If, within one year from the date of purchase, the cat is found to suffer from any hereditary or congenital defect, or preexisting medical condition which causes death within one year from the date of purchase, the breeder will replace the cat with another cat of equal or better quality only if the cat received the proper medical treatment in a timely fashion to try to save the cat's life and this treatment is confirmed by written statement from a veterinarian and provided to the breeder. The breeder must review all licensed veterinary certified reports and all certified licensed pathologist autopsy reports. A replacement kitten may be chosen from the list of available kittens on the website or from any future litter. This guarantee is limited to replacement and shall not cover veterinary fees, shipping charges or other extraordinary expenses. This guarantee becomes null and void is the cat receives any type of elective surgery such as declawing or any similar medical procedure, during the one year time period.
