Difference between ‘purebred’ and ‘pedigree’ infographic

Picture of Persian cat at the seaside near beach

Well, I thought I’d do an infographic on this common and slightly knotty topic. It comes up a lot and oftentimes people use the word ‘pedigree’ to mean ‘purebred’ and vice versa. And as you can see, in the infographic, they can be correct but it does not always follow that a purebred cat is also a pedigree cat. Please check out the infographic as to why. Comments are welcome. P.S. random-bred cats or moggies have not been selectively (artificially) bred to have the same parents and grandparents as they are created through natural selection. Although because sometimes they live on an island or are confined to a space, they can become purebred through natural inbreeding as mentioned for the Bahraini Dilmun in the infographic.
