Australian Mist, Maine Coon Breeder - Cats - VIC : Perfect Pets Profile

Truda Straede, creator of Australia's only home grown pedigree breed,the smooth and purry Australian Mist with a 'cat breeder's hobby' in the large and hairy, Maine Coon. Breeder for more than 35 years, author and Editor of many books on Australian Mist, and Editor of a much loved breeder's manual "Breeding Cats.... a practical guide" based on all that ( inevitable!!) experience.

For every litter I have bred since 1979, I have kept a litter card, recording: Sire & Dam: Name, Registration No, Colour, pattern, breed; any known genetic details: Mating & Birth Date: Number, Colour and Sex of each kitten: Notes on each kitten including birth order, weight, deaths, deformities, causes of death, illnesses, treatments. I now share some interesting observations and summaries which you can see on my website.

PLEASE NOTE: I do not advertise on other platforms - only here on Perfect Pets. If you see advertisements elsewhere using my photos, description, registered prefix, or breeder registration number, you are probably looking at potential imposters and scammers. If you have seen anything like this please contact me via Perfect Pets.

Breeder Questionnaire

Question. Do you health test in accordance with the current standards and recommended guidelines for your breed? Can you demonstrate your knowledge of any required DNA or other health related test results concerning your breed (if applicable).
Yes
MY MAINE COONS ARE DNA TESTED FOR THE TESTABLE HCM MUTATION, THE AUSTRALIAN MISTS ARE TESTED FREE OF ANY POTENTIAL DEFECTS FOR WHICH THERE IS A DNA TEST.
Question. Do you ensure that your kittens are appropriately socialised? Please provide details about how you raise your kittens to ensure that their environmental and social needs are met, that they are suitable as pets. And, do you ensure that the new family understands and is equipped to continue this socialisation?
Yes
Kittens are born in the house and brought up with home sounds and sights. As they grow older they have their own rooms in which to run around, where they are visited and played with - except the lucky litter which spends its time crawling all over me and my sitting room!!
Question. What written information about the conditions of sale, warranty, and information concerning the care and maintenance of the breed do you provide?
Yes
Have personalised agreement provided to each buyer based on the Victorian model agreement- and my website states what you can expect, up front, if you buy a kitten from me.
Question. Is ensuring that your kittens go to the right home a high priority? How do you ensure that the kitten will be a good fit, and be well cared for in its new home? Do you have a verbal or personal interview?
Yes
I interview potential buyers, and invite them to make a preliminary visit where we may ''inspect'' each other.
Question. Do you offer ongoing support? For example: Help with introducing a kitten to other animals; help with any health or behavioural problems that might occur.
Yes
Invite questions and feed back via phone and email, for life.
Question. In the long term, do you assist with re-homing a kitten or cat if for some reason the new family are unable to care for it?
Yes
Advise them how to place the cat themselves, if it is an unwilling surrender, or take the cat back and place it myself.
Question. Do you offer pet insurance?
