Karin Tivoli / Refusal to return deposit

1 Colorado Springs, CO, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

She never showed her cats, she paid for the titles with the cat - she has no knowledge or did any of the work to champion her cats - the breeder she paid the titles for did - so give credit were credit is due. The pictures i have posted of my other cats parents are from my breeder that has passed away, and/or given to me with permission. I am only honoring my breeders 50 year + legacy in hopes that it will not die.

If you cannot see by the language barrier- how difficult it is to communicate effectively with Karin - as she misconstrues and misunderstand fruquently. I did have the money, but became concerned when i heard she was putting an unknown stranger without the ability to care for a kitten during her absence, and giving the cats away too early. and after further speaking to Karin it is apparent that she does not understand how to properly type her cats for show or breeding quality, because she mentioned things that were condridictory to the CFA standard. I question her care and her knowledge. Not a reputable breeder or fancier in my eyes - I did not trust after developing my relationship with her further, and for that all i want is to go our seperate ways, and have my deposit returned. Its very simple - however, she chooses to make it difficult.

    I have also filed a complaint to the Colorado Attourney General on Karin Tivoli and Fabulous Persians.

    Also, I recently moved from Chicago to New mexico, and all my cats have come with me. I have 1 small cattery with only 1 breeding male and 2 breeding females. However, I have kept more cats in my care as a fancier. I also only have 1 to 2 litters a year. I am active in show and have championed my own line. Karin pretends to know everything about me- when she is the one truely making false accusations.

    Hi, Jaime-

    YOU CANNOT GO WRONG HERE!!! Our little boy that we received from Karin is simply going to break some hearts when and if he ever has to go kitty heaven in the sky! We love this adorable little loverboy! Beautiful? TOP OF THE LINE! Sometimes I just look at him and wish I could look that beautiful!!! Honestly, leave it to a male not to even have to try... his coat is lucious and eyes big and dreamy!!! He is perfectly proportioned, Lord knows you don't see me saying that about myself! Healthy? This little charmer has the most healthy appetite, grooming, bowels, and behavior I have ever seen in any cat I have EVER had! In my vets own words, "Brenda, this cat is absolutely amazing!" He liked it there, too! All his records were current he's a very happy feline. Attentive? He learned his name the first week we had him and actually came when I used it. He also loved to be held and petted and even purred upon simply talking to him! He is very curious and playful and follows me about the house to be in which ever room I am in (sign of a persian who loves their human). This little boy has not even been 'fixed' yet, and he is already such a lover it amazes me...males are usually even more cuddly after they are 'altered'. He often falls asleep in the crook of my arm lying on his back while I rub his neck and chest (another position that demonstrates a cat who loves his humans if he is willing to be this submissive.) I have had him for not quite 2 months, and he still hasn't even required a bathing (of course, I do not let him outdoors). He is even tempered with his grooming requirements and LOVES treats! We are all very attached and this little boy compliments us perfectly and hopefully - for a very, very long time! My twin 8 yr olds argue over who Elvis (the name we chose) prefers...I quite simply remind them that of course it is me, the goddess of kitty food!!

    Karin is why Elvis is who he is! She assuredly gives him what he needs and then much more! She had socialized him by 8 weeks of age and that's why he is agreeable to let us then continue doing so. This is not a shy or 'skittish' cat with any emotional problems what so ever. He has not been subjected to any aggressive behavior and therefore is not aggressive nor negatively responsive. I think Karin actually stays at home with her cats and is with them often. They are not left in cages and are not afraid of adventure or people. She is very kind, educated in the field, and cares where her cats are placed and how they are raised. She's extremely easy to do business with and very trusting. My children have wanted to return to visit her ever since we met with her! I stay in contact with her and send photos and information that assures her of Elvis' adoptive family choice and his well-being. I intend to have this cat a good many years, and expect to know Karin an equal amount of time. Please let me know if you should have any further questions or need more help, I'd be delighted to offer it.

    Best of luck with your decision, truly. I don't think Karin realizes she has such perfect little darlings, she offers a more than fair price and could easily ask more! Fabulous Persians and furry balls of joy!!

    Elvis' mom,
