C Angels Maine Coons — bad breeder selling sick kittens
I purchased a Maine coon kitten from C Angels approximately 2 weeks ago. The kitten was showing symptoms of a cold ( green discharge from eyes and nose and sneezing). C Angels assured me it was a cold and minimized it, staring is happened after the kittens first vaccines. I took the kitten home and immediately made an appointment with my Vet the next day. My Vet treated the kitten with a 2 week injectable antibiotic. After 10 days the kitten was no better. I again brought the cat to my Vet and paid for a full upper respiratory panel. The kitten tested positive for mycoplasma felis and calici virus. Upon questioning C Angels again, they stated that the kitten was displaying symptoms of an upper respiratory infection prior to the first vaccines. C Angels lied to me. Why would a breeder bring a kitten whose immune system is not great yet, in for vaccines only to stress the kitten out more. What makes matters worse, is that the kitten infected my 2 year old Selkirk Rex. Although my Selkirk Rex was vaccinated, he now has discharge from one eye and has to be treated with an eye medicine. I returned the kitten back to C angels and an still waiting on a money order for half of the Vet bill. It appears as though it hit lost in the mail. When I brought the kitten back I noticed that all her adult cats and kittens were displaying the same symptoms. I informed C Angels that ethically and morally they have a duty to call everyone they sold these sick kittens to and disclose this information. C Angels should not be breeding cats and does not know the first thing about breeding. C Angels was treating the kittens symptoms homeopathically and failed to bring them to the Vet. Had I not done so this kitten would have died.
