Available Bengals at Indian Creek
All kittens are examined by a veterinarian and have recieved age appropriate vaccinations. Also included are TICA registration papers and a standard contract, which is your health guarantee.
Our kittens are evaluated based upon the TICA breed standard. Those sold as pets range in price between $1000 and $1200, determined by the quality, type, color, and pattern. Occasionally we may offer one of our retired breeders or a special needs kitten to a pet approved – forever home. For this we require an adoption fee of $250 to cover all veterinarian fees for wellness exam, blood panel, updated vaccinations and all spay/neuter expenses. Our breeders range from $1800 to $2500. We may allow a breeder quality cat/kitten to be sold as a pet but may not necessarily take less than a breeder price for the cat/kitten. Good Bengals are not inexpensive. You get what you pay for.
Indian Creek Bengals reserves the right to wait until a kitten or litter is as old as six weeks of age before allowing customers to choose an individual kitten from a particular litter. A deposit may be placed on a litter to assure first pick of this litter, but the choice of an individual kitten may take up to six weeks until we have the time to fully evaluate the quality of each individual kitten. We can usually estimate the price range that a litter will fall into but individual pricing is difficult to determine before a kitten has the chance to start maturing.
Most kittens are ready for a responsible and loving home between 11-14 weeks of age, depending on their maturity. Please do not ask us to release your kitten before we feel it is ready to go. We adhere to this policy for the safety of our kittens, and the emotional stress it causes us and the new family.
We strongly encourage kittens sold as pets to be altered before leaving our facility. However, ALL pet kittens must be spay/neutered by the age of six months. This is strictly enforced with no exceptions. We are fortunate to be able to offer a low cost spay/neuter to our clients purchasing kittens. Males are $125 and females are $150. Microchipping is also available at the time of surgery at a cost of $45. This price is not included in the purchase price of your kitten.
For the health and safety of your pet, as well as all the other cats under our care we cannot hold your cat/kitten past their pickup date except under extenuating circumstances. Should the buyer request that the cat/kitten be held for a period beyond 7 days after this time, a boarding charge of $5 per day will be accrued, unless specific arrangement to the contrary have been made between parties. Our space is limited and we are not really set up for boarding.
In most cases, clients recieve their new family member at our home. However, we are happy to help with transportation but ask to be compensated for expenses. If transportation is necessary by car, delivery costs will be a minimum of $25 plus necessary related round trip expenses (gas, tolls, parking, lodging, etc). Shipping is available throughout the continental United States. The buyer assumes the costs for all shipping related expenses (airfare, appropriate carrier, health certificate, etc) estimated to be no less than $300.
A deposit will hold your unique companion until it is ready to go home. $200 plus a signed deposit agreement is required to hold a pet kitten until their scheduled pickup time. A $500 deposit and signed deposit agreement will hold a breeder kitten until they are ready to leave our cattery. It is the clients responsibility to review the contract prior to signing a deposit agreement. Deposits may be transferred to a different kitten until the kitten being held by deposit reaches the age of eight weeks. After this time deposits are no longer transferable. Deposits are deducted from the overall purchase price of the cat/kitten at the time of pickup. Because we are a registered business and licensed cattery, we do have to charge a 6% state sales tax on all on cats/kittens being sold.
We accept PayPal credit card payments, cash, or personal checks for deposits. If you choose to use PayPal an additional 3.5% be added to the overall amount being sent to cover all of PayPal’s fees and service charges.At the time of pickup, any outstanding balance must be paid in cash.
