1. Buyer agrees that under no circumstances will this kitten/cat be sold, leased or given to another party without the consent of the Breeder/Seller.  Furthermore, it is agreed that transfer of possession, or care of the kitten/cat to another party may only be done with express written permission of Seller.  If such permission is given, new owner must sign a new contract, identical or similar to this one, with breeder/seller.  Should buyer not be able to keep this animal for any reason, including the incapacitation or death of the buyer, it is to be returned to breeder/seller for placement without refund of any kind, unless the above written permission to transfer ownership is obtained.  Buyer will not surrender kitten/cat to any research facility, pet shop, Humane Society, Animal Shelter, Rescue group or similar facility.  This remains in effect for the ENTIRE life of the kitten/cat.  We will not ask questions as to why you can no longer provide care for the above kitten/cat.  Buyer agrees to tell family members about this clause.  Buyers Initials _______

2. Buyer agrees that if the kitten/cat is found to be neglected or mistreated, Breeder/Seller shall have the unconditional right to reclaim the kitten/cat WITHOUT refund of purchase price.  Neglect shall include, but is not limited to: being left alone without human companionship for periods in excess of 72 hours; lack of proper sanitary facilities; being caged; poor health, and otherwise poor condition.  Mistreatment shall include, but is not limited to: lack of proper food, lack of water, lack of proper medical care, and any form of physical abuse.  Buyer will be responsible for any veterinary bills directly incurred as a result of any neglect or mistreatment.  Buyers Initials _______ Furthermore if for any reason the kitten/cat is returned to the Breeder/Seller, Buyer agrees to pay all expenses, including shipping costs, mileage and re-examination expense by Breeder/Seller's veterinarian.  This examination will include a complete ‘viral panel’ blood test for FELV, FIP, FIA and FIV viruses.  If kitten/cat is returned to Seller for resale on behalf of the Buyer, the terms of this resale will be agreed upon under separate written agreement.  Buyers Initials _______ The cat/kitten is guaranteed to be of sound health upon arrival. It is guaranteed for a period of 72 hours from the purchase or arrival if vet checked within that time. It is recommended that the new cat / kitten be in quarantine for at the very least this first 72 hours.

3. Buyer accepts the responsibility of caring for the kitten /cat and will provide properly for its welfare and understands this kitten/cat is being sold as an indoor only kitten/cat.  BUYER agrees to keep the kitten/cat indoors at all times in a clean and pleasant environment, uncaged, with companionship, and adequate space for exercise.  Above kitten/cat is ONLY allowed outdoors while on a leash and while under close supervision.  Buyer understands that allowing a kitten/cat to roam freely outdoors could cause kitten/cat to pick up a life threatening disease/illness from dirt/grass or other animals as well as causing other possible life threatening effects on kitten/cat such as being hit by a car or attacked by other animals.  DONSKOYS are even more vulnerable because of their lack of fur.  It is comparable to being outside with unprotected skin.  They are at risk of insect bites, sunburn, frostbite, and torn skin from sharp rocks or branches.  The buyer therefore agrees that their companion pet will not be allowed outside except while in a carrier, when it is in a secured escape proof play enclosure, or on a leash.  Buyers Initials _______

4. Buyer agrees to provide weekly baths, weekly nail trimming, weekly ear cleaning and eye cleaning as required.  These cats’ bodies produce oil (sweat) which dirt clings to and weekly baths are necessary to prevent skin issues.  Failure to provide weekly ear cleanings may result in deadly ear infections.  The above kitten/cat will leave this Cattery freshly bathed with trimmed nails and freshly cleaned ears.  If preferred, Breeder/Seller will not bathe/clean the kitten/cat until the time of pickup so that Buyer may see Breeder/Seller's methods used for bathing, ear cleaning, eye cleaning and nail trimming.  Buyers Initials _______

5. Buyer understands that there are many plants that are poisonous and toxic to kitten/cats.  Buyer agrees to educate himself on plants that are dangerous to cats/kittens and agrees to remove or place all of these plants out of reach of kitten/cat before kitten/cat is in Buyers possession.  Breeder/Seller will not be held responsible for injuries caused to kitten/cat by plants in Buyers home.  Buyers Initials ______

6. Buyer understands that declawing is a mutilation involving the amputation of a large portion of the Donskoy's toes (Monkey fingers), which will alter the kitten/cat's temperament and general well-being.  Buyer understands that if the kitten/cat is declawed it will render the guarantee *VOID*.  Buyer agrees that above kitten/cat will NEVER be declawed and that adequate scratching posts and regular nail trimming will be provided. Buyers Initials _______

7. *If Cat is sold as "Show Cat", Buyer agrees to enter cat in competitions only in peak show condition as expected in entries for TICA or other Cat Fancier Associations. Because Breeder/Sellers can not determine how a kitten will grow and mature to any definitive degree the Breeder/Seller does not and can not guarantee this cat will win any kind of award from any Cat Fanciers or other similar organization.  Many factors come into play, such as illness, injury and grooming which play a big roll in a cat winning awards at Cat Shows.  Buyers Initials _______

