Good for you----I'm not surprised you're furious Lynne. The surprise would be if you weren't. From your description of them, they are not good people--they're at the opposite end of the spectrum from you and the good folks on this list, their only interest in animals being the profit they can make from them. The kneejerk reaction of a jerk is to blame someone else when things go wrong, which is exactly what they've done. I agree with you 100%--people like these should not be allowed near an animal. I don't know how realistic it is, but if you did take legal action it would be gratifying to see run them out of business. Keep us posted when you have time, and good luck.

From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] On Behalf Of Lynne Sent: Monday, March 10, 2008 12:59 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: alittleofftopic I just need to vent. I have become extremely angry with the family who sold us BooBoo. I had been keeping them posted regularly, as they asked me to, on the ordeal he was going through and only in the very beginning did I receive one email from them, which indicated they thought my vet was wrong, I should seek a second opinion, Felv was not contageous and BooBoo had always been happy and healthy. The woman also said some stupid thing about what's wrong with me, that I don't believe in miracles. Well today, a week after Boo left us and the pain has not diminished, I fired off an email expressing my surprise at their total lack of interest in his short life with us. I told her I felt she knew he was ill when she sold him to us and the circumstances around our acquiring him being suspicious and told her I had talked to a lawyer friend about possible legal action. I said I wanted either a certified vet checked Himilayan or my 300 dollars back, which by the way is a pittance compared to the vet bills. I told her I would not let this matter die, like BooBoo had to. I would have spent any amount in the world to keep him alive but it wasn't meant to be. There has to be some kind of justice here. People like this should not be allowed to own any kind of pet and should need to suffer for their inhumanity.
