Pedigree Software Options for Mac Users

 

MacKitty

Despite an extensive search we are unable to find out whether or not this software was ever finished.  It was due for release in the late 90's but then the release date was delayed.  It promised to be finally be pedigree software specifically for the macintosh user.  If you have any additional info about this product please contact us so that we can share with eager mac using breeders.


Windows Emulation

If you are a cat breeding mac user you do have an option other than mac specific software when it comes to pedigree programs.  While most major players don't support a mac platform they do state that breeders have successfully used their applications on a machine that is running windows emulation.

An example is Virtual PC (http://www.apple.com/macosx/applications/virtualpc/)

What you can do if you have a windows emulator is to download the free demo version of your chosen software (if available) and then give it a good try before you purchase it.

If any breeders who have done this would like to share their experience we would for you to contact us.
