It's very important to honor the pickup date of a chosen kitten. When choosing a kitten the BUYER is agreeing to pickup within 5 days of that date. If BUYER is unable to pick up within 5 days of the announced pickup date special arrangements must be made in advance and a boarding fee of $10 per day will be charged.

DECLAWING IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED AND THE BUYER AGREES NOT TO DECLAW AND THAT IT WILL CONSTITUTE A BREACH OF OUR AGREEMENT! This is a mutilation involving the amputation of a large portion of the kitten/cat’s toes, essentially cutting the fingers at the first joint or even the second joint. The procedure and certainly the recovery are extremely painful and likely to alter the kitten/cat’s ability to walk properly, temperament, and general well-being. WE STRONGLY SUGGEST YOU RECONSIDER THIS PROCEDURE IF IT IS YOUR INTENTION. An alternative is routine nail trimming, nail caps, or simply providing adequate scratching posts because proper training will alleviate most issues. If you would not remove your child's fingertip to avoid damage to your furniture you should not be willing to do that to your kitten.
BUYER understands that if the terms and conditions of this contract are not met or the kitten/cat is found to be neglected or mistreated in any way SELLER shall have the unconditional right to reclaim the above kitten/cat without refund of the purchase price.
