I Want a Persian

Persian Cat Rescue - Adopt A New Family Member

A Persian cat is a beautiful addition to any family. Their long hair makes them quite distinctive and beautiful. Their long hair also makes them need more maintenance than many other cat breeds.

The level of maintenance required for Persian cats can lead to some owners to neglecting or even abandoning these beautiful animals. As any animal lover would tell you it is always sad to find a neglected or abandoned animal. They need our help in giving them a loving home.

Finding a Jewel in the Snow

I was driving slowly up the dirt road to the cabin. I drove slowly because I had lost all four hubcaps off my old station wagon when they bounced off on that bad road. It was snowing hard and I heard a strange howling coming from out in the field. I stopped the car and rolled down the window. It sounded like it might be a cat, so I got out and walked in the direction of the sound.

Adopting/Rescuing Chia, an Adult Cat

Before my younger brother was born, I had a lovely long-haired grey smoke boy, Smokey. But shortly after my brother's birth, he became sick with congestion and cough. This lasted for almost a year until the doctor asked if we had any animals and then suggested maybe my brother was allergic to Smokey. My mother sent Smokey for a visit with relatives to test the situation, and my brother cleared up completely. Smokey returned; my brother was sick again.

Ginger Winger's Garden Tail

I had helped out at a Persian rescue which was closing down. We offered to home one of the old cats to add to our family of four rescue cats. However, our offer wasn't needed because Jenny had found homes for them all. But, "would we pick up a cat in Dorset that was going to be put down, unless she was collected by the week-end?"
