Excited Cats advocates for adopting before shopping, though we fully understand there are many reasons for seeking a breeder. So, we encourage it to be done the right way. We have not personally visited or investigated all of the breeders below. We have put the top-recommended all in one place for you to get in touch and make the best decision for you. .
The dignified and docile Persian kitten is well-known for being quiet and adorable. The cats might not be quick to scratch, but that doesn’t mean they will not become annoyed when bothered by noisy kids or pets. However, if you treat the Persian cat with the gentleness and dignity they deserve, you will get a friendly lap kitty that enjoys good cuddling.
Finding a Persian cat breeder can be difficult, but if you live in Connecticut, you can choose a breeder on this list, as each specializes in the breed and understands their character traits and how to care for the kittens.
4 Persian Kitten Breeders in Connecticut
1. Lilac Farms Custom Cattery
West Hartford, CT
Lilac Farms Custom Cattery specializes in the Persians and Fine Quality Himalayans. Lilac Farms is a non-caged, close cattery whose felines reside indoors only and practice the best healthcare standards. Lilac Farms foundation felines (the first cattery breeding) have been tested and found negative for Feline Leukemia, FIV, PKD, and Ringworm.
All their kittens and cats are vaccinated and seen regularly by a licensed vet, and each kitten is raised in their historic Connecticut Estate. Their kittens are kept with them until they are at least 15 weeks or 18 weeks. This extended stay produces the best type of kitty.
They sell all their kittens under contract with a very rigid spray and neuter agreement. All kittens who leave them will have a three-course Pyrantel treatment, which is a deworming medication.
2. 1st Towne Persians
Created in August 2015, 1st Towne Persians is a CFA registered cattery located in Historic Windsor, CT. The name 1st Towne was obtained because Windsor, CT, was the first town established in Connecticut.
In their cattery, 1st Towne Persians are dedicated to helping to improve the Persian breed and developing quality bi-color and solid Persians. Their cats are their family. They live in their home, not caged.
Before developing their own cattery, the owner spent many years furthering his education on Persian breeds, from health concerns related to Persians, proper grooming, and how to develop a cattery.
They reserve the right of refusal or cancellation for the sale of any kitten or cat at any time with no explanation before delivery. If a deposit has been paid, it will be refunded, and the contract canceled without further obligation to the buyer.
3. Vigo Cattery
Vigo Cattery has been raising Persian and Exotics shorthairs Cats for about ten years now. All their cats are registered with CFA and TICA. They have several Supreme champions and Grand champions.
Their breeding programs include Bi-Color and Solid Color Persians, and Exotic. Their kittens come in all colors, Black, Blue, Red, Brown Tabby, Parched Tabby, Tortoiseshell, and many more colors.
All their kittens are born and raised in a friendly and nurturing environment. Their kittens stay with the mother until there are at least 10 to 12 weeks. Vigo Cattery raises the best cats to ensure continuous improvement of their line, and their objective is to produce adorable, healthy standard Persian and Exotic kittens.
Their kittens always have an attractive, healthy coat that will likely be in show condition, even if you purchase a pet kitten.
4. FurEver Family
FurEver Family are home breeders of Persian Kittens and Pug Puppies with more than ten years of experience bringing fur babies to families.
They spend the first eight weeks preparing your newest family member for your adoption. Every kitten or pup always has a home with them if ever necessary. Their policy has always been to accept responsibility for every kitten or puppy they bring into the world.
Not everyone is entitled to one of their fur babies since they have the re-homing fee. Every candidate must successfully pass several phases of the interview and application process before re-homing is considered.
