Kotickee will guarantee the health of a new kitten for seventy-two hours after leaving (excluding weekends). If a veterinarian examines the kitten within that period and finds that it is deficient in genetic make up such that it will be prevented from functioning as a companion pet, it may be returned. A sign veterinarian statement of such must be supplied. At our choice it will be replaced for another or a refund will be issued. Veterinary charges assumed during this period will be the responsibility of the new owner. Any shipping charges incurred will not be refunded or covered by Kotickee in the case of a replacement

A $400 good faith deposit is required of all purchasers who will not take immediate possession. This deposit will be applied to the balance due and is not refundable. It maybe however, transferred to the next available kitten of the purchaser’s choice.

The new owner agrees to provide a loving, safe and healthy environment for the Devon. The kitten will be maintained as a completely inside feline. It will be fed a premium food such as Iams. It will be altered at an acceptable age as determined by the new owner’s veterinarian. Yearly veterinarian examinations and vaccinations should be followed. The Devon should be kept free of parasites both internal and external.
If the owner becomes unable to keep the Devon, he should make every effort to relocate him in a similar and acceptable home. If this deems not possible he can be returned to Kotickee. Under no circumstances should he be placed in a shelter or pound.
