    @Oliyks clearly you've thought carefully about it and considered matings for kittens with litter COIs, and you're doing it to further the breed I think it's a perfectly good plan :)

    The most important thing to remember with inbreeding / line breeding is that yes, you’re locking in good traits (and tbh, the few breeders I know with very consistent “look” to their cats, achieved it through line breeding), but you’re also locking in faults, and that can be difficult if not impossible to come back from. That’s why, IMO, only very experienced breeders should ever attempt it. Good luck whatever you decide :)
