|HOW TO PURCHASE A KITTEN FROM RESQME FARMS CATTERY
If you see a kitten/cat you like on one of our Available Pages, please email or call us with any questions you
might have about the kitten and our contract and health guaranty. We are more than happy to answer any
questions you may have about our program and each of our cats. The kitten's pet price is normally posted
by the pictures. If you are interested in purchasing a kitten/cat with breeding rights, please call us to discuss.
We only sell our kittens to very specific approved breeding programs.
We prefer cash or PayPal and the PayPal payment must clear prior to shipment or pick-up of the cat. If you
use PayPal, you may use the "Friends or Family" option to send money and no fees are charged unless you
use a credit card. If you use a credit card or the "Business" option then you must add 3% to the total
payment to cover the fees. We do except checks as long as the check has cleared both your and my banks
prior to shipment or pick-up of the cat. We are sorry if this is an inconvenience, but with all of the bad
checks and forged money orders, we have been forced into this position. The email to use for PayPal is:

|PRICES: Napoleon prices vary depending on quality and colors. Napoleons are available in Standard (short
legs) and Non-Standard (long legs). The Standard Napoleon is a rare and greatly prized cat and will be as
pricey as other very rare Purebreds. The Non-Standard is also a Purebred Pedigreed Napoleon with all of the
same wonderful traits as the Standard, but has the traditional length legs. These cats are comparably priced
with other Purebred breeds. The Non-Standard is also greatly prized by breeders and now is able to be
Shown competitively. As with most other Purebred breeds, Napoleon kittens can be classified as Pet Quality,
Breeder Quality, and/or Show Quality. Breeders look at their kittens and try their best to determine whether
that kitten will come close to meeting the written Breed Standard and be competitive in the Show Ring.
Naturally, these cats will bring in a higher price. Along those same lines are cats that are Breeder Quality.
These kittens are offered to other breeders first and are sold with breeding rights at a higher price. These
kittens may or may not be Show Quality, but they may fit a certain type to enhance a breeding program. Pet
Quality kittens are those kittens with the health, beauty, temperament, and dignity found in all Purebred
Pedigreed Napoleons, but that might not be perfect for Show and/or Breeding. The Napoleon is an extremely
popular breed and the demand for healthy quality kittens is high. To provide you with the healthiest and
most socialized kitten you can get, we provide them with the best of everything in care. This is a time
consuming and expensive endeavor that is done with love.
Our Standard Pet Quality kittens start at around $1000. Our Non-Standard Pet Quality kittens start at around
$500. For Breeder/Show Quality kitten prices, please call us. We will have retired breeders available from time
to time to good homes. We will have older kittens and young adults available from time to time for
|DEPOSITS: Our kittens sell pretty quickly. We do accept deposits to hold the kitten of your choice. The
deposit amount is one half of the sell price of the kitten. The deposits (along with any other monies paid)
are non-refundable unless the kitten becomes unavailable for any reason. So, please make absolutely
certain of your decision in choice of kitten prior to making your deposit. Deposits are non-refundable due
to the advertising time lost. Many people may be turned away because we have no kittens available due
to holding your kitten for you. These people move on to purchase a kitten elsewhere. The older a kitten
gets the more difficult it becomes to sell them and to do so requires reducing their price. Ensuring our
kittens are all placed in loving homes is our most important goal. Read our Purchasing and Health
Contract (view link above) prior to placing your deposit!
|RESQME FARMS CATTERY IS PROUD TO BE A
MEMBER OF THE FOLLOWING CAT REGISTRIES: CFF,
TICA, CFA, AND ACA! RESQME FARMS HAS DECIDED
TO REGISTER OUR NAPOLEONS WITH CFF BECAUSE
THIS REGISTRY NOT ONLY RECOGNIZES OUR NAME,
BUT WILL ALLOW US TO MAINTAIN THE ORIGINAL
VISION OF THE NAPOLEON BREED.
