Beware of Zafiro Persians Breeder / made falsh Acusation
Karin Tivoli, owner of an unlicensed cattery in El Paso County, Colorado Springs, CO named Fabulous persians.
Claims to uphold Cat Fancier Association but has no champions or grand champions of her line, or participates in show. She gives her Kittens away before that are 3-4 months of age, and has admitted to having refunded buyers there money due to "serious" problems that have arised. My suspicion due to giving her kittens away too early.
Upon asking to wait until 4 months of age to purchase and take home, I was told that she was not able to care for her kittens for 2 more weeks due to her own personal appointments, and that her cats would be in the care of someone else, however, they were not able to take care of kittens only adults. Upon further thought, she then came back to me saying she would make arrangements to pick up from the same caretaker - who magically could handle the care of a kitten under 3 months of age. I found her ad on ebay classifieds and hoobly.com. I was told to give a deposit for a cat, which then later was not available, and had to choose another cat. I never signed a document, or was ever disclosed that the deposit was non-refundable. After having put doubt in my head about proper care and handling of her kittens, I declined the sale. However, she refused to give back my deposit. She is a thief because she refuses to give me my money back for a cat i did not put the deposit down for in the first place, she is also a liar by having never disclosed her policies until after the fact. Bad business woman, bad cat fancier, and should not be trusted, or purchase from. She does not follow industry standards and is a novice breeder with refusal to learn proper practices. Buyer Beware!
