Once you have selected your kitten/Cat and want to book it, you will be asked to pay a nonrefundable deposit of €200.

At the time of booking, a copy of the contract below will be given to you. You will then have to wait until the kitten is 3 month old.

Ready for collection ! Prepare a nice quiet room for the kitten with bedding, toys, a tray with clumping litter, and away from the litter, a food bowl and water. Come with a basket/pen so the cat can travel safely. The registration papers and health certificate from the veterinary will be handed at that time and a sample of food will be provided. The contract will be completed and then you'll be ready to go home with your new companion !

This is a copy of the contract that must be signed when purchasing a Wild Waters Bengal Cattery kitten or cat. This contract is designed to protect the buyer, the seller, and the welfare of the kitten or cat. Make sure you read it before collection and that you agree with it.

The Seller also warranties that the kitten is free of the feline leukemia virus (FeLV), feline infectious peritonitis (FIP), and the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) at the time of purchase.
2. If during the life of the kitten described above a congenital or hereditary defect appears that is impairing or lethal within three years of the date of purchase, the Seller will replace the cat with a cat or kitten of similar or better quality or refund all or part of the purchase price, at the discretion of the Seller. In case of death, to determine if it was caused by a congenital or hereditary defect, the Seller must receive proof of the defect in the form of a complete autopsy report, completed by a licensed veterinarian and performed at the Buyer's expense. The Seller will make every attempt to replace the cat with a kitten of similar or better color, marking, and quality.
3. The Seller will have completed all of the age-appropriate vaccinations, worming, and neuter/spay (for kittens not purchased as breeders). A copy of the kitten's health record will be given to the buyer at the time of purchase. If the Buyer chooses to inoculate for feline infectious peritonitis (FIP), the warranty is invalidated.
4. In addition, the Seller will not warranty the kitten against any adverse reactions to future vaccinations.
5. If this kitten/cat is found to have be neglected by the buyer, in ill health for an unreasonable length of time or if the Purchaser does not abide by the terms of this contract, the Purchaser will surrender said cat/kitten to Seller unconditionally.
6. The Seller will give the Buyer the kitten's pedigree and TICA or GCCFI registration form(s) at the time of purchase or in a timely manner. The Kitten/Cat's litter will be registered with one or both of these associations, and the Buyer may use this form to register their Kitten/Cat individually. This low cost individual registration fee is the responsibility of the Buyer.

BUYER OBLIGATIONS

1. In order to validate this warranty, the Buyer must take the kitten to a veterinarian within 72 hours, at the Buyer's expense. The Buyer must notify the Seller of any claim under the warranty immediately. Any necessary treatment or other expenses must be authorized by the Seller prior to treatment.

The kitten may be returned to the Seller within seven days for a full refund or exchange for a new kitten, if available. The Buyer will be responsible for any shipping and handling costs. The Seller will make every attempt to replace the kitten with a kitten of the same gender, color, and markings, of similar or better quality.
3. The Buyer agrees to provide the cat with a clean, pleasant environment, conducive to good health and with adequate space for exercise. At least one litter box will be provided for each cat in the household and will be cleaned daily.
