Welcome to Precious Kittens. We are a small in-home cattery specializing in teacup, toy, and standard size doll face Persians. While our cattery is located in Southeast Florida, we offer shipping to most major airports in the United States. It has been our pleasure and passion to breed Persians for over two decades. After years of breeding many colors, we recently decided to downsize our cattery to produce only white, silver, and gold Persians with our main focus on health, temperament, and beauty. By downsizing and specializing on a few select colors, we are able to provide the type of attention required to produce outstanding family pets that are not only very healthy but also well socialized.
All kittens come with a USDA approved health certificate signed by a licensed vet. During this health check, kittens are blood and stool tested negative for feline diseases and parasites. Age appropriate vaccinations are administered including a feline booster. Buyer receives the vet signed health certificate at the time of delivery as the health certificate must travel along with the kitten.
Exam includes the following:
- Kittens are tested negative for Feline Leukemia (FELV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV).
- Kittens are stool tested negative for parasites.
- Kittens are examined free of external parasites including fleas, ticks, and ear mites.
- Kittens receive an overall check-up including heart, ears, and eyes.
- Kittens receive age appropriate vaccinations.
- Kittens receive deworming medication.
Our kittens come with a written health guarantee against serious genetic health issues. This guarantee is also part of an agreement requiring you to provide your kitten with quality care and quality food. There are a few restrictions including certain vaccinations such as the FELV vaccination and the FIP vaccination. Your kitten will arrive having tested negative for FELV; therefore, there is no point in administering that particular vaccination if your kitten will remain indoor away from cats with diseases. The FIP vaccination is extremely dangerous to cats. Vets do not administer this vaccination on a regular basis, but you should be aware of the possibility. We suggest keeping a record of all vaccinations as part of your Persian kittens health information.
Our kittens are loved and held from birth thus producing a very well socialized and friendly kitten. Persians are docile and quiet cats that love being indoors. It is their passive personalities that make Persians very family friendly. Typically Persians get along great with children and other small pets. Persians are also quite loyal. It’s not unusual for your Persian kitten to follow your around like a puppy dog. Persians also love to chill out on the couch and snuggle with you while you sleep. Like people, kittens also have their own little personalities. Some kittens are more friendlier than others. We strive to be honest and up-front about individual kitten personalities.
Prices and Payment
Prices are based on visual quality, such as coat and body structure, and personality. Our prices are also affected by the time of year. We accept major credit cards including American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. We also accept PayPal. Because we accept payments only when kittens are ready for adoption, we no longer accept holding deposits. The kittens advertised on our website for purchase are eating, drinking, using the litter pan, and socialized. With this in mind, there is no need for a deposit to hold a kitten as all of our available kittens are ready to go! Remember when you buy Persian kittens, do not send a money order as there are many scams.
We offer shipping to most major airports within the United States. Kittens fly via United Airline’s Pet Safe Program. Kittens ship and arrive on the same day. Being kept in a climate controlled environment, kittens are never exposed to harmful weather elements. Pet shipping via United Airlines is not available to all US airports, but this service is available to many major international airports. Only certain airplanes are used to ship pets thus limiting flights and space. The buyer (consignee) is required to show proof of identification at the time of pickup. Pickup locations vary depending on the airport. We will provide a complete itinerary showing airport numbers, times, and pickup locations. Payment is made on the shipper’s (our) end at the time the kitten is released to the airline. Buyer (consignee) will not need a carrier as the kitten will arrive in an airline approved carrier which the buyer takes home with the kitten. Food, water, and bedding travel with the kitten in addition to a health certificate. Major airport hubs include complete on-site vet facilities. In our over 10 years of shipping kittens, we’ve never incurred a n incident where a kitten was injured. The shipping process, pending weather delays, typically goes quite smoothly and kittens handle the process well.
Shipping is an additional $450 which covers the following:
Airfare: $230 to $250
Health Cert to Fly: $150
Total Cost: $450
