Welcome to the select few who have the joy of owning one of the world’s most lovable creatures. We at NoCoatKitty put our cat’s needs first; we want you to do the same!

The seller and buyer agree to the following

NoCoatKitty uses ONLY Merial Pure Vax 3 to vaccinate their kittens and cats. If you choose to vaccinate with any other vaccines you do so at your own risk and contract will be null and void.  FIP and FeLV vaccines are NOT RECOMMENDED.  If buyer vaccinates for FIP or FeLV contract will be null and void.  There are links on my website that explain why these vaccines are DANGEROUS! Please also take the time to read all my links on vaccinations (they are located on the side of my HOME page on my website). Over vaccinating  has many harmful and sometimes even deadly consequences.

MAKE SURE TO ASK YOUR VET IF THEY USE KETAMINE AS AN ANESTHESIA.  SPHYNX CAN HAVE BAD REACTIONS…EVEN DEATH FROM KETAMINE! ALSO No Matacam pain medication should be given to sphynx.

This kitten is to the best of our knowledge, healthy at the time of sale and has had the following vaccinations and/or tests: SEE HEALTH RECORDS

NoCoatKitty requires a $500 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 form of cash, Postal Money Order,  credit card, paypal, or Cashier Check-Payable to Tracy Brennan.

Payments made by credit card must be called in.

This cat/kitten is to be of sound health upon arrival.  It MUST be vet checked within 72 hours or contract will be in breach. It is recommended that the new cat be kept in quarantine during this time. If it is found medically deficient with an untreatable or life threatening illness, buyer must notify the seller immediately with 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 waiting list or full refund of kitten. Kitten should also be tested for any parasites at their first vet check and before being exposed to other pets in your home. Though kittens are wormed before leaving it is always possible.

Buyer agrees to have Nocoatkitty’s/Lluvatar’s kitten Spayed or Neutered by 5lbs or 6 months of age which ever comes first, at buyers expense. Papers WILL NOT be released until proof from your vet is provided that the cat/kitten has been sterilized. If cat/kitten is not spayed/neutered by 6 months of age, seller will enforce breach of contract for the maximum dollar amount ($2500 which is the amount that kittens are sold with full rights plus kitten must be returned at buyers expense).  If said Cat/kitten is bred any offspring of this kitten are to be delivered to the breeder as the breeder’s sole property, and the breeder may also reclaim this cat without refund. NoCoatKitty does not give permission to breed said cat/kitten. Kitten is still registered under breeder until proof of spay/neuter. Breeder also has the right to fix any kitten sold as a pet prior to he/she leaving our home.

INITIAL:

WHY FIX YOUR KITTY BY 6 Months? Males unfixed tend to spray! This spraying can ruin your carpet, furniture, and even your walls. Males can also get aggressive and agitated ….Fixing a boy before the age of 6 months will stop him from this behavior ever surfacing.
Females unfixed can develop a serious condition called PYOMETRA…Sphynx are VERY PRONE TO PYO and can even develop it at a young age. The two main hormones produced by the ovaries are estrogen and progesterone.  An excessive quantity of progesterone, or estrogen can cause pyometra.  Cysts can form in the lining of the uterus.  At this point, the condition is called ‘endometrial hyperplasia,’ and generally, the cat will not show signs of disease.  As these cysts containing numerous secretory cells grow, large quantities of fluids are produced and released into the interior of the uterus. Bacteria commonly colonize the uterus by entering through the cervix. This produces an even greater response by the body, as it showers additional fluid and white blood cells into the affected organ.  The condition is then called ‘pyometra.’ The body will attempt to eliminate the problem by carrying the wastes and excess fluid through the bloodstream to the kidneys. However, the amount of material in a cat with pyometra is too great to be eliminated in this fashion, overloading the kidney system. The normal toxins that should be excreted from the body build up, and the animal goes into uremic poisoning. Untreated, she will die from kidney failure.  Sphynx are VERY prone to pyometra… fixing a female before 6 months old will eliminate this problem! Female also spray and mark their territory when not spayed it is not just a male issue we have many girls that spray way worse than boys!

