BEWARE: INTERNET KITTEN PURCHASE SCAMS!!
More and more people are getting scammed in buying “cheap”
kittens from the internet via bogus websites and “For Free
These scam artists create bogus websites, using the cattery
names of well-respected, registered and accredited cat breeders,
and posting pictures of kittens and their “parent cats”, that
they have downloaded from South African as well as international
breeder websites. They run the bogus website for a few
weeks, and then replace it with another, so as to be able to con
yet another bunch of victims. These “breeders” claim to be South
African, they often advertise a range of “available” kittens for
sale, such as Persians, Ragdolls, Maine Coons, Norwegian Forest,
Sphynx etc, with a cell-phone number.
When contacted and asked if it is possible to
visit and see the kittens (and having established the buyer’s
domicile), they will indicate that their cattery is based in
another province. The “sales” are always handled
telephonically or via e-mail. Sometimes they will provide a
landline telephone number, but closer inspection of the area
code may indicate that the scammer is not based where he claims
If requested, a picture of the respective kitten
may be sent electronically – more often than not down-loaded

When considering the acquisition of a pedigree kitten,
make every effort to visit the breeder and inspect the

Check if the breeder and/or cattery is
registered with either the SACC (the Registrar of the
South African Cat Register at 011 616 7017, or email:
firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Cat Federation of Southern
Africa (016 987 1170, e-mail:
CFSARegister@gmail.com) or Cat Association of Southern
Africa (CASA website:

that his/her cats are SACC , CFSA or CASA registered, verify
this for yourself.
Pedigreed kittens should never be re-homed under the age of
12 weeks, so be suspicious if younger kittens are being
advertised as ready for re-homing. Breeding registered cats on a
reputable manner is a costly exercise, therefore “cheap” kittens
are a dead giveaway that something is not right. Reputable
breeders will advertise on their own websites, known animal
magazines or known animal websites and Not on “for free
advertising ” websites that advertises anything from animals to
cars. PLEAS MAKE SURE BEFORE YOU ADOPT.
