FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Question: Should I get one kitten or two? Should they be siblings?
Answer: We definitely recommend two, though we don't think it necessarily matters if they are siblings. Our girls Sophie & Cleo are 7 weeks apart in age, and are not related. They were both adopted as young kittens and are now inseparable. They are best friends. Usually you will find them sleeping curled up together in a drawer or on the couch. With siblings, the breeder should be able to recommend a pair that will be well suited in personality to each other.
Siamese cats are very social creatures, and most get along well with other cats. If you are thinking about adopting a Siamese, and you work long hours, we INSIST upon a pair. If not, the single cat will become very, very lonely, which is not good for their emotional well-being. Though, if you do have plenty of time to spend with your cat/kitten, they also do okay in a single cat home.
Question: I'm from the US. Can I adopt one of your kittens? Are there special requirements for crossing the border?
Answer: Yes! You can adopt one of our kittens, but we do not ship, so you will have to come pick them up when they are ready to leave.
There are no special requirements when crossing the Canada/US border. Our vet will produce a signed "International Health Certificate" that will help you, just in case.
Question: Can I declaw my kitten?
Answer: We do not believe in declawing, as it is a mutilation and is cruel to the animals. Cats can be easily trained to use a scratch post, and if all else fails, we recommend Soft Paws/Soft Claws as an alternative. To make it easier on you, our kittens have their claws trimmed weekly while in our care. This makes trimming claws easy and non-stressful, as the kitten knows what to expect, and is not frightened. If you would like more information on declawing, please contact us.
There is a clause in our contract that prohibits declawing in AllyCat Siamese kittens. All owners must sign the contract before their kitten goes to its new home.
Question: Why do I have to fill out an Adoption Application?
Answer: An application gives us your contact information and helps us to place the right kitten in the right home and to make sure all of our owners have as much information as possible about adopting their new kitten.
For example: If you have young children and other pets in your home, and we have a kitten that is shy or uncomfortable around children or other animals, we will recommend that you choose another kitten.
Another example: Have you heard of toxoplasmosis? When you answer "no" to this question, if there is a possibility that someone in your home may become pregnant, we know to inform you about the risks of toxoplasmosis in pregnancy and what you can to to prevent it.
Question: Will my information be given to a third party?
Answer: The ONLY companies that we give your information to are the Traditional Cat Association and PetSecure Pet Insurance. They only receive your contact information. All other information in the application is for our use only and is used to help place the right kitten in the right home and so that we can inform you of things you may not already know.
Your kitten is registered with the Traditional Cat Association and your contact information is displayed on your Registration Certificate.

Question: Why do I need to sign an Adoption Contract?
Answer: The life-time health and well-being of our kittens are important to us. Our contract protects both the owner and the kitten.
It must be signed by every owner of an AllyCat Siamese kitten and you must agree to all of the terms in the contract. It is non-negotiable.
