Terms and Conditions
Welcome to British Shorthair Cattery, where we strive to provide our customers with the healthiest and most well-cared-for kittens. Our kittens are up to date on all age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, freshly groomed, have their claws trimmed, and ears cleaned. We go the extra mile to ensure that our kittens are in optimal condition when they go to their new homes. Our experienced breeder is available throughout the lifetime of the kitten or cat to address queries, assist with concerns, and offer reliable advice.
To reserve a British Shorthair Cattery kitten or cat of your choice, a non-refundable deposit must be made to the breeder. The deposit will be applied towards the purchase price of the kitten or cat. We guarantee that the kitten or cat will be in good health for up to 48 hours from the time of purchase or arrival. Within this 48-hour health guarantee period, we recommend that the kitten or cat be kept separate from other pets until examined by the purchaser’s licensed veterinarian. If, upon examination, the kitten or cat is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, it is mandatory for the purchaser to immediately notify the breeder via a written letter sent by email and a telephone call to the breeder from the consulting veterinarian. DNA analysis may be required.
At British Shorthair Cattery, we stand by the health of our kittens or cats. If the kitten or cat is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, the breeder retains the right to replace the kitten or cat at their discretion. The breeder reserves the option to take up to 12 months to provide a replacement, as long as the breeder is actively breeding. However, the breeder will always endeavor to replace the kitten or cat from the next available litter if possible. No monetary refunds will be issued, without exceptions. You can trust us to provide you with healthy and joyful kittens.
At British Shorthair Cattery, we stand behind the health of our kittens and cats. We guarantee that your new kitten or cat will be free of life-threatening congenital defects, such as HCM, until 2 years of age. In the unlikely event that your kitten or cat passes away within the guaranteed time period due to a life-threatening congenital defect, we will replace your kitten or cat provided that an appropriate necropsy is conducted, along with the necessary DNA analysis.
To be eligible for a replacement, you must provide a written certificate from your veterinarian, along with an explanation that the death was caused by a congenital defect. We may also require a photograph of the deceased kitten or cat, as well as copies of veterinary records.
At the discretion of the breeder, a replacement kitten or cat of comparable quality and value will be provided within 12 months, as long as the breeder is actively breeding. We will always strive to replace the kitten or cat from the next available litter. Please note that we do not offer monetary refunds under any circumstances.
Kindly refrain from modifying the British Shorthair kitten or cat in any way, including tattoos, piercings, etc. We prioritize the health and well-being of our kittens and cats, and we appreciate your cooperation in maintaining their natural state.
