    Hi; would a stud service work with female non-purebred cat? + other breeding questions

    yes Lutece. she's a very smart cat and through 3 or 4 diff. apptms -- ea. much delayed, like, by a few months - due to covid -- she kept evading us/hiding . we cldn't get her into carrier. We finally did. now she is looking at me accusingly and I feel terrible. however, we do have one of her...

    Hi; would a stud service work with female non-purebred cat? + other breeding questions

    Thanks, Willowy, Interesting AlleyCat study. My cat is negative for Fel Aids.Leukemia. She's had rabies, Distemper, combo. So of course I wouldn't want her to give any diseases to a male; what else is there for which I'd need to test her, and for which would need to ensure that male had been...

    Hi; would a stud service work with female non-purebred cat? + other breeding questions

    One interesting note. A breeder w whom I spoke indicated that sometimes breeders want to continue one particular cool trait. W/my cat, she doesn't have white fur - her lighter fur is the color of coffee ice cream or the same color as pictures of Italian lattes. So even though she isn't a...

    Hi; would a stud service work with female non-purebred cat? + other breeding questions

    Thank you, Lutece in particular. I applaud breeding to ensure that the particular breed doesn't die out. We adopted this rescue- - who appeared to have fleas, was underweight, and living in our yard. The cat -- or kittens/father may be part Siberian/MC according to what breeders have indicated...

    Hi; would a stud service work with female non-purebred cat? + other breeding questions

    Thanks Goldycat. So I'm not sure why a genetic test would re required of my cat by a stud's owner, if I'm just giving the kittens away to my friends.Are there other health tests beyond those I just listed that would be required? . And I guess the next ? is whether there's a way to search for...

    Hi; would a stud service work with female non-purebred cat? + other breeding questions

    Thank you everyone. Just to let you know, 2 of her kittens went to a remarkable home (people in my church) where they have a 21-year old cat who is blind. They adore the cats. Another went to a friend of a pet lover fanatic. And, good point about this not being prime kitten season. But even 6...

    Hi; would a stud service work with female non-purebred cat? + other breeding questions

    Thank you Norachan. I did post in the cat breeder's forum so that I could get some responses from people who breed cats. I believe that this is supposed to be o.k. That is, the forum is for people who don't have a problem with people breeding cats.I think there is a note to that effect. Not...

    Hi; would a stud service work with female non-purebred cat? + other breeding questions

    Hi; I have a beautiful rescue cat, non-purebred. She had a litter and all kittens went to good homes and were spayed/neutered. If I wanted her to have another litter before spaying - just bc she's so cool and pretty -- I would give kittens to good homes -- have been told I'd need a stud as I...

    Is My Cat Eating Enough Fiber?

    I am on making this thread because my cat is eating weird little fibers, although she eats primarily dry food which is the best food available. What amt of fiber should it have? thx

    Kitty Eating/Pulling Up Carpet

    This thread is so great. I started reading bc my cat has just been trying to chew on fibers on the couch - just started - then threw up several hours later. She has thrown up before and I've seen her try to chew on my hair but not on the couch fibers. I don't think her breath is bad. She did...

    Coping with a female cat in heat

    yes, I was admiring those green eyes also. my mom cat has green eyes and none of the kittens got them.

    Hi! If my cat has another litter, will existing 2 kittens in family (then would be about 7 mos.) attack new kittens?

    Also, I would love for her to be able to go outside in a catio (I bought her a harness for walks but then she got pregnant so I haven't used it). The sooner she gets out of the heat the sooner I can try to get her outside safely. I also want to spare her any additional discomfort from being in...

    Hi! If my cat has another litter, will existing 2 kittens in family (then would be about 7 mos.) attack new kittens?

    She is just a gorgeous cat; and, yes, then the heat thing would stop. After the next birthing cycle I would be able to make an advance spay apptmt bc covid wouldn't have just begun.

    Hi! If my cat has another litter, will existing 2 kittens in family (then would be about 7 mos.) attack new kittens?

    ok, so when i made the apptmt it was over a mo. now it's 2.5 weeks. but i really don't think i can last that long. Our cat must have very very good hormones. I am not getting much sleep at all. Everything else is going by the wayside. Of course we are keeping her indoors, and I am not even sure...
