               Many things happen in life for which we cannot or did not Plan. From Natural Disasters to Family issues,
              as simple as a child born with Asthma or as devastating as the loss of health, home or life. We will not
              criticise or judge. We would only be grateful that in adversity you did what was best for your fur child by
              calling Us that we might welcome home our own. No matter why the sacrifice, wouldn't it ease your mind
              to KNOW your fuzzyone went home to safe harbor, & was loved.

Buyer understands that they are buying an indoor-only pedigreed cat and they will not allow this cat outdoors except in a carrier, on a
lead or leash or in a fully enclosed outdoor run for their cat’s protection, safety and well-being.

That this Cat/Kitten will receive frequent and kind human attention. Will  be given the love, care, concern and respect due living being,
and will not be regularly caged within the confines of the purchasers home.

That this cat/kitten will NEVER be de-clawed. Purchaser understands that this is mutilation and a cruelty that is likely to alter this
cat/kittens personality and health.  Should Cat/Kitten be found to have been declawed by the Purchaser the Breeder reserves the right
to, without notice or remuneration, remove said cat or kitten and find it a more loving home.     

Some things we take very seriously. If I ever find out you did this..I'm coming to reclaim

Kitten/Cat will be immunized annually for the feline upper respiratory illnesses (rhinotracheitis, panleukopenia pneumonitis and calici
virus), and will not be allowed to harbor parasites. Buyer agrees to have the cat examined annually by a licensed veterinarian to
ensure the cat’s health and well being.
  Breeder does not recommend vaccinating the kitten/cat for Feline Leukemia (FeLV) or  Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP).
If the Buyer opts to vaccinate their cat with these vaccines and if the cat should subsequently develop FIP, the Breeder will not replace
the kitten.  The reason for this the Breeder feels that, based on a study done at UC Davis, that these vaccines may cause FIP
development.  Additionally and if possible, if and when Buyer is vaccinating the cat for rabies, Buyer should request that the
veterinarian use the rabies vaccine with the least reactionary adjuvant to further decrease the possibility of a vaccine site sarcoma.    
This is just common sense. Even indoor cats need their hearts listened to and their teeth checked once a

Purchaser will be alert to signs of distress and cat will not be denied prompt veterinary attention should it at any point in its life appear
ill or injured.

This cat is not being purchased for Resale or Breeding.  If not altered at the time of sale to neuter the cat/kitten before 8 months of  
age.   Upon Breeders receipt of veterinarian's verification of altering, the Buyer will be provided registration papers and signed
 This is another one of those things. We would not contribute numbers to suffer the cruel fate of unloved and
unwanted pets, the product of indiscriminate, careless, or unauthorized breeding.

To never leave the cat/kitten alone for more than 24 hours without making arrangement for a responsible person to provide it with
fresh food and water, clean litter and loving companionship.

10) To communicate with the Breeder at least once a year, hopefully with pictures and data. That we may track the
growth and health of our placed kittens for our files. To notify the Breeder of change of address, phone number or
Truly we would love to hear of their developed purrsonalities. To see their stages of growth, how they
turned out, and add photos of Then & Now to our site.
