In May of 2008 I purchased a female kitten for breeding from Dallasrags . The kitten was raised from 1 day old by Minkcats because I was told that DallasRags house had burned totally down. The kitten was born 20 march 2008. The kitten was sent to me on 2 September 2008. When she arrived here, she was very underweight. At almost 6 months of age, she was only 3 pounds, and was sneezing. Within two days the sneezing was worse and with green bubbles, her eyes were badly swollen and running. I also received NO BLUE SLIP!
I immediately took her to my vet and he was shocked at her weight and told me that she had no muscles at all.
I then emailed all of this information to the breeder who raised her (minkcats)and she told me that the kitten was healthy when she left Dallas airport !! She also told me that if I could provide a letter documenting the kittens poor health from my vet, she would refund me part of the money I had paid. So I did what she asked me to do. I sent her a letter from my vet outlining her medical problems, weight problems and her health and what treatment she had received.But since then I have received NO response at all from her and still have received NO BLUE SLIP.
The kitten was also treated by my vet for feline herpes (l-lysine and viroptic) so it is a question as to whether she could ever be used for breeding at all. Her eyes were badly involved.
I asked TICA if their was a litter registration and they said that was done and I needed to get the blue slip from the breeder.TICA mailed me this information on 24 Sept 2008. Now it is 8 December and still no blue slip.The kitten is still sneezing but no green bubbles thank god.She has become a better weight now (5 pounds) but still she is not in normal shape or normal size for her age. All my other cats and kittens got the same medical trouble 2 weeks after the Dallasragskitten came into my house.
I even emailed the breeder that I have filed a complaint with TICA but she still does not respond.I am left with a sick underweight cat, no DNA testresult which i had to pay extra, no blue slip and no response. Do not buy a kitten their or take it first to your own vet for a check-up.
