Hello, as the owner of purebred show Ch. Dogs and a breeder I was curious. The temperamentsâ€™ of a purebred dog are far more consistent then a mix and I was wondering if it was the same with cats. Iâ€™ve had cats before but nothing more than barn cats and cat mutts I guess you could call them. Iâ€™ve never really had a cat that I liked or that really liked me. Most of them never really wanted to be with people.
I was considering getting a cat when I moved to Oregon, but I want a cat that I am going to KNOW what it will be like much like my dogs. I have no clue where to start (you think it would be easy for me, but I just donâ€™t speak cat!) so I was hoping someone could help me. What should I expect with a good cat breeder? What kinds of health test should I be looking for? What kinds of titles? I know what makes a great dog breeder but catsâ€¦thatâ€™s another story. I donâ€™t have a breed in mind but I know I donâ€™t want a cat that just straight up ignores you, or doesnâ€™t like its people. I want a friendly cat, loving. Grooming is not a problem to me as I groom dogs every day to keep them in show condition. Mostly a family cat that can catch a mouse if it feel like it.
