    How many different breeds do we have here?

    Wondering how many different breeds we have here, and by breed I do mean a cat purchased from a breeder. My cats are all Ocicats, a few show neuters that got me started in the breed and the rest breeding cats. Their colours are tawnys, chocolates, chocolate silvers, black silver and blue.
