Hi, I'm not really sure where to ask this now that there is no breeders area so I guess I'll try it here. I was just wondering if the cost of an Exotic LH is more/less/ or about the same as an Exotic SH. Does anyone know?

I think it just depends on the breeder. Darla's breeder charged more for girls than boys, and more if you wanted to show/breed than for a pet. But didn't vary due to short or long hair. A different breeder I almost went through charged more for short hair because ELH (exotic long hair) is not showable in CFA. But didn't vary based on sex of the kitten.

Tosca's breeder varied the price according to how well a kitty seems to conform to the standard.  Sex had no bearing on the price (and kittens sold as pets had to be neutered/spayed).  Price also didn't vary for ELH and ESH as both are showable in CCA (Canadian Cat Association).  Tosca's breeder sometimes sells older kittens for less as well as retired breeders and show cats needing a forever home.

In Italy they make a lot of difference if the cat is suitable for expo or not. If is ok for that it could costs over 1.000 euro.

Then, excluding expo cats, cost depends only if you want pedigree or not.

Ermione costed me 500 euro, without pedigree Wink
