misleading customers with Photoshop

My blue-eyed white Himalayan was dead within 1.5 yrs from liver failure, a genetic condition that made him have white loose stools since he was two or three months old. Yes, heart broken and felt taken by the breeder at first. The above complainer may be speaking of the problem of inbreeding these little guys between each others family members; rather knowingly or not. But the people who are heartless and without compassion for the complainer and the cat itself are the one's who should be ashamed, not the complainer. This is America and without the freedom of speech we would be like communists. I don't believe it is necessary to blame the breeders themselves directly because they may unwittingly be getting studs that are already inbred, etc. Let's keep this reasonable.

misleading customers with Photoshop

Hello Diann aka 1RightToPrivacy.

Hope all is well with you.
Since you have not responded to my attempts to communicate with you, I will respond to your comments on these posts.
Diann did purchase two kittens from me in 2008. She seemed to have been a very nice lady and she was thrilled with her new babies, or at least this is what I assumed since I didn't hear back from her for almost a year and a half.
Diann received an Official Certificate Of Veterinary Inspection, signed and dated by a licensed Veterinarian. This Health Certificate indicates that the white kitten that you purchased on June, 13th of 2008 was examined on 6/11/08 and blood tested for infectious diseases, including a stool sample which indicated that his stools were perfectly normal and parasite free. I have a copy of this Health Inspection Certificate.
You received a healthy, well fed, vigorous kitten with absolutely no health issues two days after this health certificate was issued and I never heard back from you again until a year and a half later to inform me that the cat had died. I am very sorry for your loss regardless of what the cause may have been.
You are now publicly posting and claiming that this cat developed liver failure symptoms due to inbreeding when he was two or three months old. This would have been just a few days after you took possession of him. If this was the case, by law you are required to notify the breeder immediately within 2 business days, with medical documentation for any serious illness and/or any congenital genetic defects. Why would you not contact the breeder immediately if something this serious was wrong with a kitten that you had just purchased? It just doesn't make sense.
Instead, you waited a year and a half after this cat had died and was disposed of, to contact the breeder and make a claim without expert medical documentation.
You are now publicly making libelous defamatory statements that my cats are inbred with genetic defects without providing any proof for your alleged accusations.
I asked you for medical documentation at the time that you contacted me after the cat's death. Your response was that you did not have any medical proof that this condition was a genetic defect, only that this was "in your vet's opinion."
Without medical proof for the cause of any medical condition and/or death, I cannot replace a cat. I still would have replaced the cat, even thou you were not in compliance, if only you had provided me with medical records and proof for your claims.
I stand behind my kittens, but only if the buyer is in compliance and I must have medical documentation with laboratory findings.
Your Quote:
My blue-eyed white Himalayan was dead within 1.5 yrs from liver failure, a genetic condition that made him have white loose stools since he was two or three months old.

Answer:
Where is the medical documentation? Why did you wait 1.5 years and only after the cat had died to contact me?

This is what you have posted this and other posts, quote:
My best guess is that these cats (the white Hemi's) are inbred and get these genetic malformations.
Answer:
Unless you are a "medical expert " in genetics, your "Best guess" has no merit for your allegations without medical proof. Your guesses are not proven medical facts.
Where is professional medical documentation to prove your "guess" theory that this cat was inbred and had genetic malformations?

