Questions should you ask a breeder with Persian cats for sale
Are you a registered breeder?
This question helps verify the legitimacy of the breeder. Reputable breeders are usually registered with official cat breeding organizations or associations, such as The South African Cat Council (SACC). Registration indicates that the breeder adheres to certain standards and ethics in their breeding practices.
Can I visit your cattery and meet the Persian cats for sale?
Visiting the cattery in person allows you to see the living conditions of the cats and kittens. It also gives you the opportunity to observe their behaviour and socialization. A responsible breeder will be open to such visits as they prioritize the well-being of their cats and want to ensure they go to loving homes.
What health testing do you perform on your breeding cats?
Responsible breeders conduct health testing on their breeding cats to ensure they are free from genetic disorders and diseases common to the breed. Common health tests for Persian cats may include screening for Feline Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). Knowing that health testing is done can provide reassurance about the health of the kittens.
Can you provide references from previous buyers?
Reputable breeders should have satisfied customers who can vouch for the quality of their cats and their overall experience with the breeder. Asking for references allows you to gain insight into the breeder’s reputation and the experiences of other cat owners who have purchased kittens from them.
At what age do you let the kittens go to their new homes?
Kittens should not be separated from their mother and littermates too early. The ideal age for kittens to go to their new homes is around 12 to 16 weeks. During this time, they learn important social and behavioural skills from their mother and siblings. Responsible breeders will not let kittens go to new homes before they are ready.
Do you provide a health guarantee for Persian cats for sale?
A health guarantee is a sign of a responsible breeder who stands behind the health and well-being of their kittens. It ensures that the kitten is free from any serious health issues at the time of purchase. Ask about the details of the health guarantee and what it covers. Before buying a Persian cat, research the cat breed to understand its needs. Persians require regular grooming because of their long flowing coats. They are indoor cats that love to be with their family, often following their owners everywhere they go. If you are willing to commit to a Persian cat’s grooming, health care, and attention needs, they can make wonderful pets and companions. However, it is important to consider these factors carefully before ensuring that a Persian cat is the right fit for you and your lifestyle.
