Well As a breeder, I have found no diffrence in the way my cats love me and we have a house full mostly rescues. however, with my chosen breed (persians) each one has traits that i know to expect, and adore about them. the rescues. have always been more of a toss up. Now, None of my rescues have come from a Humane society, but we have given them a home. And I donate my time, Food, education and money when i can, to my local shelter.
I am gonna be long winded now, lol and make a list of how my kits showed up, lol to show our numbers:
Dutchy: Queen of the house, my first "Only my" cat. I was driving along on a rather busy highway when i swore i saw something small..but an animal in the grass off to the side...i thought no no.coulnt be. and i was just heading out for the evening..but. I stopped or it would have bugged me. Sure enough, sweet Dutchy, but a few weeks old..itty bitty and half her tail missing with a raw wound on the end.. I took her to a vet got my bottle feeding supplies And Wala A queen was with me,lol.
Loki: Loki was from a breeder, whos black persian female got out his two siblings had been orange, and loki was the black cat, no one wanted him. not sure why but the "breeder" was about to toss him out onto the street, at only about 4-6 weeks(she couldnt tell me so i use the term "breeder" lossely!") I asked her to give him to me..she wouldnt just give him to me, so i had 10 bucks on me. and offered her that, she handed me the cat than..and I took him home (this was but a few weeks after finding dutchy) so there were two.
Jellie & Bellie They were born Barn kitties,their mom was run over by a tractor when they were 3 weeks old. A friend told me about it, So I went and picked them up from their barn, and took them in..my mom was convinced they woulnt live. But they did
Jade: Tortie with Tude. Basset hound Athena brought her home. I thought "Oh NO OMG she brought a dead cat home" (dont ask me how that rotten hound ran out of the yard lol) but she dropped the cat..that cat looked up at me and went "Mew" she hasnt stopped talking since!
Callie, Halen, Gwenie and Arthur: My oppsy babies. We were suppose to just "watch" a boy for an ex co worker. He was big furry and supposedly fixed (my girls were set up for their spays in the coming weeks) well...turned out the boy kitty was not..and we ended up with some litters. We rehomed 3 of the babies born,and kept the others because we could give them a home and another kittie out there who needed saving could get the home my oppsies may have taken. And Callie, was always going to stay..she was born with a deformed leg.
Little A: A mircale in his own right. His daddy was my purebred male, his momma my SPAYED Jellie....(well supposedly spayed. last time i use that vet) but we love him to bits.
Maia: A purebred Persian, rescued from a "breeder" she has IBS and if she eats ANY kind of kibble she gets very bad stools. She needs Raw diet only. they didnt know what was wron with her..and didnt wanna spend the money to find out. She was skin and bones when I got her. Shes happy, healthy and FAT and FURRY now
Lilly, Lace & Lyla:My only breeder girls. I love my sweet Persian girls. but you will see they are way out numbered.
My rainbow Boys
LG: the bad boy male. Who was fixed after we ended up with the oppses. His owner never did call for him..and he sadly passed.
Ares: My purebred boy..who had a Liver Shunt. Poor boy.
So now i wrote a novel. LOL but you can see from a breeders POV just how the scales tip in this house, LOL
