How Lollimops Hides Her Kittens

Lollimops Cattery registered CFA cattery # 138835

Ms Lowry is still selling kittens in the southern California area especially the San Diego area and possibly across the USA again.

In Collusion* with her cattery pals

Since Lollimops is no longer using her website she is now using her cattery pals in southern California to sell her kittens. It is possibly all the breeders she sold to listed here: Other breeders is selling her kittens for her.

Since Ms Lowry is still registering her kittens her cattery # would be on the blue slip she gives the buyers. Her registerd cattery # from CFA is 138835. If you buy a kitten and see this # I would say you purchased from Ms Melanie Lowry of the Lollimops cattery. Her name on the blue slips would be
M Lowry cattery # 138835

Lollimops is falsifying kittens to make this appear as if these kittens for sale, are from her 2 past buyers websites. When in reality its Lollimops kittens for sale that fill these pages. This is how Ms Lowry decieves her potential buyers. Ms Lowry speciality is *deceit. Lollimops has also changed the backgrounds of the photos to also attempt to decieve potential buyers further.

Warning from her past buyer

*Collusion means secret agreement or cooperation especially for an illegal or deceitful purpose.
*Deceit means mislead,cause to believe what is false,contrivance, entrap,underhanded practices,double-dealing.

Lollimops has been doing this since 2005 hiding her kittens for sale in her pals website to deceive buyers not to think they are Lollimops kittens. Must Read

PAST buyer very dis-satisfied sharing about buying from LOLLIMOPS & CATINALLITY Catteries

My Experience
In 2002 and 2003 I received 3 kitties total:
1. One with FIP that died
2. one that tested positive for FeLV,
3. and the third kitten was sick with URI and ringworm
but is currently healthy and happy :)

Hello... I'd love to check out your site. I have had bad experiences with Melanie Lowry and as an inexperienced breeder, I wasn't sure how to handle it or her, so after many emails and phone calls with her, I finally let it go.... Today I thought I'd Google her name to see if I could find anyone who fallen to her as well. Unfortunately, I wasn't at all surprised to find more HORRIFIC stories similar to mine. I'm sure there are more out there...

I have not filed any complaints against her and there really isn't anything I would accept as a compromise from Melanie at this point in time... but I would like to help the INNOCENT by letting them know that they should ABSOLUTELY avoid Melanie like the PLAGUE.

My children had a very difficult time and struggled after I received 2 sick kittens from her, 1 which died from FIP and the other which tested positive for FELV ... thank goodness I knew to isolate from my other cats until tested or it could have been much worse...

It looks as if Melanie is an EVIL EVIL person who cares only about money and nothing about her cats or the people/families that she's affected.

I see that she has moved from the house on the hill- I was only allowed to step foot in her living room, but have a feeling that behind her bedroom door there were far more than the 15 cats she allowed me to see in her living room and caged in her tiny kitchen....I have moved on... but, I would be willing to share my experience on your site. Thank you, Kristi Kortmeyer, Phoenix, Arizona

Melanie Lowry is a storyteller who is desperately trying to salvage her reputation, which has been DEVASTATED by her eagerness to sell unhealthy kittens to innocent people. Melanie's response is a bunch of falsehoods. If all of Melanie's so called "Facts" were true, then I would've been quite a happy customer, right?! In fact, if her "Facts" were true, wouldn't I be supporting her instead of this website? I have nothing to gain by discrediting Melanie. I am embarrassed for her.

She obviously has a problem with reality- she now has 7 separate instances where former customers have been swindled and/or deceived by her. Could it be a coincidence that we have similar complaints? Doubtfull.And I'm quite certain there are many more customer's with unfortunate stories who haven't yet discovered the CACB.INFO website.

In sharing my experience I only hope that:
a). others will come forward and
b). that my story can save at least ONE person from being her next prey.
Following this email I will not respond, refute, or entertain ANY of Melanie's additional STORIES. I've told the truth as it was. Shame on you, Melanie!

There are MANY notable, reputable breeders who truly CARE about the health and future of their cats and Melanie Lowry is not one of them. I wish CBC.INFO the best of luck in your efforts to stop corrupt breeders from taking advantage of the trusting public and from medically neglecting precious kittens! You ladies are brave and I wish you much success!"
