I don't envy you, KK. How is it that you ended up with a Savannah that, apparently, belongs to someone else, in your house? I mean, she's obviously not a rescue, given her breeding; did you sign a contract with her breeder that agreed to give her this type of control?

With our MC's, I actually had to sign a contract stating that I wasn't going to breed them (this was about price), because the pricing for them to breed was higher than as pets, for the same cat. Given I have zero interest in adding to the (already horrible over-abused/dumped/etc.) cat population, regardless of any perceived "gains" vis-a-vis selling kittens, I was happy to sign it. These were our first "boughten" cats in years, as the rest had been rescues, either from rescue shelters or literally rescued-by-us cats. Our previous purebreds had been some decades ago.

No, she belongs to me, well the dog might have an opinion on that. The breeder was trying to keep her options open with the possibility of bringing an outside Male in. As a former dog breeder, I can appreciate options.besides, the possibility of being left with a5 to 10k kitten as a fee isn't hard to swallow. I do think though that we need to sort this this calendar year. It's kind of like childbirth. You forget how horrible it is until you're in the moment.

Edit due to phone issues... The forgetting of the agony of childbirth and cats in heat and the resultant cuteness of humans and kittens is probably the only reason both species have not died out
