Persian cat Breed

The Persian cat is the Lord of Cats. Very elegant, aristocratic. It is an animal with history. It has a very special character and a look that has already seduced millions of people around the world; it might melt your heart sooner than you imagine. In addition, he is very sociable, but it is a type of sociability typical of his race.

As we know that you love it, we bring you a super post about the Persian cat, where you can find absolutely everything you need to know: its origin, character, health, behavior,… and much, much more. Do not miss it.

This article is very extensive, we have created it in order to have a complete guide on the Persian cat . In order to make it easier to read and so that you can archive it in your library we have put together an ebook in pdf format. Download it for free by clicking on the following link:

Origin of the Persian cat

 

It is not well known when the long-haired cats appeared. And it is that the only felines that had the gene that ensures that the fur is long are the lynx and the snow leopard, and as far as is known, the Felis catus has never crossed with either of them. What can be said for sure is that they appeared for the first time in what is now Iran (formerly Persia). From there the Italian Pietro Della Valle (1586-1652) took several cats that had long hair and brought them to Italy in 1620. Some years later, Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc, naturalist and scholar, brought cats from long hair from present-day Ankara (ancient Angora) in Turkey to France. Until now,it has not been possible to find out if all these cats were of the same breed.

Why does a cat have long hair in a climate as hot as some countries like Iran have? Surely you have ever wondered, since nature gives long hair to those animals that live in cold climates , with very intense frosts. Well, there are several theories:

  • One says that some ancestors of the Persian cat had long hairbecause they believe they were originally from Siberia. Later they were introduced in Asia, and later in Western Europe.
  • The second theory says that long hair was nothing more than a mutationthat happened to the short-haired cat that lived in the East. This gene could have been maintained thanks to domestication and the selection of cats to breed.
  • And the third believes that the phenotypic differences of Persians and domestics, that is, round face, wide ears, robust body, are related to Pallas’s cat . This is a wild cat that lives in Central Asia, it has relatively long hair, a flat face, round eyes and lowered ears.

While they are very different theories, they all point to places in Asia. But it was not there that the selection and breeding process began, but in England. In fact, it is the ‘second homeland’ of the Persian cat, as already in the 19th century these cats had many followers. At that time the characteristics of the long-haired Asian cat began to differ from those of the Persian cat . But it is very curious because only the blue cats were called ‘Persian’; even today what we call Persian, for them is a ‘long-haired’ cat. Each color variation corresponds to a different breed.

Since breeding began to date, there have seemed 150 variations . Many breeders, especially from the United States of America, spent time producing offspring with a more rounded head, a wider and more robust body, and a flatter snout. From 1920 until now they continue to breed them, although there are veterinarians who believe that a cat with these characteristics can have many problems breathing . Despite everything, in the USA and in many European countries, the ‘extreme Persian cats’, as they are called, are very popular.

The contemporary Persian cat has been the progenitor of the exotic cat . A short-haired breed that has all the features of the Persian except the length of its hair. This new breed was created in the United States in the 60s, and was recognized in 1984. With a semi-long coat, very shiny, it is, like the Persian, a very special cat.

But let’s not deviate 🙂. Let’s now see the classification of the Persian cat.

Classification

 

There are more than 100 varieties of Persian cats, so it is undoubtedly the breed with the greatest variety of colors (white, black, bicolor …). As there are so many, four groups have been made, so it is much easier to classify them. Each one of them is different from the rest, but all are determined according to the way in which these colors are distributed and according to the genes involved.

Thus, we have:

Monochrome

All Persian cats that only have a single color , whether solid or diluted, would enter here : black, blue, lilac, red, cream, chocolate, white, bicolor, tricolor.

