are those cats who have earned the special status of "retiree," because
they have already done their fair share for the breeding program or for other
reasons such as being part of a "rescue" from an undesirable situation,
or just because we think they would be happier. Some of them are our own personal
pets; others might make an ideal pet for someone who is not looking for a kitten
to raise. All have been neutered or spayed and are expected only to enjoy life
to the fullest. .
