We provide a 72 hour limited warranty guarantee that the kitten/cat is in good health at the time of purchase. It is the responsibility of the buyer to take the kitten/cat to a veterinarian within this time for a thorough examination. If kitten/cat is not vet checked within 72 hours of going to its new home, the Victorian Sphynx contract will become void & Buyer will be considered in breach of contract.
Buyer agrees to keep kitten/cat quarantined for a period of 7 days from other cats or kittens. If kitten/cat has not been kept quarantined, warranty is void. If found to be medically deficient with an untreatable or life-threatening problem, this must be reported to us immediately. A signed statement from a licensed veterinarian as well as copies of any and all supporting diagnosis and/or documents is required to qualify for any exchange.
If an untreatable or life-threatening problem is found, the Buyer has the choice to return the animal for a replacement with all returning and receiving of replacement fee's being paid by buyer. There are no cash refunds. Upon its return, it will be replaced with a kitten/cat of equal value. If no replacement kitten/cat is available at the time of return, the Seller will have one year to furnish a comparable kitten/cat.
Transportation and all veterinary costs are the responsibility of the Buyer. The Seller retains the right to have a second opinion of a Vet of their choice. If after reporting any adverse conditions, the Buyer may choose to keep the kitten/cat thereby assuming all financial responsibilities. This health guarantee applies only to actual medical conditions that are life threatening and will not include any cosmetic conditions or conditions that are considered to be normal to the Sphynx; including stained teeth, umbilical hernia, slight heart murmur, small bumps and scratches of the skin, etc.
After the 72 hour health guarantee period the seller cannot be held accountable for future diagnosis of FeLV/FIV/FIP, any bacterial or viral infectious disease, parasites or fungus; due to the fact that these can be contracted anywhere in the environment the day they leave the cattery and are not a result of genetics or breeding. Buyer accepts all responsibility for protection of cat from said diseases, illnesses, parasites and fungi.
Victorian Shpynx offers a guarantee/protection against Hereditary/Congenital HCM on the kitten's first year of life. If, your kitten is diagnosed with HCM we will not refund you the cost of your cat/kitten but will replace your cat/kitten of similar type and quality when one is such available with buyer paying cost of delivery of replacement. HCM must be diagnosed with Ultrasound of approved veterinarian with a specialty is cardiology. Photographic and/or Microchip proof must be given that specific cat/kitten is indeed the diagnosed cat/kitten. HCM is very common in Sphynx, if your kitten gets the diagnosis with HCM it is at no fault of Victorian Sphynx. We do everything we possibly can to avoid HCM but unfortunitly it is in the breed. If diagnosed kitten/cat was purchased for breeding proof of spay/neuter must be provided prior to sending/receiving replacement kitten.
We will only replace a kitten once as the replacement kitten will then have no health guarantee.
Here at Victorian Sphynx we do take pride in our kittens and
can guarantee that have had all the love in the world!
