Should I feel guilty about purchasing a pedigreed cat when pet overpopulation is such an issue?

I thought about this many time before I purchased Goma. And many people told me I should get a kitten from the shelter... Should I feel guilty about purchasing a pedigreed cat when pet overpopulation is such an issue? The anwer is If you are purchasing from a reputable breeder the answer is a resounding NO.

Here is why.

Without responsible breeders many of the beautiful breeds you see in magazines, TV, and at cat shows would be extinct. Yes, extinct. It is estimated that pedigreed cats account for only 8% of the cat population. Responsible and reputable breeders are bettering their chosen breed by breeding only the best of their breed. They are doing their part to end overpopulation by selling their kittens on non breeding agreements that require spaying/neutering of their pet kittens or practicing early spay/neutering. Reputable breeders carefully screen their adopters to help to ensure their cats will live a long happy life in a forever home and don't wind up in a shelter. When you purchase a pedigreed cat from a reputable breeder you are supporting the breed you love and helping to ensure the breed is here and healthy for a long time to come. Now that's something to feel good about!!

Only buy a PEDIGREED kitten from a responsible and ethical breeder! Do NOT buy from a breeder that is only breeding cats to make money, or a commercial large type "cattery" or a pet store!

Text quoted from Suzette's website(Cozycreek Cattery).

So Suzette is very responsible breeder who make sure that all kittens have a nutered contracts. She is also registered with Registered with TICA, CFA & CFF. I would say, supporting breeder like Suzette is very important to continue having this wonderful breed of cats!
