·       PK Deficiency - trying to establish a database that is verified and comprehensive. While we have had a number of cats test KK, we have had no symptomatic cats to date. We continue to track these cats, but would like to get sufficient numbers to take to UD Davis or Dr Lyons to discuss possibility that the test is not conclusive for our breed.  In the meantime, we urge all breeders to test before breeding.

·       Imports - number of successful registrations via the import policy

·       Registration by pedigree issues - ROR listed us as 5 generations, which is default, historically we have always been 3 generations. With current issues regarding registration by pedigree, Looking in to changing to the CFA default of five generations 

·       AOV - need to define and determine what how we want dilutes classified. Originally accepted under premise it was for tracking purposes, but not put in the system that way.
