This is simply false. I'd ask you to back your claim up, but I know you won't be able to.
I don't know why you like to make this statement in various threads. It's been refuted every time.
If you're getting your info from Petfinder, do keep in mind that the animals they list as "breed specific" are almost 100% incorrect. They do that to get people to look. Because believe it or not, people want purebreds.
Oh, I didn't realize from my post that said "animals" and your post which did not specify that we were just talking about cats. I certainly wasn't just talking about cats and did not say cats, I said "animals". I realize this is the Cat Site but we also talk about dogs, exotics, and other animals.
Kai, I don't think I could back it up sufficiently for you if I posted a 100 links, we will just have to agree to disagree. I'm sure it is true that there are more purebred dogs than cats in shelters, my point was purebred animals get turned into shelters alot and get pulled from shelters alot by BS Rescue.
