I am sorry but there is no way to get pedigree papers for a cat that didn't come from a breeder. They have papers on their cats and have to register the litter and then they give yout the papers to register the cat when the contract has been full filled.
How a good breeder gets their start is by showing in the Premiership Class at shows. The first talk to the breeders and learn all they can about the breed. The learn how to groom for a show what the judges are looking for in that breed. Showing in Premiership for a while till the mentor feels that you are ready to get your first breeding cat. You have to talk and make a lot of friends in that circle of breeders. Your first breeding cat can cost you up to $2000 for a female depending on the breed and the lines it is out of. male could cost more or the stud service could cost up to $2000. You will have to show the cat in the Championship class up to Champion and most likely to being a Grand Champion. This cost money, but you don't want to breed a cat of sub-standard, either. And that is where you start, dishing out money for shows and health testing and check up.
There is no way to start without proven pedigree cats, I am sorry. That may have bee foundation lines at one time but most of the outcross breeding is closed and you still would have to have a pedigree cat to do that with.
Now you can show you cat in House Hold pet class and that is alot of fun and you can win rosettes and prizes. You just have to have a healthy cat, not declawed and spayed/neutered and given a show bath and pay your entry fee.
