How many cats are pedigreed?

I found this article that was placed on another list very interesting.

It is regarding how much of the feline population is pedigreed.

Off back under the covers, I am sick.

Interesting. I have one of each. I have had a pedigree or two since 1980 - and also had mixed breeds at the same time.

I probably will always have both pedigree and mixed. I like certain breeds

If it not works, look at the site itself, ie, www.breedingpedigreedcats.com

there is a link down there to a working paper = a pdf about 4% of household cats= pedigrees. This is it.

I have 3 pedigree cats, Simba, Angel and SunLee, and one supposed purbred Siamese, Shane. I bought Shane from a BYB, before I knew there was anything wrong about BYB's, and I didn't get papers with him. Both his mother and father looked Siamese, though.

In the UK it's about 9-10% of cats that have a pedigree. That figure roughly corresponds with the number of cats kept as indoor-only.

But this is not necessary equivalent with the pedigrees are almost always indoor only, and the "common" domestics are almost always allowed to go outside.

Opposite. When I read the Brits tell about their cats, Im fascinated it is so common they let their purebreds go outside....

Not to mention something VERY british, I think: The advice I found if the cat isnt not friendly with the husband.
a) let the husband give the food (surely a good advice)
b) let the husband sit nearest the fire. The cat usually wanting to lie nearest the fire, willy-nilly comes to the husband and lies on his lap....


In Sweden it is completely unthinkable to let the cat be somewhere near open fire... Candles?? Perhaps, but never alone...

Suddenly, I understand the Stronghold/Revolution manufactures recomendation, not to let the cat be near open fire at least half an hour after getting the Stronghold/Revolution drops on its neck (stronhold is flammable).
