Persian Kitten Grooming
. Combing coats - "Your kitten has a luxurious, silky, long coat of fur".
The Persian cat needs a quick daily combing to insure against matts. Use a metal comb, not a brush as a brush will damage and break the hairs. Be careful not to injure your cats face or eyes as cats move quickly. It is quite common for eye injuries due to grooming. Move slowly and watch your cat's movements. If your kitten becomes restless, take the time to quiet the kitten then continue combing. Grooming actually only takes a few minutes a day, but will avoid hours of trying to detangle matts if left without a daily quick combing. Do not share any grooming aids that are used on other cats - do not share or lend your grooming tools.
. Trimming Nails- "Cautiously trim kittens nails every 3 to 4 weeks with a professional feline nail clippers".
There are a few nail clippers that are inferior, ask around if you are unsure. Here's a few hints on making your kittens nail trimming run smoothly without traumatizing or injuring your Persian. It is best to have another person brace and hold your kitten. This way when you trim the nails you can cautiously trim each nail without the kitten jerking or moving away. Lightly pressure each toe as you trim so the nail is extended out so you can visually see the entire length of the nail and while you are firmly holding the paw, you can trim the first nail. Be careful only trim the white area of the nail. The darker part of the nail is actually blood and cutting in this area will injure and hurt the kitten. Doing this . . . it might be real difficult next time trimming the nails, not to mention, now the lack of trust your kitten may have in you.
. Bathing - "Helpful Guidelines for bathing your Persian".
Start with your kitten early on so the kitten is used to bathing. Be sure the temperature is not too hot, they prefer cooler water. There are several professional shampoos we recommend. Since your chinchilla or silver persian is mostly white . . . TinyPersians.com's favorite shampoo is "Super White" . We also use a PH conditioning shampoo that is extremely gentle and after a bath the coat is a luxuriously, shiny, glowing fluff of fur. Rinse very well and have a table top ready with a clean towel to set your kitten on. This towel will offer comfort, security, provide a non slip surface and you can use to gently pat once to absorb the extra water. Now start combing with your professional metal comb, slowly and carefully.
. Eyes - "Persian require clean eyes free of tearing residue".
1. Eyes are carefully cleaned on a daily basis and before a bath. Use a sterile make-up cotton pad, cleaning the eyes until all the stain residue is removed. Use Castle Bath's Cat Eye care products listed under Anna's Cat Products.
2. Best to use an all natural eye drop (no preservative brand, single dose) to cleanse eye and to add moisture. This is an extra step we do, but not necessarily every day for all of our kittens. Some kittens may need more often, but I have found most tearing is due to humans . . . household products used (bleach the worst), how clean the environment is, laundry detergent you use on cat bedding all affect the eyes. So if you are an all natural person . . . your job is easier - less to no tearing. If you are a smoking household . . . count on eye irritation for pets. There are some Persians that tear more and it is up to a breeder to selectively breed for less tearing. Fortunately with the Doll Face Persians naturally tear less due to the less (show face) smushed face the cat shows encourage.
"The Persian Kitten's Nutrition and Diet are of great importance".
. Food - "Nutrition starts with the right feline cat food".
Your Persian's diet is extremely important. It is vital that your kitten is given pure, all natural cat food with the ingredients free of fillers and low in fat. Check the ingredients carefully. Our highly recommended brand of cat food is "Abundance". This all natural cat food is specifically formulated for felines with the highest standards of ingredients. It is used by top catteries, breeders of show cats. Read the Ingredients. Feed your kitten twice a day with canned food mixed with some dry cat food. Mix throughly and add pinch of water. If your kitten's more constipated add a little more water and monitor your kitten. See More
. Vitamins - " Vitamins - balances your kittens diet and provides added nutrition".
Vitamins make all the difference in your Persian kitten's health and well being. With the right balanced diet and a quality all natural vitamin specifically formulated for felines, will enhance your kittens coat to a luxurious thick, shiny coat. I have seen more than a significant improvement in our Persians and never miss a feeding without our highly recommended vitamins. See More
. Supplements - "Occasionally supplements maybe recommended by a Breeder and / or your Vet".
. Treats - "Treats can be nutritious and not full of fillers, fat and chemicals".
Cat Treats - such as Life's Abundance "Cat Treats" are excellent to encourage your cats best behavior when grooming. Other times surprise your cat with an occasional treat. Like children too many treats will interfere with their feedings.
