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.
