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.
