I was surfing the net and came across your complaint and your heartbreaking
story. I have two Persians I purchased from Angelia approximately 3 years ago.
My teacup also had ring worm but we diagnosed it quickly so it was limited to
her ears! She also had numerous respiratory illnesses while she was young/small.
I thought at the time it was because she was so small. After reading your story,
I am not so sure. Our other Persian is not a teacup and has not had any
problems. Both cats are healthy now. If you feel that the cattery does not meet
State standards you could contact the Georgia Department of Agriculture with
your story as Angelia has a State License to run her cattery through that
agency. Hope this helps. Sincerely, XXXX

Hello, I read your web page and wanted to know how tuttie is doing. my heart
broke when i saw your pictures. i also purchased two kittens from angelia in
august of 2006. tessa and bella's parents are devi and chesire. both girls are
doing well but they developed ringworm as tuttie did. i have a fantastic vet who
immediately diagnosed ringworm and started intense treatment. lyme dips,
intraconizole, etc. their ears were bad and they also lost hair. the worst part
was that my three other persians also developed ringworm. unlike you, angelia
did resond to my resquest for help. at first she denied any problems with
ringworm in her cattery but later stated the methods she used to irradicate it
from her cattery. tuttie's eye problem concerns me because bellla had a massive
eye infection that my regular vet could clear up so bella got to go see a
secialist who diagnosed a conjunctive ulcer. that cleared up but i still battle
ringworm. i can tell you from experience that lyme dips are horrible. your heart
break from the sight and the smell it brings. i am so sorry about your
situation. it is a terrible terrible thing that you and your family are dealing
with and especially tuttie's pain and anquish. your are in my thoughts and
prayer and a speedy recovery for tutti also. if you need to contact me please
feel free to call me at XXXXXX or e-mail at XXXX@aol.com

Boy it's a small world - even on the Internet. I am also a victim of Angelia
Shultz. A few years ago I bought two kittens from her. I bought them w/
breeding rights. I actually drove to her home to pick-up the kittens. When I
pulled up in her driveway, there were about 60 to 80 cats in a makeship
cage - sitting right there in the driveway. It's a sight you wouldn't
believe to see - that many cats all piled up on one another.
Against my better judgment, I took my kittens home. At the time, I had about 5
other cats. I didn't want to mix the new kittens with my other cats until I had
them completely vet checked - thank God I made that decision.
examination, just two days after bringing the kittens home, the female was
diagnosed with ringworm and the male was missing a testicle. My vet told me
these kittens were of very poor quality - not breeding quality at all.
Both had upper respiratory infections. Long story short, I sent the kittens back
to Angelia who did refund me "some" of my money - not all of it. Not only am I
out that money, but I also spent hundreds on cleaning supplies to make sure the
ringworm, which spreads so easily, did not go through my home.
and my daughter broke out in ringworm from our immediate contact with the
kittens, so I had medical expenses incurred from that as well. Fortunately, none
of my cats were infected. This happened years ago, and I've not seen ringworm
since, so I obviously killed all the spores.
But it was a nightmare. That
Angelia is quite the talker. Please know that you and I are not the only people
who have been burned by Angelia. There are others who I've talked to myself.
Also, you should know, there is no such thing as a toy or teacup Persian.
Silvers are inherently very small. The smallest of all the Persians, silvers
normally weigh anywhere between 4 to 8 pounds. Anyway, I am sorry for your
suffering and that of little Tutttie. I hope things have a happy ending for you.

3 Years ago I met Angelia Schultz through the internet and like so many others,
was taken in by her friendliness and eagerness to help someone wanting to get
into breeding the Silvers. Well, after a visit to her property, I was just
speechless and out of pity for one of the queens that she had for sale, I took
one of her adult animals home with me. Angelia believed that because the state
of Georgia kept re-issuing her license that the way the animals lived outside
was acceptable and I know that over time, she convinced herself of this. Her
husband didn't like 'cats in the house' and that was a primary reason given for
not bringing them into the basement which could have easily been converted into
a decent cattery. The queens were only brought into her home to give birth, and
that is without a doubt, because Persians can't deliver by themselves without a
high loss of life. So, lucky girls that were due, got to come in out of the
rain. When I arrived home with the adult female, I immediately took her to the
vet where she tested neg. for feline leuk and aids but was treated for a 'yeast'
type growth that was in between her paw pads and my vet asked me if the cat was
kept outdoors. About 2 wks. later the cat (who I kept separated from my others)
started acting like she didn't feel well and her abdomen began swelling, it was
on Memorial Weekend and we took the cat to our vet where she did an ultrasound
and said that the cat had closed Pyrometria and would die if not spayed
immediately. So, we had to pay the usual outrageous holiday surgery fee and I
asked my vet to take photos so I could show them to the breeder that sold her to
me. My vet also included a narrative report (sounds like you are very familiar
with these) about what generally causes 'closed pyo' and our vet said that fecal
matter around the genitals developing into ecoli was a common cause, especially
with unshaven felines. I forwarded all this information to Angelia and her
knee-jerk reaction was to tell me that 'cats respond to their environment' and
it had to be our fault and she wouldn't pay for any of it, or send a kitten in
lieu of the expensive spay which at that time was equal to what she was selling
her kittens for. So, I chalked it up to the fact that I should have known better
and when buying living things 'buyer beware'. I have never told a soul about
this, inspite of Angelia's very vicious response to our request for
reimbursement. I remember her rambling on about what she saw as the 'boomerang'
affect and now as I read your story, I can not help but ironically submit my
story as proof of just that. Her own words. Sincerely, Karma Boomerang (Feel
free to post this)
Angelia Schultz of Trinket Persians

Angelia is now operating as Trinket Persians. If you do a who is for the domain
trinketpersians.com, you will see that its owned by The Witch of Ellijay.
Cleveland, TN is located just 50 miles from Ellijay, GA. If you look at the ads
for Trinket and for Nectar, she even uses the same font on the photos (although,
after reading this, she may changed the font on one of the sites!). No doubt she
moved those poor kittens across the border but not too far away from her home so
that she can continue to sell and NOT have the Georgia Department of Agriculture
breathing down her neck. On her Nectar site, she claims that she is now a feline
placement service. Oh be real Angelia and stop your lying! Do you really want
anyone to believe that after making 2K+ per kitten, youre now going to settle
for a mere commission for brokering a deal. And Trinket: It states in the ad
that they have 22 years experience. Gee, why is it that when I was searching for
a kitten ten months ago, Trinket never, ever came up on a search. Its so
convenient that the Trinket ad was placed (November 13, 2007) just at the time
that you depleted Nectar of its stock. This is all so very interesting...and I
guess you obviously adhere to that old adaga; Theres more than one way to skin
the cat! People, beware! The Witch of Ellijay never went away...she just went
across the border!!!!!
