1.) It is the buyer’s responsibility to have this cat/kitten examined by a veterinarian within 72 hours after adoption. This is your health guarantee period. If this cat/kitten is found to have an untreatable or life threatening disease that is felt to have been contracted at the seller’s home (documentation required by a licensed Veterinarian). Seller will replace this cat/kitten of equal value at the Seller’s first opportunity. After 72 hours of the health guarantee period the seller cannot be held accountable for future of Felv/Fiv/Fip, and any other bacterial or viral infectious diseases, parasites, or fungus, due to the fact that these can be contracted anywhere in the environment after leaving the cattery and are not a result of genetics or breeding. Buyer accepts all responsibility for protection of the cat from said diseases, illnesses, parasites, and fungi. If the buyer chooses to vaccinate for the Feline Infectious Peritonitis ( FIP, Ringworm), the warranty is NULL and VOID. Also, the seller does not warranty the kitten/cat against any adverse reactions to future vaccinations.
2.) This cat/kitten is guaranteed against all heredity defects up to the age of one year. Should a hereditary defect appear within the first year, a Veterinarian must document it. The purchaser is obligated to immediately spay/neuter this individual. Upon suppling the seller with these documentation, seller will replace this cat/kitten with another of equal value at the seller’s first opportunity. Buyer understands that at no time for any reason will there be a monetary refund of any of the purchase price. It is recommended that the kitten/cat be quarantined for a period of one week before introduced to other cats in your household.
3.) The cat/kitten cannot be returned after the guarantee period has expired. It is the responsibility of the buyer to provide immediate veterinary care to any cat/kitten showing signs of illness or distress. Failure to do so will render any guarantee null and void. Except the spay/neuter is in force no matter what the condition or problem. By signing this contract, the Buyer is also signing permission for their veterinarian to disclose any and all veterinary information pertaining to this said cat/kitten and any and all information on cats/kittens living with said cat/kitten. The Seller can ask which clinic and fax them a copy of this agreement to gain access, if need be. All veterinary fees are the sole responsibility of the Buyer.
4.) The seller guarantees fertility in this breeding animal with the exception of problems caused by pyometria which the breeder has no control over. If this cat has not produced viable offspring by the age of 2 years, after being serviced by at least two proven studs or queens which ever the case, the Seller agrees to replace the cat with one of equal value upon proof of spay/neuter by a licensed veterinary at Seller’s first opportunity. Seller does have the right to attempt to breed the cat on a Sterling Bengal cat before a replacement, for proof of infertility.
5.) This cat is not guaranteed against cosmetic faults, i.e. tail fault or locket. A cosmetic fault does not preclude the cat from being bred as it is not a health issue. No Declawing of kitten/cat. Buyer does understand that Seller makes NO guarantees about achieving Championship titles.
6.) No breeder male or female from Sterling Bengals may be sold, placed, leased, loaned, traded, co-owned or given away to another breeder, or person unless written permission is received by the seller, Veronica Kraemer with her signature.

1.) A holding fee is placed to hold a cat/kitten for a buyer. At this time I am holding the kitten for you and no one else can purchase the said cat/kitten. All holding fees are non-refundable. The goal of our Cattery is to place our cat/kittens in loving homes in a timely manner so they may bond with their new family. If a cat/kitten is held for a Buyer, a change of mind can quite often jeopardize the chance of that particular kitten to be placed in a home while they are still of a desirable age. When the sale of the cat/kitten is consummated, the deposit shall be applied toward the balance owing on the purchase price. The balance is due prior to any pick up.
