At Cwtchycats we strongly believe in testing our breeding cats for everything available to us at the present time. We aim to breed top quality, healthy kittens and we firmly believe that this is currently the best way to ensure this.
ALL of our breeding Ragdolls have been genetically (DNA) tested and have tested normal for PKD as well as the known defective HCM gene (MYBCP3) and also for the known gene that causes HCM in Maine Coons. All of our British Longhair and shorthair breeding cats have been DNA tested for the known defective genes for PKD & PRA-pd, which can affect this breed. We have also had echocardiograms / ultrasounds performed by feline cardiologists on all of our breeding cats' hearts to ensure all is at it should be there.
We are very proud of this and happy to provide documentary evidence of this to any prospective kitten owners. This means that any kitten born to us will be free of these known defective genes as they are hereditary. We also regularly test for FelV & FiV and can confirm that we are an FiV, FelV negative 'closed' cattery.
