Fanciersplus provides a listing and advertising means for cat related
merchants and cat breeders of pedigreed cats with catteries that
are registered with major cat associations, for example CFA, TICA,
GCCF, ACF. We do not endorse or guarantee any products, animals
being advertised and sold, catteries, breeders and merchants listed.
As with all such merchant or cat breeder listing services, listers
are accepted in good faith. Fanciersplus or its web design team
can not be held responsible or liable for any transactions conducted
as a result of contacts made through Fanciersplus or third party
sites linked to or from the Sites. Fanciersplus does not become
involved in any disputes between sellers and buyers, regarding the
quality, health, cost, money transactions, or any other issue related
to the sale of cats or products on the Sites. It is the sole responsibility
of the buyer to do any necessary research before making any such
purchase. It is entirely between each individual, cattery, breeder,
purchaser, company or institution. However, should we become aware
and provided proof of animal neglect/abuse of any listed cattery
or business, they and any other associated links will be immediately
removed from the Sites.
You may not use this cattery list or contact cat breeders with information
for junk mail or unsolicited mass mailing, spamming, to harass and
abuse list members. Your privacy is important to us. To better protect
