Furry Dream Cattery in Brooklyn New York sold to my family a kitten who was sick with Feline panleukopenia virus (FPV). Our beloved kitten named Funky was put to sleep at just 16 weeks. The hospital where we had our Funky on supportive care did everything they could, we asked for the most aggressive treatment possible however, his immune system was to weak and he was to young to fight off this terrible disease.
The hospital report confirmed that Funky was born with panleukopenia and was sold to us as an already sick kitten. He was temporarily protected until 16 weeks by the milk produced by his mother. At 16 weeks when the temporary protection expired within 24 hours our Funky was gone.
Furry Dream Cattery was aware that our kitten was sick. We were in contact with them often. Irina the owner discouraged us from visiting the vet a number of times saying that "vet's don't know what they are doing". The cattery made no apology to our family on the loss of our kitten and of-course not even an suggestion of a replacement with a healthy kitten. We begged Irina to have all of her cats screened for this virus so that other families would not go through what we are going through right now however Irina refused to screen her cats saying " it is not possible for them to be sick".
Funky was my parents first pet, he was treated like a baby and because of the unethical practices by the owners of Furry Dream, my parents feel as if they lost a child.
Please do not purchase any of your cats from this cattery, they are unethical, inhumane and only care about the $.
Please contact me with any questions, I will be happy to share with you all the medical reports.
