Cat Email Lists are a great source of information. Through a group email list, cat breeders from all over the world can come together to share their knowledge, ideas and passion for their cats.

In the article titled Cat Email Lists we discussed the advantages and disadvantages of belonging to the cat lists - from learning to being swamped with a barrage of emails.

We also discussed the basic lists you may want to belong to - from breed and health lists to specific areas of interest such as line-chasing and support groups.
