        It's a start, but that cat's probably like only 24% inbred.
        I want those genes SMASHED and those chromosomes SLAMMED until they're unrecognizable.

    I guess I've not lived with THAT many cats but I've never known a cat that was not controllable by its primary caretaker. The online memes about cats breaking all your shit has never been my experience, and I've come to assume that people who claim that and say they don't like cats did not treat their cats well and/or their living space made the cat perpetually stressed out.

      You've not lived with enough cats. There are plenty that are simply unsociable, enough that cat fanboys can go their lives thinking two cats will always attack each other and other dumb shit. Sometimes domestication has throwbacks.

      Only breeders can fight against those - unless they emphasize them.

    Maybe this marks me as poor but what's the point of buying a certain breed of cat? Based on research I've done, cat personality is individualistic enough that phenotype is a poor indicator of personality. I would just go to a shelter or foster place and see what cat vibes with me and get that one.

      With enough breeding cat personalities begin to get consistent and that can only happen if you support and work with your local cat breeders. Shit, given a century or two you could actually breed cats that really do exterminate rodents.

      This is perfectly fine, valid, and acceptable. So long as you don't support byb then that's fine by me.
      Honestly, the biggest draws to cat breeds are aesthetics, health and energy levels. Temperament does play a part (Maine coons are known to be laid back, ragdolls are known to be very affectionate, etc) but you're right in that personality isn't affected so much, at least not as much as it is in dogs.
      Health though? Both mental and genetic? You're so much more in the clear with a cat from a breeder.

    There are some breeds I would like but I can't justify buying one. There are too many cats in shelters. And browsing FB local groups there are countless cats that are hungry or injured that need help on the street. I think anyone should look take a look at how dire the situation is before deciding to buy and further encourage breeders.

    • 4 weeks ago

      The cats in shelters aren't coming from breeders, same as dogs in shelters aren't coming from breeders. The only way you could contribute to the insane amount of cats in shelters is if you let your unspayed female cat get out and frick males and just sell/give away the kittens to whoever. Or if you don't shoot every feral you see.
      Going to a breeder is actually a positive in this sense. Most cat breeders have a waitlist and so every kitten goes to a home that wanted it enough to wait potentially months for it. Not only that, but contracts often force you to return the kitten to the breeder if you ever can't care for it properly. If more people got cats from actual breeders rather than opps litters then maybe the people who let oops litters happen will die out. Idk. Wishful thinking I guess.
      Anyway, you shouldn't feel bad about supporting good breeders. If you want to adopt, then go for it, but don't do it out of misplaced guilt.

          Usually they'll try to check-in, it's common to have an on-going relationship with your breeder. This goes for dog and horse breeders too. A good breeder wants to ensure their produced animals are being cared for, providing continued support, without being overbearing. Its one of the positives (Depending on which way you look at it, I guess) of getting a kitten from a breeder.
          And yeah it's to ensure none of the cats produced by them end up in shelters, no good breeder would ever be okay with that.

              First of all they should take it back if you don't care for it properly, but that isn't what I meant. It's moreso if you decide you can no longer care for it, instead of the cat having to go to a shelter, the breeder takes it back. Just don't sign contracts that say the breeder can take the animal back 'at their own discretion' and you'll be fine.

      They are not a meme there just different from dog breeds because they are much more recent on average. While dog breeds can trace back their origin to a common ancestor “breed” (breedless dog), cats only do 200 years or less. This means that true breedless dogs don’t really exist anymore as the mutts we see are simply the result of mixing multiple long-estabilished breeds as opposed to cats which very rarely have a selective bred ancestor.
      The reason for picking a cat breed over a normal cat is not only their appearance but their personality which tends to be tamer and more sedentary in some breeds. A british shorthair or a shortnose persian is very unlikely to go wandering around your neighborhood, for example.

      There’s like 4 of them in my neighborhood. They are the most popular cat breed. The long nosed ones seem to be more common that the “official” short nosed persian, though.

        Like said, since cat breeds are so relatively new, a cat isn't a member of a breed without pedigree paperwork, end of. Cat breed 'mixes' are also exceptionally rare. Pedigree cats are just so much more uncommon than moggies, and the people who spend thousands of £ or $ on a kitten arent going to let it outside, and arent going to let it breed with a moggie. Oops litters can happen sure, but tbh I would take any purebred cat cross with an enormous grain of salt. Unless they can produce papers, it's a scam.

          a proper breeder will want to know if you buy a cat off them for companionship or breeding, and if it is the former you will likely have to provide proof within a year that it has been neutered. if they dont request a contract like that it is likely the breeder isnt breeding purebreds to begin with

              , kittens overrun shelters as it is and cat breeders dont want to ruin a good reputation by contributing to that.
              Furthermore, most breeders make distinctions between show/breeding quality kittens and pet quality kittens and price them as such, especially in the super popular breeds like Bengals, coons, and blues.

            i doubt this is the reason. breeders allow you to breed the cat if you pay them extra. they're just greedy clowns who hate competition. and how are they gonna figure out if my male cat fricked 10 strays by then? they can't. a lot of them neuter their cats before giving them away to prevent this, mine wasn't "because it's not healthy to do it too early" and asked to do so only within a year

          *Modern dog breeds. Dogs started to become specialised for certain jobs not long after they became properly domesticated

          >grugg need dog to sniff out prey. grugg choose the sniffiest puppy
          And so on. Dog breeds have come and gone, but specialization has been there from the beginning. Not to mention the different environments that the dogs needed to survive in, consider the difference in landrace breeds from the arctic circle and africa, they're incredibly specialised just due to their environment.
          Domestic cats specialised to their environment too, but that's about it. Since cats only had two jobs since the beginning of their domestication journey: be mousers and companions, there was no need for specialisation. So cat breeds are a much more recent thing.

                Hominids from Uggs through to the Edwardians didn't understand the concept of invasive species being detrimental and germ theory. From their perspective, cats were little guys that hung around and caught mice and you could pet them and they were cute, so they kept them around. Like I already said.
