Complaint Review: DANDY BLUE BRITS BRITISH SHORTHAIRS
DANDY BLUE BRITS BRITISH SHORTHAIRSPatterson, New Jersey U.S.A.
DANDY BLUE BRITS, Dandy Blue, Lucy Menshov, Dandy Blue British Shorthairs, DandyBluebrits.com, Sold sick Kitten, Eventually Died, Failed to REFUND OR REPLACE. Will NOT even respond to emails! Patterson New Jersey
*Consumer Comment: I bought a British Shorthair from this breeder
*General Comment: My cat from Dandy Blue NJ died too
*REBUTTAL Individual responds: BRIAN from drugs to cats, same practices
Within 3 days one of the kittens (the one that eventually died just 2 months later) started to exhibit signs of herpes virus, and conjunctivitis in both eyes. She had an upper respitory infection, and was put on anti-biotics. Her eyes were "bug like" not shaped like a normal british shorthair should be, certainly not a "show/breeder". After over 200.00 on meds, and 3 vet visits, eventually the kitten slumped over and looked dead. I brought her back to life by nursing her with a bottle 6 times a day, and medicating her again. Within 3 days, she finally died.
I sent Lucy Menshov from dandybluebrits.com a new jersey british shorthair breeder an email and photos of the dead kitten. She told me that the ONLY WAY she would replace the kitten, was if I paid over 500.00 to have a necropsy done, AND that the vet could CERTIFY that the kitten had the VERY SAME illness that killed it, the day I purchased it. Obviously, it would not be fair to ask me to pay yet ANOTHER 500.00 for an autopsy, when the next sentence in her email was stating that then she would decide if I should receive another kitten, OR JUST LOSE MY 1500.00!
Needless to say, after numerous emails, she now just completley ignores me. I spent 1500 on the kitten, and over 400 on vet bills. I am out 1900, and my family is devestated. I have never in all my days heard of such a horrible breeder, who could care less about her animals, and the poor people she sells them to.
My daughter and wife are destraught, and I myself am very angry. I will now seek legal action to recover my costs, along with pain and suffering. Lucy Menshov of dandy blue brits british short hair cats is a FRAUD. She does not care about her customers and left me out in the cold, with a dead cat and a HOLE IN MY WALLET. Please post back if you have had the same problem with this kitten mill. I didn't even realize, though they were the same age, these 2 kittens I bought from her were not EVEN RELATED!
