UK – Don’t Buy a Pet On Gumtree | Blog About Cats — 2 Comments

  1. Totally agree that live animals should not be sold via Gumtree or similar sites.

    Have seen some blatantly obvious moggies being passed off as pedigrees and some breed look-alikes which upon closer inspection are from back-yard breeders.

    For the private seller there is the danger that without home checks or strict vetting of potential buyers, they can’t be 100% confident of finding a good home for their pet.

    I’ve come across numerous horror stories on Y/A of people buying “pedigrees” on these sites, only to end up with a very sickly or short-lived kitten and a huge vet bill 🙁
