Dolly the quintessential kitten!
According to the humane society Four million cats and dogs—about one every eight seconds—are put down in U.S. shelters each year. Get a shelter animal and "boycat" animal sellers! She was available for a song at SF-SPCA in 2010. It's a simple numbers game. When you buy from a breeder that is one less spot for another cat and it encourages an unethical industry. As with humans, beauty is skin deep and you can find the personality you want by visiting a shelter. There are all kinds of cats and behaviors are not breed specific all the time. Don't look the other way on this one. Find a shelter, not a seller.
There is no real value in sustaining cat breeds. This is Eugenics pure and simple. There's no loss to society if we don't have manipulated cat genes.
Did you choose your friends or wife for the way they look? How happy are you?
