Joy of Sphynx has two options to wait for a kitten if none are currently available:
The Email Notification List and the Paid Reservation List
Email Notification List – Once a litter is born in the cattery, a mass email goes out to prospective clients with pictures showing which kittens I have available. Reservations are taken on a first come, first serve basis. This email goes out once the kittens are about 2 weeks old AND AFTER the clients on the reservation list have made their selection. Sometimes I am unable to get to the waiting list clients because they have all been reserved prior to birth.
Paid Reservation List– Some clients elect to make a deposit prior to kittens arriving to ensure their place on the reservation list and guarantee their ability to make a selection. Clients are placed on the main list in the order that their $100 deposit and signed contract are received. (The deposit does count toward the overall purchase price of the kitten.) They are offered a kitten from the next litter available in the order they fall on the list and have the option to select a kitten or pass and wait for the next litter. Contracts written for the paid reservation list are good for one year. Please understand that the $100 deposit is non-refundable unless otherwise stated in writing.
There is one main list for Joy of Sphynx kittens. Clients may request to purchase a kitten from a certain Queen but ultimately will be offered kittens from each litter born and given the option to select a kitten or pass and wait for the next litter. Once kitten selection is made (at approximately 4 weeks of age for the kitten, so that I can also notify the Email Notification List clients in a timely manner), the remaining $300 deposit will need to be paid within 7 business days. Total deposit due: $400
I am always happy to send potential clients a sample contract for review.
If you would like to be added to the Email Notification List, please send me an email on the contact page. Make sure you specify if you are looking for a male or a female and if you are interested in a specific color.
Please do not ask to reserve a kitten without a deposit. Thank you for your understanding!