Gen I

If your Persian cat has part of its hair depigmented, it is because it has the Inhibitor gene (gene I). According to the proportion of color, Persian cats are distinguished chinchillas ( shell ), shaded ( shaded ) or smoked ( smoke ). Thus we have:

Chinchillas

  • cameo: theyare white with red depigmentation
  • cream:that have cream-colored depigmentation
  • blue-cream:blue cat with cream-colored depigmentation

Shaded

  • golden:which are golden with a reddish background
  • silver:which are white, with silvery depigmentation

Smoked

  • tricolor:Persians that have a solid color background, but three different colors are clearly distinguished on the back and head.
  • black smoke tortie:these Persians have fur in different shades of gray and black. Their necks may be white.

Gen C

The C gene comes from Siamese cats, which also provides our protagonists with a stronger color density in their tail , ears , nose and legs .

Gen A

The Agouti gene (gene A) makes the cat’s wild markings visible . It can be combined with the previous genes. According to the color, seven divisions are distinguished:

  • Color points or colorpoint
  • Solid colors or solid division
  • Brindle or tabby
  • Bicoloror bicolor
  • Shaded and smoke, or shaded / smoke
  • Silver and gold, or silver / golden

Standard

 

According to the CFA (Cat Fanciers’ Association) we will know that we are dealing with a Persian cat if it shows these characteristics:

Head

The head, as we said, has to be round, with a wide skull . Its structure has to be smooth and soft, not too exaggerated. The face must also be round, placed on a neck that has to be short and wide. When viewed in profile, the chin, nose, and forehead appear to be in vertical alignment.

Chin

It has to be well developed , rounded and full .

Cheeks

They must be full, with the snout well fitted between them.

Eyes

The eyes should be large , bright in color , round . They will be far apart, but level.

Ears

They have to be small , with a rounded tip and a not too wide base . They should be leaning forward, set wide apart and in a low position.

Body

It must have low legs, a wide and deep chest. Robust , with good muscle tone.

Jaws

They have to be powerful and wide.

Legs

The front legs need to be straight, while the back legs will only be straight if viewed from the back. They also have to be wide and short .

Tail

If we talk about the tail, it will be short , but well proportioned.

Claws

Your toes (five on the front legs and 4 on the back) will be together . The claws will be large, firm and rounded.

Mantle

This stuffed animal must of course have long and thick hair that covers its entire body, including the tail. Its fine and shiny texture will make you not want to stop stroking it.

Disqualifications

To avoid confusion, the CFA considers that it will not be a Persian cat if it exhibits:

  • some deformity
  • moles or small spots
  • squinting eyes
  • weakness in the hindquarters
  • more or fewer fingers than you should have

CFA classification of the Persian cat

  • Head – 30 points
  • Body – 20 points
  • Mantle – 10 points
  • Balance – 5 points
  • Refinement – 5 points
  • Coat color – 20 points
  • Eye color – 10 points

Behavior / character

 

The personality or rather, felinity, of the Persian cat combines perfectly with that of those people who are calm. In fact, Persians are cats who love to spend hours and hours lying on the sofa , so much so that they are often known by such curious names as “leather furniture” or “sofa tigers.” Unfortunately, if you are looking for a feline that is active, the Persian will not be a very good choice, although of course it will also have moments when it wants to play and run around, but not as they will be as frequent as they are, for example, for a flare or a common European cat.

Persians are very intelligent, and they know well who takes care of them. They can come to love this person very much, who will not hesitate to ask for pampering and caresses … but without going overboard. If they start to feel very uncomfortable, they will let you know. How? Very easy: most of the time they will just leave, but when they feel that they are being harassed they can snort, throw their ears back and, if the harassment continues, they can scratch and / or bite. Therefore, it is very important that we leave them alone, let them be the ones who come to us and not the other way around .

For the rest, it is an ideal cat for people who live alone , also for those who are of advanced age, because although they need some care that we will see below, it is that responsibility that will make them feel useful, that they feel really alive. and dear. Something that, after all, we all need, especially after a certain age. Although the Persian cat can also make the perfect cat for families or younger couples, as long as they are looking for a furry companion who is calm by nature.

