Im having serious health issues with my Sphynx from Michelle of Purrsus. I appreciate how "supportive" she has tried to be with me through emails but what it boils down to. I paid a lot of money for a cat that was sick when we picked him up at the airport. There is no excuses for this. I never really had an issue with shipping, she did however cancel it and delay it because she thought the cat was still a bit too small to fly, then she gave us another excuse about the weather being too cold to ship
a Sphynx, I asked her if the plane was heated, she said yes.. then what does the weather have anything to do with the Sphynx being shipped (I have spoke to other breeders, they ship their cats when its in the winter with snow on the ground. However, Im sure not all breeders have the same opinion)... now I sometimes wonder maybe it was because he was
sick so she kept delaying to ship him out until he got better... and shes always spoke to me so she hasnt ignored me ... that is probably the only thing I have nice to say about this breeder but I am having a nightmare of an experience that has made me so upset and sick to my stomach. I feel so guilty because I have 2 other cats before I bought a Sphynx. Now all of my babies are very sick, on and off for months. A year is around the corner. The idea of a breeder and paying A LOT OF
money, you hope to buy a cat that is healthy. Im very aware that not every cat is going to be healthy until the day the cat drops dead of old age, I know this. But the day you pick up your cat at the AIRPORT and its sick, I dont expect that with the kind of money I paid for the cat. This breeder told me there is no problems in shipping cats, nothing goes wrong, doesnt cause health problems, it is very safe.

The day I picked up my Sphynx from the airport, he was coughing, sneezing and wheezing with very very runny eyes that had discharge which he couldnt even open his eyes. Michelle had the nerve to tell me shipping cats can cause uris... why couldnt she of mentioned this before instead of saying there is no problems in shipping cats? Her lying is probably what has caused my Sphynx to get sick in the first place (Unless he was sick all this time). I did some research, it can be true, flying a cat can cause it to get sick, however, I dont appreciate Michelle telling me its ok to ship a cat, dont worry, there is no health issues... then when my cat arrives sick, she tells me flying can cause uris. Nightmare. I hate people that lie like that.

Then 2 weeks later, my other 2 cats which I have owned for over 9 years without any issues with them, all come down with the same sneezing, coughing and wheezing symptoms, my vet told me not to bring them in unless they get discharge from the nose. I asked about about my Sphynxs eyes having discharge, very runny and he cant open his eyes.. he told me to bring him in, my vet said its very doubtful flying him in a airplane caused such a bad eye infection like within a hour or so. He has most likely had the herpes virus for a while. Im not a vet but I see what hes saying. The state my Sphynxs eyes were in, that did not happen within a hour on the plane. He had really bad eyes when we picked him up at the airport. Another week goes by, all my cats come down with eye infections. Another vet visit. I have been paying for eye drops on and off for months (And the vet consultation fee) ever since I have picked up my Sphynx. My vet has his doubts about this breeder. Its all very suspicious. She even promised me "scans" of the parents and said theyd be in the crate, which they werent. This breeder is playing the innocent card, the sugarcoating and lying is annoying. The only person she is fooling is herself. She had the nerve to tell me its a big mystery how my Sphynx got sick. Oh, its not rocket science. AT THE AIRPORT THE CAT WAS SICK, therefore, you have given me a sick cat.

My other 2 cats have NEVER been sick for MANY MANY years. Now theyre sick on and off since the Sphynx arrived, same with the Sphynx, hes always got discharge in his eyes, this poor cat lives with eye drops and no matter how much Lysine, these cats are still sick on and off. All my cats get eye infections on and off now. He has ulcers all over his tongue and lips (Trust me, its not pretty), all his teeth have grown in crooked. He has to have two teeth extracted (The fangs are the worst, they are crooked and very abnormal/extra long). How terribly sick this Sphynx is and has been, my vet has doubts about the the shipping/flying causing herpes/health issues. Michellesays shes going to help me get through this hard time with me.. really? Are you going to wave your magic wand and pay for my vet bills or refund me my money? Are you going to take the heart pain away from me because all my babies are sick on and off? Are you going to make me feel better knowing that Victor has to get two teeth extracted? No. I dont need support. All I wanted was a healthy cat which I should of got with the amount of money I paid. There is no point in getting this Sphynx replaced so Ive never pushed for it.. whats the point.. hes passed the herpes virus on to my other cats anyway. I  would only be bringing another Sphynx in to basically get sick wow disaster at its finest. Its a shame. I really love this breed/Sphynx, I was hoping to get one more Sphynx but I just cant do it now because
he/she will most likely get sick too. Its just wrong what this breeder has done.

I feel sorry for Pepe (Another complaint about this breeder). She has been victimized and treated like shes a crazy person for only speaking the truth about how deeply hurt she is for getting a cat with health issues. Some people just need to pull their head out of their behind and have some respect. Im not arguing with this breeder like Maggie did. Waste of my time. I know Michelle is only going to lie and sugarcoat to protect her business and make it seem like Im some crazy person thats out to get her for no reason or to portray me as some stupid person and her cat was 100% healthy until it arrived at my house so its out of her hands and its alllll my fault and Im just looking for someone to blame it on LOL ok right... I guess the cat being sick at the airport was just my imagination, lets blame it on the flying and the airport shall we, meanwhile she told me shipping doesnt cause any health issues... shame on her for lying. I have my doubts also. I just have this feeling this Sphynx was sick before he was even shipped. The sores all over his lips and tongue, the abnormal long fangs and crooked teeth... poor cat. Just be very careful, especially if you have other cats in your home. I feel so guilty, my poor babies are sick because of me. I didnt do my homework, I figured I could trust Michelle and now look. All I know is that what is done is done. I will be paying out a lot on
vet bills for a very long time now.rnrnProtect, sugarcoat. Blame it on me, I must not know what Im talking about or the flying caused the sickness or Victor arriving sick is a big mystery, he must of caught it from my other two cats which havent been sick for many years until Victor arrived. I guess its just one big mystery...rnIm not arguing with Michelle or anyone.

This is a fake report by GroovySphynx.com / Tracy Hosfelt

AUTHOR: Sphynxie - (United States of America)

This is obviously a fake report by Tracy Hosfelt or one of her fellow scammers.  This story is exactly how Tracy Hosfelt of GroovySphynx.com rips off people buy sending them sick kittens.  Selling the same kitten to several buyers.  Michelle is a honest person.  This is slander and is ridiculous !!!!  Purrsrus kittens are healthy.

Very Happy with my Kitten from Michelle

AUTHOR: Blaylar Elf - (United States of America)

I recently traded kittens with Michelle, she wanted to start breeding Elf and I wanted a kitten that she had so we traded. Michelle was always open, honest, and willing to work with me through the entire process. I ask lots of questions anytime I'm getting a kitten from someone and Michelle was no different. I grew to have a level of confidence in Michelle and we traded kittens. I arranged to have the kitten shipped to me via a heated cargo plane, and I knew full well the risk I was taking. Even in a heated cargo plane the guarantee is only that they will keep the cargo hold above 50 degrees which is too cold for a Sphynx in my opinion. There is also documented information that stressing a cat out, as flying alone in a cold cargo hold would, can cause viruses, that all cats carry, to mutate and become a problem. However, my kitten arrived in Denver safely, fat and sassy, and I would gladly buy another from her. If I was this person that had a chronically ill cat I would consider finding another vet that could properly treat the cat. If a vet doesn't know what they are doing the easy answer is to say it is a breeder issue and basically wash their hands of it.
