Frequently Asked Questions 
Pricing - All of our kittens are priced at $1500.00 regardless of sex and/or color. Prior to leaving for their new home, your kitten will receive a veterinary exam, fecal test to ensure he/she is free from intestinal parasites, and necessary shots at eight weeks of age. 

Wait List/Deposits - We begin taking reservations and a deposit only a litter has been delivered. At that point we will begin taking reservations and a non-refundable deposit of $250.00. Kittens are reserved when deposits are received. This amount will be applied towards total price and is non-refundable! We accept deposits through PayPal and Venmo or Cashiers Check. (If you pay by cashiers check payment must be received within 72 hours).  Final payment is due at delivery and must be made by cash or cashiers check.  Please join our kitten wait list to be notified as soon as kittens become available.

Hypoallergenic - Siberians are not non-allergenic, but instead hypoallergenic (hypo- meaning “less” in Latin). This means that they’ll likely bother people allergic to cats less, but not necessarily completely so do not assume that buying a Siberian is a guarantee of no allergies. With that being said, Siberians are still commonly sought after for this trait (among many, many others of course). While there are many causes of allergic reactions to cats, about 60-90% are caused by a protein called Fel d-1. This protein is produced only in cats, either in their saliva or sebaceous glands (glands in the skin). When the Fel d-1 soaked saliva dries out in a cat’s fur (left from grooming itself), it can break off and become airborne, essentially creating an allergy-ridden indoor space. Siberians produce less Fel d-1, which causes less allergic reaction in people. For example, it’s estimated that the average cat produces 63,000 micrograms of Fel d-1 per gram, while a female Siberian will produce approximately 200 micrograms per gram.

Declawing - In the best interest of all our cats and kittens, Siberians of Santa Barbara does not allow declawing. 

Spaying/Neutering Requirements - We do require a written contract that requires you to have your kitten spayed/neutered when they achieve the proper age (4 to 6 Months). Your kitten will already be registered with The International Cat Association (TICA); however, your registration papers that verify your cat is a pure Siberian will not be mailed to you until we receive written verification from a licensed veterinarian that your kitten has been spayed/neutered.

Shipping - At this time we do not ship our kittens. We are located approximately 1 1/2 hours north from the greater Los Angeles area and 5 hours south of the San Francisco bay area. We will do everything we can to help make your purchase as easy as possible.