The Persian cat is like a stuffed animal that loves to control its own day-to-day life, and one of the few that will easily adapt to living indoors , be it in a flat, apartment or house. Because of their docile temperament, they are considered indoor-only cats, so you won’t need to worry about anything. Although, yes, that does not mean that we do not have to leave it at home, only with food, water and a bed. It is a cat, a living being, that will need other types of attention, otherwise it will get bored and can cause damage like any other cat.

But if he is well cared for, it will be difficult for you to hear him meow . Many do not even make a sound, except when they are scared or when they feel unwell. In addition, they are very intelligent, so much so that they will learn very quickly where they should go to relieve themselves, and where is the best place to take a nap (normally, it will be next to the person they trust the most). And, as if that were not enough, if tomorrow you are going to increase your cat family, they usually accept their new companion without problems , but it is still important that they leave little by little to avoid upset. To get them to become friends, you have to follow some socialization steps that will allow them to have a solid and lasting friendship relationship, they are the following:

How to get my Persian cat to get along with another cat

 

This precious Persian cat was caught when he yawned

First phase

The first thing we have to do, first of all, is introduce the new cat in the carrier and go home, where our Persian will surely be waiting for us. As soon as we open the door, it is highly advisable that we observe how both animals act: if one of them hisses and / or growls, we will immediately take the ‘new one’ to a room that we will have prepared for him with food, water, a bed and his own sand tray; otherwise, that is, if they are curious about each other, then we will leave the new cat still inside the carrier on the floorso they can smell each other. We will leave it for 5-10 minutes (we do not have to force the situation either) and we will take the new cat to the room. The next day, and for a week, we will repeat this same action every day, a couple of times until the new cat begins to show the desire to go out and be with the Persian cat, and until it feels more comfortable with its presence .

During this first phase it is normal that, although it seems that everything is going well, there is the occasional snort . But if the cats don’t stick their claws out, and they approach each other with curiosity, no problem.

Second stage

Once the two animals feel good about each other, we can encourage ourselves (we, yes 🙂) to put them together, without carriers in between. Of course, I recommend that you put them on both sides of a baby barrier for at least 2-3 days , in this way, both will have the same freedom of movement and will be able to do something that they will probably do a lot from now on: touch with their paws. And, the same, if there are no snorts or ‘aggressive’ behaviors, from the fourth day we can, now, remove the barrier and wait to see how they behave.

In this phase it is very important that we are calm , since otherwise the animals will notice and feel tense. If you find yourself feeling very nervous, have a lime or spend the previous 10 minutes doing breathing or relaxation exercises, or do something that calms you down. It may seem silly, a minor detail, but trust me, it works.

Third phase

In this third and final phase your two cats will have at least tolerated each other. It is time to start a normal life, with two beautiful furry friends Of course, from time to time you will see that they snort, or even put themselves on top of each other as if they were fighting, but these behaviors are normal. Plus, you ‘ll know they’ve gotten into trouble when:

  • Roll your ears back, or forwards
  • Show your teeth
  • Keep your gaze fixed on your ‘opponent’
  • They huff and / or growl
  • Keep the tail low, moving only the tip, or if you have it between the legs

If it were the case that one of the two was shown like this, it would be necessary to take it and move it away from the other cat , after which I would advise you to buy a Feliway brand diffuser. This product imitates feline pheromones, making them feel calmer and, therefore, calmer when they are with their furry companion.

The diffuser will be placed in the room where the family makes more life , but it is worth buying some more to put them in which cats spend a lot of time resting. So we will surely get them accepted.

Tips

You have to be very patient when you want a cat to get along with another furry one. They are very territorial animals that do not usually like much having to share their ‘domains’ with others. It will depend on the sociability of each cat that takes more or less time to accept the ‘new’. From my own experience I can tell you that rushing is not good, and neither is it forcing the situation. In the event that it is done, the only thing that we will achieve is that the cats not only do not get along, but also fight with everything that this implies (tense family environment, injuries, having to constantly watch them).

