PURCHASING A KITTEN
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 a kitten you are interested in.)
Our Premier Waiting List is a $200 non-refundable fee based (which is applied to the deposit and purchase price of a kitten). It grants you exclusive access to pictures, videos, information, and events via our Premier Kitten Club.
Once an application is approved, you will be added to the waiting list in the order of application approval. On a set date (when kittens re typically 5 weeks old) members of the list can choose their kitten. You must choose or pass on the litter within 48 hours of being offered a kitten.
If you DECLINE a kitten, you may be asked to be removed from the waiting lists (keep in mind the fee is non-refundable so please make sure you read through our site and ask any questions before placing this fee) or wait for another litter.
If you ACCEPT a kitten you will read and sign our official contract and place a deposit. We will send you our contract. It is a digital contract via docsketch and does not require any downloading, printing, or mailing in. You are requested to read, ask questions then sign the contract. This must occur within 48 hours of accepting a kitten and receiving the contract.
b) You can then place a remaining $300 deposit totaling a $500 non-refundable deposit to reserve your chosen kitten via an INVOICE ELYSIAN BENGALS SENDS. We accept card (ran through square), PayPal, and venmo.
Kittens can have a Full deposit ($500 total) 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 can only be transferred to another kitten.
c) Once a deposit is placed a kitten is solely reserved for you. The price cannot increase. Deposits and fees are non-refundable (and total $500) unless the breeder backs out on the buyer, deposits are non-refund if the buyer backs out for any reason. depending on the payment method service fees may be added.
d) Once a kitten is fully reserved you will receive on a weekly basis updated pictures of your kitten and a live video will be recorded generally on Sunday unless noted otherwise.
Elysian Bengals are priced based on many factors such as Breed Standard Confirmation, color and pattern as well as temperament/personality. Some of our babies are magic pumpkins and will change over time thus prices will reflect this until a Full $500 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.
We offer a $100 service member discount as well as a 10% discount on multi kitten purchases including returning kitten owners.
Breeder reserves the right to keep kittens for their program before offering them to the waiting list.
Rehoming: Our kittens do not go to their new homes until 15 weeks of age. This is a set in stone policy. You can read about our Rehoming Policy here.
We reserve the right to provide a replacement kitten to any previous kitten owner ahead of names appearing on the current waitlist.
We do prioritize owners looking for two kittens and NR homes
