Let me see what I can find with the California breeders - how far are you willing to go or be willing to ship from? I know of several other breeders outside of California that have good cats.

Will email you some cattery info.

Thank You Goldenkitty45,within 3 to 4 hours driving distance,and shipping from anywhere in the US or Canada would be fine,I just want to make sure I get a good breeder.I'm looking to get the kitten late fall or early winter, but will be willing to wait for the right kitten if none are available at that time. Thanks Fairy_kitten

Sent you an email with some info. Let me know who you pick or are most interest in and I'll check into it further (or if you find another cattery). We don't want you to be ripped off like with the other kitten!

No Devon on the list this time?
post #8 of 21
She is done with Devons.
Did you also notice there are no sphynx on her list.
She likes Cleo but sphynx are to much work to show.
My sister wrote a few breeders tonight and got a reply from a Cornish Rex breeder in So Cal.
Martice sent my sister a list of breeders that can be trusted.

So Jacky will be our guru, huh?
I like the Russian Blue and Havana Brown better, but if you like all of them equally, I would get the one that does best in shows... If you are going to show CFA, for what I can see Russian Blues are more popular - this based only on their website; I am sure experienced breeders/show attendants will give you a better idea of the most popular of those four...

Much luck!! How very exciting! I too am interested in a purebred show kitty! I am about to start showing my DSH kitten in HHP, but I have a 10 year history o showing dogs, so it is kind of a natural progression for me. Hope you find the kitty of your dreams!! I am interested in Turkish Angora, Turkish Vans and Maine Coons...probably the Angora first.
