Hi there. I’m new to this forum and I’ve joined because I would like a bit of advice. I’m currently in the process of purchasing 2 kitten that I’ve put deposits on. I saw and advert and checked out the breeders website which was full of glowing reviews. Yet since the start the breeder has altered the price from what was advertised. Has harassed me and my partner both together and separately via text for more money at least 4 times saying they had an emergency on at least 2 of these occasions. I have since found a review on yelp saying they did this to someone else. I have only received one contract for one kitten (which asks for balance 7 days before collecting the cats). Once when they asked for more money they told me if they couldn’t raise more money the cats would be delayed?? I offered to get the cats neutered myself to save her that initial payment to which I never had a response or acknowledgement to. Now they’ve told me the cats are ready at 11wks2days old which I feel is too early for pedigrees, I didn’t think second vaccinations were given til week12? They have also now given me a date to pay which is now actually 9 days before not 7 and apparently I’m not getting the both neutered as agreed (This was never agreed on)?? I have not actually even seen the kittens myself as I originally sent my partner so I’m defo not paying a balance til I’ve met the breeder and the kittens. The breeder is apparently now moving house which also sound dodgy, so all paperwork has been packed away. There has been a lot more incidents but believe it or not this is the short version. They are apparently GCCF registered as I’ve called and checked. I don’t doubt the kittens are pedigree etc and we really want these kittens but at the same time I’m really angry. Havng lost a my cat after 12 years this has turned out to be such an anxious stressful experience and i intend to tell the breeder I’m not willing to pay until I have the cats and paperwork and only sign the contract on collection day. Any advise would be appreciated thank you.
