12. Initial Examination and Treatment of Your Kitten
Upon receipt of your kitten, the kitten must be taken, within 48 business hours from the moment of the delivery or the pickup of the kitten from our physical store to a licensed veterinarian for an initial wellness physical exam. During this wellness physical examination, a stool analysis (evaluation for internal parasites) shall be required to be performed, and the same shall be performed solely at your expense. For the purposes of these TOS, parasites such as giardia or coccidian shall be deemed to be maintenance conditions (“Maintenance Conditions”). It is estimated that roughly 80% of all kittens get giardia or coccidia. Company shall in no way be liable nor responsible for any costs associated with the treatment of any Maintenance Conditions of your kitten. If the kitten is found to be infected with a parasite such as giardia or coccidian, you hereby understand, acknowledge, and agree that any and all costs associated with the treatment thereof, shall be your sole responsibility and that the Company shall not be liable for the coverage of such costs, or for any portion thereof. Parasites are relatively inexpensive to treat and can usually be cleared through the implementation of simple oral deworming treatments, typically given once a day for 3 to 7 days. Deworming throughout the life
of your kitten is considered common health maintenance and any costs associated therewith shall be your sole responsibility. We suggest that you take your kitten to a licensed vet at least once a year for a wellness exam.
Your kitten will be delivered up to date with shots and therefore you should not vaccinate your new kitten within the first ten (10) days. This will help prevent over-vaccinating your kitten. You understand and acknowledge that kittens that are prone to hip and patella-related issues require special attention to feeding and exercising. You hereby agree that you will not overfeed and or over-exercise during the standard infant growth period.
The 48 business hours window afforded to you in order to have the kitten seen for its initial wellness physical exam shall exclude weekends and holidays, and the examination may be performed by a licensed veterinarian of the consumer’s choosing, so long as the veterinarian is sufficiently, currently, and actively licensed in the state or province in which the examination shall be performed, and so long as such licensing remains in good standing up through the actual occurrence of the examination. If the veterinarian certifies in writing that, at the time of sale, the cat was unfit for purchase due to a congenital or hereditary disorder, you shall be afforded the right to return the animal and receive a refund of the purchase price, which shall include any sales tax paid thereon, but shall exclude any and all veterinary costs related to the examination or the certification that the kitten was unfit for sale. You must immediately notify the Company within 2 business days of the licensed veterinarian’s determination that the animal was unfit for sale, and any failure to do so shall result in the barring and loss of your right and/or ability to receive a refund.
Upon the initial receipt of your kitten, in the event that you determine something is wrong with your kitten, please call +1 (786) 657-6510 IMMEDIATELY, as we may be able to provide simple home remedies as an alternative to veterinary care. In the event of a true emergency, you are hereby advised to take the kitten directly to an emergency vet hospital. Upon making the election to take your kitten to the emergency vet hospital, we strongly recommend calling the number above while you are on your way, in order to ensure that no affordable alternative options exist. In the event that you do elect to take your kitten to the emergency vet hospital, you hereby understand, acknowledge, and agree that you shall be solely responsible for any and all costs associated therewith. Sometimes the Company may be able to provide a simple at-home remedy over the phone, which can save you a cost of hundreds, if not thousands, in veterinary bills. Early detection is extremely important in preventing the development of serious health complications in your kitten.
Eye Color. Cats are born with their eyes closed. But their eyes open at the age of approximately 2 weeks to reveal blue-colored eyes. Only a small percentage of cats keep this blue eye color. Most cats’ eyes gradually change color, with the most common colors being green, yellow, hazel, and golden brown. Blue eyes have virtually no melanin present, as young kittens don’t produce a lot of melanin. But as they grow and age, the kitten’s body produces more melanin, triggering the eye color change, which occurs around 4 weeks of age and progresses until about 10 weeks of age. Some common blue-eyed cat breeds are Siamese, Himalayans, Ragdolls, Bengals, the Cornish Rex, the Tonkinese, the Javanese, and colorpoint Persians. Among domestic long hair and domestic shorthair cats, those with white hair tend to be most apt to have blue eyes. A kitten with a picture of blue eyes may not keep this color. Likewise, it is not a reason for refund or chargeback if your kitten’s eyes change color.
Cat Coat Color. Please take note that in many breeds of cats, such as Siamese, Himalayan, and other Oriental cats, the color of cat fur is determined by the temperature of their skin. The skin is cooler at the body’s extremities — feet, tail, and ears/face — which is why they have white or cream-colored bodies and darker “points.” As such, it is normal that a cat’s coat changes color. It should further be noted that, besides temperature, sun, nutrition, and age can change a color’s coat. The cat might have a picture with a lighter or darker coat in the pictures than when it arrives. This is normal and not a reason for refund or chargeback. As such, patters of the coat, and shading might also change. This is normal and is not a reason for a refund or chargeback.
