I am writing to alert people who are looking to adopt a kitten from SNOWY HOLLOW SIBERIANS to be aware of the potential issues. I wish I had read the previously posted complaint on this site before committing serious dollars to adopting a kitten from this breeder, because our experience has been quite similar, only maybe worse. [Note: We would have adopted a rescue kitten, but my granddaughter and I are allergic to cats, and this “hypo-allergenic” breed does not cause an allergic reaction in either of us.] Our kitten, “Sky”, arrived with virulent diarrhea. The breeder told me it probably was an adjustment issue with her new environment. After days of changing litter, box locations, etc., I took Sky, who seemed to be in considerable pain, to the vet. Lab tests showed the highest level of Giardia, contracted before she arrived in our pet-free home. I sent the lab report to the breeder, so she would know that her many other cats and kittens might also be infected. I received no response. After 6 weeks on antiobiotics and more than $1000 in vet expenses, the Giardia blessedly cleared. By that time, however, Sky still only weighed 2.5#, slightly more than when we received her. Her immune system was weakened and a virus took hold. Her fever reached 105.5 degrees. The vet prescribed antibiotics, in hopes that it was a bacterial infection. She is at the vet”s several times a week for weigh-ins and fluids. We have invested yet another $1000+ in this precious little, sick kitten. With no improvement, the vet believes Sky has Coronavirus, and likely FIP, which is a fatal, highly contagious feline disease that was, most certainly, contracted at the breeder”s. At 5 months of age, Sky still weighs only 2.5#… a scrawny little fur ball who no longer eats or plays. I am feeding her pureed food and water by syringe many times each day to try to help her gain strength. When I realized that we had adopted a sick kitten, I wrote a review on Snowy Hollow”s FB page. Up until that point, the breeder had expressed little interest in Sky”s condition, but the review clearly got her attention: She told me it would ruin her business and take food off her table for her and her children. She also recommended a stronger antibiotic that my vet and research stated would have been too strong and probably would have killed Sky. The breeder has since removed my review from her FB page. Because it no longer is there to alert prospective buyers, I am posting here for people to be aware that the other review on this site is not the only bad experience.
