How to Adopt a Jazzmania Kitten
ADOPTION PROCESS AND FEES
The total adoption fee for a Ragdoll kitten of the traditional colors and patterns is $1100. Traditional colors and patterns include the blue and seal mitteds and colorpoints, bi-colors, torties, lynxes, and flames. The adoption fee for the rarer MINK and BEW Ragdoll kittens is $1200.
A non-refundable deposit of $150 is required to reserve a kitten and will be deducted from the total adoption fee. The balance is due when your kitten is ready for pick-up.
The adoption fee includes EVERYTHING your kitten needs for his/her first year of life. Your kitten will be already "speutered" (spayed or neutered) with state-of-the-art anesthetic and surgical protocols, all vaccines and dewormings will be complete, your kitten will have had a physical by my vet along with a signed letter from him certifying that the kitten is in good health, and a health guarantee by contract will be provided. In addition, the registration paperwork from TICA will be available.
PLEASE NOTE THAT I DO NOT SHIP MY KITTENS......UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!!
It is entirely too stressful for a kitten to experience such a frightening process. In addition, I prefer to meet potential kitten adopters when possible. If driving to my location is not possible, many airlines will permit you to bring your kitten onboard in a carrier and be stowed underneath your seat for an additional charge. This is acceptable in some situations but must be discussed and approved in advance. I also prefer that adopters are not more than a 2-hour drive from my location.
WAIT LIST AND DEPOSIT
Because Ragdolls are so popular, there is almost always a wait list for kittens. To be placed on Jazzmania's wait list, a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit of $150.00 is required AFTER YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED. You may use the "Buy Now" button below to make a deposit through Paypal. If you do not have a PayPal account, the funds may come from a bank account or credit card from your end using the same link. You will then be added to Jazzmania's wait list immediately and on your way to adopting your very own Ragdoll kitten! You may also send a personal check or money order if preferred - mailing info can be provided. I do reserve the right to return your deposit if I feel your family is not a good match for a Ragdoll kitten.
BEFORE MAKING A DEPOSIT, PLEASE E-MAIL THE FOLLOWING INFO FOR APPROVAL TO:
Do you have family? Children? Ages?
Other pets? Types, ages and sex?
Do you have time to spend with a new kitten?
What are your thoughts on declawing?
Do you have a vet you are comfortable with now?
Please provide contact information including where you are located, e-mail address, and phone number.
Anything else you care to share would be greatly appreciated!
One can never have TOO much information.
Please also make a note if you have a preference for color/sex/pattern.
When the kittens are 7-8 weeks of age, they will be assessed to confirm colors, patterns, and personalities. It is important that a kitten's personality is a good match with your family and your family's lifestyle. When your name comes up on the wait list, I will contact you regarding available kittens and will provide pictures and personality descriptions. If you prefer a kitten other than those available or if the timingis not good for you to adopt, you may opt to wait for a future litter.
A pick-up appointment will be scheduled when the kittens are ready at 12 weeks of age. Due to Covid, appointments will be handled outdoors at my home following CDC guidelines (or in my garage if the weather is not appropriate). It's unfortunate that circumstances have changed but it is important for the safety of your family as well as for the safety of Jazzmania's cats and kittens.
Thanks for your understanding.
All vaccine/deworming info, signed health certificate from my vet, health guarantee, samples of your kitten’s favorite foods and a few of your kitten's favorite toys will be provided. Follow-up is extremely important as our association is not over after you pick up your baby. If you have any questions or concerns, please e-mail at anytime. In fact, I specifically request at least one follow-up so that I can be assured that your kitten is well-adjusted and happy (as well as you!) This also provides the opportunity to address any additional questions you may have.