13. Guarantee on Your Kitten
Unless otherwise disclaimed with respect to a particular kitten, all kittens purchased through our Site or Service shall be sold with a 12-month guarantee (“Guarantee”). The Guarantee shall be subject to the following terms:
First 6 Months: You shall be entitled to a 100% credit of the base price of the kitten in the event that the kitten passes away due to any genetic or hereditary defect. (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 Company 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, pattern, and microchip number)
Second 6 Months: You shall be entitled to receive a 50% credit of the base price of the kitten in the event that the kitten passes away due to any genetic or hereditary defect. Credits made payable to you under the terms of this provision shall not be made in the form of a monetary return, but instead shall be strictly limited to store credits which may be used towards the purchase of another kitten or other supplies through our Site, Service, or in our physical store. The base price of the kitten refers strictly to the cost of the kitten and shall not include the price of shipping or any other costs or fees associated with the Services. This Guarantee shall NOT afford you the right to receive an actual monetary refund from Company for the guaranteed amount.
In the event of death, significant injury, or severe abnormality of your kitten, discovered within the Guarantee period of your kitten’s life, you must: Call Company immediately and inform Company of such at +1(786) 657-6510 Retain possession of the kitten at all times (unless required to be released by any state or local law enforcement official such as Animal Control or a Humane Officer).
Any and all Guarantee requests from users shall be subject to the Company’s review, and shall be subject to Company’s approval, which may be withheld in Company’s sole discretion. It is your sole responsibility to document any and all wellness checks or other forms of treatment received by your kitten, as the same will be required and requested by Company prior to the performance of a Guarantee review. When seeking to obtain such credits through the terms of this provision, a valid certificate of death with the exact cause of death from a licensed pathologist shall be required and must be provided to Company for review, before any such Guarantees shall be approved. When seeking to make a claim with Company under the terms of this provision, you shall first make an appointment for a general exam with a licensed veterinarian. If the veterinarian finds no obvious signs of death, including but not limited to blunt trauma, broken ribs, burn marks in the mouth, or any obstructions in the throat, you thereby agree to take the kitten to a licensed pathologist and have the pathologist perform a gross and micro necropsy, and the same shall be performed at your sole expense. Without a conclusive determination for the cause of death by a licensed pathologist, the buyer understands that this Guarantee shall be denied by Company, within Company’s sole discretion. Additionally, you hereby agree and consent to the provision of access to the medical records of your kitten, to Company. In the case of a determination of severe knee, elbow, or hip dysplasia found within the first 30 days of possession by a licensed veterinarian, a 100% credit of the base price of the kitten will be offered towards the purchase of another kitten from Company’s Site, Service, or physical store. According to veterinary practice (https://www.iowaveterinaryspecialties.com/student-scholars/feline-infectious-peritonitis), the incubation period for feline coronavirus infections to be developed into clinical FIP is six (6) weeks. The buyer understands that Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) is a viral disease of cats caused by certain strains of a virus called the feline coronavirus. The coronavirus is as common in cats as the common cold is in humans and is normally not dangerous at all. Cats infected with coronavirus generally do not show any symptoms and it resolves itself just like the common cold. However, in a small percentage of cats infected with the coronavirus, either by mutation or an anomaly of the immune response, the infection progresses into clinical FIP. Once a cat develops clinical FIP the disease is progressive and almost always fatal. There is no definitive tool for detecting FIP in live cats at this time and there is no cure. Just because a cat tests positive for coronavirus it does not mean that it has or ever will develop FIP. Because the coronavirus is so prevalent in domestic cats it Is impossible to guarantee against it or FIP. HOWEVER, as a courtesy Interpets will cover your new kitten for 6 (six) weeks from the date of delivery, against death due to FIP if the diagnosis is confirmed by a licensed vet by necropsy. In this unfortunate event, Interpets agrees to replace the kitten with one of equal value as soon as one becomes available.
Exclusion to Guarantee: Cats are most commonly affected by a type of heart disease known as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, in which the walls of the heart thicken and do not pump blood effectively. This can lead to heart failure. This type of heart disease can be found in cats of any age and because it is more common among some cat breeds than others, there may be a genetic predisposition for your kitten to succumb to the same. As such, the Company hereby expressly excludes any deaths resulting from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy disease, from being eligible for credits from this Guarantee, for the following breeds:
Sphynx, Elf, Bambino
Additional Exclusions to Guarantee: Company shall not be liable for, and any Guarantee requests to cover any of the following conditions or ailments, shall be denied by the Company:
Allergic reactions to cat food, grains, grass or environment, and or any other human condition, failure to use a litter box, cherry eye, hypoglycemia, cancer, or low-grade heart murmurs, retained baby teeth, or any non-lifestyle changing cosmetic genetic abnormalities. FIV/FeLV, FIP, Ringworm Vaccinations, and declawing of paws will void any health guarantee. Recent research has shown that the feline leukemia vaccine is ineffective and may cause a cat who receives it to contract the disease.
