A persian kitty is probably the most photogenic cat of them all. Anyone who likes animals (and even those who don’t) are totally charmed by photographs of them…so here are some. I am happy to say that all the photographs (except the little one on the left) are by Helmi Flick and are her copyright. (the little one is courtesy a hobby cattery in Hyderbad India run by Shaji K)
Helmi Flick says that this little persian kitty was 8 weeks old when photographed. Helmi was keen to photograph him so young in part to capture his eye colour, which will turn yellow/orange when he grows up. He comes from the Pawdance Persians and Himalayans cattery.
A Persian kitten has a long coat so an indoor environment is best for protection.
>To maintain the coat it should be combed daily to eliminate problems occurring with matting and hairballs.
This little persian kitten is 4 weeks old and a solid chocolate persian male. Helmi says that he will grow up to be a big cat as his feet (and bones) are large. His name is “Panther”. Once again this kitten comes from the Pawdance Persians and Himalayans cattery.
>It is a good idea to get your persian kitty used to a bath when (s)he is young.
>Only give a bath after a thorough combing. Ensure that the environment, in which the persian kitty lives, is clean to improve health issues generally.
>Make sure that your persian kitty is vaccinated at 8 weeks, then for 2 consecutive months and thereafter yearly.
The picture is of “Heather” a golden shaded female Persian kitten. Heather’s eyes have just turned from blue and will turn to emerald when she is grown up. She comes from the Stardazl cattery and was photographed by Helmi for the United Silver Fanciers.
You an tell if a cat is a long or short hair by the length of the hair on the tail. “Ear furnishings” are the hairs that comes out the ears (like old male humans!)
>A Persian cat is gentle and likes reassurance and plenty of loving care.
>Make sure the environment that you both live in is clean (common sense I guess) and keep the eating area clean and disinfected if needs be.
>You can clean ears, eyes and claws with wet cotton wool.
The final photograph is of a self assured little Persian kitten named “Pawdance Mincemeat Spice”. She was relaxed enough to let her from leg hang out of the bowl. The picture was used for an advertisement with CatsUSA for the breeder and the bowl darkened digitally.
