Breed information of cats of the breed ACM
So you want your curl to be cheerful and wholesome so you can spend your quality of life with him, so do your work before you take him home. To find out more about the story, character and appearance of the breed, or to find growers, please see the Cat Fanciers Association, Cats Center Stage, the Fanciers Breeder Referral List, and The International Cat Association website.
Make at least as much research into your kitty as you would into selecting a new vehicle or costly equipment. Respectable breeders adhere to a conduct codex which forbids the sale to animal shops and wholesale dealers and defines the responsibility of the breeders towards their own dogs and purchasers.
Select a grower who has completed the necessary healthcare certification to avoid as far as possible the risk of genetically determined conditions and a grower who cats indoors. Many serious growers have web sites, so how can you tell who's good and who's not? Among the colored banners are always available kitties, several throws on the site, the selection of any kitty and the possibility to purchase your kitty on-line with a payment method.
These things are practical, but they are almost never associated with serious growers. No matter whether you plan to get your cat lover from a cat farmer, an animal shop or another resource, don't ignore the old saying "Let the purchaser take care". Renowned kennels and kennels can be difficult to tell apart from dependable farms.
There is no 100% guarantee that you will never buy a diseased catkin, but research into the race (so you know what to expect), reviewing the establishment (to help determine unsanitary or diseased animals) and asking the right question can decrease the chance of getting into a catastrophic state.
Don't neglect to ask your vet, who can often point you to a serious kennel owner, a breeding organisation or some other trusted resource for you. You may have to allow six month or more for the right kitty to be available, according to what you are looking for. A lot of growers will only let kitties into their new home at the tender ages of 12 to 16week.
When you buy a kitty, consider whether an mature curl could be a better option for your life style. You know exactly what your personalities and your personal well-being will be with an grown-up. When you are interested in buying an adulthood instead of a kitty, ask the breeder to buy a pensioned show or pedigree kitty or if you know of an adulthood kitty who needs a new home.
