THERE HAS BEEN A CHANGE TO THE CODE OF ETHICS. Please see the 2017 document on the forms page. Changes are in red – in the Breeder’s Code of Ethics section. This change mainly focuses on microchipping of kittens and cats and the emphasis on the early desexing of kittens. Please ensure you read the document in its entirety and carefully to ensure you understand your responsibilities as a Cats Queensland Inc Registered Breeder.
There has been an addition to the CQI show rules to better explain the “PET ONLY” designation on pedigrees. Also, an additional show rule has been issued which relates to showing cats in companion classes that have previously been shown in the pedigree section. Both additions are in red.
PET ONLY – This means that the breeder DOES NOT want the kitten / cat to be shown at all, not even in companion class.
NTBTAE – This means the breeder has sold the kitten or cat entire, for breeding, but does not want the cat sold on as a breeding cat – the cat MUST BE DESEXED before being rehomed again. [Not To Be Transferred Again Entire]
SHOW / BREEDING – The kitten / cat has been sold for breeding and is also allowed to be shown. Breeders can shoose to select just one of those – Just for breeding or just for show.
FEMALE / MALE / ALTER FEMALE / ALTER MALE – Breeders. please select the correct sex description for the kittens you are registering. If they have been desexed already, please include the word ALTER after their sex designation. If they have not been desexed, then you cannot put alter.
