    There's actually a lot that goes into a new breed being established--DNA testing, being the expensive part of it.

Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”

If breeding is done correctly, there really isn't any profit from the litter, it's done for the love of the breed alone. That being said, breeding usually isn't done correctly, much to the detriment of the individual animals and the breed as a whole. Even when all goes well, it's still inbreeding--because that's how you isolate and perpetuate selected traits. Especially when those traits are recessive. The Lykoi cats are too new for us to know what their health problems will be, but I'm confident that they will show up.

    Dumpster kitties on the whole are hardier, healthier, and far more in need of help than any trendy new breed, so I agree with you that I'd prefer to rescue someone who really needs it rather than contribute to the problem.

    As with mutt dogs,and cats as well,mixed seems to promote better health and stamina,why I would prefer a Mutt. May also include human Mutts(I am a human Mutt)

    genetic diversity is generally a good thing...

    Its called hybrid vigor, or heterosis.
