CONDITIONS OF SALE:
1. The Breeder gives one-year genetic guaranty from the day the kitten is born. Upon receipt of written statement from the examining veterinarian accompanied by all veterinary documentation and tests/lab results, which support the diagnosis, and the diagnosis verified by an independent veterinarian that there’s genetic health problem, the breeder will replace with kitten from the next available litter of equal value. Any presence of actual or possible virus, bacteria, or fungus in cat’s body (FVR, FeCoV, FIP, etc.) does not indicate and cannot determine genetic origination of the disease or genetic disorder. These microorganisms can be obtained from anywhere and at any time.
2. Immunization with killed virus and/or killed bacteria is allowed if done by accredited veterinarian only. Breeder is not responsible for side effects caused by feline or other vaccine including overvaccination. If the kitten administered with FeLV, FIV, FIP, Ringworm, Hookworm or any modified live virus vaccines (MLV) will void all health and genetic guarantees since cats can develop severe illnesses and serious side effects from administering MLV.
3. The kitten will be vaccinated by the age with internal and external preventative parasite treatment by the time the kitten is ready for pick-up/delivery.

It is suggested that the buyer will take the kitten/cat to their veterinarian (at Buyer’s expense) within the first three days after receiving the kitten from the breeder for their satisfaction and protection.
