*Consumer Comment: Bat Cave Cattery Defense
I went home with my kitten and let her settle in by herself for the night and following morning. Once I got home that night, I noticed the poor kitten's rectum was sticking out of her rear a good 2cm. [continued below]....
The emergency clinic took all night before finally having to opt for a purse loop stitch to be placed in her rear to keep the rectum in place and from coming out again. Except the next morning the kitten now was blocked due to her lovely case of Giardia. Not even a full 24 hours of having this kitten in my arms and we are already at the vets and not by choice with the threat of returning to the vets due to how blocked she was becoming even with help to clean her rear. I did not trust leaving her alone all day while I worked. This was not something I expected from a kitten I paid over a grand for. I've seen healthier kittens rescued from under trailers, yet kittens being bred are in far worse shape? How does this happen?
I asked for part of the vet bills to be paid. I fail to see how it's acceptable for 2 vet visits for major issues is ok for an animal I've owned for a mere 2 days at this point. That's when Melissa went from "Prolapsed rectums are normal he he" to ignoring me and refusing to contact me anymore.
I had to get my mother involved to email her since mine went unanswered. My mother got the blunt of her nasty gram over the matter, and she continued to pass blame to everything and anything but herself.
"days later I get an e mail from ____ about her anus, which I've been in the animal field for many years, and I've also taken it upon myself to spend all of yesterday speaking with multiple vets, and other breeders about this. All were just plain shocked that she took her in to the ER to have her anus stitched up. All were in agreement that the gun was jumped way to soon, and that she was not even given a chance for her body to go back into it's natural state. that this has been known to happen, but given chance will correct its self.... WHICH goes back into place if given a chance to do so and not shoved into an emergency vets hands for surgery. (again should have not happened until her body was given a chance to adjust to her new environment)"
" I am in no way responsible for any care or surgeries that you guys have put her through... We are not responsible for any bills incurred. ."
" I also have SPCA, do an inspection of my entire home (which is my cattery) all have come back perfect scores." --- Um, the SPCA only does inspections when others have made complaints. Vets come to inspect your house for personal accreditation that you have a healthy cattery. Appears I am not the only one.
Come to find out later she also refuses to let anyone in her house because her children do not like "strangers invading their personal space"... what?
Lets not forget the fact that she bred 5, that's right 5! cats at once! 20 something kittens sold in one month? Kitten mill much?
The kitten is now on her 5th surgery all within a matter of 1.5 months of ownership. She's has had a total of 3 prolapsed rectums (first prolapse was out half an inch, second an inch, the third time 2 inches.... normal, goes back in on their own she says. I'd like to see her with her rectum protruding out the length of half her arm and tell me it's normal!). She will need to be on medication for the rest of her life to ensure this doesn't happen again. Vet bills are well over $1200 at this point. And yet the breeder still refuses to take any responsibility for her actions. This isn't genetics, no, it's pure neglect on her end. Not properly worming her animals and allowing them to get this sick then dare asking over a grand for a kitten is just criminal. All she cares about is money. She could care less about the well being of her animals.
Better yet she will rave about all the breeders she works with. Yet when contacted these breeders, non of them know of her. Her entire cattery and statements on her site are nothing but lies.
