You just bought a new Siberian kitten and your Health Guarantee requires you to have your new kitten examined by a vet within 48-72 hours upon arrival. If you’re wondering why continue reading!
Reputable breeders will ensure your kitten is healthy upon departure and will require your kitten to be examined by a licensed vet within 48-72 hours or your contract will be void. This is for your benefit to establish the kitten the Breeder sold you is indeed a healthy kitten and for the Breeder it is your acceptance of the kitten they sold you.
Once a kitten has left the protective closed environment of the cattery they are subject to contagious diseases from other felines in the buyer’s new home or areas the new owner has taken the kitten, (pet store, friend or family’s home). It is believed any contagious disease the kitten contracts after a 48 to 72 hour period is due to the care of the new owner. This is one of many reasons why it is best to pick your new kitten up in person and to place your new kitten in a quiet, isolated area of your home separate from other animals.
Does Cartier Siberians require a Vet Examination within 48-72 hours? Yes, here is an excerpt from the Cartier Siberians Kitten Sales Agreement & Health Guarantee:
‘INSPECTION & ACCEPTANCE OF GOODS
BUYER, shall UPON receiving possession of the animal, SHALL have the animal examined by a licensed vet to determine the overall health of the animal for the purpose of this Agreement. Buyer shall have a MAXIMUM of THREE (3) DAYS. Buyer MUST provide the ‘CERTIFICATE OF VETERINARIAN INSPECTION’ provided by the Seller TO the Veterinarian performing the examination PRIOR to the examination AND the animal must NOT be given any vaccination at this first examination unless noted by Seller on page 4 under ‘Immediate Care and Instructions’. Should Buyer be unable to locate the Certificate of Veterinarian Inspection Seller provided, Buyer may contact Seller via text or phone to request the Certificate be faxed or emailed to Buyer or Buyer’s veterinarian. Buyer’s VETERINARIAN MUST fax the examination report for the animal including the animals identifying microchip, color/markings, Buyer’s name and address to the Seller’s fax at (706) 820-0296 with twenty-four (24) hours of the examination. NO EXCEPTIONS. BUYER MUST FAX OR EMAIL THIS REPORT TO SELLER.
If Buyer’s Veterinarian, in good faith, within the three days stated in this Agreeement determines that the animal is non conforming to the overall health for the purpose of this Agreement, then Buyer agrees to contact Seller immediately to determine if the animal should be put down for humane reasons should the animal be in such a condition to be deemed non-conforming to the overall health for the purpose of this Agreement. If the animal is deemed healthy enough to travel, Seller will make arrangements with Buyer at Seller’s expense and Buyer may return the animal. Seller may choose to replace the animal free of charge with an animal of equal value or refund the Buyer 100% of the purchase price as stated in this Agreement, including shipping or delivery not to exceed $245. Seller will have a maximum of six months from the return of the animal, or the unlikely euthanation of the animal, to remedy such defects under the terms of this Agreement. Should the animal require euthanation, Seller agrees to reimburse Buyer for the veterinary examination and euthanization charges not to exceed $100. Buyer must provide the original or a copy of the veterinary invoice or any other paperwork pertaining to this examination to the Seller.
‘Notice to Buyer
The Georgia Department of Agriculture states on their website under the Animal Protection FAQS the answer to the following question:
Is there a “lemon law” in Georgia concerning pet purchases. How can I make sure I purchase a healthy pet? Insist of a written purchase contract. It is recommended that persons take newly purchased pets to a veterinarian within 48-72 hours of purchase to have the animal checked by a licensed and accredited veterinarian of your choice. Purchase from licensed pet dealers only. You can request the inspection history information on a licensed establishment under the Georgia Open Records Act. Although there is no “lemon law” concerning pet purchases, the Animal Protection Section does investigate disease and health issues and selling under false pretenses.’
Buyer MUST have met the requirements as stated in this Agreement with SPECIFIC attention to the terms set forth in this Agreement under the INSPECTION & INSPECTION OF GOODS.’
Did you notice that the Georgia Department of Agriculture recommends you should take newly purchased pets to a veterinarian within 48-72 hours?
The purpose of the Vet examation is simple: To establish the kitten you purchased is healthy. The document for the Breeder should include the date of the exam, your name, the kittens name (if available), the kittens color, gender, microchip number (if microchipped) and the should acknowledge the kitten is healthy, not showing signs of infectious, contagious, and/or communicable disease at the time of the examination. This is your acceptance of the animal in good health and your acknowledgement to the Breeder that you are in agreement that they sold you a healthy kitten.
What if the vet finds your kitten NOT in good health? You should contact the Breeder immediately. Be prepared to provide any and all documentation regarding the kittens health to the Breeder. Reputable Breeders will be willing to resolve this quickly.
Please note: Breeders that request a Vet Exam will provide you instructions on what they require and how they remedy default. Be sure to follow the Breeders instructions as they may differ from Cartier Siberians.

The ‘Something About Pumpkin’ article in the Catster September/October 2015 issue by Melissa Kauffman is well worth the read! She begins by saying, “Fall is coming soon, and we’re in the mood to serve up some yummy pumpkin-flavored eats. We love pumpkin – it’s low in fat and high in fiber; it’s a digestion confection.”
The article features several pumpkin packed treats for cats and kittens along with a description of each product and how many ‘Giveaways’ of each product. For the Cartier Siberian cats and kittens, I’ve chosen and will be purchasing the Weruva Pumpkin Patch Up! Sometimes kittens do need a little digestive help and this sounds like one to try! The article describes: “Weruva’s Pumpkin Patch Up! food supplement for dogs and supports healthy gut motility and stool quality all in an easy-to-serve pouch. It’s pureed for easy mixing and is BPA & gluten free. Can replace up to 10 percent of the diet or just feed as a treat.”
