There are so many breeders around, even though the shelters are filled with kitties that need a loving home. But if we’re talking about breeders, there are two different types of breeders. The good ones, and the bad ones. Here’s a little guideline to help you out.
- By paying more, you can get a pedigree with the cat.
- You will get your kitten on the most strange places. (think: parking lot).
- Kittens end up scared of people and not socialized.
- You have a choice out of many breeds and cats.
- The breeder doesn’t ask about you and your backgrounds with cats or other information.
- There are no legitimate papers about their parents and tests.
- You can get the kitten when it’s younger than 12 weeks.
- You won’t see the mother.
- Kittens are not or only for a part vaccinated.
- Not a member of a specified breeders-club. (like maine coons breeders are often a member of the Maine Coon club for example).
- There will be a pedigree with the cat, for no extra costs.
- You can go and visit the breeder to pick up the kitten.
