I would definitely follow up and ask that breeder why he/she would not recommend the one near you. Also, find out as much as you can about the one you are considering -- what breed associations he/she belongs to, etc. And definitely visit and see how the cats behave, if the place is clean, etc.
Then you'll have to follow your instincts.

And I certainly agree about letting the cat choose you. I went in with my heart set on a platinum mink. I sat down and Emily (a champaign point) was in my lap in a matter of minutes. That that was that.

Same thing with Eddie. I went thinking I was going to bring home another female, since all I'd ever had was female pets. He quickly changed my mind.

>>Thanks so much for all the information. I figured owners are my best source since Ive already picked up a couple of books and some of the information is conflicting. I have been reading about them quite a bit and am excited. I contacted two breeders and both will have kittens in the Dec time frame which could work out for me. Im going thru a life change and thought it would be great to add another member to my family. My kids have always wanted a kitten ( or 2) but now I think we are all ready.

>>Another question. One breeder I contacted is no longer doing it but said they did not recommend the breeder that is nearest to me. They didnt say why so Im not sure what to do. Having one closer seems a good idea since if there are any questions or issues its not too far. I can visit the local one.. that may be my best bet.