As I said, in this process it is essential to remain calm. Thus, it will be necessary that, before putting them together, even though we are in the first phase, we breathe, count to 10, and release the air little by little. If there is no effect, we repeat. The future friendship of our two cats depends, above all, on what mood we have when we are with them.

Hygiene and care

 

The Persian cat needs a series of care and attention to lead a full, happy life.

Hygiene

Hair

As he has long hair, it will be necessary to brush it at least once a day with a type of comb known as a card or, even better, with a FURminator, which is special for removing dead hair, very, very practical. During the warmer months, however, it will have to be brushed between 2 and 4 times a day, so not only will it stay a little cooler, but we will also prevent the house from getting too hairy 🙂.

Eyes

We must clean their eyes daily , since they tend to present lagazas and tearing. To do this, we will use feminine make-up removal cotton that we will moisten in warm water. Afterwards, we will clean the eyes carefully, and we will dry it with another cotton-dry.

Ears

We will clean them once a day with special wipes that you will find in veterinary clinics or in pet stores. It will be necessary to pass them only through the auditory pavilion , that is, through the outermost part of the ear; never inside.

Can you bathe?

Of course. The ideal is to get used to it from a young age , since it will take less time to get used to it, like this stuffed animal:

 

How to get used to the bathroom

To make the bath a pleasant moment for him, we will put a low tray with warm water (neither too cold nor too hot) inside the bathroom, and we will encourage him to come over with a piece of food that he loves. He’s sure to get close to you quickly, so when he does, give him plenty of pampering and his food as soon as he’s gotten close to the tray . At the moment, we will not bathe him, we just want him to associate the water tray with something positive.

For about 5-7 days, we will continue doing the same, and from the eighth day we will be able to take a little water from the tray and pour it carefully over it, like “the one who does not want the thing”. He may be surprised, or scared, but if he stays in the same place, let him compose himself from the shock and, when he has done it, give him a treat (cat treat, petting).

The next day we can start putting the cat in the bathtub , as long as we feel calm and we see that the furry one does not dislike being in the bathroom.

How to bathe him

Before putting it in the bathtub, we have to prepare everything we will need: shampoo and conditioner for cats , towel , dryer and then fill the bathtub with warm water (about 2-4cm). You got it? Then get to work:

  • We will rinse the cat well, except the face, holding it by the back (firm, but soft, without hurting it)
  • We will apply shampoo all over the body, doing a small massageuntil the foam is created.
  • We will clarify, removing all the remains.
  • We will apply conditioner, as we did with the shampoo, and we will let it act for a maximum of 2 minutes.
  • We will rinse for the last time, and we put it on a towel.
  • Will dry themgood hair with the dryer. By the way, it is highly recommended to use a professional one, since it allows us to manipulate the cat better. Another option is for one person to hold the cat, while another is in charge of drying its hair. Be very careful with the air temperature of the dryer: if it is too hot, we can harm the cat.
  • Once dry, we will comb it, starting from the neck area, passing through the neck and the body, until we reach the back.

Care

 

Like any other cat, we have to take care of it. This means that we have to provide you with everything you need to make your life with us as good as possible.

Feeding

We will start with the basics: food. You can give your cat three types of food: dry food, wet food (cans), or natural food. Let’s see the advantages and disadvantages of each of them:

I think dry

It is the type of food that is sold the most, because it is really comfortable for us. However, there are many brands and new ones appear from time to time, so it will depend on the money we want / can spend choosing one or the other. What I do advise is that you give it a good quality feed, as current and future health will largely depend on it. Thus, the feed that has a minimum of 70% meat and the rest vegetables will be the most suitable. These will keep the coat soft and shiny, healthy and strong teeth, in short, you will have a healthy cat.

The only downside is that they have very little humidity (less than 20%), and since cats don’t drink a lot of water, it doesn’t hurt to give them a can from time to time, especially in summer when they drink even less.

