Going to Another Province to Adopt Kitties... Safest Way To Pay?

Hello!

I hope everyone is doing well. I will probably have to fly to another province (Ontario has a few really reputable breeders) to pick up kitties and take them home with me to Manitoba. I'm wondering what is the safest and fastest for me (and the breeder of course) to pay her. I don't like carrying around 3K in cash, e transfers may be slow and require bank assistance, and I can't order just a single cheque.

If anyone has experience with this, I would LOVE to hear what you did when adopting your baby(ies).

Thanks!

Welcome to sphynxlair. I'm not fromyour country so can't give you advice on ehich money transfer system best to use. Here in the Netherlands I payed with electronic banking. I made the payment in front of my breeder so she could see the money was transferd

Yes I think if you did a transfer or electronic check with the breeder viewing what you were doing that would be ok.

Many years ago I bought a Spyhnx from a breeder in Ontario and I paid by etransfer and she then had the kitten flown to us in Alberta. I made sure she was reputable and had a lot of conversations with her before hand, all went smoothly.

I would do the etransfer again, and make a quick call to your bank to let them know your plans so if your daily etransfer limit is usually not that high it can be for that day for it to go through.

Hi, wish I could help you more but it was many years ago and the breeder no longer breeds.
