Hello I would like to ask advice on a tricky situation regarding buying a kitten from the UK. The kitten is coming to Finland, and would be collected in person from the UK as this is the best was of ensuring safe and the least stressful transport. We have agreed (in writing, but no money has been exchanged) on the purchase of a kitten from a highly experienced and recommended breeder in the UK. The collection was arranged, with flights and hotels booked and paid. No refunds available. Despite agreeing dates for vaccinations, the breeder's vet failed to give the rabies vaccination on the correct date so the kitten cannot be collected on the date arranged so new flights have to be booked and paid for. The rules here in Finland on import without the rabies vaccination - even if just a few days late - are extremely strict and we have taken advice from vets here on this. Now my question is - who, in your opinion, should pay for the flight/delivery of the kitten ? Here in Finland it is very clear it should be paid by the breeder as the breeder has broken the agreement - even if not deliberatley. However this may not be the case under UK law. So I would appreciate your responses on this. Personally, I would expect the breeder to fund transportation (we can manage this at about 400) and then claim off the vet who is currently not admitting fault, but it is very clear it is not the breeder's fault this has occurred. She was not herself able to deal with the vet on the date when the vaccinations were due and that is where the problems arose. This is an unhappy situation and we are trying to resolve it with the least conflict and misunderstanding. Thank you in advance for your responses.
