Oooh, yikes! That's kind of what I thought after I thought about it for a bit. I remember hearing the term YEARS ago (like, 20 years ago or more)..it was NOT on the internet...perhaps in a book or cat magazine even?? Shows how easily one can be taken in by misinformation. Ugh.

Another interesting tibbit of info - (from cat books in the 70's). Peke-face was only used to describe Red or Red Tabby cats! I remember one book called them "hot house flowers" because they were more prone to problems and breeders had a hard time breeding them.
