WE ARE PROUD TO BE A
CFA REGISTERED CATTERY!
WATCH IN THE FALL FOR OUR
WE ARE ANXIOUSLY WAITING FOR THESE LITTLE ONES.
I’LL BE CALLING EVERYONE WHO’S HELPED ME OUT!!
When I purchased
my first Persian,
I had many questions about introducing her to my home and my children.
BELIEVE ME I HAD LOTS OF QUESTIONS!!
I would like to share 6 “personal insights”
that I have learned from experienced breeders and friends.
WHAT ARE THE ESSENTIAL ITEMS THAT I WILL NEED TO HAVE
OR FIND FOR MY KITTEN?
A MENTORA LICENSED VETERINARIAN
WHY DOES MY CAT HIDE AND WILL SHE EVER COME OUT?
My first Persian,
found some great hiding places that I didn’t know even existed in my home!!
I have come to find out that this in NORMAL.
It’s important to leave your cat alone and let her explore on her own.
DON’T FORCE HER TO COME OUT FROM HIDING.
She will eventually come out and you will be able to enjoy every bit of her!
HOW SHOULD I INTRODUCE MY KITTEN TO MY CHILDREN?
(I’m talking about a kitten who is 12 weeks or older)
It’s best not to
force a kitten to sit or be held by a child.
I have taught my children to sit on the floor and play with my kittens using a toy.
They SHOULDN’T carry a kitten or run after a kitten either.
My kittens DO LOVE my children and have and do give lots of love to each other!!!
HOW CAN I GET MY KITTEN TO USE ITS SCRATCHING POST?
I have GENTLY
placed my kittens paws on the scratching post
and have stroked her paws on the post in a downward motion.
I do this several times a day for the first week.
This will leave oil on the post from the paws of the kitten.
You can also use some catnip spray and spray in on the post to attract the kitten.
Believe me, they will go back and scratch.
MY KITTEN SEEMS SO NERVOUS AND SCARED?
WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP CALM HER NERVES AND EASE HER STRESS?
I personally would
like to recommend a product called
RESCUE REMEDY by BACH.
It is an all natural product that can be found in most Health Stores.
As stated from their pamphlet, “Pets Have Emotions Too”,
Rescue Remedy can be used for an immediate calming effect in any stressful situation”.

Bach Flower Remedies for Animals by Stefan Ball and Judy Howard.
I HAVE SO MUCH TO LEARN!
WHERE CAN I START READING INFORMATION TO HELP ME AS AN OWNER OR A BREEDER?
I have found that
have some great articles about everything that you have ever wanted to know
regarding having or raising a Persian!!!
They also have some great articles about PKD that all owners of Persians should read.
