To the Buyer-
The conditions of this sale are as follows:
(1) The price of the above kitten/cat includes the above US non-refundable deposit due
for reservation of kitten/cat. Unless the kitten is a local (less than 60 miles from the
Kansas City metro pick up/drop off, the balance shall be paid in full 3-4 weeks prior ( by 7/7/21) to
the delivery date to allow for an appointment, vet checks, payments to clear, etc. If the cat is
flying to its new home,or driving, not local the balance is due three weeks prior to the delivery date to allow for
veterinary and flight appointments to take place. If it is a local transaction, cash only the
day of delivery is fine.
(2) The seller provides a 72 hours limited guarantee that the above kitten/cat is in good
health at the time of purchase. It is the responsibility of the buyer to take the kitten/cat to
a licensed veterinarian within this time for a thorough examination. Failure to have the
kitten/cat checked by a licensed veterinarian will void the guarantee. It is recommended that
the kitten/cat be quarantined for a period of 14 days before being introduced to other
cats/animals in your household. If the kitten/cat has been determined by a licensed
veterinarian, within this 72 hours and this is provided in writing to the seller, to have anything that is genetically wrong with it, the seller will replace it with a kitten of equal value when one becomes available. There will be no money refunded. The seller has the right to have a second opinion by a vet of his/her choice prior to deciding to make the replacement. Transportation and return of the kitten cost and all veterinary costs are the responsibility of the buyer.______________(Initial)
(3). If the cat\ kitten is found within the first 72 hrs. to be medically deficient with an
untreatable or life-threatening congenital problem, this must be reported to the Seller immediately. Research suggests that over 90% of all cats are carriers for the herpes
This virus is airborne, can live on surfaces and is generally thought by veterinarians to
cause the vast majority of cat and kitten common colds. Purebreds ( all purebred cats are more susceptible) sphynx are even more susceptible, in my humble opinion, due to hairless
nature and heat loss. This is NOT a congenital or genetic defect, just a known risk to the breed, like needing regular dental care/ tooth brushing, and baths. We are extremely lucky to
have very few colds ever here and all of our Queens and Kings have negative status on
file with our veterinarian. This is very similar to human adults that have shingles expression of
the chicken pox as evidence of chicken pox exposure. ___________(initial)
If kitten is found deficient with an untreatable or life-threatening congenital problem,
a signed statement from a licensed veterinarian as well as copies of any
and all supporting diagnosis and/or documents is required to qualify for any exchange/replacement. If
an untreatable or life-threatening problem is found, the Buyer has the choice to return
the animal for a replacement with all returning and receiving of replacement fees being
paid by buyer. Upon its return, it will be replaced with a kitten/cat of equal value. If no replacement kitten/cat is available at the time of return, the Seller will have one year to furnish a comparable kitten/cat. Transportation and all veterinary costs are the responsibility of the Buyer. The Seller retains the right to have a second opinion of a Vet of their choice. If after reporting any adverse conditions, the Buyer may choose to keep
the kitten/cat thereby assuming all financial responsibilities. This health guarantee
applies only to actual medical conditions that are life threatening and will not include any
cosmetic conditions or conditions that are considered to be non life threatening to a
feline/Sphynx. After the 72 hour health guarantee period the seller cannot be held accountable for future diagnosis of FeLV/FIV/FIP, any bacterial or viral infectious
disease, parasites or fungus; due to the fact that these can be contracted anywhere in
the environment after leaving the cattery and are not a result of genetics or breeding.
The FIP guarantee will be void if said kitten is given the FIP vaccination. Buyer accepts all responsibility for the protection of cat from said diseases, illnesses, parasites and fungi.
