I am sorry this is in the wrong place but I am having trouble using this site at the moment.
I got myself a pedigree kitten yesterday and she is beautiful paid quite a bit for her off a proper breeder.
The breeder bought her to me. To my shock shortly after I discovered that the kitten has fleas and I am really concerned in case I end up with an infestation in my house.
I have today spent a fortune on a house spray and treatment for the kitten.
I have made the breeder aware of this and they have said that no way did she have them yesterday as was taken to the vet yesterday to have vaccinations she has said she is offended by me saying this.
So what do you think have I handled this badly and dont you think I have a right to say.

I'm not angry at OP. She's not first & she wont' be the last to be duped. I am furious at breeder though.

OP did you get the vaccination card, proof of neutering?

Did you watch the program on tv recently, it was about breeding dogs, 'breeders' were forging documents, like vet cards and pedigree documents!

Lakia: I'm sorry you have been criticised here.
What did the vet say who did the vaccinations (Take note Readers, OP has said she has record); did they confirm the kitten is in their records, and that they neutered her, too?

If any part of the story turns out to be untrue then you MUST take this to Trading Standards. For a pedigree you pay a pretty penny, don't let the breeder dupe others.
