Her name is Teah and she is pure white (the photo does not tell) with green eyes, a svelte body and is a sweety. does anyone have a male Cornish Rex with baby blue eyes? I live in Queens, New York this is not for really just hoping to get a baby white, with blue eyes. You can have one or 2 of the kittens...

    are you planning on showing the kittens or the mother? because if she is not of show quiality you really shouldnt breed her, but get her fixed. not trying to preach, but thats just the ethical thing to do.

    Actually, the division of pedigreed cats into \"pet quality\" and \"show quality\" is often arbitrary. A Maine Coon with a kink in its tail will be disqualified from the ring in the CFA, even if it\'s an otherwise beautiful specimen of the breed. That would be a good example of a \"pet quality\" cat. But in cases when cats do not have defects that automatically disqualify them, it is not always so easy to distinguish between \"pet\" and \"show\" quality--many people have bought a so-called \"pet\" quality cat and done quite well in the show ring, or have bred that cat and produced Grand Champions (conversely, Grand Champions have been known to produce inferior offspring). Some breeders speak of a third category, \"breeding quality.\" This means that the cat may not become a Grand Champion or Regional Winner, but would be considered by the cat fancy to be appropriate to breed. In the Maine Coon world, this is an important distinction because size is of great importance in judging cats, but there is a large discrepancy between the size of male and female cats. Thus, there are very few female Grand Champions. Generally, with both males and females, having the title of Champion is considered an adequate indication of fitness for breeding. Yet becoming a Champion, if you are a cat registered with a recognized cat registry, and come from generations of such cats, is not usually that difficult. If it were a requirement that only Grand Champions or Regional/National/International Winners should be allowed to breed, there would be practically no pedigreed cats. And we\'re not talking about the world of backyard breeders here; we\'re talking about the world of top breeders, who are deadly serious about what kind of animals the produce and how they do in the show ring.
