Tips to Choose a Responsible Cat Breeder


Breeding cats is more than just putting two cats together and letting them follow their mating instincts.  It involves a certain degree of patience, responsibility, care and effort that only the best choices in breeders will achieve.  Breeding cats involves actual scientific and systematic ideas and also involves an emotional aspect; a cat breeder’s fulfillment does not come from the money they make, it comes from the accomplishment of mating two cats to produce offspring.  The best of breeder’s have one main goal in mind – to safeguard the welfare of the cats.

Characteristics of a Responsible Cat Breeder

  • Preservation or improvement of a cat pedigree is of utter importance –

Making the difficult choice of the parent cats is done on the basis of health, high quality traits, and reproducing capability.  A truly responsible breeder will in no way pair cats carelessly.

  • Being the most up-to-date on the latest news and information about cat breeding –

The welfare of the cats, both parents and offspring, depends on how much the breeder knows and has practiced in the past.  The newest researches need to be employed to correctly select the cats to be bred in order to produce the appropriate offspring.

  • The time it takes to select the cats and conduct the breeding –

If you were to approach a cat breeder and he or she tells you the process of selecting the parents is simple and should take no time at all, you may want to consider a different breeder.  A responsible breeder will take the appropriate amount of time, making the necessary plans to achieve the proper outcome.

  • Adhering to government guidelines –

The government imposes certain guidelines to ensure that cat breeding is not abused and is done properly.  Breeders are obligated to register their cats to their respective breeds.  In addition, there are certain taxes imposed, as breeding is a business.

  • A breeder’s primary concern is the welfare of the cats, not the money –

There can be a substantial amount of money to be made in the process of breeding pedigree cats, but that should not be the first concern of a responsible breeder.  A responsible breeder will relish in the development of the kittens, and should be apparent to you, the customer.

When choosing a cat breeder to provide you or your family with a pedigree cat, it is important for you to ask many questions and to ensure that the breeder you choose will have the best interest of the cats as his first priority.

  2. This was posted by Rose Marie Zizzo, who has been suspended for life from The Cat Fanciers Ass. Inc. for conduct detrimental to cat breeders, harassment and animal welfare issues. She is NOT the person to be telling you anything. She spouts Jesus out of one side of her mouth while lying, stalking, harassing, extorting and just generally being nasty. She puts these posts everywhere trying to get people to to her nasty hate filled website. She is seriously deranged! You can see her suspension, court judgment against her, and some of the nasty threatening emails she send, her fraud of claiming copyright on things that do not belong to her, getting peoples websites down when they oppose her etc, at pedigree-cbs (dot) org
    She is a seriously dangerous sociopath.

  3. Here is the truth about Zizzo
    My name is Mark,
    I am Rose Marie Zizzo’s cousin. I feel the need to explain to everyone who has posted comments blogs and words of hate about my cousin the reason she is the way she is and to warn innocent people of potential misery.

    Rose Marie was always a troubled child but trouble turned to tragedy when she was 11 years old Rosemarie had always exhibited signs of mental instability however when she was 11 years old, we were just kids and my cousin, who had always been obsessed with cat’s, ruthlessly poured gasoline on the neighbor’s cat, then lit it with a lighter she stole from my mother, I ran screaming to my mother Rosemarie stood and watched with fascination.

    My mother quickly called 911 but it took them over 24 minutes to get to our home and sadly it was too late for the little kitten, it was at that time my cousin was taken from our home and placed in a mental facility. She lived out the next several years there and was stabilized on medication for her Schizophrenia disorder, she appeared to be fine when they released here but then she began to collect cats in her trailer until one day a someone reported her to the authorities for having over 75 cats in her trailer many of which were severely sick and deprived of human compassion.

    As the investigation continued multiple cat bodies were found stored in her freezer, it was at this time that our family discovered that Rose Marie had stopped taking her medication, she was once again hospitalized for week in 1/2 and released. Having all of her cats taken from her she turned her mentally deranged mind to the Internet where she began a marathon of stalking cat breeders building what appeared to be cat breeder consumer sites.

    Because of her ongoing harassment and defamation of reputable breeders, tons of breeders began to complain about Rose Marie to CFA, they banned her from ever registering cats. She was now banned from the world’s largest cat breeding registry and all of her cats she once owned were taken from her. One would have thought this would have been the end of her brutal online attacks against pedigreed cat breeders, it would have been in a sound and stable humans mind but that was not the case with Rose Marie Zizzo.

    Going on and off of her medication made her medical condition even worse. She had become fixated on a woman known as Melanie Lowery. Melanie was a cat breeder who had sold her a cat, my cousin began to post comments that the cat was ill and Melanie was evil, after enduring two years of vicious attacks from Rose Marie Melanie had finally had enough and filed a lawsuit she won this lawsuit in the amount of $7500, my cousin was found guilty of Internet cyber bulling and wrongful defamation of character our family had to scrape together the money to pay Melanie for my cousin’s wrongful actions.

    This slap on the hand did not faze my sister, she continued to widen her selection of cat breeders primarily consisting of Persian and Himalayan cat breeders then quickly turned on all other pedigree cat breeders. At this point Rose Marie had been kicked out of CFA, lost a lawsuit, had a judgment against her to silence her online attacks and all of her cats were taken from her, these events continued to deteriorate her mental illness, as our family we did not know what to do for psychological disorder which escalated around the world via the Internet so we began to distance ourselves from her and remind her we would not be here to bail her out financially again.

    Her family support network had been exhausted by her controversial behavior and outburst which occurred on a day to day basis, her irritable moods could be triggered from a certain food, too little or not enough sleep. The one thing we began to notice was how the simple glance at even a feral cat launched her into another online tirade and violent declamation. Her wild words pushed cat breeders to form an alliance against her, while some fought back others ignored her demagogue, vehement ways.

    To this day Rose Marie continues to build multiple complaint sites in which she uses to feed her perplexed and delusion state of mind. These web sites are as dangerous as she is, with no family no cats and no friends only a computer she learned the dangerous skill of installing malicious spyware and tracking malware on her sights to see how many people were reading her disoriented post about cat breeders.