It is understood that the degree in hairlessness in a Sphynx vary from cat to cat and that no feline is completely hairless. Fur on tail, feet, and face is common. Furthermore, it is understood that hormones and genetics play an important roll in hairlessness and that even though a Sphynx kitten may be almost hairless when sold it is possible said kitten could develop some hair after being Spayed/Neutered or as they grow older. Reasons include but not limited to: weather and climate, and hormonal changes can have a bearing on growth.

Cat/kitten will be kept indoors as a loved member of the family. Cat/kitten will not be caged as a primary living arrangement.

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 surrender.  I will take kittens/Cats back at any age if you can no longer keep he/she. Depending on their age and what he/she can be resold for depends on funds that may be returned to you. (Minus non refundable deposit). If kitten/cat is resold to 3rd party it will be breach of contract and legal action will be taken. 

No kitten/cat from this cattery may be sold privately, given to an animal shelter, sold or given to pet store, abandoned, or sold or given to a laboratory for experimental purposes.

Seller is not responsible for any Vet bills incurred once cat/kitten is in buyer’s possession. Upon its arrival, buyer needs to take the said cat/kitten to be checked by their qualified licensed Veterinarian, within 3 days, or contract will be in breach.

The cat/kitten is guaranteed against congenital defects up until it’s 1 year old. Should it die within this time due to a congenital defect the kitten/cat will be replaced by one of the same quality and value when next available, only if necropsy has been preformed and a certificate from your vet is provided as proof of the cause of death. Kitten is guaranteed for 14 days against feline viruses/diseases.

The cat/kitten 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 cat/kitten will not be allowed outside. These cats can get sunburn or get hypothermia.

This cat/kitten is not to be destroyed for any reason other than terminal illness or injuries approved by veterinarian.

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 cat/kitten WILL NOT be de-clawed INITIAL___________. De-clawing is an inhumane mutilation. It consists of amputation of the first knuckle. Weekly nail-clippings, gentle discipline along with the availability of a scratching post or mat will eliminate scratching problems. Many veterinarians do not explain to cat owners what really occurs in a declawing operation. The procedure is essentially ten complex amputations. The cat must remain anesthetized for the entire procedure, increasing operative risk. A cat’s claw is a complex digit. It is not just a fingernail as it is with humans. The nails retract and are actuated by muscles and tendons. By cutting into these, you raise the risk of serious long-term physical and emotion impacts for your cat.Declawed cats in effect are reduced in their ability to gain traction and to walk properly. They have to move with their weight shifted backwards from their natural posture. Claws exist for many reasons:

* To stretch out muscles and spine* To help exercise and stay fit* To provide defense against mistreatment or other animals* To provide traction and grip in all sorts of environments. The consequences of declawing are larger than many people realize. Cat’s behaviors can change. Declawed cats no longer have their primary defense mechanism and turn to biting as default behavior. Physical ailments such as premature arthritis, cystitis, or perennial skin disorders can occur. Bungled surgeries can result in growth of deformed claws or serious infection. Declawing removes the claw immediately above the “extending mechanism.” The joint is cut off and the underlying tendon is cut.  TAKE THE TIME TO TRAIN YOU KITTY.

The cat/kitten will receive frequent and kind human attention. Please use logic in interacting this cat/kitten with other animals or young children.

This cat/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 buyer having put a deposit on a cat/kitten should later change their mind about the purchase for any reason, the deposit will not be refunded.  The purpose of this deposit is to ensure the Purchaser’s intent to buy the kitten named herein. This kitten is being held for the Purchaser and will not be sold to another Buyer unless the Purchaser indicates in writing that he/she has changed his/her mind about the purchase. Any breach of contract, whether verbal, written or through neglect or avoidance to communicate on the Purchaser’s part can jeopardize the chance of finding a suitable home for a kitten or cat as quickly as possible. Therefore; if the Purchaser changes his/her mind about purchasing this kitten for any reason, the DEPOSIT IS NOT REFUNDABLE.  

If buyer is picking up said kitten at Nocoatkitty Cattery  in person balance is due upon pickup. Kitten must be paid in full 1 week prior to delivery. If said kitten was chosen by photos and you were unable to meet  your kitten in person prior to purchase buyer can refuse kitten upon delivery for any reason and nocoatkitty will refund by credit card immediately at location.

