Purchase Amount: $1500.00 (See below)
This contract is valid under the following conditions:
A deposit of $300.00 is required for purchase. This is a non-refundable deposit, which means if the purchaser should decide to not continue with the purchase of the kitty, they forfeit their deposit. Once we are contacted that you are sending your deposit we put the kitten on hold for 7 days. If the deposit is not received within 7 days we will advertise the kitten as still available.
At 8 weeks an additional payment of $300.00 is due.
The balance of $900.00 is due when your kitten is picked up or delivered.
We do accept PayPal, but you are responsible for the fees. We also accept cash, Cashier?s checks, and money orders.
Oklahoma Sphynx guarantees the kitty to be in good health at the time of purchase for a period of 48 hours. A feline health record will be provided at time of purchase. We use Scroggins Animal Clinic in Moore, Oklahoma and have Dr. Trena Brazer see all of our kitten care. When you receive your kitten you will receive health records showing vaccinations and deworming, spay/neuter, and microchip information. It will be the responsibility of the purchaser to have the kitty examined by a veterinarian within 48 hours. Within that 48 hour period, if found to be seriously medically deficient Oklahoma Sphynx will take the kitty back with proper documentation from a licensed Veterinarian as to the medical issue. The purchaser may return this cat /kitten for a refund of the purchase price, less the reservation fee and any shipping charges. Cat/kitten must be returned within 7 days of receipt. After the 48 hour period, the seller can no longer guarantee the cat/kitten?s health, except for birth defects.
Oklahoma Sphynx provides 30 days of free Health Insurance through Trupanion. We provide the Certificate of Insurance to you when you get your baby. You must activate the policy within 24 hours of your baby coming home for it to take effect. If you do not activate the Pet Health Insurance this contract will become null and void. It is of no cost to you, but could save your kitten?s life in the event of an emergency.
Seller assumes no liability or responsibility for any veterinary care for this cat/kitten after buyer takes possession of said cat kitten. Under no circumstances will Oklahoma Sphynx be responsible for any veterinary bills incurred by the purchaser.
Oklahoma Sphynx guarantees the cat/ kitten against lethal genetic or congenital defects for 6 months following the date of purchase. If during these 6 months the cat/ kitten should die or have to be euthanized due to a genetic or congenital defect, Oklahoma Sphynx will replace the cat/kitten with a cat/kitten of their choice and at their earliest convenience. The buyer must provide a Necropsy by a licensed impartial Veterinary Pathologist starting the cause of death is unquestionably a genetic or congenital defect. There is a Pathology Department at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma if this ever occurs and a Pathologist is required.
This cat/kitten is not guaranteed against respiratory disease, fleas, ringworms or any nuisance disease. Upper Respiratory Infections can be a common occurrence when the stress of moving from one home to another or when shipping.
This kitten is being sold with no breeding rights and will be altered before leaving.. WE NO LONGER SELL UNALTERED KITTENS TO OTHER BREEDING HOMES OR SELL ON A SPAY/NEUTER AGREEMENT! KITTENS WILL NOT LEAVE WITHOUT THE SPAY/NEUTER PERFORMED BY OUR VET! DO NOT ASK FOR SPECIAL CONSIDERATION...THIS IS OUR POLICY TO PROTECT OUR KITTENS!
Under NO circumstances shall this kitty be de-clawed. I have had people try to get around this by wanting to have the laser declawing done. It is still an amputation and cruel and something we do not allow.
Under NO circumstances shall this kitty be permitted to live outdoors.
New kitty should be confined to a private room, with plenty of toys and human contact until accustomed to his/her new surroundings.
We feed Royal Canin dry and will send home some with you. We also feed a raw diet to promote our kitten?s health and growth. There are plenty of recipes for raw on the internet, but for most single kitty homes a commercially sold formula may be easier. We have great success with it and our cats love it! Please be careful when taking your new kitty home not to change his/her diet too much causing an upset stomach.
The purchaser agrees that under NO circumstances will the kitty EVER be sold or given to a pet shop, animal shelter, research laboratory, or similar facility. Should the purchaser for any reason including death, not be able to keep the above kitty, Oklahoma Sphynx has the FIRST option to help place the kitty in a new home. This request is made to avoid one of our kittens ending up in a home that is not ideal. We feel a lifelong commitment to the kittens we bring into this world.
All travel expenses and shipping will be paid by the purchaser. I do ship weather permitting from Will Rogers International Airport in Oklahoma City. Of course, we love to meet our new kitty parents and welcome you to our home or will gladly meet within two hours (each way) of Oklahoma City. Any additional mileage will be at the expense of the new adoptive parents. When shipping is requested our flat rate for shipping is $350.00. This covers the cost of the crate, Health Certificate for out of state travel, and transport to the airport. Shipping to Canada is possible, but shipping is slightly higher.
If you are close enough to avoid shipping and shipping charges, but not ready to drive all the way to our home delivery is available within reason. We travel to Dallas, Texas, Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Wichita, Kansas for a flat fee of $100.00 because we travel to those cities often. Any other location is a flat fee of $100.00 when travelling within 100 miles each way of Oklahoma City. Any distance beyond 100 miles will be assessed at an additional .50 a mile each way.
It is understood that with the Sphynx breed hairlessness will vary from kitty to kitty due to hormones, climate, and genetics. It is important for the purchaser to understand it is impossible to guarantee complete hairlessness for the life of the kitty. It is possible for the said kitty to develop some hair especially after being spayed/neutered or as it grows older. This hair is specific to the tail, feet and ears.
Any legal action which may arise under the terms of this contract will be brought to Oklahoma County, Oklahoma. The new owner shall be liable for all expenses in the amount of purchase of kitty, shipping expenses, associated veterinary expenses, costs resulting from litigating this contract, and any damages caused to the reputation of Oklahoma Sphynx Cattery. This document is a legally binding contract. In signing this document the new owner acknowledges he/she read and fully understands and agrees to ALL of the terms and conditions stated above.
