FAQs

Q?

What is the breeder currently feeding the kitten?

A.

We send you home with all the information you need for food, care the first 2 weeks, toys, and litter needs.  We require you to give NuVet supplements for at least the first year of life.   They are the only USDA approved pet vitamin and they guarantee better immunity for your cat.

Q?

What is the family history?

A.

We try to track our lineage as best as we can, and we always welcome information on Coonplay babies.  But it is as much the responsibility of our adoption homes to choose to keep us updated.  We have Coonplay Maine Coons that have lived as long as 18 + years.  Though there is no guarantees your kitty will live that long, we strive to do everything we can to hope you will also see this many wonderful years with your beloved fur baby.

Q?

Limited registration?

A.

All Coonplay adoptions come with a signed contract.  Pet only adoptions are required to spay/neuter at your own cost no later than 7 months of age by signed contract agreement.  Then send proof to us as soon as spay/neuter is completed.  We only provide registration paperwork for Show and Breeder Rights adoptions.

Q?

What is their guarantee?

A.

The kitten is to be seen by a Certified Veterinarian within Seventy Two (72) hours of pick-up from the cattery or upon the time of shipment, at the Buyer/Owner’s expense. (Sunday’s and Holiday’s excluded from this time period).  If you have other pets, Breeder requires you place the new arrival in isolation for a minimum of two weeks.  Buyer/Owner’s agrees to take overall measures to reduce stress during the integration period, by having patience at this special adjustment time.  Kitten is to be given a lot of attention to be able to bond with their new owners.  The 72 hour time period begins at the point that the cat/kitten leaves the possession of the Breeder, whether it is at the cattery or at some point of shipping.  If shipped, the kitten/cat, comes to you with a veterinarian’s health certificate, and all kittens/cats come with a record of vaccinations and de-worming.  Please provide a copy of this to your veterinarian so that follow up booster vaccinations can be scheduled.  If any concern with the kitten/cat is found by the veterinarian within this 72 hour time period, the Breeder must be allowed to speak directly to Buyer/Owner’s veterinarian, within the three days for the Breeder’s guarantee to apply.  If concern is of a treatable nature, The Buyer/Owner then has the choice to…

a. Return the kitten to the breeder, at the Buyer/Owner’s expense, for the Breeder to complete treatment at the Breeders cost until the kitten is well.

b. The Buyer/Owner can choose to treat the kitten themselves at their own expense.

Failure to make this report within this time frame will void this warranty.  The Health Guarantee ends after the 72 hour time and any care concern of the kitten is completely the Buyer/Owner’s responsibility after this time period ends. 

If the cat/kitten is found to be in unsound health by a licensed veterinarian within the 72 hours, the cat/kitten MUST be returned to Breeder, and Buyer/Owner may request a replacement with another cat/kitten of equal value.  “Unsound health” shall be defined as any condition that is “life threatening” or “incurable “and shall not include curable conditions of infections such as colds, virus, bacterial  infections, skin rashes, fungus, or parasites.  Said replacement will be made as soon as a suitable replacement becomes available.  A medical report signed by the examining licensed veterinarian must be provided to the Breeder prior to a replacement being made.  There shall be no replacement unless under the Health Guarantee (with the 72-hour period only except as stated below).  The Breeder will not replace any cat or kitten that has not received adequate and appropriate care from its new owner.  It is the responsibility of the Buyer/Owner to provide immediate veterinary care (at the Buyer/Owner’s own expense) to any cat/kitten showing signs of illness or distress and failure to do so will render any guarantee null and void.  Once a replacement cat/kitten has been offered to the Buyer/Owner, and the Buyer/Owner declines to accept the cat/kitten, or if the Buyer/Owner chooses to select a kitten from another cattery/party, and does not want a replacement kitten from the Breeder, then this contract is considered fulfilled and the Buyer/Owner surrenders all rights to a claim for another cat/kitten.  No money will be refunded under any circumstances other than what is specified in signed contract.    There are no further Guarantees.

Q?

What visits has the kittens had with the veterinarian?

A.

Kittens and cats will always see our Veterinarian for a health check before we will allow them to come home with you.

Q?

Have any of the kittens in the litter been sick?

A.

Though kittens and cats do get sick from time to time,  because we are a closed cattery, we have minimized the number of times any of our cats or kittens have gotten sick.  We rarely have sick kittens due to our policy.

Q?

Have the kittens been dewormed?

A.

Absolutely!  We give all litters a preventive dewormer before they come home.

Q?

What vaccines has the kitten had?

A.

Your kitten will come home with a minimum of it's first vaccination completed.  Usually they are due for their 2nd when you pick up, so your vet can give it to them with in the 72 hour vet check window after pick up, and get them on a schedule with their office.

Q?

How long is your wait list?

A.

We never take more deposits than we hope to be able to fill in the next 2-6 months. Occasionally we have had a few families wait a little longer, but it is not common and usually involves specific details on color, gender, or poly feet of the kitten desired.

Q?

How are your kittens socialized?

A.

We are a large family with kids, cats and dogs and kittens are right along in the mix. They are very well socialized! Normally we hear our kittens enter your home and don't hesitate for a second to accept it as theirs. We do provide full instructions on how to help your new fur baby feel safe and secure in their new environment.

Q?

Can we come meet the cats?

A.

Yes and no. We do not have visitors in our home, for safety as well as the health of our cats. However, you will get to meet your kitten before final payment is made.

Q?
