Debora McIntyre is the most dishonest self proclaimed breeder I have EVER met. She is completely un professional, I had put a deposit in GOOD FAITH of $400.00 (outrageous price to begin with) due to her promise in providing me with detailed specifics I asked of her . She NEVER provided me with my cat and it's about to be one year. I have given her a chance to be an honest person and asked her to Refund me back the money she took since she had obviously reached a breach of contract. She is either a professional thief or just a con artist , I have never had a breeder steal money from me ever nor ask for such a huge deposit. I highly advice to not give her any business, she will take and not provide you with anything you are requesting.  My next stop to this is to report her to the BBB. I will get my money back!

You're Still Ripping off Customers I see.

AUTHOR: patty013 - (United States of America)

It was $100 you ripped off of me and now I see another complaint for $400.00.  This customer should bring you to small claims court once and for all!  I know the song and dance you use when you lead a customer on...when you put them on your "special list" the one their name never comes up on.  Karma has a way of punishing people like you and your day is coming for sure!  I will never forget you or how easily you grabbed my $100....stealing from the elderly needs to be a crime, especially the way you did it.

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!

Be aware of this cattery.  Besides my report and the other report for $400, there is one more I read that's on the internet.  Who knows how many other complaints that never got reported on the internet!

Face Facts and stop making STORIES

AUTHOR: Jz13 - ()

Deborah McIntyre.. You need to face facts and admit you bit more than you can chew. It's one thing you walked away with my money, now your inventing stories for who knows what reason, you cannot offer other kittens to me when the money was for a specific "Blue Point Perssian Male" it's what you promised to provide or you would have NEVER received money from me AT ALL. To have the nerve to send me photos of different cats that do not look anything as what I have instructed you to provide is an insult. If you were true to claiming you were a TRUE and HONEST person you would have given me my money back since you FAILED to produce what you had been paid for. Or just given me a cat for the 400$ you already have with taking the rest as a loss for how long being over a year now for causing me this waste of time and money.

MUFFHYMSCATTERY.COM has changed its agreements since I had hounded Deborah McIntyre about my money and her FAILURE to produce what SHE promised. I even had a friend pretend she was interested and she had fed her all these NEW rules. A contract is to make payment for the product that is promised not for you to decide what cat you want to sell me, it's dishonest , making you a thief, in seviere denial for not facing facts, and really should not make contracts to make it okay to steal when you cannot produce specifics...

Just say NO I can't and let people keep their money and go else where to go and get what they are looking for. I could have gotten what I wanted that day but in trusted YOU like an idiot knowing my beloved cat had passed away. You are a horrible person to do such a thing. Shame on you! I should have researched you before you STOLE my money. You have terrible reviews. I've purchased from several REAL certified breeders. Funny thing that you mentioned about me ignoring you when all you did was send me pictures of cats that did not meet my specifications ... It was an insult, extremely disrespectful towards me. 

- Honest people do the right thing, people like Deborah McIntyre are a disgrace to REAL certified BREEDERS.

Non Refundable kitten deposit

AUTHOR: muffhymscattery - ()

This customer came to me and wanted to put a deposit down on one of my future kittens.  I explained to her it would be some time before I would have exactly what she wanted.  She Gave me a 400.00 $ deposit so she would get first pick of my kittens.  my usual fee is $200.00 but she wanted to put double to make sure she got "her" kitten.  I called her on several occassions during the year offering her a kitten.  I had calico's, flame points, seal point, blue points and several other colors.  each time she said no.  eventually I gave up on emailing and calling her offering her a kitten.  she stayed on my list for over a year.  I than told her to just keep looking at my website and when she sees what she wants to call me. SHE NEVER CALLED.  i do not offer refunds on any of my deposits.  The deposit is to put her on a priority list to be the first one I call and offer her kittens. 

As I previously stated,  no matter what I offered her she kept saying no.  The deposit is for serious buyers only and this is told to the buyer before the deposit is put down.  They are also told the deposit will always be here for them if and when they deside to purchase one of my kittens.(but two years is really asking too much.  Although her deposit is still on hold.   I have a few people who are still waiting for that special kitten.  I explain to all my customers "please be patient" the color and personality of the kitten they want will come but they must be patient.  Again, I do not offer refunds but I do offer a very nice kitten when they are ready.  If they decide to go to a different cattery to purchase their kitten they lose their deposit unless they decide to get a second kitten. 

Please go to my website and see my contract and my kittens.  I am always upfront with my customers before any money changes hands.  my website is, MUFFHYMSCATTERY.COM and I honor any and all customers  agreements who wish to purchase a kitten from my cattery.

Thank you.

Deborah McIntyre
