Just hoping an expert may be able to clear something up for me. What is a registered breeder (talking about cats in particular).
My sister is looking a Maine coon kittens, I too have a Maine coon. She believes that providing she goes to a registered breeder the kitten is a pure bred. I believe that ANYONE can be a registered breeder and only pedigree papers and registration with one of the cat council places means a kitten is a pure bred.
Can't you be a registered breeder of moggies even? Don't you just have to register with the local council and you are a registered breeder?
Someone who knows more than us help!! Just hate for her to pay $1000 for this kitten and it is not a pure Maine coon, is doesn't "look" pure to me....
We are in Victoria if that helps
