I encourage you to compare this health guarantee to that of other Russian Blue catteries. This is the best health guarantees you will find! I do this quite simply because my kittens & parents are healthy & come from hardy bloodlines. Majestic Blues is one of the few catteries with a money-back guarantee in case your kitten is found to be unhealthy by a veterinarian within 72 hours. In addition, I also guarantee my kittens against serious congenital & genetic disease for two years!
What is the Majestic Blues Health Guarantee?
First of all, the term "health guarantee" isn't quite proper. Nobody can guarantee that anything living won't get sick. So think of it more as a health warranty. You're investing a lot of time & money in locating & purchasing your cute pedigree Russian Blue kitten. You deserve a reasonable degree of protection!
The Majestic Blues Cattery Health Guarantee consists of two parts:
Part 1 - Protects you from receiving a sick kitten. You must have your kitten examined by a licensed veterinarian within 72 hours of leaving my care. If your veterinarian determines the kitten is ill and/or unfit for sale, you may return the kitten for a full refund of the sale price or opt for a "next available" kitten of your liking.
A few important details: First - I require an original written statement from your veterinarian. Second - I will not reimburse veterinary fees. Third - Kitten shipping fees are non-refundable, however; if you paid to have your kitten shipped, I will pay to have the kitten returned. If a "next-available" kitten is to your satisfaction, I will pay his/her shipping.
Finally, I adhere strictly to the 72 hour time limit. I understand veterinary offices are closed on weekends & holidays, but viruses don't respect office hours. If I extend this time limit, I may end up responsible for a kitten's illness he/she encountered after leaving my very protective & cautious care.
Part 2 - Protects you over the long term from any possible genetic defect or congenital disease. If your cat is diagnosed with a serious genetic defect, or congenital disease before two years of age, I will provide you with a healthy replacement. Depending on the specific condition, I will work with you to decide how to best care for the sick cat.
Examples of conditions that would entitle you to a healthy replacement include; life-threatening heart condition, genetic disease or defect & degenerative nerve disorders. In other words, conditions that effect longevity or the quality of life.
Examples of conditions that would not qualify for replacement are but not limited to; innocent heart murmurs or allergies. In other words, any condition that an otherwise healthy cat can live with & still live a happy quality of life, or a condition that is treatable.
In general, I would accept a veterinarian's opinion of what constitutes a serious defect, but may require a second opinion which would be obtained at my expense. No refund will be issued if there is obvious neglect; the kitten has been declawed, or if there are any violations of the Sales Agreement. If I cannot offer a healthy replacement within six months or I am no longer operating my cattery. I will refund the original purchase price of the kitten, not including delivery.
