Well, I'm priceless! And I'm not for sale. And Catster rightly doesn't allow you to advertise your cats for sale, although they do seem to like it when you offer to adopt out your beloved pet (don't quite understand why they want cats with furrever homes to be adopted out, but whatever). Anyway, Chibi was doing some calculations, and she figured out that, even if you ignore the usual vet fees and food and litter costs, I have probably cost Mommy about $6000 in cat show fees. I was not terribly expensive, even by U.S. standards--about $800--but cat shows are expensive, and it's important for a breeder to stay in the loop by going to cat shows. So, for all of you who think that all breeders are in it for the money--a big har har har to that. Not that we're asking for charity, just that people understand why we laugh hysterically when people ask us if we can make a living by breeding.