I think wet

The wet feed is one that has a minimum of 80% humidity. It is also quite comfortable, as you only have to open and serve. But they have a very important drawback and that is that we cannot leave the feeder full all day as it would attract flies, ants and any insects that may be around the house. In addition, the price is somewhat higher, so more is usually given as a reward.

I also recommend looking for a quality one , which has a high percentage of meat, so that the cat’s body remains healthy throughout its life.

Natural food

This type of food is the most suitable for all animals, including of course Persian cats. They can be given the meat of chicken thighs and other meats (always boneless), liver, heart, fish (without bones), and vegetables such as parsley or thyme. Before giving it, put it in a pot until the water starts to boil so that it cleans well.

Giving him natural food is more expensive than feeding him and requires more time to prepare, but what you spend on food … you save on veterinary expenses , so in the end it pays off.

Vaccinations

It is mandatory that you get the following vaccines so that your immune system remains strong to be able to face possible infections:

  • At 3 months:feline trivalent, which protects against viral rhinotrachetitis, panleukopenia and calcivirus.
  • At 4 months:against feline leukemia, and a second dose of trivalent.
  • At 5 months:third and last trivalent dose.
  • At 6 months:against rabies.
  • Once a year you will need to be vaccinated against rabies again.

Remember that before vaccinating it, it must be dewormed .

Persian cat deworming

There are several ways to deworm a cat: with pills, pipettes, with sprays or with natural remedies.

  • Pills:used to eliminate intestinal or external parasites. In the event that they are to eliminate or combat the worms, one must be given one every 3 months; and if they are for fleas and / or ticks, it will be one per month.
  • Pipettes: theyare very effective. They are applied to the back of the neck, right in the center, and it protects you against insects for a month.
  • Spray:the cat is sprayed with them, as many times a month as you want, taking care that it does not reach the eyes, ears or mouth.
  • Natural remedies:like giving him a bath with water and lemon, or adding a small spoonful of brewer’s yeast to his food, they will keep parasites away from your furry dog. In this article you have many more natural remedies to eliminate fleas in cats.

Other cares

The Persian cat is a furry cat that loves company. He will enjoy being by your side, either watching television or waiting for you to finish your tasks. In addition, he gets along very well with children, especially if they have a calm character. And, like any cat, there is nothing he likes more than paying attention to him and taking care of him as he deserves. Thus, it is important that:

  • Let’s put him alitter tray in a room where he cannot be disturbed , with clumping sand that does not make his paws dirty. I recommend the one that is sand (gravel type) that is mixed with betonite, or the one with silica. Its price is somewhat higher than that of other arenas, but having a single cat can give you 2-3 months, if not more.
  • As it has a flat face, it is very important that we give it a ball waterer(for rabbits). At first it is normal that you do not know how it works, so it will be up to us to teach you. You can pass him a piece of York ham for example so that he perceives the smell and wants to taste it.
  • We will buy you several bedsas it is more than likely that you do not want to sleep in only one. Thus, you can put one in the bedroom, a scraper with a bed in the living room, and another in the living room. And don’t forget the blankets to cover the sofa or armchairs.
  • Let’s spend some time each day (ten minutes about 3 times / day) to play with him, since although it is true that he is a rather sedentary cat, he needs to feel part of the family, he needs to have fun with us. In the market you will find countless toys for cats (balls, mice, stuffed animals …), but punch holes in a cardboard box and you will see how much fun it is, or encourage it to try to get a rope.
  • Whenever we see that he is not feeling too well, we must immediately take him to the vet.

Diseases and health problems

 

The Persian cat is a stuffed animal that unfortunately has diseases that we could classify as belonging to the breed. The selection and breeding of these felines have meant that we currently have to face a series of problems that can harm them. Let’s know what we have to abide by:

Problems due to the shape of your face

With a flattened face, with a pressed nose, your tear ducts continually secrete and stain the skin under your eyes, which can cause skin ulcers . In addition, the eyelashes and hair on the nose can rub their eyes, and their small nose can cause respiratory problems .

