Please review the question and answers about submitting your waiting list 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 see some upcoming litters and would like first chance at a kitten from one of them, what do I need to do?
A: You may get on our waiting list. To get on the waiting list, you must first fill out our buyer application on this website by clicking here: BUYER APPLICATION. After you are approved, you can submit a $300 deposit to get on the waiting list. For more info on the waiting list, please read the info below.
2.) Q: I see an available kitten on the website that I want to buy, what do I do? A: You would then go to our purchase applicationand 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 $500.00 non-refundable down payment to hold the kitten until it reaches around 12 weeks old (or until the date Breeder gives you as take home date). 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. We reserve the right to cancel any sale at any time before the kitten leaves Pocket Leopards cattery. If for any reason we change our mind, we will refund all deposits/down payments paid.
3.) Q: I see a kitten that I want to buy as a breeder, what do I do?
A: We no longer sell breeding cats to anyone, not even registered breeders.
4.) 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.
5.) 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 down payment while we wait for payment or the 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, cash, or zelle. Please note that we no longer accept paypal or its related companies like Venmo. Paypal does not allow the sales of live animals, therefore the seller is not protected by buyer chargebacks after the buyer has taken kitten home,
6.)Q: I am interested in getting a kitten that's already on hold or getting one like that when one becomes available. 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. 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 or our facebook fan page or get on the waiting list for a similar kitten.
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.
WAITING LIST We currently have the waiting list on hold and are not accepting new applications for waiting list. The waiting list service fee is $300 and is applied towards the purchase price of the kitten. If after 6 months we have not offered you the color, pattern and sex of kitten you are waiting for, we will refund the waiting list fee at your request, or you may stay on the list. The waiting list fee secures your place for a kitten fitting your description from the kittens I make available (I may not make all of them available to you). I may hold back any kitten for an unspecified amount of time in order to evaluate kittens. Once I make a kitten available to you, you must answer to either accept or decline my offer of a kitten within a designated time frame, or I will move on to the next person on the list. (usually 3 days) To get on the waiting list, you must first fill out the buyer questionnaire on our website, and be approved to purchase a kitten from us first. The purchase application is Here
If you would like up to date kitten arrival announcements, expected litters, and kitten availability announcements, then we recommend you go to our facebook fan page and become a fan of that page. Facebook will send you notifications when we post. Our facebook fan page is here: http://www.facebook.com/pocketleopardsbengals
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE WAITING LIST SERVICE FEE IS FOR A SERVICE. I WILL BE KEEPING TRACK OF THOSE ON THE LIST, AND CONTACTING THEM WHEN SOMETHING IS BORN THAT FITS THE DESCRIPTION THEY ARE LOOKING FOR. I CANNOT KEEP TRACK OF POTENTIAL BUYERS UNLESS THEY ARE ON THE WAITING LIST. THERE ARE TOO MANY INTERESTED PEOPLE TO KEEP TRACK OF OTHERWISE. IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO GET ON THE LIST, YOU MUST KEEP CHECKING BACK WITH ME FROM TIME TO TIME. WAITING LIST BUYERS GET FIRST PICK BEFORE THE KITTENS ARE OFFERED TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC.
FINALIZING THE PURCHASE OF A POCKET LEOPARDS BENGAL
Once you are approved to buy a kitten, you send in the down payment to hold the kitten and we mark the kitten as sold and take it off of the market. We will require payment for the kitten in full before the kitten leaves Pocket Leopards (or by scheduled spay/neuter appointment date, if applicable).
If you are late in making the final payment, we will hold the kitten for you for up to 30 days (we MUST hear from you and make arrangements for this, and you will be charged boarding fees. If we do not hear from you when it's time to make the final payment or if you fail to make final payment when promised, we will consider it a wavier of your down payment amount and we will place kitten back on the market immediately). If you still do not pay for the kitten in full (plus shipping if your kitten is being shipped) we will put the kitten back on the market and you lose your down payment. NOTE: The down payment is non-refundable, especially once you choose the kitten and we take it off of the market. The reason is because we agree to not sell the kitten to anyone else and should you change your mind the kitten will become harder to place the older it gets. All kittens are ready to go home at 12 to 14 weeks of age (this age can vary, depending on the needs of the kitten), after it has been spayed and neutered. We will not release a kitten before it is old enough physically, mentally and socially. When your kitten is of age to go home with you, you will need to pay the balance of the kitten via cash or money order or Zelle. For pickups, we only accept CASH or Zelle. No checks will be accepted for final payment unless the check is sent at least 10 working days in advance and has had a chance to clear. Paypal is NEVER accepted for final payment.
If your cat is shipping, you will need to pay for final payment and shipping in advance of the cat shipping out. If we underestimate you shipping price, you will be required to make up the difference before your registration paperwork is sent to you.
If you are picking up the cat, please bring a suitable carrier with you. If you do not have a carrier with you, we may refuse to send the kitten home with you until you have a suitable carrier and we will charge you boarding fees for the time the cat is here waiting for pickup. We try to have carriers on hand to sell to you, but you should not count on it.
At the time of pickup, or before shipping, you will be required to fill out a purchase agreement/contract (if you have not already done so) which also serves as your health guarantee. Please take all the time you need to read over the contract and please feel free to ask any questions you may have about the contract. If you do not agree with the contract, please do not purchase a cat from us. We expect all buyers to agree with and abide by the terms of the contract, whether you think the terms are fair or not. Remember it is a legally binding document for both you and us. If at any time before purchase you want to look over the contact, please contact us and we will send you a copy of it.
Final payment must be made by cash or money order, or Zelle. No checks or paypal will be accepted for the final payment, although the deposit may be submitted via paypal,cash,check or money order.
