One of the most important things you can do after knowing you want a certain cat breed is to choose a good breeder? But how do you choose a good breeder? What do you look for?
How do you find a good breeder? The best recommendation may come from your veterinarian. Veterinarians generally will work with breeders and know which breeders do a responsible job providing good care and those who don't. Veterinarians may also see health problems from certain breed lines and may know of breeders to avoid.
If your veterinarian doesn't have any recommendations, ask anyone you know that has that breed if they have a good recommendation. You may also contact the local breed rescue group for additional recommendations.
