Being a breeder is a continous learning process. My aim is to learn as much as possible about cats, their health and well-being (both physical and mental), breeding, and the abyssinian cat breed among other breeds. I work in close co-operation with experienced breeders from whom I have the privilege to learn. I have also mastered the G1 course of PawpedsAcademy and I am looking forward to continue to the next level, G2, which focuses even more on breeding and genetics of cats.
Summary of most relevant education:
Pawpeds G1 course, 10 weeks in September-October 2018
Course in cat breeding, January 2016
Suomen Kissaliitto, FIFe
Compulsory course to become a registered breeder with FIFe in Finland
In addition I update my knowledge in cat’s current health issues by participating in lectures and courses arranged by cat or breed associations, vet clinics or the University Vet Hospital.