(4) Adora Sphynx offers a guarantee/protection against Hereditary/Congenital HCM on
the kittens first 1 year of life. If, your kitten is diagnosed with HCM, an increased risk in
all Sphynx/ bambino / elf’s, we will not refund you the cost of your cat/kitten but will
replace your cat/kitten of similar type and quality when one is such available with buyer paying cost of delivery of replacement. HCM must be diagnosed with Ultrasound of approved veterinarian with a specialty is cardiology. A signed statement from a licensed veterinarian certified in cardiology as well as copies of any and all supporting diagnosis
and/or documents is required to qualify for any exchange. If said untreatable problem is
found, the Buyer has the choice to return the animal for a replacement with all returning
and receiving of replacement fees being paid by buyer, all vet records and Tica/cfa paperwork must also accompany any returned kitty to our cattery. Upon its return, it will be
replaced with a kitten/cat of equal value. If no replacement kitten/cat is available at the
the time of return, the Seller will have one year to furnish a comparable kitten/cat or
refund the price minus non-refundable deposit after the year is up.
Transportation of replacement and all veterinary costs are the responsibility of the Buyer. The Seller retains the right to have a second opinion by a veterinarian of their
choice. If after reporting any adverse conditions, the Buyer may choose to keep the
kitten/cat thereby assuming all financial responsibilities. This health guarantee applies
only to actual medical conditions that are life threatening such as HCM and will not
include any cosmetic conditions or conditions that are considered to be common, non life thretening to the
Sphynx/ or felines.
(5) This kitten(s)/cat is guaranteed against life-threatening congenital defects for one year
from the date on this contract. If the kitten should die within the guaranteed one year, the seller has the right to request an autopsy to be paid for by the buyer, be performed
to determine the cause of death. We will not refund you the cost of your cat/kitten but will
replace your cat/kitten of similar type and quality when one is such available with buyer
paying the cost of delivery of replacement. The fatal congenital defect must be diagnosed
at your cost with a board-certified approved veterinarian. A signed statement from a licensed
veterinarian as well as copies of any and all supporting diagnosis
and/or documents is required to qualify for any replacement if you choose to request a replacement.
(6) the buyer agrees to provide a safe, loving indoor-only home that includes: high-
quality cat/kitten food, a clean litter box, clean bowls, clean bedding and clean drinking water to the adopted animal(s). The buyer also agrees to standard and, if needed, emergency veterinary care of kitten/ cat for as long as it lives. If the buyer cannot maintain this environment for the cat/kitten they agreed to contact Adora Sphynx for help and surrender of the animal/ first right of refusal.
(7) Kittens will have their appropriate combination vaccinations for their age at the
of leaving the cattery. Kittens get booster shots every 3-4 weeks starting at age
4-6 weeks old. It is very important to follow up with your vet and stay on track with the
vaccinations. If you do not stay reasonably on track with vaccinations, within a week to
ten days, that voids the one-year congenital health guarantee.
(8) Under NO circumstances will this animal be declawed or decoratively tattooed. Declawing an animal,
for all intents and purposes, is amputation at the first knuckle. Doing this can interfere with the cats ability to or their ability to want to use the litter box, as it can cause pain in the
box. If we find out that you have declawed or tattooed the animal, it is breach of this contract and
we will reclaim the animal at your return cost. Feline Leukemia and FIP Inoculation is very dangerous to your kitten/cat and could
cause death. Please do your own research. Contract will be void if kitten/cat shall receive either of the above stated vaccines. The
hairless breed is known to have heart issues and you must be aware and agree to the special needs of this unique breed. Thus, by default , in completing this adoption the buyer acknowledges these health issues. It is NOT the breeders responsibility to educate the buyer about the breed. It is the buyers responsibility to educate themselves on their kitten / cats and information that maybe needed arising from adopting an purebred/ exotic breed. Please see your veterinarian for additional guidance.
9). As the seller, we have the right to refuse and/or cancel sale at any given time, or
reason, as we see fit. You also understand that the hairless breed is an indoor cat only.
And under no circumstance shall the kitten/cat be declawed or tattooed. By doing so is Automatic breach of contract and immediate surrender to breeder. ______________(initial) (10) Seller has the conditional right to reclaim kitten/cat without refund of purchase
price for any breach of contract. Breach of this contract will have a penalty fee which is
equal to the purchase price of the above kitten/cat. (unless breach is under sections of the
spay - neuter clauses, these breaches hold a stiffer fine, as noted) Under no
circumstances will this cat/kitten be sold, leased or given away to any pet store. If for
any reason you cannot retain ownership of said animal, the breeder shall be given the first
right of refusal.
