When I am breeding cats, is it okay to breed a half brother to its half sister?


Answer by  Cerco (43)

Breeding animals (or humans for that matter) that are related to eachother is technically ok, but in doing so, you increase the likely-hood of showing recessive genes in offspring.

Genetical it is not okay. In humans if cousins have children they tend to have genetic disorders, and diseases. However, it is done.

No, you should not breed half-sibling cats with each other. Doing so may produce sickly kittens with severe deformities.


Answer by  xLeopardblazex (12)

Breeding siblings, even half siblings, can result in deformities and illnesses later in life. Usually it is best to not breed related cats.

No, it is never healthy for the animals to breed them within their own blood line, even if it's only half. The kittens may be retarded/mutated.
