Our kittens are raised with lots of love, and it's important for us to know that they are adopted into caring homes. Please read over our adoption process and feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
1. Join the waiting list & follow our social media for updates.
The best way to have a chance at reserving one of our kittens is to join our waiting list by completing the waiting list form here, and follow our Facebook and Instagram (@carolinakits) to stay updated on upcoming litters. We do require a $50 non-refundable fee to join our waiting list. This fee does go towards the total price of the kitten. This fee does not guarantee when our next availability will be nor does it guarantee pricing. Our pricing does vary from season to season. Current pricing information can be found here. After we receive the completed waiting list form, we will send you an invoice for the $50 fee via PayPal. After the invoice is paid, your name will be added to our waiting list.
2. Wait for our next availability.
We generally have several litters throughout the year, typically in the spring and fall. We post regular updates on our social media. You can also find information about our upcoming litters on the kittens page. When our kittens are old enough to be reserved, typically 4-6 weeks old, they will be made available to those on our waiting list in the order that individuals joined by filling out our waiting list form and paying the $50 waiting list fee.
3. Reserve your kitten with a deposit.
As our kittens become available, we will contact those on our waiting list with quality pictures of each kitten, as well as information on how to go about reserving a kitten. If we have the perfect kitten for you, let us know that you are interested and would like to reserve him/her. We will send you an invoice via PayPal for a deposit of $250 to reserve your kitten. The deposit is non-refundable and it does go towards the total price of the kitten. After we receive the deposit, we will email you the kitten's contract. The contract should be signed, scanned, and emailed back to complete the reservation process. Please read over a sample of our contract here. After you have reserved your kitten, he/she will not be available to anyone else. We know that waiting for your baby to come home is the hardest part, and so we make sure to send regular pictures/videos and updates!
4. Schedule pickup/delivery.
When your kitten is old enough to go home, you are welcome to come pick him/her up. If pickup isn't an option, however, we do work with an amazing pet courier who would be able to deliver your kitten. The courier fee does vary, but generally it's in the ballpark of $300-$600 for destinations within a 14 hr drive from us. We would be happy to arrange the courier service, but the fee is payable directly to our courier upon delivery.
5. Bringing your baby home!
We let our babies go home when they are ready, usually around 12 weeks old. When it's time to bring your baby home, he/she will be eating solid food, completely litter boxed trained, and properly socialized. All of our kittens will have been examined by our vet and released in good health before they go home. Your kitten will have a complete health record for you to see when they were dewormed and vaccinated. He/she will also have a one year health guarantee against genetic or congenital defects. In addition, we require that our pet kittens be spayed/neutered before six months of age. All of this information will be covered in more detail in the contract.
When you bring your kitten home, it may take him/her a few days to get used to the new environment. You may want to give your kitten a couple of days in a quiet room to adjust, and slowly introduce other household pets. It is common for kittens to show signs of stress through sneezing or watery eyes for the first few days after coming home.
We will send each of our kittens home with food samples and toys. Our supplies page has links to the food and litter that your kitten is accustomed to, as well as supplements, toys, grooming supplies, and a pet carrier.
Congratulations on your new baby! And remember we are always here if you have any questions.
