Well, if the breeder knows this is what you're planning, I'm sure they will be happy to provide advice and help to mentor you?

I didn't get her from the breeder. Should I just contact them anyway?

Re: new and confused lol

Where did you get her from? How old is she?
You need to ensure he is fully reg and health tested before even considering breeding her. How does she compare to the breed standard?
I am no expert but I would suggest taking her to some shows, meeting other breeders and seeing what the judges say about her. If she does well and they think she's a good example of the breed, and health tests are clear, then find yourself a mentor. Have a look on the gccf site for shows.
If she doesn't follow the standard of points for her breed then there is no point breeding from her at all.

Perhaps you can find her breeder and have a chat with them?

Yes. The breeder may well not know her cat has been sold on, the person you got her from should have OKd it with the breeder. The breeder will also be best places to give you all the advice you need.

BTW I think they are very attractive cats - I like the Bronze best of all.

I got her from the person who got her from the breeder. She will be two in April. I think she is a good example of the breed, unless I am just biased and I will of course make sure she is fully health tested, just looking for information on what things she needs to be tested for etc.

I'm not sure but someone will be able to advise soon im sure. I would still contact the breeder myself if I was you. She may be able to mentor you which would be fab. Wishing you all the best
