Munchkin Cats for sale TX

for sale: working kidney, gently used

If so (and I know that 99% of you nodded in affirmation of the above question), then shouldn’t it be yours to do with as you please, provided you harm no one else?

And if that’s the case, shouldn’t you be allowed to sell it, in parts or as a whole, to a willing buyer?

Robin watched a reason.tv video this morning concerning organ donations. In the U.S., we have a severe shortage of donor kidneys, and the Reason piece talked about the fact that it’s illegal for a donor to sell a kidney. You can donate one free of charge, but there’s a federal law against saying, “I’m willing to sell a kidney; please submit some bids.”

They also mentioned that the only country in the world where you can legally sell a kidney is Iran. And guess the only country in the world where there’s no waiting list for donor kidneys? That’s right…Iran again.

Now, I’m not suggesting we emulate the Iranians in any way, shape, or form, but why is it that their country is the only place in the world where self-ownership is taken to its logical conclusion when it comes to one’s own organs?

Here in the U.S., you can give away your kidney for free, but the second you receive a single cent for it in compensation, you’ve violated federal law. This is despite the fact that everyone else involved in the process is not working for free. Everyone is compensated properly: the surgeons who perform the transplant, the nurses who assist, certainly the recipient, and even the folks who mop the floor in the E.R. afterwards. Everyone is compensated…except the person actually providing the good in question.

How messed up is that, when you stop and think about it?

Part of the reason for this attitude is the insidious doctrine of altruism that has infested Western thought, the brainchild of Immanuel Kant. In short, it is held that an action is immoral when it benefits yourself, and moral when it benefits another. Therefore, if you want to give your kidney away to Joe Smith because he needs one, people will laud you as a selfless hero…but if you contact Joe Smith and negotiate a price for that kidney so you may have compensation for the surgery and the subsequent increased risk of health issues, you’re a selfish profiteer.

it's in the next town over, I stopped by a couple of weekends ago because I thought it was just a grooming parlor but then I saw a puppies for sale sign, and I thought oh boy... I went in and I asked the girl at the counter where they got their dogs and if they were all from reputable breeders and she said yes and that the owner, Carol, breeds the french bulldogs, English bulldogs, and munchkin and Napoleon cats herself (which I never heard of before) I don;t know they have "designer breeds" is this a puppy mill or BYB operation or what?

Where do i buy a munchkin cat?

In malaysia

Probably nowhere. They're a very new breed with few breeders and only recognized by TICA. Kittens START at around $1,200.

Why would you want to condone the breeding of dwarfism in cats?

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…
