Your search for a quality, healthy Persian kitten!!!
If you are planning to buy a Persian kitten, it is very highly recommended that you find a very good and reputable breeder. Get evidence of your cat breeder before you trust your breeder. A good breeder is the one with many years of cat breeding experience and quality testimonials from clients. Also it helps to live in one of the states which require a cattery license and also as there are many cities which require a cattery license. Cattery license alone is not necessarily a proof that you have a good breeder. Many states unfortunately do not have a prerequisite of any sort of license; hence it is very difficult to find a list of breeders from these states. However, there are some ways you can find out if your cat breeder is a genuine person with years of cat breeding experience or not. One of the ways to find out would be if your breeder is telling you not to buy from another breeder simply because the other breeder lacks cattery license, then the breeder may be an unscrupulous breeder. Another lie of an unscrupulous Persian cat breeder is when a breeder tells you that all cats of a specific breed have a specific problem like ear mites or ringworm for example.
Choosing an authentic Persian cat is very easy as Persian cats are long-haired breed of cats which are characterized by their round face and short muzzle. Persian cat breeders carry out selective breeding which allows the development of a wide variety of coat colors and also creation of increasingly flat faced Persians. This is usually favored by fanciers, but this kind of structure of head can bring with it a host of health problems. A traditional Persian cat which is also known as Doll Face Persian, is essentially considered the original breed of Persian cat without the development of any extreme features. Some of the breeders have made efforts to preserve the older type of cat or in other words the traditional Persian breed which has a more pronounced muzzle as they are popular with the general public. The unpretentious and placid nature of the Persian cat shows a propensity towards apartment and home living.
Cat Fanciers Association Standards: Persian kitten
Also while searching for quality and healthy Persian kitten you should note the following; a pet quality Persian kitten is one which will make a great companion for any owner and is as cute and healthy as its littermates. A pet quality Persian kitten may have one or more physical characteristics, as defined by the CFA Persian breed standard that are not desirable in a show quality cat which could essentially mean that the Persian kitten does not have a “flat” face or some other of its popular traits. Prior to being placed in their new owner’s hands, Persian kittens should be spayed or neutered.
Searching for a Persian kitten for your home is not a task to take lightly as she will be with you for many years to come. Talk to groomers, other Persian cat owners, talk to breeders, but do not purchase a Persian kitten regardless of how cute she is, without doing your homework and researching the quality of the breeder. Do not get in a hurry. Do not rush. Research the breeders history and credentials to have a beautiful healthy Persian cat to enjoy.
