A fellow breeder in my area recently contacted me in hopes that we could work together. After speaking with her on numerous occassions, I concluded that she was really nice but a little ill-informed. She has a learning disability, but shes thriving well(has 2 kids etc.) I figured that was o.k. because we all had to start somewhere. So, I drove to her house and was horrified to what I saw. First, her house was so terrible it should be unfit for humans. Second, although she had show cats with excellent pedigrees, they were a mess. They had alot of minor problems that could be cleared up easily, and all have had their shots. However, I found this one tiny kitty who was the worst. I took her on the spot but I didn't think she'd make the 1hour drive back to my house! I took her to the vet. She was felv,fip negative thank god, but were not out of the woods yet. She has worms, green puss in her eyes and nose, sever anemia (her blood was like water) and she only weighed 1.4lbs at 3 months old. Her skin is flaking off and her fur is practically gone. He gave me meds for her and she goes back in a couple days for a check up & more tests. My question is what should I do with this lady. I feel she shouldn't get in trouble because she's special ed and dosn't know any better. But she can't do this with the cats any more. Help! Were in Pennsylvania.
