clean and pleasant environment, and with proper nutrition,
health care, and companionship.

before the age of six months. Buyer assures and guarantees that this
kitten will not be used for breeding or stud.
- Health Guarantee: This kitten is guaranteed of sound health upon
delivery or arrival, and for a period of 72 hours thereafter if vetted within
that time. Failure to have the animal checked by a licensed veterinarian
within 72 hours will void any guarantee. It is recommended that the new
kitten be quarantined during that 72-hour period. If found to be
medically deficient with an untreatable or life-threatening problem, this
must be reported to the Seller immediately. If professional medical care
is given to the kitten during the 72-hour period, the Buyer shall be
responsible for all veterinary and professional expenses incurred on
behalf of the kitten. The Seller shall at no time and under no
circumstances be liable for more that the replacement of the kitten.
Upon its return, it will be replaced with another kitten of equal value. The

available at the time of return, Seller will have up to one year to furnish a
comparable kitten. The kitten cannot be returned for compensation after
the guaranteed period has expired and/or it has been exposed to
another cat. Seller will not honor any health guarantee if the kitten dies
of a virus from contact with another animal not bred at this Cattery. The
buyer agrees to provide immediate veterinary care to this kitten if it
shows signs of distress, illness, or injury. Failure to do so will render
the guarantee null and void. If the kitten dies within the guarantee
period, despite medical treatment, compensation will be made ONLY if
a licensed veterinarian certifies the cause of death. When the kitten
arrives at your home he/she will have been inoculated at least twice for
(1) Panleukopenia, (2) Viral Rhinotracheitis, (3) Calicivirus. Upon
buyer’s first veterinarian visit it is suggested that the buyer discuss the
FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus) and FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis)
vaccines with their veterinarian and proceed according to the
veterinarian’s suggestion at that time.
- The kitten is guaranteed against congenital defects for ONE YEAR.
Should the animal die within that time as a direct result of a congenital
defect, the cat will be replaced ONLY if an appropriate necropsy is
performed by a licensed veterinarian and a veterinarian’s certificate is
provided as proof of cause of death. A replacement will be made of a
cat of comparable quality and value, as available, at the discretion of the
Seller. NO CASH REFUNDS.
