Some of you may have noticed that the "Breed Profiles" sub-forum of Paw-Talk is currently missing. We, here at Paw-Talk, value the education of our members and have temporarily disabled this sub-forum in order to re-write it's entire contents! We are planning to add more in depth profiles, breed specific pictures, and links to the CFA and TICA breed standards.
Whereas I (Amber/RareBreedExotic) will be in charge of writing the profiles on the breed origins, temperament, and physical characteristics, I will need some help from the Paw-Talk members to make this forum a working masterpiece.
I am asking all breeders and owners of purebred kitties as well as domestics to submit either professional or home shots of their kitties so that we may post them as a reference for those who are researching the different breeds. I am in need of kitten pictures, as well as adult shots, and would like to also have a "color chart" for quick and easy reference to the different coat colors. If you have a variety of coat colors in your home or cattery, regardless of breed, please send me those pictures also! You do not need to include the entire cat, as long as the "pattern" can be clearly seen in the photo. When submitting your coat color or "pattern", also mention if the color or "pattern" is specific to a certain breed.
If you choose to submit a photo, your picture will appear at the beginning of the individual thread (example-"Exotic," "Rag doll," etc.) and will have the following photo credits:
- The kitty's title status (Grand Champion, Regional Winner, etc.)
- The kitty's full registered name (with cattery prefixes and suffixes)
- The kitty's registered breed
- Photo Permission Grantor (i.e.- photo courtesy of Amber Lea Morgan)
- Copyright Info/Only if the photo was taken professionally or you own the copyright (example-"copyright Puurfect Picture Studios")
If you would like your kitty featured in the "Breed Profiles" section and are willing to fill out a permission form, please click on the following link to submit your info:
Remember, as owners and breeders of purebred cats YOU are our best source for breed specific knowledge and your opinions and comments are greatly appreciated and valued. If you would like to share your breed specific knowledge, click the following link:
I promise to include everyone's thoughts and perspectives, and feel that the more people who participate, the better this section will become. Pictures will be added on a first come, first serve basis, but I will try and include as many pictures as possible for a better representation of each breed.
Thanks in advance to everyone and I hope to hear from you all soon!
