Sick Kitten, please help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I don't know if this is the right forum to post this in, but I don't know where else to start. I recently posted the the Health Board about my 9 month old Siamese kitten who has Irritable Bowel (among other things). My question to this board, is what can I do about breeders that sell sick kittens and claim no responsibility? My little guy has been sick since I got him 9 months ago. I've spent between $3,000 - $4,000 trying to make him well and now the vet says there might be a possibility that I have to make a decision soon. I can't even begin to explain how heartbroken I am over this situation. I have called the Attorney General's office and will file a complaint, but that doesn't really help. I want to make sure that no one else would have to go through this torture like I have. I don't know what to do next and would really appreciate any help or suggestions! Thank you in advance.

About compensation from the breeder, I would say that there is probably little to do unless you have a signed a contract with the breeder, and maybe even nothing depending on the language of the contract.

Truely responsible breeders are few and far between, which is truely a shame, as it gives breeding a bad name.

I'm very sorry to hear about your sick kitty. Are you aware of the FelineIBD group on Yahoo? They have a lot of great information and are very caring and compassionate people.

Purrayerz for you kitty!

I'm so sorry to hear about your kitty. Have you tried talking to the breeder? I have found that most breeders do care about their "babies". If you signed a contract, read it over well and see what responsibilities the breeder gives for the health. Check for a health guarantee, most breeders offer this.

Good luck. I hope all turn out well for you and your kitty.

This is becoming more and more prevalent with IBS in cats as being the cause. So thought maybe I should give you a head's up? Good luck

Clumping Litter-Blessing or Curse?

I've read a lot of articles which warn that clumping litters are unsafe for kittens. I've been using Swheat Scoop with Tiri and the fosters and so far no one is having any problems.