Quote:
The point is that certain breeders breed cats that are already inbred, rather they know it or not! So my advice? Byer Beware!!
Answer:
Where is your proof that these cats were inbred? There is a thing called a pedigree, that unlike with humans, we have access to information for several generations of the cat's ancestors. So yes, we know if a pedigreed cat is inbred or not and I do not inbreed. The parents to your kitten were not inbred and neither was the kitten. Unlike you, I do have pedigrees to prove my claims.
We also know from many years of experience of working with these bloolines, that either parent cat has never produced a liver or any other life threatening congenital defect, not even when paired up for a repeat breeding of your boy. In lieu of this evidence, we must "assume"unless medical documentation proves different, that this is not a hereditary congenital defect, but an acquired condition due to many other possible factors in his environment.
It is very easy to blame the breeder without valid cause, rather than to believe in the possibility that may be something went wrong and it may not be anyone's fault, but an unfortunate accident.
I asked you for medical documentation, a necropsy and toxicology report for the cause of death and you claimed that you did not have any. Liver disease and failure can be caused by many factors, including but not limited to anorexia due to illness or stress, ingestion of materials that are toxic to cats. vaccines, household chemicals, OTC and Rx drugs, plants, grooming products, foods that contain toxic glutten, pest control chemicals, certain parasite anthelmintics, human and/or non nutritional foods, etc. These can be very toxic to cats and can cause liver and other organ failure. No one can guess and/or assume that the cause for liver failure was a genetic defect without the proper testing and laboratory findings.
Below is your posted comment, quote:
This is America and without the freedom of speech we would be like communists.
Answer:
Yes, we as free Americans have the right to freedom of speech, but freedom of speech is only protected when we speak the truth, reveal our identity with provision of hard facts to prove our allegations, not "guesses" and false accusations.
To hide behind an anonymous screen name with no contact information to make allegations of distorted truth or totally false statements, labels an individuals with no credibility. IP addresses can be traced to the author's true identity. An anonymous screen name will not protect you from a law suit.
False allegations are considered malicious defamatory and libelous statements directed solely with the intentions of defaming and causing character damage to an individual, a business or any other entity, therefore the author is not protected under the right to freedom of speech and it is punishable in the court of law.
Let me make one thing clear.
These are delicate living creatures with demanding needs. Sometimes Mother Nature designates their fate, some times it's human error in many different forms.
We as the breeders of these wonderful creatures have the responsibility to observe and research pedigrees for any faults that may affects the health of any future offspring that we are responsible for creating.
If and when we see a problem, it is our duty as ethical breeders to remove those cats from the pool of genes. Most likely this information will come from adoptive parents, since we do not keep most kittens into adulthood.
Some claims are authentic, some are not. We guarantee the genetic health of our kittens, providing that we get the proper medical documentation should anything go wrong. It is the buyer's responsibility to keep communication with the breeder.
I am always available to speak to anyone that has any questions.
Feel free to contact me at furrbcats@aol.com

Sincerely,

Barbara Lafferty

We love Barbara Laffertys kitties!

We have purchased multiple beautiful healthy kittens from Barbara Lafferty of Furrb cats, also known as Furr-b cats cattery over the past 5 years! They are our very loving furry kids and we have never had any issues with Barbara or her kittens! Barbara is the most honest, reputable and proper breeder you can ask for, especially in comparison to other breeders out there!

Her kittens always come in a prestine coat condition, and loving personalities, as well an official health certificates and vaccinations/ and appropritate testing! I have visited her home as well multiple times, and its always very clean and fresh, and shes very welcoming and sweet, just like her kitties!

I have met a few other of her kitties as well, and they were in excellent health and had gorgeous huge blue eyes and very healthy beautiful coats! Barbara has been working with her amazing lines for many years and she has been breeding champion and grand champions and i feel very blessed and honered to have adopted our furry babies from her!

Her cats look in real life just like they do in their photos! Feel free to reach out to me and i can show you beautiful amazing babies we got from her!

Im sorry about your kitty and i have replied to your other complaint as well, but i seem to be confused about the differences in your stories, you said earlier that your kitty developed loose stools after 3 months of having him and it wasn't property treated by your vet, and later on has affected his liver, but now you said he died of genetic liver condition? i don't understand the differences in your stories?! Our experience has been nothing like yours! im very sorry about your kitty once again!

BARBARA LAFFERTY IS ONE OF THE BEST BREEDERS WITH GORGEOUS HEALTHY KITTENS!!! STOP YOUR LIES!!!

Upon reading your review second time it came to my attention that you're not even a real pet owner! you should be ashamed of yourself, not this wonderful breeder! you're nothing but a jealous breeder competitor, who's writing false allegations and tries to participate in Character DEFAMATION of this innocent breeder!
what does PHOTOSHOP have to do with the nonexistent cats health? for your information those cats are not photoshopped, their photos have been professionally taken. perhaps you should learn the difference! And if you have anything still to say about that, go watch Barbaras kittens videos, because they look as real as can be, and just like on their professionally taken photos!
I have yet to meet a pet owner who calls a breeding male a STUD-youre using breeder terminology, and its very clear who you are! GET A LIFE!!!