WE MEET ALL REQUIREMENTS OF THESE
ASSOCIATIONS AS A "CATTERY OF EXCELLENCE",
WHICH MEANS OUR CATS ARE HOUSED IN A
HEALTHY, CLEAN ENVIRONMENT WITH PLENTY OF
ROOM FOR THEM TO PLAY! OUR CATS LIVE IN OUR
HOME, BUT WE DO HAVE A CATTERY OUTBUILDING
FOR SEGREGATION FOR BREEDING AND MEDICAL
PURPOSES, GROOMING, AND OUR RESCUE WORK.
|WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO
REFUSE SALE OF ANY KITTEN
TO ANY PERSON AT ANY TIME.
|PLEASE DO NOT BUY A NAPOLEON KITTEN WITHOUT FIRST SEEING AT
LEAST A THREE GENERATION PEDIGREE ON THE PARENTS TO ENSURE
YOU ARE GETTING WHAT YOU ARE PAYING FOR!
|SUGGESTED QUESTIONS FOR NAPOLEON BREEDER PRIOR TO PURCHASE:
1. Is there a contract for you to review prior to purchase?
2. Is there a health guaranty for you to review prior to purchase?
3. Is there a three generation pedigree for you to review prior to purchase? The answer to this question will tell you whether or
not the cat has been bred within the acceptable outcrosses for at least three generations. That is an acceptable number of
generations to ensure you are getting a Purebred Pedigreed Napoleon. It will tell you if your cat is going to have the temperament of
the Napoleon and not just the look. It is also to ensure you that the cat is not too closely inbred. Line breeding of purebred cats is
acceptable, but too closely related parents (example: brother/sister) can result in some health issues with your kitten. And if you plan
on using the cat as a breeder, you need to ensure it is not too closely related to your other cats in your program.
4. How does the breeder socialize their kittens in their program? Kittens raised in out buildings rather than inside the home are
sometimes not as social.
5. What is the breeder's program like (everything from housing, feeding, health care, etc.)? This can give you great insight into
whether or not this breeder is the right one for you.
6. What are the breeder's goals for their program (what are they trying to produce in their kittens)? A good breeder is more
interested in the health and welfare of their cats and that their kittens are going to good homes than anything else.
7. Does the breeder Show some of their cats? If the breeder is Showing cats, then they are usually breeding for healthy, well
socialized kittens. But, you have to beware of those few breeders that give most of their attention to their Show cats because their pet
quality cats often are left without much socialization.
8. Is the breeder a member of a recognized cat registry? This is important to the breed. The more Napoleons registered means
the better their chances for acceptance and advancement. Not being a member of a registry does not mean the breeder’s kittens are
not of great quality and healthy.
9. Is their cattery registered with a recognized registry? Same as above.
10. Will this kitten have a Championship registration number with the registry? While Napoleons have not advanced this far yet,
this question will tell you if whether or not the cat can compete in Shows at the Championship level with certain registries once we do
advance and whether or not it will produce Championship Showable kittens if you want to breed your cat. It is basically the same
question as number 3, but unless you are experienced in reading cat pedigrees, this question can pinpoint exactly whether or not you
are getting the breeding you want in your Napoleon.
11. Is this cat PKD clear? PKD is a genetic kidney disease prevalent in the Persian Breed Group/Hybrids, such as the Napoleon.
All breeders should be able to show proof that the kitten's parents are PKD clear, which makes the kitten PKD clear. Never purchase a
Napoleon kitten without a written guaranty that the kitten is PKD clear and if it is not, what the breeder will do to make it right. Not
only is this an important health question regarding any kitten you purchase, it is important to the breed. Most reputable breeders will
not breed a cat that has not been PKD tested first. We would like to wipe this disease out in the Napoleon population. That is very
doable if no one will purchase a kitten without this guaranty!
None of these questions or considerations alone should deter you from purchasing a kitten from a particular breeder if you feel
comfortable that you are getting the kitten of your choice and that you have enough information to base your purchase decision on.
This information is provided as an educational tool, to help you feel comfortable when choosing a breeder. It is meant more as hints
and tips about purchasing from any breeder and come away feeling happy with your choice of kitten and knowing the decision to
purchase your kitten was an informed one.

We will ship within the US only. If you are looking for a cat to be shipped overseas then you will need to contract with a pet
shipping company. When shipping in cargo there are temperature restrictions - not too hot or too cold. So, the temperatures
have to meet these requirements at the departure and receiving ends and any stops in between. Shipping in mid summer or
mid winter does tend to get a bit tricky. Traveling in cabin does not have those restrictions. Both cargo and in cabin have
restrictions on the carrier used. The cost of shipping a kitten in cargo is nearly as expensive, if not more so, than a person
flying. PetsJets whose website is http://www.petsjets.com/ is the only agency I am aware of at this time providing this service.
