I tend to place the majority of my kittens as pets and they all fall into the same price range, pet or show quality. To me, whether it is show quality or pet quality, the most important thing is a happy home. If I put a show quality into a pet home and they want to show the kitten, great.

When I evaluate my kittens and put up their availability at around 4 weeks, I nominate breed, breed/show, show/pet. If someone comes along and wants one of the potential breed kittens as a pet only or a show pet they can have it at the pet price. I only place breeders with people that I know and very rarely.

Hi Dawn,

I have the exact same viewpoint as Sue (she is my breeder). I too ensure good, caring homes before worrying about what they will be going home as.

I offer kittens as pet, pet/show or breeder/show. I will not sell a breeder kitten if the potential owner does not see the point in showing. If a breeder doesn't show any of their cats, how do they know what breed standards to breed for.

I too would be over the moon if one of my pet owners took one of my kittens to a show and the kitten behaved, it shows that my kittens are brought up well and the breeding is good.

Jen
