  • If the cat/kitten is found to be medically deficient by a licensed veterinarian with an untreatable or life threatening problem, it must be reported to the Breeder immediately. Breeder reserves the right to have the case reviewed by Breeder’s veterinarian. At Breeders discretion, upon the return of the cat/kitten and all medical documentation including but not limited to x-rays, medical records and written veterinary certification of medical condition, a replacement cat/kitten of equal value or a refund of the purchase price will be made.

  • If no replacement is available at that time, Breeder will have 6 months to furnish a replacement. The cat/kitten cannot be returned after the guarantee period (aforementioned 3 days) has expired and/or if the cat/kitten has been exposed to another animal or been allowed to go outdoors.

Under no circumstances is a cat/kitten to be destroyed prior to notification by the Purchaser to the Breeder.

  • If a cat/kitten dies within the first year, despite medical treatment, compensation will be made only if a licensed veterinarian certifies the cause of death to be a fatal congenital defect.

Claims are subject to verification by Breeder’s veterinarian.

  • Under no circumstances shall the Breeder’s liability exceed replacement of the cat/kitten or refund of the purchase price.
