Health Guarantee

At Headrick Sphynx Cattery, the health of your new kitten is particularly important to us. We take pride in maintaining healthy and happy cats.

  1. All parents of kittens have been tested for FeLv (Feline Leukemia), and FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus).  All kittens are guaranteed to be free of these diseases at the time of purchase. 
  2. Kittens are guaranteed to be free of PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease).  All of our breeders have been DNA tested through the Veterinary Genetics Laboratory.  We guarantee PKD free for the life of your kitten.
  3. The buyer has 3 business days to have the kitten examined by a licensed veterinarian. You will have 10 business days to send Swanky kitten a copy of the veterinarian’s report.  If we do not receive the vet report within the 10 days, the guarantee will be void.  You should set up a veterinary appointment in advance before your kitten arrives to you.
  4. Your kitten will be up to date on all vaccinations.  You will receive a record of vaccinations given to your kitten.  The buyer is responsible for any further medical costs once the kitten leaves our cattery.  This would include initial vet exam, office visits, vaccinations, surgeries, lab tests, medications, or time off from work.  No medical care will be authorized or be paid by Headrick Sphynx Cattery.
  5. If your veterinarian finds the kitten to have a serious illness you must provide a written statement from your veterinarian within 10 days with his letterhead indicating the illness.  A serious illness means a shortened or painful lifespan.   You may return the kitten to Headrick Sphynx Cattery at the buyer’s expense and you will be offered a replacement kitten of similar quality.
  6. If your kitten dies within one year from the date of purchase due to hereditary or congenital defects, Headrick Sphynx Cattery will replace the cat or kitten with one of similar quality. Headrick Sphynx Cattery must receive proof of the defect in the form of a complete necropsy report at the buyer’s expense and must be done by a licensed veterinarian. Buyer is also responsible for shipping charges. There will be no cash refunds.
  7. Buyer agrees to keep the kitten updated for vet checks, vaccinations, provide clean indoor living environment, feed healthy food, give clean water daily, clean cat boxes, will not abuse, neglect, or mishandle kitten in any way.  Failure to do so will release Headrick Sphynx Cattery from any responsibility regarding this guarantee and will release any requirement to replace kitten under these conditions.

This Health Guarantee is an agreement between buyer and seller and is legal and binding.

If you are picking up your kitten in person, we will sign the Health Guarantee together.  If you are having your kitten shipped, once payment is received in full, two signed copies of our Health Guarantee Contract will be sent to you.  One must be signed and returned to our cattery before we can ship your new kitten. The other copy is for you to keep with your records.
