British Shorthair Kittens / Bad Breeding Ability
Its been incredibly unfortunate for us as a family coming across this breeder.
My husband and I went on a search for our first family pet after the news that we were unable to have children. I had always loved cats and this breed had stood out due to the Whiskas Advert.
We collected our kitten a few month back, a nice looking tabby. When we went to collect him, the house was unclean, tidy but grubby. The lass was most unhelpful in answering our questions and wouldn't allow us to use the bathroom after a 6 hour car journey.
We were told the paperwork wasn't ready and it would be posted to us I spoke to the GCCF and the litter was registered weeks prior (we are still waiting) and we were told the kitten had been wormed and de-flead yet he was covered in fleas and when he went to toilet worms were moving around the tray. We took him to the vets and they said he was underweight, unhealthy and had a variety of health issues. Vets decided to do bloods and titre levels were so high that he was shedding a virus called FIP the wet kind, and was put to sleep.
As anyone can imagine we are terribly upset, if anyone can point us to a proper breeder we would be most grateful.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS WOMAN.
