farmcat added to gene pool

American Curl kittens gene pool. 

Unregistered cats are brought into the small breeding pool to keep it healthy.  The unregistered cat will add "suvival of the fittest genes " where breeding out to a pedigree cat from another breed might add the faulty genes bred over and over into that breed.  This does not suggest that pedigree cats have a lot of defects, but it is always good to bring in new genes for a wider gene pool where the breed started with one cat.
Here is our new queen.  The older queens have been bred back into the genepool, new blood was needed.  I imported a new stud but he had my bloodlines in already, we had to act.
We are so happy with the results.  Great success.  Lovely and healthy kittens.  The American Curl lines were healthy, but now we know they will remain so.
 Her litter was a great success.
and they are even prettier grown up.  The straight ear Americancurl cats/kittens are lovely and the best news is that these kittens had the calm friendly disposition popular in the American Curl breed.  The kitten above and photo below.
A special thank you to human mom for the photo.
