* A deposit fee is placed to hold a cat/kitten for a buyer. At this time I am holding the kitten for you and no one else can purchase the said cat/kitten. All holding fees (deposits) are non-refundable. The goal of our Cattery is to place our cat/kittens in loving homes in a timely manner so they may bond with their new family. If a cat/kitten is held for a Buyer, a change of mind can quite often jeopardize the chance of that particular kitten to be placed in a home while they are still of a desirable age. When the sale of the cat/kitten is consummated, the deposit shall be applied toward the balance owing on the purchase price. The balance is due prior to any shipping or pick up. There is a $10.00 per day boarding fee if you can not pick up your kitten on the agreed date. Richdean Persians also holds the right to return any deposits at any time on any held kitten at her discretion.
Kitten Prices : Quality determines price.
Pet quality cats are cats that do not meet the
written breed standard in some way and/or have some fault that would not make
them a good cat for a breeding program.... In many cases, they are nice
quality cats, but they aren't "good enough" to be kept entire and to
contribute to a breeding program.. We strongly believe that only the
best cats should be used in breeding programs - the rest make wonderful
pets for people to own, be owned by, and loved. (Which is why it's very
important to us to have sweet-natured cats, as well as healthy lines).
Just because a cat is "pet quality, it does not mean they are 2nd class
"kitty cats" - just that they are not what the written standard calls
for, so they shouldn't be used for breeding.
from $750.00 (Doll Faced) - $1300 (Neutered - This is NOT Negotiable.
Breeder quality cats are, to us, cats with no major faults, but over all have something to add to a breeding program. Sometimes, cats that we feel are "breeder" quality can be shown and may even win at shows, but they are not the level we consider to be "show quality." quality with breeding rights, not show quality, from $1300.00 +.
Show Neuter are cats that are of "Show Quality" that are Neutered/Desexed and go on to be a campaigned show cat $1200 +
