Linda; 'Well, I can finally say I have successfully passed the course in Basic Cat Genetics!
Although I am in New Zealand, working with Renate Leijen has been great. She always got back to me promptly when I had a question and always explained everything well.

The only thing I found different was Classic Tabbies, as we call them in the Southern Hemisphere are called a Blotched Tabbies in the Northern Hemisphere.

I recommend this Course to fellow breeders and any one else wanting to learn about Basic
Cat Genetics.Thanks Renate!!'
