Silverbluescattery.com are advertising kittens for sale online. They use stolen credit cards and invent identities to defraud people shopping for a kitten kitten online.
In the first email, the scammer will ask all the right questions, putting you through the motions to prove your suitability: how would we care for our kitten, how would we train him, how often would he be alone?

Then the fraudsters emails will get shorter and normally keep to sms messages. This is because the first email is a template where as you are now dealing with the actual scammer.

The “Scam Breeder” will ignore any questions about their affiliation with any clubs or organisations, and questions about the kitten’s parents. The main focus now is convincing you to pay as soon as possible. The kitten will be shipped to you by the scammers perferred delivery company. There is no other option. If you insist on picking up your new kitten they will eventually agree. It makes no difference to them if you travel for 4 hours because they are not at the address they claim to be.

Silverbluescattery.com will claim to deliver the kitten using a Fraudulent Delivery company which is actually another scam website they set up in order to steal your money by charging for non existent delivery, a air conditioned travel crate, medical insurance for your kitten as well as multiple other fees.

  1. First, a huge thank you to everyone who posted these comments and very unfortunate experiences. It makes me wonder how many more people were preyed upon by these con artists. We had an almost identical experience when we inquired. The first email was very positive wanting to know about our family and home, which i thought was very encouraging. When I asked for information and certificates related to the parents, they completely ignored my specific questions. They went into explaining about the shipping process and some company they use, as well as a coupon they offer. Just as some of you posted previously. With all that, and the fact that their prices were significantly less than what other breeders are asking, my alarm bells started ringing. Other breeders have their kittens reserved sometimes at birth, and these had 5 kittens available at 10 weeks. No information on the website about parents, which is a huge red flag. This just does not add up based on my other research. That’s how I came across all of your reviews. What a shame to take advantage at a time like this. I hope you all find the pets you are looking for.

  2. Thank you for sharing and writing! I searched on google to find out their location and came across this.

  3. Hi, thank you so much for this information. I was just emailing them back excited at the prospect of my new kitty. But they didn’t answer my question of location, hence me googling the cattery name.
    Their return email was word for word as Saphyre (previous email).
    It sure is heart breaking and infuriating that people actually go to all this trouble to scam others. Especially with the world being in chaos at the moment with the Corona Virus…. Heartless humans.
    I will list them as “junk” & make a few local phone calls to find a breeder.
    Thank you again.
    Hope you all find your perfect pet.

  4. I too exchanged emails with this outfit with the intent of purchasing one of their kittens for $500 plus shipping, using a coupon for $200, which was only good for a short period of time. Some red flags went off in my head as I read through their emails, which are full of grammatical errors and spelling errors. I should have heeded my own misgivings. Thankfully I found this website before I sent them any money, but am now heartbroken that I won’t be getting a RB kitten. Thank you for posting this warning.

  5. I am glad I saw this but broken hearted to know some one would do this. I answered in a very long email about how we would take care of one, and how my family was so excited to know we were getting one. etc. Thank you for having this site.

  6. There is a very similar website, exclusivekittenbreeders.com, which has some of the identical wording.

  7. I also got in touch with them. The very first email I sent, I asked if they spay/neuter their kittens and if they have fleas. The email I got didn’t answer any of those questions. It was the same email as mentioned in the comments. So I told them more about us (I was being vague as possible) and asked those questions again. They sent me an email with shipment information and didn’t answer any of my questions about the kittens once again.

  8. So glad to have seen this.
    Everything on the website was set up beautifully, and even the first email came back fast. I will copy and paste the email below:

    Hello,

    We just got your inquiry about one of our kittens we still have them available and ready to go as soon
    as possible. We are asking $500 for each. They have great temperament and lovely personality. Our pets are

All kittens on site are 10 weeks old,Micro-chipped, potty trained, 100% domesticated and well socialized with kids, as well as other pets and animals.So if you were looking for a friend, a well trained kitten to be a companion , then you are in the right place.

    However before we proceed further, We will like to know more about you.

  9. Same happened to us. I am so fortunate to find this review before we send any money. The scammer stoped responding after I confronted them of scam.

  10. Silver Blues Cattery is a scam. They take your money and never send a kitten. They have stolen content from legitimate breeder’s websites.

  11. I, too, contacted this organization about purchasing a Russian Blue kitten. I found this online warning while I was trying to find out where they were located. My experience sounds almost word-for-word like Bruce’s, with a couple of email exchanges, but with the exception that I told them that I found out that they were scammers. After that, there was no reply from them. If they were not scammers, I would have expected an email right away denying the charge and saying that someone was putting out false stories. Their silence is damning evidence.
    Thank you Bruce and Susan for the heads up.

  12. I attempted to contact this organization about purchasing a Russian blue since my wife has cat allergies. It started just as Susan reported. I thought it odd that the intro letter had no name on it. Then while showing my wife the pics I ran across Susan’s warning. Thank you Susan for posting the warning. I decided at this point to play along. The second email told me they were 10 weeks old and going fast and I needed to send a deposit of$400 to hold one. I decided to throw them a curve and ask for a physical address so my wife could visit to determine if she would be allergic to them. I also asked which ones were available and their sexes. I was given the names of the last three and no sexes. I also asked about the payment methods and was told zelle ( a huge red flag). I told them I would pay cash at the visit once we were sure of no allergies. Guess what, I have received no response as of yet. If I do get a response, I will add a post to this site.

    Bruce
