I contacted this breeder, Deborah McIntyre, owner of Muffhymscattery on feb. 2, 2013 to inquire about a blue point himalayan kitten. She said she would have some soon for $700 to $900 each. She kept writing and told me she had a waiting list. One list was free and the other was the "priority" list and cost $100. I said put me on the free list. She kept writing that kittens would be born any day now and that the "priority" list would be called first and get first choice. I relented and sent her a check for $100. I kept writing her and she kept saying any day now...that went on all month.

A cat's gestation period is only 65 days...how could she be so wrong and call herself a breeder? Finally she wrote and told me the cat was in labor. I waited all weekend to hear from her. When i finally wrote her she told me the litter was born and i did not come up on that list and would have to wait for the next litter in a couple of weeks!! So what was the point of paying to be on a priority list? It was now the first week of march!

I found an ad from a reputable breeder and bought my blue point himalayan kitten from her on March 8, 2013 with no problem, no lists and no baloney! I then asked for my money back from Muffhymscattery and was told it was non-refundable...though she never once told me that in any emails! I never saw one kitten or cat from her and don't even know if she ever had any. I've kept every email we've had between us. I am retired and had just lost my 18 year old himalayan cat on Feb. 1, 2013 - who had been my constant companion for 18 years and just wanted another kitten like her.  I feel this woman stole the $100 from me.  I feel robbed!

Restraining Order?

AUTHOR: patty013 - ()

Funny thing Deb, I never received that restraining order you said was in process......I spoke to the Corona Police Dept and filed a report with them about you.  I have now filed reports with the BBB, the State Attorney General and the Corona Police.  Should you dare cheat another person out of a phony deposit they will take care of you.  I'm telling everyone I know about you...and they're telling everyone they know.  Karma is a bad thing Deb.  It will come back and get you when you least expect it.

Go For It Deb!

AUTHOR: patty013 - ()

If you really think I'm "slandering" you by telling the truth them GO FOR IT.  Put your money where your mouth is!   You are the one lying...especially saying you called me and asked if you could put "non-refundable" on my check.  Do you even realize that's is fraud and check tampering????  How far do you think that will get you?  Where is your proof that you "called me" and I agreed?  What nonsense!  So, I was 15 on the list now....funny, your email to me said 7th and said it LONG after the fact!  Why don't you just give up and refund the money before you lose whatever reputation you have?  As a business person that is not really very smart!  Don't you think others are reading this too?  Do you think they will side with you?  I have until August to take you to small claims court and the angrier I get the less I think of the cost of going there and opening a complaint against you!  I may do that yet!

This Woman Lies and I Want Everyone to Know IT

AUTHOR: patty013 - ()

Debra forgets I have kept every single email that went between us.  She did not tell me the deposit was non refundable.  She did not tell me I was 15th on the list!  She even went so far as to put the non refundable deposit statement on her website - then later took it off and when I emailed her about it she sent me some phony "contract" template that I never SIGNED.  Then she went and put the non-refundable deposit back on her website!  A lot of work for the lousy $100 she stole from me.  Who, in their right mind, would have sent her $100.00 if she had even said that.  She is low in taking $100.00 from a retired person for doing absolutely nothing.  Its obvious she did not have kittens at the time and just wished to string me along.  I never saw a cat or a kitten - I never went to her "cattery".  She just took the money for no good reason other then to enrich herself by $100!  There is NO need for a restraining order because I have FILED a REPORT with the police in her area.

I have not taken this to small claims court since it is pretty far from me and would cost filing and service fees.  BUT she may be in for trouble if she keeps calling me a liar and twisting the truth to suit herself!

Buyer's Do Not Purchase with words on websites of catteries says "NON REFUNDABLE DEPOSITS"

AUTHOR: CFA Cattery Reviews - ()

NOTICE: A deposit is used as leverage to "lock in a sale" because the cat breeder/s is so hungry for money. As they live over their means and use sales to make a living off.

All Breeders Need to Return A Deposit at any time for any reason

AUTHOR: CFA Cattery Reviews - ()

CFA Cattery Reviews has a new policy now. If any cat breeder any where in the world refuses NOT give back a deposit to a buyer for whatever reason, there will be contact with the police or Sheriff's dept in the city that cat breeder lives.
 
A report will be filed. A buyer has a right to change his/her mind at any time, the same as they do in legal business's and are able to get refunds.
The cat breeder's made up that deposits are non refundable and you all seemed to get away with it, not anymore. Those days are gone.


So talk to your breeder pals and tell then what will happen if they withold any form of a deposit for any reason whatsoever.
If a cat breeder wants to stay in business they will return any deposit requested by the buyer at ANY TIME, for ANY reason, no ifs ands or buts about it. Its simple to understand.
It does not matter what the buyer "did" or "did not do", "what they said" or "did not say" if a buyer wants her/his deposit back a cat breeder will infact give it back or have a police/sheriff report filed its that simple, case closed.

NOTICE: A deposit is used as leverage to lock in a sale because the cat breeder is so hungry for money. As they live over their means and use sales to make a living off.

#7 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Muffhyms cattery non refundable deposit $100.00

AUTHOR: muffhymscattery - ()

This women who calls herself Patricia R****  is a professional scam artist.  She has been harrassing me for several months now.  She asked to be on one of my lists to purchase a kitten.  I offered her two different lists.  First one was free which she first chose.  than she decided to be on the priority list to be ahead of the free list.  She was well aware she was not first on the list.  contrary, she was 15th! 

I told her to be on the list it would cost $100.00 and would go to the purchase of a kitten but if she chose to go somewhere else it was not refundable.  She decided to send the money.  i called and told her I was putting the non refundable on her check before I cashed it she said nothing.  I have had three litters since than and have offered her at least three different kittens which she has refused.

She continue to harass me and slander my name want her money back.  It was clearly told to her no refund and it is written in my website.  I am in the process of getting a restraining order on her because she has clearly told me she is having fun harrassing me and contacting agency's to hurt my company and will never stop.  I have a repretable company and will do what I must to keep her away from me.  Returning her $100.00 is not an option she knew what she was doing and has noting better to do but come after me which I am sure she is doing to others.

If you wish a fax copy of the restraining order please let me know.  if this continues I will also sue her for slander.

thank you.
