Should this kitten die before the age of 2 yrs. as a result of a congenital defect not known at time of sale, said kitten will be replaced with kitten of same quality only if an appropriate necropsy is performed by a licensed veterinarian and a vet’s certificate is provided showing exact proof of the cause of death.

All veterinary bills are the responsibility of the Buyer. Under no circumstances is this cat to be destroyed prior to notification by the Buyer to the Breeder. The corona virus is very common in cattery situations as well as in multi-cat households, thus Breeder cannot guarantee against FIP. No cash refunds.
