Our kittens come to you with up to date vaccinations and wormed and in good health at time of sale, it will have been examined at least twice and given a thorough health check by our veterinarian.
If the kitten is found to be in unsound health by a licensed veterinarian within 72 hours of leaving the breeders premises the kitten/cat shall be returned and the buyer may request a replacement with another kitten/cat of equal quality and value. This guarantee is valid provided there has been no contact with other cats and kept on the same diet. If there is a minor problem and you choose to have it attended to by your Vet, then that will be at your expense. For the protection of the breeder's resident cattery population, a portion of the purchase price will be retained for FeLV, FIP and FIV testing if the kitten is returned. All return shipping related expenses are the responsibility of the purchaser. Once the cat/kitten leaves the possession of the breeder the breeder cannot be held responsible for any veterinarian bills or charges incurred for the cat/kitten. ( International buyers please note that due to the strict quarantine laws kittens cannot be returned )
If you have other cats, I also suggest you place the new arrival in quarantine during this time and follow the advice of your own Veterinarian in regard to the length of the quarantine period. You, or your Veterinarian, shall report to the Breeder any medical problem within the guarantee period. Should the cat/kitten die within six (6) months as a direct result of an unknown (at the time of sale) congenital birth defect, the said cat/kitten will be replaced with a cat/kitten of comparable quality and value when available, only if an appropriate autopsy is performed by a licensed Veterinarian and a Veterinarian's certificate is provided as proof of cause of death. Trauma, abuse or neglect will void the guarantee. There are no guarantees against cosmetic defects such as lockets or tail faults that may occur after the kitten/cat has been shipped.
Undesirable behaviour issues (spraying, inappropriate urination, scratching furniture, etc…) developing once the kitten has been turned over to the purchaser. The seller will happily give you advice to modify any behavioural issues. Under no circumstance is a cat or kitten to be destroyed prior to notification by the Buyer to the Breeder. Any cat/kitten for which the Buyer expects replacement must be returned to the Breeder (at the Buyer's expense) so that identity of the cat/kitten can be verified. "Unsound health" shall be defined as any condition which is "life threatening or "incurable" and shall not include curable conditions or infections such as colds, virus, bacterial infections or skin rashes.