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

If this cat/kitten is purchased as a breeder female, purchaser agrees not to resell this cat/kitten for use as a breeder to anyone unless approved by seller.

Seller makes no guarantees as to fertility or performance of cats or kittens when purchased for breeding/showing.

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

CARE FOR NEW KITTY
Eyes:
Sphynx tend to have eye boogers as they do not have eyelashes to protect their eyes from dirt. You may cleanse around their eyes with a warm wet cotton ball or a warm wet wash cloth. If you notice redness, swelling or yellow discharge please see your vet.

Ears: Sphynx will also have a black waxy buildup in their ears. This is again normal for the breed and it is usually NOT ear mites. You may use baby wipes to remove this buildup or an ear cleaner from your local pet store. A small amount of ear cleaner added to the end of a Q-tip will get that wax build up right out. Please avoid harsh cleansers as sphynx may be sensitive and have an allergic reaction to them. Also be careful when using cotton swabs to not push any wax back into the ear canal as this may lead to infection.
Nails: Sphynx should have their nails trimmed and cleaned regularly. When clipping nails be sure to avoid clipping into the pink vein area inside the nail as this causes discomfort to your kitten. You may use a regular toenail clipper for kittens and a cat clipper on adults. Sphynx will get a black waxy buildup on their nails and this is normal for the breed. It works best to clean them with baby wipes or hypoallergenic pet wipes.

Diet: I recommend Purina One Kitten (DRY) and Authority (Wet).  I purchase this food at Pet Smart.
Most high end wet foods are too rich for kittens and cause vomiting/diarrhea DO NOT SWITCH FOOD ABRUPTLY!
Probiotics are a great supplement for your kittens digestive track. I get these at revivalanimal.com. It comes in a powder form and can be mixed with their wet food.

Bath Time!!!! Your sphynx should also be bathed every month. Many breeders recommend weekly baths. The sphynx breed secrete natural oils and this causes dirt to build up and will lead to a stinky baby…so over-bathing could cause more harm than good!!! Baby wipes that do not contain alcohol are great for touch ups.

Vet: Be sure to find a vet who is familiar with the sphynx breed!!! VACCINES: Please be sure to give your kitten Merial vaccines, that do not contain the heavy metals that other vaccines contain. We give the 3 way Purevax from Merial. Never give FIP or FELV vaccines to your kittens and cats. And never give two different vaccines on the same day unless it is a combo vaccine. It is too hard on your little kitten and many cats have had severe reactions to two vaccines given on the same day. FIP vaccines are often time fatal if your cat has ever been exposed to the corona virus, which 90% of cats in a multiple cat household have been exposed. They will break out with the fatal form of FIP if given the vaccine. There is no known treatment for FIP it is fatal. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND YEARLY VACCINES! (Please read links on my home page)

Kitty Litter: When you first bring your baby home it is a good idea to use KITTEN ATTRACT LITTER for the first week or 2 (I get this at Pet smart and it comes in a pink bag). Then gradually switch over to Fresh Step or any litter you wish to use. I use Fresh Step Scoopable Litter here:)
Vomiting & diarrhea: Seek your vet’s counsel immediately for watery stools or vomiting, as kittens can get dehydrated and can die very quickly if not treated promptly!!!! This can come about from an abrupt change in their diets, intestinal infections or poisoning. For cats or kittens with loose stools, it may help to add fiber to the diet, such as Iams hairball formula cat food or use the Science Diet ID formula from your vet. It also helps to boil hamburger and rice, about 2/3 rice to 1/3 hamburger and feed at intervals through out the day until stools firm up or add some canned 100% pumpkin to their soft food.  ProBios are also very good to add to your cat/kittens food as needed. You can purchase it at revivalanimal.com

Upper respiratory: Kittens may stress when shipped or when they are going to a new home. Occasionally they may start to sneeze, cough or have runny sore eyes. If this occurs they should be seen by a vet immediately. A kitten can get very sick, very fast if not treated promptly.  Sphynx do not generally respond to amoxicillin. Please contact your breeder for questions on upper respiratory symptoms.

Teeth: Your kitten may have brown stains on its teeth. This is VERY normal! It is caused from the oils on mommies skin when they are nursing. When their baby teeth fall out the adult teeth will come in pearly white!
