Q: What does it Cost to purchase a Kitten from ForestWind Siberians?
A: ForestWind Siberian kittens are only 1800 USD to purchase as pets. Kittens are microchipped, vaccinated for distemper, and desexed prior to going home. No exceptions. We do not place our Siberians into homes of smokers.
Q: Does ForestWind Siberians offer any discounts?
A: Yes, we offer a 100 usd "Buddy Discount" when you buy two kittens from us. This discount is available whether you choose littermates, or return at a later time for your second ForestWind kitten. It is deducted from your final payment.
Q: Do you ever have adult Siberians available? If so, how much do they cost to buy?
A: Yes, we place our retired Siberians as pets. ForestWind Siberians retires our Siberian cats at a young age. Our Siberian cats deserve to live most of their lives as pets. Please indicate you desire to adopt an adult when you contact us. The retired adult Siberian application process is more involved than that for a kitten.
A: Retired Siberian Adults and Teenagers who are up to age five years old are only 850 USD. Over age five, they are 650 USD.
Please note: We regret that we are unable to place our retired adults into any of the following situations: allergy or asthma homes; children under 10 years old; have other pets (may be acceptable depending on the temperament of retiree); or homes with smokers.
Q: Do I have to pay extra to have my Siberian desexed after adoption? Can I elect not to have my Siberian desexed?
A: There is no additional cost to desex your ForestWind Siberian kitten. Desexing, vaccination, and microchipping is all included in your purchase cost. All risk of desexing is borne by ForestWind Siberian Cats.
A: *All* pet Siberians are placed desexed, vaccinated, and microchipped, no exceptions.
Please note: Your 10 year genetic health contract is validated by the registration of your Siberian’s microchip number. This is your responsibility.
Q: I changed my mind about purchasing a kitten, may I have my money back?
A: We regret to disappoint you, but all payments made towards purchase, fur sample, or allergy challenge are non-refundable. You are welcome to delay purchase if your circumstances have changed. Your Reservation will “roll forward" until you are ready to adopt. Price is stable for one year from the time of your paid Reservation.
Q: I want to pick out my kitten in person, do you allow this?
A: Absolutely! We welcome our kitten families to our home to select their kitten in person :) Please request our "Visit FAQs" to learn more :)
Q: We are cat allergic / asthmatic, do we have extra adoption requirements?
A: Yes, allergy or asthma homes have extra purchase requirements, such as passing an allergy challenge, learning about grooming and care steps to reduce reactivity, and securing a Safe Home before bringing your Siberian kitten home.
Q: What is my first exploration step?
A: Email us at [email protected] requesting our Kitten FAQs and Form.
Q: By submitting a form, am I obligated to purchase a kitten?
A: There is no requirement or implied obligation to purchase from us.
Q: Is there a fee for me to submit these forms?
A: There are no charges accrued by returning completed forms.
Q: Why is it necessary to complete these forms? Can't you just call me and answer all my questions?
A: Completing and returning the exploration form is an opportunity for you to share your questions and preferences with us. We require your inquiry form be completed and returned (together with the allergy /asthma form if you are cat allergic or asthmatic), prior to our contacting you by telephone.
A: Most of the information about the Siberian breed, our breeding program, testimonials about adopting with us, photos of our kittens, and much, much more information can be found here on our Website, in our Blog, and on our Facebook Fan page.
This step is necessary to weed out those who are just window shopping and are not taking time to conduct their breed research first. There are many breeders who are happy to sell you a kitten sight unseen and with no requirements. That is not the philosophy of ForestWind Siberians. Our Siberians are a labour of love for us. We spend an enormous amount of time every single day of the year taking care of our Siberians and of our ForestWind Kitten Families. In return, we expect you will responsibly conduct your research, and share information about yourself, and your interest in our Siberians. Then we are very happy to call and discuss particulars with you - including more about your specific kitten needs and wants.
Please note: if you are cat allergic or asthmatic, you will receive an email with questions about your allergies or asthma. Your answers help us provide you with personalized information designed to help you enjoy a successful Siberian kitten purchase with us :)
Q: I can't afford the whole puchase price right now, may I take my Siberian home now, and pay you the balance over time?
A: We are deeply sorry, but due to having been scammed several times we are no longer able to send any Siberian home pending payment in full.
Q: Is my purchase contract a legal document?
A: Yes, your contract is a legal document providing you protections, but also spelling out your responsibilities.
Q: What are my options for getting my Siberian safely to my home?
A: You have three options: First, you are welcome to come to our home to pick up your Siberian. Second, we will bring your Siberian to you at the Buffalo-Niagara airport for no charge. Third, Courier Service. If you would like your kitten hand carried to your closest airport by a courier, please let us know on your inquiry form, as there are extra steps we need to take right away in order to secure you Courier service.
Q: Where do your Siberians live? I’ve heard that some breeders raise their Siberian cats and kittens in barns or sheds in their backyards, or even in cages!
A: At ForestWind, our Siberians live and play inside our home. Our Siberians grow up healthy and happy because they are loved and well cared for right in the heart of our family, just as you would want them to be! They are not caged or crated unless they are traveling, or at a show.
Q: Where is ForestWind Siberians located?
A: We are located in Buffalo, NY, USA. Our kittens can be found from Scandinavia to Europe, Africa to Japan, and from coast to coast in both Canada and the United States. We look forward to helping you welcome your very own ForestWind Siberian kitten or cat to your home!
