This person is a breeder who sold me a retired breeding cat. I was sent pictures from years ago and whenever I asked for a new picture I was told that they were too busy and would send me one later. I did get one dimly-lit picture the day I was supposed to pick my cat up but I assumed the cat looked sickly because of the dim lighting and grainy picture. When I showed up, it was clear that the cat was in terrible condition. Her nose was ulcerated, she smelled of infection, the top of her head was matted but oddly enough she had been shaved so I could see her ribs, spine, and hip bones. She had a GIANT lump at her spay incision site and it was red and hot. I thought I'd bring her to the vet and have to put her down, to be honest. The contract states that the purchaser viewed the cat and agreed that she's in good health. It also says that the breeder is not financially responsible for any sickness. I signed because I wanted to get the cat out of there. When we took her to the vet she was diagnosed with pretty bad calicivirus, an infection at the spay site which actually started leaking white liquid the night we got her, and she was only 5lbs. We took her home with antibiotics and probiotics. Then, she started having chronic diarrhea. We had to have tons and tons of tests done. Turned out to be IBD which we treat with B12 weekly injections for life, raw diet, and probiotics. The vet said it had probably been going on for a long time. Now she's gained 3 lbs, and looks and acts like a normal cat. But, her gums are always sore and red. My vet thinks it might be stomatitis and so we are seeing the specialist in April to figure out if it is stomatitis and to do FME (full mouth extraction) to the tune of almost $4,000 if it is stomatitis.
