BadCatBreeders.com Investigates & Promotes Change!

The purpose of BadCatBreeders.com is to offer tangible support and search assistance to those that have had issues purchasing pedigree cats from breeders that are sick, have died or are dying from viruses, bacterial infections and congenital issues. Proof is a standard for all posts and in many cases is provided in PM. Posts without proof are consequently deleted.  Data received is thoroughly gone over by more than one admin and researched so that we may provide objective feedback, advice and support.

As you can see, our site and Facebook page provide a positive source of support for those that have suffered unimaginable heartache and in many cases financial losses without support or feedback from their breeder. In any and all cases where accusations are found to be unsubstantiated by either proof or due to lack of knowledge, the posts by posters on our Facebook page are deleted.

It is our intention to make known not all FIP, diseases or illnesses are due to Bad Breeders, etc.  Many times there is a gap between buyer awareness and breeder responsibility and vice versa. Our ultimate goal is to shed light on issues that represent red flags in the breeding/pet buyer transaction so that all may know their rights and thus improve the interactions overall bilaterally.

Too many sites and pages focus arbitrarily on defending the breeder due to the onslaught of "Adopt don't Shop" messages and bad reputation given to breeding in general. We feel that this is superficial, minimizing and ineffective.  Ultimately unless the issues are heard and given discussion, no real change can take place and the  only way to improve the experience on both sides of this equation is to look at the issues bilaterally in a professional (non-personal) and objective way.

Many may not agree with this, but this page and our site have helped numerous breeders (yes, breeders have issues with other breeders, too) and pet buyers take their issues when warranted successfully through the dispute process, from correlating data to renegotiating contracts to be more inclusive and  mutually beneficial. The key is "mutually beneficial" and there are many good breeders out there that don't deserve the stain that the small percentage of bad ones have given this profession overall. 

As for the Anonymity - that just makes sense given we Investigate claims made so goes without saying! Knowing who we are is not important. As long as we don't know who you are/you're a responsible breeder, that's  what's important!

What is a Bad Cat Breeder?

The typical Bad Cat Breeder is someone who knowingly sells kittens that are sick, suffering from common parasites and diseases such as Calici.  They are easy to spot because their kittens look diseased, malnourished and  neglected.

There is an ever-growing contingent of Bad Cat Breeders that are very difficult to identify.  Their breeding cats appear to be very well taken care of and very healthy.  The breeder boasts show win after show win, top breeding lines and offers only the best of the best.  Interestingly enough, these breeders often have a strict "no visit" policy citing "threat of disease brought in from the outside" as a reason.  If more than one red flag goes up - you are most likely looking at a sophisticated version of a Bad Cat Breeder.

Only if things go wrong will you see who this breeder really is.  Communication often comes to a screeching halt. The breeder will accuse the buyer of wrong doing.  The breeder will insist on a costly necropsy even in the face of veterinary documents clearly diagnosing the pet with a genetic defect.  The breeder will offer no refund, no replacement or worse - threaten the buyer with legal actions if they do not "stop the slander".
