  • Can a backyard breeder breed purebred cats?

  • A backyard breeder is not registered with a cat council, and may or may not use purebred cats. They do not breed to the breed standard. As they are not registered, they cannot provide pedigree papers for kittens produced. Kittens are typically (but not always) produced on a small scale.

  • A registered cat breeder is registered with a cat association (also known as a cat council) such as the Cat Fanciers Association, The International Cat Association and must abide by their code of ethics. They only breed with registered purebred cats and breed to the breed standard.

  • Should I buy kittens from a breeder or a cattery?

  • Most registered breeders produce litters on a small scale, which means each litter gets plenty of human interaction. As a rule, I prefer to buy from kittens who are raised underfoot, which means they grow up inside the home of the breeder instead of in an outside cattery.
