Persian Breeders in Canada

Before you start your search for a Persian breeder, be sure to only deal with good and reputable breeders. The last thing that you want to do is buy your kitten through a kitten mill or backyard breeder.

You don’t want to support these kinds of ethically suspect breeders. Additionally, your kitten will more than likely be traumatized and laden with medical issues.

Here are a couple of links that will enable you to search for Persian breeders in Canada.

How Much Does a Persian Cost?

How much a Persian will cost depends on several different factors: the breeder, the colouring of the cat, and whether your intention is to have your Persian as a pet or for show.

Persians with colours that do not conform to show standards tend to cost less, but you can expect to pay more if the Persian is a highly desired and rare colour.

Persians meant to be only pet cats can range from $850 up to $3,000, but you can expect to pay more than $3,000 for a show-quality kitten. If you’re looking to gain breeding rights of your new cat, this will cost even more, so you can expect to pay at least over $4,000.

Things to Ask a Persian Breeder

It’s important to make sure you’re dealing with a reputable and caring Persian breeder before purchasing a kitten. As you’re probably aware, there are many scams and morally corrupt breeders out there, so the following suggestions should help.

  • A good breeder will welcome all your questions. If the breeder you’re speaking to seems hostile or evasive over your questions, you need to avoid this person! A reputable breeder will answer all your questions and will ask you quite a few too.
  • Ask to meet the parents of the kittens if they are both available. At the very least, you should be able to meet the mother so you can check her health and appearance. You should ask about her lineage, diet, and when she was last checked by a vet.
  • Also, look at the living space for the mother and her kittens. Is everything well taken care of and hygienic? Has the breeder provided appropriate toys and blankets for the family?
  • Are the kittens free-range or in other words, being raised underfoot? This means plenty of exposure to different environments and interactions, which makes for ideal socialization.
  • Ask the breeder how long they have been breeding Persians and why they chose this breed. How familiar do they seem with the breed, and how passionate are they about Persians?
  • Lastly, expect the breeder to ask you plnety of questions. A good breeder doesn’t do this for the money but for the love of their cats. They want their kittens to go to good homes.

8 Things to Know Before Buying a Persian

  • You should find out from the breeder what comes home with one of their kittens and what to expect. Is there a health guarantee, vaccinations, or any registration with TICA, CFA, or the CCA? Will there be a kitten starter kit?
  • A reputable breeder will not rush you into your decision about their kittens. If the breeder seems to be pressuring you into making a decision, this could mean they aren’t a good breeder. This is a decision that will potentially affect the next 20 years of your life, so you need to take your time with it. The breeder should want to form a lifelong relationship with all the owners of their kittens.
  • Be sure to research the Persian cat before making any final decisions. This cat needs to be the right fit for you and your family.
  • Know about grooming! Persians are famous for their extraordinarily dense double coats. They require grooming at least three times a week or every day, depending on your cat’s coat.
  • When you’re combing that luxurious coat, you’ll need to be quite patient and diligent and ensure that there are never any mats. They also need their eyes frequently wiped, as this breed tends to have teary eyes.
  • Don’t expect much activity. These cats are laidback and quiet, and while they still enjoy playtime, they enjoy napping too. If you’re looking for an energetic cat, you’ll want to look elsewhere.
  • Breathing problems are common with the Persians, which is partly why they aren’t that active. Keep them cool and don’t allow for a great deal of overexertion. All of this should be kept in mind with this breed.
  • Persians are sweet and affectionate cats and prefer spending time with their families, so they don’t do well when left alone for too long. If you hope for a more independent breed, you should look elsewhere.
