    My sphynx kitten was delivered with some health problems

    Hello! I've purchased a little sphynx kitten from a very good cattery, run by very responsible owners. However, within the 3 months the kitten has been with me I've found out that it has giardiasis, coronavirus and likely herpesvirus/calicivirus. He has nothing but some sneezing and creamy...
