The domain name was registered by Ulrika Olsson in 2000, for future use as a site for information about the history of the pedigree cats, and to educate cat breeders about the need for genetic variation and what the situation is in their breed. In order to do this, we are publishing databases with pedigree information for different breeds, with functions for calculations of the inbreeding coŽfficiŽnt and pedigree analyses. We also publish articles related to these topics. Along the way, we will add articles about other health issues and breeding issues as well, for the education of breeders.


The PawPeds PawAcademy basic course is in three steps about cat care and cat breeding. General course step 1, or G1 for short, is mainly about cat ownership. It is basically for beginners, but also for more experienced breeders who later want to take the higher courses.

Step 2 of the general course, G2, is mainly about having a litter but also includes basic genetics and breeding plans.

Step 3, G3, is more in depth about selective breeding, genetics, physiology, cat food, behavior, etc. This is for breeders who have had a few litters already and have taken step 1 and 2 of the general course.

Apart from the general courses we also plan to set up breed specific courses eventually, as well as some other types of courses. But first we will focus on the three steps of the general course.

G1, G2 and G3.
