Dear cat breeders,

My name is Ricarda Hackfort and I am a doctoral student in the Reproductive unit of the clinics - clinic of small animals at the university of veterinary medicine in Hanover. Participation is anonymous and the questionaire regards your cattery´s reproduction over the last 12 months.

The questionaire consists of two parts and the first part is about general information and contraceptive medication in your cattery that you will answer in the following.
Please choose the most suitable answers.

The second part will follow soon and is about mating, pregnancy, birth, litters and castration.

If you have any questions regarding this study or this questionaire please contact me by e-mail ricarda.hackfort@tiho-hannover.de.

The processing takes about 5-15 minutes.
