They decided to put Dixie down and we requested an autopsy. It tested positive for FIP. We only had Dixie for 3 weeks. She was very tiny. I don't know her exact DOB. I've repeatedly asked Karen for her DOB. She changed their DOB's several times. The other one, Seymour, slowly started to get sick, too. She stopped eating and we started to feed her from a syringe. The vet gave us meds. Then she started to breathe laboriously. The vet believed that she got FIP, too.
Karen told me to send Seymour back to her and she'll nurse her back to good health but the vet said that she was too sick to be flown back to NC. We decided to put her down and we requested an autopsy for her, too. It tested positive for FIP. So we only had Seymour 3 weeks after Dixie's passing.
Karen Hill gave us our money back but she wouldn't reimburse us for $3,000 vet bills. I copied all the papers and tried to sue her for vet bill reimbursement but it's a local thing so I had to get an attorney in NC to sue her. She was very dishonest with me. I've repeatedly asked her for their info and date of births. She had not done it. She has not proved herself to be trustworthy.
I knew another woman who purchased a sick kitten from Karen Hill. She lives in Rockford, IL. She spent $5,000 to take her tiny sick kitten for blood transfusions. I told her what happened to my kittens and then she realized that her kitten may be sick with FIP so she mentioned it to the vet so she had some fluid drawn from her stomach and it was sticky and yellow which is indicative of FIP. Karen Hill never told Laura that her kitten may have FIP until I told her what happened to my kittens.
We believe that Karen Hill is conducting unsafe breeding practices and continuing to sell sick kittens. Karen Hill should be removed from the cat breeders' list and the state of North Carolina should investigate her and put her Singapura breeding out of business.
