By paying the deposit, the Client agrees to the terms of sale and the contract. The contract is posted on our website. The contract can only be changed by the Seller and only if there are special reasons for this.

The $ 260 deposit is not refundable if the client refuses the kitten or for any reason and cannot pick it up at the age of 12 to 15 weeks old.

If the Client cannot pick up the kitten after 15 weeks old, then the Client is obliged to pay $ 20 for every day of the kitten's stay in the cattery.

We return the deposit only when we decide to refuse to sell the kitten to our clients. We reserve the right not to explain the reason.

The buyer agrees to pay the rest of the amount when he/she picks up the kitten from the cattery. If the kitten is transported by courier, the Buyer undertakes to pay for the kitten two weeks before transportation.

  • This cat/kitten is purchased as a pet. Not for breeding.
    Seller recommends that Purchaser takes this cat/kitten to a licensed veterinarian within seven days of receipt for their own satisfaction of health.

  • Health Guarantee:
    Seller warrants that this cat/kitten is presented in sound health and not harboring any diseases or parasites
    This kitten is guaranteed to be in good health upon delivery or arrival and for a period of 14 (fourteen) days thereafter if it is quarantined from other pets and seen by a licensed vet within that time. If found to be medically unsound with a serious or life-threatening congenital condition, the Breeder/Seller must be notified with documentation from a licensed vet and the kitten will be replaced with another kitten of comparable quality and value, if available. The Breeder/Seller reserves the right to substitute a cash refund. This health guarantee will be waived if the kitten dies of a virus from contact with other animals not bred by the Shining Blue Cats Cattery. This guarantee of health is void if the Purchaser has the kitten vaccinated for FIV or FIP, Feline Leukemia in the first year of his/her life. These vaccines are very stressful to the immune system and are not necessary for the continued health of an indoor-only kitten that doesn’t have repeated contact with other cats.

  • Shining Blue Cats Cattery guarantees against congenital diseases for the period of one year from the date of purchase. Kittens who decease within one year after purchase as a clear outcome of congenital disease will be replaced should the congenital disease as a cause of death be confirmed by an autopsy performed by a licensed veterinarian (microchip indication is required). Shining Blue Cats Cattery does not extend this policy to cats diagnosed with a genetic disease, feline infectious peritonitis (FIP), feline leukemia virus (FeLV), and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV)

  • A replacement will be made of a kitten of comparable quality and value as available, at the discretion of the Breeder/Seller. The Breeder/Seller reserves the right to substitute a cash refund of sale price only. The owner pays for transportation.

  • If a kitten dies while in possession of Breeder, the kitten will be replaced as soon as possible. If Purchaser rejects all kittens offered up to a year from the contract, the purchase price that was paid will not be returned and the contract becomes null and void.

  • Seller does not accept the responsibility of any vet bills unless written authorization states such.

  • Cats/kittens purchased as household pets if not coming spayed or neutered must be spayed or neutered by the Purchaser by the age of six months. Purchaser agrees to refrain from declawing said cat/kitten, as it is inhumane and considered to be amputation. Purchaser agrees to care for this cat/kitten by providing adequate indoor facilities, keeping the cat/kitten indoors, maintaining proper nutrition, getting the cat/kitten normal yearly inoculations as recommended by a licensed veterinarian, and if deemed necessary, prompt medical attention. Purchaser agrees that this cat/kitten will never be given or sold to any research laboratory, humane society, or similar facilities, nor sold to a third party.

  • Purchaser agrees that any violation of the terms of this contract may result in the surrender of said cat/kitten, any registration/pedigree papers, to expect no reimbursement of the purchase price, deposit, or expenses incurred, and Purchaser may be subject to monetary damages to Seller.

  • If for any reason the Buyer cannot keep the kitten, the kitten must be returned to Shining BlueCat's. If the kitten is ever returned or surrendered back to the Seller for any reason,  except problems covered with the Health Guarantee, once returned, NO refunds will be given to Buyer.

  • The cattery has the right to refuse to sell you a kitten at any time. We are also not obliged to tell you the reason for refusal for ethical reasons. If the cattery refuses to sell you a kitten, then your $ 250 deposit is fully refunded.

Very important

We do not guarantee our kittens for communicable diseases once they leave our home. They are much like small human children and if they come within contact they will catch it. We do offer replacement kitties for congenital or genetic life-threatening birth defects, for example, Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, a heart defect (aka HCM) during your kitten first 6  months of life. We also can not guarantee your kitten's health if you make changes to our feeding recommendations. Please use the foods we recommend.
We strive for breeding good health into our bloodlines and do the best we possibly can, but circumstances sometimes are beyond our control. We firmly believe in only using out cross-breeding and the healthiest possible cats in our breeding program.

We do require proof from your Veterinarian in the form of copies of medical records if a problem arises. We then discuss over with our own Veterinarian before making any decisions.

We do not guarantee anything if found due to negligence on the new owner's fault including not feeding the recommended cat foods. Good nutrition is of utmost importance for your growing kittens. If you feed a lesser quality cat food, that is also what you get, Is Less. Expensive isn’t always best. Many new foods that claim to be the best are quite often found to be nutritionally incomplete and just have a good advertising gimmick or sales agent.
