|Unless you are an experienced show person and experienced breeder, I highly recommend you run, not walk away from this situation. I can see about a zillion things going wrong with this.
Rory's mommy will tell you, and I know this, no responsible breeder is going to sell or give a whole male, to an inexperienced show/breeder person.
How it usually works, is she gets one breeding, then you get one breeding, or, you get a free kitten, from her breeding. Both parties get something from the arrangement, so exactly what is she giving you?
Who is going to show the kitten, in the MC breed classes? It is very expensive to run a breed cat. Ballpark entry fee is $50, the bench cage is ballpark $25, then you have your hotel, around $100 if not higher, then your gas to and from the show, and whatever you eat, and this is per show, and the breed cats, go to alot, of shows, if they are campaigning the kitten.
Who is responsible for transportation of the kitten to her house and back? Who is responsible for the daily care, and vet, if needed, and what if the kitten has a serious and expensive vet issue, who is going to be responsible?
These "situations" are better left, to the experienced show/breeder people, who actually know each other.
Maybe Rory's mommy could pawmail you, with what your going to be up against, in detail, with dealing with a whole male, another situation that is best left to the experienced show/breed people. You are not going to be able, to let him roam the house with the other kitties.
Why do you feel, she is a good breeder?
Just because she let you carry her cat to the ring?
Pawmail me who the breeder is. And if you are so sure, there is nothing wrong with this, email some breeders, and ask them, if they would do this arraingment with you, some are not going to be so nice, with their ansers.
What show did you go to?
Not picking on you or yelling at you, still kinda depressed, I just can see you getting the short end of the stick on this. All you wanted, was a MC kitten, keep looking, she is holding you hostage and taking advantage of you. Please do not do this.
