Purchaser Agrees to the following rules of Bareenough Sphynx Cat/Kittens:
This purchase agreement is a legally binding contract for the sale of one kitten / cat as fully described at the end of this document between BareenoughSphynx Cattery (the SELLER) and ______________________________ (the BUYER) and entered into on this ______________day of _______________, 2016.
Buyer agrees that this kitten was purchased as pet quality and may be shown in cat shows if desired.
Cat/kitten must be seen by your vet within 72 hours of purchase.______ Initial
Primary Warranty of Health
The SELLER provides a 72-hour limited guarantee that the kitten / cat is in good health at the time of purchase. The SELLER also warranties that the kitten is free of the feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) at the time of purchase. In order to validate the warranty, the BUYER must take the kitten / cat to a licensed veterinarian within 72 hours of the date of purchase, excluding holidays and weekends, for a health examination. This examination shall be at the BUYERS expense. If, in the opinion of the veterinarian, the kitten / cat is suffering from any illness or medical condition, the BUYER must notify the SELLER immediately. Under no circumstance is the SELLER responsible for any Veterinary charges. The kitten / cat may be returned to the SELLER and exchanged for a comparable kitten / cat if available or from the next litter. Note to BUYER - Keep in mind that most veterinarians have never even seen a Sphynx cat, much less treated one and are uneducated about our breed. If the veterinarian finds the kitten / cat to have a life-threatening illness, he must write and sign a short note on his letterhead stationary explaining his findings. This guarantee will be void if the kitten / cat is exposed to any other animal between delivery to the BUYER and the examination. Note to BUYER - It is highly recommended that the above kitten / cat be quarantined during that 72-hour warranty period. Finally, under NO circumstances is the kitten / cat allowed to be destroyed prior to notification of the SELLER, regardless of the kitten's / cat's medical condition or injuries.
The Purchaser promises to maintain a preventative vaccination schedule, and keep the cat in good health.
This cat/kitten is not to be destroyed for any reason.
Seller is not responsible for incurred vet bills. __________ Initial
Seller will guarantee 1 year on genetic illnesses resulting in death. The SELLER will replace the kitten with another kitten of equal or better quality at no cost to BUYER- Except for shipping if applicable (Seller does not pay for shipping). The SELLER must receive proof of the defect in the form of a complete autopsy report completed by a licensed veterinarian and performed at the BUYERS expense prior to any kitten replacement. The SELLER will make every attempt to replace the kitten with a kitten of equal or better color, marking, and quality in a timely manner. BAREENOUGH Sphynx breeder cats are scanned for HCM, however, HCM can show up at any age. The Sphynx breed is known to have heart issues and you must be aware and agree to the special needs of this unique breed. There are no cash refunds _______Initial
Heterochromatic (Odd Eyes)
Odd eye kittens are not sold at kitten prices. Odd eyed kittens are $2800.00. I usually cannot tell if a kitten is odd eyed until it is 5-6 wks of age. If your kitten turns out to be heterochromatic then I will contact you right away and you have a few options: You may purchase the kitten at the “odd eye” price or receive your deposit back so you can find another kitten elsewhere or be able to pick first from my next litter (you do not receive your deposit back) or pick from what I have available. This is a risk you take when you reserve a kitten at a very young age. Heterochomatic kittens are rare. It has come up once in 2015.
Post sale treatment
If the BUYER chooses to vaccinate the kitten/cat for feline infectious peritonitis (FIP), ringworm, feline leukemia virus (FeLV), or feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), all warranties of health are void. Also, SELLER will not warranty the kitten/cat against any adverse reactions to future vaccinations or surgeries.
Under no circumstance can a Bareenough cat/kitten be de-clawed. De-clawing is an inhumane mutilation. It consists of amputation of the first knuckle. It is comparable to the removal of a human fingertip at the first knuckle. Doing so will constitute breach of this contract on the part of the BUYER.
Inside cat/ kitten only
This cat/kitten is to be an indoor cat only due to lack of hair Sphynx can freeze or sunburn very quickly. Under no circumstance is this cat/kitten to be given to the pound/ animal shelter or sold /given away to any pet stores or animal research facilities.
I DO NOT SHIP CATS/KITTENS IN CARGO / you may fly out to Ontario, California and I will deliver your kitten/cat to Ontario, CA airport to meet you. This way your kitten/cat fly’s in the passenger area of the plane with you.
We prefer that you come in person to pick up your cat/ kitten. You can also use a courier service. When possible, we deliver to an agreed location at a reasonable distance from the SELLER'S place of business. If a party other then the SELLER must transport the kitten/cat, such transportation will be at the discretion and the cost of the BUYER. The SELLER is not responsible for illness, injury or death caused by or during shipping. Further, due to possible exposure to other animals beyond the SELLERS control, the quarantine requirement clause (Primary Warranty of Health), will be assumed violated.
This cat/kitten is to be given water and plenty of good quality grain free dry food freely. Raw diets are also a good choice. Do not give too much can food because this can cause diarrhea. Sphynx have a higher metabolism then the normal cat. They do need to eat more, this is to keep their body temperature up. Canned food can be given but not as their main source of nutrition.
This cat/kitten shall not be caged.
Degree of hairlessness
It is understood that degree of hairlessness in Sphynx vary from cat to cat and that no Sphynx is completely hairless. It is understood that hormones, climate, and genetics play an important role in hairlessness and that even though a Sphynx kitten may be completely or almost hairless when sold, it is possible that said kitten could develop some hair after being neutered / spayed or as it grows older. It is also impossible to guarantee that any Sphynx kitten / cat will not grow some hair at some point in the future. Outcross furred kittens will stay furred : )
The purchaser agrees to the following:
Bareenough Sphynx requires a $500.00 per kitten/cat non-refundable deposit to reserve kitten/cat.

If not, a second choice will be accepted or refund made.
If the buyer, having put a deposit on a kitten/cat, should later change their mind about the purchase, the deposit will not be refunded. If, however, something should happen to the kitten/cat before the Buyer picks up his/her kitten/cat, Bareenough Sphynx Cattery will replace it with one of equal quality and value from the next available litter.
