Purchaser and Seller agree to the following:
This contract refers to a registerable purebred Siberian sold as pet quality with limited
registration unless otherwise noted in an addendum. All registration papers and/or blue slips will
be marked 'Not for breeding' to reflect the cat's pet status.
The cat is guaranteed to be of sound health upon arrival into Purchaser's care. It will have been
vaccinated against Panleukopenia, Rhinotracheitis and Calicivirus. The Buyer will receive a health
record of all vaccines received as well as a schedule of the vaccines still needed to maintain the kitten's
health in the future. The buyer understands that the cat will have significant health risks if exposed to
cats that are high-risk. High-risk cats are those that may be unvaccinated, are carriers of cat viruses
or those that are allowed access to outdoors or have high-risk socialization patterns.
This cat is guaranteed against life-threatening congenital defects until its second birthday. Feline Infectious
Peritonitis is considered by the Breeder to be of a genetic origin. It is the responsibility of the Purchaser to
provide immediate veterinary care to a cat showing any sign of illness or distress and failure to do so will render any
guarantee null and void. No cat is to be euthanized without the prior knowledge of the Breeder, except in
the case where a veterinarian considers it the only humane alternative. To do so will void the guarantee.
Should the cat die within the above-mentioned time period as a direct result of a congenital defect, the cat
will be replaced only if an appropriate necropsy, paid for by the Purchaser, is performed by a licensed
veterinarian and a veterinarian's certificate is provided as proof of cause of death. It will then be the
Purchaser's choice to receive either a replacement cat of comparable quality and value or the full purchase
price. The Breeder can, however, at his discretion, opt to return the purchase price rather than replace the cat.
The cat can be returned within the first two-week period for any reason whatsoever for a refund of the purchase
price, less $200.00, as long as vaccines are up to date and all accompanying papers are returned. This two-week
period is deemed to start on the weekend that the Breeder feels the cat can be released to its new home. The
cat must have a health certificate issued no more than two days prior to the return of the kitten if more than
three days time has lapsed.
All return shipping expenses and import charges or taxes shall be paid by the Purchaser. Older cats are also
accepted back and we will refund to you whatever we re-sell the cat for, less $200.00. If the cat can be re-housed
from the Purchaser's home, the entire amount gained by the re-sale will be given to the original Purchaser.
The cat will be kept indoors and not be allowed to roam freely outside. The only time it is permissible for the
cat to be outdoors is when under supervision on a harness and leash or when protected within an approved cat enclosure.
Mindeelyn Siberians must be contacted if at any time during the cat's life the Purchaser is unable to keep the cat.
The Purchaser agrees to give the Breeder a chance to re-house the cat. The Purchaser also agrees that the cat, nor
any of its offspring will ever be sold, given, leased out, rented, loaned to an animal shelter, pet store, commercial
or private laboratory or research and development center.
If this cat is found to be neglected or mistreated, the Buyer agrees to surrender the cat and all rights to the cat to
the Breeder or his representative unconditionally without benefit of refund or any course of reclaim.
The Breeder will not be responsible for any veterinary expenses incurred by the Purchaser while the cat is in the
possession of the Purchaser.
The total liability of the Breeder shall in no case exceed the total purchase price of the cat.
The Breeder has made every effort to raise the healthiest, most well socialized cat possible. Any health and / or
behavioral issues that are known to the Breeder have been discussed in full with the Purchaser. The Purchaser
understands that a cat is a living creature and that although the Breeder has made every effort to provide the most
perfect cat possible, health and behavioral problems can still arise. Should a problem arise, the Purchaser and the
Breeder agree to work together to solve the issue and both agree to abide with the terms of the signed contract.
- Because this cat's relatives will have been used in Mindeelyn's breeding program, the Breeder wishes to be notified
of any health problems discovered in the purchased cat as it may have an impact on the health of related cats.
- The Breeder has the right, at his discretion, to cancel this contract at any time before delivery of the cat. In
this case, the full deposit will be returned to the Purchaser. Should the Purchaser cancel this agreement before the cat
is delivered, or fail to pay the balance due on time, the cat may be sold to another and the Purchaser's full deposit
will be retained as a cancellation fee.
By signing this document, the contract, we, the Breeder and the Purchaser, consider it to be legally binding
under all circumstances and in all courts of law. This sales agreement is non-transferable to other parties. This
agreement is not to be superceded by any other agreements, be they written or verbal, unless accompanied with signed
documentation outlining the new agreement or amendment.
All legal expenses incurred by Mindeelyn Siberians to enforce the terms of this contract will be paid by the
Purchaser If one clause in this contract is declared void that does not affect the rest of the contract which shall
Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this contract, or breach thereof, shall be settled by
arbitration administrated by the Arbitration Association in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration. Rules and judgment
on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
