"We" are a mother/daughter
team. Myself, Betty, and mother, Penny both equally contribute to the care and maintenance of the cats between both
households. In Summer ‘07, We obtained our darling baby sisters; CFA Torrents of Tropical Tsunami (black Persian)
and CFA Sweet Dreams of Precious Willow (shaded silver Persian.) This was one of the best Summers of our lives! We acquired
them as pets primarily, with the hopes to someday breed. As their personalities developed, their coats grew luscious, and
their outstanding health maintained- we knew that we would definitely want to provide people with the same loving, gorgeous,
healthy pets that we’ve grown extremely attached to. So we made the decision to acquire our charming male; CFA Captain
Crisco Of The Caribbean (copper-eyed white Persian) in late December, 2007. A few months later, after having done much
research and oogling over webpage after webpage of photos of the dreamy, fairy-tale little Napoleons, we decided
to acquire our very own standard Munchkin tom, Dunkin (black/white bicolor) to produce Napoleons of our own! Now, as
we expand our tiny cattery a bit further, we have purchased 2 exceptional extreme show quality Persians including
a Black tom and a Dilute Calico queen. We have since retired our lovely Crisco and Dunkin. Both have produced
some fantastic kittens with amazing personalities. Our newest tom, however, should give us even "squishier" faces that we
desire! We will still produce the best of both worlds; the old-style, traditional doll-faces as well as the show-quality,
flattened peke-faces or extremes. We also wish to perfect a look that isn't as chisled as the traditional, yet not as extreme
as the peke, for a softer doll-face. We are absolutely enthralled at the prospect of young from our new cats!
Firstly, we would
like to make it very clear that we have never been motivated by money. As any reputable breeder knows, very little, if any
money, is gained from a reputable, ethical breeding program. Our decision to breed our precious dolls was due to a lifelong
dream and facination with the raising and breeding of pets. I, as a child, never wanted anything more than to raise animals.
I started my hamstery at 8 years of age. Even when playing with my toys, my Barbies were dog breeders owning everything from
Dalmations to Chihuahuas and all of which had puppies! I even remember playing in my mom's nicknacks. She had this sheep candy
jar which opened, and I stuffed it with plastic baby sheep to pretend the sheep was pregnant! I've always been infatuated
with raising baby animals and have shared this passion with my mom. We have a true and sincere love for our animals, and while
we wouldn't be able to financially continue on with this hobby if we weren't able to gain anything back from our kittens,
we certainly do not breed for that reason. We believe in promoting our Persians and Napoleons as the wonderful breeds
that they are. Our Persians are both doll-faced, and extreme quality. While we breed our old-style line specifically
for slightly longer noses with a more open expression, we also have extreme lines of amazing pedigree which we are
incoorporating into our cattery. In both lines, we strive for ideal health, amazing, outgoing temperaments, and outstanding
looks; colors, coat, structure and faces. We are dedicated to producing lovely, healthy, charming, gorgeous quality kittens
to approved, carefully screened homes. We breed cats who seek out human affection, that purr continuously, and warm your
lap. We breed fabulous felines of wonderful, sound health. Lastly, we breed for amazing beauty. Our physical goals include:
thick, luxurious coats; large, well rounded eyes; short, cobby bodies; wonderful, enchanted faces; gorgeous heads; intense
colors and varieties in our Persians and Napoleons.
We are an extremely
small, home-based cattery (with only 4 breeding cats currently.) Our dedication is to house our “breeders”
in a loving, cageless environment, being underfoot in the home. We've been so, so lucky to have several intact
cats living in our homes- NONE of which have ever sprayed!! Our cats are our PETS, first and foremost. Their conditions
are kept clean and safe, and their environment is smoke-free. We are very grateful to state that we have NEVER
had any communicable health issues among our cats, ever- way before the Persians arrived, this includes being ear
mite, URI, herpes and fungus-free. We attribute this to our cleaning methods, our cats indoor-only status, the fact
that we vaccinate, and their stress-free living quarters. We are a closed cattery, non-negotiable. We take our cat's
health extremely seriously. Visitors are not allowed for safety purposes. All meetups are arranged at an off-site public location.
All of our Persians are CFA registered. Our breeders are also tested negative for Feline Leukemia and Feline
Immunodeficiency Virus prior to considering them for breeding. We also now test every Napoleon and Persian for PKD. Our
cats are vaccinated for Feline virus, Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia, Chlamydia, and Rabies. We try to keep our
cats as current as possible on their vaccines despite their indoor-only status. Our cats are maintained on a quality
dry diet with occasional canned/raw, and fresh water always available via automatic waterers/feeders throughout
our home. We diligently use flea preventatives (either Frontline Plus, Promeris, or Advantage.) We regularly deworm
with Praziquantel and Pyrantel Pamoate. We have several litter boxes filled with clean scoopable Fresh Step litter to
drastically reduce odor and stress to our beauties. We believe stimulus keeps kitties content! Therefore, we have 3 tier kitty-condos
which are carpeted allowing them to extend to their full body lengths and scratch. We also have random scratching posts,
kitty jungles and other fun cat furniture. We have countless toys, gadgets, and playthings always available. Lastly,
we smother all of our cats with love, coddling, kisses and baby voices! (Sorry, they're our babies, what can we say??) We're
constantly handling all of our beauties, individually, as this is one of the best ways to ensure a cooperative cat, which
may save their life. If a cat is not handled well and can't cooperate with a vet in an emergency, it could have devastating
effects on just how much care the vet is able to render. Our cats are comfortable and confident, loving, purring,
feeling safe and relaxed. We've never, ever encountered any aggressive behaviors with any of our cats no matter what the situation-
matt removal, bathing, medicating, brushing, nail trimming, ear cleaning, checking teeth, assisting in birth- the list can
go on and on, our heavenly gems patiently endure everything, usually with a purr. Our cats are our children and our LIVES.
