How Much Does a Persian Cat Cost?
When it comes to cost, Persian cats are not inexpensive and are on the higher end when it comes to exotic cat breeds.
A purebred Persian kitten can cost anywhere between $1,000 to $2,000, with some special or rarer varieties costing a lot more.
It’s possible you’ll find some Persians that are less expensive without a pedigree, so don’t be put off by that price tag.
What to Look for From a Cattery or Breeder
When looking for a Persian cat breeder, it is important you do your own due diligence.
Catteries that are accredited by The International Cat Association (TICA) or the Cat Fanciers Association (CFA) are a good place to start your search.
These associations have certain standards that breeders must adhere to in order to be accredited.
Additionally, it is always best to visit the cattery in person if possible. This will give you a chance to see how the cats are being raised and meet the breeder in person.
When visiting a cattery, pay attention to the cleanliness of the facilities and how the cats appear to be treated.
The breeder should also be able to answer any questions you have about their kittens and provide you with paperwork, such as registration documents and health records.
Make Sure You Read the Adoption Agreement Carefully
Once you’ve found a breeder you feel comfortable with, it’s time to talk about the adoption agreement.
This is a very important document, especially with rare or pedigree cats as it outlines the responsibilities of both the breeder and the adopter and safeguards you both.
It may also have some useful tips and info about how to care for your new kitten in the coming months.
Make sure you read it carefully and ask any questions you have before signing on the dotted line.
There Are Different Persian Cat Varieties
You should be aware that the classic Persian is the Doll-face Persian, and that there are actually a few different varieties of Persian cats.
The Doll-face Persian is the most popular type and has a more traditional “flat-faced” look.
But there is also the Peke-faced Persian, which has a slightly different facial structure.
Then there are also the Teacup Persians, which are smaller in size due to having been bred with other small cat breeds.
There are also Chinchilla and Exotic Shorthair varieties, which have different coat types.
So, when you are looking to adopt a Persian kitten, be sure to ask the breeder what type they have available.
This way you can make sure you are getting exactly what you want.
Are Persians Good Family Cats?
Persians make great family cats!
They are gentle, loving, and affectionate. They also get along well with other pets, so if you have a dog or another cat, they will likely get along just fine.
Of course, as with any pet, it is always best to introduce them slowly and supervised at first to make sure everyone gets along okay.
Persians are also relatively low-maintenance when it comes to grooming.
The only real drawback is that their long, thick fur does require daily brushing and combing to prevent knots and mats from forming.
But that’s more fun than it is a chore and other than that, they are a relatively easy breed to take care of.
