Looking for cat/breeder

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
We currently have 2 cats (and a small dog), but I am interested in adopting another cat, but this time a purebred. I have done some research and am interested in a Turkish Angora or other long-harid, blue eyed (hearing) cat. I have never purchased a purebred cat so I am not sure how to find a breeder or what questions to ask. Is there a website available with questions to ask that I could print out?

The kind of cat that I am looking for is a white, long-haird (or med. hair) cat with blue eyes. His/her personality must be laid-back and able to handle a very busy household. She must be affectionate and purr and "talk". I want my cat to WANT to snuggle with me. Could anyone help me find a cat like this?

I live in Eastern PA and would prefer to adopt locally.

Thanks for all your help!!!

DO some homework... plus what your asking NO breeder can say for certain a cat will talk( yes some breed talk more than others)

Also, white cats with blue eyes....you will want to be sure you are finding a good breeder. I've known some "mediocre" breeders to let blue eyed whites slip through the cracks. It'll be hard to find a solid white blue eyed kitty, even purebred, that hears, IMO. But, I am best with moggies, so do not take my word to be 100% true.

Check out this thread - possibly one of the most informative threads in the Breeder's forum!

Oh about a white long haired talking cat - will you go for a semi long not necessarily pointed white cat that talks? May I suggest you look at the rarer breeds like the Javanese and Balinese? Wonderful cats with great purrsonalities!

Here is a good site for finding breeders

I recommend in going to a few cat shows in your area. Here is a link to CFA shows

I know a Turkish Angora breeder in Philly - will pm you the info, you can contact her and see if she's still showing/breeding.
