Cat Buyer Guide General Discussion / Welcome to CBG
« Last post by Cat Buyer Guide on August 06, 2012, 09:20:22 PM »
I want to let everyone know that we can use this for a full range of discussion topics. We can share whatever we want to on here. The only requirements are kindness and respectfulness. There can be no attacks of others catteries or programs. This entire Cat Buyer Guide is built to educate the buyer. So, if we want to get people not to patronize a particular cattery then we educate people on the questions to ask, share stories of what happend, how it transpired and a what was learned. But we do not have to identify any cattery to accomplish that.

General Health and Testing / There are a lot of questions you should ask
« Last post by Cat Buyer Guide on August 05, 2012, 07:46:17 PM »
If you have never purchased a pedigreed cat before, or even if you have, it is important for you to ask a lot of questions so you have a complete understanding of the process and what is expected of you and the breeder. You should understand your rights, your responsibilities and the breeder's rights and responsibilities. There are many situations where misunderstandings occur and they are almost always due to miscommunications. In many cases you will deal with good people, but there are far more out there that are not ethical and reputable. Health and testing are very critical issues for the buyer to have a good understanding of prior to a purchase decision.

The best method of finding a breeder of a pedigreed cat is to go to a cat show. If you can't find a cat show that is convenient for you to attend, or if you cannot locate a breeder of your chosen breed at a local show, you can phone or e-mail the various cat registry organizations and ask them for a list of breeders working with a given breed, or you can use Breed groups such as (for Bengals) The International Bengal Cat Association (TIBCS) .http://www.tibcs.com

When you purchase a cat from a reputable breeder who is active in the showing community, you should get a cat from a line whose ancestors were judged as to how well they met the standards of the breed, and which has been part of a program designed to breed healthy and robust examples of the breed in question.

Buying a kitten is an important and long term commitment so you want to choose a breeder that has the best interests of the cat, their breed and you in mind.

Anyone can put two cats together and can call themselves a breeder but that doesn’t make them reputable or responsible.
