I am a hobby breeder of old-style Siamese.
My kittens are lovingly reared indoors, are wormed, weaned and litter trained before going to their new homes at a minimum age of 13 weeks. Kittens are registered with the GCCF, are vaccinated for Feline Panleucopenia (FPV), Feline Herpes Virus (FHV), Feline Calicivirus (FCV) and Feline Leukaemia. They are also micro-chipped and insured for four/five weeks depending on which insurer the new owner prefers.
I occasionally sell for breeding either to experienced breeders who want to import new genes into their line or to new breeders, who I am happy to mentor. Very few people wish to breed as a hobby, but I can confirm it can be fun, very rewarding as well as heartbreaking at times. It is also an expensive hobby and few breeders ‘break even’ at the end of the year, so it is not for those who think it may be an income!
