After 3 months of waiting for the Abyssinian kitten, the Cedarwood Cattery owner reneged to transport and deliver the expected kitten. I had put down an initial deposit and paid the balance in full to seal the contract. The seller did not even have the decency to call to inform me that she sold the kitten to another customer. In which she stated this fact to me at a later date.

On the promised day of delivery, I called the owner to confirm that everything was in order. Her response was affirmative. Without explanation the funds were credited back to me.

Totally unethical business practice. Must have gotten a more profitable deal.

I was a bait and switch victim also

AUTHOR: ABailey - (USA)

In 2011, I paid a $200 downpayment to Susan Graham of Aksum Abyssinians.  After months of the runaround and no kitten, I contacted Karen Vance to see whether I could get a Aby from her.  It turned out that Susan Graham and Karen Vance work as business partners.  With them working in cahoots, I experienced the same bait and switch as the previous writer.  I paid an additional $800 to Karen Vance and was told about the specific kitten I would receive. Before I received the kitten, Susan persuaded Karen to sell the kitten I'd been promised to a breeder. Later, Susan sent me a picture of another kitten I would receive instead.  When I returned home after diriving from Maryland to Georgia after finally picking up the kitten from Susan (she'd made a business trip to see Karen Vance in Canada and took my kitten back to Georgia with her), I discovered the kitten I received did not match the picture I'd been sent.  Fooled me twice.  It was my first time purchasing a purebred kitten.  It was my misfortune to stumble on two breeders with such unethical business practices.

Similarly bad experience with Cedarwood cattery

AUTHOR: Hiwey61 - ()

I had an equally bad experience with Karen Vance at Cedarwood Cattery. It's just sad that someone who breeds and sells high-end pets cannot manage to be honest and straightforward with customers who want to have a nice pet. In particular, Ms. Vance needs to state all terms of a sale BEFORE the transaction, and she needs to KEEP HER WORD!
