Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.

"History
Munchkin is a naturally occurring, domestic cat breed characterized by unusually short legs. These short-legged cats have been documented in 1930s in England. But World War II took its toll on the cat and threatened the extinction of this species. These cats were rediscovered in Europe in 1980s. Breeders undertook measures to conserve this breed and since then this breed has flourished. Recently it has been accepted as breed by TICA. "

How do minor cat breeds become a real pedigree cat breed?

A cat that no one recognizes, such as a Napoleon or Kucing Malaysia.. How are they recognized to be true pedigrees? What do they have to go through? And is it even possible to reinvigorate an almost dead cat breeding attempt?
If you happen to have knowledge on the Kucing Malaysia cat, please tell me about them!

In order to be a recognized breed they have to be accepted by a majority vote by the registry's board members. IE, TICA has monthly meetings of all its Regional Directors. At that time breeders will propose that a not-yet-accepted breed me accepted as an "Experimental New Breed". Next step would be acceptance as a "Preliminary New Breed" and finally "Championship Breed".

Very unlikely the Napoleon will ever be accepted by any registry as it's combing the Persian or Exotic Shorthair with the Munchkin - a dwarf breed. Most Persian and Exotic…
