We are thinking about getting a cat and have 3 young kids. Our last pet was a non purebred cat and he had chronic bladder disease and was on meds for most of his life, never used his litter box 100% of the time and just didn't have the best life although he lived to be 17 years old. We are thinking about getting a purebred this time so the cat will be healthier. But is this true? Are purebreds healthier?
