Lynn says on her website that kittens go home around 12 weeks either spayed or neutered. I put a $300 deposit on a kitten from Lynn when it was about 4 weeks old. At 9 weeks old she emailed me saying I could pick up the kitten early if I agreed to have it neutered by 6 months of age. When I asked her if there would be a discount on the sale price of $850 since she wouldn't be paying the expense she said "no". I responded that I chose her as a breeder because the cost included neuter.
A week later we happened to be in Salisbury for a religious convention. I decided that since the drive was 2.5 hours I would contact her to ask about taking her up on the offer to take the kitten unneutered. She emailed me at 10 am saying she would be leaving at 1 pm. I responded that since my convention wasn't over until nearly 5 that it was a missed opportunity.
A few weeks later my mom's horse died. I felt so bad for her that I said she could get the kitten I had put a deposit on. This was when the kitten was 12 weeks old. I emailed Lynn asking if the kitten had an appointment to be neutered. She responded that the kitten would be neutered [when it was 13.5 weeks old] and I could pick it up after [when the kitten was 14 weeks old]. I explained the entire situation and that my mom would be visiting from NH a week prior to that. She was completely inflexible and expressed that she was irritated that I hadn't picked up the cat when I was in Salisbury. She claimed to have called me several times, I never received a phone call from Lynn. Not once.
I decided to pass on this kitten at this point because it was nearly 4 months old, hardly a kitten and my husband had lost his job. She doesn't keep her promise to neuter at 3 lbs or 12 weeks.
I contacted her 2 months later to inquire about using my non-refundable deposit toward a future kitten. She wrote a very nasty email back saying I forfeited my deposit and she was not willing to do so. I informed her that there was no contract and she should either return my deposit or allow me to apply it to a future kitten. At this point she claims I owe HER $50 because she could only sell the half grown kitten I had deposited on for $500! Nobody wanted to pay $850 for a 14 week old kitten, and that's her fault. I told her my lawyer would be contacting her with a Demand Letter.
