    Ok We picked out Casper over 3 weeks ago. Since then she has gotten some fuzz on her face. The breeder knows I want to show so she has told me about one of the other girls who is better show quality. So she sent me some pics. My kids are upset and still want the one we initially picked(well she kind of picked us) But I actually have to agree with the breeder. So what do you think. I really think I have already made up my mind but need some back up The first set are the initial pick the last set are the breeder pick.

    I would take the breeders choice, but as they are the same color I wouldn't have told the kids, they would never have known :LOL:

      I agree take the breeders choice.
      Like I told you on the im Polar Bare was picked by his breeder not me..
      The one he told me about first turned out not to be show quality.
      I trusted Polars breeder and knew he would pick the best kitten for me.

        I agree with everyone else, go with the breeder's pick. If you want to show you need the best you can get..( I LOVE those kittens they are SOOO cute..)

          Tanya, the muzzle looks considerably better on the breeder pick kitten....the ear set too, I think. I'd go with breeder choice.

            Thanks Susi! She did say nose is a bit better on the other but she has a bot more fuzz. Just looking at her face she looks like the better pic!:Wink:

                Now I am not saying it's good to lie to your kids but... to the untrained eye these kittens look so much alike maybe they wouldn't even notice!:Wink:

                  There are some times when the only way is to lie, for example "No, there's no more chocolate left" :LOL::LOL::LOL:

                        I don't envy your choice but definitely best to go with the one that suits your purpose.

                          take the breeder pick, and send the other on to me! :LOL:

                          really, though, if you're new to showing, and you trust your breeder, always go with their guidance.
