*We guarantee the results of these tests until you leave our premises where contact with sources out with our controlled environment can introduce infections and diseases. See 4 below. * Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) Negative *Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV):
Sales Agreement binds both parties as follows: “You” – The buyer &
“We, Our, Us”– The Seller &
Kitten, Cat – The subject being sold
1. Resale If for any reason the buyer can no longer offer a home to the kitten, the buyer agrees to obtain permission to sell the named kitten from the seller and offer it back to the seller before proceeding with a sale or be liable for the full purchase price named above in “Price” to the seller. 2. 72 Hour Health Check You are required to take your kitten to your own Veterinary Surgeon within 48 hours of leaving our premises. The purpose of this visit is to ensure you and your vet are satisfied that the kitten is in perfect health; the kitten is fit for purpose i.e. breeding and there are no visible genetic faults. If your VS finds any fault or issue that our own VS has not been aware of then we will happily accept your kitten back and give you a full refund, provided that the kitten is back with us within 3 days after departing at the buyers expense. Failure to return the kitten within this time period will mean no refunds will be offered. If your kitten should fall ill after 72 hours then we request that you contact your VS in the first instance and then us to discuss an action plan. We will not be held responsible for any veterinary fees incurred after you have left the premises. After you have owned the cat for 72 hours, we will not accept the cat back for a replacement when the next kitten becomes available unless there is proven HCM or structural abnormality with the kitten and only IF the kitten is tested for an upper respiratory panel and a faecal panel via our laboratory IDEXX. The kitten must be negative on both tests for us to take the kitten back and validate a replacement guarantee. There must be a microchip validated for the tests. Proof was Seller Initial:

given that your kitten was clear on departure so we cannot accept it back with anything other than a reflection of the test results given. All scan documents and any xrays/ vet reports must be submitted to our VS for review before we will commit to a return and replacement. We will honour the HCM and structural abnormality guarantee for the life of your kitten. 3. Indoor Only or in a protected cat run We will only sell kittens to indoor only homes. Your cat can live a long and happy life indoors providing you give them toys, annual vet checks and vaccination boosters, companionship and a good diet. They can have the best of both worlds with an outdoor cat run. We do stipulate that if you do want to let your cat outside into a cat run then it MUST be protected from the ground to 1 metre in height with Perspex or other similar barrier. If you have anything otherwise, pets that do get outside who will be mixing with your kitten or choose not to place a barrier from potential infection then you MUST vaccinate against FeLV ANNUALLY or BI-ANNUALLY for the health guarantee to be valid. Failure to install 1 metre from ground Perspex on the run also voids health guarantees. 4. Health Guarantee Your kittens parents have been tested as outlined above and has been proven clear of any problems. We carefully manage infection control and regularly test all our cats to try and ensure we have the cleanest, safest breeding and pet cats in the world. Your kitten has been vaccinated twice against FPV, Chlamydia, Herpes and Calicivirus. Once you leave our premises the kitten may become exposed to various infections or diseases shown above through the air, other pets or from your clothes or shoes when travelling in and out of your home. We will not be responsible for any kitten who should fall ill that has been let outside in the open world. If your kitten goes on to develop any genetic fault within 2 years of age and it proves to be fatal, we will replace the cat at no cost to the buyer when the next one becomes available. A post mortem will be required and the buyer must cover expenses. Your VS must be willing to discuss their findings with our VS to validate this guarantee. No cash refund will be given under any circumstances. 5. Pet/ Show Agreement Your cat has been brought up in a very social environment with children, TVs, Music, Vacuum cleaners, visitors etc. Your kitten should not be nervous after a week in it’s new home with you. Remember that Savannahs are hybrid cats and can be picky with who they decide to bond with. They usually form a parent/child type bond with one person but that is not to say that your kitten will not be approachable by anyone else. Encourage visitors to talk to your cat and pet them but do not force people or children on your kitten as it may deter them from people in future. Gradual is a key word we use for just about everything as cat breeders. Introduce them gradually to both you and your new home. Your Royal Canin Kitten Pack contains a book, which gives you top tips on bringing your kitten home. You are not allowed to breed from this cat unless it has been registered by us, Stylisticat, on the active register with TICA. If your cat has been sold on the inactive register then it MUST be neutered or spayed by the time it is 5 months of age and certainly before we will transfer them into your name through TICA. Please see our Code of Ethics below as to why we follow this rule. 6. DWA, Code of Ethics & Cattery of Excellence We work extremely hard to develop an excellent breeding standard. We are inspected annually from a Veterinary Surgeon and the local council to receive our Cattery of Excellence by TICA and renew our Dangerous Wild Animal Licence, which is required to have Servals and F1’s. If you are buying a DWA you MUST have suitable housing and provide us with a copy of your DWA before we will sell you one. We are required to keep a log of DWA sales by the local council as part of our licence. We are certified as “Responsible Breeders” by The International Cat Association and have signed the Voluntary Code of Ethics. We abide by these rules as follows:
KITTEN SALES CONTRACT PET
1. We will remain in good standing of TICA and have a registered cattery. 2. We will breed discriminately and ensure we find appropriate homes who can provide a life-long commitment of love. Any cat 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.
