Are you looking for a Devon Rex kitten?
Be sure to buy your new kitten from
a reputable REGISTERED Breeder.
A Registered Breeder is someone registered with a recognised
Association, eg. GCCF, CFA, FIFe, TICA, WCF,
A Registered Breeder will have a registered Prefix to identify
Most Associations / Registering bodies have similar
aims and objectives.
Registered Breeders only breed purebred, registered cats, in
line with the breed standards set out by their registering body.
All of their cats have registration papers. Registered Breeders are
usually bound by a strict code of conduct.
A non- registered breeder is not a member of an association
and does not have a Breeder's prefix. Often they will have little
(or no) knowledge of genetic problems or the pedigree lines of
their breeding cats. Sometimes kittens will be bred for financial
gain and purchasers receive little or no advice, support or health
warranty for their kitten. Often kittens bred by non-Registered
Breeders will end up for sale in pet stores.
Many Registered breeders support early desexing or have
'desexing by agreement contracts'.
Non- registered breeders generally do not bother as they have
no regard for the future of the breed.
