What I hate about pedigree software is that you have to enter every single cat in the pedigree sometimes. El Gato makes it somewhat easier in that some cats are already entered so automatically linked, but I have found overwhelmingly that most cats in my pedigrees are not. I just don't have the time of day to do all the data entry, much easier just to have the parents' pedigrees handy.
I agree...and since I do have Zuri's pedigree and can get Izzy's I'm sure, I feel comfortable with that.

I don't mind data entry- I figure if it's a good program, I enter it once and it's there forever. I just haven't splurged on the El Gato. Paige- if you are serious, let me know. I'll be a beta tester ;)

I know very few breeders who actually use cattery or pedigree software.
Guess we must know different breeders?

Or we have wildly differing views about the importance of pedigrees...as I think if one is selling a pedigreed animal (and usually that is why we are charging more than a shelter does for an unregistered cat lacking a pedigree) one should be able to supply that pedigree..

I never suggested that a person not provide a pedigree, that is a completely different topic from purchasing pedigree software and inputting all the needed data just so one can print their own pedigree rather than getting an official one from TICA.

I use El Gato, but it is only as good as the information that has been input.
True, any pedigree software that does not have an extensive database is going to have gaps. Another reason I tend to stick with the TICA pedigrees - I know they will be complete.
