Getting Deposit Back From Breeder?
So I recently found out (recently as in last night), that the breeder I thought was reputable and raising her kittens in a loving way, is not so reputable and I'm freaking out.
I've recently put down a $300 deposit on a bengal kitten that I would love to take home, but after reading some information about the breeder scamming and purchasing cats illegally about 6 years ago, I started to get really nervous. I messaged a few other people who have purchased kittens from her within the last 2 years, and many of them have issues. One in particular came from her place with ear mites and sneezing problems, with the sneezing problems never completely ending. He also ended up developing HCM later on, although this is not the breeders fault.
Is there any way for me to get my deposit back? I know they are usually non-refundable, but I would not want it back if I did not hear such awful things about people's experiences with her. I am not going to purchase the next member of my family from a home that I am not 100% about.
