OH and I have recently been discussing breeding pedigree cats. It's certainly not something we'd even consider for a good few years yet, closer to semi retirement - if at all! However, OH made the point - how often would you say no to prospective owners. He said he'd probably say no to most people if they didn't come up to standard and admits we'd probably end up keeping all the kittens! :lol: So I just wondered how often do you say no to owners and at what stage? We've only dealt with two breeders and in both cases had long phone conversations before we went to meet them and then spent about 2 hours each time talking to them and meeting their cats. We'd have been devastated if either of them didn't think we were suitable owners! And I imagine it's even harder once the potential owner has met the kittens! Reading the stories about how tough it can be for some to get a rescue cat - I just wondered how pedigree breeders compared. Feel free to move this post into Cat Chat if you think it's more suited there!
