Kitten Sales Contract

Our Siberian kittens are sold under conditions outlined below. This contract applies to kittens/cats purchased at Siberiada cattery only and may differ from contracts offered in other catteries. You can also download our kitten contract in PDF format.

Note: We reserve the right to refuse a sale to anyone. If we feel the need to execute that right after a kitten was already reserved, we will refund a $100 reservation fee (non-refundable in most other cases).

Conditions of Sale

  1. The kitten/cat will be altered before the age of 8 months. Upon the Breeder's receipt of veterinarian's verification of altering, the Buyer will be provided with CFA registration papers.
  2. The kitten/cat will not be mistreated, and will have fresh food, water and a clean litter box at all times. The kitten/cat will receive frequent and kind human attention. The kitten/cat will be provided with scratching post or/and cardboard scratchboard, as well as with plenty of toys.
  3. The kitten/cat will receive yearly veterinary examination to include any care needed to maintain the ongoing good health of this animal. The kitten/cat will not be denied veterinary care at any time.
  4. The kitten/cat will not be allowed outside except on a leash (under close supervision), or in a completely enclosed run. The kitten/cat will not be caged, or kept in an unsuitable room, basement or garage.
  5. The kitten/cat will not be declawed.
  6. The Buyer will not, under any circumstances, give, sell, or lease the kitten/cat to any animal shelter, research facility, laboratory, pet store, or other commercial or noncommercial enterprise. In the event that the Buyer can no longer keep the kitten/cat, the Breeder will be contacted immediately as a first option to assist in the placement of the animal.
  7. If this kitten/cat is found to be neglected or mistreated, the Buyer will surrender said kitten/cat to the Breeder or the Breeder's representative unconditionally.

Health Guarantee

  1. The Breeder guarantees the kitten/cat to be healthy at the time of sale (to the best of our knowledge), FeLV/FIV-negative, and free from any life threatening illnesses, infections, internal and external parasites, ear mites, fleas and ringworm. This guarantee is valid for 14 days from the date of purchase. During this period of time, the kitten/cat should not be exposed to any ill animals (doing so will void this health guarantee).
  2. The Breeder recommends the Buyer to take the kitten/cat to their own veterinarian (at Buyer's expense) within the first 72 hours for their own satisfaction and protection. If the vet feels that the animal is ill and that the illness was present prior to sale, the Breeder should be contacted at once, before any major treatment is begun (except in an emergency situation). The Breeder will (upon receipt of a statement from the examining veterinarian that the illness was present prior to sale) pay the cost of the medical treatment (up to the purchase price of the animal). If the kitten/cat should die from a problem present prior to sale, the Breeder will either replace the animal with one of an equal quality, or refund the purchase price. The total liability of the Breeder shall in no case exceed the purchase price listed on the first page of this contract.
  3. The Breeder guarantees against the death of the kitten/cat due to genetic defects for one year from the date of purchase (FeLV, FIV, and FIP are not genetic and are specifically excluded). In the unlikely event of death of this kitten/cat due to genetic abnormalities (proof is to be provided to the Breeder in the form of a detailed autopsy report and a letter written by a licensed veterinarian stating the exact cause of death, and including the description of the kitten/cat's date of birth, name, sex, color and pattern), the Breeder will replace kitten/cat with one of the equal quality (if available) or refund the Buyer's purchase price.
  4. Health guarantee will not be honored if ownership changes.

Return Policy

  1. The Breeder agrees to accept the kitten back and refund the purchase price excluding deposit (deposit is not refundable) if within 14 days the Buyer finds that allergy reactions make it impossible to keep the kitten/cat.
  2. If the kitten/cat is returned to the cattery between 15 and 30 days after the date of purchase, the Breeder will refund $250 only.
  3. If at any time after the first 30 days the Buyer can no longer take care of the kitten/cat, the Breeder agrees to accept the kitten/cat back without an obligation to refund the purchase price.


The Buyer's signature indicates that the Buyer has reviewed and discussed this contract with the Breeder prior to receiving said kitten/cat, and is in a full agreement and approval of the above terms and conditions.
