Persian Kitten — Breeder stole $1000 from Kid
My name is Alisha. My mom and I are the owners of AJ's Kool Katz. I'm 14 years old and I would like to warn everyone about a breeder named Kim Jaros who is affiliated with Barbara Redalia of Tuleburg Cattery. I contacted Barbara because I was looking for a show quality chocolate kitten. She recommended I talk to her partner who she breeds with. I ended up paying Kim Jaros $1000 (In full, including shipping costs). Just a few days the kitten was to be shipped, she told us she'd be including some medication along with the kitten and carrier so I could administer it myself, this was for Chlamydia. My mom and I started to wonder if there was anything else wrong with the kitten. Kim mentioned how the kitten had a pooping problem because it was upset about being quarantined to a cage! My mom noticed in one of the photos of the kitten, it had patches of missing fur so she asked what it was. Kim said "it's just a fungus" and tried to change the subject so my mom said "it sounds like Ringworm". She finally admitted it was but then said it was gone. My mom told her not to ship the kitten until it is retested to make sure the Ringworm was gone and was able to speak to the veterinarian on the phone. She promised to do this. The next day, she said she already booked the flight without retesting the kitten so I asked for a refund. She became furious. She said Ringworm was "Piddly-### ###" and to "go to hell" and then hung up. The next day, she promised to send my refund. It's been several months and I have not received a penny. I cannot believe someone would steal $1000 from a kid! It took me forever to earn that money. I babysat, cleaned houses, and saved Christmas money and Birthday money to buy my dream cat to enter in shows. I asked her how does she sleep at night, and she said "she sleeps rather well". Any other breeder would had offered another kitten in place or money back. I would hate for anyone else to be scammed by this crook.
