Meet the Persian

Persians are medium-sized cats that usually weigh between 7 and 12 pounds when fully grown. However, they often look heavier than they feel, thanks to their long, thick coat. Their silky fur is one of the Persians most distinctive features and gives them their sophisticated look.

Their hair is long all over the body, with a ruff at the neck and a bushy tail. Cream and silver are the most common shades, but Persians can be a range of colours, including silver, red, brown, blue, and cameo. In addition, they can have a solid colouring or different patterns, such as shaded, smoke, tabby, and calico. Therefore, each Persian tends to be aesthetically unique.

The Persian’s other distinctive feature is their round head with a short nose, small ears and full cheeks. Moreover, some Persians, known as Peke-face Persians, have an extremely flat face, which was first due to a spontaneous mutation. This version is now selectively bred alongside transitional Persians; however, the flat face types are often prone to breathing problems and other serious health issues. Therefore, when looking for a Persian kitten, we recommend choosing the traditional kind.

Persians have a sturdy, muscular body with short, thick legs and large round paws. Their eye colour varies and often depends on their coat colour, but copper and blue are the most common.

The temperament of a Persian cat

Persians are gentle, docile, and incredibly sweet. They are one of the most discreet breeds as they do not tend to vocalise their wants and needs as some other breeds do. They have low energy and prefer napping instead of playing.

They love when their owners settle down on the sofa to watch a movie, as this signals snuggle time for them. Moreover, there’s not much point in buying a fancy cat bed for your Persian as they will claim your lap as their bed or sleep on something that smells of you while you are away.

Despite their love for human affection, they are not needy like other breeds. They won’t demand your attention if you are busy, but instead, they will patiently wait for you. Thanks to this laid back personality, Persian cats do fine when left alone.

Plus, they are happy to spend the day lazing around, so they do not care for or need regular play sessions. They are low maintenance and have simple needs. They might play with their toys sometimes, but they are unlikely to climb your bookshelf or jump on top of the fridge.

10 Reasons to add a Persian cat to your family

  1. They are super gentle - Persian cats don’t have a vicious bone in their body and never act aggressively towards humans or other pets.
  2. They have low play needs - A Persian is happy to nap and laze around, so you don’t need to spend much time playing with them or keeping their minds engaged.
  3. They won’t wreak havoc in your house - Persians are not known jumpers or climbers, so they won’t go around knocking things off shelves or ripping up your curtains.
  4. They are discreet - A Persian will not wake you in the middle of the night with their meow or loudly cry until you feed them. The noises they make are quiet, and they use their eyes to communicate with you more than their mouth.
  5. They create a tranquil ambience - If you’re someone who appreciates peace and quiet and you like to live in a harmonious environment, a Persian cat will make the perfect pet for you.
  6. They come in various colours - Although cream is the most common shade, you can find Persians in many different colours and shades.
  7. They are luxurious - If you like the finer things in life, a Persian is a perfect breed for you. They will add a touch of glamour and style to any home.
  8. They have a super cute face - Their doll-like face is so cute that you’ll have to restrain yourself from squeezing their cheeks out of adoration.
  9. They have been around for centuries - Persians have a long history and were viewed as highly valuable pets when they first came to Europe.
  10. They also make beautiful cross breeds - Persians have been successfully crossed with other pedigrees, such as Siamese and American Shorthair.

Best homes for a Persian cat

A Persian cat needs a quiet, serene environment to call home, so they make a great companion for older couples or someone who lives alone. Moreover, it is not wise to get a Persian cat if you have many young children around or your house is high-energy, with lots of people coming and going. This will be highly stressful for your Persian, and they may resort to hiding anxiously under the bed.

Although Persians are friendly towards people, they reserve their love and affection for their owner and are not fond of strangers. Furthermore, Persians can coexist with other pets, depending on their personality. Of course, a Persian will not do well with a playful puppy or a high energy Bengal. Still, it can be nice to get another gentle cat such as a Ragdoll to keep your Persian company while you’re at work.

Persian cats are very docile, so they will never initiate a fight with another animal. Moreover, they can easily get intimidated by dogs and more confident cats. So, if you already have other pets at home, consider if a Persian would mix well with them.

