Trouble with breeder (Brenda Bevan) Sphynx Cattery

I bought an 11 month old female sphynx from Brenda Bevan( Bald and Purri cattery), who said she had "rubbing" spots on her back from rubbing against furniture, and after spay they would go away. Well, they did not!

The spots turned into what the vet called "raised ulcerative lesions" they would ooze and bleed. The vet said it was probably a congenital auto immune disease, but Brenda blamed vaccines! The vet said no! Treatment and tests would cost me thousands, and I needed the previous 11 months of vet history from Brenda while she had her.

( I only had her a month!) I asked multiple times for her vets info. She refused and then told me if I returned the cat to her property or contacted her again she was going to phone the authorities!! Buyers please BEWARE of Brenda Bevan. Read her contract with a fine tooth comb!!

At one point she told me to bring back the cat and she would refund my money... Then changed her mind! I had to surrender the cat today to the animal shelter where they said she would likely be put to sleep. If Brenda didn't refuse to give me the vet records, my vet may have been able to collaborate with Brenda's vet to come to a more costly solution.

Why did she not want me to see or contact her vet?, WHO KNOWS! Buyers please don't be as naïve as me!! I also told my vet hospital to only release my cats info. to another vet office.

Brenda called and somehow got them to send vet records to her home! Unbelievable! Brenda, if you are reading this, please tell us ALL why you refused to give me the contact info.

for the vet that saw this cat the first 11 months of it's life while you had it? If this cat wasn't sick, why hide the information!

Thanks for posting, you saved me thousands of dollars of heartache! Can't believe any reputable breeder would reply this way instead of trying to make things right!


For anyone who wants the truth, please see my website I have posted about this disgusting action of Erin Narutowicz of Towson, Maryland. I have nothing to hide!

Erin is a terrible pet owner, so all you dog and cat breeders, beware!!!!She refused ANY TREATMENT and testing for this cat, so it was never diagnosed before she dumped it at the Baltimore City shelter, Knowing they would put her down due to over crowding!

I have all text messages, and photos. I'll be glad to share them!
