Frequently Asked Questions 
Pricing - Our kittens are priced at $2250.00 regardless of sex and or color. Prior to leaving for their new home your kitten will receive a veterinary exam and necessary shots at 8 - 10 weeks of age. 

Wait List/Deposits - We begin taking reservations and a deposit only after a litter has been delivered. At that point we will begin taking applications and deposit of $250.00. Kittens are reserved when deposits are received. This amount will be applied towards total price. 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, Venmo or cashiers check.  

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 (5 to 6 Months). Your kitten will already be registered with The International Cat Association (TICA); however, your registration papers  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 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.
