The Feline Rescue Network provides basic
cat care information and links in order to educate cat owners and
owners. In far too many cases, people
have lost their pets or been forced to give up animals
because they did not understand that animal's basic behaviors and
needs. Please do help educate others about each
species or breed BEFORE they get a pet and caution them to ONLY get a pet if they can
honestly commit to that responsibility for the lifetime of the animal. If they are considering buying a whole
animal as a pet, please tell them the advantages of spaying or neutering that pet.
Only a very few purebred cats, as identified by knowledgeable breeders, are likely to contribute to their breed's important health, beauty and temperament characteristics.
It is a rare cat that is qualified for a responsible, pedigreed breeding program!
If a person is not ready to undertake the increased level of commitment to a breed which that entails, then other options are available that will still allow them the enjoyment of their chosen breed. Please ask them to consider the neutered or spayed rescue cat as one of those
options! Thanks for caring!
