    Hi i am a new breeder of BSH. I have two queens a cream self and lilac tortie colourpoint. They are being mated with a choc self BSH, All registered and correct, however I saw on a breeders website something about selling her colourpoint stud as the GCCf have changed the rules on breeding colourpoints and selfs? Could anyone shed any light on this?

    Thanks ;)

    I tried to help but the registration policies are currently being amended and are not available at the moment. I can't see anything on February's agenda that suggests any change in the British registration policies though. The latest version I can find is here:

    http://www.colourpointedbritish.co.uk/bshregpol.pdf

    Perhaps the breeder's website hasn't been updated for some time?

    According to the registration policy above, any self that has a silver or colourpoint parent goes either on the reference register (therefore unshowable) or, on the breeder's request, on the supplementary register but only as non-active. That would mean that a colourpoint stud would be no use to a breeder of selfs and I suspect that is what is behind her selling on her stud. Since the great majority of kittens are sold as pets, it need not concern you too much unless you were intending to keep a kitten from your colourpoint girl.

    Does that help?

    Liz
