Sphynx Kitten — Unethical Breeder
I purchased a Sphynx Kitten from a Local Breeder. The Kitten was continuously Ill & I asked the Breeder to make an Appointment with their Vet & Pay for the Medicine she might Need. The Breeder made the Appointment with their Vet & met me there. The Kitten was Diagnosed with another Upper Respiratory Infection as well as an Eye & Ear Infection. The Breeder suggested that they give me my Money back & take her back. I said that would probably be for the Best & left the Pet Hospital with the Kitten in the care of the Breeder. Within 10 minutes I Called the Pet Hospital wanting to Speak to the Breeder, but they said she had already left. I then left a Voicemail Message on the Breeders Home Phone, I said that I was coming to get her. When I got to the Residence one of the Breeders was in the Driveway, but she did NOT have the Kitten, she had left it @ the Pet Hospital with her Sister who she Called & told that I was there to pick up my Kitten & proceeded to put me on the Phone & I was told "YOU ARE NOT GETTING HER BACK"! I said that I did Not Understand what I had done Wrong & I Never got 1 Red Cent from them. I Paid $900 for the Kitten & I am out a Kitten & $900 too. I told her that I would Call for the Police & she stated "OK" & hung up. I Called the Police & when he came he went inside to Speak to the Breeder who was already inside. He came back out & said they are going to Mail my Carrier & Money back to me. I did Not want to leave without @ least having her Documents. The Officer went back inside & again came out & said they are Mailing everything back & that I would Need to leave & take the matter up with the Magistrate & gave me the Magistrate's Name, Address, & Phone #. I tried again reasoning with the Breeder to give the Kitten back, but she was adament about Not giving her back. They essentially Stole her from me, I did absolutely Nothing Wrong & the Vet even said there was No Blame towards anyone. I Filed with the Magistrate's Office & I am Asking for the Recovery of my Sphynx Kitten. She is Bought & Paid for, I have Received No Money back from the Breeder & I Never Signed anything Relinquishing any of my Rights to the Kitten. I am absolutely Devestated! The Behavior of these Breeders is completely Unethical, I have Never in my Lifetime Experience such Abuse from another Human Being before & Hope to Never have an Experience like it again.
