Health Guarantee & Contract Terms
Please initial each section to indicate that you have read it and agree to it.
___ * Breeder guarantees the health of the above mentioned kitten/cat for 3 days from the date of delivery. Buyer is to have this kitten/cat examined within 3 days by a licensed veterinarian. Failure to do so will result in this health agreement being null and void. Buyer should be aware that during times of stress, such as moving to a new home, being shipped by plane, or meeting new people and animals, cats can exhibit a variety of symptoms, such as sneezing, watery eyes, runny nose, lack of appetite, constipation, or diarrhea. This is completely normal and usually of short duration.
___ * Buyer is responsible for all veterinary costs once he/she takes ownership of the kitten/cat, unless this kitten/cat is found to be ill within the above mentioned 3 day time frame. If this kitten/cat is found to be in ill health within the first 3 days, breeder will pay reasonable fees for medication and/or treatment.
____* This kitten/cat is guaranteed against genetic defects. If the cat dies an untimely death within the first year of ownership due to a genetic defect, breeder agrees to replace this kitten/cat with a kitten of equal value at such time as one becomes available. Buyer must provide proof from a licensed vet that the death was due to a genetic defect.
____ * Open communication shall be maintained between and by both the buyer and breeder before and after the kitten/cat goes to its new home and for its entire lifetime as needed.
____ * Buyer is responsible and agrees to provide this kitten/cat with proper health care both in the home and through veterinary well checks and prompt emergency care if/when needed.
___ * Buyer agrees that if for any reason they cannot keep the kitten/cat that they must contact the breeder, for 1st option on taking this kitten /cat back. Under no circumstances will this cat/kitten ever be abandoned, given to any pet shop, humane society, pound, shelter, research facility, or euthanized for behavioral problems.
____ * If this kitten/cat is found to be malnourished, abused, neglected, or unattended outdoors, the buyer will surrender this kitten/cat to this breeder unconditionally.
____ * Buyer promises that this cat/kitten will be an INDOOR ONLY pet.
____ * Buyer agrees that the cat/kitten will NEVER BE DECLAWED. All guarantees are voided if the kitten/cat is declawed.
____ * Buyer agrees not to permit this kitten/cat to be given the FIP (Feline Infectious Peritontis)
vaccination. Recent reports show this vaccine is ineffective and may actually predispose your pet to the disease. FIP is currently under research and hopefully an effective vaccine and/or cure will be developed soon.
____ * Buyer understands that Feline Infectious Peritontis (FIP) is a viral disease of cats caused by certain strains of a virus called the feline coronavirus. The coronavirus is as common in cats as the common cold is in humans and normally not dangerous at all. Cats infected with coronavirus generally do not show any symptoms and it resolves itself just like the common cold. However, in a small percentage of cats infected with the coronavirus, either by mutation or an anomaly of the immune response, the infection progresses into clinical FIP. Once a cat develops clinical FIP the disease is progressive and almost always fatal. There is no definitive tool for detecting FIP in live cats at this time and there is no cure. Just because a cat tests positive for coronavirus it does not mean that it has or ever will develop FIP. Because the coronavirus is so prevalent in domestic cats it is impossible to guarantee against it or FIP. HOWEVER, as a courtesy the breeder will cover your new kitten for two months from the date of delivery, against death due to FIP if the diagnosis is confirmed by a licensed vet by necropsy or written statement that the cat exhibited all signs and symptoms of a death due to FIP. In this unfortunate event the breeder agrees to replace this kitten/cat with a kitten of equal value at such time as one becomes available.
____ * As a courtesy to you, your new kitten will be registered with CFF for you. See instructions at the end of this contract for providing name choices
Cancelations and Refunds
____ * The breeder reserves the right to cancel the sale for any reason if she feels it is in the best interest of the kitten. If the breeder cancels a sale a full refund of all payments made to that point will be given.
___ * The breeder reserves the right to cancel a sale if the balance is not paid in full by the "balance due date" (which is one week prior to the alter date of the kitten.) If the breeder decides to take this course of action, all payments made prior to that date, with the exception of the non-refundable deposit, will be refunded.
____ * If the buyer cancels the sale prior to the "balance due date," (which is one week prior to the alter date of the kitten) the breeder will refund all payments made up to that point with the exception of the non-refundable deposit.
____ * If the buyer cancels a sale on or after the "balance due date," (which is one week prior to the alter date of the kitten) a refund will be given up to the amount of the payments made up to that point (minus the non-refundable deposit) at such time as, and provided that the kitten can be resold at price covering that amount. If the kitten CANNOT be resold at a price that will cover that amount a refund will be given in the amount that the kitten is resold at once the kitten has resold.
____ * Fees paid for delivery by vehicle will be refunded in full if the delivery is cancelled prior to the delivery date.
____* All fees paid for shipping by air transport either by the breeder or pet nanny services will be non-refundable or transferable once the airline reservation has been made. If the cancellation is made prior to the airline booking all but a $50 service fee will be refunded.

Please provide two name choices for your new kitten's official registered name. The name may not be the same as any other Blue Skies cat, so if the first name is taken the second name will be used. TICA will make this determination. The full name may not exceed 35 letters and spaces. Punctuation of any kind is not allowed. Your name, address, and city are not allowed in the name. The use of the word "of" is not allowed unless the name of a TICA registered cattery name belonging to you follows it. The name "Blueskies" is automatically used as the first part of the name leaving you 25 letters and spaces for your kitten's name. The more unique the name or spelling, the more likely your first choice will be allowed. The second choice does not need to be drastically different. A change in spelling or addition of a word (like Princess or Little) may be all it takes. Remember this will be your cat's official registered name. You may call the cat whatever you like as a nickname.

2nd choice: BLUESKIES __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __
