Kittens and cats are living creatures and as such they may become injured, or ill at any point of time in their life. The Buyer agrees to provide health care for the lifetime of this pet, and is prepared to cover all the costs associated with the cat’s health and wellbeing. If a cat is diagnosed with illness, the owner is responsible for providing the necessary care for the animal; however, the breeder would like to be informed of the cat’s health status.
