ANSWERS TO COMMON QUESTIONS FOR PROSPECTIVE ADOPTIVE PARTIES;
The adoption process; steps 1, 2, & 3.
STEP 1. Placing a reserve deposit for a kitten to be placed on the waitlist for a specific kitten or selecting from a litter already born
A $400.00 reserve deposit is required to be placed on the waitlist for an upcoming litter.
A deposit of 50% of the total adoption fee is required to place a hold on a specific kitten already born. Reserve deposits are applied towards the total balance of the adoption fee.
ADOPTION FEES; Adoption fees vary, I do not publish my adoption fees on each kitten. Adoption fees vary depending on the rarity of coloration and the sex or high demand for a certain starting at $1200.00 to $1800.00
STEP 2. Adoption Agreement Contract
I require a signed agreement contract to place a hold on a specific kitten already born or request to be placed on the waitlist for a kitten of preference from an upcoming litter. The adoption agreement can be downloaded from the HOME page.
STEP 3. Picking up your kitten
You will be notified when your kitten will be ready to go home. Typically kittens begin weening at 8 to 10 weeks of age so plan on 10 weeks from the date of birth to pick up your kitten.

Reserve deposits to be placed on my waitlist for an upcoming litter;
I accept PayPal payments, if you have an account, select the Friends and Family option to avoid a service fee. I will notify you to confirm that payment has been received and you have been officially placed on a my reserve waitlist or your wire transfer has been received and a statement of your new balance has been applied towards your kitten.
I accept personal checks for reserve deposits of $400. made out to Nanette Allen, I do not cash checks until we have an agreement and I have a kitten to offer you.
Once we have tagged a kitten that you have agreed to adopt, I will deposit your reserve deposit check and request you pay the balance of the 50% towards the total adoption fee at that time. The balance is due upon picking up your kitten in cash Paypal or Chase QuickPay, I do not accept checks for final payments!
Reserve deposits for kittens already born;
I require a signed adoption agreement contract and 50% deposit to place a hold on a kitten already born and available for adoption.
Waiting for a specific coloration or sex can take six months to a year based on the 68 day gestation period and breeding adult genetics.
I encourage prospective adoptive parties to contact me directly I prefer to discuss the details of the adoption process and timeline in person.
Speaking in person allows me the opportunity to get to know you and learn something about your experience with Maine Coons and your family.
