I am so depressed... I think I might have chose wrong. It's not technically my cat but I was going to be taking a lot of care of him... I was helping to pick a breeder for a family member, he wanted a certain kind and we were searching for about a year before finally we found two breeders who had what he wanted almost (wrong gender). We were in contact with both before the kittens were born and finally chose the one who seemed to have more experience and be more up on all the testing that should be done, so went with that one. We talked to them a lot and 2 months ago we worked it out to pick up the kitten 1 week earlier than the breeder was going to send them to their new homes. We had to work this out because we are unable to get there (it's several hours away) in January due to work constraints. So we made a set date and they said it would be fine, they would have the kitten fixed by then, so we sent them a deposite for the kitten. Then I emailed the breeder several days before we were scheduled to pick up the kitten and they told me they never made the appointment to get the kitten fixed so we could not pick him up until a week after the surgery (NO exceptions), which was in January even though we told them two months before that we could not do it in January...so now we have no way to get this kitten and he is getting older...my family member really wanted an actual kitten who would be more adaptable and we had a lot of plans which are not shattered...if we had been able to pick him up when we arranged I would have had almost 2 weeks of vacation when I could get him adjusted to the new home and make sure he stayed out of mischeif but now I don't even know if we can pick him up for another month, and we're both going to be busy then with no time off...now I don't even know if we're getting the kitten and Im just really frustrated... I'm starting to wish I had chosen the other breeder instead. My family member even said he was considering just forgetting the whole thing and trying to find another breeder.
