Complaint Review: Cat Fanciers' Association Inc CFA
Cat Fanciers' Association Inc CFAP. O. Box 1005 Manasquan, New Jersey U.S.A.
Cat Fanciers' Association Inc CFA WHY C.F.A .Banned me for life Exposed to America exposing what CFA has tried to hide for years. CFA has not had any waves from the public, and they went about their cat fancy business Manasquan New Jersey
I had a CFA registered cattery until I found this site.
When I filed a protest with CFA about exposing Melanie Lowry & how Ms Lowry knew 1st hand about the abuse & crueltyat the hands of her best friend Debra Mitchell & what she was doing to her cats. And the facts that Melanie Lowry was actually taking care of Debra Mitchell cats while she was in jail, [through the direction of a CFA rescue] that was when CFA realized I was considered a danger to their organization [or they call it the cat fancy].
Why? Because I would be exposing what CFA has tried to hide for years. CFA has not had any waves from the public, and they went about their cat fancy business, having shows and all they they do. Meanwhile the only real time you hear about a bad pedigree cat breeder abusing and neglecting their cats is when it hits the news papers.
And of course CFA puts in their 2 cents to justify their dealings with that partiular bad breeder who has gone to jail for crimes against animals, CFA says, "your services will be suspened for life." CFA then washes their hands of this bad breeder and goes on to the next "crimes against animals" case this this goes on and on.
And basically know one really brought the details to light except when it was posted on this site. The case with Debra Mitchell was when CFA realized there is gonna be serious problems with Rose Marie Zizzo. That was the reason why my services were suspened for life because CFA was now being watched, by my organization and I was now taking official complaints from buyers that CFA should have been addressing all these years. But CFA said, they dont want to be "cat police" & if you have an issue with a cat breeder bring it to small claims court.
CFA has a tremdous responsibilty to the communities of the USA & the world, since they do promote & encourge cat breeding. And in that very practice of encouraging and promoting cat breeding it is essential for a breeder to have many cats under one roof and have many cats for many different reasons for the purpose of breeding the best of traits to the goal of producing the perfect cat. To bring the cat/s to show and have or be the best of the breed.
CFA has alot of very informative and very responsible programs set up dealing with the pedigree cat fancy, and I do commend them for all they have evolved from & all that they are involved in. CFA has cetainly done their research and done their home work.
But there are a few issues I would like to share that CFA needs to give serious attention to and consider as part of their current updated programs.
 Dealing with complaints from buyers purchasing pedigree cats
a. A registered CFA cat breeder needs to sell healthy kittens
b.Be a honest breeder
c. Not have a kitten mill, like Melanie Lowry who actually makes a living selling these poor creatures. IF CFA put their stamp of approval on Melanie Lowry's cattery by giving her a Cattery of Excellence Certificate then CFA approves of Lollimops underhanded business practices and the selling of FIP infected kittens & conducting fraud with her buyers, that is horrible and very bad what is that saying about CFA?
Cattery of Excellence Program is failing terribly
a.If Melanie Lowry can get a Cattery of Excellence certificate the program has failed terribly & has absolutely no merit at all. It just represents a false sence to satisfy the ideal of goodness. In other words its just pacifying buyers of pedigree cats, which is an insult.
b.Demand the cat breeder get a vet that is NOTtheir own so this vet will be harder on the cattery conditions of the breeder. And not be bribed by money or movtived by greed
Reason for cat disease's is 100% mainly because of the diets of store bought cat food.
a. This WINN program is spending money on research, for what?
b. If a person goes to the store and buys cat food and looks what is inside of this cat food one automatically knows all the drugs, chemicals and suppplements into what they call cat food, all that is killing our cats and causing serious diseases unheard of 50 years ago. It does not take a rocket scientist to know this.
c. The perfect diet for a cat is a live mouse, bird, snake, rabbit, beef, deer, bird eggs etc., etc. That is the facts of life, like it or not. Manufactures of cat food can not duplicate the diet of a cat/feline so it makes this poison food that is literally causing diseases unheard of 50 years ago. Its not natural for cats to crunch hard cat dry food, its unheard of.
d.Cat must have raw meat diet, period.
4. A CFA cat breeder is an extention & representive of CFA itself
a. If CFA wants to keep a clean reputable image they need to start disgarding some of their liabilities [like Melanie Lowry with 37 pages of history in only 2 years of research & not to mention the 7 complaints under her belt by her buyers.] Melanie Lowry is destroying CFA's reputation & another one is Betty Sleep, Jackie Springfield just to mention a few, of these registered CFA breeders are an epitome of what bad cat breeders are about and what CFA does not want to be identifed with. And are casting a very dark cloud over the image of what CFA stands for eithically & honorably, worldwide. And these liabilities will be CFA's downfall for sure.
How? With the wonder of the internet & computer access this site goes all around the globe and since CFA is known globally, this information and insider secrets will be revealed and sooner or later people, breeders, public, consumers, advocates against cat breeders will put 2 and 2 together to realize the role CFA is interjecting into the environment promoting and encouraging cat breeding and not taking responsibility for their CFA registered breeders actions & bad unethical business practices.As an example of this the public just questioned CFA Welfare Chairperson Linda Berg why CFA is still allowing Melanie Lowry to cheat, defraud buyers and still allow to breed [Read CFA unintelligentable answer to this serious issue]
Then an unheard of response from George Eigenhauser counsel for CFA giving advice of a legal nature. Its funny when I wrote to him asking him about abuse with a cat Breeder Michelle Casserd it fell on deaf ears, but perhaps CFA is starting to realize they are not just dealing with felines and better start dealing with human beings once and for all.
CFA is a organization that loves pedigree cats and cats in general, but what CFA does not truly understand the members of their services & fanciers are human beings that own cats, and CFA will not address the very issues that this organization has created. What is it? Human Being issues, such as complaints by buyers of these pedigree cats or between cat breeders themselves [not involving show issues]. I would suggest CFA hire a public relation coordinator or get rid of their unsalvageable registered CFA breeders.
When these CFA registered cat breeders have a litter of kittens and they are breeding at such alarming rates only CFA knows how fast, as they have the litter registrations to prove how alarming the breeding is. The breeders have to sell the kittens as one can not keep all these kittens. Well one of the responsibilities CFA has neglected to deal with is issues of dis-satisfaction of buyers from these pedigree breeders. That is the reason this site was founded to deal with the effects of bad cat breeders, bad breeding and business practices.
CFA says I have "Conduct Detrimental" to the cat fancy community. Well, read first hand what CFA had to say & why I was banned for life