Frequently Asked Questions About Persian Kittens

Why should I choose a Persian kitten from The Pedigree Paws rather than elsewhere?
Although kitten mills are illegal in Great Britain, some unethical and unlicensed breeders are still in operation. It’s our mission to fight pet farms and dishonourable breeders, so we support only moral, licensed breeders that demonstrate the best care towards their animals. All our partner breeders treat each kitten as their own, ensuring they are as healthy and happy as possible. Therefore, you know when choosing a Persian kitten from The Pedigree Paws, you’ll receive a well-developed, fully healthy pet.
Is a Persian the right kitten for me?
Persians are one of the most gentle, loving breeds and have a very calm temperament and docile nature. They do not have high energy levels and prefer a chilled lifestyle in a quiet environment where they can spend the day napping and cuddling with their owner. So, if your home is peaceful and relaxed, a Persian kitten will be a great fit. Persians love people but dislike crowds, strangers, or noisy children, so they can be an ideal companion to someone who lives alone.
Is The Pedigree Paws trustworthy?
We know that not all breeders and agencies are trustworthy. However, at The Pedigrees Paws, we prioritise building assurance with our clients by operating transparently and ethically at all times. We're pleased to say that this approach has led to hundreds of previous happy customers. Our testimonials and success stories of our previous customers reflect this. One of the most important actions we take is to ensure all our breeders are licensed and ethical before allowing them to advertise their kittens. This filters out scammers and illegal pet farms and gives you the assurance that you’ll receive a healthy Persian kitten through The Pedigree Paws.
Are Persian kittens from The Pedigree Paws healthy?
Yes, all our Persian kittens are 100% healthy as we only work with breeders who follow the strictest health protocols. This means that every Persian kitten we list on our website has had a thorough health check. What’s more, we run DNA checks on the kitten’s parents to ensure they do not have any genetic mutations that they may have passed down. In addition, your Persian kitten will be dewormed, microchipped, and have all their vaccinations complete before coming to you.
How long do I have to wait to get my new Persian kitten?
Persian kittens, like all breeds, need to stay with their mothers until they are fully weaned, which is usually around 8 weeks old. However, for their wellbeing, it’s best that they stay together for a few more weeks, until they are 10-13 weeks old. However, we allow breeders to set their own timescale within this range, so you can find out when your kitten will be ready by contacting the breeder.
Can I see the parents of a Persian kitten before purchase?
Yes, it’s always a good idea to see your new Persian kitten’s parents and check that they look in good health before making the deposit. Seeing the parents for yourself will assure you that your Persian kitten will arrive in top condition. As a fully transparent and trustworthy company, we will set up a virtual meeting for you and the breeder where you can see one or both parents.
Will I receive the pedigree documents of my new Persian kitten?
Yes, you will receive your new Persian kitten along with an official pedigree document from a top pedigree organisation, such as GCCF, TICA and FIFe. This proves that your kitten is an authentic Siamese and is recognized worldwide.
Do your Persian kittens come from good breeders?
Our Persian kittens come from the very best breeders in the industry that continuously adhere to the animal welfare policies of renowned international breeding organisations. Additionally, we have extensive in-house breeder requirements to ensure that we are working with the most ethical breeders around. For example, all breeders on our site see their animals like sentient beings and treat them like so. This makes a huge difference to the wellbeing of the kittens and ensures your Persian kitten will grow into a gentle, loving, easy-going companion.
Are your Persian kittens raised in a family home or breeding facility?
We strongly feel that the only ethical way to breed kittens is to raise them in a family environment with their mother until at least 8 weeks of age. Therefore, we do not support commercial breeding facilities as they do not raise kittens in this manner. The main priority of these facilities is to make money, and this shows in the way they keep kittens, usually in cages alone. However, we know that kittens will always thrive when they spend the first 2 months of their life with their mother and siblings in a family home. This allows them to develop well, socialise to other animals and humans, and become more confident and adaptable, too.
How can I help my Persian kitten adjust to its new home?
Persians love humans but can sometimes be a bit wary of new people. Moreover, as they are not the most confident breed, they can take a little longer to adjust to a new environment than other kittens. Because of this, we recommend making the transition as easy as possible for them. One thing you can do is get the breeder to send you a towel or blanket containing the mother’s scent. This is because cats give off feline pheromones that kittens find to be calming. When your kitten arrives, keep them in one room with you for a day or two before letting them explore. Also, avoid introducing your new Persian to more than a few people, and no young children, until they have settled.