8. Buyer agrees that a kitten/cat, when entering a home where there is another animal present, will be isolated for a period of up to 2 weeks and will only be gradually introduced to other animals in the home.  It is strongly advised that even a kitten entering a home with no other pets should be gradually introduced to the household, being isolated in one room with its waste container and food for at least two weeks, to allow for adjustment to its new home.  Each kitten/cat will differ in the time it needs to bond with its new family.  Please allow the kitten/cat ample time to adjust, especially if the kitten/cat has been shipped.  A period of two to four weeks should be the very least amount of time allowed the cat/kitten for an adjustment period.  Longer if this is an adult cat or there are children in the house.  Please give your new friend and family member a chance to bond with you and its new surroundings.  Your new kitten/cat needs to feel safe and secure for its unique individual personality to surface.  Buyer understands that kitten/cat can come down with an URI (Upper Respiratory Infection)/Cold due to the stress of moving.  Buyers Initials _______

9.The Breeder/Seller will have completed all of the age-appropriate vaccinations, worming, medical examining, and altering for cats/kittens purchased as pet or show alter by the time of purchase and an original neuter/spay certificate from a Licensed Veterinarian.  Registration papers from TICA will be provided in a timely fashion.

10. BUYER agrees to provide yearly veterinarian examinations and to keep kitten/cat's recommended vaccines up to date for the duration of kitten/cat's life, as well as obtain proper veterinarian care if illness is suspect or an accident has occurred.
Buyer will not vaccinate kitten/cat with modified live FIP vaccine, Leukemia vaccine or any combination vaccine that contains live or killed Leukemia or MCK Vaccine (Ringworm).  If any of these vaccines are used on kitten/cat all health guarantees are null and void.  Mortality is high for kittens.  Tetracyline and Doxycycline are two medications that can cause death to your Donskoy.
Do not allow kitten/cat to be given
Keraset/Ace combo ever for any reason.  Health Guarantee void if kitten/cat has this combination.  We strongly suggest Isofluramine as the anesthetic of choice if at any time an anesthetic becomes necessary.  Please make sure your Vet sees this contract and understands this clause.  The Breeder/Seller certifies that all kitten/cats in our breeding program are negative for FELV (Feline Leukemia) and FIV (Feline Aids.).  Buyers Initials _______

11. This cattery does not test for Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) at this time or guarantee against it.  Accuracy of testing results is subject to opinion so Breeder/Seller feels it almost impossible to guarantee against this disease even if testing is performed.  Buyers Initials ______

12. Breeder/Seller does not guarantee against treatable nuisances (such as fungus, yeast, internal parasites, Upper Respiratory Infection etc.) which are not life threatening and are considered to be common to the breed or can/could be brought on by stress.  However, Breeder/Seller would never knowingly place a kitten/cat with any of these conditions.  Buyers Initials _______

13. This kitten/cat has received at least its
first distemper vaccine, which includes all of the following: Panleukopenia, Rhinotracheitis, Calcivirus, and Chlamydia.  All adult cats in Breeder/Seller program receive yearly distemper vaccine.  Caution when you are getting you Donskoy's distemper booster make sure that it contains Chlamydia and not the Leukemia vaccine. Buyers Initials _______

14. THE BUYER assumes
responsibility of all expenses incurred in relation to the kitten/cat after said kitten/cat leaves the possession of the Breeder/Seller, as well as any expense incurred at the request of the Buyer before the kitten/cat leaves possession of the Breeder/Seller.  The breeder assumes no liability for any veterinary costs or other expenses incurred by the owner, even in the case of detecting a defect or disease unknown at the time of sale.  The Buyer acknowledges that the breeder's liability can never exceed what is expressly guaranteed in this agreement. Buyers Initials _______

15. BUYER agrees to provide responsible care for the kitten/cat, including proper nutrition, sanitary conditions, suitable warm place for the kitten/cat at ALL times.  Due to the lack of fur, DONSKOYS are more easily chilled than some other breeds.  BUYER agrees to feed a high protein diet to accommodate the amount of body heat lost as a result of no fur.  Donskoy´s are connoisseurs and like a variety of foods, this will be addressed on an instruction sheet.  BUYER agrees to create and maintain proper sanitary facilities for bodily functions of kitten/cat.  Litter is not recommended for Donskoy´s.  If you prefer litter a natural litter is recommended.  A special Donskoy feeding and care instruction sheet will be provided and for you to follow for your kitten/cats optimum health..  Buyers Initials _______

A ‘Holding fee’ is placed to hold a particular kitten for a buyer.  If a kitten/cat is held specifically for a buyer, a change of mind can quite often jeopardize the chance for that particular kitten to be placed in a home while still at a desirable age; therefore all holding fees are non-refundable regardless of circumstance.  The minimum required ‘Holding fee’ is $400.00 toward the agreed upon price of the kitten/cat.  The full price will be entered on the agreement in the "Sold for the following price" area.  Payment in Full' in the amount of the purchase price shall be paid by the time the kitten is 10 weeks of age.  When the sale of the kitten/cat is consummated, the holding fee shall be applied towards the balance owing on the purchase price.  In the event the buyer decides not to take possession of said cat/kitten, the holding fee will be deemed non-refundable.  The time period from ‘Holding Fee’ to ‘Payment in Full’, for the purchase of a kitten/cat older than 12 weeks of age, will be stated in the Terms of Agreement  Buyers Initials _______
