|I post this complaint here in order to express my disgust with Kathy Hunter of Sierra Gold Bengals. I had purchased two Bengals from her on separate occasions. Both arrived sick, one with a runny eye and a cold; the other with diarrhea. Both have heart mummers. In addition, Kathy never sent me their registration numbers. Further more, I had purchased them as breeders (they were listed as such), but then Kathy informed me that I do not have breeding rights. And lastly, after I had purchased and received one kitten, she switched the cat I thought I had originally purchased with another one. It was not until I inquired with her re his looking different than in the original photo, that she admitted to doing so. As you can imagine, the health problems I encountered with these cats ran my vet bill up by several hundred dollars. Kathy would not reimburse me for it, after her having sold me sick cats. Watch out for this women, people. She is wolf in sheeps' clothing, who preys on honest hardworking individuals like me. Kathy should not enjoy the privilege of breeding these wonderful animals; she is what gives breeders the bad reputation that they have.|
Kathy is playing the victim with regard to her suspension from TIBCS. It is well known that she had been stealing other breeders' Web site domains, which led to her suspension. When I confronted her re: her unethical behavior, and the sick cats I purchased from her, she attacked me verbally, telling to take care of my cats (shouldn't she take care of her cats?) And that she switched the cat I had purchased without telling me until after I had received him. Interestingly, the cat constantly whines and cries, and is skitish- runs away from me (obviously, he had been abused). Fortunately, I love him and don't mind the whining. When I told my vet what she did, he was stunned. Why she with held their registration numbers and denied me breeding rights, I have no idea- I imagine it serves her well. I would have reported her to TICA, in effort to have her business shut down, but fell ill for several months. In hind site, I should have done the math. Kathy's husband, George, is an out of work real estate agent. They have a large house to care for and Kathy is obviously under financial pressure to pay for all the bills. By the way, these pets are assistance animals, suggested by two doctors of mine, to help alleviate a Major Depressive disorder. And Kathy knew that. Can you imagine what I went through?
|I recently purchased a bengal kitten from Kathy Hunter, earlier this year 2011. |
Before doing so I expressed my concerns about all the complaints about her business found here and on other places in the internet.
She reassured me time and time again that these complaints were false and made by other jealous breeders.
Well the the kitten finally arrived- with tape worms and diarreah. The kitten was also very dehydrated upon arrival. When I took the cat to the vet, she detected a significant hear murmur. So I called Kathy to tell her of this and she immediatly became very defensive. She said that the contract states that she is not responsible for vet bills. Other calls I made to Kathy were not returned to me.
So it turns out that the complaints I read here and on other web sites turned out to be true.
Please be careful of her. I spent a lot of money for a sick kitten. She was my best friend until the cat was delievered to me. Then everything changed.
|Okay I just wanted to let everyone know there is a scam going right now (ad posted in altus, ok) for adoption on bengal kittens. But then when I contacted her she said she had moved to alaska for work. Everything seemed okay until they asked me to wire (western union) money to cameroon. (I had already read that this place was known for scams). Just so you know "her" name was Marry Dian and email [email protected]. Its all bogus so dont be taken! They even sent a fairly believable confirmation email from the delivery company "Alaska Pets Delivery-alaska pets and livestock" but there was no link, no website, no phone number...and they even went far enough to say "dont tell western union you are sending money to a company for a kitten or they will charge you higher fees, just tell them it is to a person for personal reasons" Give me a break! SCAM, SCAM, SCAM!!!|
