What is the "Genetics Plus" distinction?
- The distinction "Genetics Plus" refers to the deep knowledge of the breed and the line produced, in order to aim for a high standard of quality.
- It is a guarantee of animal welfare in the long term by the selection of breeders whose pedigree and ancestry are known.
- A program for the management of hereditary diseases or those likely to be found in the breeding is carefully developed according to the characteristics of the line.
To be eligible for this distinction, the Farm must:
Register all breeders and their descendants with a recognized feline association, such as the Chats Canada Cats (CCC) or the TICA (The international Cat Assiciation)
Set up for all breeding animals a screening program for hereditary diseases likely to affect the breed and / or a control program for conditions observed in the line in order to prevent their transmission to their descendants
