She sends sick cats! Her cattery is infested with Feline Herpes!
We received two kittens from her 9 months after we sent her a check! Finally had to threaten her with my lawyer to send them! We asked for a female and a male and got two males. Not a problem I will love any animal! But we paid more for a female! We received the kittens and they were very sick 1/4/16. So like she recommended we took them to the vet. She also replied "They have a cat cold and its on its way out". Why would you send sick cats? We would have understood if she had better communication with her clients. We had every test imaginable done to get to the bottom of what these poor sick babies had. The tests came back positive for Feline Corona Virus(Feline coronavirus (FCoV) is a positive-stranded RNA virus that is infectious to cats worldwide.) Which can lead to FIP which is fatal! They also have Mycoplasma(mycoplasmas can cause feline diseases such as feline conjunctivitis, lower respiratory tract infections, and polyarthritis). But that's not all! They also have Feline Herpes(Feline viral rhinotracheitis (FVR) is an upper respiratory infection of the nose and throat in cats. It is caused by, and also know as feline herpesvirus 1 (FHV-1). Cats of all ages are susceptible, but kittens are at a higher risk and may be infected at about five weeks of age.). All of these are only transmitted by other cats. We have no other cats or animals. So it had to come from her! All of her cats are passing it around. Using the same litter box and drink from the water dishes is enough to transmit it. I am one very pissed off person! How can this woman be such an animal herself to sell sick and potentially dying kittens! Shame on you(ANN)! DO NOT BUY KITTENS OR CATS FROM THIS WITCH!!! I will copy a letter written by my veterinarian at the bottom of this page! I have already contacted the board at TICA!

To Whom It May Concern:
This letter is in regards to my recent examination and diagnostic findings of two kittens recently purchased by Mrs Alexandra Valentine. The kittens referenced are Winston a 14 week old Ragdoll born 10/05/2015 and Addison (Bean) a 13 week old Ragdoll born 10/12/2015. Mrs Valentine states the kittens were exhibiting signs of an upper respiratory infection when she first received them, which was four days prior to bringing them to our clinic.
The following are the results of testing we have performed on both kittens. A Fluorescein Ophthalmic Dye test was performed on Winston’s eyes and was negative. Additional diagnostic testing submitted on Winston and Bean included a Feline Serology (FeLV/FIV/FeCo) and a Feline Upper Respiratory Pathogens Profile. Results indicated that Winston and Bean are positive for Feline Corona Virus (1:400 titer), Feline Herpesvirus (FHV-1), and Mycoplasma felis. Appropriate antibiotic therapy has been initiated initiated and includes Minocycline and continuation of Viralys for both kittens. Treatment is ongoing.
