That most definitely a horrible idea, why would you even consider it?

We are possibley getting a female kitten that has extra toes. I was considering breeding her with our male kitty later on down the road. I wasn't sure how the whole genetic pool worked with cats. If the offspring could be breed with the Dad later on down the road, not that I would, I guess I was just curious.

The 'whole genetic pool' thing works the same with all living things.. it would be the same if it was a person.. his daughter would be.. well his daughter.. yuck.

Besides, why would you want to breed your cat when theres already so many kittens in shelters?

I agree.

Definatly don't breed a father to a daughter...and research breeding/genes big time.But I also suggest you look into spaying/neutering and the pet overpopulation problems...which mainly involve cats and dogs!

I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea here. I am a very responsible pet owner, all my animals have been fixed. At this time I am not planning on breeding any cats. I was just curious.

Not again! First of all, there are too many kittens in the world to be breeding to see if you can get another kitten that has extra toes for an experiement. I am glad to see that you have reconsidered. We welcome you to Paw Talk, but also need to caution you that comments or posts like the one that you made can upset all kinds of people right off the bat. I can only speak for myself here, but have seen it in the past, I think that the forum believes in taking care of animals and not reproducing them for experiments or fun and not too many people will answer posts too kindly when these ideas are posted. Again, please do not take this as an "angry" post towards you, just a few words of wisdom from me from what I have seen. We want a "happy" forum here. It's a great place to post and a bunch of friendly people from whom you can get alot of help from. Enjoy! And keep up the good work with the spaying and neutering!

The inbreeding % should never get over 10%.
But if you have the genetic material, you don't need to inbreed.

IF you want/need to inbreed, you need to be very experienced, and know the lines of your animals very well...

Some people use the argument "inbreeding will double all the positives". This is correct, but it will do the same with all the negatives, and this means a great risk of lethal deceases!

Leave the inbreeding to professionels like zoos, who know what they are doing, and are doing it to save some species
