Breeding and the breeding world are things that I have come to overall really dislike since operating this website. Are there still good people doing good things for the breed out there? You bet. But there are probably 3x more people doing the opposite...and it seems like I get the e-mails from people who are not doing right by others or right by the breed.
I have debated whether or not to announce this on the site, but at the end of the day have decided it's important that this is done - I have heard horror stories from several readers about this breeder, and I want the heart break to stop. I want using kittens as a means to get rich to stop. I want a person to have to learn a moral lesson - that after the first sick cat was sold, that's when you reevaluate your breeding situation or stop altogether, not continue without thought. Yes, it is true that a sick cat can end up in a perfect breeder's litters - I understand those things - these are living beings, but when it's a reoccurring theme, and nothing is done to end it by the person creating it, that's when I have a problem.
Nicholas Kho, a previous client of Jessica Perry's, is in the process of filing a class action lawsuit against Jessica Perry and Leah Keeran, associated with ElegantKittens.com, WeLoveRagdolls.com, ElegantRags.com, RagdollKittents.com, LovelyRagdolls.com, LoveRagdolls.com, RagdollKittensCats.com, and other aliases.
Nick has worked to acquire stories about people's experiences with their cattery and is looking to collect more. Nick and team will help collect damages if you join the lawsuit as a victim. Please send them an email to Nick at email@example.com.
Lawsuit against "We Love Ragdolls"
They are getting close to filing the complaint against Jessica and Leah.
In order to move forward efficiently and effectively, they need to get rough draft of affadavits from everyone who adopted kitties from Jessica and Leah (and had problems) as well as an itemized list of financial damages.
They need a list of itemized expenses you incurred as a result of dealing with Jessica and Leah, including receipt proof if you have it. A simple list such as the below will do...
1. Purchase of kitten - $XXXX
2. Transport of kitten - $XXX
3. Initial Medical Exam - $XXX
4. ER Visit #1 - $XXXX
5. Medications - $XXX
And so on, to include all related expenses. Receipts can be attached to the email.
As for the affadavit, this is simply a document that summarizes the facts of your experience with Jessica and Leah including specific dates, details of correspondence, payments made, timeline of your cat's health issues, etc. This will need to be dated, printed, signed, and returned to us either by mail or scanned and returned via email.
While this won't be the official affadavit they submit, as those will need a case number, and include specific formatting, this will serve to help their legal team understand the general complaints of each person and file properly. A simple explanation on how to draft an affadvit can be found here. Their legal team will help with further drafts as needed.
My hope is that Jessica and Leah will be stopped and it will also "scare" people who are currently doing the same and make them stop - and also prevent people from starting the same.
I am grateful for the work Nick is doing - as it is tiring, expensive and arduous. However, it will save many people from years of heart break and financial woes.
