Purchases agrees to the following conditions of sale:

The buyer accepts full responsibility for this kitten/cat and will provide for its health needs, financial liabilities, and well being once in its new home.  The buyer agrees that the cat will always receive prompt medical attention.  The seller is not responsible for any veterinarian expenses incurred by the purchase of this cat once the cat has left the premises.  

The cat will be strictly an indoor cat.  It will never be allowed to roam outdoors without the owner being present.

If the cat is ever found to be neglected for any reasonable amount of time, the buyer agrees to surrender the cat unconditionally.

The seller will provide the buyer with the feline registration blue slip, will deworm, and give the first set of shots prior to or at delivery.  Flea preventative will also be applied.

Seller guarantees the feline against any fatal genetic defects for a period of 1 year.  Feline will be replaced with a comparable kitten if documented proof of the death being caused by a fatal genetic defect is provided by a licensed vet in writing.  This means an autopsy will most likely be required to determine cause of death.   Shipping will be the sole responsibility of the buyer.

Buyer agrees to have the feline examined at least once a year for a health check and to receive the normal vaccinations recommended.  The buyer may choose whether or not to administer the FIP and feline leukemia vaccination.

Seller assumes no responsibility or liability of the feline after leaving the premises of the cattery due to landlord’s disapproval, vet or medical expenses, mortality due to negligence, accidents, feline injections, allergy to animal or for damages caused by feline.

No guarantee is given on the final appearance or adult disposition.

Seller warrants the feline is in good health and free of parasites upon delivery of the feline.  Buyer is REQUIRED to have the kitten/cat examined by a licensed vet at their sole expense within 3 business days of pick up or receipt of the feline for the health guarantee to be fulfilled.  Failure to do so will make the health guarantee null and void.  If the vet exam reveals a serious or life-threatening illness, the buyer must notify the seller within 24 hours of the visit and provide written documentation from the vet to the seller.  Feline may be exchanged if a serious, life threatening documented illness is found by the vet.  All treatable illnesses will be required to be treated and are not subject to exchange.  Proof of the vet visit is required in writing to be sent to the breeder within 10 business days of purchase.  Failure to do so negates the health guarantee completely. _________________

Buyer agrees there are common infections that cats are often subject to such as FIP and herpes which can be contracted at any point in time.  Since vaccinations are not 100% effective, some viruses may occur even with vaccinations.  We separate all mothers into our home for a period of at least 4 weeks after birth to avoid any possible exposure, and begin a shot regimen at 8 weeks of age.  However, because it is virtually impossible to prevent viruses, colds, and such, we do not warrant against viral infection past the arrival date and initial vet exam within the first three days of your kitten’s arrival.  Both parents of the kitten have been tested negative for PKD, FIV, and FeLV.  All kittens are guaranteed against PKD, FIV, and FeLV.  Buyer has 72 hours to have the kitten retested against those diseases.  Failure to do so will negate any responsibility of the seller for said diseases.  Seller is not responsible for any infections and common cat maladies contracted once the cat leaves the cattery.  _____________________________

Ringworm is a very common fungal infection that is easily spread in felines.   Although we have never had a single case of ringworm, we do not cover ringworm in our health guarantee other than on the arrival date.  The kitten is guaranteed to be free of ringworm on the delivery date.  Ringworm is easily influenced by living conditions and is greatly increased if one is showing cats.  We do not take our cats out to shows and have very limited visits to the cattery.  We require shoe removal and hand washing prior to visits.  ____________________ buyer initials

Respiratory illnesses: Breathing difficulties in cats can be caused by a variety of things, some more serious than others.  Cats with shorter muzzles, such as Persians, often have restricted nasal passages and this can cause respiratory infections and breathing problems during exercise and hot humid weather.  We choose our cats carefully and try to stay away from this, but from time to time, it may show up.  The flat faced nature of the Persian makes respiratory problems more likely and because of this we cannot be responsible for any respiratory or breathing problems that might arise.  Because of the Persian influence, it may occur in Napoleons, although it is very unlikely to due to the different facial structure of the napoleon.  Respiratory infections and sneezing or snorting may occur from time to time.  Weeping eyes are also a common issue with Persians and sometimes a napoleon.   We do not guarantee against weeping eyes as well as it is related to facial structure of the breed.  Please consult a vet should any issues arise.  ___________________________________buyer signature

Buyer agrees to pay the balance of feline purchase price prior to pickup or delivery.  Balances paid at pick up MUST BE IN CASH.  Balances paid prior to shipment or pickup using a check must be made at least 2 weeks prior to scheduled delivery date to allow for check clearance.  Ne felines will be released until all balances are paid in full.

Return shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer.  If a cat is returned, the next available kitten of equal quality will be offered to the buyer as replacement.  No cash refunds will be given.  Prior to any replacement being made, all papers issued with the feline must be returned, properly signed, transferring ownership back to the breeder.  The returning kitten will be isolated for a period of 30 days from all cats prior to testing.  A vet exam will then be instituted.  If the kitten/cat has been exposed to other cats not raised and bred by Windysweptt and found to have been exposed to disease through the vet testing while in your care, no replacement will be given.

Breeding rights can be purchased on an individual basis.  The cat may NOT be leased, loaned, resold, or rehomed in any manner without prior consent from the breeder.  Resale rights are  NOT included in the sale and the cat must be offered back to the breeder  prior to spaying or neutering free of charge. If the breeder does not want to accept the cat back, permission may be given in writing for the resale of the cat. Without written consent, the cat may not be rehomed or sold.  Any cat/kitten found to be in violation will be claimed as Windysweptt exclusive property.  This contract is binding via CFA arbitration. _________ buyer initials
