Life of a Breeder
In order for any breed of domestic animals to remain beautiful, true to it's structure, healthy, and without defect, the breeders have be willing to maintain this in all catteries. Selling or trading unfit animals does the animals nor the buyers any good. In turn it will do no good for the people who adore them and want to have them as pets/show/breeder. We should all insist that those who breed live up to these responsibilities. Do not let others destroy any breed, in order to attempt to get ahead at the animal or someone elses exspense.

A typical kitten should cost around $2,000. This would give a breeder enough money for medical care, food, cat litter, grooming supplies, cleaning supplies, maintance of cat scratches, toys, show money, money for registration papers, ect. This would give us, breeders working one job and having more time for cat duties and healthier kittens. It would also cut down on the amount of kitten mills and animals bought and thrown away.
In the U.S.A. right now there are 5 animals to every one man, women, and child. People don't always have a true commitment to their pets. Breeders are blamed for the FACT that owners do not keep and take care of their pets for life. If you don't breed and place kittens responsibly you will ad to throw away kittens and cats and the death of some because owners may not follow through and take care of them. They will leave their responsiblity on someone else's shoulders, with the animal paying the price- life in a shelter- often leading to its death.