You hereby acknowledge that purchasing a kitten is a responsibility that entails maintaining the health of the kitten. Frequent vet visits; proper feeding of good nutrition, vitamin supplements, and the cost thereof should be expected. You understand that vet bills including but not limited to viral illness, hip issues, patella issues, cancer, spaying/neutering, undescended testes, flea control, and/or any other condition which may result from or be required to keep a kitten healthy is a financial commitment and is your sole responsibility to pay at time of service unless otherwise covered by applicable laws or regulations. Failure to provide physical documented proof of proper care including invoices to regular wellness exams, vaccinations, and other similar treatments, shall void this Guarantee, as the determination to issue such a guarantee remains within Company’s sole discretion. The Company encourages you to spay or neuter your kittens. This kitten is being sold as a companion animal and not for commercial breeding purposes. The Company cannot guarantee the temperament of the kitten, as a bad temperament can be a result due to improper socialization, discipline, and or training.
It is your sole responsibility to cover and pay any and all veterinarian medical bills at the time of the receipt of such services. When seeking to file a claim with the Company pursuant to the terms of this provision, please follow the claim instructions on the Company’s Guarantee page for covered ailments or conditions. The Company hereby retains the right to obtain a second opinion on the cause of the kitten death or ailment, at the Company’s vet of choice.
Upon the approval of a claim under the terms of this provision, in the event that you fail to select and arrange for pickup or delivery, a replacement kitten within 30 days of the Company’s offering, the Company shall have no further obligation to fulfill the same, and you thereby agree to release the Company from any further or future claims pertaining thereto.
You hereby understand, acknowledge, and agree that this Guarantee does not cover any
condition that may result from injury or neglect. This Guarantee does not cover the buyer’s existing pet(s) for parasites or viral illnesses that may have been contracted by the new kittens. The Company shall in no way be responsible nor liable if your landlord, spouse, current pet, or any other individual disapproves of the kitten.
Pursuant to Florida Statute, Section 828.29(6), a consumer may sign a waiver relinquishing his or her right to return the dog or cat for congenital or hereditary disorders. Pursuant to Florida Statute, Section 828.29(6), you affirmatively agree and forever relinquish the rights and remedies you have Under Section 828.29, colloquially known as “Pet Lemon Laws.”
As such, you have 48 normal business hours, excluding weekends and holidays, in which to have the animal examined by a licensed veterinarian of your choosing. The veterinarian must certify that, at the time of sale, the kitten was unfit for purchase due to a congenital or hereditary disorder. Only at that instance, does the right of return trigger. An animal may not be determined unfit for sale on account of an injury sustained or illness contracted after the consumer takes possession of the animal. A veterinary finding of intestinal or external parasites is not grounds for declaring a dog or cat unfit for sale unless the animal is clinically ill because of that condition.
If any section of this agreement conflicts with this section. This section shall govern.
We reserve the discretion of contesting any demand for veterinary expenses, refund, or exchange made by you. We may, at our sole discretion, require you to produce the animal for examination by a licensed veterinarian designated by us. Upon such examination, if we are unable to reach an agreement that constitutes one of the options set forth in subsection (5) or subsection (6) of Florida Statute, Section 828.29 within 10 business days following receipt of the animal for such examination, you may initiate an action in a court of competent jurisdiction to recover or obtain reimbursement of veterinary expenses, refund, or exchange.
14. Shipping of Your Kitten
For users seeking to have their kitten delivered, rather than picking their kitten up from our physical store location, once the kitten is approved for travel, the kitten will typically ship within 2-14 days of the date of the agreement, but this shipping window is subject to change within Company’s sole discretion. Sometimes a kitten may need further medical attention before shipping, and therefore delays in the shipping window may be incurred. The final decision of the shipping date for the kitten will be made by a veterinarian of the Company’s choosing, with the health of the kitten being the sole priority, and thereby a possible reason for any shipping delays. The delivery of the kitten shall be arranged through third-party vendors of the Company’s choosing. Other common reasons for delivery delays may include but not limited to, the weather, mechanical failures of ground or air transportation, or any other unforeseen circumstances, and therefore the ultimate shipping date shall remain at the Company’s sole discretion. The Company shall not be responsible for any inconvenience, loss, costs or any other damages incurred by you as a result of such delays in delivery of the kitten.
