2020-08-22: A new search system has been installed. When you search for cats in the pedigree databases you now have three choices: default, approximative, and substring. Default is the new, see the user guide for details on how it works. Approximative was the old standard search and substring also is the same as it used to be. If you liked the old one better you can select that as your choice in User Preferences.

The number of cats that can be handled by complete inbreeding has been increasd by 33 %. It is no longer possible to link to a pedigree with complete inbreeding. Old links will be directed to the normal pedigree page. The reason is to avoid unnecessary complete inbreeding calculations.

In case you have problems finding what you were looking for, please send the search string and a link to the cat you expected to find to so we can work on improving the new search function.

2020-07-15: Today we have moved www.pawpeds.com to a new server with more memory. This should give better response in our Pedigree databases.
