APRIL 2019 Sad Events
Sadly over the years some breeders who have contributed so much and to the Australian Mist breed development have obtained breeding stock by deception and proceeded to manipulate less experienced breeders into their grasp, and done as they please to get what they want, working against Truda's dream,whilst bad mouthing others. This destruction of trust has resulted in loss of friendships, and has left some of us with a feeling of frustration and anger. We have to admit we are ashamed of the cat fancy and the despicable , devious and unethical behaviour of some individual breeders.
Whilst we are prepared to move forward and regroup , the damage that has been done by some breeders to the reputation of this beautiful breed of cat will be hard to forgive.
We do not expect people to take sides but we would ask that everyone evaluates the situation for themselves and decide whether to move forward and unite for the good of this breed.
There is never any good that comes out of deception , manipulation and nastiness.
As a result only reputable breeders will be featured and supported by Ayudamist Australian Mists
We hope 2020 brings better times.
