    I have had cats all my life and at the moment have 1 tortie cat, a ginger & white tabby and recently bought a British Shorthair.

    I am by no means a professional but have been interested in cat behaviour for a long time now and have read many books as well as using the net for information.

    I am at the moment facinated with the British Shorthair breed and after wanting one all my life have finally got one!! I am also considering the possibilty of breeding them so would also require advice about that too!

    It is something I have been thinking about, only thing is I think I would be tempted to keep all the kitties myself!

    Guess I'm a little too soft for breeding ... especially as you have to keep them until they are 13 weeks, by then I would be totally in love with all of them!

    I've done cat breeding they were only moggies. The first litter was three that took my total up to six cats. Then through a change of circumstances I had to leave four behind. Then I brought two more kittens once I was settled again. I bred from one she had one kitten that was five cats again, then I moved took on a stray queen who had three kittens. That was hard I sold TWO and the other went next door even then I cried. Breeding is the easy part but letting go is really hard. I've gained another moggie she is semi long haired and very beautiful so here we go again but this time it might be easier! I hope!
