My gawd people are absolutely stupid.
I mean there are children dying in other countries ( as well as our own), there are thousands of pets dying in shelters, but lets make even a bigger buck and sell big cats!
And the fools that pay for them are no better.
I hate our world.

A BYB'er of "Lifestyle Pets" :yuck: :mad: :yell: :frustrated:
...but hey, they'll only sell 100 of them per year ~ now that makes them caring and responsible.

My God, that's ridiculous!! My neighbours once had a 32 lb kitty but he was overweight!! A cute moogie too - from the local shelter for maybe $40 or so! He prob ate too much Fancy Feast tho, lol

Just what we need - more designer anything!! Ugh!

I'm ashamed to admit it but I would love to have a cat like that. I disagree with the price tag and the means in which this cat was produced but I think it's amazing in a way :o

I feel the same way, Aimster, :o , I think it is a beautiful cat, but also feel that the money could go to better use too.

First, I think this company must have changed its name, Allerca was marketing a breed they called the Ashera (this is the same company creating so called hypoallergenic cats). They did get some bad press, so maybe that's why. Also, according to this article, the breed (really a Serval hybrid) may already exist, it's called the Savannah. The price should not be that high, that's ridiculous! And even if they sell 100 a year at this price, how are they making money? That's really not that much to support a business on, or maybe they are making a killing with the hypoallergenic cats. Or maybe it is a small company...

info on Savannahs, which are much less $$$, but still a lot ($3000-6000):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savannah_(cat) they are very striking cats, though.