I use them just before I do a daily combing and eye cleaning and give another treat right after I finish. Also, when bathing or trimming a Persian's nails leaves a positive experience for your kitten.
. Water - "Plenty of water is essential for your Persian - an automatic watering system is recommended".
I personally set out several water dishes, however, I have more than one Persian. Our persians have water in their recreational room, in their sleeping room and feeding area. We have automatic watering systems for our Persians to encourage drinking. Your kitten will be attracted to the water movement and with drinking will help avoid dehydration and/or constipation. Water is essential for good health.
Persian Kitten Health
. Exams - "Your kitten will need annual exams once a year old".
Your kitten comes with a Health Certificate with up-to-date vaccinations and worming details. Your vet will give you a schedule for your kitten to return, as your kitten will need several follow-up vaccinations until older. It would be best to find a Vet that specializes in felines, however, there are many qualified Vets to help you with your kitten's care.
. Vaccinations - "Keeping your kitten vaccinations up-to-date is critical".
Once you receive your kitten and take your kitten in for its first exam and schedule for the next vaccinations and worming.
Remember, Persians are indoor cats and exposing them to other cats could transmit feline cat diseases. Taking your
shoes off when entering your home is important as manypathogens can be transmitted just from shoes, for example ring worm.
. Worming - "Your kitten should be wormed regularly - every 30 days !"
Your kitten needs lots of sleep. So if you have children have them understand your kitten needs undisturbed naps.
Your kitten can decide when he or she wants to play . . . give your kitten the opportunity to rest and play comfortably.
Keep your kitten's bedding fresh and clean each day . . . I throw all blankets and items in the wash daily and "all is fresh and clean for your kitten . . . and FOR YOU! Why would you want it any different?
. Boarding - "Carefully and diligently research the best "cat" boarding center - before you need one".
Persian Cat Diseases
. Purchase from Reputable Breeder - " Your kitten's health starts with purchasing from a reputable Cattery".
Start out right! Find a reputable breeder. How do you do this? As you start searching and some sites hit on other breeders - stay away from them . . . they have trouble selling their kittens, so they attack others. Secondly, what are you seeking? A show Persian? A pet Persian? A Persian that size does not matter? Facial features? If you are seeking a healthier Persian, we recommend a Doll Face Persian. This is a less extreme faced Persian (less smushed face) which are less prone to respirtory problems. If you are seeking a show Persian, smushed face and want to Show the kitten or just like the look, the Doll Face is not a good choice. If you decide on a Doll Face Persian, there are reputable breeders that breed for health and the well-being of the Doll Face Persian. Yes, there are a few breeders with inferior kittens, but, it is pretty obvious when a kitten is of quality and what characteristic they will have.
Viewing photos of both parents will give you an idea of what your kitten will develop into, however, like all offspring are individuals themselves. Choose the color, sex and work with your choice cattery. Your experience should be a positive experience, not battling the "Cat" politics. We welcome your inquiries and reservations of a kittens. If we do not have a kitten available, you can be on a waiting list (could come up soon), or we will be more than happy to refer you to some fine Doll Face responsible Persian Cat breeders.
. Exams - Regular Cat examines by a Vet is important to maintain your cats health".
Once you have taken your kitten in for its first exam, discuss with your Vet a schedule of up coming vaccinations and worming that is necessary and when. Monitor your kitten's weight, keep a thermometer on hand, this way you have a base line to provide your Vet. Do not delay seeing a Vet if your kitten is injured, the sooner you get in the easier it is to cure the problem.
Wait too long and an infection can set in. If your pet is give antibiotics and it seems to not working - "this could be serious". Some times antibiotics do not work and have to be changed out. I have seen dogs have toes amputated due to delays. Never soak a stitch injury in water . . . it will weaken the tissue, stitches will come out and the area will not heal properly.
. List of Persian Feline Diseases - " How to protect your kitten from contagious feline diseases".
This starts with purchasing kitten from a reputable Cat breeder, preferably a smaller breeder, CFA Registered Cattery and the cattery being documented as a FIV, FeLV, and PKD Negative Cattery which are the most often the cat diseases one is concerned about. Avoid purchasing your kitten from the newspaper, cat mills, too large of a cat breeder or an unregistered cat breeder. Top feline diseases can be avoided with up-to-date vaccinations, not exposing your kitten to other cats, keeping your cat indoors and its environment clean.
