DOWN PAYMENTS AND WAITING LIST Waiting list fee and Kitten "hold" down payments
Please review the question and answers about submitting you fee or down payment. If there is a question you have that is not covered here, feel free to contact me and ask your question directly.
1.) Q: I am not of the waiting list but I see some upcoming litters and would like first chance at a kitten from one of them, what do I need to do?
A: You would submit a $100.00 (pet) or $300 (breeder) non-refundable fee to get on the waiting list (as outlined on the "waiting list" page). When kittens are born that fit the kitten specifications that you are waiting for, we will contact you with info and pictures,etc. You will have 5 days (or a specified time fame we will give you at that time) from the time we contact you with a price to decide on a kitten or to pass and wait for the next litter. You may pass on any kitten offered as long as you'd like until you are offered one that meets your expectations. Please remember that the waiting list fee is non-refundable should you change your mind on making a purchase but is transferred towards the purchase price of the kitten.
Please note: Pocket Leopards reserves the right to with hold any kitten at any time, from offering it to those on the on the waiting list if we feel that it would benefit our program and if we want it for our program either to make a trade with or to fullfill prior obligations, or to keep. Pocket Leopards always gets first right to any kitten born here regardless of the wait list. Pocket leopards will attempt to contact people on the waiting list in the order they appear on the waiting list, but Pocket Leopards will not be held responsible should a buyer lose out on the chance to buy any particular kitten for any reason whatsoever, including but not limited to: mistake on the part of Pocket Leopards or failure of communication by Pocket Leopards or by buyer.
2.)Q: I'm on the waiting list and have decided to purchase a kitten that was offered to me, now what should I do?
A: Now you would submit a $300.00 (for pet kitten) or $500.00 (for breeder kitten) down payment to hold the specific kitten until it reaches 10 to 12 weeks old and ready to go. Once you pay your down payment on the actual kitten, the kitten will be taken off of the market and will not be offered to anyone else (unless seller changes mind about placing a particular kitten, if this happens, buyer would be automatically refunded any money paid towards the price of the kitten). Please remember that your down payment is non-refundable should you change your mind on completing the purchase.
SELLER EXCEPTION: Pocket Leopards may change our mind at any time for any reason about selling any kitten to any buyer prior to final payment. We will not be held responsible for any loss the buyer may have due to our change in mind, except a refund in the down payment.
3.) Q: What if I'm not on the waiting list but see an available kitten on the website that I want to buy?
A: You would then go to our purchase application/questionnaire page and fill it out and submit it to us. We will contact you so you can finalize the purchase. If the kitten is not old enough yet to leave you would then submit a $300.00 (or $500 for breeder) non-refundable down payment to hold the kitten until it reaches 10 to 12 weeks old. Once you put your down payment on the actual kitten, the kitten will be taken off of the market and will not be offered to anyone else. Please remember that your down payment is non-refundable should you change your mind on completing the purchase, and the Seller exception above applies to you as well.
4.) Q: I would like to get on the waiting list for a kitten to breed or I see a kitten that I want to buy as a breeder, what do I do?
A: Please first go to our "Becoming A Bengal Breeder Page" (the page is on the menu to your left). If your a new breeder, please read the entire page and then fill out the questionnaire. If your a seasoned breeder, please just fill out any parts of the questionnaire that apply to you. I will contact you so that you can be added to a separate waiting list for breeder/show quality kittens. Sometimes I offer breeding/show quality kittens as pets but they will be offered as breeders first. If you see an available kitten being offered as a breeder, please follow the same steps as above. When I contact you, you can submit your non-refundable down payment at that time so that I can hold the kitten for you until it is ready to go.
5.) Q: I see a kitten on the website that is already 12 weeks or older. Do I still have to submit a down payment to buy the kitten now?
A: No. The down payments are only to ensure that the person waiting on the list and/or holding a kitten intends to follow through on the purchase. If you see one that is ready to go, you may purchase the kitten straight out without a down payment. We will still ask you to fill out the "purchase application" first though to ensure you are a suitable home for one of our kittens/cats.
6.) Q: I would like to purchase a kitten/cat that I see on the website, can you hold the kitten for me for a few days while I send payment in?
A: Yes, most of the time we will hold the cat or kitten for 2 or 3 days without a deposit while we wait for payment or the down payment to come in. Please be aware that we do not accept checks or paypal for the final payment. We will only accept money orders or cash. We will accept those forms of payment for down payments though.
7.)Q: Will every kitten born be available to me for first pick if I get on the waiting list?
A: No, Your waiting list fee puts you on the waiting list for a specific type of kitten. If you are waiting for a pet kitten and someone else is waiting for a breeder kitten, and a breeder quality kitten is born, the person waiting for a breeder kitten will get first choice.
In addition, some we may decide to hold back for ourselves or sell only as breeders or show kittens. This does not mean that you'll never be offered a show quality or breeder quality kitten though. Many times we will sell show quality as pets (at a higher pet price). We reserve the right to hold some back to sell only as breeders/show cats. We will not hold all high quality kittens back but like to hold some back every now and then.
You also will not be offered any kitten that you are not waiting for. For instance, if you're waiting for a brown marble male, we will not give you first pick at a brown spotted unless you change your request BEFORE the kitten is born or if there is no one else waiting for that specific type of kitten.
We put you on the waiting list in order by date fees are received. So, for instance, if you and another person are both waiting for a brown spotted male, whomever got on the list first gets first right to refusal and so on till we reach the end of the list. You may have to wait for a number of litters to be born to reach you on the list but it is much better than not being on the waiting list and never getting a chance at a kitten of your choice.
8.)Q: I am interested in getting a kitten that's already on hold or getting one like that when one becomes available, but I don't want to get on the waiting list. Will you contact me and let me know if one becomes available?
A:Generally speaking, no. The reason is because it is much too hard to keep track of everyone interested in kittens. On average we get 2 -10 calls or emails per day from different interested ones. In the past we had long lists of interested people but it was too much work trying to keep track of everyone and then trying to get in touch with them. If your interested in a particular kitten and are hoping that kitten will become available, you must keep checking the website to see if it becomes available. If you see one available that you like, feel free to contact me to see how you can put a down payment on it at that time. Please understand that if you don't get on the waiting list, you might not ever get the type of kitten your looking for.
NOTE:Pocket Leopards cattery reserves the right to cancel the sale of any kitten prior to delivery, for any reason, regardless if there is a down payment on the kitten or not. If Pocket leopards Cattery cancels the sale, the down payment will automatically be refunded to the Purchaser.
