Date: 12/27/04 Melanie Lowry of Lollimops Cattery AKA "Annie" of Sugar Kisses Himalayan Cattery FACTS 1: "My husband in good faith wanted to purchase me a kitty for xmas. He found lollimops and called Melanie. Melanie said she has a boy flame point for $500.00 but needed a $100.00 deposit upfront thru Paypal. My husband wanted to get me a cat, did the $100.00 deposit with OUT seeing the cat first. After talking to other breeder, he was advised NOT to purchase kitties from this breeder. On the same day my husband call Melanie to ask for the deposit back because he changed his mind. Melanie said "NO REFUNDS". She got very rude and hung up on my husband. This transaction all took place within a 8 hour period. I have read all the complaints about this breeder and I am so shocked she still is in business. I only want what is fair. I have no deposit and no kitty. Please help an honest buyer. Gratefully, Bill and Rene Carr" FACTS 2: "Thank you so much for your response. I am so devastated about this women and the horrible things I have read about her and her partner. I recently purchased a baby boy from a local man in Anaheim, Ca who was wonderful. I went to his house saw the mother and father of my baby and I was very pleased with the care of the cats. Melanie would not let my husband come to her house, she wanted to meet half way. First RED sign. Second she wanted a $100 deposit immediately before seeing the cat or the condition of the cat. This is bad business and this women needs to be shut down. I have contacted the BBB in San Diego, the CFA and your organization. I hope that something comes out of this good. My husband is also disputing PayPal.
Melanie was very hostile and rude with my husband and even hung up on him. I had my mother contact Ms. Lowery because she is a member of the CFA and I thought they could work something out. Melanie hung up on my mother as well. Please stop this women. Gratefully, Rene Carr FACTS 3: Melanie wanted to meet in Temecula and for him to call her that same day. They never had a set place to meet,she said she was dropping off some cats in Temecula and they would meet somewhere. I am so disappointed with this whole transaction, it just keeps getting worse." FACTS 4: FYI Melanie is already writing letters to the CFA, Better Business Bureau and PayPal and she is disputing all our claims we received a copy of her letter to the better Business Bureau. I hope what you are doing really stops her from taking advantage of good people. What we did was out of good intension to purchase a kitty but because of the things that were said caused us to cancel the transaction. The other breeder said that all her kitties are sick and have died and for us to get our money back, She even said that Melanie would not refund the deposit and that she is really desparate for money. Thanks again FACTS 5: She never allowed my husband to come to her home. she would only meet him 1/2 way. I don't even now if this is her correct address...Thanks again the Carrs
Melanie Lowry continues to ignore this complaint.
