My adventure with Persians Cats started in 1994. Aja, sweet and beautiful, was ill with kidney failure. Aja was given only a short while to live, however she persevered for fifteen wonderful years. Aja’s time with me surpassed all expectations and it matters not whether it was my love or her strength that carried her, Aja fomented my passion for the Persian cat breed.

While out and about, shopping, we came upon a store named Jerry’s Perfect Pets. I saw this small furry thing in a cage and when she turned around, it was love at first sight. I wanted to take her then, but Aja did not do well with other cats, especially when sick.

Two months later, my Aja passed away and my husband went out trying to find that Persian kitten. They had transferred her and she was scheduled to be shipped to another store. He got there just in time to get her. Was I surprised! This little bundle of love. Victoria didn’t have a playmate and also my little Persian kitten didn’t like my husband. So-o-o, off we go to find another Persian cat for my husband. We found a beautiful blue-eyed Himalayan Persian Cat and we got him. BUT, Charles didn’t like my husband either.

So we take another trip to the pet store. They had a flame point Himalayan Persian I named Elizabeth and a blue Persian. Finally, Henry, the blue Persian, liked my husband. Now we have, and love tremendously, four Persian cats – but there is a problem. Henry plays rough, so we need a Persian cat that plays rough. We go back to the pet store and found this torti-shell that was also magnificent – got Henry a playmate. Now we have FIVE Persian kittens.

My sister calls me and tells me there is a seal tortie point Himalayan Persian Cat that is slapping at everyone – very unhappy –she asked me if I would go get her. I hesitated, but I love those Persian cats so much it’s hard to say no. So we get another Persian kitten I named Antoinette.

Showing Persian Cats

I decide I wanted to show some Persian cats, so I bought a white Persian cat with copper eyes. Crystal granded three times in the ring. I also purchased a red peke-faced tabby. Stafford showed with his breeder and won several championships. So now, I have eight beautiful Persian babies.

My husband and I traveled for a living. Being out two weeks at a time, our days – what did we do? Look in the paper for breeders or cat shows. We found two gorgeous Persians, one silver and one black. We bought bowls and carriers and took them back to the hotel. We felt right at home with George and Louis.

When we got home, I was looking for a housekeeper and kept seeing “Blue Persian. Needs home.” I called the number they gave. A lady answered the phone (she had adopted him). She said he was having problems using the cat box. I said I would come and see. When I saw him, he was so unhappy. These people couldn’t even pronounce his name, which at the time was Azure. I said what would it take to get him out of here. She said his adoption fees. I paid and we went home with another blue beauty named William. TEN babies now!

While at Petsmart, there was delicate lilac point Himalayan Persian for adoption. Diana was diagnosed with kidney disease and no one wanted to take on her health issues. We adopted her – now eleven babies – and Diana far surpassed her diagnosis. Just shows you what the power of love can do.

I decide I needed to build them their own environment. I painted the walls purple, had an artist paint renditions of Andy Warhol cats – one blue and one green. I had shelves built, put tubes on the walls, and carpeted the shelves and tubes in blue, red, yellow, and green carpet. I built a sunroom outside the room for them and their own cat yard complete with Liriope, dwarf Mondo grass, pave stone walks, and wonderful Azalea shrubs – PERSIAN CAT HEAVEN. My babies would live their lives out very happy.

Elizabeth was seventeen when I lost her. She was the end of my troop. I had purchased two other Persians that now live in my master, so I am not totally without my Persian fix.

I have always been in businesses with numbers and decided to do something fun and rewarding, so I decided to start a cattery. I have two shaded silver and two golden Persians. I’m just waiting for my babies. They are going to be beautiful.

That’s my story.
