Q: I bought a kitten and it turned out to be sick and the seller is not accepting to return or refund me the amount paid

I bought a kitten about a week ago and took it to the vet after long trying to make an appointment and it turns out that the kitten is sick it has an ear infection, juvenile gingivitis and stomach problems even though the seller told me that the kitten is completely healthy and was recently vetted but it turned out that the "recently vetted" was six months ago I contacted him and he refused to refund or return the kitten, I told him to send me the recent vet report he did not have it as he did not take the kitten to a vet and the costs of the procedures is between a thousand and two and a half thousand Canadian dollars, I am not sure what to do please help me.

A: It's a question whether breach of contract has occurred and whether there is misrepresentation that you relied on to enter into the contract. If there is misrepresentation that you relied on, you can ask for the seller to pay the fee. If he does not, you can bring a lawsuit in small claim court.
