #3 at 16 weeks, and the rabies shot when it is old enough, if I have not already done that. I usually give the rabies vaccine when it is altered or before it is shipped, if it is old enough (4 months)

I am looking forward to having one of my kittens share their life with you and your family. 
 If you have any more questions feel free to call or email.
We will keep in touch.
