Okay, I'll admit I know little about what constitutes a responsible breeder with cats, I've got a lot more experience with dogs! I've had a breeder contact me that has a beautiful female retired breeder she wants to re-home that I'm thinking about. However I need to make sure that I'm NOT supporting a BYB in any way! The cat is spayed and microchipped, what other questions should I make sure I ask, and what should I look for? She's asking $400 for her, which I realize isn't a bad price for a sphynx, and if she where in a rescue I would pay that without a second thought, but from a breeder? I don't want to walk away feeling like I helped that breeder make her last few dollars at the cat's expense! If I'm going to accept a cat from a breeder, I want to be as indepth as possible in my screening of them, and really make sure they know their stuff and are doing their part to better the breed, not just added to the pet overpopulation problem!
