What a beautiful boy Nico was. His colour is like the softest toffee. HCM is a dreadful thing and afflicts many breeds and non purebred cats too. I know some breeders of cats susceptible to HCM get a scan done before breeding from a cat to show if there are any signs of existing HCM. I wonder if it is possible to do this with Ragdolls and reduce the incidence of HCM by not breeding from cats that have that condition?
Yes, there is a test for HCM in Ragdolls & Maine Coons ($60--$500). I wish all breeders would test!!
