Gee, Lynne. You don't believe in miracles? What a ridiculous thing to say! I fully understand your disgust with these people. I don't know that you're going to get satisfaction from them, if they're capable of such poor care of their "product," but I definitely don't blame you for trying.
If you're really considering legal action, your best bet would be (imo) to move forward and consult a lawyer to find out what the possibilities are. I'm just afraid it's going to be more trouble than it's worth, and that these people will either weasel out of their obligations, or you'll have nice-sized legal bills. It may be that this can be taken to small-claims court in your area. Either way, I'd complain to the local chamber of commerce, the Better Business Bureau, and anyone at all that can have an effect on these people. You might also consider writing letters to the editors of your local papers, being careful to not name these people directly, but warning any would-be cat owners to triple-check any cat breeders or handlers they might consider purchasing an animal from, and to definitely not take their word for it. I've been praying for you and Bob. I'm really sorry that you're having to go through this. Lance On Mon, 10 Mar 2008 12:59:21 -0500, "Lynne" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> said: > I just need to vent.
