I went to an AKC certified breeder for Chelsea because I wanted to be sure she had papers and was healthy because I wanted to certify her to be able to visit the elderly and to lay by kids reading. Well, Covid interrupted that idea!! I've gotten cockers from reputable breeders and also backyard births....not breeders.
DH found Missy in the paper ads and we went to south Bakersfield and got her from a litter (backyard breeder) She has a shaking head tick that reasserts itself, but otherwise she is healthy and active.
Kara has two black cats...one just passed this last year (Bonkers, who passed, and Boo Boo), but both were loving and sweet. She had an orange cat and a cat that has had two unsuccessful pregnancies (both are with Erin in Monterey). She has a fluffy grey cat (Beethoven), a white with orange barely visible markings (Skitty), a beautiful multi=colored cat (Kat), and Simon, a Siamese. All of hers are found cats...either they found the cat abandoned or the cat came to them and didn't leave.
Love All Life, Thank You For Posting! :)
