Purrheart Himalayans (“Purrheart”) guarantees that the kitten named above is free of the Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) at the time of purchase. The kitten is also guaranteed to be free of intestinal parasites and will have received kitten’s first vaccination and deworming. It is Buyer’s responsibility to provide all necessary vaccinations and adequate health care for the life of kitten. If Buyer fails to have the vaccinations completed at any stage of kitten’s life or any evidence of abuse, neglect or mishandling is evident, then this Contract will be immediately null and void and Purrheart will be released from any and all responsibility for replacement of kitten. A copy of the kitten’s health record will be given to the buyer at the time of purchase. In addition, Purrheart can not warranty this kitten against any adverse reactions to future vaccinations.
Before kitten is picked up to go to his/her new family it will be examined by my veterinarian. To the best of Purrheart’s knowledge, Buyer is receiving a healthy kitten. In order to make any claim pursuant to this Contract, Buyer must have Buyer’s licensed veterinarian examine kitten at Buyer’s expense within five (5) days of receiving kitten. Buyer understands and agrees that failure to have kitten examined by a licensed veterinarian within five days of receiving kitten will make any and all health guarantees in this Contract null and void.
If Buyer’s licensed veterinarian finds the kitten to have a serious illness or deformity, a written statement by the veterinarian on his/her letterhead identifying the problem must be given to Purrheart within the five (5) day time limit stated above. The kitten may then be returned to Purrheart at the Buyer’s expense for a kitten of similar color and quality. NO CASH WILL BE REFUNDED. Serious illness means a shortened or painful lifespan. Purrheart is not responsible for the costs of delivering a replacement kitten. Buyer will make all arrangements pick-up new kitten.
This guarantee does NOT include minor nuisances such as loose stool, any type of allergies, fungus or upper respiratory infections. A minor upper respiratory infection or fungus can occur as a result of the stress of being relocated into a new home and Purrheart can not guarantee that this will not happen. However, to the best of Purhheart’s knowledge, none of these are present at the time of pickup/delivery.
Please note that during times of stress, such as going to a new home, kittens can exhibit temporary signs of illness which may include sneezing, runny eyes and nose, diarrhea, vomiting and or constipation. To help reduce these issues, Purrheart will provide dry and wet food that kitten has been eating. If Buyer decides to change the kitten’s diet, Buyer understands this can cause stress on kitten and kitten may experience diarrhea, constipation or vomiting. To limit this possibility, Buyer agrees to mix the dry food provided by Purrheart with the new food Buyer wishes to feed kitten. Buyer agrees to provide free feeding of dry food and fresh water at all times.
Buyer is responsible for all veterinary related expenses once the kitten is released from Purrheart. This includes but is not limited to exams, office visits, lab tests, vaccinations, medications, surgery or time off from work. No medical care is authorized or will be paid for by Purrheart. By signing this Agreement, Buyer is accepting these terms.
If the above named kitten dies within one (1) year of the date of purchase due to hereditary or congenital defects, Purrheart will replace the kitten with one of similar quality. THERE WILL BE NO CASH REFUNDS. To determine if the cat’s death has been caused by a congenital or hereditary defect, Purrheart must receive proof of the defect in the form of a complete necropsy report, completed by a licensed veterinarian. Purrheart is not responsible for costs related to the necropsy. If after reviewing the findings by Purrheart’s veterinarian and it is determined the death of kitten was under warranty, a replacement kitten of equal value will be offered as soon as possible.
Purrheart does not warrant against FIP. FIP comes from a mutation of a feline intestinal virus (FECV) and no one can pinpoint when or where a cat was exposed to the virus and at what point it mutated into FIP. Some cats can be exposed to FECV and never develop FIP. The current means of testing for FIP has a high rate of false positives. Also, if you vaccinate your kitten against FIP, the test for FIP will always come back as positive even though your kitten may not actually have the disease. If you choose to vaccinate your kitten against FIPV, this guarantee is void.
Kittens Purchased for Showing. Purrheart does not guarantee “show quality”. It is up to purchaser to perform their own due diligence before purchasing kitten regarding acceptable standards for showing.
Kittens Purchased for Breeding. Breeding rights purchased: __________. If breeding rights were purchased Purrheart does not guarantee that kitten will be successful in producing future litters of kittens. If breeding rights were not purchased and Buyer breeds kitten, Purrheart will vigorously pursue Buyer in Marion County Circuit Court for Breach of Contract and will seek money damages of all kittens sold and produced by Buyer and reimbursement of Purrheart’s attorney fees and costs.
It is agreed that this is an “As Is” sale, subject only to the limited guarantees outlined above which is the final agreement of all parties. By signing below, you acknowledge that you have read this Contract in its entirety and agree to all of its requirements, stipulations and terms thereof, and that you have received a copy of this Contract for your records.
