Expertise

I can give answers on cat breeding and showing having 'served' over 30 years in this particular field. I head up a Yahoo Group and also a cat club (NBA Cat Club) devoted to educating novices in the correct way to breed, and also show with both GCCF and TICA on a regular basis, and am well versed with the show world, having been involved in the management of the major GCCF Supreme Show in the UK for over 25 years. Genetics however is not my strong point.

Experience in the area

30 years of continuous cat breeding and showing with two major organisations.

Organizations

GCCF (UK) TICA Various UK cat clubs

Publications

Our Cats, Cat World, Club magazines

Education/Credentials

Normal middle school education, and college. Best education credentials I have are raw experience of 30 years

2014-12-30 Breeding after C section:

I am rather concerned that your girl has had 4 litters when she is only 3 years old. In fact she has had 5 if you count this last c.section one!   She should not have been bred from until she was 1 year