sold as a pet or show will be sold under the following conditions: We guarantee the cats in good health at the time of sale. We urge the buyer to have the cat examined by his or her own vet. We require the cat be neutered or spayed. We have explained the dangers of the outdoors. We have provided a written sales agreement. We will only provide the TICA registration/ pedigree for the kitten ONLY AFTER we have received written confirmation from a licenced VS that the cat has been neutered or spayed. 7. We encourage you to contact us if you have questions and will respond in a timely manner. 8. We will not release a kitten, which hasn’t been inoculated twice against at least: Rhinotracheitis, panleukopenia and calicivirus.
7. Diet Your kitten has been brought up on: Applaws is a complete diet supplied in tubs or pouches. You are purchasing a luxury cat and to keep it in the best condition possible, we recommend high quality foods that are not filled with unnecessary additives. You will see we have supplied you with a sachet. NEVER give your kitten MILK unless it is from a Pet store and labeled as kitten milk. Cats cannot tolerate lactose as they cannot digest it properly. 8. Settling In Your new baby kitten will take a few days to come round and feel back to their usual self. They have been used to litter mates jumping on them, playing at all hours of the night and best of all – Mummy! Now with no friends, no mum and being taken to a strange place you new baby will be feeling a bit scared and sorry for itself. Try to put them in a room on their own such as a utility room. Ensure you remove all chemicals and close toilet lids if you decide to place them in their for two weeks. Coax them out, if hiding, with their new feather stick (they all love these) and ball tube toys are also great. We recommend you buy a scratch post, as this is what they are used to playing on and will bring some home familiarities. Your kitten may exhibit stress signs through a funny tummy, sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes and/ or constipation with all the stress of coming to their new home and could have diarrhea for the first week. This should settle down by the first week. As we’ve said above – your cat has been fully tested for everything so if there are any runny bottoms then it will be down to the move or if you have changed their diet. Please ensure you have fresh water available at all times for your new kitten and change twice daily. Once you get your kitten home try and give them some time alone. A couple of days of the various visits to their room will help your kitten realize that everything it okay and there is nothing to be scared of. Once the kitten is settled with you and demonstrates a happiness to see you with purrs, puffy tail and back, along with possibly chatting to you, they are ready to explore the rest of the house. DO keep an eye on them on stairs as they are still babies. Try not to move the litter tray and DO introduce a few more if you have a large house. This may result in confusion and accidents. Your kitten is used to: Wood Litter Pellets. Always introduce other pets to your kitten gradually and ALWAYS supervise. It is natural for your kitten to puff up and growl or spit to show they are defending themselves and your pet may do this also. Try not to intervene heavily and keep a calm, encourage voice telling them it is okay. It CAN take a few MONTHS for your kitten to be fully accepted in a house with pets already there. Animals

do have a hierarchy system and is a natural process for them to let each other know where they belong in that system! Try to be confident and calm as animals do feed off our actions and energy. Try and babyproof your home. We call it Savannah-proofing. They will knock of your favourite ornaments by accident when whizzing around playing, may disappear behind the fridge, squeeze out a window, fall down the toilet (and possibly drown!), eat a plant or flowers, which may be poisonous to cats. Also select good toys which do not have chokable items which could come loose. Please note – we can supply you with cat food, litter, bedding and toys at discounted prices so do get in touch if you require anything. 9.
