ExcitedCats.com advocates for adopting before shopping. We understand there are many reasons for seeking a breeder, though, so we encourage it to be done the right way. Learn more.
Persian cats are gentle, quiet companions that prefer to lounge on the sofa than actively run around your home. They enjoy peaceful environments and are loving toward their owners and family members. The DollFace Persian, or traditional Persian, does not have a flat nose. Show Persians have flat noses and thick neck ruffs that are associated with this breed.
Whichever Persian you choose, you will be getting one of the most popular pedigreed cats in North America. If you’re looking to add a Persian kitten to your household in Indiana, we compiled a list to help you start your search.
Finding a Persian kitten from a responsible breeder will take a bit of research. To avoid purchasing from a kitten mill, always make sure the breeder whom you’re speaking to is willing to answer your questions and invite you to their property to see the kittens. You should be able to meet the parent cat or cats and notice if any of them seem sick or lethargic. Reputable breeders will sometimes have no kittens available, showing that they only breed selectively and responsibly. You’ll be invited to join a waitlist for future litters and may be able to put down a deposit for them.
Kittens should come with their first sets of age-appropriate vaccinations and deworming doses and should have been checked over by a veterinarian at least once. Some kittens may even be spayed and neutered, depending on their age and weight. Responsible breeders want to preserve the integrity of the breed. Kitten mills just want to make money. Knowing the difference will help ensure that you receive the healthiest kitten possible.
