Some Questions for Breeders

You can discover a lot about a breeder just by asking some questions, for example:

How many years have you been breeding cats?
How many cat breeds do you currently have?
How large is your cat breeding operation?
Can I see where your cats and kittens spend most of their time?
What congenital defects are present in this breed?
May I have any cat or kitten checked out by my vet before I adopt?
What happens if the cat gets sick? Is there a health guarantee?
Is this cat "pet quality" or "show quality", and why?

Any good breeder welcomes your questions - it signals to them that you are a caring buyer and gives them some reassurance that their cats would be going to a good home.