Bad bite, or malocclusion , is very common in these cats. Not to mention that, due to the altered shape of their head, females have difficulties giving birth.

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

This disease causes an enlargement of the left side of the heart , and can lead to the unexpected death of the animal. Between 9 and 10% of Persian cats suffer from it .

Oily seborrhea

It consists of having greasy and flaky skin .

Oculocutaneous albinism

Also called Chediak-Higashi syndrome, it is caused by a recessive gene that makes hair lighter than normal. It causes photophobia and a tendency to bleed.

Tear duct overflow

If your cat won’t stop crying, she likely has an overflowing tear duct .

Congenital hookworm

It occurs in blue Persian cats. It consists of the union of the two eyelids (lower and upper) by a membrane.

Urinary stones

What we all know as stones are very common in Persian cats, especially in obese ones. When they are too large, they must be removed by surgery.

Hip dysplasia

When the joint slips out of the socket, it causes problems walking .

Polycystic kidney disease

It affects more than a third of Persian cats. It consists of the appearance of multiple cysts in the kidneys , which cause an increase in them.

Patella luxation

May cause lameness .

Skin fold dermatitis (of the face)

Due to the overflowing tear duct, it is common for you to have dermatitis .

Hair balls

Since they have long hair, they need to be brushed often to reduce the risk of hairball problems. They can cause a lot of discomfort , such as constipation or vomiting and nausea. Proper brushing and a quality diet will largely prevent your Persian cat from swallowing an excessive amount of hair.

Curiosities of the Persian cat

 

Now that we know everything about the Persian cat, there is still something else I want to tell you: its curiosities.

Aristocratic past

To speak of the Persian cat is inevitably to speak of the aristocracy. Queen Victoria of England (1837-1901) was one of his great admirers. Today they occupy the first positions of the feline pedigree around the world.

About the fur

This is a cat that has always been related to royalty, and it has a longer and softer coat than other cat breeds . When you touch it, you immediately think that you have some cotton in your hands, and not a cat. But remember to brush it daily to keep it healthy and shiny.

Life expectancy

These cats live for about 20 years . Two decades of pampering, caresses and delicious food!

Is it indoor or outdoor?

Well, I don’t like to classify cats that way, because after all we are talking about animals that have been designed by nature to hunt. Now, from the Persian we could say, and we would not be mistaken, that it has been created by humans, so even though it still has the body of a cat, due to its flat face it could have many problems living outside . And in fact, I don’t think anyone would consider leaving their furry out of the house and having it on the couch, right? 🙂

The loot is … a Persian cat

European explorers brought from Persia (what is now Iran) food, spices, jewelry… and Persian cats as booty smuggled.

The famous cat

There are many celebrities who have a Persian as a furry friend. Among them, Kim Kardashian or Giorgio Armani .

They say they love compliments

To the point that they are even more affectionate . Is it true?

Beware of excesses

Especially after sterilization, you have to control what they eat well , because obesity is very dangerous in these cats, and can even cause fractures in their legs.

Persian cat »peke-face»

The peke-face is a variant of the Persian cat, which originated from a recessive gene. They have a very flat muzzle, and their nose is closer to their eyes, which can cause breathing or tearing problems .

Very small litters

Unlike other cats, which can have up to 10 young, Persians only have a maximum of 3 .

Sale / Prices of the Persian cat

 

If you are thinking of buying a Persian cat, we could not finish this guide without giving you some advice so that your purchase is the most successful.

Where to buy

Internet

At present you can find advertisements for the sale of cats of this breed on any page: Thousand Ads, Second Hand, cattery pages and also in specific forums. But how can I be sure they are not cheating on me?

Do you understand the language?

