The seller will provide purchaser with vaccination record. The seller guarantees the kitten to be in good health at the time of purchase. It will be the responsibility of the purchaser to have the kitten examined by a veterinarian. The seller guarantees the cat against lethal genetic or congenital defects for 6 months following the date of purchase. If, during these 6 months, the cat should die or have to be put down due to a genetic or congenital defect, the seller will replace the cat/kitten with a cat/kitten at the seller’s earliest convenience, should the following conditions be met: the purchaser provides the seller with a necropsy by a licensed impartial Veterinary Pathologist, at the purchaser’s expense, stating that the cause of death is unquestionably a genetic or congenital defect; a second examination by a veterinarian of the seller’s choice corroborates these claims. Seller assumes no liability or responsibility for any veterinary care for this cat after the purchaser takes possession of said cat. Under no circumstances will the seller be responsible for any veterinary bills incurred by the purchaser.
This cat is being sold with no breeding rights and on a spay/neuter agreement.
Initial The buyer agrees that the kitten will be spayed/neutered by the time the kitten reaches five lbs. or six months of age, whichever comes first, at buyer’s expense. Within three months of receiving the kitten, purchaser will provide the seller with either documentation of the spay/neuter appointment or the veterinarian’s guarantee that the appointment exists and will be carried out. Proof (e.g., veterinary bill, phone call from veterinarian) that the cat has been sterilized must be provided before the cat reaches six months of age. If the cat is not spayed/neutered by five lbs. or six months of age and/or proof of sterilization is not provided, seller will enforce breach of contract for the maximum dollar amount.
Treatment of Cat
