What I post i do based mostly on my own personal experiences. I had a female before marsh for many years, she had a horrible temperament, so i went through the ringer with her enough times in my life. If i knew how to perform an exorcism, i'd do it on her, it was THAT bad.
Marsh is a sweatheart, but i firmly believe it's because he came from a responsible breeder who breeds more for temperament and love, than for the beautiful cats - although marsh is definitely a looker
Our breeder held, kissed and worked on these babies since day one - she handpicks the mating couple and only breeds cats with the best temperament. She mixed LaPerms and Munchkins for maximum output - cats who are smart, sensitive, like dogs, who love you, follow you around and ultimately become lapcats. Who will never bite, scratch or injure you in any way. My breeder, when i was getting my cat, said that if i wanted a lapcat who'll be more laid back with less energy, i really should get a male, they're more mushy and will bond with you more closely
So NO, i didn't luck out, i just did my homework when getting a cat and paid to get it right
the second time around
When i hear that people get amazing cats from shelters, then i say "THEY" lucked out
