PRECIOUS POMS N PERSIANS REVIEW

KITTEN DIED 2 months after purchase
I purchased a male Persian kitten for my mother in August of 2021 that unexpectedly died two months later in October despite receiving all recommended vaccinations and scheduled treatments. He passed away in front of my mother, who witnessed him screech out and then collapse. He was completely asymptomatic before his death and was so incredibly playful, affectionate and energetic.
It appears that Persian kittens have the highest rate of unexplained death amongst cats because of a hereditary defect in the heart muscle. We reached out to the breeders regarding his unexpected passing – who extended their condolences but had nothing else to say. How does a healthy kitten pass away two months later without cause?
We were hoping to purchase another kitten after winter and expressed this to the breeders but hoped to receive some type of discount towards the purchase of a new kitten given the circumstances. The breeder has produced additional kittens but did NOT reach out to us despite knowing that I wanted to find my mother another kitten to help fill the void that the former kitten left after he died.
Would not recommend. Don’t expect compassion, sincerity, or any type of support from these breeders.