(11) Any legal action which may arise under the terms of this contract will be brought in
Gardner, Kansas, Johnson County, USA. Buyer shall be liable for any court costs and
related charges including attorney fees associated with the seller enforcing the terms of
this contract. In signing this document, Buyer acknowledges that he/she has read, understands and agrees to ALL of the terms and conditions stated above.
(12) Signatures and dates below indicate full agreement to ALL terms set forth in this
contract. No other warranties or guarantees are provided other than those specifically
outlined above. The above signed consider this document to be legally binding.
Changes additions to this Contract must be initialed by all parties.
(13) Please note: No feline is completely hairless and the sphynx color can sometimes
change due to climate, exposure, hormones, etc. This kitten is sold representing Its
color at the time of contract and our best-educated guess. Eye color can change until up to 6 or 7 months of age. This
is understood as well as it is understood that the degree of hairlessness of the Sphynx
cat varies from cat to cat and sometimes from season to season. No Sphynx is truly completely hairless. Some degree of hair is normal. Hormones and genetics play an
important role in degree of hairlessness and even though a kitten may be almost
hairless when it is sold, it is possible that the kitten could develop some hair after being neutered/spayed or, as it grows older. It is impossible to guarantee that any breeds
categorized as a hairless kittens or cats will not grow hair at some point and time.
(14) I (the buyers ,initials) _________agree to have the kitten/ cat, that I purchased from Leta Rogers, and Adora Sphynx cattery spayed/neutered prior to leaving the cattery. IF for
some reason the cat has to leave the cattery prior to spay or neuter, due to weight or
age, I understand that I do NOT have the right to breed this kitten. I also understand
that I will receive the pedigree papers when I provide proof that this kitten has been
spayed/neutered. Any breech of this contract can result in the seller taking repossession
of the cat. It is then your responsibility to get said kitten spayed/neutered. Even if you become unable to care for said kitten and need to re-turn him/ her to Adora Sphynx. You will be held liable on getting the proper documentation to The seller to prove that said kitten has been spayed/neutered. Your vets information is not acceptable as proof. I will NOT contact your vet in order to get this proof. You must provide it to me. A copy of the receipt with the pets name, dob, and breed on it works best for this. You can email it to me or even take a picture and text it to me.
(15) You do not have the right to sell
or re home said kitten for any reason. If special circumstances arise that hinder your
ability to care for your pet, please call me and we will work together to find the best
solution for the cat/kitten. It is also stated above that if you are unable to care for said
kitten then Adora Sphynx (Leta Rogers) will be notified and have the option on getting said kitten
Adora sphynx cattery requires a $400 non- refundable deposit to reserve a Sphynx
kitten/cat or a $600 non-refundable deposit to reserve a bambino or elf kitten or cat. Any monies placed/sent for a
kitten are non-refundable.
This deposit and any additional payments or monies paid will go towards the total agreed-upon price.
If said kitten is returned or buyer request the contract be canceled, for any reason,
there is an additional of $ 600 fee for a Sphynx and a $900 re-homing fee for a bambino/elfs /dwelfs/ odd eyed felines. This
is due at contract cancellation. If the non-refundable deposit was paid and additional monies or payments,
were made they will be forfeit for the care, feeding, veterinary cost and rehoming of the animal.
(16) This cat or kitten is being sold as a pet or altered show pet only and not for
breeding purposes. If seller does not have spay/neuter certificates in hand after 6
months of age, there is a fine of $8,000 (this is a fine and still does not give buyer any
breeding rights) and the contract will be turned over to our attorney and buyer agrees to
pay all fees incurred by Leta Rogers and /or Adora Sphynx.
(17) I sincerely ask of you that if you are unable to care for said kitten for any reason please
contact me and let me help. I will do all I can to find the pet safely back to our cattery or find
the pets best options. I will work with you on this for a solution that is in the pets best interest.
I will enforce this contract as the law will allow me to so. If the kitten/cat is sold to you as a
show cat, we cannot guarantee their performance in the ring or how they will develop as they grow or even if they will tolerate it. Although some cats are show quality, not all
cats enjoys that environment.
Thank you so much for your cooperation and choosing to love an Adora Sphynx baby!
