How are you going to breed him "true " for eight generations? Do you realize that's a whole truckload of cats and kittens for 8 generations. That's not just breeding this one cat eight times. It means that your cats offsprings, offsprings, offsprings,offsprings.offsprings,offsprings,offsprings,offspring would finally be registerable. In the meantime your producing hundreads of cats that are not pedigreed-what about them? Will you keep them all? How are you going to find homes for hundreds of cats? All that just so this one cat that you love will be in a pedigree?
Im not judging you but it's just not realistic for one person to be able to do this and it's certainly not fair to all of the "by-products" (for lack of a better descriptive term) of your trying to get your one cat in a pedigree.
