SimbaIceberg is Scottish Fold & Scottish Straight cattery. We work with rare pointed colors and officially registered (№31945) with The International Cat Association (TICA).
Each kitten from our cattery has a complete standard package of documents.
Standard package of documents for the export from Ukraine includes:
Our cattery is located in Ukraine, but our graduates live all over the world: EU countries, USA, Japan.
You can see detailed information about our graduated on this page.
Delivery is possible to any country.
Delivery by Cargo KLM to all major international airports. The delivery price depends on the destination.
The shipping price to the USA (major international airports) is about 690 USD.
We do not ship our cats with private mediators-carriers.
Our breeding cats have DNA tests for polycystic kidney disease (PKD) by Animal DNA Laboratory (Melbourne, Australia), tests for immunodeficiency (FIV) and leukemia cats virus (FeLV) with negative results (healthy). Also tested for blood group. All our cats are vaccinated against rabies of cats, feline panleukopenia, herpesviral and caliciviral infection with US and EU-certified vaccines.
If the buyer wants his kitten to be additionally personally tested for various genetic, viral and infectious diseases, then we are ready to do it.
This requirement will be specified in the contract. We will send you a list of all possible tests and their cost.
The cost of additional personal testing of a kitten is paid by the buyer.
We comply with international veterinary requirements, so all our kittens are fully vaccinated (Bioveta Biofel PCH + Bioveta Biofel PCHR) before moving to a new home. They can leave our cattery at the age not earlier than 4.5 months if additional test such as rabies virus antibody test (rabies serology testing) is not needed for import into your country.
This test is needed for import to all countries of the European Union, Japan and some other countries.
This test is not needed for import to the USA and Canada.
If you have not found your country on the list and do not know if you need this test – this is not a problem.
If you are interested in buying a kitten from my cattery, I can always clarify all the information in the competent authorities of your country.
If the rabies virus antibody test (rabies serology testing, rabies titration test) is needed to import into your country, then I will prepare all the necessary documents.
The cost of this test is paid by the buyer separately.
You can buy a kitten in our cattery only if you are final buyer and buy a kitten for yourself.
We do not cooperate with resellers and other intermediaries, as well as we do not sell our kittens to pet stores (pet shops).
We negotiate only directly with a kitten’s buyer – the person with whom a kitten will live.
We have never cooperated with any intermediaries, we do not do it now and we are not going to do it in the future.
Unfortunately, many scammers use photos of our cats or even try to act on our behalf.
We recommend that you always contact us using contact form on our official website http://www.simba-iceberg.com/en/contacts or directly to email@example.com.
We sell all our kittens only with the contract.
Such the contract fixes all terms of sale and transfer of money, all guarantees, as well as personal data of both parties under the contract (full names, residential address, passport details, other contact details and etc.).
We accept all payments only after full agreement of all points of the contract.
We always conduct official correspondence from our official emails, that look like ***@simba-iceberg.com.
We do not use @gmail.com, @mail.com, @yahoo.com, @outlook.com and other unbranded mails.
If you contacted us on social networks, we can advise you.
But, if we need to discuss the terms of a particular deal, conclude a contract, transfer money, etc., we always ask you to contact us through our official website.
If you are offered to transfer money during the correspondence on any social network, then you can definitely be sure that the person you are communicating with has nothing to do with our cattery. This is a fraud.
We have never cooperated with any intermediaries (resellers, pet shops and etc.), we do not do it now and we are not going to do it in the future.
We do not negotiate in social networks and on third-party sites, we use only our official email for this.
The first litter of Scottish kittens was born in our cattery in September 2011.
Since then we have already formed a certain policy of work.
It is to give all our kittens good new owners.
Honestly, here we could write an incredibly long list of what a good, from our point of view, owner should do. This list would definitely include the moments associated with nutrition, veterinary care, general care of a cat. We think that no one will read 300 pages of such information :)
In short, we believe that a good owner loves his cat and always acts in its interests.
As you could already understand, the choice of new owners for our kittens is not something that we take lightly.
Kittens that are born in our cattery are with us 24/7 from the very moment of their birth. And we treat them like children, because they also grow, take the first steps, learn to eat the first food… They are members of our family.
