Letter to Melanie Lowry AKA Annie Westlake
Published by a Concerned Cat Lover on 5/23/08

Chocolate & Lilac Lovers BEWARE:
Anyone seeking these beautiful colors should BEWARE of the town crier, also known as Melanie Lowry, also know as Annie Westlake. These are just a few of the names that she uses to practice the ultimate deception!

I have sat as an observer and watched this all unfold and a few simple questions come to mind:

1.) HOW can you Ms. Lowry claim to be such a "victim" and claim to have "lost your cattery business/income" when YOU are the very person who has led many people to your unhappy customer's site to read about you. Good grief woman, do you think that anyone in their right mind would want to buy from you after you yourself lead them to a site that airs all of your own dirty laundry? It is very clear that you are only interested in "the fight" and playing the victim rather than to have a healthy cattery. Afterall, why ELSE would you do this? Rose Marie is not the only person who was interested in breeding these rare colors that has fallen for your manipulating lies. She might be the only one that has a website to warn others about you, but she is not alone in her opinion of you, not by a long shot.

2.) How many newbie's have you, Ms. Lowry/Westlake, promised "show quality" and then sent them a problem animal or one with no papers? Do you fail to provide papers because your name is now mud? WHY would you treat people who were kind to you inspite of all the warnings not to be, like dirt? Just like the story of the Scorpion and the Frog, you can't help yourself because it is your nature, even to your own demise. And do you think that just because a Persian/Himalayan has an extreme face that it makes it "show quality"?? Are you not aware of all the other factors in a "Show Cat"?? Perhaps if you had stopped fighting and suing your unhappy customers long enough to concentrate on the animals then so much of the things that you are accused of wouldn't be true?? But, they are, and that is why you won't let visitors come into your home. More than one, more than two, actually three different people who don't care for each other at all, have the same opinion in common of you and the environment that your cats are in.

3.) WHY would there be a chocolate-persian site with 2 hidden pages?? If you haven't done anything wrong, then why in the world are these pages hidden? Who in their right mind would trust anything on that site?? Or pay a fee to use it???

Perhaps it is early dementia setting in that would make you think that what you are doing is okay or right in any way shape or form. You have the "tainted touch", everything and everyone that you come in contact with ends up tainted from it. You found a way to get attention through Rose Marie's site and you have fed from it and used other people's kindness and exploited and manipulated for your own benefit. You are a "perpetual victim", that is what you live for. Your greatest mistake is that you have mistaken kindness for weakness. You are always claiming to be "getting out of cats", well, PLEASE DO!!

To become infored of the fradulent scam these 2 bad cat breeders are running against innocent buyers of expensive pedigree cats please read these 2 sites:

    If this person has a beef with Ms. Lowry or Ms. Westlake why doesn't she take it up with that person instead of being a chicken and posting it here with all this mis-information? If you are going to say something about someone make sure you have your facts correct.

    Ms. Lowry has never sued any of her customers, ever. She doesn't have to they are are all happy except the one disgruntled one that has been harassing her for 6 years over a cat she bought, kept with 15 other cats in a travel trailer before it supposedly got sick. Ms. Zizzo never bothered to follow her contractual agreement and provide the breeder with a death certificate nor the required necropsy to prove that the cat was dead and what the cat died of. If you don't do that then one has to wonder what you are hiding.

    Ms. Westlake has her own cats to feed, water and take care of, she does not have time nor the inclination to sell someone else's cats.

    No one ever "tried" to get attention thru Zizzo's site, why would they? Who likes being a victim? Only this sick person would know about that. That is just some of this stupid persons mis-information.

    Try holding yourself accountable for all your lies and BS!

    AND, when you have something to say to someone don't be two faced and say it here, be accountable and take it to the person you have a problem with Miss Chicken S***!

    Concerned cat lover, my eye.
    Both the original post and the first comment were made by none other than RoseMarie Zizzo. Google her name. Read what comes up. She's a whacko, folks.
    Funny how Zizzo has appointed herself the protector of purebred cats, but fails to mention that she has been suspended from The Cat Fanciers' Association for life. That's right. Zizzo cannot show cats OR register them with the world's largest registry of pedigreed cats.

    I also don't see Zizzo mentioning the lawsuit she lost last year over the slander on her website. A judgement was handed down against Zizzo in the amount of $7, 500.00 for her harassment of another Persian cat breeder. See a copy of the judgement here:
    Do you think she's paid up? Of course not.

    How Melanie Lowry of Catinality Cattery
    Whines Her Way To Sympathy

    Successful Failures
    If we lived in a time when personal accountability and responsibility were held in high regard, a time during which choosing victimhood from a list of social options would seem utterly stupid, it would suffice to say that successful people aren't victims. But those are not the times we live in, and to some people, perpetual victimhood of one kind or another actually seems an attractive option.

    When one examines the lives of successful people, one is impressed by the absence of traits they share in common (which is why self-help books that promise to make you successful don't really deliver). But there is one trait that all successful people have in common — they are not victims. Victims do not inspire confidence, they inspire pity. Seasoned investors don't buy into victimhood, because it is a losing proposition.

    Successful people don't become victims for another reason — they know if they won't take responsibility when things go wrong, they lose the right to take credit when things go right. This is a statement, one among many, of the symmetry principle. Perpetual victims are subject to the symmetry principle also, but because of their utterly negative outlook on life, they don't expect anything ever to go right, so being a victim has no downside.

    Successful people are able to read positive signs in a bleak landscape, and they can act on what they see in a creative, constructive way. Victims, by contrast, look out at the same landscape and only see opportunities for further victimhood. Successful people and victims both create self-fulfilling narratives.

    Here's a case history of success. A young man is diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, thought to be a rather serious condition, but also one that is very controversial, both in deciding who has the condition, and in how to proceed (more on Asperger's here).

    There is a lot of latitude in Asperger's, and the more responsible researchers counsel skepticism as to both diagnosis and treatment. An individual could take this diagnosis and use it as an excuse to be a lifelong victim (some have done just that). Or, because those diagnosed with Asperger's tend to be bright, one might choose to take it as a sign of superior ability.

    What did our young man do? Did he try for sympathy and start a pattern of self-victimization that might have lasted his entire life? Or did he accept the cards he was dealt and find his place in the world?

    Well, he did the latter. He became the richest man in the world: Bill Gates.

    Most successful people learn how to be successful, they are not born with an instinct for success. By the same token, perpetual, professional victims are trained, not born. Where do they get this training?
