I don't like that site at all - I know nothing about the breeder, but I do not like their website. Rexes are not hypoallergenic because most people with cat allergies are allergic to saliva, not fur. Also their first statement is that you can go out without having cat hair on your clothes. What? That is not my first consideration when getting a cat, if that's a real problem get a stuffed toy.

Sorry I know nothing about that breeder but the front page of their site has annoyed me.
What is their breeding programme? Breeding for health and temperament, or so you don't get a "gasp" cat hair on your evening gown?

I wouldn't give them a second glance (and if they are good ethical breeders, they really need to rethink their website!)

IMO there are a lot of red flags with this breeder. I'd cross that one off the list. Besides what Epona pointed out, I don't like the fact that it seems none are being shown and they don't seem to be very typey.

I glanced at one of the pedigrees - some are out of Logenberry Rexes which is a good one, but the type doesn't seem to be there from what is posted.

Its better then the other one; but I still have a problem with one main thing - there are NO pictures of her breeding cats and who they are and if they are really champion or not. She just mentions "champion lines" - that means there is champions in the pedigree but doesn't mean they are SHOWN. Could be champions 4-5 or more generations and none recent.

All she shows is kitten pictures. Even if looking for a pet and not a show, I would not buy from this breeder either.

Thanks for the input. I am still doing a lot of research about all the cattery's that have responded to me so as I get more info from the others I will keep updating.

To help you out with catteries. Some things to look for (even if you are not showing and only want a pet).

1. Does the breeder post pictures of their adult cats (males/females) and do they have titles of champion or grand champion?

2. Do the cats fit the standard? Even if you only buy a pet, the cats that are breeding cats should look close to the written standard of the breed - otherwise the breeder is only breeding pet quality cats to start. Show quality cats don't produce ALL show quality kittens, but the cat should still fit the standard for the most part (maybe a minor "fault" here and there).

3. Do they test their cats for genetic problems? Is the cattery FELV and FIP cleared.? Do they offer a written health guarantee? Are all shots given to the kittens? Do they neuter/spay before placing them in homes?

4. Do you get a copy of the pedigree and registration papers?

5. Do the cats/kittens look healthy and alert and not scared or shy? (I've seen a breeder with a picture of a kitten that had runny eyes and was sick looking).

6. Is the breeder willing to take back their kittens/cats if things don't work out.

7. Is the breeder in the general price range of other breeders?
