bulletValidity of certified pedigrees from other associations – discussion on whether we should establish a policy as to what we should accept given obvios inaccuracies from some registries.
bulletPK Deficiency – once again we discussed the current testing procedures and need to test our breeding cats.  Also discussed lack of information and need to educate ourselves on the problem. Historically we have not seen a lot of symptoms – this was confirmed by all breeders present – none of us had a cat diagnosed with any problems consistent with the deficiency.  Discussed the  danger of overreacting and limiting the genepool but also the the need to ideally breed for NN cats. All members are urged to forward test results to emau@emaucats.com for inclusion in a database tracking the status of breeding cats.
bulletBreed Council Secretary meeting with CFA Board – went over the agenda and determined that there were not any “hot” issues
bulletMember issues - none
