Kitten/Cat Purchase

This kitten/cat is sold only as a pet, with no breeding rights.  All kittens/cats are spayed or neutered before they leave for their new homes and have had their first vaccinations, which are included in the purchase price.  Only under special circumstances will a kitten/cat be available to a registered cattery for inclusion in a breeding programme.  Please contact us for further information.  

Any potential purchaser will be thoroughly vetted before a kitten/cat is placed in their home.  Please keep in mind the love, time, effort and  heartbreak it has taken in raising these precious animals entitles the breeder to want and expect only the best home to keep these precious souls safe and treat them well.  

Health Guarantee
Silverleaf Cattery guarantees the health of the kitten/cat for a period of 48 hours from the time of purchase.  It is thus recommended that your kitten/cat is checked by your veterinarian before the 48 hours period has lapsed.  Should there be any medical problems, please have your veterinarian contact me within the guaranteed period on 082 825 7936 with the details.  Should the kitten/cat be medically unfit or deficient at this time, it may be returned, upon which time it will either be replaced with a kitten/cat of equal value or a refund of the purchase price, excluding any shipping cost, will be given.  Please note, the kitten/cat should be kept separate from any other animals until such time that the kitten/cat has been checked by your veterinarian.  Once the kitten/cat has left Silverleaf Cattery premises, there is no control over any health issues it will be exposed to.  

Please note that any kitten/cat exposed to the following conditions will not be accepted back after the 48 hour period has expired :

a. Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV)
b. Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) which acts in the same way as HIV in humans
c. Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP)
d. Feline Panleukopenia (feline distemper or Feline Infectious Enteritis)
e. Any Communicable Diseases
f. Parasitic Infestation, i.e. fleas, ticks, mites, worms, ringworm

Documentation from your veterinarian as to the health of any animal this kitten/cat has been exposed to would be required before the kitten/cat may be returned.  

A 50% deposit is required to secure a kitten/cat.  Until such deposit is received, Silverleaf reserves the right to continue marketing the kitten. Once a deposit has been received, Silverelaf will cease marketing the chosen kitten/cat and other potential buyers will be turned away.  Please contact me with regards to deposit/payment details.  

Balance of payment is due in cash or via internet payment at the time the kitten/cat leaves the premises of Silverleaf Cattery unless prior arrangements have been made.  No kitten/cat will be released until payment made via internet banking has been confirmed in the Silverleaf bank account. Please note, internet payments take up to two days to clear. Unfortunately payment via credit card cannot be accepted as no such facility is available at Silverleaf Cattery.  

Silverleaf Cattery will ship kittens/cats under certain circumstances.  Should this be required, all costs related to the shipment will be the responsibility of the purchaser.  This includes airfare, airline approved cat carrier, soft bedding, toys, health certificate and any related documentation or activities specified by Government legislation, airline carrier and/or purchaser.  Once the animal has been accepted by the airline, the airway bill number will be communicated to the purchaser, who guarantees that he/she would be at the destination airport to collect the animal as it is disembarked from the airline.

Silverleaf Cattery will not be held responsible for animals lost or stolen after acceptance by the transportation carrier.  It is the responsibility of the purchaser to file a claim with the carrier with regards lost, damaged or delayed shipments, discrepancy in the number of cats shipped and received, as well as mortality.
