Agile Somalis Cattery SomaliCats@shaw.ca, http://www.AgileSomalis.com,Agile Somalis Cattery Helen Warn of Agile Somalis cattery is quite an exclusive, nasty piece of work - she's in it for the money - she's not in it for the breed or for the well-being of the animals she sells. Avoid her. Vancouver, BC, Canada BC
Helen Warn of Agile Somalis is a cat breeder who is in it for the money and for her ego. I consulted her about buying and adopting a Somali kitten or pair of kittens. Helen couldn't have been sweeter when I was considering buying from her and having kittens shipped from the northwest to the northeast. I gave the matter some thought and realized I wasn't comfortable having kittens shipped cross country. She referred me to an east coast breeder, Karen Vance of cedarwood cattery and nightmagic cattery. Working with Ms. Vance was a little odd, but everything was going fine until I expressed an interest in obtaining breeding rights. From that point forward, Helen Warn and the east-coast breeder she referred me to, Karen Vance, treated me with utter CONTEMPT.
Please be assured that I am not exaggerating when I write the word CONTEMPT.
In particular, Helen Warn did her best to blacklist me. I am grateful to the other breeders I found who know what a shady character Helen Warn is, and who were willing to work with me and mentor me.
Last weekend I attended a cat show in Connecticut, and all of the breeders there expressed their concern about the waning numbers of people interested in becoming breeders. In response, I told everyone at that show about the contemptuous treatment I received from Helen Warn of Agile Somalis Cattery (http://www.AgileSomalis.com) and her east coast flunkie, Karen Vance of cedarwood cattery (http://www.cedarwoodcattery.com/about.html) and nightmagic cattery (http://nightmagiccattery.com/contact.html). The breeders I met at last week's show all agreed that those who bring this kind of attitude, exclusion, and bad politics to the game are ultimately hurting the cats and the breeds, and they all said there is no place in cat fanciers for thugs like Ms. Karen Vance and Ms. Helen Warn.
Somalis and Abyssinians are wonderful cats, but people like Helen Warn and Karen Vance are doing a great job of making these breeds extinct. If you are interested in having one of these as your pet, please be ready to choose your breeder carefully. A breeder should promote his/her breed in an inclusive way, and they should appreciate those who take interest in the breed. They should not come off as exclusive or make you feel uncomfortable for being interested in a breed. If you are interested in becoming a breeder of somali and abyssinian cats, you should not be treated with the contempt that Helen Warn and Karen Vance showed me. There are many abyssinian and somali breeders out there who will treat you with professionalism and respect. Please do not subject yourself to the contempt that Helen Warn and Karen Vance showed me. They are doing harm to these two wonderful breeds of cats.
