|First off, I am not looking to adopt/purchase a cat now, but will be in about 8-9 months after I graduate from college.
I am currently doing some research into how to choose a cat and what age/type will fit best into my household (just me and my Yellow Lab service dog Pebbles).
I have fallen in love with the Russian Blue breed --I've read all about them and their traits sound like exactly what I'm looking for in a cat.
Now, the cat doesn't have to be pure. I'd be perfectly content with a mix.
How do you find a responsible, reputable Russian Blue breeder? I saw that there's one in Texas in Cat Fancy magazine, but I'm wary of magazine ads.
I'm also looking for a Russian Blue rescue --I would prefer adopting a Russian, but would consider a breeder if they are responsible and the cats are all healthy.
I see some Russians listed on Petfinder --but how do I tell if they really are the breed or a mix of the breed?
Again, just doing some research. If I do not find a Russian, I'd still be very happy to have a regular mixed moggle cat --I've wanted a cat for so long (but I live in the dorm now, so I have to wait until I graduate and move.)
Thanks for any help/head butts in the right direction.
