    That's true---you do have the constant flow of rescues. It must be so heartbreaking, yet somehow joyful at least to see their cute little selves---does that make sense? I would have such a hard time doing what you do.

    I do a small amount of rescue but these are not rescues. They're supposed to be Tiffanies but these coat lengths are really excessive and the faces are really persian-like which doesn't make a great deal of sense because although my boy has a lot of persian in him, Mum is really quite long faced and does not have a huge amount of coat. I can see me DNA testing before I'm through with this lot, but then I did that last year, spent hundreds of pounds on it to make sure of the parentage because I couldn't quite believe my eyes, and all but one of the ten kittens I tested was exactly what I thought it was. It's called paranoia :rolleyes:

    I beg to differ. It's more likely irresponsible breeding.

    If you have to DNA test at all something is wrong somewhere. If you have even consider it for a second time you clearly never learnt from the first time.

    With this and your other 'outcross' (or is that a not particularly cleverly disguised oops litter?) litter you're really flagging up just how crazy your ethics appear to be!

    Do you still let your entire queens roam the streets?

    Here you go again. I am working on an outcross programme, the outcrosses are registered. I have acquired cats specifically for this purpose, I have been stating my intention and my reasons for doing this for the last couple of years. The fact that your breed is big enough that you don't have genetic problems is great, unfortunately my breed does and since I am not a prize hypocrite (whatever else you might think of me) I am actually doing something about it. It may be no more than a gesture but it is costing me money (Burmese fetch rather more than outcrosses!) and no doubt losing me friends, but it is my decision and my conscience, all the kittens are being raised in exactly the same way as if they were full Burmese, and frankly I am not all that concerned if you don't approve.

    Do you ever have anything nice to say to anyone on here??? Every thread i've read regarding breeding/kittens, you seem to have a problem with something the OP has done!!! :(

    Your right I do have a problem with a lot of threads posted about accidental litters, or even those posted by people claiming to be breeders with many years experience passing off their ethics as good ... when they are far from it.

    It's called having a conscience and speaking out for the animals with no voice. If that make me a bad person ... well that's a cross I will have to bare I suppose.

    I'm sorry if that sounds snappy, it's not meant to be. But I am getting fed up of people not looking into why I say what I do before trying to chastise me for speaking out! There's no smoke without fire as they say!

    I just went and googled "Tiffanies" as I think I've only heard of them in passing before. I see what you mean--they have longer coats than any of the cats I saw online. They're quite lovely. And my impression, just from my quick google, is that a Tiffany or Chantilly isn't a distinct official breed, but a variant of the British Longhair?

    Ah no, wrong tiffany. That's one of the joys of it, Tiffany in the US means something different. Ours are effectively longhaired Burmillas (though they can be different colours). They originated from a Burmese / Chinchilla cross.

    Ah, I see. It's all very complicated, and doesn't it just circle back on this whole "purity of the line" issue in the other thread. If a breed standard is one thing in one country, and something else in another, then who is to say what is furthering the line or the breed in any definitive sense?

    Whatever the case, they are adorable--i don't think I've seen a cuter set of kittens---prettier, maybe, but not cuter in their scruffy good looks. I'm curious to see how they look when they get older.
