    I hope I’m in the right section. I finally took the plunge and decided to post a ‘hello’ on this site :)
    I’m relatively new to breeding (and am very excited but also cautiously nervous too!). I have a lovely mentor/breeder but love this site for all the invaluable information and tips.

    I have 3 girls (2 retired queens originally from my lovely mentor) and a 7 month old - they’re all the traditional blue color, I’m in NZ registered with NZCF.

    This is my first year breeding. I have amazing support from my breeder/mentor but I’m still really anxious. There are so many things that can go wrong and I’m the worlds biggest worry wart. My mentor thinks I over think things!! Lol
    Breeding is not for the faint hearted. My mentor will be providing the stud service for my girl.

    I’m one of those people that look up everything on google, stress and think there might be something wrong with my babies. My mentor thinks I worry too much, my husband thinks I’m nuts and my vet loves me because he’ll be buying himself a nice sports cat with all the money I’m giving him!!!!

    Never a truer word spoken about breeding. Hope all goes well for you.

    On the top right hand side there’s a icon that says post new thread (I think) that’s how you post or alternatively you can just post in this thread.

    what type of cat are you breeding? Do have a mentor to help you?

    @Fendi has told you how to post a question, I feel it's better if each question has it's own thread.

    All agog! What breed? What country? What registry? Enquiring minds want to know!
