Kitty Amour Health Guarantee

Kitty Amour is a PKD1, FIV, and FeLV free cattery.

To the best of the Seller’s knowledge, the kitten is the progeny of healthy animals.

This Health Guarantee is for congenital defects which are more commonly known as birth defects. Most are present at or near birth.

The Seller guarantees the kitten against life-threatening congenital defect(s) for five (5) years from the date of a signed contract. This is a limited guarantee, and the Seller must be notified, in writing, when the congenital defect is first detected.

This Health Guarantee is unenforceable five (5) years from the date a contract is signed.

Congenital defects are limited to the following:

  • Polycystic kidney disorder (PKD1),
  • cardiomyopathy,
  • entropion,
  • cataracts (cataracts may undergo spontaneous resorption within the first year [i.e., disappear]; if not, and if the retina is working,
    surgery may be needed.), degeneration of the retina,
  • cleft palates and cleft lips, megaesophagus,
  • portosystemic shunt (liver),
  • patent ductus arteriosus (PDA),
  • seborrhea oleosa,
  • amyloidosis,
  • mucopolysaccharidosis.

If a claim for any of the herein referenced congenital defects is made, written verification (on company letterhead) from a qualified, licensed veterinarian must be provided to Seller with a description of the kitten’s congenital defect and their opinion as to the seriousness of the defect.

The Seller reserves the right to have the kitten re-inspected by her veterinarian for confirmation of the defect before replacing the kitten.

In this event, the kitten will be replaced with a comparable replacement when one becomes available. Comparable replacement will be like age, sex, and color.

The Buyer is solely responsible for any delivery-related expenses.

The kitten covered in this Health Guarantee does not have to be deceased nor returned to Seller so that Buyer can make a claim for a congenital defect and receive a replacement kitten.

Kitty Amour will replace any kitten that dies from FIP within three (3) months from the date of possession, ONLY upon receipt of the appropriate necropsy report. If a kitten dies from FIP more than one hundred eighty (180) days (but less than one (1) year from the date of this Health Guarantee), a substantial discount will be offered on a new kitten.
