Welcome to the select few who have the joy of owning one of the world’s most lovable creatures. We at Free Range we put our cat’s needs first and we hope you to do the same.

This is a sampling of our contract.

* Three sets of Infant vaccinations against rhinotracheitis,
calicivirus, feline distemper (panleukopenia).

Free Range requires a $400 deposit per kitten/cat, which is non-refundable to reserve kitten/cat. This deposit will go towards the total agreed upon price. Payments are to be made in the form of PayPal, Money Order, bank issued Cashier’s Check, or Cash – Payable to Angela Orton. Absolutely no personal checks accepted.  

Payments made by PayPal will include 3% PayPal processing fee. (Example: On a $400 deposit, the Paypal fee is $12.00.) PayPal Account: AngelaO@cox.net. If you fail to select the PayPal option that has you pay the fees, the 3% will be added to the balance owed. All final payments must be made before the cat is released to your possession. If you choose to use a money order, please note that a kitten will not be held until the deposit is received.

Kitten can be picked up (no cost), delivered to a half-way point depending on location (usually minimal fee for gas and time), or personally flown to the nearest airport. Buyer is responsible for deliver fees incurred in getting your kitten to you.  Seller will try to secure the most economical mode of transportation that is safe for the kitten. We will fly the kitten to you, utilizing the most economical airfare. Buyer may use their own airline miles if they want us to fly to them for little cost.

This cat or kitten is to be of sound health upon arrival. It is guaranteed for a period of 72 hours if vet checked within that time or contract will be in breach. It is recommended that the new cat be kept in quarantine during that time.  If it is found to be medically deficient with and untreatable or life threatening congenital defect, buyer must notify the seller immediately with a letter/fax from the examining veterinarian. Upon its return, it will be replaced with another cat/kitten; if one is not available the buyer will be placed first on a waiting list.

Kitten will be spayed or neutered prior to placement unless it's been adopted as a breeder. We only adopt out to specific breeders that have a like-minded breeding program.

It is understood that degrees in hairlessness in Sphynx, Elf, Dwelf and Bambino vary from cat to cat and that no feline is completely hairless.  Fur on the tail, feet and face, back of ears is common.  Furthermore, it is understood that hormones and genetics play an important role in hairlessness and that even though a kitten may be almost hairless when sold it is possible said kitten could develop some hair after being neutered/spayed or as it grow older.  

Cat/kitten will be kept as a loved member of the family.  Cat/kitten will not be caged as a primary living arrangement, i.e. other than for transportation or illness.  

If for reasons other than the animal’s health you cannot retain ownership of the cat/kitten, the breeder will be given the right of first refusal as a surrender.  No kitten/cat from this Cattery may be sold privately, given to an animal shelter, sold or given to a pet store, abandoned, or sold or given to a laboratory for experimental purposes.

Seller is not responsible for any vet bills incurred once kitten/cat is in the buyer’s possession.  Upon its arrival, buyer needs to take said kitten/cat to be checked by their qualified licensed Veterinarian, within 3 days (72hours).  The seller cannot be held accountable for diagnosis of infections, giarida, parasites, or fungus, due to the fact that these can be contracted anywhere in the environment after leaving the cattery, and are not a result of genetics or breeding.

The kitten/cat is guaranteed against congenital defects up until it’s one year old.  Should it die within this time from a congenital defect the kitten/cat will be replaced by one of the same quality and value when next available, only if a necropsy has been preformed and a certificate from your vet is provided as proof of the cause of death.  Necropsy and related fees are responsibility of the buyer.  No veterinary services will be reimbursed and will always be the responsibility of the buyer.

The kitten/cat will not be denied needed veterinary attention.  If the owner is unsure whether or not the animal is in need of medical services, a veterinarian will be contacted, the situation explained, and the veterinarian’s advice will be acted upon.  The kitten/cat will not be allowed outside. This kitten/cat is not to be destroyed for any reason other than terminal illness or injuries approved by a veterinarian. These cats can sunburn or get hypothermia.

If this cat/kitten is going into a multi-pet household the breeder/seller will not be responsible for any illness or vet bills that occur due to the exposure between the cat/kitten and the resident pets.

The kitten/cat will not be de-clawed Initial_____________.  De-clawing is an inhumane mutilation.  It consists of amputation of the first knuckle. It is comparable to the removal of a human fingertip at the first knuckle.  Weekly nail-clippings, gentle discipline along with the availability of a scratching post or mat will eliminate scratching problems.  Soft Claws are an easy solution and a beneficial training aide.

Ear cleaning and baths are recommended as needed, depending on how oily your cat is. It is understood that degrees in hairlessness in Sphynx, Elf, Dwelf and Bambinos vary from cat to cat and that no feline is completely hairless.  Fur on the tail, feet and face, back of ears is common.  Furthermore, it is understood that hormones and genetics play an important role in hairlessness and that even though a kitten may be almost hairless when sold it is possible said kitten could develop some hair after being neutered/spayed or as it grow older.  Reasons include but not limited to: weather and climate, and seasonal and hormonal changes can have a bearing on growth.  It is not guaranteed that your cat will remain hairless.

The kitten/cat will receive frequent and kind human attention.  Please use logic in interacting with any animal; gentle play makes a loving and gentle animal, as rough play can create Monsters!  The kitten will be given the proper diet in the proper amount, and will have fresh water and clean litter boxes available at all times.

If the buyer having put a deposit on a kitten/cat should later change their mind about the purchase, the deposit will not be refunded. If, however, the kitten/cat should die before the buyer picks up his/her kitten/cat, Free Range will replace it with one of equal quality and value. If one is not available, the buyer will be placed first on a waiting list.  If for any reason the buyer needs to find said kitten/cat a new home, seller has first right of refusal to receive the kitten/cat back as a surrender.  There are no monetary refunds.  This right is not time limited, but remains in effect for the life of said kitten/cat.

If this cat or kitten is purchased as a breeder male, purchaser agrees not to resell this cat or kitten for stud to anyone unless approved by the seller.

If this cat/kitten is purchased as a breeder female, purchaser agrees not to resell this cat or kitten for use as a breeder to anyone unless approved by the seller.  Seller makes no guarantees as to the fertility or performance of cats or kittens when purchased for breeding.

If this cat or kitten is purchased as a breeder, purchaser agrees to use good judgment in the breeding, and to always breed for healthy, quality kittens of good temperament, that are a good representation of the breed.
