Breeders 101
It is very important to do some homework before deciding on a breeder. If possible, you should visit the cattery to see first hand the enviroment in which the cats are being raised. You will want to observe whether the cats are kept in the home or in cages. Find out how long he/she has been breeding Persians and if you can meet the kitten's mother and father. Do not be afraid to ask the breeder lots of questions - they should have plenty of questions for you, too.

Show Checklist

Here is a handy checklist of items you will need when you attend a show.


Benching Cages

Benching Cage

At the show hall, your Persian needs a place to be kept and displayed in between judgings. The benching cage is where your cat will spend most of his/her time at the show. So it's important that the benching cage contains items that will make your cat more comfortable. For example, a favorite toy or cozy bed should help your cat feel more at home. Of course, bring his/her own litter pan and food.

Cat Show Hygiene

Cleaning Supplies

Every so often, we like to conduct a survey among users of this site in an effort to capture meaningful information about the Persian breed and showing practices. In this case, the subject of cat show hygiene has always been of great interest, as there is much to be feared when it comes to fungus, parasites, and infections.