This is why we appreciate very much if you provide us with some information about yourself and how you are going to raise one of our beautiful kittens!
A small number of litters are born in our cattery because we adhere to the generally accepted voluntary code of ethics of cat breeders.
We have so many adult animals (future parents of kittens), to whom we can provide decent care, comfortable living conditions and a lot of personal attention every day.
This means that we do not keep our animals in cages or separate rooms without people. They are always in contact with a person. Therefore, we do not have many adult animals.
Our “retired” producers also live with us, surrounded by no less love and care! <3 <3 <3
The number of litters is also affected by the fact that we do not mate our cats in every estrus.
We try to follow the rule 1 litter for 1 year. Maximum is 3 litters in 2 years.
Therefore, if you decided to buy a kitten in our cattery, we suggest that you join our waiting list.
We are very serious about responsible possession of a cat. We believe that the best decision to buy a kitten is a decision that was not made spontaneously. If you decide to accept a new member in your family and you are ready to wait for this moment, then you definitely made a well-considered decision. It deserves respect.
The first advantage is the priority right to buy a kitten.
We have a list of approved future owners of our kittens (these are people who have already gone through a similar procedure of joining our waiting list before you).
We inform about the birth of new kittens only people who are on our waiting list.
After all the participants of the waiting list have selected their kittens according to the priority allocation rules, information on the remaining (not reserved kittens) is placed on the site of the cattery with the mark “available for sale”. Such kittens will be available for sale at regular prices.
The second advantage is the special price of a kitten.
If you have serious intentions and are ready to wait for the birth of a kitten, then we are ready to meet you half-way.
If you pre-join our waiting list, you can expect a better price.
The third advantage is the additional preparation time.
It’s no secret that not only the house requires preparation for the arrival of a kitten, but the psychological state of a person requires this.
You do not just need to get ready and get used to this joyful thought, but also thoroughly prepare in terms of theoretical material.
During the whole waiting time of the kitten, you have the opportunity to ask all questions that somehow relate to the life of your future kitten. Proper feeding, proper care, veterinary moments, types of toys and much more!
The fourth advantage is the opportunity to observe the development of a kitten from the first days of its life.
We guarantee you regular updates of information about your kitten from the first days of its life. We send photos and video materials with the frequency specified in the contract. Questions about a kitten – at any time and in any quantity! We always try to respond as quickly as possible to the best of our ability and free time!
So, now we will briefly describe the rules for allocating priorities in our waiting list.
Or, if very briefly, who will get the kitten first?
The current Waiting List is displayed in real time on this page below.
The right of “first choice”
We would like to note at once that in our cattery we are engaged in breeding work aimed at improving the breed characteristics of Scottish Fold and Scottish Straight cats. Therefore, we reserve the right of “first choice” of any kitten from any litter. After a kitten class is defined as a “potential show class”, we reserve the right not to offer such a kitten to people on our waiting list, nor to offer it to third parties for sale. This is a common practice among breeders of cats, because this is what makes it possible to improve the breed. That is why we reserve the right to hold a kitten for ourselves, which, we believe, will allow us to move forward in our breeding program.
Distribution of kittens between participants of our waiting list begins after the kittens are 2 months old from the moment of birth.
At this time a kitten’s breeding class is already understandable, and it is also clear whether this kitten is considered as the future producer of our cattery or not.
The first information about available kitten will be received by the person who applied for a kitten with such parameters and, at the same time, is higher on the waiting list for exactly such a kitten.
Ie, a kitten will be offered to a buyer when the queue number of a buyer on the waiting list will be 1 (first) for kittens with such parameters.
The priority of a buyer’s right to reserve a kitten corresponds to the number of a buyer’s queue on the waiting list.
Detailed rules for reserving such a kitten or refusing to buy it are fixed in our contract.
In order to join our waiting list you need to fill out the form on this page.
After we receive your application, we will contact you and discuss all the questions.
If our views on all questions coincide, then we will invite you to join our waiting list.
You can join our waiting list by signing a contract for the buying of a kitten from future litters.
We propose to conclude a contract that fixes not only the personal data of the parties, the terms of sale, the financial terms of the deal, but also all guarantees from both our side and yours.