Well, the first thing is to check what language they speak. It may seem silly, but it is easy to meet people who simply write a text in their mother tongue, translate it with a translator, and put that text on web pages. Web translators are not exact, and they make quite a few mistakes. If that text seems to be, for example, in Spanish, but it has words that you don’t understand and they are written in the wrong order, be suspicious.

A purebred kitten is never free

This is important to keep in mind. When looking for a purebred cat, whatever it is, that is very young (between 2 and 4 months old), they will always want to sell it .

Contact information

The person selling animals must have included their contact details (at least, mobile phone number). If it is a kennel, it must also have specified the postal address , the zoo nucleus and the email .

Photos, the more the merrier

You, as a potential buyer, have every right to ask for how many photos and videos you want . If at any time you perceive some distrust on the part of the seller, find another one.

In too much of a hurry?

When a salesperson seems to be in too much of a rush, or when he wants to sell you a kitten less than 2 months old, be suspicious . A cat should never be separated from its mother so soon. It is much more advisable to wait until it is at least 8 weeks old, since that way both its mother and its siblings will have taught it the basics of being a cat.

Pet shops

In pet stores, they usually have cats of different breeds, and if they don’t have the one you’re looking for, they’ll order it. But what about these places? Well, sadly most of the animals sold here are the result of massive breeding from eastern countries. Mothers live in cages their entire lives, and only give birth over and over again. Kittens that come to the store alive tend to have many short and medium term health problems.

So, if you want to buy one in a store, ask the exact origin of the kitten . They should have no qualms about showing you the animal’s provenance papers.

Hatcheries

The Persian cat is one of the oldest breeds in the world, so you will surely find a cattery near you . However, it is worth visiting several to compare them.

A good cattery will have:

  • The facilities in good condition
  • Drinkers with fresh and clean water
  • Clean trough with food
  • Hygienic trays with clean sand, no bad odors
  • Well-groomed cats, with shiny fur and desire to play, healthy
  • The parents of the offspring will have registered with a pedigree association (CFA, TICA, WFC …)

And, of course, it will solve all the doubts you have while it lets you be with the puppies so that it is easier for you to choose one.

If you buy a cat from him, he will provide the pedigree with the owner transfer sheet when he gives it to you . In the event that you have not registered, they will not be able (only the breeders can) register your furry in any association.

 

Individuals

It does not usually happen, but from time to time there is an individual whose cat has raised and wants to sell the offspring. Well, it is as good a way as any to get a Persian cat, as long as he allows you to come to his house to see them, and does not give them less than two months old.

Health status of the young

Regardless of where you buy your Persian cat, it must show the typical puppy character , that is, it has to:

  • Be active
  • Wanting to play with his siblings and with his mother
  • Be curious about the people who visit you
  • Be in good health (white teeth, no traces of diarrhea or bad breath, open eyes, no lameness)
  • The coat must be brushed, without knots

Persian cat prices

Persian cat prices can vary quite a bit. In a pet store they can cost around 200 euros, but they give them to you without a pedigree and without any certificate confirming that it is purebred . Individuals tend to sell kittens for those prices too, so it is wise to think carefully about where you want to get your Persian from.

However, in a professional breeder, they will ask you 700 euros for one you want as a “pet”, which they will give you already sterilized, or 900 if you want it to reproduce it. It is much more expensive, but this way you make sure that you take home a healthy cat, with the pedigree papers and the tests if they have done any, and knowing the parents.

Adopt a Persian cat

 

It is not often that cats of this breed are abandoned, but in shelters and animal shelters you sometimes find them. These cats are now adults, who for one reason or another have ended up in these places. If you are looking for a friend forever and you do not mind that he does not have a pedigree, take a tour of the shelters or shelters in your area . It is very likely that a Persian cat is waiting for you.

So far this mega-guide to one of the most popular cat breeds: the Persian cat. We hope it has been useful to you and, if you dare to live with one of these furry ones, just congratulate you on the decision. You will take home a lovely animal 🙂
