This type of breeder is usually the person who has one or two cats who breeds an occasional litter but does not have any affiliation with other breeders nor are they bound by ANY CODES OR ETHICS!! They may or may not do health testing and may not be familiar with proper care and conditions for raising a healthy litter of kittens. This type of breeder most often advertises their kittens for sale in the local newspapers also. They also have no idea what a show quality cat really is. GOOD BREEDERS DO NOT GROW ON TREES!!!
These poor kittens are born and raised in poor conditions and many have multiple health and personality problems. The cats are usually selling at prices far below those of the ethical breeder, the parents have not had the proper health checks before breeding, and there is no way they can give any GUARANTEES. These breeders also have kittens available all year long!! This is a bad situation.
They breed all year for profit ONLY.
It is up to you to decide which type of breeder and guarantee (CONTRACT) you want your kitten/cat to come from. Once you decide, you will have to be patient. It is rare (although it does happen) that a reputable breeder will have a kitten available immediately.
Good luck in your search!!
