I don't know much about breeders, but I would think that feeding raw may be too expensive or too much of a hassle for them considering how much they have to shell out for their cats, vet bills, etc... it seems like a very difficult and time-consuming hobby, so I would think they would take the easier, more normal route with the food. Unless they are breeding wild hybrids. But these are just my assumptions.
My cat is on a raw diet and her diet has definitely contributed positively to many things... she smells good, her stool is very solid and does not stink at all, and her fur is soft and shiny. She looks healthy and strong and has a lot of energy.
But I think in the case of these purebreds, the softness and shininess of their fur probably has a lot to do with genetics. I would think that breeders try to select for these characteristics when breeding. Also they are super clean... they probably get bathed and brushed a ton for these shows!
