Our kittens are loving, trusting, and very cuddly; raised in our hands and in our hearts.
I care very much about each kittens placement.
Kittens have their shots, and you will receive a vet release prior to shipping. My kittens are raised in a loving family environment, are handled daily, and unafraid of dogs. From time to time we do have retired breeders, and young adults that need a loving home, if you prefer a mature cat. His beautiful, flowing coat, sweet face and calm personality have combined to make him the most popular cat breed.He is high maintenance and he has some health issues, but for many his looks and personality overcome those drawbacks. Little is known about his early history, though. Both types have a long, glamorous coat that comes in many colors and patterns, and both share the same wonderful personality. He communicates with his expressive eyes and his soft, melodious voice. He loves to cuddle, but he’s also playful and curious. He’s not a jumper or climber, instead posing beautifully on a chair or sofa or playing with a favorite feather toy.
Persian cats are one of the most popular cat breeds in the world, placing 4 th in the Cat Fancier’s Association 2017 list of cats…
Persians prefer a serene, predictable environment, but they can be adaptable enough to weather a loud, boisterous family as long as their needs are understood and met. The long, flowing coat must be combed daily to prevent or remove mats and tangles. Introduce a kitten to bathing as soon as you bring him home so he will hopefully learn to accept it readily. Unlike more athletic cats, they prefer lounging on a sofa to scaling the heights of your bookcase or fireplace mantel. In general, just make sure children treat this cat with the gentle respect he deserves. He doesn’t mind spending time alone, but your presence will always make him happy. When you go on a trip, it may be better to have a pet sitter come in and care for him in his own familiar surroundings than to board him in a strange place. Any breeder who claims that her breed has no health or genetic problems is either lying or is not knowledgeable about the breed. Persians have hereditary health issues that can be a concern. Ask the breeder for proof that both of a kitten’s parents are free of kidney cysts, which can be detected on ultrasound. Cats can become completely blind by the time they are 15 weeks old. A study is under way to determine which gene causes the disease and to develop a genetic test to identify cats that are carriers of this disease. Persians should be healthy and vigorous, able to breathe normally and produce only normal amounts of tears. The coat must be groomed daily with a stainless steel comb to remove mats, tangles and loose hair. Mats and tangles can be painful to a cat, and loose hair gets all over your clothes and furniture, so you can see the benefit to spending the time needed to care for the coat. The drawback to the soft coat is that it tangles more easily and requires additional grooming time. Start this practice as soon as you get your kitten so hopefully he will come to look forward to it as a special part of spending time with you. Blow the coat dry (using the lowest heat setting to avoid burning the cat), combing as you go. To prevent ugly staining, wash or wipe his face daily, particularly beneath the eyes. Trim the nails as needed, and don’t forget to brush the teeth regularly with a vet-approved pet toothpaste. A reputable breeder will abide by a code of ethics that prohibits sales to pet stores and wholesalers and outlines the breeder’s responsibilities to their cats and to buyers. If you want a particular color or pattern, you may have to wait six months or more for the right kitten to be available. Many breeders won’t release kittens to new homes until they are between 12 and 16 weeks of age. Kittens are loads of fun, but they’re also a lot of work and can be destructive until they reach a more sedate adulthood.
They may end up in shelters or rescue groups through no fault of their own. Make sure you have a good contract with the seller, shelter or rescue group that spells out responsibilities on both sides. Persians might look prissy and aloof, but they’re actually considered to be one of the most low-maintenance —and friendliest—cat breeds. Breeders liked the aesthetic, and over the years they used selective breeding to taper down the cat’s silhouette. Persians with this feature have runny eyes, labored breathing, and often struggle to eat their food.
