Elysian Bengals are priced based on many factors such as Breed Standard Confirmation, color and pattern as well as temperament/personality. Many of our babies are magic pumpkins and will change over time thus prices will reflect this until a deposit is put down. If you are curious as too what a kitten may look like, take a peek at some of our cats' own transformations
Elysian Bengals has a unique process of offering kittens. There is a process we strictly follow to avoid delaying families from finding the perfect kitten.
Inquiries are directed to fill out a kitten application. This allows us to get to know you and your family and ask a series of basic questions that can lead to further conversation.
If your application is approved you will be placed on our waiting list (if we do not already have kittens available for your consideration) Those on our waiting list are ALWAYS contacted before the general public.
a) Our waiting list is a general list. It consists of all approved applications and details gender, color and pattern potential kitten owners are looking for.
b) The list is in the order that we receive applications and approve them
c) There is no fee to be on the list or obligation to accept a kitten but if you find another kitten or are no longer looking for other reasons letting us know is greatly appreciated.
When we have a kitten available we will contact you via email or through our business page if we have been conversing there.
a) Each member will be contacted based on what they are looking for in regards to gender, color and pattern. MEMBERS WITH MORE SPECIFIC REQUESTS WILL BE CONTACTED OVER THOSE THAT DON’T CARE ABOUT COLOR, PATTERN OR GENDER WITHIN REASON. Generally, we do follow the exact order of our list.
We have a silver marble male available. There are 3 people on the waiting list
1. Sally wants a silver spotted male
2. Jack wants a silver or seal lynx female
3. Joe wants a silver of whichever gender and pattern
4. Jane wants a silver marble male
Jane will be contacted first than Joe than Sally.
b) You have 48 hours to accept or decline a kitten, which will be reiterated in our contact as a reminder. You may actively ask questions that may extend the 48 hours. If we do not hear from you we will move on on our waiting list and inform you as such.
If you DECLINE a kitten, you may be asked to be removed from the waiting list otherwise you remain on the list and will not lose your spot.
If you ACCEPT a kitten:
a) We will send you our contract. It is a digital contract via Hellosign and does not require any downloading, printing or mailing in. You are requested to read, ask questions then sign the contract.
b) You can then place a $500 non-refundable deposit via an INVOICE ELYSIAN BENGALS SENDS. We accept cash, card (ran through square), check, paypal and venmo.
c) Once a deposit is placed a kitten is solely reserved for you. The price cannot increase OR decrease.
d) You will receive on a weekly basis updated pictures of your kitten and a live video will be recorded generally on Fridays unless noted otherwise.
This information can also be found on throughout out website, on our facebook business page and a note is made on our kitten application before submission.
Kittens can have a deposit put on them no earlier than 5 weeks of age. At this time their listed price is locked in. a deposit will only be accepted after a kitten application is completed, approved. and a contract has been reviewed and signed. Deposits are non-refundable (unless determined otherwise by the breeder) and can be transferred to another kitten. If we feel a home is not right for a kitten we do reserve the right to cancel a deposit or sale at which time a full refund or a deposit transfer will be given. If the buyer cancels the deposit, it can only be transferred to another kitten.
Breeder reserves the right to keep a kitten for their program before offering them to the waiting list.
Deposits for pet kittens are $200 (depending on payment method service fees may be added)
Rehoming: Our kittens do not go to their new homes until 15-16 weeks of age. This is a set in stone policy. You can read about our Rehoming Policy here.
