Balance of purchase price to be paid before delivery of the kitten. If shipping is
required, Buyer is responsible for all shipping fees (airline fees, appropriate
carrier, health certificate) which will be no less than $300. Delivery costs will be
negotiable between Buyer and Seller if transporting by car. Failure to pay in full
for the kitten and shipping costs will result in loss of deposit by Buyer and
Seller shall then be free to place the kitten with another buyer.

The kitten described above is being sold as a pet (not for breeding or showing)
and the following consideration:

  1. Buyer accepts the responsibility of caring for the kitten and will provide
    properly for its welfare. Buyer agrees to keep the kitten indoors in a
    clean and pleasant environment, uncaged and with proper nutrition,
    health care, and companionship.
  2. Buyer agrees that this kitten was purchased as a pet(not for breeding or
    showing), and unless altered before sale, must be spayed or neutered
    before the age of six months. Buyer assures and guarantees that this
    kitten will not be used for breeding or stud. Registration papers will be
    held until Buyer has provided Seller with a valid statement of
    spay/neuter signed by a licensed veterinarian. Seller agrees to sign
    kitten's registration papers over to the Buyer within 30 days of receiving
    the appropriate documentation. If the buyer intentionally or unintentionally                                                                                   produces a litter of kittens with this cat, they agree to pay a $5000 fine per                                                                                      incident to the Breeder for breech of contract and they must immediately                                                                                                  spay and neuter all offspring.
  3. Health Guarantee: This kitten is guaranteed of sound health upon
    delivery or arrival, and for a period of 72 hours thereafter if vetted within
    that time. Failure to have the animal checked by a licensed veterinarian
    within 72 hours will void any guarantee. It is recommended that the new
    kitten be quarantined during that 72-hour period. If found to be
    medically deficient with an untreatable or life-threatening problem, this
    must be reported to the Seller immediately. If professional medical care
    is given to the kitten during the 72-hour period, the Buyer shall be
    responsible for all veterinary and professional expenses incurred on
    behalf of the kitten. The Seller shall at no time and under no
    circumstances be liable for more that the replacement of the kitten.
    Upon its return, it will be replaced with another kitten of equal value. The
    Seller reserves the right to return a cash refund. If no replacement is
    available at the time of return, Seller will have up to one year to furnish a
    comparable kitten. The kitten cannot be returned for compensation after
    the guaranteed period has expired and/or it has been exposed to
    another cat. Seller will not honor any health guarantee if the kitten dies
    of a virus from contact with another animal not bred at this Cattery. The
    buyer agrees to provide immediate veterinary care to this kitten if it
    shows signs of distress, illness, or injury. Failure to do so will render
    the guarantee null and void. If the kitten dies within the guarantee
    period, despite medical treatment, compensation will be made ONLY if
    a licensed veterinarian certifies the cause of death. When the kitten
    arrives at your home he/she will have been inoculated at least once for
    (1) Panleukopenia, (2) Viral Rhinotracheitis, (3) Calicivirus. Unless you pick                                                                                                  up the kitten prior to 12 weeks, then it will have not received Panleukopenia.                                                                                           Upon buyer's first veterinarian visit it is suggested that the buyer discuss the
    FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus) and FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis)
    vaccines with their veterinarian and proceed according to the
    veterinarian's suggestion at that time.
  4. The kitten is guaranteed against congenital defects for TWO YEARS only
  5. if the kitten is on the Life's Abundance system (food, treats, vitamins)
  6. the entire time. This must be purchased through the link on my page or
  7. by visiting www.pethealthatyourdoor.com . Should the animal die within
  8. that time as a direct result of a congenital defect, the cat will be replaced
  9. ONLY if an appropriate necropsy is performed by a licensed veterinarian
  10. and a veterinarian's certificate is provided as proof of cause of death. A
  11. replacement will be made of a cat of comparable quality and value, as
  12. available, at the discretion of the Seller. NO CASH REFUNDS.
  13. The buyer agrees that this cat will at no time be sold, leased, or given to
    any pet shop, animal dealer, animal research facility, animal shelter or
    to anyone who has ever been convicted of neglect of or cruelty to an
    animal, nor shall it be abandoned. It is the intention of the Seller that the
    Buyer be a permanent placement. If at any time the Buyer becomes
    unable to care for the kitten, Seller is given the right of first refusal. If the
    Seller does not receive the kitten, it is the responsibility of the Buyer to
    place the kitten in a home that meets the same conditions as stated in
    this contract.

Any legal action which may arise under the terms of this contract will be brought
in Douglas County in the state of Nebraska. Buyer shall be liable for any court
costs and related charges including attorney's fees associated with Seller
enforcing the terms of this contract. This agreement is the entire agreement
between parties.
