Our Cats - Health Guarantee Buying a Kitten or Cat

Boulder Bengals is committed to raising beautiful, healthy, pedigree pure Bengal kittens to be enjoyed for years.

Our kittens (or older cats) come with up-to-date/age-appropriate immunizations, prior veterinarian examinations and are guaranteed to be of sound health at the time of sale, and for a period of 72 hours.

First 72 hours

Please have the kitten examined by a certified veterinarian within 72 hours of the kitten arriving at Buyers home. Please note that failure to do this will render all guarantees null and void.

If the kitten is found to be ill during this 72 hour period, it must be reported immediately, with confirmation from a certified veterinarian. If the condition is treatable, contact us. Boulder Bengals reserves the right to authorize reimbursement for reasonable and customary veterinary medical charges from your vet, have the kit treated with a veterinarian of our choice, or return/replacement of Kitten as described below.

If the kitten is found to be medically deficient with an un-treatable, life-threatening condition, steps will be taken to provide for the return of the kitten. Upon the return/demise of the ill kitten, a replacement kitten of equal value will be provided as soon as nature permits, we hope/work to make this happen within 6 months.

Fourteen (14) day isolation

The kitten must be kept indoors at all times except as allowed in the Terms & Conditions for Adoption. The new kitten must be isolated from other pets, especially other cats, for not less than 14 days. Our kittens are examined and free of communicable disease while here. Any infectious disease would have time to manifest itself in the new kitten, or other pets, before they are introduced. Please note that failure to do this will render all guarantees null and void.

Congenital Defects

Our kittens are guaranteed against fatal congenital defects for one year. Should the kitten die or become terminally ill as a result of a congenital defect within the first year of it's life, the kitten will be replaced with another of equal value as soon as nature permits, hopefully within 6 months. Replacement is dependent upon the return or demise of the kitten (see below) and return/transfer of all original registration documentation (ie, TICA, not copies).

DEMISE

In the event of death due to birth or genetic defects, verification can ONLY be with a certified veterinarian's certificate of necropsy and cause of death, and certification of specific congenital illness or defect resulting in death.

Limited Liability

The liability of Boulder Bengals and its owners is limited to a replacement kitten, or veterinarian fees as described above. Health guarantee does not include typical non-fatal occurances of vision/hearing or knee defects, age-related ailments, or environmental issues like ringworm, fleas, giardia. Kittens are seen by a licensed veterinarian for early signs of any of the above prior to sale. After the first 72 hours, we do not pay veterinarian fees of any kind. All liability expires when the kitten is one year of age (adult).

Exclusions

Expressly excluded from this guarantee is accidental death, a widespread feline epidemic, non-fatal occurances of vision/hearing or knee defects, age-related ailments, or environmental issues like ringworm, fleas, giardia.
