Are you familiar with the Flat Chest Kitten Syndrome? That a kitten's rib-cage turns flat at around 2-10 days of age? If not, you could learn more about this defect in Julia Craig-McFeely's article Flat Chest Kitten Syndrome, which is available in the PawAcademy.

Since all lines of a breed will sooner or later be mixed with each other, the genetic health problems are not yours or mine, but it is something we need to battle together. A way to do this is to work with health programmes. Did you know that PawPeds is working together with some breed clubs on Health Programmes in order to improve the genetic health of the cats?
