The seller guarantees the kitten to be in good health at the time of purchase for a period of 72 hours. It will be the responsibility of the purchaser to have the kitten examined by a veterinarian within 72 hours. Within that 72 hours period, if found to be seriously medically deficient, the seller will take the kitten back and refund payment, less the deposit and any shipping charges, under the following conditions: the seller is provided with proper documentation, from a licensed veterinarian, stating the medical issue and that the cat is seriously medically deficient; a second examination by a veterinarian of the seller’s choice corroborates these claims. After the 72 hours period, the seller can no longer guarantee the kittens/cats health (except for birth defects), against respiratory diseases, fleas, ringworms or any nuisance disease.
Seller assumes no liability or responsibility for any veterinary care for this cat after the purchaser takes possession of the cat/kitten. Under no circumstances will the seller be responsible for any veterinary bills incurred by the purchaser.
This cat/kitten is being sold with no breeding rights and on a spay/neuter agreement.
