Getting on the waitlist is a good idea. We let people choose their kitten based on the position on the waitlist. On requesting to be put on our waitlist, you will be given a questionnaire that will help us provide any guidance (if needed) to select your kitten, when the time comes. Suppose your requirements would include having an outdoor cat; in that case, we could not accommodate you, as due to health and safety reasons, we only sell kittens to be indoor cats. Also, to be placed on the waitlist, we take a fully refundable deposit of $75 per kitten. If you at any point decide to be taken out of the waitlist, we will refund the deposit. To be put on the waitlist, please read through the conditions below and contact us at the at snowykittencattery@gmail.com.

Merged waitlist for all queens

We will open our waitlist on October 1, 2024 at midnight.


Waitlist Conditions

  1. POSITION ON THE WAITLIST: By being placed on the waitlist you obtain a position that determines an order in which you can choose your kitten(s) from those that are available.

  2. WAITLIST SIZE: As we cannot predict the number of kittens in the next litter, we cannot guarantee that by being placed on the waitlist there will be a guaranteed kitten for you. However, with a typical litter being 4-5 kittens you have to decide whether you want to be put on the waitlist or not. Some people may decide to drop from the waitlist and some may pass on selecting a kitten in a particular litter and wait for another litter.

  3. REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT: To be placed on the waitlist we take a fully refundable deposit of $75 per kitten. If you at any point decide to be taken out of the waitlist we will refund the deposit.

  4. BREEDER’s PRIORITY: The breeder reserves the right to select a kitten to be kept for breeding before waitlisted people will be let to select their kittens.

  5. SELECTING A KITTEN: Once kittens are born you will be notified. At the age of 6-8 weeks you will be asked to select a kitten (in the order on the waitlist after applying Breeder’s Priority clause). At this point you can decide either:
    1. to adopt one: you will be asked to pay a non-refundable reservation fee of $250 (your waitlisting fee applies towards the reservation fee so you are asked to pay an additional $175); or
    2. you may pass once. The next time you are asked whether you would like to adopt a kitten (if more than three months has gone by since you had decide to pass), you can either choose to adopt or you will be removed from the waitlist.
    3. to drop from the waitlist; we will refund your $75 waitlisting fee.

    If all kittens have been selected, remaining people on the waitlist all move up in order and wait for the next litter.

  6. FINAL PURCHASE: If you decided to adopt a kitten, at this point you will be asked to sign the CONTRACT. The remaining portion of a kitten price has to be paid in full before kittens are 12 weeks old. Kittens go to their new homes at the age of 14-16 weeks. They will be spayed or neutered, and will have two rounds of vaccinations.

  7. TRANSPORTATION: After making a transportation arrangement you will be asked to pay the cost of transportation which may include air travel ($135- $220, see below), transportation crate cost (cca $45, you keep and use the crate afterwards), any extra veterinarian certificates needed for the travel/customs/etc. All the costs must be paid before the kitten is shipped to your home. In the case of pickup from our cattery there are no transportation costs.
    Note: to get an idea how much the air transport costs check Air Canada Cargo pricing. We are shipping from YVR, the maximum cost is zone C which is below $220 (incl.fees) to the East Coast, Zone A (e.g. to Alberta) is $135 (please note that prices may changed). We can ship with other airlines if this is preferable because of a direct connection.
