STRICT TERMS OF SALE

Our kittens are born and raised inside our home along with adult cats and my golden retriever dogs.  We socialise them to family life at the most crucial period of their social development; early ‘hands-on’ socialisation and being familiar with as many household noises early is vital. 

Kittens may be ready to go to their new homes at 13 weeks of age after being vet checked at least twice.  If I feel that a kitten would benefit from later homing for any reason I will keep them as long as I believe necessary.

All our kittens come complete with the following:

* GCCF or TICA registration.
* A multi-generation pedigree certificate, authenticated by a GCCF Registration Document.
( A pedigree certificate is worthless without an official TICA, FIFE or GCCF Registration Document to authenticate it )
* Both courses of the advised vaccinations.

* An up-to-date Vet’s Vaccination & Health Document.
* Veterinary broad-spectrum wormed against gastro-intestinal roundworm, hookworm, tapeworm and heartworm. This is a precautionary treatment but must be administered.
* Free from fleas.
* Scratch post trained.
* Successfully litter-tray trained.
* Kitten Care & Advice sheets

For information

There are 4 viral diseases that cats are commonly vaccinated for in the UK
herpes (rhinotracheitis) – the ‘R’ in FVRCP.
calici – the ‘C’ in FVRCP.
panleukopenia (“feline distemper”) – the ‘P’ in FVRCP.
feline leukemia – FeLV.

We expect our kittens to become well loved household pets, never under any circumstances whatsoever for breeding.  They will only be registered with the GCCF as strictly non-active (not to be bred from).  I reserve the right to withold the GCCF or TICA registration, ownership papers and pedigree until a qualified veterinarian verifies that our kitten or cat has been neutered by your veterinary  surgery.

I am also currently researching early neutering of our kittens prior to homing and this may also be done prior to you taking your kitten home.

The GCCF states that any cat which is kept purely as domestic pet should be neutered for the sake of the animals own health and welfare, as recommended by veterinary practitioners.

To emphasise

In order to promote responsible pet ownership, new owners must sign a legal & binding contract to undertake necessary neutering. As part of the contract you agree that the transfer paperwork is issued to you only after the kitten has been neutered and written evidence provided to me from your veterinary practice, as per GCCF code of ethics rule 10b.

The kitten’s long-term welfare is paramount, so we endeavour to find the most suitable homes. We will only home when we wholeheartedly believe the kitten’s future will be healthy, happy and forever secure.

If you ever feel for any reason at all that you can no longer care for the kitten or cat I must be informed in the first instance and be given the opportunity to have the kitten or cat back with me.  No refund will be issued in these circumstances.  I may also know of families that will help you with rehoming.

We adhere to high standards and abide by The General Code of Ethics as set out by The Governing Council of Cat Fancy.