We really hope you have gotten a sense of our TRUE compassion for our babies and just how much has been devoted into producing
the best possible quality kitten for you and your family.
Will Receive With Your DDC Kitten:
We take great pride
in the level of care, expense, and love we put into our kittens, cats and all of our pets, for that matter. Our kittens
will be socialized intensely, just as our adults are, while in our home. They will be exposed to other cats, our dogs,
the vacuum cleaner, and many other sights, sounds, and smells. They will have weekly nail trimmings from 4 weeks on, and at
least 2 baths prior to leaving. They will have a potty-patch cut prior to going into their new home (hair will be clipped
around the rectal area as kittens tend to have difficulty with hygiene at first and this helps to keep them as clean as possible.)
ALL of our dogs/cats as well as our kittens are fed a quality dry commercial diet- and we mix in raw food
at least weekly for optimum nutrition. Our kittens are obviously 100% litterbox trained. Your neutered or breeding CFA
Persian kitten will be sold with complete 6 generation pedigree information revealing the lineage of your kitten via copies
of CFA certified pedigrees (Our lines have several Champions/Grand Champions starting only a couple of generations back).
Kittens sold on neuter contract will NOT receive pedigrees until proof of neuter is received. You will receive a Kitten Kit
containing valuable coupons, information and samples, health record and more (depending upon availability). Your kitten will
have received regular high-quality dewormings at 2 week intervals from the age of 2 weeks (although queens are also dewormed
through gestation). Your kitten will also be current on FVRCPC/FeLV vaccines. Your kitten will also be already spayed or neutered
unless otherwise agreed upon. A health record will be provided documenting all dewormings, each vaccine, other pertinent information
as well as interesting birth notes about the queen's delivery revealing fun information such as the exact time your
kitten arrived into this world, which order it arrived, and much more (given we are present for the birth). Your kitten
will be available at the age of at least 12 weeks unless otherwise stated. All kittens go out on contract. We very happy
to inform you about the level of care, expense, and time we render to our kittens to ensure you will receive a properly
cared for, well adjusted pet. If you have any questions, please email us. To see comments from past buyers- visit our KITTENS
FOR SALE page.
If you have been doing
even minimal research on Persians, expecially doll-faced varieties, you may have noticed that many other catteries ask sometimes
up to $6,000 or higher for their Persians, and they are only sold with first vaccines leaving all other
expense (neutering, final shots, dewormings, etc) up to you. However, we think that these amazing creatures shouldn't
be available to only the rich and famous. Therefore, we start our pet Persian prices at $800-$1000 per kitten! Our non-standard
(regular-legged) Napoleon kittens start at $600+, while our standard (short-legged) Napoleon kittens start at $1,500+ up.
Some catteries price their Standard Napoleon kittens at $10,000!! We are devoted to always keeping our prices as reasonable
as feasibly possible in relation to expense/demand/competition. It must be noted that performing an ethical, responsible breeding
program is by no means inexpensive or money making! The expenses are endless. To name only a few; veterinary care, diet, record-keeping,
registrations, advertising, grooming, husbandry (toys, kitty furniture, quality litter, bowls, etc), cleaning (steaming, carpet
cleaning, products, odor neutralizers, etc), and many, many more! Our sweeties are our pride and our joy, raised
with tons of affection, love, care, attention, and cleanliness. Therefore, while we try to keep prices as cost-effective as
possible, we must take our mountains of expenses into account.
there are a lot of "Persian" kittens being sold out there for dirt cheap prices, many at $350-$500 in this area, and some
even $100-$150!! This seems to be a dream come true for Persian buyers. Sadly, the old addage "You get what you
pay for" really applies the majority of the time! These kittens are usually of questionable decent, very rarely pedigreed
or even registered (usually they are mixed breeds.) They may also be ill or falsely advertised. A relative of ours thought
she was getting a great deal on her persian girl for $50, although upon grooming her found out she was a male! He also has
chronic diarrhea. Beware of these "low cost" persians. An ethical breeder would not be able to continue with a high-quality
breeding program by selling kittens for these shelter fees unless they were not investing any money into the kittens or their
parents, which sadly is usually the case.
A responsible breeder
cares about the kitten for the LIFE of him/her. Therefore, placing that kitten into a home that can't even afford the initial
purchase is NOT rational. The purchase of the kitten is only a fraction of the expenses that will ensue. If a home is
unable to afford the kitten's purchase price, they certainly can't afford the kitten.
We now offer shipping!
We've experienced 2 very successful shipments of our dolls and decided if the process was tolerable and pleasant
for all parties involved (especially the kitty!) that we would offer shipping in the future for our Darling Dolls. We ship
using Delta Comair via cargo PetFirst flight out of Bangor, ME. Shipping costs for young kittens is expected to be approximately $350
(actual price will be given upon request), and $400+ for older kittens/adults. Standard shipping package includes crate, food
cups, piddle pads in the crate, health certificate w/acclimation report when necessary and everything listed above. We also
offer a "Deluxe" shipping package for an additional $50 which includes everything above plus additional extra-comfy items in
an effort to further reduce stress to your kitten during his/her trip. Some extra items included in this package are
a spray of Feliway calming pheremone in the carrier, a cuddly baby blanket and stuffed toy for cuddling up
to with scents from mom and siblings, soft toys for travel, a cat-nip pillow and other comforting items based on
We may be offering our Eclipse for studding to approved females.
