Re: Do You Refund When Your Kittens Die From FIP?

My breeder will generally replace (not refund) a kitten that dies before the age of 3 years from any cause (minus air shipping).

That said, I think her policy if far too generous.

At what age are they considered safe from developing FIP?

Re: Do You Refund When Your Kittens Die From FIP?

Very nice of your breeder, Toby Tyler!

I've been thinking: I guess the odds of this happening is quite low so for breeders, it might be best to just pay and shut up because fighting just causes stress. It's just interesting though that the breeder is EXPECTED to rather than it's NICE of the breeder to.

Never. There comes a point though where it is beyond all reason to try and trace an original infection back to the breeder.

As to anything else, well everything is genetic to a certain extent. There may be a genetic predisposition to developing disease just as there is in humans. In the vast majority of cases (with both humans and animals) genetics alone isn't the trigger, lifestyle is. So no, I won't be refunding my kitten buyers if their cat dies young of weight related diabetes having been fed a diet of carbs.

Re: Do You Refund When Your Kittens Die From FIP?

I would likely offer another kitten if within 18 months or so, I do have a contract but there are also times things are done at the breeders digression.

I replaced a kitten that was over 12 months that passed due to an accident in the home, they lost my boy and another of their cats, while I was under no obligation I had no problem giving them another kitten.
Nothing to do with money, but helping a heartbroken family - and they didn't ask for anything.

Re: Do You Refund When Your Kittens Die From FIP?

I think that's great, spotty_cats.

What I don't agree is is why it is practically a MUST (in the discussion) rather than a nice thing a breeder chooses to do/can afford to do at that time. I hope the EU will soon recognise animals as living beings rather than classed as a thing/good. :/

Re: Do You Refund When Your Kittens Die From FIP?

I would replace or refund on a kitten who died before 6 months old UNLESS the insurance had already paid out the full purchase price to the owner.

Over that age depends on the circumstances of the kitten passing away and I would treat each case as individual.

Re: Do You Refund When Your Kittens Die From FIP?

Soupie: May I ask what insurance covers the purchase price of a kitten? Is it some kind of special breeders insurance?

No standard pet insurance gives you option of insuring againt purchase price too. All of mine are insured for purchase price as well as vets fees and the girls are also insured for breeding risks with a specialist company.

Purchase price though is on many pet policies as an insurable risk

Some of the policies here include death by injury or illness but insurance just isn't a common thing since for most people it's really not worth the monthly expense with the exclusions of what's not covered, especially for indoor cats.

Breeding cats can't be insured here, c-sections etc. must just be considered as a risk of breeding rather than something they're willing to cover.
