Dear Ms. Tucker,

We are looking for a supplier of pedigree Persian cats and understand that you are a well respected breeder and supplier.

At the moment we have a client who would like one as quickly as possible, but unfortunately we are not able to source one of sufficient pedigree with our current suppliers.

Could you please let me know if you can meet this urgent request, and continue to supply us with Pedigree Persians in the future?

I would also appreciate if you can send me some information regarding breeding, cost, shipping cost, quarantine requirements, and any other information pertinent to a future relationship.

Thank you so much for your help.
