What does the breeder mean by the Status Codes and why is it important?
First lets explain the letters...
The only permissible outcross for the Highlander breed is a domestic cat which gives it the "P" in the code. If a Highlander is bred to any other breed of cat it will have a "N" instead of "P" which means non-permissible. Now breeders do bring in Highland Lynx (REFR) cats and register them as domestics to be used in the highlander program. This is acceptable because this is where the breed originally came from. Out crossing to a highland lynx produces a different quality of kittens than outcrossing to a domestic and therefore kittens produced from a highland lynx outcross are generally priced at SBT kitten prices.
Kittens that are the product of two different breeds are labeled as A.
A0P's, A1P's, A2P's, A3P's,
Kittens that have at least one grandparent of a different breed are labeled as B.
B0P's, B1P's, B2P's, B3P's
Kittens that have at least one great grandparent of a different breed are labeled as C's.
C0P's, C1P's, C2P's, C3P's
Now T and V codes are similar to A, B and C's... but T and V code cats are from foundation cats brought in when the breed was first established with TICA and have no domestic cat bred in since being registered or cats who have been signed off on by 3 judges stating the cat meets Highlander standards. Now that being said, it doesn't mean there wasn't domestic, Chausie, Abyssinian, Jungle Curl, ETC before it was registered as a Highlander. In the beginning, breeders didn't have to have a cat judged by 3 judges before registering it as a Highlander, as they do now. They were just registered as Highlanders with blank pedigree's. So a 01T/V would show blank spots for it's parents, a 02T/V would show blank spots for it's grandparents, and a 03T/V would show blank spots for it's great grand parents. The T stands for Traditional (SH or Short Hair) and the V stands for Variant (LH or Long Hair).
A SBT/SBV (Stud Book) kitten has no cats which are unknown, unregistered, or of another breed within a 3 generation pedigree. Both C0P and 03T/03V cats can produce SBT/SBV kittens.
What it means:
CE - Curled Ears
SE - Straight Ears
LT - Long Tail
NST - Natural Short Tail
HT - Hock Tail
NT - No Tail or Rumpy
DT - Docked or Cut Tail
SF - Straight Feet (Normal)
PF - Polydactyl Feet
SH - Short Hair
LH - Long Hair
Why are codes so important ?
The blood lines and pedigree show just how true to the breed your kitten is... You're buying a Highlander right? If you just wanted a domestic cat you could go into a local pound and get one. The price of your kitten should depend on how much domestic blood or unregistered blood is in it. Now, don't get me wrong, a domestic cat is a permissible outcross to help keep breeders from inbreeding but you shouldn't be over charged. I didn't know anything about pedigree's when I started out. I've had to learn as I go and hopefully sharing my knowledge has helped you. Ask the codes, ask who the parents are and who their parents are, before asking the price.
We do have a waiting list. Due to a number of people asking to be placed on our waiting list and then disappearing, in order to be placed on our waiting list it will now require a $50 deposit. You are more than welcome to watch our page with no money down but we will not personally update you and kittens will only be listed available after the families on the wait list pick their kittens. If you would like to be placed on our waiting list feel free to contact me.

All of our breeders are DNA tested though the wisdom panel. We have DNA tested more Highlanders than any other cattery and our results are public. Any kitten purchased with breeding rights comes to you already DNA tested! The results speak for themselves.
