HEALTH GUARANTEE Sphynxcraft Cats guarantees the kitten/cat to be in good health at the time of purchase for a period of 48 hours. Feline health records may be provided. All kittens/cats are vaccinated, dewormed, and spayed/neutered prior to purchase. It is the responsibility of the Purchaser to have the kitten/cat examined by a veterinarian within 48 hours. Within that 48 hours if the kitten/cat is found to be seriously medically deficient, Sphynxcraft Cats will take the kitten/cat back with proper documentation from a licensed Veterinarian as to the medical issue. After the 48 hour period, the Seller can no longer guarantee the kitten/cat’s health, except for birth defects. The Seller assumes no liability or responsibility for any veterinary care for this kitten/cat after the buyer takes possession of said kitten/cat. Under no circumstances will Sphynxcraft Cats be responsible for any veterinary bills incurred by the buyer. This kitten/cat is not guaranteed against respiratory disease, fleas, ringworm or any nuisance disease. Sphynxcraft Cats guarantees the kittens against lethal genetic or hereditary/congenital defects, for one year following the date of purchase. Cats are guaranteed for a six month period depending on age. If during this period the kitten/cat should die or have to be destroyed due to a genetic or congenital disease, the Purchaser must provide a necropsy by a licensed impartial Veterinary Pathologist stating the cause of death is unquestionably a genetic or congenital defect. Sphynxcraft Cats will replace the kitten/cat with another of the Buyer’s choice at their earliest convenience. No kitten or cat is to be destroyed without notification to Sphynxcraft Cats. Our cats are not vaccinated for FIP and FELV as these vaccincations can depress the immune system. If vaccinated following purchase, the contract is void.
This kitten/cat will be kept INDOORS and not allowed to roam outdoors. The Purchaser agrees that this kitten/cat may not be declawed. Declawing voids the contract. The new kitten/cat should he confined to a private room, with plenty of toys and human contact until accustomed to their new surroundings. It is recommended that the kitten/cat remain on the same diet it is accustomed to, and any changes the Purchaser wishes to make, be gradual as abrupt change of diet can cause diarrhea and stomach upset. It is understood that with the Sphynx breed, hairlessness will vary between individual kittens/cats due to hormones, climate and genetics. It is important for the Purchaser to understand it is impossible to guarantee hairlessness for the life of the cat. It is possible for the kitten/cat to develop some hair as it grows older. This hair is specific to the tail, feet and ears.
If at any time during the life of the said kitten/cat, there is a need to re- home, the Seller should be notified immediately and have first refusal. No money shall be returned to the Purchaser for the return of the kitten/cat. The Purchaser agrees that under no circumstances will the kitten/cat ever be sold, leased, given away, abandoned, to an animal shelter, pet store, or similar organization, research laboratory or similar facility, institution or person. The sole exception is in the event of re-homing as agreed to by the parties with full disclosure of all details and of possible sale and particulars of new owner. This is to avoid any of our kittens/cats ending up in a home that is not ideal. We feel a lifelong commitment to our cats and provide Breeder support for life.
The Purchaser agrees to allow contact information to be provided to Royal Canin and to receive special offers from the company as part of the Breeder’s program. The Purchaser agrees to allow the Seller to announce the purchase/adoption of a Sphynxcraft Cat, as agreed upon by the parties, for the promotion of Sphynxcraft Cattery.
